This summer, I had my friends sign up to use the betJACK app to get into the swing of sports betting. Some of them have done a great job with their tokens, and others… well, they’ve struggled. I’m here to grade their football future bets and see how smart each wager has been, and if they have any chance of cashing out! Here are some of those futures.

Kent State Golden Flashes To Win College Football Title (+100000)

Grade: F-

Thank you betJACK for the daily free tokens, because this was a quick donation. Maybe there was a little bias in a Kent State student betting on the Golden Flashes. This was the worst bet we’ve got on this list.

Kansas Jayhawks: O2.5 Wins (-130)

Grade: A+

First, I showed you the worst bet of the day, and now I’ve got the best bet of the season. Kansas was seriously undervalued by odds makers and hit their team total wins in their first three games. This pick had zero sweat and the Jayhawks have already more than doubled their team total this College Football season. Sharp behavior.

Stetson Bennett To Win The Heisman (+8000)

Grade: C+

This one probably won’t be a winner, but it wasn’t a bad pick with its current value. Bennett might even find himself as a Heisman finalist. With an SEC Championship game to boost his odds, it’s not out of the realm of possibility for him to pull the rug out from under the current favorites. Bennett’s currently sitting at (+1450), so if you think he can still win it, this is a great value pick. 

Jaxson Smith-Njigba To Win The Heisman (+2800)

Grade: F

I hate to give this one an F, but JSN hardly saw the field in 2022. He has 5 catches in 3 games this year, but that’s because he’s been hurt. Before the season, the value from this pick was pretty weak anyways, and the media would hate to see a receiver win the award two years in a row. 

Justin Jefferson To Lead NFL In Receiving Yards (+1125)

Grade: A-

The NFL’s receiving champion has come down to three players. Tyreek Hill is currently in first but on a bye week, and Steffon Diggs is down in third, but he plays the Browns' terrible defense this week, so he could make up some ground. Jefferson and the Vikings have another big game this week against the Cowboys, so he could see a heavy volume of targets once again. Jefferson might find himself in first place after this week, but will Kirk Cousins be able to continue his consistency this year, and find ways to get the ball to Jefferson? I believe he will, and there's a very decent chance of this bet cashing out.
