Well, we were underdogs in most of the bigger games this year, at least at the beginning of the season. In the preseason, the games that Las Vegas already had odds on were Arkansas, Georgia, Florida State, Tennessee, LSU, and Auburn.
We were underdogs in all of them. Here's the difference in the lines between now and then.
ARKANSAS Preseason: Bama +2 Currently: Bama -3.5
GEORGIA Preseason: Bama +4 Currently: Bama -2
FLORIDA ST Preseason: Bama +9 Currently: Bama +4
TENNESSEE Preseason: Bama +3 Currently: Bama -2.5
AUBURN Preseason: Bama +8 Currently: Bama +1
Las Vegas sees something going on here. Pay attention, because they tend to be pretty good at this stuff. Like, for example, they currently have South Carolina at -1 for the Florida game. They have LSU a 12.5 point favorite over Florida in a few weeks, and a 21 point favorite over Auburn. Something's going on. Pay attention.
