Fresh off an 84-0 trouncing at Oklahoma State, Savannah State is not exactly inspiring confidence when it comes to those who make gambling predictions.
Steve Davenport's squad is a 70.5-point underdog this Saturday against Florida State, the largest point spread in college football history according to RJ Bell of Pregame.com.
So this is consecutive weeks Savannah State has been a part of the largest spread in college football history. They opened as 67.5 point dogs against OSU, but they closed at 58. Hawaii was favored by 60 points over Northern Colorado in 2007, Bell said.
Also per Bell: It’s interesting to note that Vegas takes even a game like this seriously: At Cantor Sportsbook you can bet up to $5,000 on this game!
It would take quite the sick gambler to put some action on this one either way.
