Sheraton Hawaii Bowl Betting Tips – Fresno State Looks To Soar Over SMU In Hawaii Bowl

Posted by Blake Frazier on 12/9/2012 5:26:00 PM

The Fresno State Bulldogs gave sports betting fans a show this season with an impressive aerial attack. After clinching a spot in the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl with nine wins, the Bulldogs will get a chance to show the country just how dangerous their passing game is against the Southern Methodist Mustangs on the national stage. Fresno State has averaged over 40 points per game this season thanks in big part due to junior quarterback Derek Carr and a pass offense that averaged 322.58 yards per game this season, and could be in for a wild shootout against an SMU team that also has the potential to put up big totals.

College Football Betting Line: Fresno State – 11.5

Fresno State is listed as an 11.5-point favorite over a Mustangs’ team that was far too inconsistent to close out the year, splitting its final four games to finish second behind Tulsa in the C-USA West division. SMU has the weapons to put up points, but whether or not they can slow down the Bulldogs’ high-powered offense is a major question mark.

That offense will go to the air early and often in this contest, as Carr looks to cap off a 3,742-yard season in which he threw 36 touchdowns compared to just five interceptions. Carr was among the most efficient junior passers in the country all season, and has a very dangerous weapon in freshman wide receiver Davante Adams, who led the nation with 1,168 receiving yards and 13 scores. Fresno State has been incredibly consistent down the stretch with at least 42 points in five-straight wins to clinch a tie with No. 19 Boise State and San Diego State for first in the MWC standings, but will need to finish strong to make this online sportsbook season a success.

College Football Betting Preview: Southern Methodist

The Mustangs’ offense surpassed the 40-point mark just once over their final five games, but did have a two-game stretch in which they scored 72 and 44 in wins over Houston and Memphis so there is some firepower there. Junior quarterback Garrett Gilbert threw for 2,720 yards and 14 touchdowns, but he wasn’t very efficient with 13 interceptions on the season. SMU does have a stud at running back in senior Zach Line, who rushed for 1,207 yards and 12 touchdowns. Look for the Mustangs to lean on Line a little more in this contest as they look to control possession and prevent Fresno State’s offense from blowing this one open early on.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Although SMU should be able to keep this one close early on, it’s only a matter of time before Carr and the Fresno State offense takes off and blows this one wide open. The Bulldogs can score points in bunches and once they get going the Mustangs will have a very tough time keeping up.
