NCAA Football Gambling Future Picks


With college football training camps opening in about a month, the anticipation of the 2009 college football gambling season is growing rapidly.

Now is a terrific time to dig through the preseason magazines in hopes of finding some nuggets you can put to use in futures wagers or when the season arrives.


One of the publications that should be in your handicapping library is the StatFox Edge.

Here is a piece from that publication that’s now available online and on store shelves nationwide.

September 3
South Carolina Gamecocks at N. C. State Wolfpack

North Carolina State closed the 2008 regular season with four wins to earn a bowl berth, before falling 29-23 to an equally hot Rutgers club in the PapaJohns.com Bowl. Coach Tom O’Brien’s disciplined style started to take root and 15 starters are coming back from last year’s turnaround squad.

The Wolfpack were embarrassed 34-0 at South Carolina last year and have the return engagement in Raleigh this go-round. The Gamecocks lost a number of talented defenders however, and last year’s offense was a mess, rushing for just 94.1 yards per game.

Gamecocks’ coach Steve Spurrier is only 7-7 ATS in non-conference games. Plus S.C. has the usual early date with Georgia on Sept. 12. South Carolina is 2-7-1 ATS facing non-conference foes before the Bulldogs.

Motivated Wolfpack do the job.

September 19
Texas Tech Red Raiders at Texas Longhorns

The first month of the season has only one game that truly matters to returning Texas players, Texas Tech.
The Red Raiders kept the Longhorns out of the BCS title game in 2008 and its payback time. Senior Longhorns QB Colt McCoy has a veteran offensive line and experienced receiving corps, led by Jordan Shipley.

For Texas Tech, normally coach Mike Leach’s offense does not slow down much when a new signal caller is brought in, however expected starter Taylor Potts will be starting on the road for the first time, after facing softies North Dakota and Rice. The home team is 8-3 ATS in the last 11 of this series, so add one more W to that total with team in burnt orange burning in-state rival.

September 26
South Florida Bulls at Florida State Seminoles

South Florida returns its two stars; quarterback Matt Grothe and defensive lineman George Selvie. However, coach Jim Leavitt has been scheduling softer since joining the Big East and has three milk cartons (Wofford, @ West. Ky. and Charleston Southern) before facing Florida State.

Even with quality players like Grothe and Selvie, the lack of big time competition will hurt USF at Tallahassee. The Seminoles will have already played the Miami Hurricanes and at BYU and thus will be better prepared.

Florida State isn’t about to let an in-state squad build reputation at their expense and buries the Bulls with skill and depth.

October 17
Wake Forest Demon Deacons at Clemson Tigers

More than anything, this is a nefarious scheduling slot for Wake Forest. The Demon Deacons suffered four ACC losses last season and their first three conference games are against teams on that list.

The last one is a home game against Maryland, whom they were white-washed by 24-0 last season at College Park. Clemson on the other hand will be off a bye and should be ready after losing as a favorite last year 12-7 at Wake Forest.

With the visitor 2-6-2 ATS the last decade, an emotionally worn-out Wake doesn’t fire against rested foe.

October 24
Oregon State Beavers at USC Trojans

The line on this Pac-10 clash probably won’t be fair, however it might not matter. By the end of October, the USC quarterback will be well-situated, behind a stellar offensive line for a perennial power that’s pursuing revenge after last season’s debacle.
Oregon State has holes to fill on the defensive and offensive lines and though the Beavers should be equally settled, the wave of emotion will be too much to overcome.

The visitor is 3-8 ATS in the last 11 of the series and coach Pete Carroll will have his Cheshire cat grin after this encounter.Bet on Football at Sportsbook.com

November 7
Houston Cougars at Tulsa Golden Hurricane

The Tulsa offense won’t be as potent as the last several seasons, nevertheless the defense brings back eight starters and they have long memories. The Golden Hurricane started 8-0 in 2008 and had BCS talk swirling around them until they lost at Arkansas 30-23.

Two weeks later, still afflicted with the pain of that first loss, Tulsa ran into a hot Houston club who hung 70 points on them, in a 40-point loss.

The Cougars are favored to end Tulsa’s claim to C-USA West title this campaign, however they will be coming off a huge Southern Miss home game and are stymied by rare November Hurricane in Oklahoma.

November 14
Utah Utes at TCU Horned Frogs

Utah grabbed all the headlines in the Mountain West Conference in 2008, with a perfect 13-0 season. The Utes won three games by three points or less though and arguably the toughest was against TCU, who led almost the entire way.

The Horned Frogs did everything right, but could not stop Utah on their final deciding drive in a 13-10 affair. TCU is the host for this campaign and the core players that led to their 11-2 season return.

With Utah looking for its road legs after three straight home games, the Horned Frogs will be well prepared and are 17-7-1 as single digit conference favorites at Amon G. Carter Stadium.

November 21
Penn State Nittany Lions at Michigan State Spartans

Penn State will start the season as the #6 team in the Edge, but not too far down the line is Michigan State at 20th. Third year coach Mark Dantonio has upgraded the talent at East Lansing to where the Spartans will have a legitimate chance to finish second in the Big Ten, if the cards fall their way.

Dantonio is a very serious type and expects his players not to accept losing. Michigan State was pummeled at Penn State 49-18 as 16.5-point underdogs and could set up to be home dogs this time around. With excess provocation and the home team 9-3 ATS, expect the Spartans to retake the Land Grant Trophy in 2009.

November 27
Rutgers Scarlet Knights at Louisville Cardinals

The last Thursday night game of the ’08 season was memorable for Rutgers and an absolute nightmare for Louisville. The Scarlet Knights crushed the Cardinals 63-14, outgaining them 671 to 318.

Many are not that optimistic about Louisville’s chances of regaining recent past glory, yet if coach Steve Kragthorpe expects to be coaching beyond this season at his present location, he needs his team to watch the film of last season’s debacle for this contest.

If the Big East plays out as presumed, Rutgers might take the ‘Ville for granted, instead looking ahead to a season ending encounter at home against West Virginia.

November 28
Rice Owls at Houston Cougars

The Cougars may have a tough time in Tulsa, but this offensive juggernaut has some dishing out to do themselves. Houston only needed to win at Rice for a right to play in the 2008 C-USA title game, instead was blasted 56-42.

Quarterback Case Keenum is dynamic and the Cougars should be right back in the same position this time on home turf. Rice loses all its important offensive weapons and these Owls are not going to be noted for defense. Houston may use 70+ point calling card again versus Rice. The home team is 7-3 ATS.
