A very interesting bet was placed at WynnBET’s online sportsbook on Wednesday, Aug. 10 ahead of the 2022-23 college football season.
One player in Tennessee placed a $4,000 bet on Vanderbilt’s football team to record over two wins. The over was priced at -150, meaning the player would profit $2,666.67 if the Commodores are able to record at least three victories.
Vanderbilt has won a total of two games over the last two years, with both victories coming during a 2-10 campaign in Year 1 of the Clark Lea era last season. The Commodores have not won more than three games since 2019, when the team went 3-9 on the year.

Are There Three Wins on This Schedule?
The player must see at least two wins on Vanderbilt’s schedule, ensuring that this will be graded as a push at worst.
Vanderbilt opens the year with a matchup against Hawaii during Week 0 on Aug. 27. The Commodores are currently favored by seven points, with a moneyline price of -255 to win outright.
One week later, Vanderbilt will host Elon and could be favored by double-digits in that game. That said, the Commodores will likely be more than a touchdown underdog against every other team on their schedule.
Given the timeline of the bet, this player must believe Wake Forest could be susceptible to an upset by Vanderbilt. The school announced yesterday that starting quarterback Sam Hartman will be out for “an extended period of time” because of a non-football-related issue. Hartman, who recorded 50 touchdowns last season, led the Demon Deacons to an Atlantic Division title.
This could prove to be a savvy way of betting the Hartman news by mid-September. Vanderbilt’s over is currently priced at -180 at WynnBET.
