It’s not the prettiest game in the world to bet, but the truth of the matter is that the Green Wave are tremendously sharp, and they’re sharp enough to make us want to place a bet on them. QB Nick Montana (and yes, that last name should sound awfully familiar to you) is good enough to be playing quarterback at a relatively high level, and we think that he is going to have a pretty darn good year in the Bayou this season. He is dealing with a bit of a neck injury, but he is expected to give it a go in this one. On top of that, Louisiana Tech is really replacing its whole team from last season, not to mention the fact that Head Coach Sonny Dykes is now coaching with the Cal Golden Bears. The offense has majorly slowed down for LT, and we think that that could make a big time difference as well.
We really haven’t learned a lot about either of these teams to this point, knowing that the Green Wave have played against Jackson State and South Alabama, though we do know that the loss to South Alabama is definitely nothing that is good. However, we also know that beating Lamar 27-14 and only outgaining it by 77 yards for the game isn’t much to write home about either, and that’s what Louisiana Tech was going through last week. 60% of the betting action is on Louisiana Tech and the line is going in the wrong direction. If you’re not at least intrigued at that idea and cocking an eyebrow about it, you shouldn’t be betting on college football! The Green Wave are clearly the right play with the points, and the truth of the matter is that those points might not even be needed.
