LAS VEGAS—Formerly known as the LVH, the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook jumped into the college football betting waters on Sunday with the release of 35 season win totals and over 110 “Games of the Year” offerings. The new propositions join a market that already includes college football season win totals and “Games of the Year” from CG Technology, as well as “Games of the Year” from the Golden Nugget.

The maximum wager allowed on both the Westgate’s win totals and “Games of the Year” is $1,000.

With the Westgate now in the mix, bettors have the opportunity to compare the numbers posted at multiple shops around Las Vegas to gain a better understanding of the opinions possessed by a variety of experienced bookmakers. For example, the Golden Nugget posted the Oregon Ducks as a 13-point favorite in both their September 6 tilt against Michigan State and November 29 showdown with Oregon State. The Westgate, on the other hand, has a much higher opinion of Marcus Mariota and the Ducks this season, listing Oregon as a 15-point favorite against Michigan State and 22-point favorite over Oregon State.

Another conflicting viewpoint involves the North Carolina Tar Heels, who are currently listed with a season win total of 7 (over: -200, under: +17) at CG Technology properties. At the Westgate, North Carolina hit the board Sunday with a win total of 8.5 (over: -130, under: +110).

The full rundown for the Westgate’s Sunday release is listed below. Take note that season win totals do not include conference championship or bowl games.
