Stanford had fits playing up to Oregon in Week 10, dropping a home game and ruining a National Championship hope in which they were favorites.

Is sports betting frowned upon?

To me, it isn’t and within recent years, it’s drawing a bigger crowd and adding more excitement to the sports industry.

Try flipping through the sports section of a newspaper without seeing a game line. It’s just assumed now for a sports writer to include it on a game preview.

I heard a stat last week that blew me away. Only one percent of sportsbook aficionados win. Meaning 99 percent of winnings go to the bookie.

Winning over 50 percent of your picks is success. It’s not as easy as it looks.

The Oregon Ducks shocked the books last week, dominating every fashion of their game against Stanford, winning 53-30 as a three-point underdog.

November 5 saw LSU enter Bryant-Denny Stadium as an underdog and leave three-point winners as a three-point underdog.

Which begs the question who this week's underdog pick is. Nebraska? Penn State? Kansas State?
