The Nugget Vs. Sportsbook.com

,
Here's the comparison of the two GOY datasets I have. Games highlighted in yellow are different by three or more points. There doesn't appear any correlation for the teams in yellow. I'll be analyzing these further as I work to get the first team projections up next week.

FWIW, I'm 98% certain that SB rips those numbers straight from Vegas, so the discrepancies are a result of the action SB has taken.

Good info either way though.

Interesting. I noticed when I was putting the futures together that Harrah's and Cal Neva looked like they had the same starting point, but obviously we quite different now.

Really? I have been checking on a pretty consistent basis and never saw any of the discrepant games open at the GN number.

What kind of clientele does Sportsbook.com have? I'd assume pretty square, right? I'm really surprised at the discrepancy with the four listed USC road games.

If what ML is saying holds water, are they really taking that much action against USC?

That's what I've been told in the past, but apparently I am wrong:
