The Cougars are 4.5 point college football betting favorites with a total of 62. Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl betting is actually a rematch of last year’s game that Houston won 34-28. This season Houston comes into Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl betting at 10-3 led by junior quarterback Case Keenum while Air Force is 7-5. "We had a great experience last year and we played in a great game against a formidable opponent," Houston coach Kevin Sumlin said, "We look forward to another great game this season, and we expect a great challenge from a very good Air Force team." Keenum led the country with 5,449 passing yards and 43 touchdowns this season. The Cougars averaged 43.9 points per game so they are going to be tough to stop in this Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl betting matchup.
Air Force wins by running the ball as they are fourth in the country in rushing at 273.6 yards per game. The Cougars may not have much success in slowing down the rushing attack of Air Force. Houston was a pathetic 112th in the country in rushing yards allowed this season. They have virtually no chance of slowing down the Falcons in Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl betting with those numbers. On the other side, Air Force was first in the country in fewest passing yards allowed so they might at least be able to slow Keenum down in this college football betting matchup.
Air Force comes into Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl betting at 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Falcons are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games as an underdog.
The Cougars comes into Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl betting at 4-0 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games and 9-4 vs. the college football betting odds in their last 13 games overall.
The last four Air Force games have all gone over the college football betting total. Five of the last six Houston games overall have gone over.
This game definitely has the potential for a lot of points to be scored. Last year they had 62 and both offenses this season look even better.
