We now have early odds for a bunch of the 2018 college football season’s biggest games, by way of the Las Vegas sportsbook at the South Point Hotel.

These are via Covers.com:

There are no massive surprises that jump off the page to me. Michigan is favored against Penn State and an underdog against Michigan State, and those are both a bit surprising but largely explainable by one game being at home and the other on the road. Elsewhere in the Big Ten, Ohio State’s a narrow favorite to beat Penn State in Happy Valley.

Tennessee is an underdog against Kentucky, which is sort of jarring until you remember that as 1-point dogs, the Vols actually get a better shake in Vegas than they did for this game last year. In the ACC Atlantic, Clemson’s favored by double-digits against both Louisville and Florida State, two teams who aren’t that far removed from being serious competition.

Also, here’s a big collection of odds for just Week 1’s games.

Any of these seem like great value bets to you?
