  • Purdue entered the game favored by 15, and finished at -645 on the moneyline.
  • The Eastern Michigan moneyline paid out +495.
  • Public bettors (66%) were heavy on Purdue in this one.

The Purdue Boilermakers closed at -645 on the moneyline Saturday morning for their matchup vs. the Eastern Michigan Eagles.

Most deemed the Boilermakers on the moneyline a sure winner, but as the game went on, the Eagles kept, as Teddy KGB famously said in Rounders, “hanging around, hanging around.”

Eastern Michigan went on a 15-play drive with less than five minutes to go, which included a conversion on 4th-and-15 at the Eastern Michigan 47-yard line.

The Eagles went on to hit a 24-yard field-goal as time expired, and the rest was history.

The 34% of bettors on Eastern Michigan are, of course, dancing right now. The loss for Purdue ranks as the second-largest so far this season for a moneyline bet behind Hawaii’s upset over Colorado State on Aug. 25.

Just another brutal upset in the world of college football.
