Boise State Vs. UGA Spread Already Swinging Georgia's Way

Well, that was fast. 2011 college football spreads were posted Saturday by the Golden Nugget, including the Boise St. Broncos by six over the Georgia Bulldogs. I expected that line to slowly shrink by the time the Chick-Fil-A game kicked off, similar to the action of last year's Boise State-Virginia Tech game. Looks like Vegas isn't waiting that long.

One day later, UGA is just a 1.5-point underdog in the Georgia Dome. Hard to say whether bettors are wary of Boise or jumping on an undervalued Dawgs team, though the latter looks to be more likely -- Georgia's spreads against Mississippi State, Florida and Auburn all moved Athens-ward, with the Auburn line doubling and UGA becoming a slight favorite in Jacksonville. 

Of course, Boise State's 0-4 all-time record against the SEC might also have something to do with it.
