I'm sure the starting lines that the casinos come out with directly correlate to what the odds makers think the result will be. Any movement after that is only based on which side of the line gets more money bet.

I've also always heard that the home team automatically gets 3 points. I don't know how true that is, but home field should account for something. 3 points seems high to me, but what do I know.

I can see this game going either way. I can see us winning by 10+, but I can also see us losing. So, I personally would never put money on this game, unless the line was ridiculous. 7 seems high, but not yet ridiculous.
