tiny howard u. a mostly black college in d.c. beat unlv. they were a 40 POINT UNDERDOG.

"Longtime Vegas analyst RJ Bell said Howard’s win was the biggest upset in college football history, noting that a $100 bet on the Bison to win outright would have paid out an astounding $55,000. The Associated Press confirmed that it was indeed the largest upset in college football history based on point spreads, topping Stanford’s win over USC as a 40-point underdog in 2007."

according to covers.com howard was a 48 point dog

caylin newton, cam newton's brother is the quarterback for howard

pretty amazing - THE WIN WAS ON THE ROAD

in another big, but not quite as spectacular upset also in the d.c. metropolitan area maryland beat texas also on the road
according to covers.com maryland was a 29 point dog

I've never bet $100 besides BJ and craps. These games are supposed to be paid practice, they might have trouble getting a big school to play them next schedule. Back in the day, Ohio State probably didn't want to play Youngstown St. for this reason when Jim Tressel was YSUs coach. Sounds like the QB might have a future, with the Browns.
Looks like sh!t just got imaginary!

ESPN's story on the game says that none of the Vegas books had a line on it. Any idea why, considering that it was a UNLV home game?

I have a hard time believing the 550-1. An after-the-fact google search brings up vegasinsider.com showing that, but doesn't say which book was offering it. Even if those are the implied odds based on the point spread (props to the Wizard for being the best source: https://wizardofodds.com/games/sports-betting/appendix/11/ (everyone else stops at +20)), no Las Vegas book would ever expose themselves to that sort of liability. Can't think of any reputable online books would either. We can check the 35+ point spreads in the upcoming weeks and see if anyone really does have moneylines on those games

i was also wrong about howard. per covers.com they were a 45 point dog, not 48.

That's nothing really compared to my sorry arse...I had picked Michigan two weeks ago to destroy Florida. Then the suspensions of key Florida players and hurricane Harvey hit and the line went up to 5 1/2 and I chickened out as felt the game had changed tenor wise. As we know now, Michigan did in fact destroy Florida. Not as close as the score indicates because of two defensive touchdowns by Florida. A free trip to Phnom Penh and a huge start to the season all gone now because I was a sorry chicken shit. Now at least I'm not interested in college football this year. On to the NFL.

This was to be the year UNLV finally turned around under Sanchez and make a bowl game. Guess not.

Bishop goreman also lost, ending a 55 game winning streak. Bad weekend for Vegas football.

Wait until they play Ohio St, on the road.
The new stadium will help them recruit but I don't know if Sanchez will be around for it.
It's what you do and not what you say If you're not part of the future then get out of the way
