    Florida went from a slight underdog to a slight favorite. I would guess that the reinstated DT Marcus Thomas and the fact that WR Percy Harvin was cleared to play probably played a role in this.

    Then it's moved even more than I thought. Florida began the week favored, then as of yesterday, LSU was favored by 1 in some places, 2 in others.

    The books are just balancing the bets.

    When I checked at the beginning of the week LSU was a 1.5 point favorite. Now, Florida is a 1.5 - 2 point favorite. Vegas.com

    Exactly....... they always start out differently than they think it'll be to get balance. They can pit clients against each other then they get the "Juice".

    Depends on where "Home" is. Death valley, swamp, smurf turf...... definitely worth 7 points.

    If we do end up being the favorite when the game starts, we'll be the first visiting team favored to win a game in the Swamp since 1988. :)
