On Saturday, college football bettors turn their attention to the Sunshine State, when the South Florida Bulls (1-0) head up I-4 to take on the Central Florida Knights (1-0). Kickoff from Brighthouse Stadium is set for 7:00 PM. The Knights will be out to avenge their embarrassing 64-12 loss in Tampa Bay last season.
USF is 3-0 both SU and ATS in this series’ history. There wasn’t much excitement around USF’s 56-7 victory over Tennessee-Martin in the first week of the college football betting season. Though there was no NCAA betting line on the game, there was no doubt that the Bulls were a far superior squad to the Skyhawks.
USF took an early 28-0 lead and took their foot off the gas in the second half. Last year against UCF, QB Matt Grothe accounted for 312 yards of offense and four scores for the Bulls. UCF wasn’t nearly as impressive in their season-opener.
Though their defense played well in their 17-0 shutout of the South Carolina State Bulldogs, the offense struggled, as QB Mike Greco only completed 9/16 passes for 90 yards in his first career start.
The Knights might’ve won Conference USA last year, but they were awful in their final three non-conference games of the year, including shocking their football betting fans when they lost to USF by 52 points when the college football odds only had them +10.
Oddsmakers originally set USF as 12.5-point road favorites in this Sunshine State showdown, but NCAA football betting followers have pushed the line up to 14; the ‘total’ currently sits at 51.
Considering putting the ‘under’ on your NCAA betting card this weekend, as UCF has played seven of their L/8 lined games ‘under’ the ‘total’, which doesn’t include last week’s game that only reached 17 combined points.
