The first week of the NCAAF is always very exciting. Especially when Florida universities play against each other.
This is my favorite part of the season. The good thing is that UCF last season did not lose a single game against other universities in the same state.
But these games in the first week are always dangerous for gamblers. Be careful when playing first week game without a good guy telling you where money is.
Florida A&M Rattlers
The Rattlers last season playing on the road did not have good results. 2-2-0 is the record playing on the road. In the second week the Rattlers had a game against Troy Trojans.
That game was the worst way to start the season on the road, the team lost 7-59.
The next two games on the road last season were victories. One against NC Central Eagles 55-14, and the second victory against the North Carolina Aggies 21-22. Last game on the road was a loss against Howard Bison 23-31.
If we continue searching in the past seasons of the Rattlers, we will realize that playing on the road has been negative for the team. 2015 (2-5-0), 2016 (2-4-0), 2017 (2-3-0).
This is the first game against UCF. Last season the Knights were lethal at the conference and had no mercy on anyone at home. The key to playing against the Knights on the road is defensive.
Last season the Rattlers were allowing up to 31.2 points per game, and the offensive scored 26.8 on the road.
The UCF Knights this year are once again favorites to win the conference. Last season the team won the title of the conference against the Memphis Tigers 56-41.
In 2017 the Knights also won the conference title.
After the departure of Scott Frost (last title in 2017, 6th in the AP Poll), the new coach Josh Heupel took the team in 2018. 12-1 in his first year, 8-0 in the conference with title included.
Last season at home the Knights won all the games.
The most interesting thing about those games at home is that the Knights won each game by 10 points or more. The first game at home was in week two 38-0 against South Carolina State Bulldogs.
That was the biggest victory at home last season.
At home the Knights score up to 46.0 points per game, the defense allows a little more than half with 23.5 points and 243 rush yards.

Free Week 1 NCAA Football Pick
Nobody wants to go against a team as dangerous as the UCF Knights. Nobody wants to commit suicide with money, especially in the first week where defeats hurt so much. This game is easily the first victory for the Knights.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: UNDER 64.5
That amount of points is just too much for an over play. Sportsbooks think that people don’t know anything about the Rattlers. But I see visitors playing hard in the first week, especially in the same state. The games in Florida are exciting for the intensity.
Do not waste time with the spread, that -47.5 points is a trap to catch the most money from gamblers this week.
