Kick-off is scheduled for 7:00 ET. LA Tech is coming off a 22-14 SU upset of Mississippi State on Saturday as seven-point underdogs according to the closing NCAA odds. The victory was its first over a BCS conference squad since a 20-19 victory over Michigan State way back on September 13th of 2003, and first against an SEC team since an upset of No. 18 Alabama at Tuscaloosa back in ‘99.
“You can’t get too excited, even though we’re going to celebrate this win,” Coach Derek Dooley told the school’s official Web site. “I always preach consistency. One game doesn’t make a team. Good programs go week to week”. College football betting saw them close as seven-point home pups with the ‘total’ set at 44 combined points.
The Bulldogs took advantage of three Mississippi State turnovers in the third quarter to pick up the victory, but this club still needs to shore some things up if they expect to go into Lawrence and pull off the shocker.
The Jayhawks were college football betting gold in 2007, which caused the CFB betting public to back them regardless of how high the spread climbed last week. The line eventually closed at (-36) per NCAA lines, and the 40-10 victory was a bittersweet one for Jayhawk bettors regardless of their eighth straight victory within Memorial Stadium.
“We got a win, which is the most important thing, but I think we have room for improvement”, Kansas coach Mark Mangino said. “In the first game you find out a little bit about your team, who’s in the right spots and where we have to tweak things”.
QB Todd Reesing wasn’t sharp in his season debut after throwing for more touchdowns (33) and yards (3,486) than any passer in school history. The running game also faltered churning out just 66 total yards after averaging close to 100 per game last year but the defense was stellar limiting the Golden Panthers to just 139 yards of total offense.
The Jayhawks currently sit as 20.5-point home favorites in tonight’s football betting affair, with the ‘total’ standing pat at 52. Open an account at Sports-gambling Sportsbook who offers all NCAA betting odds be it spread, total, or moneyline.
