Week 4 of the college football season has given us plenty to get excited about.
Among the primetime games scheduled for Saturday, a number of conference matchups should have the nation’s intrigue. No. 3 Ohio State vs. Wisconsin, Kansas State vs. No. 6 Oklahoma and No. 23 Texas A&M vs. No. 10 Arkansas may be the highlights, but they aren’t the main attraction.
Not for bettors, at least, and not when Iowa and Rutgers are on FS1 at 7 p.m. ET live from New Jersey.
That’s right, two of the worst offenses in the country has already attracted a ton of action. Of the 6000 (and counting) bets tracked by Action Network on Iowa-Rutgers, 88 percent of bets placed on the point total have Under 34.5 along with 85 percent of the money. Another 68 percent of bets on the spread have Rutgers (+7.5) with 63 percent of the money.
Meanwhile, Iowa is scoring just 13.7 points per game and has a team total points line of 20.5 at Tipico Sportsbook.
This is Puntmageddon on national television and we cannot wait. The Hawkeyes have punted 23 times in three games this season. Rutgers has punted 12 times over the same span.
It’s enough to make you wonder: just how many punts will take place in Piscataway this weekend? We checked with oddsmakers at Tipico to find out where the punt total line would be set. While not an official offering, Tipico told BetFTW the line is set at 9.5 combined punts with the over as a slight favorite at -120.
Big Ten football!
Let’s check out some other trends around the sport as Week 4 kicks off.
