College Football Betting – Southern Miss vs. Troy at New Orleans Bowl

College football betting has seen a barrage of insanely long and ridiculous names over the past few years and the newly incarnated R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl surely falls into this category.

But with the economy in the state that it is in, it’s a wonder that any college football odds bowl games can even find a sponsor. College football betting fans should not be turned off by the name, however, as the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl, no matter how ridiculous it sounds, could be a college football odds jackpot.

College football betting is all about competition and in the New Orleans Bowl there should be plenty of that. The R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl is actually one of the bowls that flies farthest under the college football betting radar. The University of Troy? Southern Mississippi? Not exactly household names in the world of college football betting but they will be the two teams doing battle in the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl odds when the ball is kicked off in the Super Dome.

This is certainly not one of the marquee college football betting match ups that bowl fans have been waiting for all year. Neither team is ranked in any of the college football odds polls, nor anywhere near being ranked. But, once again, college football betting is about competition, and if the two teams in the college football odds are evenly matched (which these two teams appear to be), than the college football betting should be fantastic.

To be sure, neither team featured in this college football betting line is a world beater. Southern Miss limps into the New Orleans Bowl with a 6-6 record, barely bowl eligible. Troy on the other hand is an impressive 8-4 in college football betting competition this season, but plays in the cellar dwelling Sunbelt Conference. Troy has been made a four-point favorite in the early college football betting lines. That could obviously change between now and kickoff but judging by the scouting reports on both of these teams Troy looks to be the better of the two in this college football betting match up.
