College Football Odds: Can Arch Manning Satisfy Family Betting Legacy?

Arch Manning’s College Courtship is one of the most well-documented for a high school quarterback. And the bettors know that the stakes are high based on the legacy of the uncles.

Arch is the son of Cooper Manning, Peyton and Eli’s older brother, and is the namesake of his grandfather Archie. Frankly, there is probably no family more synonymous with football than Manning. So it’s fitting that a player whose legacy carries so much weight is seriously considering programs that could complement his pedigree.

This means that large dogs like it Georgia, Alabama And Texas lead the pack of schools this blood champion quarterback can engage in.

Smaller Manning QB is on a summer tour hot enough to make Jack Harlow jealous. He spent the first weekend of June visiting the Dawgs in Classic City, the second weekend with Saban and the Tide, and will spend the third weekend of the month testing Texas and the Longhorn landscape.

Jack Harlow may own Churchill Downs, but when you are the number 1 rookie in your class and your last name is Manning, you are the future of college football.

While he won’t make a competitive college football spurt until late 2023, gamblers are bracing for that. I could to be with Arch. As such, we took a dive into Peyton and Eil’s college football records from a gambling perspective to get a look at what we might expect from the next generation.

Before Manningcast and at the four rings of the Super Bowl, Peyton and Eli were QBs of the college where Tennessee And Ole Miss, respectively. Two brothers just looking to get their teams into the Saturday win column in the SEC.

Peyton “Omaha” Manning was perched on Rocky Top when it came to winning streak (SU). According to FOX Sports Research, during the time he started for the Volunteers, Peyton went 39-6 SU. That’s an 86.6% win record as a college starter.

When the Vols were favorites, Peyton was 38-3 SU. Away as a starter, the middle brother went 12-3 SU, and as a home star, 22-2 SU. If Arch posts as many streak in college as Uncle Peyton, gamblers may want to set aside some money to throw at the boy.

But what about little brother Eli? Well, at 21-16, his overall record as a starter at Ole Miss pales in comparison. However, Uncle Eli has an advantage over Peyton when it comes to his record against the spread (ATS).

Manning’s younger brother went 21-16 ATS while he was starter at Ole Miss. This is a 56.7 percent coverage rate. For comparison, Peyton’s ATS record was around 48.9%. And if we are keeping the score, this is also a win for the little brothers around the world.

From underdog and starter to Ole Miss, Eli went 9-5 ATS. As a home starter, he was 12-8 ATS. If Arch ends up wearing Mississippi cardinal red and navy blue, people who have bet on Uncle Eli covering the spread in the past are hoping that his nephew will follow his shoes.

Peyton and Eil probably wouldn’t have won all of those wins if Papa Archie hadn’t laid the groundwork during his days as a college football signalman at Ole Miss.

Like the father, like the children, right?

According to FOX Sports Research, Archie was voted SEC Player of the Year in 1969 and finished fourth in Heisman’s vote that same year. In 1970, Patriarch Manning came third in the Heisman vote.

Once grandson Arch has a stellar couple of seasons behind him, bettors could budget a few dollars for the QB to hoist the Heisman in New York. And if the young quarterback chooses UGA, Bama, Florida or Ole Miss, gamblers may want to jump into action early and lead Arch to win SEC Player of the Year like his grandfather did many decades ago.

Foreshadowing that the grandson is like the grandfather? A player can only dream.

Regardless of where Arch Manning ends up playing college football, he has some incredibly big shoes to fill. But if he’s up to the occasion and emulates his uncles’ success, Manning’s new quarterback could very well end up being a punters delight.
