Saints-Bucs Betting Line

The Saints-Bucs betting line had visiting New Orleans as a -4.5 favorite.  More than 90 percent of those betting the spread were backing the Saints in this one.  Some books had the line at -5 already and we could see a move further up before all is said and done.

Tony Bryant of BetOnline.com:

"The Buccaneers showed tenacity, determination, and resiliency through the first four weeks of the NFL season, and while none of those traits showed up in a 48-3 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, the fact remains that it was only one game. Despite the loss, Tampa Bay is still a game above .500 and just one game back of New Orleans for a share of the division lead. The fact that the Buccaneers are still so young means that they are prone to inconsistencies, but this is a talented team that is capable of making a playoff push, and they did beat the Atlanta Falcons to open the NFC South portion of their schedule.

"New Orleans squeezed past the Panthers by just three points last week on the road, and now they are forced to show up on the road once again to face a team that is much better overall than Carolina."

FanDuel "Act of God" Clause Could Cancel College Football Futures

Many sportsbooks have stopped taking bets on college football in light of the Big 10 and PAC 12 cancelling their fall seasons.

With the Big 10 and PAC 12 officially cancelling their college football slate this fall, one has to wonder how this will impact the sportsbooks bottom line.  Of course, attempts to play in the spring would likely more than make up for any losses down the road.
