The football sports betting season is now in full swing with this weekend’s kickoff of the college football games.  But next weekend is when the bookies really start to go hog wild with the debut of the 2011 Week 1 NFL season.  Lines were available at Bookmaker.eu, typically the earliest to post lines.  Bet with your mobile phone.  Bookmaker.eu and the BetCRIS family of fine books are the oldest established online in North America.  Oh and did we mention you can get up to $2500 in FREE CASH depending on the size of your initial deposit (amount you open your betting account with).

Green Bay Packers vs. New Orleans Saints – This one opened at Saints -6 but has settled in across the board at -4.

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Saint Louis Rams – The Eagles come to town as a -4.5 road favorite.  This one originally opened -3.5 in favor of Philadelphia.

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Baltimore Ravens – The Steelers were +2.5 underdogs here.  This represents one of the few times you will be getting the Steelers as an underdog this season.

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Cleveland Browns – The Browns as a -6.5 favorite is a tough pill to swallow but these are the Bengals that are coming to town and oddsmakers have them pegged as one of the worst teams in the league.  Bookmaker has the UNDER 5.5 regular season game wins for the Bengals as the -150 favorite.

Detroit Lions vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers opened at Tampa Bay -4 but the action has taken this one all the way down to -1.5 and they were a pick’em at some books. 

Atlanta Falcons vs. Chicago Bears – Atlanta was a -3 favorite.

Indianapolis Colts vs. Houston Texans – There were concerns over the status of Peyton Manning coming into this game so some books were afraid to post a line.  Houston was now a -3 favorite after opening at even odds.

Tennessee Titans vs. Jacksonville Jaguars – The Jags were at -3.

Buffalo Bills vs. Kansas City Chiefs – The line has hovered between -6.5 and -7 with KC the favorite obviously.

Seattle Seahawks vs. San Francisco 49ers – The 49ers were at -5.5.

Carolina Panthers vs. Arizona Cardinals – This should be an easy win for the Cards as -6.5 home favorites.

Minnesota Vikings vs. San Diego Chargers – The biggest line of the week with the Chargers listed anywhere from -8.5 to -9.5.

New York Giants vs. Washington Redskins – The Giants were a steady -3.

Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Jets – After opening at -3.5, The Jets were trending towards -4.5.

FanDuel "Act of God" Clause Could Cancel College Football Futures

Many sportsbooks have stopped taking bets on college football in light of the Big 10 and PAC 12 cancelling their fall seasons.

With the Big 10 and PAC 12 officially cancelling their college football slate this fall, one has to wonder how this will impact the sportsbooks bottom line.  Of course, attempts to play in the spring would likely more than make up for any losses down the road.
