College Football Gambling: Oregon State is your first dumpster fire team of 2017

09.12.2017     06:53 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Generally, college football dumpster fires aren't spotted until Week 5 or 6-ish. That allows for just enough time for a team to suffer a few bad losses, the coach to get chippy with the media for grilling him about the situation, a failed rally-the-troops game, a bye week, and another bad loss. But while not an inferno, flames have been spotted in Corvallis. Oregon State was justifiably pegged by a lot of bettors to be much improved in Gary Andersen's third season. In 2016, the Beavers were outgained by only 0.20 yards per play in PAC-12 play and covered nine of 12 games. But after getting waxed by Colorado State in their opener and limping past FCS Portland State in Week 2, red flags started to appear. Last week, the Beavers were again outplayed from start to finish in a 48-14 loss to Minnesota. Needless to say, Andersen is pissed. And after fairly strong support from the markets (+1 to -2.5), bettors have all but quit on this team with Washington State hammered up from -15.5 to -21.5 for this week's PAC-12 opener in Pullman.

“I don’t know,” Andersen said. “We had no offense in the third quarter. We turned it over, and made it a short field for our defense. We couldn’t throw it, we couldn’t run it, and the offensive coaches will have to answer those questions.”

“It’s a pretty tough deal for the fans, I would imagine,” Andersen said. “This is absolutely not what I expected in anyway, shape, or form. It’s on me. It’s not on those kids. I’m the one who hired the coaches, so it’s all on me. We will keep battling, and fighting.”
