For the second week in a row, Savannah State enters a college football game as an underdog of unprecedented proportions.
The Tigers travel to Florida State on Saturday, and the Seminoles have been installed as 70.5-point favorites. R.J. Bell, an ESPN radio host and the CEO of Pregame.com, says that it is the first 70-point spread in the history of gambling on college football.
Last weekend, SSU travelled to Stillwater as a then-record 67.5-point underdog to Oklahoma State and proceeded to lose, 84–0. The folks in Las Vegas must have figured that since the Cowboys easily beat the spread and that FSU is ranked higher (No. 6 in the AP Poll) than the Pokes (No. 18), the ‘Noles merited another three points.
Does the bettor who cashed in on Texas State’s upset of Houston last Saturday have the guts to put a wager on this game, too?
