Why Colorado State is a good bet +20?

After a couple of horrible performances to open the season, the Colorado State Rams bounced back with a huge win over the Arkansas Razorbacks. To start the season, Colorado State looked like one of the worst teams in college football. The Rams lost 34-43 to terrible Hawaii. Then, inter-state rival Colorado beat them 45-13. But, in their last game, the Rams beat a legit SEC team, Arkansas, 34-27 as a +14 road dog. Florida’s better than Arkansas, but so what? Colorado State should keep the good times going after the win over the Razorbacks.

Why Florida is a good bet -20?

Are the Gators a safe bet for NCAA Football Week 3? The Florida Gators bombed against SEC rival Kentucky in their last. As a -13.5 favorite, Florida lost straight up, in The Swamp no less, 16-27. The loss should motivate Florida to dominate the overmatched Colorado State Rams on Saturday. Florida looked great in their first game, a 53-6 win over Charleston Southern. That must have gotten into the Gators’ heads because they came out flat against Kentucky. Dan Mullen won’t let his players come out flat again.

Colorado State at Florida Final Analysis: Gators Dominate Rams

Colorado State looked great beating Arkansas, but although Arkansas plays in the best football conference in the nation, the SEC, they’re not a good football team. The Razorbacks allowed Eastern Illinois to score 20 points in their first game, a 55-20 win as a -35 favorite. The Rams played a team more on their level when they went into Arkansas and beat the Razorbacks. They must find a way to step it up even more against a talented Florida Gators squad. For Florida, the X-factor is new coach Dan Mullen. Mullen’s one of the best coaches in college football. He’ll have pushed his troops this week so that when they finally hit the gridiron, they’ll be ready to put a beating onto Colorado State. Florida wins and covers the spread.
