The Bearcats didn’t get any breaks from the Big East Conference this year either as they have to open the season on the road at Rutgers where they will be college football betting online underdogs.
College football betting tells us that Cincinnati head coach Brian Kelly was very upset about the schedule. "I screamed," Kelly said, "I yelled. It did no good." The Bearcats have a tough college football betting online schedule since they have to travel to Rutgers, South Florida and Pittsburgh. What makes it more difficult in college football betting is that the Bearcats have to replace a lot of starters from last season. The Bearcats were picked to finish third in the preseason media poll in the Big East conference as college football betting indicates.
Last year the Bearcats won the Big East but lost in the Orange Bowl to Virginia Tech in college football betting. Cincinnati has to replace 10 of their 11 defensive starters and opening on the road in college football betting doesn’t give them much time. "It's probably the biggest change that I've had to make in my time here at Cincinnati," Kelly said. "You don't have time to mess around with who's the starting defensive end. You don't have time to mess around two-platooning. You've got to get your best guys ready to play in camp."
Cincinnati has been a great college football betting team at the online sportsbook under Kelly. Not much was expected out of the Bearcats in college football betting but Kelly has turned Cincinnati into a very good team. The Bearcats have 21 wins and two bowl games in the past two seasons as college football betting results show. The Bearcats do return quarterback Tony Pike and he is one reason they can contend in college football betting at the sports book in 2009.
The Bearcats, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, West Virginia and South Florida are all in the mix in college football betting online to win the Big East this season. Rutgers has the easiest college football betting schedule so perhaps they have a slight edge. Connecticut might have the toughest college football betting online schedule as they face Notre Dame and North Carolina in addition to their Big East games.
