    Default Michigan/Notre Dame

    First off, I am a huge Michigan fan and I know the rules about betting your team but can someone tell me why to not bet Michigan while the line is still -2.5?
    It opened as Mich +3 so theres been a huge line jump. I have felt all along that they are going to win and now the public is hammering the line.
    My argument for it is that they return the majority of a defense that was one of the best in the country last year. They hired a new offensive line coach and simplified the assignments for them and all reports are that this is the best the line has looked in years. Shea Patterson is a dark horse heisman trophy candidate at QB, which is better than we've had in years. The receivers are all going into their second and third years so they will be better from a play calling aspect. They also hired a new strength and conditioning coach and it was reported that 26 players have gained 10+ lbs. since last yer and 60 players account for 491 lbs.or over 8.2 lbs each for those 60 players.
    I am loving this team and think they are going to shock a lot o people this year.

    Anyone have any thoughts?

    Thanks and glta

    The game opened N.D -7 @ the South Point Paul Stone was first on line taking Mich +7 I was listening the day they opened College lines. Kinda tough to bet it now. GL

    Chris Andrews, South Point oddsmaker was quoted as saying after the Michigan deluge, " I guess I kinda overrated NDame."

    I guess he did. Also thereís a couple of other games that were off by a large # I canít remember off hand but I have them down somewhere. I think Vinny is the main guy there now or is at least consulted. Not sure itís on the other side town. Some of there shows I like I listen to Gil every morning Iím up at 7am.
