2021 MAC FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP ODDS

The Northern Illinois Huskies won their second MAC Championship in four years, defying odds and even hitting as a large underdog for bettors who took them early. NIU saw odds as low as +1000 to win the conference this season, with three other schools opening as +333 co-favorites. The Huskies beat Kent State in convincing fashion, one of the three teams favored to win the conference. Northern Illinois' victory is one of the longest underdogs to cash for futures bettors in the conference market this season.
