Picking every single Golden Nugget Game of the Year

The Golden Nugget released their early college football lines from Vegas today. They are the first official Vegas odds for the 2015 season, so I though I would go through and pick every single game and see what my record is at the end of the season according to the opening lines.

I’m also going to be in Vegas shortly so I think I’ll bet on a few of these and see how I do.

Note that these are only on the line, not who I think will win or lose. I’ll be interested to see how I do when I go back in December and look at these picks. I’ll try to keep a running tally of them as I pick games on current lines throughout the season.

If we’re keeping track of my picks in the past, here is how I have done the last two years of keeping track of this kind of thing. I have gone back and forth from doing against the spread or straight up. All of these will be ATS.

2014 Regular Season ATS: 49-35
2015 Regular Season Straight-up: 132-42
2015 Bowl Season Straight-up: 24-13
2015 Bowl Season ATS: 25-12
