Here is a look at more NCAA betting lines stats from the 2007 Golden Flashes. The Golden Flashes were 6-5 in terms of over/unders versus the NCAA football betting line in 2007. NCAA betting lines saw Kent State upset Iowa State in their first game and things looked promising. The team got to 3-2 with a win over Ohio and then lost their last 7 games of the season.
One of the only positives from the season was the play of running back Eugene Jarvis who had 1,669 yards according to college football betting lines stats. The game that seemed to start the downfall for Kent State according to NCAA betting lines experts was the loss in early October to Miami in which they had Miami on the ropes but couldn’t score enough points to win, losing 20-13. The team seemed to quit after that loss.
There are some positives to look forward to in 2008 according to NCAA betting lines experts as Jarvis returns and QB Julian Edelman returns from injury. Eight starters return on offense according to NCAA betting lines stats and nine starters return from a pretty good defense. The offense is all about the ground game with Jarvis. Edelman is more of a rushing threat than a passing threat according to NCAA betting lines experts.
The special teams must improve if Kent is to stay in games. The punting game was abysmal as they were last in the MAC and next to last in the entire country according to NCAA football betting line stats. That continually put the defense in bad position. The defense was not that bad overall, ranking 59th in total yards allowed according to NCAA betting lines stats. They were 77th in points allowed according to NCAA betting lines stats though because of the poor kicking game. The offense wasn’t very potent overall and horrible in passing. Overall they were 83rd in total yards but that was really stacked to the run. They were 26th in the country in rushing yards according to NCAA betting lines stats but 111th in passing yards. Overall, they were 95th in points scored according to NCAA football betting line stats.
