The Golden Nugget released lines for 250 college football Games of the Year today, opening up action for gamblers at 1:00 p.m. Pacific. The book had posted numbers for 100 games in the past, but it decided to provide even more options for bettors this year.

Five teams are favored in every game, including Alabama, Georgia, Ohio St., Oregon and Louisville. South Carolina, Oklahoma St. and Texas are underdogs just once.

Alabama has won three of the last four national titles and the oddsmakers are bullish on the Crimson Tide again in 2013. Nick Saban’s team is favored by double digits in nine of its 10 games that the Nugget posted numbers for. The lone exception is when the Tide travels to Kyle Field, where it is installed as a six-point ‘chalk’ at Texas A&M.

‘Bama is favored by 11.5 at home versus LSU. The next-shortest spread is 17 for a pair of games, vs. Va. Tech in the season opener at the Ga. Dome and at home against Ole Miss.

On a similar note, Oregon is a double-digit ‘chalk in 10 of its 11 lined games at the Nugget. The only exemption for the Ducks is when they go to Palo Alto as four-point favorites at Stanford.

Coming off an undefeated 2012 in Urban Meyer’s first season at the helm, Ohio St. has a legit chance to go through the regular-season schedule unscathed again. The Buckeyes’ toughest games will be at Northwestern and at Michigan. They are favored by eight and six, respectively, in those Big Ten tilts.

Georgia has four single-digit favorite situations. The Bulldogs are favored by four vs. South Carolina, four vs. Florida (in Jacksonville), six vs. LSU and nine at Ga. Tech.

Mark Richt’s team returns talent galore on the offensive side of the ball, including All-American candidates Aaron Murray, Todd Gurley, Chris Burnette and Arthur Lynch. The defense returns only three starters, however.

Louisville finished last season with a statement victory over Florida at the Sugar Bowl. The Cardinals stroked the Gators from start to finish in a 33-23 triumph that wasn’t near as close as the final score indicated.

Junior quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is a Heisman candidate and a potential No. 2 picks in next spring’s NFL Draft (behind Jadeveon Clowney, of course). The Cardinals bring back nine starters on defense.

Because of its schedule, Charlie Strong’s squad has a real chance of being in the national-title hunt. U of L gets most of its toughest games at home, including Rutgers, UCF and South Florida. In order, the Cards are favored by 10, 11 and 13 in those Big East games. They figure to get their toughest test in the regular-season finale as three-point favorites at Cincinnati.

South Carolina is probably going to be my pick to win it all in 2013. We noted its lone ‘dog spot at Georgia and there are two other games we want to mention. But first, let’s remind gamblers that Steve Spurrier’s bunch has beaten UGA three consecutive times and is 5-0-1 against the spread in the last six head-to-head encounters.

The Gamecocks are five-point home ‘chalk’ vs. Florida and they close the year as a 4.5-point home fave vs. Clemson. With a pair of quality QBs in Connor Shaw and Dylan Thompson and the best player in America (Clowney), Spurrier has his best chance to lead a South Carolina victory at the Ga. Dome the first weekend of December.

If prompted to choose one game in which I feel the line is off, I would say it's Florida as a two-point home favorite versus Florida St. This line is way too short.

FSU returns only four starters on defense and is expected to start a freshman at quarterback. Junior wide receiver Rashad Greene is the only returning starter at a skill position.

Florida lost a lot of key players, too. However, the Gators get Ronald Powell back after he missed 2012 with a knee injury. They also add a key transfer on the offensive line in Max Garcia from Maryland. Furthermore, rising sophomores Matt Jones and Antonio Morrison have superstar written all over them at the running back and linebacker positions, respectively.

Here's a look at the Golden Nugget's College Football Games of the Year.
