Regular Season Win Totals, Conference Championship Odds and Games of the Year for college football will be released this Sunday at what was previously known as the LVH SuperBook in Las Vegas. But CG Technology (formerly Cantor Gaming) has already posted all of those numbers for bettors to wager on, giving them a good idea on what to expect leading up to the start of the season, with the first big day of NCAA football betting action taking place on Thursday, Aug. 28.

For example, teams like Georgia Tech (8 to 7) and Wake Forest (4 to 3.5) have dropped at least a half-game since Win Totals were released at CG Technology sportsbooks while others like Miami (7.5 to 8), Oklahoma (10 to 10.5), Pittsburgh (7 to 7.5) and Tennessee (5 to 6) have all moved up a half-game or more from the opening numbers. Meanwhile, schools such as Northwestern (6) and TCU (6.5) have already seen the OVER bet up to -200 after opening at -140. Boston College (5) could also see its Win Total eventually move down to 4.5, as the UNDER had dropped from -105 to -182 as of Tuesday.

In terms of college football Conference Championship Odds, Vanderbilt has moved the most so far, dropping from 250/1 to win the SEC to 100/1. Other big movers who have dropped include three Big Ten teams, Rutgers (200/1 to 100/1), Purdue (250/1 to 200/1) and Maryland (100/1 to 50/1). Two SEC schools have seen their odds to win the conference move the other direction, Kentucky (80/1 to 125/1) and Tennessee (15/1 to 50/1). Keep in mind, the ACC, Big Ten, Pac-12 and SEC are the only major conferences that have odds posted at CG Technology because they will have championship games.

On June 13, the Golden Nugget was the first sportsbook in Vegas to release College Football Games of the Year. Of the 200 games on the board, Kansas State at TCU on Nov. 8 has moved the most so far, as the Wildcats opened as 4-point road favorites and are now 1.5-point underdogs against the Horned Frogs. Other key games moving at least three points from the opening numbers include Auburn (-13 to -10) at Kansas State on Sept. 18, Arizona State (-2 to +1.5) at Oregon State on Nov. 15 and Florida State (-24 to -21) vs. Notre Dame on Oct. 18.

CG Technology has also posted College Football Games of the Year, and Don Best will have more on the SuperBook's numbers early next week after they are released to the public.
