Tips For Betting On New Orleans Bowl – Louisiana-Lafayette Guns For Second-Straight New Orleans Bowl Win As They Clash With East Carolina

Posted by Blake Frazier on 12/6/2012 5:54:47 PM

The Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns enjoyed last year’s trip to the New Orleans Bowl so much that they decided to come back for more. After securing its first Bowl win since 1970 here last year, Louisiana-Lafayette is back for the chance at a second-straight postseason win as they take on the East Carolina Pirates. While the Ragin’ Cajuns are favored by 5.5 points according to the sports betting spread, this game should be high-scoring regardless of who comes out on top, as both teams are averaging more than 250 passing yards per game this season.

Add to that the fact that each team is allowing at least 27 points per game and this matinee has all of the makings of a back-and-forth afternoon. East Carolina’s weak secondary will give the Ragin Cajuns plenty of opportunities to score, but whether they can stop the Pirates’ rushing attack will be the difference in this game.

East Carolina will have the luxury of a balanced attack, and will be able to dictate the pace of the game as long as they take what the defense gives them. The key will be maintaining that balance and not getting in to a shootout, where the Ragin’ Cajuns’ offense can really hurt them. Running back Vintavious Cooper led the Pirates with 1,030 yards on an average of 5.4 yards per carry this season, and his ability to wear down the Louisiana-Lafayette defense will be crucial. Making stops on defense will be tough, so ball possession will be crucial in order to avoid being worn down as the game goes on.

The Ragin’ Cajuns will be comfortable as long as they are still in this game by the fourth quarter, as they are no strangers to the comeback this season. Quarterback Terrance Broadway is capable of pushing the offense in to its high-tempo attack, and they should have no problem putting up a ton of points. The key will be slowing down the Pirates’ attack and making sure they don’t get outplayed when they don’t have the ball on offense. Broadway and company will be able to draw on last year’s experience, and execution will be the online sportsbook key.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

This should be one of the higher scoring bowl games to look forward to, and that suits Louisiana-Lafayette just fine as they gun for their second-straight New Orleans Bowl win. The Ragin’ Cajuns can score both on the ground and through the air, and as long as they don’t allow East Carolina to run right over them they should have no problem clinching another postseason victory.
