Colorado: 5 wins, +110 over/-140 under
Five wins for a team that didn’t get a single victory in conference play last year seems generous, but look closely at the schedule. The Buffaloes play 13 regular season games, as they scheduled four non-conference games. Among those four opponents are UMass, a team you probably thought was in the FCS, and Nicholls State, a team that you know is in the FCS.
These factors are likely big reasons as to why one of the most popular bets so far is wagering on the over for Colorado. CG’s Vice President of Risk Management Jason Simball told the Linemakers that betting over for Colorado, Michigan and Illinois seem to be the sexy picks in Vegas right now.
