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

NCAA Football Betting Predictions are again winning at a remarkable rate and will continue to the BCS Title game in January 2018.

The (2-0) South Florida Bulls of the American Athletic Conference East Division will take the trip to the “LAND OF LINCOLN” for a week three matchup.

The teams will play at Memorial Stadium in Champaign/Urbana, Illinois. Or Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. (No decision has been made due to Hurricane Irma)

The game is on Friday. September 15, 2017. The Best College Football Sports Handicapper believes the Illinois Fighting Illini Football program has a long way to go before they can compete with the elite in the Big Ten.

Two less than an impressive home win against non-BCS schools shows the Illini must upgrade their talent. South Florida players are reeling emotionally from a week of hurricanes in the state.

Head Coach Charlie Strong must get the Bulls back in focus to defend their twenty national ranking.

The Opening Betting line has the South Florida Bulls as an Eighteen Point Home Favorite Against The Spread. The Betting Odds Total is Fifty Four And A Half Points for Friday’s contest.

The 2017 Illinois Fighting Illini are 2-0 out of the gate. Illinois has beaten Ball State and Western Kentucky by a total of sixteen points.

The strength of the Fighting Illini is defense. Head Coach Lovie Smith is in his second season in the Big Ten, and he understands the landscape. Smith once led the NFL Chicago Bears to a Superbowl appearance before moving to Tampa Bay to coach the Buccaneers.

The Fighting Illini has the luxury of having another home game with the Tampa area being in a national disaster mode due to Hurricane Irma.

Freshman Running Back Mike Epstein ran for 111 yards against Western Kentucky and seemed to be the focal point of the offense.

Smith and his staff want to implement a three yards and cloud of dust mentality on offense.

Former NFL star Hardy Nickerson runs the Illinois defense, and the unit is taking on his personality of being a hard hitting crew with domination a the line of scrimmage.

The unit will get the biggest test o the season against a potent South Florida offense Friday Night on ESPN.

The key to an Illinois win is to take advantage of the home field on a short week and win at the point of attack on both sides of the football.

Bovada.Lv has the Illinois Fighting Illini at +20,000 to win the 2017-18 Big Ten Conference Championship.

 

The South Florida Bulls must put the worries of the family behind; it’s hard to do for anyone especially College athletes.

Most of the South Florida Football team is from the “SUNSHINE STATE.”First Year Head Coach Charlie Strong inherits a powerhouse, and the Bull are the favorites to win the American Athletic Conference.

The Bulls are 0-2 Against The Point Spread this season and will face adversity for the first time this season.

South Florida beat San Joe State on the road in their season opener and took care of Stonybrook in their second game.

Dual threat quarterback Quinton Flowers in the primary weapon on the South Florida offense. The Miami native has a lot on his mind with his family being hit by hurricane Irma.

South Florida is the favorites to win the American Athletic Conference, and they have plenty of talent on both sides of the football.

The key to a South Florida win is to stay in focus and now worry about what is happening in their home state.

2017-18 NFL ATS Picks, and Odds: Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns.

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

NFL Predictions are again winning at a remarkable rate and will continue to the Super Bowl game in February 2018.

The (0-0) Pittsburgh Steelers of the American Football Conference North Division will take the short trip to the “BUCKEYE STATE” for their season opener.

Kansas City plays the (0-0) Cleveland Browns also of the AFC North in 2017-18 National Football League action.

Game time is at 1:00 PM EST on local Television Networks. The teams will play at FirstEnergy Stadium on the banks of Lake Erie in Cleveland, Ohio.

The game is on Sunday. September 10, 2017. This Sports Handicapper is anxious to see Pittsburgh hold out star running back Le’Veon Bell after a lengthy holdout.

Will the Best Back in Football be a liability or asset? The Cleveland Browns have been the laughing stock of the league over the past decade.

Fans in “NORTHEAST OHIO” eat, sleep and drink football. Hue Jackson must take it to the next level and have the team playing competitive football.

