Most sports fans know the University of Cincinnati as a college football betting powerhouse, not as a college football betting school.
But the school gaining quite a reputation among college football betting fans and finished the 2007 NCAA football betting campaign ranked 17th in the country. This year the team has myriad question marks surrounding the college football betting season ahead but if everything lines up just right for the Bearcats they could once again be included in college football betting’s top 15 by season end.
Unranked heading into the 2008 NCAA football betting action this is not the same team as college football betting fans saw last year. After a meteoric rise from obscurity the team finished the season 10-3 and finished a very surprising third place in the Big East. Most college football betting players may have not even known that the Bearcats were part of the Big East, but thanks to last year’s coming out party this team won’t take any college football betting team by storm this season.
Much of last season’s success was due to the outstanding play of QB Ben Mauk. His eligibility for the upcoming college football betting season is much in question as he is currently suing the NCAA for an extra year of eligibility on medical grounds. This, more than any other factor will have the greatest single impact on the team’s NCAA football betting success in ’08. He’s a skilled player with a very high football IQ and his playing or not could be the difference between college football betting success and disappointment.
But the team is plenty talented and returns 16 starters this NCAA football betting season. The team’s spread offense attack is one of the most effective in the country and decimated Big East opponents in the college football betting action last season. But this offense has to run with the right QB and that’s why Mauk’s status is so important. The team also has some major holes at the RB spot, but is strong at WR, which is crucial in this type of college football betting offense.
One of the biggest challenges for the Bearcats in the upcoming college football betting season will be the schedule. The team’s biggest test will come on Sep 6 when the team goes to Oklahoma. But if it gets past the Sooners and finishes Big East play with one loss or les, it will be in contention for a BCS college football betting bowl bid.
