College Football Lines Week 3: Opening Lines, Early Values


The early lines and odds are out for Week 3 of the college football season. What are the early values?

 Pete Fiutak @PeteFiutak

Here’s how the drill works.

Before diving into the research for all the game previews and predictions, I take a first guess at what the early lines and odds will be for Week 3 of the 2019 college football season – without looking at what they are. The real ones then get put in to see how far from the pin I am.

Before the public gets at them and the lines start moving, here’s the chance – like when Syracuse was favored over Maryland last week – to get in early on the fun. You’ll see there are some massive disparities, for what that’s worth.

So …
