For many gamblers the most important game to make a college football bet on is the last one of the day.
It is a chance to either bail out of a bad day or make even more money on a good day. Saturday’s late game has UNLV at Wisconsin starting at 11:05 pm Eastern and the great news for college football betting gamblers is that the game will be televised on the Versus network.
Since the late game is so important we need to really have a good idea of who we want to bet. The line at the Sbg sportsbook favors Wisconsin by 20.5 points. The total is 57.5 on the game.
12th Ranked Wisconsin – The Badgers are loaded with talent. They have a very good starting quarterback returning in Scott Tolzien and running back John Clay is supposed to be healthy for a change. Tolzien led the Badgers to a 10-3 record last season as he threw for 2,705 yards with16 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Clay had 1,517 yards with 18 touchdowns last season. The defense for Wisconsin is a question mark with five starters gone. They do have Chris Borland who was the Big Ten’s freshman of the year.
24 in a Row – College football betting stats indicate that the Badgers have won 24 straight non-conference regular-season games. The last time they played UNLV they won 20-13 in 2007.
New Coach at UNLV – The Rebels have a new head coach in Bobby Hauck and he is going to instantly make UNLV better. Mike Sanford was a disaster at UNLV. Hauck made Montana into a power with a great offense and he will improve UNLV. The problem for the Rebels is that their defense is terrible. They gave up 32.4 points per game last season, and ranked 112th with 220.6 rushing yards allowed per game. They are not going to stop the Badgers.
If you make a college football bet on this game you have to take Wisconsin and hope they don’t give up a late TD to blow the cover or you can play the total. The over could be worth a look since the Over is 6-2 in the Badgers last 8 road games. Betting over 57.5 is never easy but with a new head coach the Rebels are going to score a lot more points this season.
