  • Villanova +1200
  • Eastern Washington +1400

North Dakota State are the heavier favorites and rightfully so being so that they have won the last three FCS Championships in a row as mentioned before. Not only have they won the last three, but they have also won eight of the last nine championships as well.

With Trey Lance entering the draft, this might seem like a huge blow for NDSU as he is coming off of a 2019 season where he put up 2,786 yards, 28 passing touchdowns, 1,100 rush yards and 14 rushing touchdowns. Stepping in for Lance though is three-star Iowa State backup, Zeb Noland, who is hungry to lead the Bison this season.

For those bettors that are not yet convinced on North Dakota State under their new quarterback, now could also be the time to explore other options that would offer a bigger payout.

Starting with the Weber State Wildcats, they could be a viable option that could help cash bettors out. They are currently the three-time defending Big Sky Champions and also advanced to the FCS semifinals for the first-time last season as well. Being that they have shown that they have what it takes to move on to the next level, now might be there best chance seeing how NDSU will be missing their best player.

One Darkhorse team here to keep an eye on is also the Northern Iowa Panthers. They opened up the season second in the rankings and have since moved back one spot. However, they are poised to make a run this year, as their defense is one of the best throughout the FCS. Also, their quarterback Will McElvain has proven that he is among the best quarterbacks in the country as he is coming off of a freshman season where he put up 2,778 yards and 20 touchdowns.
