UPDATE 2:30 P.M. ET FRIDAY: This line has come down over the course of the week in BetMGM's college football odds Week 3 market. Tennessee opened -7.5, went to -7 Monday, -6.5 Tuesday and -6 late this morning.

Multiple sportsbooks reported sharp play this week on Florida. That might be the case at BetMGM, as well, but trader Seamus Magee said his shop is rooting for the Gators.

"There’s no shortage of hometown bettors in Tennessee backing the Vols," Magee said, alluding to action in BetMGM's Tennessee market. "We hope Florida keeps this under the current spread of 6."

The total climbed from 57.5 to 58.5 Monday at BetMGM, but backed up 2 points just this afternoon, to 56.5. Ticket count is approaching 3/1 and money 4/1 on the Under.

UPDATE 2 P.M. ET THURSDAY: Most sportsbooks posted their opening lines Sunday, with Tennessee a touchdown-plus favorite, and that line is now as low as Vols -6. PointsBet opened later at Vols -6.5 and is still at -6.5.

Point-spread ticket count is 2.5/1 on Tennessee, but point-spread money is 8/1 on underdog Florida. The moneyline is at Vols -250/Gators +200, with the heavy bulk of early action on Tennessee.

PointsBet's total went from 57.5 to 59, then to 58.5. Ticket count is 2/1 and money 3/1 on the Under.

UPDATE 2 P.M. ET MONDAY: Tennessee hits the road for the first time this season, after a pair of home wins. In Week 2, the Vols (2-0 SU and ATS) weren't world beaters against FCS opponent Austin Peay, winning 30-13 while falling miles short as 48.5-point favorites.

Florida (1-1 SU/0-2 ATS) also hosted an FCS squad in Week 2. The Gators bashed McNeese State 48-7 laying a hefty 47.5 points.

TwinSpires hasn't moved off Tennessee -7, with 60% of tickets/58% of cash on the Vols early on.

"The Vols haven't looked impressive this season, or we'd likely see a lot more money coming in on them," Lucas said.

The total ticked up to 58, with early tickets and money in the 2/1 range on the Over.
