Sunday links — early point spreads and Nick Montana

Want to know if there are some early betting lines on UW games and what Nick Montana did this weekend? Then read on.
— I can’t find any links to betting lines for college football games yet (though there are a ton for NFL games). But the well-titled web site BlatantHomerism.com claims to have some spreads that are posted on-site at the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas. Two are for UW games showing the Huskies as 16-point underdogs in the season opener against LSU, but eight-point favorites over WSU in the Apple Cup. I wouldn’t be surprised if each were bet up a point or two, though, given not only UW’s horrid record straight up of late but also against the spread. UW has been one of the worst teams around against the points of late, going 1-11 last year (covering only against BYU) and 19-39-1 since 2004. Used to be being a 16-point underdog at home might be news, but it’s happened a lot lately. UW was a 20-point underdog to Oklahoma last year and 30 each to Cal in 2004 and USC in 2005, the latter two each thought to be the widest spreads ever against UW at home.
— Of course, the hope is that the future is a lot brighter than the last few years and one long-term reason is the commitment of QB Nick Montana for the Class of 2010. The Los Angeles Daily News had this story on Montana, noting that he attended a retreat for QBs in Maui over the weekend. (And when I think quarterbacking, I think Maui).
— Also this weekend is this look at non-conference scheduling from The Sporting News , crediting the Pac-10 for annually playing the toughest non-conference schedules in the country.
All for now.
