Week 0 and Week 1 lines and totals had been available throughout the offseason, scattered across various sportsbooks. With Circa in the fold, we now have another shop to compare numbers with.
Here were the biggest differences from their openers to the consensus market prices, which you can check here.
Vanderbilt vs. Hawaii
Circa: Vanderbilt -7
UConn vs. Utah State
Circa: Utah State -27
UConn will be listed as a four-touchdown underdog in the season opener to a Mountain West team for the second straight year. The Huskies dropped last year’s Week 0 game against Fresno State, 45-0.
Northwestern vs. Nebraska
Circa: Over/Under 55.5
West Virginia vs. Pitt
Circa: West Virginia -5.5
Pitt lost Kenny Pickett to the NFL and reigning Biletnikoff winner Jordan Addison to USC. Yet, the Panthers are garnering some respect at Circa for Week 1 against West Virginia.
Some shops moved to 6.5, but Circa bypassed 6 and is the only spot to feature a spread shorter than a touchdown.
Penn State vs. Purdue
Circa: Over/Under 57
Make sure to shop around if you plan on betting this total: Circa’s over/under is 57, while the lowest comes in at 52.5 (FanDuel).
UTEP vs. Oklahoma
Circa: Oklahoma -32
Central Michigan vs. Oklahoma State
Circa: Over/Under 61.5
Georgia State vs. South Carolina
Circa: Over/Under 59.5
South Carolina’s rarely synonymous with track meets, but this could be the year we see some points. The Gamecocks landed quarterback Spencer Rattler — and tight end Austin Stogner — from Oklahoma.
SMU vs. North Texas
Circa: Over/Under 75.5
NC State vs. East Carolina
Circa: NC State -8
This marks ECU head coach Mike Houston’s second shot at NC State since taking over in 2019. The Pirates lost the first matchup, 34-6.
Boise State vs. Oregon State
Circa: Over/Under 63.5
