The First Over/Under's of the Year Published, Bearcats 9.5

Its a joyful day for the college football betters amoungst us. I am not one of them. I was, but I am not anyone. A certain lack of funds having the most to do with that. And no, the lack of funds isn't from my gambling losses.

These lines come courtesy of 5dimes.com. The mothership has all the available lines in handy chart form. This is the point where I mention that what follows is just for fun. The over under for the Bearcats has been placed at 9.5. The over is currently going off at +120, the under at -160.

I think that the over/under is right in line with what I view to be the general concensus of most UC fans. It isn't that much of a surprise that the sports books think UC will have a somewhat strong season. Vegas has long held the Bearcats in much higher esteem than the general public. Here are some other over/unders of note.

Central Florida 8.5; Over (+125) Under (-165)

Connecticut 5.5; Over (-140) Under (+100)

Houston 5.5; Over (+120) Under (-160)

Illinois 3.5; Over (-160) Under (+120)

Louisville 10.5; Over (-130) Under (-110)

Purdue 5.5; Over (+175) Under (-245)

Rutgers 6.5; Over (+110) Under (-150)

SMU 5.5; Over (+140) Under (-180)
