CFB Betting Tips From Pamela Maldonado: What to Watch in Week 1

If you are anything like me, you have been counting the times for the return of college football down since the second Clemson ended putting a whupping on Alabama at the national championship. The waiting is over and soccer is back.??
There is a whole great deal of uncertainty in regards to picking games of school soccer because of the turnover head coaches, loss of important players, along with freshman/inexperienced quarterbacks in Week 1. But any of us won’t stop from betting , now can it? There are many games on the background however a couple of matchups are that have captured my eye and a couple of teams that I’ll be interested in viewing due to new strategies, new players, new coaching.
Here Is What I’ll be watching in Week 1:
True freshman Hank Bachmeier was named the beginning for Boise State after it had been noticed that redshirt sophomore Chase Cord had to take a snap with the No. 1 offense after tearing his ACL midway through last year. Big shoes to fill as last year’s starter, Brett Rypien, left into the NFL, ending his college career with a 3,700-yard season, and Offensive POY honors at the seminar. If healthy, it was expected that the beginning would be seen by Cord but rather we get Bachmeier, who’s the very first freshman to become an FBS newcomer since Rypien in 2015.
On the flip side, you own a staff in Florida State that on paper??must produce a lot greater than it did??last season, finishing and 3-5 in the conference. The Seminoles??are consistently the best recruiting team from the conference, have a high returning production, receive a new OC at Kendal Briles from Houston, and also a (somewhat) experienced QB. The question is, how do we trust Willie Taggart, who is entering his second time, as a head coach? This past year, the group had a good defense but had been near??the??floor (13th) in??crime — before only Louisville, which??finished with a 2-10 record, 0-8 in conference.
Why I’m excited about the matchup: We get a complete unknown in QB drama for Boise State, a group that’s considered highly by the marketplace (9.5 regular-season win complete ) playing with a team which should see a much better year. However, does??Florida State return to a bowl (after its 36-year streak finished with Taggart), or boost its??2018 record of 5-7 to possibly 7-5 or even better?
Odds: Boise State is currently +5.5??on a neutral area. The Broncos are 5-0 ATS in their last five matches when playing with the underdog and head coach Bryan Harsin is 11-2 as a underdog over his livelihood, if you want tendencies.
Since I love games that are offensive, I like college football. Let us light up the scoreboard! Houston has QB D’Eriq King returning after capping a 2018 season off completing 63 percent of his passes with 50 touchdowns — FIFTY! As a top-20 passing offense, the Cougars will look to retain that art as they get a brand new head coach in Dana Holgorsen. Although Houston does shed OC Kendal Briles into Florida State, I’d anticipate a pure transition using Holgorsen, that had been the head coach at West Virginia (top five??in passing year), not a large change in offensive fashions.
Expect anticipate and points a Good Deal! In death defense, Houston ranked 130th out — Oklahoma was a smidge better, shutting the year out — although that means that they were dead last.
I’m looking forward to this matchup: You can create a drinking game out of this for each touchdown. Let’s not, though! Oklahoma has amazed the last few years because of QB drama from Mayfield along with Murray. OU has but is and well, they are both gone into the NFL he Murray/Mayfield great? Will he be able to put up those types of stats? It remains to be seen however I am sure of King’s skills.
Odds: Houston is +23??about the road with all the OVER/UNDER??place at 82.5 (steep). The entire world has gone over in six??of Houston’s past seven games and above in 11 of OU’s past 15 games.
Shane Buechele! The junior QB is a move from Texas who played every game as a freshman. He recorded 21 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Then came Sam Ehlinger, who eventually became Texas’ new player. The Mustangs closed out a year with a 5-7 record, going.
Arkansas State went season and that I can’t state that it will be replicated. QB Justice Hansen was great at his position, the best quarterback in the Sun Belt Conference, but he’s now gone. In regards Logan Bonner with little to no experience. Even the Red Wolves may have some regression without left tackle that is All-Conference their QB and All-Conference corner. To make things worse, they’ll be starting the season. After she fought breast cancer for the second time in 3 19, anderson tragically lost his wife . While Anderson takes some leave, defensive coordinator David Duggan will take over.
I think SMU has some upside: I’m looking forward to this game. We know what Buechele is really capable of generating so I’d think there’s some potential there for a QB that is high-ceiling. Add that to the combination of returning staff (HC, OC, DC all in their second year) and this Mustangs team possibly has a shot at a great season — at a six-win season.
Opportunities: Arkansas State -3.
Georgia??Southern QB Shai Werts didn’t throw one interception the entire year last year after playing nearly every snap — with just 10 touchdowns (zero picks!) . If this streak can last vs I need to see for forcing a lot of turnovers, an LSU defense that’s known. This is a sport where when a pick is thrown by Werts, I am changing the station. If I end up not reaching for the remote I would be shocked.
Truth: OVER/UNDER 53, LSU -28.
Paul Johnson, GT’s head trainer, retired after last season for running the offense and when GT is well famous for something, it’d be. Well, now that’s gone since GT has attracted in Geoff Collins, who was the head coach in Temple the last couple of years. The offense will change, but what’s expected? Your guess is as good as mine, but Collins has stated he’ll be running an”NFL-style, spread-based attack” — so a more traditional, pro-style offense.
Expect distinct, but distinct will not necessarily mean magic.
Odds: Clemson -36.
A couple of two groups that don’t??generate much enthusiasm, true. But NIU is a group, I think, worth mentioning. After causing it, the Huskies took the name of champions for the very first time since 2014, ending 8-6, 6-2 in conference. They’ve lost their bowl game the past two years (2018 vs UAB, 2017 vs Duke), however they have a few modifications which make me interested in seeing if they could advance. NIU has a new head coach in Thomas Hammock, that was the Baltimore Ravens RB coach for the previous five years although that does not have any head coaching experience.
RB Tre Harbison can observe a much bigger boost in manufacturing for this. Last year he was the very first rusher in NIU with 1,034 yards, finishing because 2015. I believe NIU will stay a team that is strong after dropping his 15 sacks and DE Sutton Smith into the NFL. This group has a HC coordinator, and also also a QB but an wager to win the MAC in +500 isn’t so far-fetched.
Truth: NIU -5.5, OVER/UNDER NA
