NCAA Football Betting Odds:
North Texas Mean Green
The Mean Green fighting machine turned in a 9-3 record this season to finish 2nd in the C-USA West Division. In the end North Texas lost the divisional race to UAB, who posted a superior 7-1 record in conference play. N. Texas on the other hand, finished the year with a respectable 5-3 in conference play. And although that wasn’t good enough to garner an invite to the C-USA Conference Championships, it was good enough to get an invite into this weekend’s New Mexico Bowl matchup. So which team has an edge this weekend? Well the NCAA football betting odds are sticking with the Aggies here and you should too. This is because North Texas is at a significant statistical disadvantage versus Utah State. Currently averaging 36.4, it’s looking like North Texas will have a hard time keeping up with the 47.2 that Utah State is averaging. Defensively Mean Green has a slight advantage as they’re only giving up 21.8 while Utah State allots 23.0. However, that’s not enough to cover the disparaging gap in each team’s offensive production.
Players to Watch: Mason Fine (3,734 passing yards, 27 TD, 5 INT), DeAndre Torrey (942 rushing yards, 14 TD, 5.9 AVG), and Rico Bussey Jr. (1,017 receiving yards, 12 TD, 68 REC).
Utah State Aggies
The Aggies turned in a 10-2 record this season that saw them finish 2nd in the Mountain West Mountain Division. In the end Utah State fell behind Boise State 33-24 in their final game of the season, giving the Broncos an invite to the conference championships. Coming off a loss, Utah State will be hungry to set things right this Saturday. After all, the program had a highly successful season in 2018 and will be looking to close out the season on a high note. The odds say they get it done against a much weaker offense this Saturday.
Players to Watch: Jordan Love (3,208 passing yards, 28 TD, 5 INT), Darwin Thompson (951 rushing yards, 14 TD, 7.2 AVG), and Ron’quavion Tarver (676 receiving yards, 7 TD, 62 REC).
