The 2010 college football betting season officially gets underway on Thursday night and it will feature the typical hype and hoopla that you would expect. And of course fans are all set to take in the Saturday afternoon action featuring several blockbuster matchups between highly ranked teams. But the Friday night action sandwiched between these two days is limited to say the least.
Two games are on the NCAA football betting schedule for Friday but both are worth checking out.
In one of these matchups the Arizona Wildcats will travel to Ohio to take on the Toledo Rockets. Kickoff for this Friday matchup is set for 8:05 Eastern Time and sbg opened with the Cats as a 15.5-point favorite with an over/under total at 60.
Neither of these teams is a college football betting power house and most casual fans know very little about either roster. However, one thing is certain: both of these teams can score and there should be plenty of TDs chalked up in this matchup.
Arizona, long known as defensive stalwart in the PAC-10 has changed its tune a bit over the past few seasons and with the strength of its roster on the offensive side of the ball this season we should see this unit lead the team and defense take a backseat for once.
The wildcats return Junior starting QB Nick Foles who should be one of the top QBs in the conference this season. He’s also got a three-headed monster in the backfield that if they can remain healthy should take a lot of teams by surprise this season.
After finishing the season with an 8-5 record and second in the PAC-10 (6-3) this team has huge expectations and is on the cusp of becoming a top 25 team. A convincing win over the Rockets would get them serious consideration from voters and many sports betting experts like this team’s chances of claiming the PAC-10 title and winning Rose Bowl berth.
Toledo is coming off a year in which it struggled in the college football betting competition. It closed the 2009 season with a record of 5-7 (3-5 in Mid-American Conference action) and struggled mightily on defense.
The team’s offense was something to behold rolling up 438.3 yards of total offense per game but the D gave up 407.4 yards a game.
Look for the Wildcats to score all night long, winning the game and covering the spread.