The Opening Betting line has the Cleveland Browns as a Nine Point Home Underdog Against The Spread. The Betting Odds Total is 47 Points for Sunday’s contest.

 

The Pittsburgh Steelers organization could see future Hall of Fame quarterback Ben Roethlisberger under center for the final season of his career.

Head Coach Mike Tomlin understands his franchise running back will be sluggish will be sluggish, he missed all of the training camp.

Rookie James Conner will get a chance to show his ability, his story of overcoming cancer is heart warming. Pittsburgh could have the best crew of wideouts in the NFL especially with the return of Martavis Bryant.

Tight End Jesse James is doing an excellent job after the retirement of Heath Miller. A healthy Maurkice Pouncey will propel the Steelers offense and former first round draft pick David DeCastro coming into his own.

Offensive Coordinator Todd Haley and Roethlisberger must be on the same page all season if the Steelers are to make a run at a World Championship in the 2017-18 season.

Cleveland will give the Steelers everything they can handle on Sunday.

Bovada.Lv, list the Pittsburgh Steelers at +600 to win the 2017-18 American Football Conference Title.

 

The 2017-18 Cleveland Browns can go nowhere but up; the franchise has struggled over the past few seasons on both sides of the football.

Cleveland got a few studs in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft. Offensive Coordinator/Head Coach Hue Jackson will get pressure from the front office to get the second round draft choice and Ohio native DeShone Kizer his shot at quarterback.

Running Backs Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson could give way to rookie Matthew Dayes. Standout wideout Josh Gordon is still serving a suspension, and Corey Coleman must prove his worth.

The organization spent a lot of money to upgrade the offensive line. Longtime tackle Joe Thomas will get help with the signing of guard Kevin Zeitler.

Rookie Tight End David Njoku is a future star.

First Overall draft pick Myles Garrett and Danny Shelton will anchor the defensive line.

All Pro cornerback Joe Haden is no longer a member of the Browns. However rookie safety Jabrill Peppers is a pure football player.

The key to success for Cleveland is to find a quarterback and stick with the decision.

College Football Picks, and Odds: 2017 Alabama Crimson Tide Forecast.

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

College Football ATS Predictions are again the best in the industry and will continue through the BCS Title game in January of 2018.

Top Sports Handicapper and his staff believe Alabama Crimson Tide Head Coach Nick Saban will hit a wall in the 2017 season.

Since the inception of the BCS playoff format, the Crimson Tide has made appearances all three seasons. However, the “TALENT LEVEL” is bound to run dry, and it will be this season.

The darlings on the NCAA Football landscape are 3-2 in the BCS postseason losing to Ohio State in the 2016 semi finals and Clemson in the 2017 Championship game.

Saban enters his eleventh season in the sideline in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and expectation are still sky high.

Alabama returns eleven starters on both sides of the football and will get a test right off of the back with a primetime matchup with Florida State.

The Alabama Crimson Tide host Fresno State, Colorado State, and Mercer in out of conference action this season.

SEC road trip against Texas A&M and the season finale “IRON BOWL” matchup against Auburn could decide the fate of the Crimson Tide in the 2017-18 College Football regular season.

However, win or lose in the opener against Florida State will not determine their destiny. The BCS committee will reward both schools for having the guts to schedule the game.

 

The Sophomore quarterback Jalen Hurts enters his sophomore campaign with confidence and having played some of the best competition in the nation as a true freshman.

Three next level running backs led by Bo Scarbrough will have the rushing attack clicking on all cylinders.

However, Hurts will try to make too many plays on his own, and it will cost the team a few times this season.

First-year offensive coordinator Brian Daboll and second-year o-c Mike Locksley will answer to Saban who has the final call in decision making.

The loss of Lane Kiffin will hurt the Alabama offense in the 2017 season.

All American wideout Calvin Ridley is a good football player but is nowhere near the talent of Amari Cooper.

