Air Force was 6-6 in terms of over/unders versus the NCAA football betting number. NCAA football betting saw Air Force win six of their last seven games before falling to California in the Armed Forces Bowl. First-year head coach Troy Calhoun did a super job and surprised many gamblers that were involved in NCAA college football betting. Bet NCAA football stats show that wide receiver Chad Hall was the Falcons’ top offensive player while linebacker Drew Fowler was the top defensive player.
As surprising as Air Force was in 2007 they could take a step back in 2008 if they are not careful. Many of the stars from the 2007 team are gone including quarterback Shaun Carney. He is not the only loss as many other top starters are also gone according to NCAA football betting experts. The good news for Air Force is that Calhoun has a great system in place that can impact NCAA football betting. Three starters do return on the offensive line according to NCAA football betting stats while the defensive line also returns.
The bad news according to bet NCAA football experts is that Air Force has to replace Carney and Hall in addition to the entire secondary. The key according to bet NCAA football experts will be how well new quarterback Shea Smith does in Calhoun’s system. Last year the offense was the 2nd best in terms of rushing yards according to NCAA football betting stats. Overall they were 38th in total yards according to NCAA football betting stats with almost all of that on the ground. The defense was 53rd in total yards allowed according to NCAA football betting stats. They were a much better 25th though in points allowed according to NCAA football betting stats.
Many experts will look for Air Force to fall in 2008 but Calhoun could surprise everyone again. The Mountain West is not the strongest conference and Air Force can compete.
