Golden Nugget Lines for 2011 Marquee Games!

June 20th, 2011 3 comments

PhilSteele.com is a pure college and pro information site. There is no gambling information on this site. Any mention of the point spread of a game is to let you know who was favored and expected to win when the games were played.

Every year I do about 300 radio shows and a popular question this time of year is “Who do you think will be favored when XXX and XXX meet?” This is asked by callers and the hosts of the radio stations. I can always speculate during June but there is a casino in Las Vegas that is the first to put out some lines on the upcoming games for the 2011 season.

As you know gambling in Las Vegas is legal and the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas has had their numbers up for a week or so. Below is a list of all the marquee games that the Golden Nugget has posted for the upcoming year. Open is the opening line that they first put out and the Current has a number in it if it has changed since the open. The HOME TEAM IS IN ALL CAPS. This information is posted for news matter only.

2010 Best Case/Worst Case Scenarios: Pac-10

June 18th, 2011 4 comments

One of the more popular sections of the regional magazines was the Best Case/Worst Case Scenarios where I take a look at the 2010 season and what teams records could have been in the Best Case and the Worst Case scenarios. Sometimes teams with solid winning records caught some breaks and were actually just a few plays away from a losing record. Some teams with losing records may have been just a handful of plays away from a winning record. Listed below are the Pac-10 teams. The Best Case scenario record shows them winning all the games they lost by a TD or less. The Worst Case scenario shows what their record would have been if they had lost all the games they won by a TD or less.

Marquee Non-Conference Games: Who Will Win?

Today I will take a break from the best case/worst case scenarios. I released the non-conference polls the other day and hundreds of you have already voted on who you think will win each game.

Here is a look at how the early voting has gone for all of the marquee non-conference games.

September 3rd

1. Georgia (34%) vs Boise St (66%) Georgia Dome. Like last year’s Virginia Tech game, national title hopes are on the line for the Broncos and this could be the only game all season that UGA is an underdog. Right now 66% of you have the Broncos picking up the huge win on opening weekend.

2. LSU (47%) vs Oregon (53%) Cowboys Stadium. This game will feature two Preseason AP Top 5 teams and just may be the biggest non-conference game this season. As of now the voting is tight and 53% of you have the Ducks coming out on top but keep in mind LSU has won 17 straight September games. Read more…
