San Diego State opens up the season against UCLA and is nearly a three-touchdown underdog in college football betting at the online sportsbook. It will be interesting to see if the Aztecs are improved this season in college football betting online action under new head coach Brady Hoke and new defensive coordinator Rocky Long. "It’s an attacking style of defense that I think the kids will love to play,” Hoke said, "It’s playing with reckless abandon and with sound principles.” The Aztecs can’t be any worse than they were last year in college football betting. College football betting online tells us that the Aztecs have some decent linebackers who should get a lot of action. Luke Laolagi, Jerry Milling, Logan Ketchum and Miles Burris return as college football betting information indicates "He’s a different kind of coach, but he’s a fiery guy and he likes to get after it,” Laolagi said about Long, "That’s fun to see for us, for us to get fired up.” Long did a nice job with New Mexico’s defense as they ranked in the top 30 in fewest yards allowed six times and among the top 40 against the run every season as college football betting stats indicate. The run defense was in the Top 5 in the country twice as college football betting stats tell us.
San Diego State is going to be underdogs a lot in college football betting online at the sports book this season. Their defense does bear watching though as they may make some big plays to steal a few games versus the college football betting line this season.
