As the Start of the 2012-2013 NCAA Football Season Rapidly Approaches, Some Major Sports Betting Sites Only List Partial Odds on the Opening Games. LowVig.com, Which Has Already Posted Both Sides and Totals, Offers Reduced Juice Prices Starting as Low as -105 Each Way.
Online PR News – 10-August-2012 –There a total of nine games scheduled for August 30th, the first day of this year's NCAA football season, however, most sports betting sites have yet to take any action on these season openers. This is due chiefly to the fact that many of these sportsbooks have yet to post lines, while others are offering only sides priced at a standard -110. Nevertheless, one online betting site is ahead of the game, having posted early reduced juice lines for the first 41 games of the season, including odds on 37 game totals. 34 of these matchups are priced at -105 each way while all totals are currently -108 each way.
One of the heaviest favorites in Thursday's openers is Central Florida, who is scheduled to play the Zips at Akron in one of the first three games of the night. UCF, who is preparing to move to the Big East next year, is currently favored to win the Conference USA East Division, according to a preseason media poll. The school is facing a year-long post season suspension after paying a $50,000 fine for its inappropriate recruiting practices, which allegedly included making cash payments to new players. Nevertheless, UCF is expected to come into the season strong ; LowVig.com has the team listed at 23½ (-105) over Akron . Most competing sportsbooks have Central Florida priced at 23½(-110).
Another favorite in Thursday night's matchups is last year's Pac 12 Champion, UCLA, who will face the Owls at Rice. Bruins fans are anxious to see how QBs Prince and Brehaut will perform under new head coach Jim Mora and former ASU offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone. Despite pulling off a division title last year, (partly due to sanctions imposed on USC), the team had an on again, off again season led by coach Neuheisel, losing to rival Sothern Cal a total of five consecutive times including a humiliating 50-0 shutout at the end of the regular season. In Neuheisel's last game with the Bruins, they lost the Pac 12 Conference Championship to the Ducks 31-49. Notwithstanding last season's woes, however, UCLA is currently favored -15½ (-105) over Rice at LowVig.com. The game total is priced at 56 (-108) each way.
Two other exciting Week 1 games are Boise State at Michigan State on Friday, August 31st and North Texas at LSU on Saturday, September 1st. LowVig.com lists Michigan State, with an 11-3 record and ranked 12th in the AP top 25, at -7 (-105) over the Broncos, who boast an impressive 12-1 record and rank 8th in the same poll. LSU was recently ranked #1 over Alabama in the USA Today Coaches' poll, despite their loss to the Crimson Tide in this year's BCS Championship Game. LowVig currently lists Louisiana State -45 (-105) over North Texas.
