The online gambling site Bovada has released over/under lines for each major-college football team’s regular-season 2015 win total, and Washington’s over/under is set at four wins.
There’s a bit of a caveat there. These aren’t predictions, necessarily. They’re simply betting lines constructed to encourage as much action as possible on both sides. And in UW’s case, the line is a little different than most other teams, in that Bovada has set odds that clearly favor the “over.” The money line on the “over” for UW is -350 (meaning a person would have to bet $350 just to win $100), while the money line on the “under” is +225 (meaning a successful $100 bet would yield a $225 profit). So, Bovada has essentially installed the “over” as a heavy favorite, in UW’s case. No other Pac-12 team’s over/under odds differ as drastically, making it a bit of a strange line.
