When it comes to offering the first available line in college football, The Wynn in Las Vegas is the clear-cut leader amongst other betting shops in the desert. Every Sunday during the college football season, the sportsbook sends out opening numbers around 6:00 p.m. ET for the upcoming week.

It’s well known that serious bettors wait for an opportunity to take advantage of mistakes they believe the Wynn has made on Sunday and attack with limit wagers. If the book is too long on a particular game, the odds are adjusted accordingly, which happens often. The line moves aren’t always right and some industry experts will tell you that some of the moves are decoys or false, but that’s for us to find out as the season progresses.

Each Friday throughout the college football season, we’ll inform you of all line moves of "Four Points" or more off the opening line and recap the results in the following installment.
