New Mexico State Behind 8-Ball as They Visit Florida
By Charles Jay
Can the New Mexico State Aggies offer any resistance for a charged-up opponent from a major conference that will be trying very hard to impress a new head coach? That may be a question on the minds of college football bettors as the Aggies line up for Saturday action against the Florida Gators in college football betting action that is set to go at 7:30 PM ET at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville. The great news for Vietbet customers in the fold is that they can wager on this game after it has already begin, with the feature called Live Betting Extra.
The Aggies are members of the Sun Belt Conference, and they are looking to improve on last year’s 2-10 straight-up record. They are very hopeful of that happening, as they have ten starters back on defense and eight on offense. Do they have the ability to “shorten” the game and stay in it, at least long enough to cover the football pointspread? Well, a lot is obviously going to depend on whether they can get Larry Rose going. Rose was a rarity for this usually pass-happy program last year, as he topped the 1000-yard mark (1102 yards to be exact), and if he can make any headway he is going to take pressure off quarterback Tyler Rogers.
College Football Betting Preview – Florida vs New Mexico State
In the college football betting odds that have been established on this game by the people at Vietbet, the Gators are huge favorites:
- Florida Gators -35.5
- New Mexico State Aggies +35.5
- Over 54.5 points -110
- Under 54.5 points -110
Here is the problem for New Mexico State: their quarterback, Rogers, has a hard time keeping the ball out of the enemy’s hands. In fact, he had 23 interceptions last season, which led the nation. Obviously he has to keep things under better control, but that is going to be difficult against this Florida secondary, which is “ball-hawking” to say the least. The Gators had sixteen interceptions last season, and this is generally considered to be the strength of this team. Keep an eye on Vernon Hargreaves, an All-American cornerback who will unquestionably be playing on Sundays.
Vietbet patrons should also take note that the Aggies are VERY small on defense. They’ve got linebackers who weigh less than 220 pounds, and there is nobody on the front seven (defensive line OR linebackers) who is over 250. So Florida has a real chance of overpowering them from that standpoint. This will come in handy for first-year coach Jim McElwain, who worked with some good quarterbacks at the University of Alabama and is still a little undecided about who will be the regular signal-caller in Gainesville. Both Treon Harris and freshman Will Grier are pretty good on their feet, but Grier, who redshirted last season, has the better arm.
Will a “look-ahead” situation help New Mexico State’s chances to keep this within five touchdowns? Florida has a rematch on tap next against East Carolina, who they defeated 28-20 in the Birmingham Bowl last year.
Vietbet is the best place to bet football this season, for many reasons, including reduced juice, which enables customers to lay a lower figure than the customary -110……Remember that Bitcoin is now accepted for all deposits, whether they are to open accounts or replenish them!
