Biggest Money-line Upsets

UTSA (+367) at Baylor

Congrats to UTSA on its first win over a Power 5 team. The Roadrunners had been 0-9 against programs from the big boy conferences. Baylor is now 0-2 and has lost eight straight regular season games.

Oklahoma (+282) at Ohio State

The marquee matchup of the weekend turned into a blowout. Heisman hopeful Baker Mayfield threw for 386 yards and three touchdowns helping the Sooners pull away in the fourth. The win cements Oklahoma as a title contender and puts Ohio State’s path to the playoff in jeopardy.

New Mexico State (+258) at New Mexico

Recipe for success: starting quarterback throws for 400+ yards and four touchdowns and the defense forces four turnovers. New Mexico State did just that in their upset of rival New Mexico.

 New Hampshire (+250) at Georgia Southern

 FCS member New Hampshire beat FBS team Georgia Southern 22-12. FBS teams are 26-44 (37.1%) ATS vs. FCS teams in 2017.

Middle Tenn State (+250) at Syracuse

Brent Stockstill threw touchdowns on three consecutive drives as Middle Tennessee upset Syracuse 30-23. For their troubles, the Orange paid the Blue Raiders nearly $1 million to beat them.

Fade Ranked Teams in Home Openers

A profitable betting strategy for Week 2 in college football is fading ranked teams in home openers. In the last ten years this system had covered over 60% ATS. This year, it went 7-1 ATS. Tuck this away for next year.

3rd and 93

Mississippi State easily beat Louisiana Tech 57-21 and covered as 10.5-point favorites. What this game will be remembered for is a strange fumble (87 yard loss on one play) that setup a 3rd and 93. Spoiler alert: Louisiana Tech wasn’t able to convert.

Planted Flag

“We should have won by more,” Baker Mayfield said. The Sooners quarterback showed out in a win over No. 2 Ohio State. The cherry on top, planting his school’s flag on the 50-yard line. This was retaliation for the Buckeyes singing the Ohio State alma mater on the field after beating Oklahoma early last season. What goes around, comes around.
