Authored by NCAA Football Against The Spread Expert Analyst Charlie McDougall and produced by Charliessports.com for their 2014 R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl game on Saturday December 20, 2014 at 11:00 am EST on the ESPN Television.
The (7-5) Nevada Wolfpack of the Mountain West Conference West division will make the trip from their campus in Reno to the the Big Easy to take on the (8-4) Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’Cajuns of the SunBelt Conference in 2014 NCAA Football Bowl action. The team will play at Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. This Sports Handicapper thought the Nevada Football program would take a few steps back after long time head coach Chris Ault stepped down. Louisiana-Lafayette played well, but newcomer Georgia Southern won the Sun Belt Conference Championship. The betting line has Louisiana-Lafayette as two-point underdog Against The Spread, and the betting odds total is at 63 for Saturday’s game.
