NCAA football betting fans saw both teams make bowls last year although the North Carolina State Wolfpack were the far better value against the NCAA odds. The South Carolina Gamecocks finished the 2008 NCAA football betting season 7-6 straight up and 5-6-1 against the spread.
The Gamecocks finished poorly against the NCAA odds as they failed to get the cash in their final 3 games and they were decimated in the Outback Bowl by Iowa 10-31.
The Gamecocks enter the 2009 NCAA football betting season with considerable question marks as they return just 11 starters and are projected to start sophomore Stephen Garcia at quarterback. Garcia saw a good share of action last NCAA football betting season and hit on 53% of his 122 passes for 6 touchdowns and 8 interceptions.
Garcia also ran for 298 yards last year which was second best on the team. Steve Spurrier enters his 5th year as the head man with the Gamecocks and has been something of a disappointment with a mark of 28-22.
What was more disturbing was that the Gamecocks finished only 96th in the nation for the 2008 NCAA football betting season in scoring. Spurrier’s offense has not taken off during his time at USC. The North Carolina State Wolfpack finished last season strong at 6-6 straight up in the regular season after a 2-6 start.
The Wolfpack’s rally under head coach Tom Obrien has everyone excited and hopeful for the 2009 NCAA football betting campaign. The Wolfpack ended up in the Papa John’s Bowl as a result of that stretch run where they lost to Rutgers 23-29.
O’Brien enters his third NCAA football betting season at NC State with his strongest team yet and one more in his image. The Wolfpack return 14 starters for the upcoming NCAA football betting season.
Sophomore quarterback Russell Wilson is coming off a phenomenal freshman season in which he completed 55% of his passes with a eye-popping 17/1 touchdown to interception ratio.
Owen Spencer, who led NC State with 31 catches and a 22.3 yard per reception average, is back as well. Last year South Carolina shut out the Wolfpack 34-0 for an easy payoff.
