If you are looking for point spread converted to win percentage, it’s based on a graph and a whole lot more math I’m not willing to do. Here’s a link with different sports that gives you a good baseline.

Thanks for providing this. We should slightly adjust these odds down for college football, however, because it’s a less efficient market than the NFL and a 7 point favorite in the NFL is more likely to outright win the game than a 7 point NCAAF favorite.

Scroll down. There’s links below the charts for college football and other sports.

Ah, great stuff. And like I said, a 7 point fave is a bit less for the NCAAF (70%) than NFL (75%).

If anyone wants to see lots of look-ahead lines for college and pro, oddschecker.com is great. I use that site for odds on NFL player props which are very hard to source and track lines for fantasy football.

On fanduel sportsbook I see a few of our lines avaliable. -3.5 vs Mich State, -14 vs Wake, -7 vs UVA, -6.5 vs FSU. Figured I’d share. Thoughts?
Vegas knows you are suppose to beat teams you are better than. Problem is Miami as a huge favorite plays down to the competition. Losing 3 times last year as a huge favorite. So what does that tell you about the coaching staff? Will this season be different?

Until we show we can beat even the FIU’s and La Techs of the world we got no business being two TD favorites over anyone or favored for that matter....I love the Canes but Manny has to show me he can coach before I get thrashed like last year.....

Mich St should be on par with a mid level ACC team and should tell us a lot about this team and like a mid level ACC team we should beat them by 2-3 TDS.....let’s see if we do.

Wouldn't touch the FSU game ever and usually stay away from rivalries.

Like another poster said MSU is screaming free money. Probably buy a half point to get it down to 3.

Just went to Vegas and put 1k on us to win the ACC.... 10to 1 odds...

The offseason got me.
Assuming you think we walk to Charlotte due to an awful Coastal and a super easy schedule, getting 10-1 on a single game vs Clemson seems like a pretty solid bet to me.
