Bet on NCAAFCollege football odds will feature an intriguing Big East college football betting matchup of bowl contenders as South Florida will host West Virginia. College football odds handicappers will have their choice of two teams that are not showing college football betting profits but are showing potential for post season honors.
The West Virginia Mountaineers have a college football odds record of 6-1 straight up and 2-4 against the spread. The Mounties are 2-0 straight up in Big East Conference play. Last week West Virginia failed to payout with the college football odds in their 28-24 home come from behind win over Connecticut as 8-point favorites.
The South Florida Bulls have a college football odds record of 5-2 straight up and 3-3 against the spread. The Bulls have lost their last 2 games both straight up and with the college football odds. Last week they were manhandled at Pitt 14-41 as 6.5-point college football betting dogs.
West Virginia is one of the better offensive rushing teams in online betting as they rank 23rd in the nation for total yards on the ground and 30th overall for total points per game. In their win over Connecticut, Noel Devine had 178 yards rushing including the winning touchdown run of 56 yards with 2:10 to go. Devine is one of the nation’s top rushing assets with the college football odds as he has 912 yards, a 6.7 yards per carry average, and 10 touchdowns.
South Florida also has solid credentials with the college football odds as they rank 31st in scoring and a solid 20th on defense. Much of the Bulls’ statistics with the college football odds were built up on a weak non conference schedule, however, as they have not been nearly as dominant in Big East play. West Virginia head coach Bill Stewart said last week’s win over Connecticut demonstrated key characteristics of his team, namely resiliency.
“There are some buzz words you’ll find throughout this building - honor, family, integrity. Resiliency is a word that needs to be included also because we were resilient,” said Steward. “The Mountaineers never quit believing in each other or believing in their coaches.” South Florida has gotten the cash in their last 3 meetings against West Virginia.
