Kick-off is scheduled for 7:00 ET. The Panthers return 18 starters from last year’s club that got beaten into the ground on a weekly basis. Even though they only managed one SU victory, FIU treated CFB bettors decently by posting a 5-7 ATS record against the closing college football odds.
Sure, it’s not a winning mark, but they were at least competitive according to the closing NCAA lines. In their four non-conference games last season, FIU went 0-4 SU, but they managed a 2-2 ATS mark with covers as 24-point underdogs at home against Maryland, and as 32-point road pups at Miami. They did however get their doors blown off at both Penn State and Kansas.
The Jayhawks were college football betting gold last season as they went on to cover 11 of their 12 games against the closing pointspread. They were awfully impressive in non-conference play where they went a perfect 4-0 SU and ATS outscoring their four opponents by a combined 214-23.
The NCAA betting public was wary of backing them once Big 12 play began thinking they weren’t as good as their non-conference work predicted, but that theory all came to a crashing halt when they managed to cover the 3.5-point spread in Boulder in a prime time ESPN telecast that saw them upend the Buffaloes by a 19-14 final count.
Kansas boasted the second-highest scoring offense in the FBS last season (42.8 points per game), and junior QB Todd Reesing is back to navigate the high-powered attack once again this year. Reesing threw for more touchdowns (33) and yards (3,486) than any passer in school history, and was only intercepted seven times.
The Jayhawks currently sit as gargantuan 36-point home favorites in tonight’s football betting affair, with the ‘total’ standing pat at 57.5.
