FSU vs. Miami FL: Miami is coming off a great road win at Duke while FSU struggled on the road in their win at Wake Forest. The Seminoles originally opened as -1 favorites at 5Dimes and a pick ’em at CRIS, but now Miami FL is now -3 around the market. The Hurricanes are getting about 75% of early spread bets and we expect the line to increase to -3.5.

NC State vs. Louisville: Most public bettors thought the opener of Louisville -1 was too low, and they’re now up to -3.5/-4 around the market. The Cardinals are getting nearly 80% of spread tickets but this will be a tough test on the road on Thursday night.

Florida vs. LSU: Despite losing to Troy at home last week, the line movement has been toward LSU in this one, falling from +4.5 to +3.5. Tigers RB Derrius Guice is still questionable while Florida QB Luke Del Rio is out for the season.

TCU vs. WVU: Bets have been split for this one, but the line movement has been toward TCU, increasing from -12 to -14. We’re projecting another line increase to -14.5 at some point.

Michigan vs. Michigan St: Early public bettors like the Spartans, but line is trending toward the Wolverines at home.

Texas A&M vs. Alabama: This game has seen a ton of movement since the summer, with Bama now -25.5. The line hasn’t moved since officially opening on Sunday night, and the Crimson Tide are getting 80% of spread bets. This line likely jumps up to -26 and -26.5.
