The three biggest money losers were also horrible teams straight up.  This isn’t to say that teams with relatively decent records don’t lose money for bettors.  Michigan State went 6-6 SU but 3-9 ATS to lose -6.9 units for their financial backers.  BYU went 7-5 SU but just 4-8 ATS to lose -4.8 units for bettors.  Marshall did them even better going 8-4 SU and 4-8 ATS to also lose -4.8 units.

BIGGEST MONEY LOSERS IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL BETTING

AKRON (-11.1 UNITS):  Akron was an awful team SU going 0-12 this season.  Despite getting dealt generous pointspreads every week of the season they also managed to go 1-11 against the spread.  The Zips were dead last in yards per game by a wide margin.  Akron’s offense put up 242.2 yards per game with the next worst total offense being Rutgers at 273.1 yards per game.  They also had the nation’s worst scoring offense at 10.5 PPG or nearly 3 points less per game than Rutgers at 13.3 PPG.  Their total defense wasn’t that bad but the Zips scoring defense ranked #122 in the country allowing 36.3 PPG.  What’s most amazing about Akron is that they’re not one of the pitiful schools where losing is a year after year tradition.  They actually finished the regular season 7-6 in 2017 and even went to a bowl game.  Not that they did anything once they got there, losing 50-3 to Florida Atlantic in the Cheribundi Tart Cherry Boca Raton Bowl.

MASSACHUSETTS (-9 UNITS): The UMASS Minutemen opened their lesson losing 48-21 to a Rutgers team that would finish the 2019 season with a 2-10 record.  The highlight of their season was their only win, a 37-29 thriller where they beat the aforementioned Akron Zips at home.  That was also the only game in which they allowed fewer than 44 points.  They allowed 50+ points seven times during the season and 60+ points 4 times allowing a season high (or low?) 69 points at Louisiana Tech on October 12.  Like Akron, UMASS was never really competitive when they lost going 1-10 SU/2-9 ATS.  Their only covers came against Akron and a late season home cover against BYU.  That game says more about the Cougars sense of mercy in winning by a 56-24 margin as -42 point road favorites than anything about a strong effort from UMASS.  Losing has become a tradition at UMASS, a sad commentary on a school that once dominated at the 1-AA/FCS level.  The Minutemen haven’t finished with a winning record since going 6-5 in 2010.

VANDERBILT (-7.9 UNITS):  Vanderbilt has several things working against them.  First of all, they play in the SEC.  Even more problematic—they’re a school with high academic standards that plays in the SEC and you can imagine how difficult that is.  The Commodores have done a good job being reasonably competitive in most years.  This year was not one of those.  Vandy finished 3-9 SU/2-9 ATS.  One of their wins came against East Tennessee State in a non-board game.  Their other two covers came in SEC play, winning outright by 7 against Missouri as +24 underdogs and losing by 18 at Tennessee as +21 point underdogs.  The Commodores were 1-1 SU as a favorite but 0-2 ATS.  They were also 1-8 SU/2-7 ATS as an underdog and 1-7 SU/2-6 ATS in SEC play.

TEXAS STATE (-5.7 UNITS):  Texas State had a winning season in 2014 but has been downright miserable since.  They were 3-9 SU this year but just 2-7-2 ATS for a -5.7 unit loss.  The Bobcats three wins this season came against Georgia State, FCS entrant Nicholls State and Sun Belt Conference doormat South Alabama.  They didn’t get the money in any of their three victories.  The Nicholls State game was a non-board affair, they pushed against Georgia State and failed to cover against South Alabama.  They went 0-9 SU as an underdog and 2-6-1 ATS.  They put up a good effort in their season finale at Coastal Carolina losing by 3 as a +7 road underdog.  Their other ATS cover was more of a case of just falling inside the number as they lost by 22 as +28 point underdogs.  They also pushed at Texas A&M as +24 point underdogs.  There’s no reason to think that Texas State will get better anytime soon so they might be an excellent ‘go against’ next season as well.

NFL Betting Props – Super Bowl LIV MVP Odds

NFL Betting Props – Super Bowl LIV MVP Odds

The Super Bowl is the biggest sporting spectacle on the planet. As a result it also takes in billions of dollars at the betting window. There are reasons for that. The game sits alone on the schedule and with weeks of buildup there is an assortment of proposition bets available from beginning to end. You can wager the over/under on the duration of the national anthem to what color liquid douses the winning coach. There are also the standard spread and total wagers. One popular prop is the game’s MVP, and considering quarterbacks have won the award 29 times in the previous 53 Super Bowls it’s not surprising to see Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes and San Francisco’s Jimmy Garoppolo at the top of the odds board at BookMaker.eu with a significant drop after that.
