    Toledo opened +17 @ Missouri this weekend. Toledo was +24 at UF this weekend. This would seem to indicate that UF is only a 7 point favorite against Missouri. Either Missouri is vastly improved or the oddsmakers do not respect Florida.

    Or they were misled by the final score of Mizzou's first game, wherein they had a deficit at the end of one quarter against a terrible FCS team. They will be a much improved team this year, but they were terrible to start, giving up 195 first quarter yards--to Murray State.

    The odds only tell where money is being laid down at. There are a lot of score watchers out there. Honestly who would have watched either game if you weren't a fan. So if you extrapolate the scores, you would think UF struggles against UT and Mizzou romps against whomever. Fact is, I didn't watch Mizzou game so I have no idea what happened. I did watch UF game and the score doesn't reflect how dominant we were. UT had no chance of winning.

    The spread is about Mizz and Toledo and keeping the money balanced; it has NOTHING to do about UF. UGA being favored over the Cocks has nothing to do about last week.

    You people just want to be the victim.

    For the thousandth time, this is not how betting odds work.

    Too early in the season to extrapolate anything. By the end of September we'll have a good idea of which teams are great, good, mediocre or bad.
