College Football Lines Moves: Week 13

There weren’t any major college football line movements this week as no game saw a line move by more than 2.5 points. That said, the games that did see two-point line moves are all important games with the SEC West, ACC Coastal, and Pac-12 South divisions all hanging in the balance.

Here’s a look at the four key games with this week’s biggest line movements.

Colorado @ Utah (from -19.5 to -22.0 at Sportsbook)

After starting off the season 0-4 in conference play, Utah has bounced back with four straight wins, and with a win Friday over Colorado and losses by UCLA and ASU, the Utes could win the Pac-12 South. Bettors obviously expect Utah to take care of business against the hapless Buffaloes; Colorado fell to 2-10 SU and 3-9 ATS in an ugly 45-6 loss on the road to UCLA last week.

Arkansas @ LSU (from -14.0 to -12.0 at Sportsbook)

In the biggest game of the week, No. 1 LSU can clinch the SEC West and likely a trip to the BCS National Championship with a win over Arkansas. While bettors undoubtedly respect LSU, it seems that 14 points was too many to pass up on. Arkansas has been a consistent thorn in LSU’s side recently; they are 3-1 SU and 4-0 ATS since 2008 against the Tigers.

California @ Arizona State (from -4.0 to -6.0 at Sportsbook)

Despite losing three straight conference games both SU and ATS, Arizona State is still in position to win the Pac-12 South with a win Friday. Bettors seem to believe in the Sun Devils in this spot, which is a bit surprising considering Cal’s recent form has been better (2-1 SU, 3-0 ATS) and that the Bears are 7-1 SU and 6-2 ATS in their last eight meetings with ASU.

Virginia Tech @ Virginia (from +6.0 to +4.0 at Sportsbook)

The Sportsbook of this game will win the ACC Coastal Division, and bettors seem to be starting to believe in this Virginia team as they are 4-0 SU and 3-0-1 ATS in their last four games with outright wins as a double-digit underdog on the road at Miami and Florida State. Virginia Tech is 9-1 SU and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games against Virginia, but the Hokies are just 3-8 ATS this year despite a 10-1 SU record.
