It didn’t take long for the news of seven Florida players, including star wide receiver Antonio Callaway, being suspended for the season opener against Michigan to make a difference in Las Vegas.
Per Wolverine247.com, the betting line for the game had been favoring Michigan to win by 2 1/2 points. Thirty minutes after the news broke, the Wolverines are considered 4 1/2-point favorites at the Westgate Superbook.
The matchup, which will take place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on Sept. 2, has been one of the most-hyped early-season games between two traditional powers. While the Gators are coming off back-to-back SEC East titles, the Wolverines have risen back to prominence under the leadership of Jim Harbaugh.
