Biggest Money-line Upsets

South Alabama (+3000) at Mississippi State

 

South Alabama pulled off the first monster upset of the season. Mississippi State was favored by as many as 33 points over the Jaguars before losing 21-20 after missing the game-winning field goal with six seconds to play. Insult to injury. As is often the case in these big upsets, the Bulldogs paid South Alabama $150,000 to make the trip to Starkville.

Eastern Washington (+2750) at Washington State

Eastern Washington quarterback Gage Gubrud had himself a day in his first start. The Eagles were three touchdown underdogs but racked up 606 yards of total offense. This was the second year in a row that the Cougars lost to an FCS program to start the season.

Kentucky (+1726) at Louisville

A Lamar Jackson fumble late in the fourth allowed Kentucky’s Austin MacGinnis to kick a 47-yard field goal that upset Louisville 41-38. Back-to-back losses knocked the Cardinals out of the playoff conversation.

Pro Systems

2016 was another winning season in college football at Bet Labs. Of the 12 regular season Pro Systems, 10 returned a profit.
