Live ‘dogs

Texas, Utah and Missouri received a lot of attention for their wins over high-ranked teams in Week 7 but it was a MAC school that cashed the biggest ticket. Central Michigan closed as a 20-point road underdog and captured a 26-23 victory with a late touchdown pass. Bettors backing the Chippewas on the money-line were rewarded with a return of 9/1 (Bet $100 to win $900).

VegasInsider.com Top 25

VegasInsider.com handicapper Brian Edwards returns with another installment and this week’s edition has more than half of the Top 25 consisting of SEC (8) and Pac-12 (6) schools. Alabama and Oregon still sit in the top two spots and then it’s a logjam according to Edwards, who noted that Missouri and Georgia are ranked lower because of key injuries across the board. Rounding out the Top 25 are schools from the ACC (4), Big 10 (4) and American Athletic Conference (AAC) member Louisville, who will be playing in the ACC next season.
