Bet on NCAAFCollege football fans will see a NCAAF betting matchup that is as good as it gets on CBS TV Saturday night as LSU hosts Florida. College football handicappers will have their choice of undefeated NCAAF betting commodities that are leading contenders for the national championship.
The Florida Gators have a college football record of 4-0 straight up and 2-1 against the NCAAF betting board. The Gators last played on September 25 at Kentucky and defeated the Wildcats 41-7 as 20.5-point favorites.
The Gators paid a severe price for the win, however, as college football’s ultimate star player, quarterback Tim Tebow, left the field in an ambulance and is listed as questionable for this college football betting showdown. John Brantley will get the call if Tebow cannot answer the bell. Brantley threw a TD pass at Kentucky in relief of Tebow.
Florida has plenty of other leading college football weapons besides Tebow such as Jeffrey Demps, who ran for 97 yards on 12 carries in their win at Kentucky. The Gator defense is one of the elite units in college football and held Kentucky to 179 total yards and just 11 first downs while intercepting 2 Wildcat passes. Kentucky ran for less than 3 yards per carry against the Gators.
The LSU Tigers are 5-0 straight up but just 2-3 against the college football board. Last week the Tigers scored one of the most thrilling wins so far in the 2009 college football season as they defeated Georgia 20-13 as 3.5-point road dogs in the final moments to cap off a wild 4th quarter between the hedges.
LSU dominated the college football stat charts against Georgia with a 368-274 advantage in total yards and a first down edge of 19-11. Charles Scott ran for 95 yards and 2 touchdowns including the game winner from 33 yards out with just 46 seconds to go!
LSU has rather ugly offensive stats as they rank just 63rd in all of college football for scoring and 85th in passing yards. The defense bends but doesn’t break and ranks 17th in points allowed. Tiger Stadium is a notoriously tough venue on a Saturday night and this one should be another SEC classic!
