    I think that is a little overboard, but what do I know?

    I thought it would be more like 7.

    Those guys in Vegas are pretty good at what they do. Number doesn't surprise me but I hope the Buffs do.

    Agree, thought they would make it 6 to 7. If I bet sports and bet involving the teams I cheer for, I would find it hard not to bet some cash on the Buffs.

    On the road, against a team that has put up some impressive offensive numbers, that number seems about right to me.

    Too high, should be 7. Buffs haven't been a good bet for a while, but they covered against Hawaii.

    On the flip side their passing offense plays to our defensive strength. I'm not sure if they can recover from that blown lead easily

    Buffs cover the spread two week in a row would seem like improvement

    The betting line is not Vegas's prediction on the outcome. It is merely a tool to keep the bets even for each team.

    Agreed but those things are somewhat connected. I am not sure how much money is put on games like CU/Cal by fans and casual players but I suspect not a lot. If most of the money on the game is coming from the wise guys (or whatever they call themselves) then the line is more or less what they think will happen. This is coming from my very limited view of what happens in Vegas.

    And often very close to that number at conclusion.

    I think the 11 is about right. CU has not been a good road team (See UMass). People saying we have defensive strength is a little humorous to me. We were tough against Hawaii but they have one of the weakest passing offenses in the country. UMASS sits at the top of the Bottom 10 and they moved the ball against us. Our Strength of Schedule is pretty low and we are only scoring 25 points per game.

    11 is probably right. CU has been atrocious for 5 plus years in road league games. Not sure why this is even a debate. Let's hope they start a new trend, starting this weekend.

    Lose by 11, the team will be mad because they think they should be more competitive. Lose by 3, they will be mad because they should have won.

    Tough road out of this whole.

    Pushed against ASU, too. As far as Saturday's line, I think Liverflukes must have picked it........hes the one who says they are going to take their frustrations from last Saturday night out on us. I wouldn't bet on that happening-We're not very good, but Cal has been given way too much credit for their start. They've beaten a bad Big 10 team and an FCS team (and a bad one at that). Even if Cal is as angry as Flukes thinks they'll be, I still only see them winning by 7 tops. If I were betting on it, I would take us and the points, but I don't bet on our games as a rule.

    This is true. Goff (unlike Sefo) is really good at the deep ball. If we can take the medium to deep routes away, we have a chance.

    Do you even Berkeley, bro?

    It's okay for Cal to be angry in the first quarter.

    Soon enough, the anger turns to depression, reflection and loneliness. This occurs sometime in the second quarter.

    By the third quarter, there will be acceptance. Cal will fall into complacency and enter a zen-like state of non-violence.

    Finally, in the last quarter, Cal will be weeping like babies, looking for common ground, asking Colorado players for positive affirmations, and will make repeated requests to hug it all out.

    Wow. Offshore the line started at Cal -10, and now it's up to Cal -13.5. There's was definitely some big early money bet on the game.

    Think it will get down to Cal -10 or -9 before it actually begins.

    BTW who on your team is hurt? Our 2 safeties that were hurt are expected to play. Everyone else appears healthy.

    Addisom gillam should go, concussion. Adkins is nursing some sort of injury. That's it really other than the usual bumps and bruises
