Heading into today's bowl games, there have been lots of shifting lines, mostly due to players ​sitting out to prepare for next year's NFL Draft.

One such game is the Camping World Bowl between West Virginia and Syracuse, which will be without Mountaineers QB Will Grier. That line has gone from WVU as nearly a touchdown favorite to three-point underdogs while Washington State versus Iowa State in the Alamo Bowl has seen an 3.5-point shift. These are easily the two biggest line shifts in bowl season so far.

And that's obviously a huge change when it comes to betting these games.

Washington State is still the favorite in the Alamo Bowl, despite the change, while the ​Camping World Bowl has flipped from West Virginia to Syracuse being favored.

These bowls haven't kicked off yet and we're seeing more lead changes here than we'll likely see in the actual games.
