I’ve spent the last five weeks or so revealing a lot of the information I delve into each offseason in preparation for the college football season. After going back through the coaching changes, the Stability Scores, the transitional systems, the recruiting rankings and playing out the schedule by my power ratings, I’ve locked in on 10 team season win total bets that I will be making. Here are those 10 wagers, with the odds available at DraftKings.
If you missed any of that key information I’ve released over the last month and a half regarding college football season preparations, simply go into your Point Spread Weekly archive and look through issues 40-45. Most, if not all, of it will also be made available in the VSiN College Football Preseason Betting Guide, due out at the end of July.
FIVE OVER WAGERS
Louisiana-Monroe Over 1.5 wins
You might find it strange to start with a team like Louisiana-Monroe for my best options on Over season win total bets, but this number 1.5 just doesn’t make sense to me. Yes, the Warhawks went 0-10 last year, but that season was so far from the norm, and so far from the typical results for this program that I am prepared to label it as a fluke. Before last season, ULM had won at least four games in every season since 2004 with the exception of 2015. This is not a doormat program, and with the change to veteran coach Terry Bowden and offensive coordinator Rich Rodriguez, I don’t expect it to stay on the bottom for long. There is an almost certain win versus Jackson State on the schedule for Week 2 and plenty of other chances in the Sun Belt to make this wager a winner.
