See spot. See spot bet: This week’s best spot bet opportunities
By Ben Burns
Spot bets are classic handicapping practices that have proven profitable no matter what sport you’re betting. Whether it’s a team looking past this week’s opponent, one coming off a hard-fought victory, or a rough patch of schedule, bettors can find value picking their spots. Ben Burns points out his favorites:
Lost in the big-name upsets in Week 1 of the college football schedule was Florida International’s 15-14 stunner over state rival Central Florida as a two-touchdown road underdog Thursday. The Golden Panthers got a blocked field goal from Treyvon Williams to hold off the Knights with 30 seconds remaining in the game, picking up a win in their season opener for the first time in four years.
That upset has FIU on letdown watch in Week 2, once again playing on the road but having to hit the highway for a long trek to Bloomington to face the Indiana Hoosiers. Oddsmakers opened the Golden Panthers as 7.5-point underdogs, playing a Hoosiers program that got a big scare from FCS Southern Illinois in Week 1. Indiana is already vowing to improve and FIU may be punching bag for their Big Ten opponents this Saturday.
