Week 8 college football opening lines: Florida State, Stanford favored in headliners

Streeter Lecka

In a week when the SEC puts eight teams in the AP Top 25, its an ACC battle that attracts the biggest college football wagering interest to start the week. This story was contributed to SB Nation by OddsShark.com.

The No. 3 Seminoles opened as 3-point road favorites at No. 5 Clemson in a battle of Heisman Trophy candidates Jameis Winston and Tajh Boyd.

In a week when the SEC placed a record eight teams in the AP Top 25 poll, top-rated Alabama was laying four touchdowns at home to Arkansas. Missouri (rated 22nd) hosts No. 14 Florida, and they get three points at home at most sportsbooks. Auburn at Texas A&M is another Top 25 battle within SEC borders.

The Pac-12 sees a Top 25 clash, with No. 9 UCLA battling No. 13 Stanford, and No. Oregon is giving 38 points to the Washington State Cougars.

The week kicks off Tuesday in the Sun Belt with UL-Lafayette getting 4.5 points at Western Kentucky.
