Minnesota Golden Gophers vs Rutgers Scarlet Knights 10/19/2019 – The Minnesota Golden Gophers are on the verge of a bowl berth this season. And according to the best sportsbook, bringing down the Rutgers Scarlet Knights is a big step towards that direction. Victory would bring them one win nearer that goal. Add to the fact that the Scarlet Knights have not exactly done well on the road raises Minnesota’s chances this weekend. Rutgers has dropped five consecutive games since a home-game win, mostly blamed on their poor offense. It will take much for the Scarlet Knights to scoff online betting sites to pull an upset.

Minnesota Golden Gophers

The Golden Gophers are defying naysayers who believe they are legitimate contenders. A win over Rutgers is essential as they embark on a lighter opponent. The true test will come against Penn State and Iowa later on, meaning winning against lowly teams is a prerogative. They are one of 12 undefeated teams as of this writing. They are slugging it out with Wisconsin for the first position, meaning a win could hand them that right. Their offense is humming although they showed exemplary defense against Nebraska. Tanner Morgan will be at the offensive front, hoping to connect with receivers Shannon Brooks and Mohamed Ibrahim.

Players to watch: Tanner Morgan QB 86 CMP 124 ATT 1,378 YDS 69.4 CMP% 11.1 AVG 73 LNG 14 TD 3 INT; Rodney Smith RB 118 ATT 675 YDS 5.7 AVG 64 LNG; Shannon Brooks RB 34 ATT 215 YDS 6.3 AVG 28 LNG; Rashod Bateman WR 24 REC 533 YDS 22.2 AVG 59 LNG; Tyler Johnson WR 33 REC 459 YDS 13.9 AVG 73 LNG

Rutgers Scarlet Knights

The Knights are in for a rough game ahead especially if they continue to struggle on offense. Quarterback Johnny Langan is coming off a forgettable performance, compounding the woes of Rutgers. Against Indiana, he ended with five completions on 13 attempts and managed only a measly yard. With the Scarlet Knights aiming to win all games against lowly opponents, this one could be over soon. The defenseĀ could have lowered the odds for Rutgers. Unfortunately, they haven’t been doing that well in this department as well. They had their problems containing RB Stevie Scott III and WR Whop Philyor, who combined for 346 yards. In all, it will take major effort and a miracle to overcome the odds against the Golden Gophers.

Players to watch: Artur Sitowski QB 44 CMP 68 ATT 429 YDS 64.7 CMP% 6.3 AVG 74 LNG 1 TD 2 INT; Isaih Pacheco RB 89 ATT 384 YDS 4.3 AVG 57 LNG; Raheem Blackshear RB 29 ATT 88 YDS 3 AVG 8 LNG; Raheem Blackshear WR 29 REC 310 YDS 10.7 AVG 74 LNG; Bo Melton WR 16 REC 255 YDS 15.9 AVG 52 LNG
