Eye-Popping Lines

I shan’t get too crazy into the Nevada lines, but there are two games that piqued my interest when they were released this week.

1. Oregon is favored by 31 1/2 points over UCLA. UCLA lost to USC by a count of 50-0 on Saturday night. Rick Neuheisel was dismissed by the team on Monday.

2. New England is favored by 20 points over the Colts. In a season filled with a large number of double-digit point spreads, this is the largest I can recall. Dan Orlovsky will be under center for the Colts.
