Unfortunately you might have to either leave the state temporarily or have an out of state friend place the bet for you. I don't think you can bet on Illinois college teams while in Illinois.

With that said I used Barstool Sportsbook living out of state.

I know it's dumb, but I enjoy throwing YOLO bets on my favorite teams sometimes to spice up the season. In this case with NIU I think there's actual value in addition to the usual extra fun factor. Hope you figure out a way to do it 04-rock
Correct. Anyone registered to a legal betting site in IL can’t bet on an IL college team even if they log in out of state. At this point I don’t recommend going to an illegal offshore site for 1 bet. Legal sites like Points Bet and Fan Dual are way easier to move funds, better promos, odds, etc.

Indiana, Michigan. You can sign up while in those states online, or go to casino. FanDual will let you use same acct to bet in either state.

Also is Bovada. Signed up long time ago, rarely use is and haven't cashed our in forever. They do have 150-1 NIU to win division. Although it says I bet "Northern Illionis." 03-lmfao

FanDuel has NIU at 160-1 to win west.

May need to drive to Indiana to double down.

RE: NIU odds to win MAC
NIU is now 50/1 to win the conference. Which is still a good bet but I’m glad I got my money down when it was 250/1.

How have the odds changed for all the other teams?

The value on that was insane. Obviously odds are still stacked against us but my god. Glad I got in then too.

sorry. Posted a thumbnail first time. This was On the new Ceasers site that floods all your commercials. Can’t bet on bovada or FanDuel for Mac winners anymore

Thanks.

I found this here but thought it may have not been updated from the preseason but the date is 9/13/21 so it may actually be current as of 4 days ago. Looks like the odds are provided by BetMGM.

https://www.vegasinsider.com/college-foo...mpionship/

Interesting that the odds aren’t too far off other than EMU. Makes you wonder what someone may know. Personally, I haven’t seen anything from EMU thus far to suggest that they should have twice the better odds than NIU, value is terrible at Ceasars for EMU.

Not to mention that odds on Ohio look waaaaaaay off. Ohio looks like a bottom three team in the MAC right now

RE: NIU odds to win MAC
What’s great is I put $20 on NIU to win the division. That would give me $3k to cover the expense of going to the MACC and watch in person if I can win another 10k.

I mean, is it really a good value if there is no chance of it happening?

He’s not talking about EMU.

Serious question, when was the last time EMU won even a division championship in football?

When is the last time EMU finished in the top half of the MAC West in football? Again, not rhetorical. Answer please.

I doubt they’ve won the west. EMU has barely made any bowl games. And that’s almost impossible to do in this bowl crazy era. Easily the rock bottom team in the west and always have been.

No one in the MAC looks like the clear cut top team or is loaded 4 and 5 star players. NIU now gets into the easier portion of its schedule.

Odds now sit at 30/1, which are the same as MiamiU and OhioU.

MiamiU was my preseason favorite to win the East, not sure how I was feeling about that a few weeks into the season but if Gabbert is healthy, I’ll ride with that choice. So obviously, I think MiamiU should have better odds.

OhioU on the other hand has looked like total crap and that win against Akron yesterday, in which they struggled early, didn’t do much in changing my opinion. NIU should have better odds than OhioU, even with the disparity in the two divisions.

NIU finally has better odds than EMU, which it should have had all along. And should always have. In perpetuity. Take that.

And one more thing, EMU is lucky to have the Gorton’s fisherman steering its boat (so many boat/football analogies in Michigan). Don’t lose sight that you are EMU.

Akron was supposedly starting its 3rd string QB and it took Ohio until late to finally pull away.

RE: NIU odds to win MAC
Dear NorthCoast and Rabid Squirrel,
You need to brush up on your facts about Eastern and bowl games. Eastern was tied for second place in the MAC West in 2018 with Toledo and Western with identical 5-3 MAC records and 7-6 records overall.
Eastern has been to four bowl games in the last five years, including the Motor City Bowl in 2019 vs, Pittsburgh.
You have won this years game, but if you think your team is a world beater, dream on.

Dearest Kenneth,

That question was directed towards the holybovine troll but allow me this opportunity to congratulate Eastern on its TWO third-place finishes (thus qualifying for top half of the MAC West) since 1997 when the MAC started playing a Conference Championship game.

Those years, for anyone who is curious, were the aforementioned 2018 season and the 2007 season. Also, allow me to clarify any confusion with your contradictory claim of a second place finish (tie) in 2018. There are these things called tiebreakers, and using these tiebreakers, it turns out that the three-way tie you mentioned gets sorted out as such:

1) Head-to-head record: All three teams went 1-1 against each other.
2) Division record: All three teams went 3-2 in the division.
3) Winning percentage of cross-over opponents: Western with cross-over opponents winning percentage of .583 wins the tiebreaker giving it second place.
4) Remaining teams revert to head-to-head matchup and on the strength of a 28-26 victory over Toledo at Rynearson Stadium, it is Eastern Michigan that secures third-place and that coveted top half distinction.

Again, congratulations on Eastern’s TWO top half West division finishes since 1997.

NIU isn't a worldbeater by any stretch, but they do beat teams that play home games on faded parking lots.
