NCAA Football Betting - Idaho Vandals vs. AZ Wildcats

The first weekend of 2008 college football betting is here with this non-conference match-up between the Idaho Vandals the Arizona Wildcats.

Kickoff from Tucson is set for Saturday night at 10:00 PM. The only other time Idaho and Arizona have faced off was back in 2001. The Wildcats won the game 36-29, but NCAA football betting fans with the Vandals on their ticket laughed last, as they covered the 19.5-point spread with ease.

The Vandals were one of the worst teams in all of college football after going just 1-11 last season, with their only win coming against FCS Cal-Poly SLO. NCAA football betting fans who backed Idaho didn’t fare any better, as the Vandals just managed a lackluster 3-8 record against the football betting line, and that was after starting the year 2-0 ATS.

They are just 7-14 ATS over the past two seasons, but did go 2-1 ATS in their non-WAC games last year. Wildcats head coach Mike Stoops has a lot of pressure on him to bring Arizona to a bowl game after a 5-7 season last year. Arizona went 6-5 ATS last year, which at least provided a moderate level of success for their bettors.

The last time the Wildcats faced off with a WAC team was back in 2003. On that day, the NCAA football odds featured Arizona as 21.5-point favorites over Texas-El Paso, who has since moved on to Conference USA. The Wildcats coasted to a 42-7 victory, providing easy cash for football betting followers that backed Arizona.

NCAA football odds makers have tabbed the Wildcats as 27-point favorites in this non-conference showdown with the ‘total’ now sitting at a hefty 63. Consider the ‘under’ in this match-up, as Arizona is 8-3 towards the ‘under’ in their L/11 home games, while the Vandals played three out of their final four games of the ’07 season ‘under’ the ‘total’.
