At the onset of the 2018 season was a championship celebration at College Station, Texas. Jimbo Fisher’s arrival as new Texas A&M head coach was heralded as a defining historical moment in Aggieland. Fisher was even presented with the “future” national championship trophy on the day he was presented. Now THAT is what is called college football betting games expectations! The Aggies had a good but not great first season for Fisher. Supplementing all of the optimism are killer recruiting classes. Fisher has hauled in some of the best talents in the country.

The Bobcats Rebuild
At the beginning of the 2019 season arrives a new Texas State head coach. Jake Spavital arrives to try and produce the first bowl season in school history. Last year the Bobcats had a college football betting game record of 3-9. By reason of six payouts did they show hidden board value. Texas State was a dreadful 123rd for scoring offense and 74th for points allowed. Only once since going to D-1 status has Texas State posted a winning record (7-5 in 2014). Certainly, Spavital faces a daunting task. He was hired for his offensive ability but needs players.
Jumbo for Jimbo
Of course, everything in Texas is larger than life. Texas A&M is no exception. The account of a 2018 offshore betting record of 9-4 straight up and against the spread have expectations soared. Definitely adding fuel to the fire was a 52-13 bowl win over NC State. A 28-26 loss to eventual national champion Clemson enhances optimism. National metrics had the Aggies ranked 19th for scoring offense and 32nd for total defense.
Namely starting quarterback Kellen Mond’s return is key for college football betting games success. Mond (135.0 RTG, 3107 YDS, 24 TD, 9 INT) showed tremendous and rapid improvement as 2018 progressed. WR Quartney Davis (585 YDS, 13.0 YPC, 7 TD) will be among Mond’s favorite receivers. Also pitching in will be a new feature back Jashaun Corbin (5.7 YPC, 1 TD). Defensively the Aggies must show major improvement against the pass. Of great concern is that only one starter returns to what was an effective front seven on the defense. Linebacker will be a position of perpetual worry.
