OK, skeptics, about my ability to put out an accurate Bison betting line: Let me throw out two examples.
Aug. 31, Game Day graphic in The Forum. Some bald sportswriter gemoke picks NDSU 55, Concordia-St. Paul 7. Actual score: NDSU 66, Concordia-St. Paul 7.
Sept. 16, Game Day graphic in The Forum. That same gemoke picks NDSU 27, Northeastern 12. Actual score: NDSU 23, Northeastern 10.
I put the Bison as a minus 14 with the advice of not covering the spread. So Vegas puts the Bison as a 3.5 favorite? If that holds, I will recant en masse after the game.
