Just in case

If you were considering betting the over-under scoring line in College Football, on the hypothesis that the rule changes would decrease scoring, consider this:

Ken White, chief operating officer of Las Vegas Sports Consultants, said that if a previous over-under (total points scored in the game) was 60 points, it'll now be 55.

He also expects the rules to favor underdogs."Fewer plays will keep it closer," he said. "It's like taking the air out of the basketball."

As the post below indicates, scoring decreased by 4.5 points in the first week's games, so White's conjecture seems pretty close to the mark.
