College Football Betting – 2007 Vanderbilt Commodores Preview

College football betting fans know that the 2006 Vanderbilt Commodores went 4-8 straight up and 6-5 against the football betting pointspread. They finished last in the SEC East.

College football betting fans know that the last time the school went to a bowl game was in 1982. NCAA Football betting players see that the offense will be led by QB Chris Nickson (Passing: 55% COMP, 2,085 YDs, 15 TDs, 13 INTs; Rushing: 146 CAR, 694 YDs, 9 TDs). Also returning is super receiver Earl Bennet (82 REC, 1, 146 YDs, 6 TDs). College football betting fans know that most of the offensive line is also back. Senior DE Curtis Gatewood and senior MLB Jonathan Goff (93 tackles, 67 solo) both return to lead the defense. NCAA College football betting fans know that the question in 2007 is how good is Chris Nickerson? He was the team’s leading rusher last year and his passing started to come around.

College football betting fans believe that if he can hit a higher percentage of his passes then Vandy is going to be dangerous. College football betting fans know that the defense needs to improve against the run but with a lot of returning starters including Goff, it should be better. Football betting players think the schedule is a good one for Vandy. College football betting fans know that they have four home games to start the season and have only four road games all year at Auburn, South Carolina, Florida and Tennessee. College football betting fans know that those are all probable losses but the non-conference schedule is easy with Richmond, Eastern Michigan, Miami University, and a home game against Wake Forest. College football betting fans know that if Vandy can win those four plus pull off home wins against Mississippi and Kentucky that would get them to six wins and then they would just need one other win to have their first winning season since 1982. It is not out of reach.
