College soccer opened with two close games last Saturday and Week 1 is set to kick off. For a lot of individuals, this is the very first time you have made a wager since last soccer season, steering clear of its instability along with baseball. I took a peek at some of the ancient lines for Week 1 that may be worthwhile wagering on??before moves that come Saturday morning.
The total for Georgia Tech’s trip to Clemson in Week 1 was 59. The entire world has just moved up one point. Both of these schools locked horns in Week 4 and played with a total of 70. At the point in the calendar year, the Tigers were still entrenched at a quarterback conflict between Trevor Lawrence and Kelly Bryant.
Running back Travis Etienne yields this season and he’d 122 yards versus Georgia Tech this past year, while Lawrence tossed four touchdowns and 176 yards. I believe there may be some growing pains on the defensive side of the ball having to substitute the point from one year ago, which might allow the Jackets to obtain some success early with their approach.
This line could close three or two points greater closer and I expect the Tigers to score at least 50 by themselves OVER 60 is still a fantastic line.
Tulsa visits Michigan State in Week 1 and the Spartans opened as a 21.5-point favored with the entire coming in 46.5 points. The entire has moved up 1 stage to 47.5, which I think is going in the wrong direction. Last year, Tulsa and also Michigan State ranked 126th and 103rd respectively in points per game out of 130 total teams.
Granted, the Spartans dealt with a lot but maybe not much was addressed in the offseason. The training team was shuffled in hopes that will spark matters into different functions, but I am not certain it will. On the defensive side of the globe, Sparty had the defense and returns eight starters who??should cause difficulties once more.
The line will stay put but with those teams moving UNDER a combined 16 times in??their last 19 games, the line will likely come down so jump on it until that occurs.
The lineup has stood??pat inside this contest because it started with all the No. 21 Iowa State Cyclones having an 18.5-point favorite and the total opening in 41.5 points. I am very surprised to observe behind the Cyclones moving in the Panthers against an FCS aspect this lineup not move with all the hype. Iowa State finished 2018 to get a high note by??winning seven of its past nine games, dropping to Washington State in the Valero Alamo Bowl and to Texas.
Quarterback Brock Purdy should have a step forward after his true freshman season with two senior wide receivers along with a skilled offensive line in front of him and also a running back also. Start looking for this team to beat up on Northern Iowa to kick the season. This line will shut over -20 if we get into the game.
Again, a year setting its sights on a national tournament with a high-octane crime and a defense is entered by Alabama. The opening total for this match was 60.5 but has fallen three points.?? I think that is the direction that is wrong and it’ll move back to at least the opening line. While shutting out the way, twice in November last year, the Crimson Tide had eight regular-season matches in which they published 50 or more things.
A 2018 Heisman Trophy finalist, quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, returns for his junior season and can be joined by the best wide receiver in college soccer in Jerry Jeudy. Duke will have a fresh look after dropping quarterback Daniel Jones to the NFL draft so that the offense may??scuffle somewhat in the early going, but Alabama can hit on the OVER 57.5 points??.
The following game, similar to??the Northern Iowa/Iowa State competition, in which total and the lineup haven’t altered since the Tech and Texas’ total has remained steady in 55 points. The Longhorns averaged 31.1 points per game last season, ranking 45th in college football, and will have a similar appearance in 2019 with quarterback Sam Ehlinger and operating Keaontay Ingram coming along with Collin Johnson, their No. 2??receiver last year.
The biggest question mark for Texas is a new-look defense that’s supposed to get a freshman and four sophomores holding the fort down, which might cause some growing pains early in the season as they adapt to the rate of basketball. Louisiana Tech running back Jaqwis Dancy and has been currently coming much of its offense, most notably quarterback J’mar Smith.
I believe the two squads are going to find their opportunities offensively while the guards will need a while to correct and??come. I??believe the total should rise.
