NCAA Football Point Spread Picks, and Odds: 2017 Old Dominion Monarchs Preview.

Written and authored by College Football Expert Analyst Greg Nelson. Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting news and notes.

Football Predictions are again the best in the industry and will continue through the BCS Championship Game in January of 2018.

This Sports Handicapper believes the future is bright for the third rated NCAA football program in the “MOTHER OF STATES.” Old Dominion head coach Bobby Wilder enters his fourth season as a member of Conference-USA and is putting his stamp on the program.

Long gone is record-setting signal caller Taylor Heinicke and so is the pass happy philosophy.

The Monarchs were 10-3, (7-0) at home in 2016, finishing second in the East Division of Conference USA.

With the departure of Western Kentucky head coach Jeff Brohm, the Monarchs are setting their sites on the 2017 division title.

Old Dominion has the most balance of any school in C-USA, with a stout defense and adequate offense.

Old Dominion lost badly to Appalachian State, North Carolina State, and Western Kentucky last season, but are ready in 2017.

Nonconference games against ACC powers North Carolina and Virginia Tech in September could determine what direction the program is heading.

Conference USA foes Western Kentucky, and Rice are formidable opponents that visit Norfolk, Virginia in 2017.

 

Former wideout David Washington did a masterful job under center last season, but he’s gone.

Blake LaRussa is set to be the starting quarterback in 2017. Offensive coordinator Brian Scott is in his ninth season in the press box and is excited about his offense this season.

Running Back, Ray Lawry (1,255) rushing yards last season is the primary weapon on offense. Junior Jeremy Cox is the best backup running back in the Conference-USA, he ran for 732 yards.

The Old Dominion offense put up over thirty-five points per game last season, and it was a balance of running and passing.

Wideouts Jonathan Duhart and Travis Fulgham are top targets in the passing attack and Lawry can catch the football out of the backfield.

Junior center Nick Clarke anchors the offensive line which returns three starters from last season.

The key to success for the Old Dominion offense is to avoid injuries on the line and aggressive play calling.

 

The 2017 Old Dominion defense has potential, and coordinator Rich Nagy must continue to recruit the “TIDEWATER” area.

Old Dominion did a great job creating turnovers last season, and it’s one of the reasons they won them football games.

Four returning edge rushers should help the unit again this season. The 383.9 yards given up by the defense should improve in 2017, producing more turnovers.

However these are College kids, and hopefully, they don’t believe their hype. Senior cornerback Brandon Addison is a team captain and a high character football player.

Old Dominion is loaded in the secondary and will improve on their 226.8 yards per game given up through the air.

As much experience they have on the defensive line and secondary, losses at the linebacker position could loom big as the season progresses.

The key to success for Old Dominion this season is for young players to step up at linebacker.

Bovada.Lv, list the 2017 Old Dominion Monarchs at +500 to win the Conference USA Crown.

Winning 2017 College Football Predictions, and Odds: Indiana Hoosiers Forecast.

Written and authored by NCAA Football Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace. Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting news and notes.

College Football ATS Picks is again the best in the industry and will continue through the BCS Championship Game in January of 2018.

This Sports Handicapper believes the Indiana Football program has potential to move into the upper tier of the Big Ten East, Division.

The school recently parted ways with Kevin Wilson, who is now the offensive coordinator at Ohio State.

Indiana finished 6-7 in the 2016 campaign and finished with a postseason loss to Utah in the Foster Farms Bowl.

Former defensive coordinator Tom Allen takes over the Hoosiers program, and he will put more of an emphasis on defense.

For the past few season;s the Hoosiers have played competitively on the defensive side of the football.

The day’s of Tevin Coleman, Jordan Howard, and Nate Sudfeld are gone. It’s time for a new attitude at the Basketball-crazed Institute, and Allen could be the key to success moving forward.

Indiana will get a test early in the 2017 campaign as they host Ohio State in an ESPN-televised contest on August 31st. Indiana also gets Michigan and Wisconsin at home this season.

The nonconference schedule is winnable with Georgia Southern and Florida International University visiting Bloomington. The Hoosiers take on Virginia on the road in the second game of the season.

 

The Indiana Hoosiers offense, led by first-year coordinator Mike DeBord who comes over from Tennessee where he was the coordinator and quarterback coach.

