"We have nearly as much liability on the Colorado ML today vs. Oregon as we did for the Buffs' boosted CFP Championship odds on Prime Day. Let that sink in for a moment," BetOnline tells us. 


The BetOnline Prime Day boost was as follows:

The BetOnline PRIME Day promotion that increased Colorado's CFP Championship odds from 100/1 to 500/1 led to “millions & millions” of futures liability on the Buffaloes.

98% of Moneyline bets are on Colorado (+650) to upset Oregon this Saturday.

Both Oregon and Colorado came into Saturday's Week 4 game with 3-0 odds.  The Buffaloes have already trippled their wins from last year (1).  But Colorado also came into this game as a +21 dog after opening at +16.  The bookmakers opinion on this one - the Ducks covering - was pretty obvious.

Colorado got destroyed in their game against the Ducks and the books made out like bandits.

This was the afternoon CFB action:

Colorado at Oregon (-21.5, 70)

52.8% of $ on Colorado +21

51.5% of $ on Oregon ML -800

61.7% of $ on OVER


UCLA at Utah (-3, 51.5)
