NCAA Football Handicapping: Preseason Futures Betting Odds
NCAA college football fans have started counting down to the 2012 season that gets underway in just 91 days. A slate of 12 Division 1-A games gets the new season underway on Friday, August 30, 2012. If you need a pigskin-prognosticating fix, the popular online wagering websites here at ASB are bridging the gap by posting a wealth of pre-season wagering options.
BCS National Championship 2013 Betting Favorites
One of the more popular College Football Futures options is the 2013 BCS National Championship betting lines. After an NCAA imposed two-year ban from bowl game participation, the University of Southern California is back on the betting boards stronger than ever. After flying under the radar for two seasons, the Trojans will come roaring out the gates when they host the Hawaii Warriors on September 1, 2012, from the Memorial Coliseum in LA.
USC will be led by QB Matt Barkley, a contender to be the #1 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, and they are a +450 ML favorite to capture the NCAA Football title down in South Florida on January 7, 2013. Louisiana State University is a close second with a +500 money line, while defending BCS Champion Alabama Crimson Tide roll in as third chalk with +600 ML odds.
2012 Heisman Trophy Futures Wagering Lines
Matt Barkley decided to forgo the 2012 NFL Draft and returns for his fourth season with the Trojans and as a +475 favorite to win the 2012 Heisman Trophy. Let’s face it, Barkley got screwed when he got hit with the shrapnel from the exploding bomb that was the Reggie Bush controversy. Sticking with the USC program, while it was in turmoil, will pay dividends.
RB Montee Ball is expected to have a big year with the Wisconsin Badgers, as well as a first round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, and he is second chalk at +600 to be the top player in NCCA football this coming season. These odds, as well as Conference Championship lines, are up on the betting board at the top online sports and entertainment betting sites listed here at ASB!
