"Early Line" Likes Vols

There are early lines and then there are EARLY lines. The Oasis Casino and Sportsbook — which may be the earliest — seems to like the Tennessee Vols quite a bit. Oasis is already posting betting odds on some of the marquee games for the upcoming college football season, including Tennessee's Sept. 21 game with Florida and its Nov. 9 game with defending national champ Miami.

The line opened with Tennessee listed as a four-point favorite over Florida and a two-point pick over Miami.

What does that mean? Not much. Vegas oddsmakers installed Tennessee as a 17-point underdog at Florida last December, yet the Vols dominated the game and won impressively.
