College soccer opened with just two matches that were close Saturday and Week 1 is set to kick off. For many folks, this is the first time that you have made a wager since last soccer season, steering clear of all its uncertainty along with baseball. I took a peek at a few of the lines for Week 1 which may be worth wagering on??until moves that always come Saturday morning.
The complete for the trip to Clemson at Week 1 of Georgia Tech was 59. Currently,??the entire has only moved up 1 point. Both of these colleges played to a total of 70 and locked horns in Week 4. At that point in the year, the Tigers were entrenched in a quarterback battle between Trevor Lawrence and Kelly Bryant.
Running back Travis Etienne returns this year and he’d 122 yards vs Georgia Tech while Lawrence pitched four touchdowns and 176 yards. I believe there may be some small growing pains on the defensive side of the ball having to replace the line from one year ago, which might allow the Jackets to get using their run-first strategy.
This line could shut two??or three??points greater closer to the game and that I expect that the Tigers to score at least 50 by themselves OVER 60 is still a good line.
Tulsa visits Michigan State at Week 1 and the Spartans started as a 21.5-point favorite with the total coming in at 46.5 points. The entire has moved up 1 point to 47.5, and that I think is definitely going in the wrong direction. Last season, Tulsa and also Michigan State ranked 126th and 103rd respectively in points per game from 130 teams.
Granted, the Spartans coped with a lot of accidents that may explain some of the lack of crime, but was addressed in the offseason. Instead,??the coaching team was shuffled into various roles in hopes??that will spark things, but I am not sure it will. On the defensive side of the ball, Sparty had the 13th-best defense and returns eight starters that should cause difficulties again.
The line will stay set but with these teams moving UNDER a joint 16 times in??their last 19 matches, the lineup will likely come down jump on it until that occurs.
The line has stood??pat in this contest as it started with all the No. 21 Iowa State Cyclones being an 18.5-point preferred and the whole opening in 41.5 points. I am very surprised to observe supporting the Cyclones moving in the Panthers against an FCS aspect this lineup not proceed. Iowa State completed 2018 by??winning seven of the last nine matches, dropping to Washington State in the Valero Alamo Bowl and to Texas.
Quarterback Brock Purdy need to take a step forward after his true freshman season with an offensive line in front of him along with two senior wide receivers and also also a senior running back as well. Search for this team to beat up to kick the season off right. -20 will be closed over by this line when we get nearer to the sport.
Again, Alabama enters a year putting its sights??on a national championship with a smothering defense and a high-octane crime. The opening complete for this specific game has been 60.5 but has fallen three points.?? I believe that’s the direction that is incorrect and it’ll return to the opening line. Last year, the Crimson Tide had eight matches in which they posted more or 50 things, while finishing out two teams along the way, both times in November.
Arguably the best receiver in college soccer, returns for his junior year and joins a 2018 Heisman Trophy finalist, quarterback Tua Tagovailoa in Jerry Jeudy. Duke will have a brand fresh look after losing quarterback Daniel Jones to the NFL draft therefore the crime may??scuffle somewhat in the early going, however, Alabama can hit on the OVER 57.5 points??single-handedly.
The following game, similar to??the Northern Iowa/Iowa State competition, in which the lineup and total haven’t shifted since the open since Louisiana Tech and Texas’ total has remained steady at 55 points. The Longhorns averaged 31.1 points per game last season, ranking 45th in college soccer, and will have a similar look in 2019 with quarterback Sam Ehlinger and running Keaontay Ingram coming along with Collin Johnson, their No. 2??receiver last season.
The biggest question mark for Texas is a new-look defense that’s projected to possess four sophomores and a freshman holding down in the season as they adapt to college ball’s rate. Louisiana Tech running Jaqwis Dancy back and has been returning much of its offense quarterback J’mar Smith.
I think the two squads will locate their opportunities offensively while the defenses will want some time to correct and??come together. I??feel the total should rise so jump on it early.
