The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook released its renowned 2016 College Football Games of the Year numbers for the coming season.

Let’s take a look all of the numbers from the Futures Book over at the SuperBook and make some early picks from this lengthy buffet of College Football point spreads which can only mean that the actual games will be here before we know it.

The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook released its much-anticipated NCAAF Games of the Year—as well as 2016 College Football Team Win Totals—along with individual College Football Conference Championship College Football Odds and Regular Season Team Win Totals last Saturday, and as you will notice, there are a large number of Road teams favored, especially in SEC intra-conference matchups. And California (1,000 to win CFB Championship; opened 300/1) is obviously pretty down this season for some of these Games of the Year spreads we’re seeing against the Golden Bears. But then again, star QB Jared Goff has headed to the NFL—the 21-year-old was the #1 overall college football pick and was taken by the Los Angeles Rams in the NFL Draft—as did fellow Cal Offensive skill position players Trevor Davis (WR/KR, Green Bay Packers), Daniel Lasco (RB, New Orleans Saints) and Kenny Lawler (WR, Seattle Seahawks). So 4th-year Golden Bears Head Coach Sonny Dykes (13-21 ATS) really has his work cut out for him this Fall in Berkeley.

The biggest favorites in the Games of the Year both come near the end of the Regular Season on Saturday, Nov. 26 when Kansas State hosts intra-state rival Kansas at Bill Snyder Family Stadium in Manhattan (-24; KSU W7 ATS vs KS) in the Governor’s Cup and when Deshaun Watson (+450 to win Heisman Trophy) and Clemson host intra-state rival South Carolina at Clemson Memorial Stadium in Clemson (-24). The three next highest point spreads in this Futures sportsbooks marketplace see Boise State as healthy 21½-point chalks over UNLV at Albertson’s Stadium in Boise, Idaho on Friday, Nov 18; Baker Mayfield (12/1 to win Heisman Trophy) and Oklahoma as 18-point favorites against host Iowa State at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames on Nov. 3; and, Louisville as 17½-point Home favorites over Duke at Joe Aillet Stadium in Louisville on Friday Oct. 14.

Here are all of the opening numbers for the 2016 College Football Games of the Year for select NCAA Division I FBS games posted on Saturday (July 9) (HOME TEAM IN CAPS):

A Couple of Really Big NCAAF Games Within the SuperBook Games of the Year Menu

One game on this 2016 Games of the Year slate which looks like it could have both conference (ACC) and possibly national title implications is the showdown at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee on Saturday, October 29, 2016 between Dalvin Cook (12/1 to win Heisman Trophy) and host Florida State and Watson and Clemson (FSU -3) with both possibly coming into the game undefeated. Least year head Coach Dabo Swinney (42-41-1 ATS) and the Tigers defeated the Seminoles at Clemson, 23-13, with FSU covering as a 10½-point underdog by a mere ½ point. The Tigers are 3-0 ATS their L3 games at Florida State and Clemson is 5-2 ATS the L7 overall in the series.

Another game that seems destined to have some impact on who will have the inside lane to being one of the four teams to play in either the Fiesta Bowl or the Peach Bowl (Dec. 31) and make this third CFB Playoff National Championship is the SEC showdown between Calvin Ridley (30/1 to win Heisman Trophy) and Alabama and Leonard Fournette (5/1 to win Heisman Trophy) and host LSU at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge on Saturday, Nov. 5 (LSU -1). Last season the Crimson Tide beat LSU, 30-16 in Tuscaloosa and covered ATS as 7½-point chalks and Alabama is 4-1 ATS the L5 against the Bayou Bengals.

The 2016 College Football season kicks off in six weeks Down Under in Australia on Aug. 27 when Cal faces Hawaii in the Sydney Cup at ANZ Stadium (CAL -22 at 5Dimes).
