Potential badass GBH sponsor the Golden Nugget has released lines on what it deems the "Games of the Year" for 2015. I know, I was as surprised as you are that people wager monies on college sports.
It's not even July, so expect some of these to swing quite a bit by kickoff, but it's still intriguing to see Vegas' wheels turning. Here are the Nugget's A&M spreads:
|Date||Opponent||Location||Spread||Gards' EARLY Pick|
|September 5||Arizona State||Houston||A&M -3||Arizona State +3|
|September 26||Arkansas||Arlington||Arkansas -6.5||A&M +6.5|
|October 3||Mississippi State||College Station||A&M -6.5||Mississippi State +6.5|
|October 17||Alabama||College Station||Alabama -7||A&M +7|
|October 24||Ole Miss||Oxford||Ole Miss -4||A&M +4|
|October 31||South Carolina||College Station||A&M -10||South Carolina +10|
|November 7||Auburn||College Station||Auburn -1.5||A&M +1.5|
|November 28||LSU||Baton Rouge||LSU -7.5||A&M +7.5|
No matter the year, I wind up betting a lot of dogs. I like the points. Out of the eight A&M games that the Golden Nugget has set spreads for, the Aggies are underdogs in five.
What are your thoughts? Gig 'em.
