College Football favorites fail to cover in Week Two

  • The top nine teams in the AP Poll last week all failed to cover the spread this past weekend.
  • Had a parlay been made on each underdog to cover the spread, sportsbooks would have been crushed by +33585 odds.

AUSTIN – Entering Week Two of the College Football season with eight of the top nine teams favored by three or more scores, college football bettors hit it big if they bet on underdogs this weekend.

Every single team ranked inside last week’s AP Poll inside the top nine failed to cover the spread. Those failures even resulted in Texas A&M, Notre Dame, and Baylor to lose outright.

  1. Alabama (-21.5) 20-19 Texas
  2. Georgia (-53) 33-0 Samford
  3. Ohio State (-44.5) 45-12 Arkansas State
  4. Michigan (-53) 56-10 Hawai’i
  5. Clemson (-45.5) 35-12 Furman
  6. Texas A&M (-18) 14-17 Appalachian State
  7. Oklahoma (-33) 33-3 Kent State
  8. Notre Dame (-20.5) 21-26 Marshall
  9. Baylor (+2.5) 20-26 BYU

Money to be made betting on the underdogs in College Football

College football sportsbooks would have gotten crushed had the public backed the underdogs against the spread.

If each game had -110 odds on each side of the spread, then a nine-team parlay on the underdogs to cover the spread would have had +33585 odds.

In other words, an all-underdog parlay would have paid $33585.23 on a $100 bet!

Not every team that failed to cover the spread in Week Two necessarily played poorly, but unexpectedly bad performances by Alabama, Texas A&M, and Notre Dame were surely noteworthy.

Each of those teams fell in the AP Poll, with Alabama shifting from 1 to 2, A&M moving from 6th to 25th, and Notre Dame falling completely out of the top 25 after having been 8th.

College football betting odds shifted as well following Week 2.

Alabama is no longer the overall betting favorite, as they are now tied with Georgia for the shortest odds in the country with +200 odds.

Futures betting odds of +200 offers a strong payout, but that does not compare to the +33585 odds that were left on the table by College Football bettors this past weekend.
