Sports-Odds.com reached out to football handicapper Matt Foust to get his insight on the College Football Thursday Night Football Game and a free Rutgers vs South Florida pick. Kickoff is slated for 7:30 PM and this Big East Conference match up will be aired on ESPN from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. The college football spreads posted by the odds makers have the USF Bulls (2-0) at -7.5 point home favorites over the Rutgers Scarlet Knights (2-0).
“The general public has already bid this game down one full point after opening at 8.5 points,” stated College Football Odds Expert Matt Foust. “Rutgers has dominated this series of late by winning five of the last six while covering in five straight but it is stepping into a hornet’s nest here.”
The Scarlet Knights beat Tulane 24-12 in Week 1 and then skunked Howard 26-0 in Week 2. The Bulls beat up on Chattanooga 34-13 in Week 1 and won a close one against Nevada 32-31 in Week 2. The Rutgers vs South Florida spread on the Total is posted at OVER/UNDER 44.5 points.
Foust went on to say: “The Scarlet Knights have yet to face a real opponent this season and they catch a USF Bulls team anxious to make amends for last year’s 17-20 overtime loss at Rutgers. The last time these guys played was a strange game as the Bulls out-gained the Knights 221 to -7 on the ground, yet, three missed field goals and some poor special teams play resulted in a Knights victory. No flukes tonight, South Florida wins this one, snapping Rutgers ATS streak in the process.”
The money lines show the South Florida Bulls SU at -305 odds and the money lines show the Rutgers Scarlet Knights SU at +255 odds. Dominate the sportsbooks in Week 3 with Expert NCAA Football Picks!
