SEC Underdogs Cash


Out of the six games inside the SEC this past weekend, five underdogs won and covered the spread. Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Missouri, Auburn, and Ole Miss all pulled off upsets, as the five teams that lost all were ranked in the Top 25 (South Carolina, LSU, Florida, Texas A&M, and LSU).

Pac-12 Highway Woes

Five of six Pac-12 teams lost outright on the road this past Sunday, as Oregon State was the lone squad to win away from home, beating the dreadful Cal Golden Bears. The only team to cash in a straight-up loss was Washington State, who managed a cover as 40-point underdogs in a 62-38 defeat at Oregon.

Bottom of Big 10 Rises

Purdue, Iowa, and Minnesota aren't headed to the Rose Bowl this season, but all three took home the money in Week 8. The Hawkeyes nearly sent Ohio State to its first loss since 2011, but Iowa fell apart late in a 34-24 defeat in Columbus as 19-point 'dogs. The Boilermakers were shut out at Michigan State, 14-0, but found a way to cash tickets as 28-point 'dogs.

VegasInsider.com Top 25

VegasInsider.com handicapper Brian Edwards returns with another installment and this week's edition has less than half of the Top 25 consisting of SEC (7) and Pac-12 (5) schools. Alabama and Oregon still sit in the top two spots and then it's a logjam according to Edwards, while Florida State and Stanford moved into the Top 4. Five schools broke into the Top 25 this week, including Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Arizona State, Mississippi, and Central Florida.
