Projected Vegas Win Totals for EVERY Underdog!

Las Vegas win totals for every freaking Group of Five program plus a couple of Independents. You're welcome.

Forget amateurs like AP Top 25, the USA TODAY Coaches Poll, the College Playoff Selection Committee, Phil Steele, and ESPN FPI. When it comes to projecting college football winners, nobody beats the number-crunchers and leg-breakers in Sin City. Las Vegas released its college football win totals for every FBS program, and I sacrificed time with my family to extrapolate the Underdogs from those under programs you probably read about on ESPN.
