College football betting handicappers may be thinking strong about the “over” but the over/under college football odds number is around 73. Head coach Bill Cubit’s Western Michigan Broncos are one of the most interesting and exciting teams in college football betting.
The Broncos are also a potentially dangerous team against the college football odds. If you doubt that just ask the Fighting Illini of Illinois who suffered one of the biggest upset losses of the 2008 college football betting season to Western Michigan by a score of 17-23 as 7.5 point chalks.
While the Broncos were just 6-6 overall against the college football odds they finished well going 4-3 against the college football betting number in their final 7 games. Western Michigan offers solid intangibles to the Texas Bowl odds board as they were 9-3 straight up and have the nation’s 25th overall ranked offense.
Tim Hiller is one of the most impressive quarterbacks in college football betting as he brings Western Michigan considerable Texas Bowl odds appeal. Hiller completed 67% of his passes, had a sparkling 34/8 touchdown/interception ratio, and had an eye-popping quarterback rating of 148.4.
Cubit’s highly sophisticated offense is not without a ground attack as Brandon West ran for 970 yards, a 5.1 average per carry, and 8 TD’s to make Western Michigan a college football betting threat from anywhere on the field.
Texas betting fans will keep an eye out for the Broncos’ leading receiver, Jamarko Simmons, who caught 98 passes for 1184 yards and 7 TD’s. Rice head coach David Bailiff rivals Cubit for offensive expertise and excellence. The Owls have the 10th ranked offense nationally in college football betting.
Quarterback Chase Clement is the big Texas betting draw from Rice. Clement had an overall QB rating of 165.4 and a sensational 41/7 touchdown/interception ratio. Clement completed 66% of his passes. College football betting fans have two top receivers to look over for Rice.
Jarett Dillard caught 79 passes for 1224 yards and 19 TD’s while James Casey had a whopping 104 catches for 1217 yards and 12 TD’s. Rice was a strong 5-1 ATS as a college football betting chalk and had an over/under college football betting mark of 9-3 over the total.
