College football gambling handicappers continue to be perplexed by the Colorado Buffaloes and their inconsistency against the NCAA football odds. Last Sunday in the Rocky Mountain Showdown against Colorado State the Buffs again came up short for college football gambling fans as they were upset at home by the Rams 17-23 as 12.5-point chalks on the NCAA football odds board.
Colorado was clearly outplayed in all facets of the game as they proved to be the ultimate college football gambling overlay. Colorado State outgained Colorado 377-251 to make it appear as if the wrong team was the college football gambling favorite.
Head coach Dan Hawkins begins his 4th season at the helm for CU against the NCAA football odds and has a career record of just 13-24 straight up and just one minor bowl appearance from the 2007 season.
Hawkins is catching heat for the slow college football gambling rebuilding job and he faces increasingly precarious odds as his team returned only 4 starters to an already suspect defense. The offense returns 9 starters including his son, junior quarterback Cody Hawkins.
Hawkins was a so/so 24-41 for 222 yards with 1 touchdown and 1 interception in the opener. The Buffs were touted throughout college football gambling as having a strong ground attack but ran for a putrid 29 yards on 21 carries in their college football gambling opener.
Stupid and costly penalties, long a Colorado trademark in college football gambling, again came to the fore against Colorado State and were a significant factor in the Buffs upset loss.
The Toledo Rockets lost their opener 31-52 at Purdue as 10-point dogs. Toledo nearly kept pace with Purdue in total yards at 493-535 which was an encouraging college football gambling sign. Senior quarterback Aaron Opelt had a good college football gambling performance with 423 yards and 3 touchdown passes with 2 interceptions.
His top receiver is Stephen Williams who had 15 catches for 185 yards and 2 TD’s. The Opelt-Williams combo makes Toledo a live dog.
