Illinois lawmakers stipulated that sportsbooks operating within the state would be prohibited from taking bets on Illinois college teams such as Northwestern and the Fighting Illini.  This provides an excellent opportunity for out-of-state sports betting sites like BetUS.

The betting demand on Northwestern went through the roof following their upset win over Wisconsin in what was technically Week 12 of the 2020-21 college football season.  They had a 5-0 record after that game.

David M. Hale of ESPN wrote:

"Northwestern is a playoff contender. An offense that hasn't topped 317 yards since its opener is now 5-0 after beating No. 10 Wisconsin 17-7. Coach Pat Fitzgerald is winning with an old-school Big Ten model -- a ridiculous defense and an offense that somehow lulls everyone to sleep just long enough to score a couple touchdowns. How wild is this? Entering Saturday, teams with fewer than 300 yards of offense were 24-116. Northwestern moved to 3-0 in such games with the win against Wisconsin. Who needs offense in 2020?"

Following Week 12, Northwestern would pay out $5000 for every $100 bet with a College Football Championship win

They were very much contenders.  The Wildcats had the 6th shortest odds to win after Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Florida.

“We woke up the country now, and we need our damn respect,” cornerback Greg Newsome II said following that huge victory.
