The impact of Deion Sanders is making waves in Colorado, a trend that has been in motion since his move was announced late last year. This momentum has now translated into a significant victory on the football field, making the Buffaloes the most bet-on football team leading up to this weekend’s games.
As reported by BetMGM (via ESPN), the Colorado-Nebraska game has attracted more wagers than any remaining NFL game in Week 1. Furthermore, an impressive 90 percent of bettors have placed their confidence in the Buffaloes to win this Saturday’s clash against the Cornhuskers, with more money being wagered on Colorado minus the points against the visitors than on any of the NFL teams yet to play.
The only game that received more bets than the Colorado-Nebraska matchup was the NFL season opener between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Detroit Lions, which took place on Thursday.
As of Friday, Colorado held a 2.5-point advantage over Nebraska, a significant shift from the preseason when the Cornhuskers were favored by 9 points against Deion’s team.
This transformation follows the Buffaloes’ impressive takedown of the Horned Frogs last weekend, instilling newfound belief in their capabilities.
Joey Feazel, the lead college football trader for Caesars Sportsbook, shared his observations, stating, “Every time I have glanced at the college football ticker since Saturday, I have seen a line of Colorado bets. The action has been crazy.”
Deion has always had a keen eye for financial opportunities.
