The Gators schedule is very favorable and unless they slip up, an undefeated season is a real sports betting possibility this season. Gamblers making a college football bet will be flocking to wager on the Gators all year long.
College football betting on Florida is going to be popular and their schedule is one reason why. There are probably five or six teams that could be in contention to win the national title in 2009 but Florida is the 2-1 college football bet favorite because of their talent and their schedule. The Gators return Tim Tebow and perhaps the best defense in the country. Florida also doesn’t have to face Alabama or Mississippi in the regular season and their toughest game in college football betting looks to be at LSU. Even in that game the Gators are going to be favored by about a touchdown in college football bet odds.
Two of the other main contenders in college football betting this season at the online sportsbook, Texas and Oklahoma have to play each other so one of them is going to be out of the mix. USC is considered a team that could win the national title this season but their schedule doesn’t help them. They play in the weak Pac-10 and a single loss probably puts them out of contention. They also have a tough road schedule as sports betting shows, as they have to go to Ohio State, Notre Dame, Oregon and California.
Ohio State has a favorable college football betting schedule if they get past USC. They have a similar problem to the Trojans though because the Big 10 is not considered on par with the SEC. That means if the Buckeyes lose even a single game they may not be in the running for the national title. It also doesn’t help that recently they have been a BCS bust and no one wants to see them in the title game again.
There is always a team or two that upsets the apple cart each season in college football betting. While a team like Virginia Tech or Boise State could make some college football bet noise, the Florida Gators are the team to beat this season in college football betting.
