Oh, sure, sure. You just look for entertainment purposes. NCAA football betting isn’t something you actually engage in.
Unless, of course, you’re in Las Vegas.
Or your bookie Vito calls.
Regardless of whether you bet on games or not, there’s nothing like a good Vegas line to give teams some extra motivation heading into a ballgame. How many coaches over the years have uttered the words “Nobody is giving you a chance to win” to their teams? Thousands? Hundreds of thousands?
Well, below are the latest lines for Week One SEC action. Feel free to be outraged because your favorite team isn’t favored… or isn’t favored by enough. Enjoy.
