The College Football season might not even be halfway over yet, but there are a few bettors already smiling as some season win total tickets have already cashed. Here are four bets you wish you had locked in before the season started.
The Cougars currently sit at 1-5 after last weekend's 24-7 loss to Boise State, and after this loss, it becomes impossible for this team to top the 9.5 bar set by the oddsmakers. This five-game losing streak equals their previous worst streak of 47 years ago. This took place in 1970, meaning that most people in the stands had not even been born yet, and the BYU President was only 14. Let that sink in for a second.
Purdue Boilermakers: Over 2.5
The Week 6 win over Minnesota took Purdue's record to 3-2 on the season and tipped them over the 2.5 win total mark.
As members of the Big10, their season was never going to be easy, and their current losses to Louisville and Michigan were to be expected. But having blown out Missouri and Ohio, and after the recent dominating victory over the Golden Gophers, this team might be poised to stun a few more in upcoming weeks.
UAB Blazers: Over 2.5
With wins over Alabama A&M, Coastal Carolina and Saturday's victory over LA Tech, the Blazers have already crossed the finish line as far as win totals are concerned. Thanks to a last-second blocked field goal, UAB took home the 22-23 win over the Bulldogs and cashed some tickets in the process.
UAB was previously 0-5 against the LA Tech Bulldogs.
Baylor Bears: Under 7.5
The Bears had the weekend off, but it didn't even matter, as this ticket had already been cashed. The Bears are 0-5, and even winning out the rest of the season, it's simply impossible for them to pass the 8 win mark.
This poor start can be credited to the fact that the team has lost 41 players from the 2013-16 recruiting class who would still have eligibility if they hung around longer. In turn, Baylor had to bring in 31 new players alone this season, 27 of which are freshmen. This young cast of characters added to 21 injuries doesn't paint a pretty picture for the rest of the Bears' season either.
Kudos to those of you who sniffed this one out early, as it seems that the oddsmakers were WAY off with their estimations here.Join The Conversation With Other College Football Forum
