Golden Nugget, a sportsbook in Las Vegas, already has betting odds up for over 100 college football games. They have odds for nine of Alabama’s 12 games in 2012 – with no odds on the “cupcake” games vs. Western Kentucky, Florida Atlantic and Western Carolina.
Here are those point spreads, courtesy of Covers.com:
Michigan vs. Alabama (-12)
Alabama at Arkansas (+6.5)
Mississippi at Alabama (-31)
Alabama at Missouri (+14)
Alabama at Tennessee (+17)
Mississippi State at Alabama (-24)
Alabama at LSU (-2)
Texas A&M at Alabama (-20)
Auburn at Alabama (-18)
Vegas is obviously very high on Alabama, predicting 10+ point wins in all but two of Alabama’s games this year. It’s interesting that the Arkansas number is so low, given the change in coaching staff, but Golden Nugget believes there won’t be too much of a drop off.
The two-point LSU spread essentially makes that game a toss up, but they give the edge to LSU, presumably, on home field advantage.
The sportsbooks are also predicting another Iron Bowl blowout, but we all know what happened last time Auburn came to Bryant-Denny Stadium.
