Eastern is not going to be beaten by twenty points as some of you have predicted. You haven't played anyone of note, and lost by twenty points to the only team of note. You have no defense. Eastern has a very good chance of winning this game.

so good a chance of winning that Vegas made Toledo a 10 point favorite.... so you must know more than Vegas, or you are just going to never return to the board if they lose. That is pretty typical.

Nebraska was at least a 10 point favorite vs. NIU too...

We're not Nebraska...

If you're basing the chance of winning on the Vegas line, then it's the same thing, since the line was the same for the Nebraska game as it is for this game.

So a team beats the Vegas line. So what?? It's called an upset. Then you find out that Nebraska team is not very good - and the first two NIU touchdowns are on interceptions. If you were so sure NIU was going to win and didn't bet every dime you had on the game, then you are not very good at grabbing sure-fire opportunities. Once again, the point spread reflects the most likely outcome of a game based on a lot of people with a lot of knowledge about college football. Do you think this is what the blackjack players do in their spare time?

Well, to be fair, none of us do.

Just saying that a 10-point spread still leaves a decent chance of winning for the underdog.
