Sometimes Vegas takes a side. On this game, the opening line was Auburn -3. 70% of the money was on Auburn, and the line actually slipped to a pick em by kickoff. The Sagarin predictor had Oregon as a 7 point favorite, so my guess is that that the Vegas oddsmakers saw Oregon as the better team as well but were willing to let Auburn bettors give 3 points for tons of money for the last month.
As it turns out, they came out with a push.
