Join us and review this preview in which you can find all the major moves of the past few days in college football and of the NFL opening lines. Don't miss it!

NFL
107 Bears/108 Buccaneers-  The Bucs opened -2.5 but was quickly bet up with NFL picks to -3. Bucs still fighting hard in Jameis Winston’s first year.

 

113 Jaguars/114 Saints- Saints opened at -3.5 NFL odds this morning after last night’s unimpressive loss to the Lions.

 

119 Colts/120 Dolphins- This remains off the board as the Colts quarterback situation remains unsettled.

 

123 Texans/124 Titans- This game also remains off the board. Marcus Mariota will miss the rest of the season. Zach Mettenberger takes his

place as the Titans starter. The Texans finished their last win with Brandon Weedon at quarterback. The starter last game, TJ Yates is done for the year (knee). Brian Hoyer remains in the concussion protocol and might start if he is cleared.

 

125 Packers/126 Cardinals- Not a huge move, but the Cards opened -4.5 and some sharp money has shown in spots to take the +4.5. The line is now split between -4 and -4.5.

 

College Football
213 Akron/214 Utah State- Strong move this morning on Utah State. They go from -6.5 to -7.5 on sharp money. The game has not been bet all that much, but bookmakers don’t cross 7 that quickly unless it is sharp money moving it.

 

215 Toledo/216 Temple- Public money has been accumulating on Temple from the beginning. Temple has now climbed from an opener of -1 up to -2.5 and even some -3 is starting to show. None of is has been a move from a big outfit. God knows, the public wins plenty of these bowl games however. Interesting to see if the wiseguys come back on Toledo is the game gets to -3 everywhere.

 

219 Georgia Southern/220 Bowling Green- Sharp money has begun to come in on Georgia Southern +7.5. Bowling Green has shown some vulnerability to the run, and that is Georgia Southern’s game. A word of warning, the Sun Belt hasn’t fared all that well yet in the bowl season.

 

221 Middle Tennessee State/222 Western Michigan- Since my last Line Move Log, there was strong move on Western Michigan. They went from -3 to -5.5. Some money has now come back on MTSU for college football picks to bring the line back to -4 and -4.5. Wiseguys on both sides depending on the number.

 

223 Cincinnati/224 San Diego State- Switch of favorites here. Cincy QB Gunner Kiel will miss this game. His backup, Hayden Moore, has been pretty good when called upon. San Diego State will also rely on its back up, Christian Chapman, who played well in his only start.

 

243 Baylor/244 North Carolina- More injuries piling up for already injury-bitten Baylor. After being down to their third quarterback, they now lose running back Shock Linwood and receiver Cory Coleman. Lots of places have this down, but those that have it up have UNC pick or -1. Baylor had opened the favorite.

 

253 Louisville/254 Texas A&M- Since my last Daily Line Move Log, even more trouble for A&M. Another quarterback, even though he looked like he had the starting job locked up, has moved on. Louisville shot up to -4 and -5 since the news broke. They had been -1. Big trouble in Aggie land. Sumlin might be coaching for his job.

 

275 Kansas State/276 Arkansas- Another game that moved since the last Daily Line Move Log. Arkansas had been -11, now up to -13 college football odds.
