It’s a massive Week 1 college football slate coming up, and six spreads have moved by at least 3.5 points from their opening number. Stanford at Hawaii (Fri, 11 p.m. ET) takes the cake ???? with a 5-point swing (Stanford -9.5 to -4.5), including through the key number of 7.

We called on strategy and trading analyst Jake Fisher to help explain the big move.

ASK THE TRADER: “We saw this spread dip under a touchdown on Sunday morning following an encouraging Week 0 performance by Hawaii against Vanderbilt. These programs look to be heading in opposite directions. Stanford is starting its rebuild process behind a new head coach and two new coordinators along with a roster that ranks second-to-last ???? in Phil Steele’s experience metric. Meanwhile, Hawaii returns its starting QB, nine defensive starters and has historically had a strong home-field advantage.”
