College Football Upsets on the Horizon
The 2022 college football season is well underway and the TV ratings have reflected that the fans are eating it up. The best part of college football is when a heavy underdog wins straight up. It’s even better when it happens at the underdogs home field.
There are a few games this weekend where a possible major upset can happen. For instance, the 2-2 Purdue Boilermakers are visiting the 4-0 Minnesota Golden Gophers. The line has Minneosta favored by 12 points. But in the Big Ten conference anything can happen. Why can’t this Purdue team go to Minnesota and win? They absolutely can.
Another matchup to look for the big upset is Michigan State at Maryland. Maryland is favored by 9 points at most online sportsbooks. If you look at the history of this matchup, Maryland is just 1-6 when facing the Spartans. And if you look at the spread Maryland is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games at home.
Finally, let’s look at the big dog on the board. Alabama visits Arkansas. The Razorbacks are at home and are 17 point underdogs. Can you imagine how crazy that place will go if they are able to beat Alabama? It should be noted that Arkansas is 5-1 in their last 6 games at home. There is a real shot at the biggest upset of the season thus far happening this weekend.
