12.06.2014

Fresno State opened as nearly 8 to 1 underdogs against the Boise State Broncos according to SBR Odds College Football line history. As of 1pm ET, the line has grown to as high as 14.25 to 1, meaning a $100 wager returns $1425 in profit. The highest payoff for betting this biggest moneyline underdog of the week can be found at 5Dimes Sportsbook (SBR rating A+).
