NCAA Football Betting - South Florida vs Rutgers

NCAA football betting Thursday features a Big East matchup of probable bowl teams with the college football odds as Rutgers hosts South Florida.

NCAA football betting has seen both teams fall out of the Big East title chase but remain eligible for post season action with the college football odds. The South Florida Bulls have a NCAA football betting record of 6-2 straight up and 4-3 with the college football odds.

South Florida is coming off a 30-19 home win over West Virginia as 2.5-point home dogs.  The win snapped a two-game NCAA football betting losing streak and got the Bulls back on track to have a NCAA football betting shot at their first ever 10-win season.

South Florida’s strengths with the college football odds include an effective passing attack and a defense that is ranked 23rd in NCAA football betting for points allowed.  Quarterback BJ Daniels has had a nice NCAA football betting season after taking over for the injured Matt Grothe early this year.

Daniels has passed for 1096 yards and has a 10/6 touchdown to interception ratio.  The Bulls have a tough NCAA football betting ground attack led by Daniels, who leads the team in rushing with 5.6 yards per carry.  Wide receiver Carlton Mitchell is another NCAA football betting threat with 29 catches for 542 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Daniels said the win over West Virginia was a morale booster.  “It does help get the sour taste out of your mouth,” said the QB.  “There are a lot of teams in the country who have lost only two games, so losing two games doesn’t mean your season is over.”

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights have a NCAA football betting record of 6-2 straight up and 4-4 against the spread.  Rutgers last played on October 31 and scored a thrilling 28-24 win in the final seconds at Connecticut as 7.5-point NCAA football betting road dogs.

The win was important as Rutgers has developed a reputation for being a team that loaded up on “cream puffs” in the non conference portion of their schedule.  The Scarlet Knights are just 1-2 straight up in Big East play.

Despite not contending for the league title Rutgers is proud of their overall development as a program as a fifth consecutive bowl appearance is within reach.  “We take pride in that because when we first came here this wasn’t the hot spot to go,” said linebacker Damaso Munoz.
