NCAA football betting handicappers have rising expectations for the North Carolina Tar Heels while the Connecticut Huskies remain an online betting question mark. North Carolina got off to an easy start for the 2009 NCAA football betting season as they beat the Citadel last week 40-6 in a game that was not on the online betting board.
Head coach Butch Davis begins his 3rd NCAA football betting season at Carolina with his strongest team yet and is coming off a 2008 online betting season in which he went 8-5 straight up and 7-5 against the NCAA football betting board.
North Carolina earned a NCAA football betting bowl berth at the Meineke Car Care Bowl where they lost to West Virginia 30-31 but got the cash as 2-point dogs. The Tar Heels return 6 starters on offense, including junior quarterback TJ Yates, and 9 on defense to make for a dangerous NCAA football betting commodity.
Carolina’s top 3 rushers from 2008 are all back for this NCAA football betting season and are led by Shaun Draughn, a junior that ran for 898 yards last year. The Tar Heels are lacking in experience at receiver as 5 of their top 6 from last year are gone from the team.
The Connecticut Huskies escaped last week in their NCAA football betting opener with a 23-16 win at Ohio as 4-point road chalks. The Huskies are light on experience as they have just 6 starters returning on offense and 6 on defense with a major loss at running back.
Donald Brown, who rushed for 2187 yards last year, has moved on to the NFL. It is hoped that sophomore Jordan Todman will be the new NCAA football betting feature back for the Huskies and he got off to a nice start last week with 157 yards and a touchdown.
Junior quarterback Zach Frazer had a rough NCAA football betting opener at quarterback with 3 interceptions. The Connecticut defense had a strong opener and was the difference in their win as they held Ohio to 247 total yards including just 61 on the ground.