Senior Quarterback Richard Lagow (3,362) passing yards in 2016 returns for his final season and they staff must make him more responsible.

The 273.8 yards per game through the air was twenty-eighth in the FBS. The running game must be more consistent.

DeBoard loses a 1,000-yard rusher, but he did a great job at Tennessee with Alvin Kamara and Jalen Hurd.

However, the Hoosiers return junior wideout Nick Westbrook (995) receiving yards last season.

Simmie Cobbs is also going to be an impact player in the passing game; he missed the entire 2016 season with a foot injury. Tackle Coy Cronk and guard Wes Martin anchors the offensive line.

The loss of NFL draft pick Dan Feeny could be huge. The key to success for the Indiana offense in 2017 is how fast they catch onto to new system.

They have skill players; the o-line must find ways to open holes for the rushing attack.

 

2017 Indiana University defense returns nine players from last season.

Indiana did an adequate job on that side of the football in 2016, they were in the upper 50 percent of College Football, and big things are expected this season.

Coordinator William Inge understands the Tom Allen way of doing business and should have the unit ready to compete.

Junior defensive end Nile Sykes has the size and speed to become a power rusher, wrecking opposing quarterbacks in passing situations.

Linebacker Tegray Scales is a next level type of player who is a tackling machine.

Hybrid linebacker Marcelino Ball can drop back in pass coverage and play the safety position, he feels comfortable both defending the pass or tackling.

The Indiana defense returns four secondary players with experience, and all have excellent cover skills.

Bovada.Lv, list the 2017 Indiana Hoosiers at +2,900 to win the Big Ten Championship.

2017 NCAA Football Picks, and Odds: Ohio University Bobcats Preview.

Written and authored by Football Expert Analyst Charlie Red McDougall. Charliessports.com produces it for College Football Betting news and notes.

Football Point Spread Predictions are again the best in the industry and will continue through the BCS Championship Game in January of 2018.

This Sports Handicapper believes the Ohio University Football program is one of the most consistent in the Mid-American East, Division.

Former Nebraska Head Coach Frank Solich enters his thirteenth season with the same position in Athens, Ohio.

The Bobcats won the MAC East division title and nearly upset nationally ranked Western Michigan in the Championship game.

Solich and “BOBCATS” are loaded coming into the 2017 season with skill players and a formidable line on both sides of the football.

Ohio University has been in the Conference Championship game four times since 2006 and has come up empty each time.

However, there is optimism among the faithful at the Institute, and they believe 2017 is their turn to win the MAC Championship. Solich and the Bobcats also lost their third straight bowl appearance, a 28-23 Dollar General loss to Troy University.

Ohio University plays Purdue and Kansas out of Conference.

They open up with Hampton University which should be a victory in front of the home crowd.

The Bobcats play three of four games in Athens in the month of October which could go a long way in determining the East Division title.

 

The 2017 Ohio University offense, led by twelve-year offensive coordinator Tim Albin. Ohio University scored a little over twenty-six points per game in 2016, seventy-seventh in the nation.

Quinton Maxwell lost his starting quarterback job in 2016 but bounced back to lead the team to an East Division title.

Junior College transfer Nathan Rourke will push Maxwell to be the starter under center.

Dorian Brown led the rushing attack with 825 yards, A.J. Ouellette will also get plenty of carries from the backfield.

Elijah Ball and Papi White are the primary weapons in the passing game which ranked seventy-second nationally last season.

An offensive line is a veteran group that can block as well as protects the passer.

The key to success for the Bobcats offense is for Maxwell to cut down on turnovers, the coaching staff will give hi a short leash.

Jimmy Burrow also enters his twelfth year as the coordinator of the defense. T

The coaching staff has been together for more than a decade and should take the program to the next level in 2017.

Defensively, Ohio University defense was the strength of the team in 2016 and ranked twenty-seventh in the nation, allowing 360.2 yards per game.

The unit was excellent against the run giving up just a little over 104 yards per contest, fifth in College Football.

However Tarell Basham and Blair Brown are now in the NFL, they can’t be replaced.

Junior defensive tackle Cleon Aloese has potential but must develop a work ethic.

Quentin Poling and Chad Moore are outstanding linebackers; they must become team leaders.

