Game Preview


 

Game Preview

 
Donovan Smith’s performance in Week 1 against UTSA wasn’t outstanding, but the former Red Raider still managed to pull off a 17-14 victory. Smith completed the day with a passing stat line of 22 for 34, 233 yards, and two touchdowns. While the Owls’ pass rush shouldn’t be as difficult as UTSA’s, Houston’s offensive line will still need to protect Smith if the Cougars are to improve to 2-0.
 
Flemming had a fantastic game in the season opener against UTSA, picking off two passes. Houston’s defense was one of the biggest unknowns coming into the 2023 season, but after a strong showing against a formidable UTSA offense, the Cougars might be in a better position than they initially thought.
 
Although the defense shouldn’t need to be at its best to beat Rice on Saturday, Malik Flemming gave Houston supporters a major cause to be encouraged after he and the Cougars forced three interceptions from UTSA quarterback Frank Harris.
 
JT In Week 1 of the collegiate football season, Daniels struggled against the Longhorns. Under relentless pressure from the Longhorns defense, the former Mountaineer threw two interceptions.

 


 
Despite the dramatic ups and downs of Daniels’ collegiate football career thus far, the former five-star will get a shot at a second Big 12 team in as many days on Saturday. Daniels showed a lot of heart against Texas, so if the Rice offensive line can hold the Cougars in check, we might see Daniels come out swinging this weekend and make some big throws.
 
Last year, Josh Pearcy led Rice with 6.5 sacks, and he already has one sack in 2023 thanks to his takedown of Quinn Ewers last Saturday. If Pearcy can get going early against the Cougars on Saturday, Houston’s attack might stall after the team’s offensive line struggled in their first game, allowing three sacks to UTSA. Pearcy concluded 2022 with 50 total tackles, 6.5 sacks, and 1 forced fumble, making him a player to keep an eye on as he has a chance to add to his 2023 total on Saturday.

How to read NCAAF Odds?

The way in which NCAAF Odds are read is just like when reading odds for an NFL game. The odds in college football and in all other sports in which a person can bet on work as a competition leveler for sports betting purposes, especially considering that there will always be one team that’s considered a favorite even by the slightest advantage. Odds are used under the understanding that it allows both teams to be able to have a proportionate or even equal number of bets per side.

When reading the odds, you will usually see that the favored team in the matchup will have a “-“sign next to its name while the underdog will have a “+” next to its name. What that means for a favorite team is that bettors have to bet however much the number next to the “-“says in order to make $100. For the underdogs, bettors are told by the number next to the “+” how much money they would make if they were to wager $100.

How do spreads work in College Football?

When betting on your preferred NCAAF picks, you want to make sure that you are understanding everything going on around your wagers, which is why understanding how spreads work is something pivotal for winning. When reading a point spread most of the times there will be a favorite and an underdog, that is unless the matchup is so even that a favorite cannot be named. A favorite team, which usually is posted with a negative sign next to it usually has points taken away by book makers, which ends up meaning that for this team to win and cover the spread they must win by at least the number of points previously deducted in order to cover.

For underdogs, they will have a positive sign and will either win the game outright or lose by less points than the ones added by bookmakers in order to cover. While all that might sound hard to understand and deduct, that’s where a show like BetUS TV’s “The NCAAF Show” comes into play like an MVP, giving college football fans all the right tools and of course the best NCAAF predictions to be able to win at all times.
