It's never too early to bet on football, or at least that's what the Golden Nugget would have you believe.
In their annual "Games of the Year" early betting lines, the famous Las Vegas casino has set two lines for games featuring MAC teams. First, they have the Ohio Bobcats as +3.5 dogs to Marshall, who went 12-1 last season but loses play-making QB Rakeem Cato, among others. The line has moved to +4
The other line is rather shocking, as they what has become the MAC West Game of the Year in recent years (NIU vs Toledo) as a 3-point Toledo favorite upon opening. NIU is the 4-time reigning MAC West Champions, but the Rockets return a lot of firepower on offense after having to play the Huskies with their 4th-string QB/WR in Dekalb last year.
One final note, although you can place bets as high as $1,000 on these games, Hustle Belt reminds you to bet responsibly, if at all.