Deerfield Beach, Florida native Jerry Jeudy will get plenty of balls thrown in his direction and will become the primary weapon in the passing attack at the end of the season.

The Alabama offensive line returns three starters at each position, center, guard and offensive tackle.

However, they’re in no Cam Robinson type of talent.

The key to success for the Alabama Crimson Tide offense is how well Hurts takes to the new play callers. Kiffin had a knack for calling the right play at the perfect time in a football game.

 

The 2017 Alabama Crimson Tide defense will be without six high NFL draft picks, including linebacker Reuben Foster who is a beast in the middle.

The Crimson Tide defense gave up nearly eighty points to the high powered offenses of “OLE MISS” and Clemson. They only allowed one hundred and five points to the other thirteen teams last season.

Defensive Coordinator Jeremy Pruitt will soon be a head coach at a high profile program, but for now, he is in charge of one of the best front fours in College Football, only Clemson is better in the trenches.

Defensive tackle Da’Ron Payne and end Da’Shawn Hand are the headliners on the defensive line.

The linebackers are average at best. However defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick is one of the best in the NCAA football landscape.

The Crimson Tide defense must avoid giving up big play especially against a good Florida State team in the opener.

The unit will get better as the season goes along, but they are vulnerable. Bovada.Lv lists the Alabama Crimson Tide at +240 to win the 2017-18 BCS Title.

Winning, College Football Betting News, and Notes.

Free Betting Odds Prediction: The 2017-18 Alabama Crimson Tide will go 10-2 and miss out on the BCS playoffs.

2017 NCAA Football Expert Predictions, and Odds: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Forecast.

Written and authored by Football Expert Analyst Al Presto. Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting news and notes.

NCAA Football Point Spread Picks is again the best in the industry and will continue through the BCS Title game in January of 2018.

The Best Sports Handicapper believes Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets football team did a great job of coming off of one of its worst seasons under the leadership of Paul Johnson last season.

Georgia Tech was 3-9 in 2015 but won nine games last season, including a convincing Bowl victory over Kentucky. With seventeen starters returning in 2017 expectations are high in Atlanta, and Johnson accepts the challenge.

Johnson is seeking his fifth Atlantic Coast Conference Coastal, division title and believes he has everything in place to compete with Virginia Tech and preseason favorites Miami.

Georgia Tech opens the 2017 season at the brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in downtown Atlanta vs. Tennessee.

The “RAMBLIN WRECK” gets Virginia Tech, North Carolina and Pittsburgh at home. However, road trips to Miami and Clemson could prove to be tough, but they have plenty of experience on both offense and defense.

 

The 2017 Georgia Tech offense will be without longtime starter Justin Thomas under center.

Matthew Jordan seems to be a perfect fit for the triple option and all indications are he will be the quarterback in 2017. The Junior has appeared in just fourteen games in his time at Georgia Tech mostly in mop up duty.

TaQuon Marshall will also have a shot at the starting quarterback job. Running Back, Dedrick Mills (771) yards last season leads a talented group at the position.

As usual, the Georgia Tech running attack is one of the most potent in the nation, (258.1) yards per game last season ninth in the FBS.

Junior Clinton Lynch will also contribute at the running back position.

A veteran offensive line led by senior offensive tackle Andrew Marshall will keep the Georgia Tech offense on the field for extended amounts of time, and they will chew up plenty of time on the clock.

Wideouts Brad Stewart and Ricky Jeune have the speed to go deep against athletes in opposing secondaries which will be needed against Clemson, Virginia Tech, and Miami.

The key to success for the Georgia Tech offense is for a quarterback to emerge and produce.

 

The Georgia Tech defense allowed opponents twenty-four and a half points per game last season, thirty-ninth in the FBS.

The fifth year defensive coordinator Ted Roof may have his best unit in his tenure with eight starters returning.

Senior Ends Antonio Simmons and KeShun Freeman must be more disruptive at the point of attack and also put pressure on the opposing quarterback.

