The 2014 college football season may not kick off until Aug. 28, but there has already been plenty of betting action on the College Football Games of the Year at the Golden Nugget sportsbook in Las Vegas. Of the 200 games posted on the board back on June 13, 118 (59 percent) have seen betting line moves, and only 13 (11 percent) of those adjustments have been less than one point.

In fact, 13 of the 15 matchups featured among the College Football Games of the Year that will take place the first week of the season have moved at least one point.  The two games that did not move at least one point both take place on Friday, Aug. 29 - UNLV at Arizona (opened -23.5 and currently -24) and BYU at Connecticut (opened -16.5 and still -16.5).

The biggest line moves so far include USC opening -34 and dropping to -26.5 vs. California on Nov. 13 and Baylor opening -6 vs. Kansas State on Dec. 6 and jumping to -13. Those are the only two games that have moved more than a touchdown, although Oklahoma has the second-biggest drop at 6.5 points, opening -14 vs. Nevada on Oct. 4 and currently sitting at -7.5.

Three other point spreads of more than two touchdowns fell 5.5 points, including Florida State (-24 to -18.5) vs. Notre Dame on Oct. 18, Oregon (-34 to -28.5) at Cal on Oct. 24 and Central Florida (-21 to -15.5) at South Florida on Nov. 28. Another big move worth noting is Kansas State going from -4 to +1.5 at TCU on Nov. 8.

In addition, College Football Regular Season Win Totals at the LVH SuperBook have also seen some line movement since they were released on July 13. Ole Miss is the only team that has seen a drop of a half-game or more, going from 8.5 UNDER -120 to 8 OVER -130. Other than the Rebels, North Carolina has fallen the most, going from 8.5 OVER -130 to 8.5 UNDER -160. The biggest gainer has been Iowa, improving from 8 OVER -120 to -170.

Finally, this is the first year of the four-team playoff to determine the college football title, and defending champion Florida State remains the favorite at 3/1 at the SuperBook. The Seminoles opened at 5/2 with Alabama the 5/1 second choice followed by Oregon (currently 7/1 after opening at 5/1) and Oklahoma (now 8/1 after opening at 12/1). The teams that have seen their odds improve the most are TCU (100/1 from 200/1) and Georgia (18/1 from 60/1).
