Betting New Mexico State Aggies
The Aggies had theirs asses handed to them 7-58 by the Washington State Cougars in the season opener. Per the best online sportsbooks, NMSU entered that game as a 33-point road dog. Starting QB Josh Adkins passed for a respectable 221 yards but threw two picks and no TDs. He did rush for the Aggies’ lone TD (though he finished with negative rushing yards). Defensively, NMSU allowed more than 600 total yards and missed 19 tackles.
“We have another opportunity against an even better football team this week to go play like a winning football team,” head coach Doug Martin said. “I’m not so much concerned with the score as much as playing like a winning football team and not beating ourselves. This is about as close as you get to playing a NFL team. There are no weaknesses. They are ultra talented and really well coached. The goal for me when we play these power conference teams is that we can compete. At East Carolina, we beat Miami twice, we beat South Carolina, Texas Tech and Stanford in a bowl and we were a Group of Five team so it can be done. We are not there yet, but that is where we are striving to get.”
Betting Alabama Crimson Tide
The Tide opened the season favored by sport betting sites by 34 points over the Duke Blue Devils. Bama promptly delivered routing Duke 42-3. The Samoan Bulldozer Tua Tagovailoa ripped the Devils a new one with 336 passing yards and four TDs. The Polynesian Polyphemus spread the love evenly, hitting a different target on each TD pass. Jerry Jeudy led the team with 137 receiving yards on ten catches. On defense, Alabama held opposing QB Quentin Harris to a measly 97 yards and intercepted him twice.
The Crimson Tide hit the ground running, though some asshole is going to try to tell you they have feet of clay. Quasi-literally. Like, who cares about kicking? Especially when you have the Hawaiian Behemoth and Double J Jerry Jeudy making a mockery of opposing defenses. As Alex Byington writes, “Jeudy’s third catch Saturday involved a rare double-spin move in which he initially caught a 9-yard hook at the 42-yard line. Rather than power his way forward past the first-down marker, Jeudy spun back inside and then spun a second time to shake Duke safety Dylan Singleton, as momentum took him 5 yards behind from where Jeudy originally caught the ball. He then planted hard and simply sprinted down the left hash 10 yards before being run out of bounds at the Alabama 47.” See? He gets it.
#2 Alabama Crimson Tide vs. New Mexico State Aggies Game Prediction
Really? Are you serious, bro? Obviously Alabama, duh! If the Cougars crushed the ever-loving crap out of the Aggies, just imagine what the Tide will do. As a matter of fact, you can’t even imagine it. It’s unimaginable. When it’s all over, there is just going to be Mexico. Because it’ll be like New Mexico never even existed. Yeah, I know about the New Mexico Lobos, but you get the point. And if you don’t get it, here it is. Take the Crimson Tide and the points. Unless you think sport betting sites are laying it on too thick with 55 points. Which I don’t think they are.
