NCAA football betting fans see that eight starters return so the defense should be good again.
NCAA College football betting fans know that last season the Zips won when they ran the ball effectively and lost when they did not. They were held to -4 yards against Ohio and -13 against Western Michigan. They were 5-0 when they ran for 110 yards or more, and 0-7 when held to under that total. College football betting fans know that Ohio finished the 2006 season 5-7 straight up and a very poor 3-9 against the football betting number. College football betting fans know that Getsy was a productive passer who will be missed for his leadership as well as his skills throwin the ball. Even though he was mobile, he struggled to get time to throw because the line was poor. Carlton Jackson might be the starter but the running game will be carrying the offense for a while in 2007.
