After another great week of the college football betting season, we are back for Week 4, as we look at the top teams, players, and trends of note for the this week on NCAA football schedule.
It’s not often that we talk about teams from the Sun Belt Conference, but we have to tip our hats to these guys. The conference has already has covers against the LSU Tigers (North Texas), Oregon Ducks (Arkansas State), Alabama Crimson Tide (Western Kentucky), NC State Wolfpack (South Alabama), Mississippi State Bulldogs (Troy Trojans),
They aren’t many rivalries as bitter as the BYU vs. Utah rivalry in college football. These two teams definitely have respect for each other, but they also love nothing more than beating each other. Both teams have good young coaches and they appear to be on the rise. Last year, Utah thumped BYU 54-10 as a four-point road underdog. It was a result that very few people saw coming. BYU looks for some serious revenge this Saturday night in Salt Lake City.
The Texas Longhorns are bouncing back from their brutal season a couple years ago. Texas went 8-5 last year, and the Longhorns have been impressive in consecutive wins to start the 2012 season. Mississippi has a new coach in Hugh Freeze. The Rebels have started the season 2-0, but it has been against subpar competition. This is the team’s first real test of the 2012 season.
Texas has primarily gone with David Ash as their quarterback this year. Case McCoy has seen limited action as well, but it seems the coaches are most comfortable with Ash under center.
Points are expected to hit the board in bunches this week on the NCAA football odds, where the Missouri Tigers duke it out with the Arizona State Sun Devils at Faurot Field on Saturday night.
The Sun Devils have gotten off to a 2-0 start to their season, but they really haven’t taken on all that much in the way of competition to date. This is going to be their toughest game of the year to date, as it is the first road game and the first game against a team that is going to likely be in a bowl this year.
Six digits worth of fans will be screaming Rocky Top at the tops of their lungs on Saturday night for college football betting action, as the Tennessee Volunteers take on their arch rivals, the Florida Gators.
Head Coach Will Muschamp is clearly going to be in for a challenge this week, and he knows that these are the types of games that he has to win if he wants to keep his job intact.
One of the most electrifying players in the nation will be back on display on Saturday afternoon at the Horseshoe for NCAA football betting fans, as the Ohio State Buckeyes face off with the Cal Golden Bears.
This is the last chance that Head Coach Jeff Tedford has to impressive outside of conference play, and in the likelihood that this one is lost and five games aren’t won in the Pac-12 schedule this year, odds have it, Tedford is out the door.
After another great week of the college football betting season, we are back for Week 3, as we look at the top teams, players, and trends of note for the this week on NCAA football schedule.
There aren’t all that many teams that QB Matt Barkley hasn’t beaten in his collegiate career that he has played. In fact, the only one that he has taken on that he has zero career wins against is the Stanford Cardinal, whom he and his USC Trojans get a chance to battle this week.
When you bet on NCAA Football, you should know all about the numbers. Numbers for stats, numbers for trends, numbers for betting lines, numbers for ‘totals’ – You should know it all. Here at Bang the Book, we are set to talk about the NCAA football betting lines for Week 3. Here are the most important numbers that you need to remember for the week!
0: The number of wins that the Colorado Buffaloes and Colorado State Rams had in Week 2. That surely doesn’t seem like all that much of a big deal, as these two teams have lost on the same week time and time again. However, this is notable because they both lost to FCS schools. Yikes.
What could be a relatively ugly game kicks off on Friday night for NCAA football betting aficionados, as the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels play host to the Washington State Cougars.
The Cougs just haven’t gotten off to a good start to their season as of yet. They were beaten and beaten badly by the BYU Cougars on the first day of the season, and they turned around the next week and were nearly had by the FCS’ Eastern Washington Eagles.
The 2012 Big East season kicks off for college football betting fans on Thursday night from the Sunshine State, where the South Florida Bulls take on the Rutgers Scarlet Knights.
The Scarlet Knights really haven’t showed all that much yet, because they haven’t played all that much of a schedule. They weren’t exactly the most dominating team in the world against either the Tulane Green Wave or the Howard Bison, and neither one of those foes are exactly the cream of the crop on the team’s schedule.
