NCAA Football Betting: Baylor Bears vs. Connecticut Huskies

The undefeated Connecticut Huskies (3-0 SU, 1-1 ATS) will play host to the surprising Baylor Bears (2-1 SU, 1-1 ATS) this Friday night.

This NCAA football betting clash will be nationally televised on ESPN2 at 8:00 PM. The Bears are coming off a very impressive 45-17 win last Friday night against Washington State in which they easily covered the football betting line as seven-point home favorites.

Meanwhile, the Huskies enter the game undefeated and are coming off of a big win themselves, a 45-10 thumping of Virginia at home. The Bears are trying to snap a 14 year bowl drought this year and have gotten off to a decent start after their season opening loss to Wake Forest.

The Bears were shockingly efficient on offense last week, torching the Cougars for 555 total yards and 426 yards rushing on 42 carries. Freshman QB Robert Griffin was deadly on the ground rushing for a mind-boggling 217 yards on only 11 carries for two touchdowns.

College football betting fans should know that the Bears have played both games against FBS opponents over the ‘total’ this season, according to the closing NCAA lines. In fact, all three Bears games so far this season have produced at least 54 total points. Tyler Lorenzen has been very good for the Huskies thus far this season.

Last week against the Cavaliers, he completed 86.7% of his passes and produced 176 total yards for his team in the win. The star of last week’s game though was RB Donald Brown who rushed for 206 yards on 20 carries and waltzed into the end zone three times against the Cavaliers porous defense.

Connecticut’s stop unit wasn’t slouches either, only allowing 219 yards and forcing two turnovers in the victory. With last week’s win, the Huskies are now 4-1 ATS against the final NCAA gambling line for NCAA football betting followers as home favorites since the start of 2007.

Currently, the NCAA odds show the Huskies as 14-point home favorites in this game with a ‘total’ of 46 points. Sports fans, whether you are a new gambler or are a veteran of the game, the only place to bet on college football for the remainder of the 2008 season is Sportsbook.
