- Five top 25 teams lost last week: Notre Dame, Utah, Michigan, UCF and Texas A&M.
- Using Bet Labs, we detail how bettors should approach ranked teams following losses.
What do No. 10 Notre Dame, No. 19 Utah, No. 20 Michigan, No. 22 UCF and No. 23 Texas A&M have in common? Each of these top 25 teams lost in Week 4.
The Irish, Wolverines and Aggies came up short against top 25 opponents, while the Utes and Knights fell to unranked teams. Despite faltering, each team is still drawing a majority of spread tickets on Saturday.
Ranked teams tend to be overrated by recreational gamblers, so that public support isn’t too surprising.
But are these ranked teams poised to rebound? Or should bettors steer clear?
