Tips For Betting On Military Bowl – San Jose State Looks To Complete Turnaround In Military Bowl Clash Versus Bowling Green

Posted by Blake Frazier on 12/9/2012 5:28:34 PM

Originally slated to host Army and a team from the ACC, this year’s Military Bowl underwent major changes when the ACC didn’t qualify enough teams and Army failed to reach the six-win mark. The sports betting result should be a hit with fans, who will be entertained by a meeting between the 24th-ranked San Jose State Spartans and the Bowling Green Falcons in the nation’s capital. The Spartans surprised everyone by winning 10 games for the first time since 1987, completing a major turnaround after a 1-12 finish in 2010.

College Football Betting Line: San Jose State – 7.5

Bowling Green finished second in the MAC East division to qualify for its first bowl game since 2009, winning eight of their 12 games including a 6-2 record against conference opponents. The Falcons were burned in a 43-42 loss to Idaho in fourth-year coach Dave Clawson’s first postseason appearance, back in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.

Junior quarterback David Fales led the WAC in completion percentage with a 72.1-percent mark, leading the nation’s 11th-ranked passing attack with 3,798 yards and 31 touchdowns. While the Spartans thrived behind their pass-first offense, senior running back De’Leion Eskridge gives them a legitimate rushing threat with 992 yards and 10 scores. Eskridge averaged over five yards per carry, and while San Jose State will stick with its pass-first option, they will keep Bowling Green honest with the run game. The Spartans’ defense ranked 25th in the nation in points allowed, and have a top playmaker in junior cornerback Bene Benwikere, who led the WAC with seven interceptions and 11 passes batted down this season.

The Falcons don’t have many star players, but are led by senior defensive lineman Chris Jones and a defense that ranked ninth in the nation in points allowed. Jones led the MAC with 12.5 sacks this online sportsbook season, and he will need to have a major impact on this game. Sophomore running backs Anthon Samuel and John Pettigrew combined to rush for close to 1,500 yards and 15 scores, and will need that duo to step up and provide the spark for an offense that ranked 11th out of 13 MAC teams.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Even if Jones and the Bowling Green defense have a strong performance they will be in tough to win the Military Bowl, as San Jose State remains among the most dangerous teams in the country and will eventually put up points. The Falcons don’t have the offensive firepower to keep up with the Spartans, especially with how efficient Fales has been all season. These teams had very similar season for different reasons, but San Jose State’s offensive explosiveness will make the difference in this contest.
