Upcoming Sports Betting News and Notes For CFB

Online sports betting is quite
profitable for sportsbooks because
there are so few elite sports bettors wagering on football compared to the
number squares who bet on sports. But
the professional gamblers and betting syndicates know where to go for
information and most importantly, how to use it.

Here is yet another look at the clipboard of the elite
football handicappers and sports betting services at OffshoreInsiders.com

NC State-Boston College

Harrison Beck, a Nebraska
transfer, gets the nod at starting quarterback for NC State. He led a second
half rally against Central Florida last week completing
17-of-28 passes for 207 yards. Beck was neck-to-neck with Daniel Evans in
battling for the starting job, which Evans eventually won five days before the
season. This is devastating considering the Wolfpack just lost their star
running back Toney Baker for the season.

Nebraska-Wake Forest

Wake Forest
starting quarterback Riley Skinner, a key part of last year’s Cinderella season,
is doubtful with a separated shoulder. Skinner
was hurt against Boston College.
The new starter is Brett Hodges who played well in relief going 17-for-23 with
129 yards passing, though he did throw an interception.


Horned Frogs sensational defensive end Tommy Blake, a
two-time Mountain West pick, returned to practice Sunday night. He missed TCU’s
27-0 opening week shutout of Baylor. But TCU head
coach Gary Patterson says that Blake’s status is uncertain for the game against
the Longhorns. Blake led the MWC last year with 16.5
tackles for a loss.


Missouri has
won three straight in the series. Missouri’s
highly touted offense must come out of the gate quicker than they did against Illinois,
who they beat in a thriller last week. Mizzou punted
on five of their first six possessions.

California-Colorado State

The Bears will have to avoid a letdown following their
humungous home win to Tennessee.

Indiana-Western Michigan

have this game around a pick ‘em game, so note that Indiana
has won 17 in a row straight up to the MAC Conference. But only three of those games were on the
road. Dating back to last year when Kellen Lewis took
over as Hoosier quarterback, Indiana has rushed for at least 100 yards in
7-of-9 games. New head coach Bill Lynch has emphasized the run.

Notre Dame-Penn State

The embattled fighting Irish take on a Nittany Lions team
looking for revenge. The Irish may be
vulnerable as evidenced by the 33-3 shellacking at the hands of Georgia Tech.

Sports Betting Tailgate Party

As sharp players bet the morning line in
college football, the college football sports handicapping experts at OffshoreInsiders.com give
you the edge against the Vegas odds.

The most important news is that Bodog
clients all report their new site NewBodog
has made a smooth transition and there is no interruption in service.

East Carolina-Virginia Tech

The betting line has gone up at all sportsbooks as gamblers are betting on
the emotion of the Hokies. This will be the first game for Hokie
Nation after the horrific and senseless mass murder. There will be ceremonies to honor the
innocent victims.

The pointspread winner seems so insignificant, but as Mike
Godsey of GodsTips tells us, “So-called intangible players are betting on
Virginia Tech’s emotion to be worth six to eight points.”

Arkansas State-Texas

Young Longhorns quarterback Colt McCoy will be without two
of his best receivers, Billy Pittman (injury/suspension) and Jordan Shipley,
though Shipley has a small chance of playing.


Not only is Virginia
traveling quite a distance, but they will face the largest opening day crown in
Wyoming history. The game sold
out Friday night. According to our Wyoming
sources, it is considered the biggest game the Pokes have hosted “in years”.

Alabama Birmingham-Michigan State

The MasterLockLine.com
has bar none the biggest sports service play on this game from the Couch
Potato. Though each team has a new coach and new starters, UAB
lost 28 seniors from a team that went 3-9 straight up. The Spartans have 13 starters back including
special teams. The Blazers lost seven of their leading 10 tacklers. UAB will play both Sam Hunt and Joseph Webb at QB.

Washington State-Wisconsin

offensive coordinator Paul Cryst is not afraid to
throw downfield and Washington State
is breaking in two new starters at linebacker and three in the secondary. With
the new rules, note Wisconsin’s
kickoff return team struggled. However
returning kicker Taylor Mehlhaff led the Big 10 in
touchbacks last season.


Just as if it were a basketball game between the two, sportsbooks have a high total of 52.
That’s in no small part due to the fact the Blue Devils have 11 starters back
on offense, but several players with new roles on defense. This is a realistic
chance for Duke to end their 20-game losing streak. They take on a UConn team that is off a 4-8 year. Duke is confident
having been very competitive in losses last year to Wake
, Miami
and hated rival North Carolina.

Central Florida-NC State

For those who believes games are won at the point of
attack, note that the Golden Knight’s have starters with a combined 110 career
starts on the offensive line. Compare
that to the Wolfpack’s 38. Projected starting tackle Jeraill McCuller is suspended
indefinitely. Tight end Anthony Hill is out for the year. State’s top defensive
tackle DaMario Pressley has been upgraded to probable
with a sprained elbow.


If California
does not cover the spread, it will not be because of lack of motivation. All sharp sports gamblers know it’s a big
revenge game for Cal, but last night on Sporting News Radio, Bears broadcaster Roxy Bernstein said he thinks it’s possibly the biggest
home game in California history. Speaking of California,
congratulations go out to the California (PA) Vulcans
for their 1-0 start in Division II.
