Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns vs. UTSA Roadrunners
Saturday, December 26, 2020 – 03:30 PM EST at Gerald J. Ford Stadium
It’s tough to bet against a team that has not only been winning but covering the number but that’s just what we intend to do in this matchup between 9-1 Louisiana-Lafayette and the 7-3 University of Texas San Antonio Roadrunners.
We all know that the college football odds are designed to be the ultimate equalizer but, in this case, I believe the scales have been tipped decidedly in UTSA’s favor due to the public’s infatuation with the Cajuns’ season-long success and their ability to cover the number over their last three contests. I can’t say I blame them but now that the number has soared to 14, it’s tough not to consider the other side and make a case for the Roadrunners to keep this one within the margins.
You might be interested to know that ULL is 5-5 against the spread this season while UTSA is 6-5 ATS. Let’s also bear in mind that the Roadrunners have won their last three and covered in two of those games. Any team that has averaged 41.3 points per game over their final three contests is definitely worth backing when getting a two-touchdown head start. BEEP BEEP – back the Roadrunners and cash a ticket!

Western Kentucky Hilltoppers vs. Georgia State Panthers
Saturday, December 26, 2020 – 03:30 PM EST at Ladd-Pebbles Stadium
The hook we’re getting on Western Kentucky in this game is significant because it gets us off the most important number in football. That’s right, the magical number three, because that half-point can be the difference between a push and a win when you’re betting the underdog and, in this case, I say, why not?!
The Hilltoppers have won their last three games and covered in four of their last five. This is a team that got much better as the season entered the home stretch and boasts one of the best pass defenses in the nation, limiting opponents to just 170 yards per game which places them eighth in that category.
Meanwhile, Georgia State has been idle for nearly a month and will now have to restart its engine against an ever-improving team like Western Kentucky. Grab the points and bet the Hilltoppers for your Saturday sports betting.

Liberty Flames vs. Coastal Carolina Chanticleers
Saturday, December 26, 2020 – 07:30 PM EST at Camping World Stadium
Coastal Carolina is one of college football’s biggest Cinderella stories this season, currently entering this one with a perfect 11-0 mark and ranked as the No. 12 team in the nation. Their only downfall is residing in the Sun Belt Conference where the competition is a few clicks below the big boys.
However, on the other side we should note that had it not been for a last-minute blocked field goal against NC State, the Flames would be cruising into this matchup undefeated as well. But the thing here is that Liberty has better stats than UCC in three of the four major statistical categories and has a few trends working in favor of them as well. Not only has Liberty covered in eight of their 10 games this year but check out these trends:
- Flames are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games overall.
- Flames are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games after accumulating more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game.
- Flames are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing less than 20 points in their previous game.
- Flames are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS win.
Call me crazy but if the best sportsbooks want to give me seven points with a team that matches up very well against a Cinderella powerhouse like Coastal Carolina then sign me up!
