Lines are out in Vegas for the start of the college football season. 5Dimes has given you an early chance to place your bets for the season opener in Australia.
Cal is expected to handily win their season opener against Hawaii down under. The Bears open as three-touchdown favorites against the Rainbow Warriors, opening as 22.5-point favorites overall.
More openers via 5Dimes: BYU -1.5 Ariz; Stan -18.5 KSU; SCar -3 Vandy; Cal -22.5 Hawaii; Minn -6 OreSt; Col -5 CSU; GT -2.5 BC; UW -20.5 RU— Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyESPN) May 6, 2016
Hawaii was not a good football team in 2016. The Hawaii Warriors finished 3–10 in the Mountain West, going 0–8 in-conference. Ironically, their one major win against a Power 5 school came against Colorado in the season opener before dropping ten of their next eleven games. The California Golden Bears are losing a chunk of talent, but they should be more than well-equipped to handle Hawaii if they're on their game.
Cal fans, your thoughts on this early line? Where would you make your early bet on this one?
