Following the injury tracker has never been more important than it is this season especially with COVID-19. Some coaches spread the news early in the week who will and will not be playing, and some will say nothing, forcing fans and bettors to wait till game time to find out. Especially with the rise in sports betting, it would be nice if injury reports in college were more like the NFL’s injury reports but that’s a topic for another day.
Before you decide to place any bets this weekend, make sure you’re doing one final scan of the injury report prior to locking in your bets. We’ve seen it happen a few times already this season where beat writers at the game notice a lack of depth out on the field during warmups and scrambled to get out the information on who is out there and who is not.
Here’s a compilation of what we could find scouring through Don Best’s college football injury report. Give it a quick run through as you decide to place your Saturday wagers.
