College football betting enthusiasts will compare the collapse of Minnesota’s season to the strong finish of the Jayhawks against the college football odds. Tim Brewster’s Minnesota Golden Gophers had a phenomenal start to the 2008 college football betting season and were even considered long shot Rose Bowl contenders against the college football odds but “Goldie” went into a full crash down the college football betting stretch, finishing 0-4 straight up and 1-3 against the college football odds.
Minnesota’s strong start may have had a lot to do with facing weak college football betting opponents as they lost steam in conference play. A close look at the Gophers reveals that they don’t have a lot to enhance their Insight Bowl odds as the offense ranked 91st and the defense ranked 75th on the national college football betting stat charts.
One strong suit for Minnesota against the Insight Bowl odds was that they went 5-0 ATS on the road in 2008. The Kansas Jayhawks had an up and down college football betting season as well but they finished with strong Insight Bowl betting momentum as they upset hated arch rival Missouri 40-37 as 16 point dogs.
Kansas has a good offense that is their college football betting strength. Quarterback Todd Reesing is an Insight Bowl betting asset with a 145.8 rating, 3575 yards passing, and a 28/12 TD/INT ratio. Another college football betting plus is Kerry Meier, who caught 87 passes to lead KU while also serving as Reesing’s backup.
Dezmon Briscoe was a solid college football betting breakaway threat with 15.5 yards per catch average and 12 TD’s. Kansas was 3-2 against the spread as a college football betting favorite this year.
While their defense is a weakness, coach Mark Mangino should be given a lot of credit for getting KU back on the college football map and consistently into the post season.
