College football started with 2 matches Saturday and Week 1 is set to kick off. For a lot of people, this is the first time you have made a wager since last football season, steering clear of baseball along with its uncertainty. I took a look at some of the lines for Week 1 which could be worthwhile wagering on??Saturday morning, before movements that constantly come.
The total for Georgia Tech’s visit was 59. The entire world has only moved up 1 stage. Both of these colleges locked horns in Week 4 final year and performed to a total of 70. At that point in the year, the Tigers were entrenched in a quarterback conflict between Kelly Bryant and Trevor Lawrence.
Running back Travis Etienne returns this year while Lawrence pitched four touchdowns and 176 yards and he had 122 yards versus Georgia Tech last year. I believe there could be some small pains on the defensive side of the ball to the Tigers, having to replace the lineup from one year ago.
This line could close two??or three??points greater closer to the sport and that I expect the Tigers to score at least 50 by themselves,??therefore OVER 60 is still a line that is good.
Tulsa visits Michigan State at Week 1 and the Spartans opened as a 21.5-point favored with the complete coming in at 46.5 points. The total??has moved up 1 point to 47.5, which I think is definitely going in the incorrect direction. Last season, Tulsa and Michigan State ranked 103rd and 126th points per game from 130 groups.
Grantedthe Spartans coped with a great deal of accidents that could explain some of their lack of offense, but maybe perhaps not much has been addressed in the offseason. Rather,??the coaching staff was shuffled in hopes that will ignite matters into different roles, but I’m not convinced it will. On the defensive side of the globe, Sparty had the defense and returns eight starters who??should cause issues once again.
The line may stay put but with those teams moving UNDER a joint 16 times in??their last 19 matches, the lineup will likely come down so jump on it until that happens.
The line has stood??pat in this competition since it started using all the No. 21 Iowa State Cyclones being an 18.5-point preferred and the complete opening at 41.5 points. I’m very surprised to see behind the Cyclones going from the Panthers against an FCS side this line not move with all of the hype. Iowa State completed 2018 by??winning seven of the last nine matches, falling only to Washington State from the Valero Alamo Bowl and also to Texas.
Quarterback Brock Purdy need to have a step forward after his true freshman season with an experienced offensive line in front of him along with two senior wide receivers and a running. Look for this group to beat up on Northern Iowa to kick the season. When we get nearer to the sport, this line will shut over -20.
Yet more, Alabama enters a season setting??its sights??on a national championship with a smothering defense and a high-octane offense. The opening total with this match has been 60.5 but has dropped three points.?? I believe that is the incorrect direction and it’ll move back to the opening line. Last year, the Crimson Tide had eight games where they published more or 50 points, while shutting out the way, both times in November.
Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa returns for his junior season and is connected by arguably the best wide receiver in college football in Jerry Jeudy. Duke will have a brand fresh look after dropping quarterback Daniel Jones to the NFL draft therefore the crime may??scuffle somewhat in the early going, however Alabama can hit on the OVER 57.5 points??.
The following game, very similar to??the Northern Iowa/Iowa State contest, where the line and total haven’t shifted since the open since Louisiana Tech and Texas’ total has remained steady in 55 points. The Longhorns averaged 31.1 points per game last season, ranking 45th in college soccer, and is going to have a similar look offensively in 2019 with quarterback Sam Ehlinger and operating back Keaontay Ingram coming along with Collin Johnson, their No. 2??receiver last year.
The biggest question mark for Texas is a new-look defense that is supposed to possess a freshman and four sophomores holding down in the season because they adapt to college ball’s rate. Very similar to Texas, Louisiana Tech running Jaqwis Dancy and has been returning a lot of its crime, most especially quarterback J’mar Smith.
I believe the two squads will locate their opportunities offensively although the guards will need some time to correct and??come together. I??believe the total should rise.
