    NCAA Football Futures

    Looking at these markets for 2020 I see that there are again teams like New Mexico, East Carolina, and San Jose State listed. These schools and all but about 15 have no chance to make the 4 spots for the Championship.

    Books need to be forward thinking here and not offer a team say at 500-1 or more knowing that they have zero chance winning it all.

    I understand people like to see a huge payout on a ticket once placed..but in NCAA Football there will never be a team like say Air Force at 200-1 winning the title.

    Forward thinking books should trim down the market offerings and throw a Field option in there. This would certainly drive more action to the market and it would make a future market listing from about 100 offerings to about 15.

    Free money for them, some Air force alumni maybe throwing down some cash just because. Field option would be nice, list the top 20 and then the field. I would never bet it anyway, too much juice.

    It is free money..just makes sense to limit the bet identities.
