GOY action heavy for Texas-OU

Editor's note: Bettors can cash college football winners in 2009 by purchasing Mark Franco's discounted season package!

The defending national champion Florida Gators sit atop the preseason USA Today coaches' football poll and Las Vegas Sportsbooks have started to post numbers for the first week of the college football regular season.

Over at the Hilton Superbook the betting public has already started to get down on wagering on their posted “games of the year” and “season win totals”. If you have a keen eye, you may be able to find some great value on games that will be played in the upcoming months of the season.

I stopped by to speak with Race and Sports Coordinator Chris Graham to see what kind of college football action the Hilton is getting in the middle of August.

“As far as our games of the year, the Texas–Oklahoma matchup has gotten the most attention as far as the number of tickets and money written on the game,” Graham said. “We are still hanging this number at a pick but that can change as we get closer to game day.”

This game could have national-title implications and will be played on October 17th in the new Dallas Cowboys Stadium.

In Week 2 on September 12, Pac-10 powerhouse Southern Cal will head east to take on perhaps the best the Big Ten has to offer in Ohio State.

“We opened this game at USC -3 and the bettors are taking the ‘chalk’ as we now have the Trojans at minus 3 ½,” Graham added.

Another game involving USC that’s getting heavy action at the Hilton will be played on October 3 when the Trojans head to Berkley to take on the Cal Bears. USC opened at minus four and has now been bet up to minus five.

Florida is a double-digit favorite in every game on the Hilton board with the exception of its trip to Baton Rouge to take on LSU in a night game on October 10. The Gators are currently an 8 ½-point ‘chalk’ but that number could rise after Florida gets off to a hot start.

When looking at season wins totals, Graham said, “The public has been betting both Penn State over 9 ½ wins (-110) followed by Virginia Tech over 9 wins (-110).”

Of course, that could change now that the Hokies have lost stud running back Darren Evans, who tore his ACL earlier this week and will miss all of the 2009 campaign. This is a classic case of the danger gamblers face in wagering on ‘overs’ because season-ending injuries to key players can derail the hopes of cashing such tickets.