Five experienced cornerbacks will improve a secondary which got torched by opponents last season.

Safety Javon Hagan anchors the and makes the calls in the secondary.

Bovada.Lv, list the 2017 Ohio University Bobcats at +900 to win the Mid-American Conference Championship.

Free 2017-18 NFL Expert Picks, and Odds: Los Angeles Rams Forecast.

Written and authored by National Football League Expert Analyst Greg Nelson. Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting news and notes.

Football Predictions are tops in the industry and will continue through the Super Bowl Game in February of 2018.

This Sports Handicapper believes the 2016 Los Angeles Rams woes stemmed from the move from the St.Louis to the “GLITZ” of Southern California.

The main casualty of the losing season was former head coach Jeff Fisher, who is a native of the Los Angeles area.

Owner Stan Stan Kroenke and General Manager Les Snead parted ways with Fisher towards the end of the 2016 season.

The Los Angeles Rams went 1-6-1 in front of the home crowd last season, and it was enough to fire Fisher and his staff.

Enter former Washington offensive coordinator and thirty-one-year-old Sean McVay, who is the youngest head coach in the National Football League. McVay has blood lines in the league as Grandfather John, is a former San Francisco 49ers General Manager.

The Los Angeles Rams have a few more season’s at the Coliseum before moving to their brand new state of the art facility on the grounds of the old Hollywood Park.

 

The 2017-18 Los Angeles Rams offense must improve, the unit ranked last in the League in nearly every statistical category.

Matt LaFleur takes over as the coordinator; he was the Redskins quarterback coach in 2015-16. McVay is giving the guy a chance.

However, the head coach will be hands on with the offense.

2016 Number-one overall draft pick Jared Goff should be ready to run the offense this season. The former University of California signal caller looked like a deer caught in headlights in his rookie season.

It’s time Goff to show he is on the same level as the number two overall selection Carson Wentz of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Star Running Back Todd Gurley, yards rushing must get back to being the player he was as a rookie in 2015.

Punt returner/wideout Tavon Austin must bring more consistency to the position.

Long-time Cincinnati Bengals star Andrew Whitworth brings a veteran presence to the offensive line.

The key to success in 2017 for the Rams offense is to make plays in both the passing and running game. Goff must grasp the offense and make it happen.

 

Wade Phillips takes over on the defensive side of the football and his talent to work with along the front.

Los Angeles has one of the best defenses in the National Football League. They ranked ninth overall, allowing just 337.0 yards per contest in 2016.

Aaron Donald, Michael Brockers, and Robert Quinn form one of the best trios in the League. Donald is on the rise and is turning into a “STAR.” Brockers is a run stopper but has not played up to expectations, and Quinn is a sack artist.

Alec Ogletree calls the signals from his middle linebacker position and will thrive in Wade Phillips system.

Former Denver Broncos special teams star Kayvon Webster will get a chance to start opposite of Trumaine Johnson at cornerback.

Maurice Alexander is a quality safety, and Lamarcus Joyner is a throwback football players.

The key to success for the Rams defense is to get to opposing quarterback; the unit is the strength of the team.

Bovada.Lv, list the 2017-18 Los Angeles Rams at +1,200 to win the National Football Conference West Division Crown.

Written and authored by College Football Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace. Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting news and notes.

Football ATS Predictions are tops in the industry and will continue through the NCAA Football BCS Title Game in January of 2018.

Lane Kiffin returns to the head coaching ranks, this time in Boca Raton, Florida where he will lead the Florida Atlantic University program.

Kiffin ran the prolific Alabama Crimson Tide offense for the past three seasons, where they won a national title. Kiffin takes over for former Fort Lauderdale Prep legendary head coach Charlie Partridge.

Fans in talent-rich South Florida believes the Miami Hurricanes, FIU Golden Panthers, Florida Atlantic Owls provide the area with three quality programs.

Kiffin and his staff understand the talent base, and they will recruit hard in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties.

Florida Atlantic opens up the 2017 season at home against Navy, a road trip to face Wisconsin on September, 9th will show where the program is, talent wise. FAU could soar in C-USA East with the departure of Western Kentucky head coach Jeff Brohm and his high-flying offense. Conference-USA opponent Middle Tennessee will visit Boca Raton in late September. Florida Atlantic finished last in Conference USA, East division in 2016.

