ESPN is televising the game between UAB and Central Florida on Wednesday night and if recent history is any indication, the college football odds on this game should be close.
UAB has had three of their four games this season decided on the final play. That type of finish could occur on Wednesday which would make for some excitement against the college football betting lines.
UAB comes into this contest at 1-3 but they could easily be 3-1. They have not had things go their way at all. If they had a kicker that was decent it would also help. Josh Zahn missed five field goals in the double overtime loss to Tennessee. How can you miss five field goals? He missed a chip shot against FAU in their opener that would have won the game. He simply is a horrible kicker.
Bryan Ellis – The Blazers have a very good quarterback in Bryan Ellis. He came off the bench against Troy and threw for 360 yards and three touchdowns. He played well in the loss to Tennessee and has thrown for 733 yards in two games.
Central Florida is now 2-2 on the season -The Knights are 6-1 against the Blazers all-time including a 34-27 victory last season at Legion Field. Last year it was Central Florida winning 34-27 on the road. That game went over the total and three of the last four overall between the teams have gone over.
Trends Favor UCF – There is not much doubt who the trends favor in this game. The Blazers are 5-11-2 ATS in their last 18 games in October and they are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games on grass. The Knights are 5-0 ATS vs. a team with a losing record. The Knights are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 conference games. The Knights are 7-2 against the college football betting lines in their last 9 games overall.
Total Trends – Five of the last six UAB games have gone over the total. Four of the last six UCF games have gone over the college football odds at SBG. At home though, 13 of the last 18 Central Florida games have gone under.