Linebacker Brant Mitchell has the size and speed to play at the next level but becomes better at sniffing out plays to become great.

The Georgia Tech secondary is the strength of the defense. In 2016 they allowed opponents (229.4) yards per contest, sixty-eight nationally.

The numbers should improve in 2017 with all four starters returning, and there is also depth at both cornerback and safety.

Georgia Tech won;t have to face NFL draftees Mitch Trubisky of North Carolina, DeShaun Watson of Clemson, Nathan Peterman of Pittsburgh, or Brad Kayaa of Miami. Georgia Tech will be solid at every level on defense in 2017.

Bovada.Lv lists the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at +3,300 to win the 2017 Atlantic Coast Conference Crown.

Winning, NCAA Football Betting News, and Notes.

Free Betting Odds Prediction: The 2017 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will go 8-4 and finish third the American Athletic Conference Coastal, Division.

Winning 2017-18 NCAA Football Picks, and Odds: Temple Owls Forecast.

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

NCAA Football Predictions is again the best in the industry and will continue through the BCS Title Game in January of 2018.

This Sports Handicapper believes it’s rebuilding time again at the largest football school in the “CITY OF BROTHERLY LOVE.”

Former University of Florida defensive coordinator Geoff Collins takes over for Matt Ruhle as the head coach of the Temple Owls, Ruhle is now the coach at Baylor.

Collins brings the same defense first mindset to Philadelphia. Temple won its first-ever American Athletic Conference Championship in 2016 with a 34-10 win against Navy.

Collins inherits a couple of good running backs, some speedy receivers, and experience in the secondary.

Temple is now considered a stepping stone job they have lost Al Golden, Steve Addazio, and most recent Ruhle.

Geoff Collins brings a swag that they developed by getting his Florida defenses ready for tough SEC competition, and it’s contagious.

Temple will get a test right out of the gate as they travel to Notre Dame in the season opener.

Villanova, UMass, and Army are also on the nonconference schedule.

A Home date with American Athletic Conference foes Central Florida plus a September road trip to South Florida could determine the East Division Title.

 

The 2017 Temple Owls offense will be without four-year starter Phillip Walker and talented running back Jahad Thomas.

Sophomore Logan Marchi and junior Frank Nutile are competing for the starting quarterback job.

Former Coastal Carolina offensive coordinator Dave Patenaude assumes the same position at Temple; he did wonders with the offense at his previous school. Marchi and Nutile are in good hands under his leadership.

The Owls were a middle of the pack team in both rushing and passing last season. Junior Running Back Ryquell Armstead has the size and durability to carry the load, especially when the weather turns cold.

Jager Gardner is also capable in the rushing attack and will spell Armstead in the new uptempo offense.

Senior wideouts Keith Kirkwood and Adonis Jennings have size, speed and experience to help out the young quarterbacks in the passing attack.

The key to success for the Temple offense is for the offensive line to be able to pass protect, the two running back can create their holes.

 

New first-year defensive coordinator Taver Johnson lost eight starters from one of the top defenses in the nation. Including a linebacker in the first round of the NFL draft.

However, there is still talent on the defensive line with sophomore tackle Michael Dogbe and senior defensive end Jacob Martin.

Temple ranked third overall in the nation in both run and passed defense. They allowed opponents just 18.4 points per game last season, eleventh nationally.

Three starters including senior safety Sean Chandler who is a former cornerback.

North Carolina Central transfer Mike Jones is another asset is the secondary and is a dynamic kick and punt returner.

The key to success for the Temple defense is how well they adjust to the new system, but tough tackling is still their greatest asset.

Bovada.Lv lists the Temple Owls at +2,000 to win the 2017 American Athletic Conference Championship.

Winning, NCAA Football Betting News, and Notes.

Free Betting Odds Prediction: The 2017 Temple Owls will go 7-5 and finish third in the American Athletic Conference, East Division.