 

The 2017 Florida Atlantic offense is led by former Baylor coordinator Kendal Briles, son of Art Briles.

Both head coach and offensive coordinator have offensive minds.

Florida Atlantic will have a two-way competition at quarterback for the 2017 season.

Incumbent Jason Driskel (2,415) passing yards last season will compete with JUCO transfer De’Andre Johnson.

FAU averaged 398.6 yards of offense per game last season, and 188.5 came in the running game. Kiffin and Briles love to mix things up with a prolific passing attack.

Driskel has the edge with his decision making. However, the coaching staff likes the versatility of Johnson.

Running Back, Devin Singletary returns after rushing for over 1,000 yards in 2016.

Wideout Kalib Woods produced 934 receiving yards last season and will be the primary target of the passing attack.

The offensive line has talent and experience at every position.

Florida Atlantic will score points with the best teams in the nation this season.

The Florida Atlantic defense must improve from 2016. New coordinator Chris Kiffin, the brother of Lane has his work cut out.

Florida Atlantic ranked near or at the bottom in nearly every statistical category last season.

They allowed opponents almost forty points per contest and gave up 513.8 yards.

Trey Hendrickson must be replaced; he was one of the best pass rushers in the nation in 2016.

Azeez Al-Shaairis the leader of the unit and has size and speed to make tackles all over the field.

As one would expect the secondary is full of talent with the proximity to Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach.

Cornerback Raekwon Williams and Shelton Lewis are next level skills.

The key to success for FAU of defense is to play with enthusiasm.

NFL legendary defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin is also a team consultant.

The Best 2017 College Football Predictions, and Odds: Cincinnati Bearcats Preview.

Written and authored by NCAA Football Expert Analyst Charlie Red McDougall. Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting news and notes.

NCAA Point Spread Picks. Former Ohio State Interim coach Luke Fickell replaces Tommy Tuberville on the sidelines at the second best program in football rich Ohio.

The Bearcats were 4-8 last season, winning just one game in American Athletic Conference play. Cincinnati lost seven of eight down the stretch and administrators knew they needed a change.

By no means in Fickell Urban Meyer but he learned a lot from the legend. The former Buckeye and Columbus, Ohio native understands the recruiting process in the “BUCKEYE STATE.” Fickell immediately brought in a coaching staff that also has an eye for talent.

The Bearcats open the 2017 season with three of their first four games on the road, including a September, 9th trip to Ann Arbor, Michigan to face the Wolverines.

However, they avoid Memphis in the AAC East division.

The coaching staff has their eyes on a few Freshman who is capable of making an immediate impact.

The Cincinnati Bearcats is an offense led by the First-year coordinator Mike Denbrock.

The 2016 Bearcats were 99th in the nation in total offense with just 374.2 yards per contest.

Expectations went much higher after the unit was nearly unstoppable the year before. The 19.3 points of produced were near the bottom of the FBS.

Quarterback Hayden Moore returns with a year of experience under his belt. However, he must cut down on his turnovers, eighteen interceptions with twenty touchdowns.

Sophomore Ross Trail has shown promise throwing the football in spring practice. Wideout Devin Gray led the team with 860 receiving yards last season.

The best player on offense is Running Back Mike Boone who returns for his senior season. The offensive line is set with two versatile tackles.

The key to success for the Cincinnati offense is to play smash mouth football along the line of scrimmage.

The days of Gunner Kiel throwing sixty times per game are over.

 

Former Ohio State Buckeye star Marcus Freeman takes over the 2017 Cincinnati defense as the coordinator.

The Dayton, Ohio native has plenty of ties to the area and could lure players from his Alma Mater, Wayne High School.

The Bearcats defense was a middle of the pack in the College Football landscape. The unit allowed 26.9 points and 469 yards per contest.

However, the defense has plenty of talent and experience at all three levels.

Junior Cortez Broughton is one of the most underrated players in the American Athletic Conference.

Senior Linebacker Jaylyin Minor is the best on the team at that position. Seven players who saw action in 2016 return to the secondary.

The key to success for the Bearcats is to tackle better, which Fickell and Freeman will make sure happens.
