College Football Odds: Early BetMGM Big Game Lines. Where Are The Values?

·6 min read

The early college football lines and BetMGM odds are out for the biggest games of the 2021 season. Where are the potential values?

Pete Fiutak @PeteFiutak

As always – and like we do during the football season – here’s the drill.

Without looking at what they are, I take a guess on what the initial college football lines are going to be for the biggest games of the 2021 season. The real lines from BetMGM are added after to see if anything appears to be a tad askew.

The Early Guess is a prediction of what the lines are and not a pick of the games.
