    Early lines on a few games of interest

    Auburn -2.5 vs Oregon. FSU -4 vs Boise. S Carolina -7 vs N Carolina. Memphis -6 vs Ole Miss. Cincinnati -3.5 vs UCLA.

    I am a little surprised by Ole Miss and UCLA in the underdog role. I would put both a favorite by at least 3 points.

    Not surprised that Memphis is favored - OM is not going to be very good this year and this ought to be one of the best teams Memphis has ever had.

    I don't know what kind of team Georgia Tech is expected to have in 2019 but I'd be tempted to take them +34 against Clemson. The point spread might be a bit inflated because of what Clemson did last season. Clemson hasn't defeated Georgia Tech by such a margin since way back in 2003. Clemson might be a bit complacent and be thinking their season really starts the following week when they play TAMU.

    Ole Miss and UCLA will finish in the bottom three in their conference(s). Memphis and Cincinnati are playing at home and will finish in the top three with UCF in their conference. I wish I could get both and 3 points.

    Underdog Lock of Week One. Boise State+4. FSU is a dumpster fire. BSU wins SU. This line opened at 4 1/2. Will probably be even by kickoff.

    Spoken like a true Dad. My son’s team might field a good squad too.

    Ain't got nothing to do with it - I despise Memphis, but I'll be surprised if they don't beat OM...

    The SBNation SP+ system has Memphis -3.8 and Cincy -4 but I think I would still take the P5 over the G5 although in the opening games the G5 does play with a chip on their shoulders. This will be a head-scratcher on pick 'em for me.

    Memphis has got better the last couple of years.
    Ole Sis is getting worse.
    Ole Sis could win, but Memphis would be my pick.

    If the Barn loses to the Ducks out of the gate the wheels might fall off early for them. But, I figure they'll squeak out a "W" with a lucky play or two.

    That possibility is why Oregon is not my underdog lock. Still believe they win SU.

    Auburn has one of the best Dlines in the country coming back. I think Auburn's size is going to kill Oregon and it could be the biggest butt whoopings on opening weekend if Oregon doesn't score fast.

    And that DL will be facing five guys with 153 career starts who are big and physical just like Cristobal likes them.
