2015 College Football: Games of the Year at the Golden Nugget

Last week we published an article detailing a number of Game of the Year lines from 5Dimes — a prominent offshore sportsbook. These odds offering some insight into some of the best games on the calendar, however, the limits were only $250 and they were charging -120 juice on each side.

On Friday afternoon, Golden Nugget became the first Las Vegas based sportsbook to post lines for these Games of the Year. Although the season doesn’t kick off for several months, Golden Nugget is accepting limits 4 times higher than offshore with a $1000 max bet on each game.

The list below features the current Golden Nugget lines. Thanks to David Payne Purdum for first posting these odds.
