    When was the last time 2 teams began the season against each other and the 26 pt underdog was a 9 game winner the season before?

    The next closest was Bowling Green (8 wins) at Tennessee last year.

    It would have to be a CUSA, MAC, or Sun Belt team playing at a P5 program that was expected to be good that year.

    Wow, major disrespect to our guys since Arkansas isn't anywhere near a national ranking.

    Nah ... the oddsmakers' aim isn't to predict the outcome. It's to maximize wagers on either side of the line.

    They're just playing to the ignorance of their clientele. It's not a slight on their part.
