Abstract:In Las Vegas, betting lines are conducted daily on various sports events. The goal of creating these projections is to bait fans into betting for one team or the other. The college bowl season is a huge part of the year for line makers. In this talk, we will look at a couple of ways these betting lines are calculated. Then our goal is to collect data of various years of college football bowl games. In the end, our goal is to examine a couple of rating systems and find a general answer for a proper way to bet on these games.
