It’s time for NCAA College Football Bowls. Get ready to enjoy the best college football betting action at HRwager. Here is our preview of the 2019 Bahamas Bowl.
Bulls and 49ers are set to clash at the 2019 Bahamas Bowl, and it’s the first time ever that Buffalo, of the Mid-American Conference (MAC), will be playing Charlotte, of Conference USA (C-USA).
This is the fourth time that the Bulls will be playing a bowl game, and this is actually the first playoffs game for the 49ers in the history of their school.
Buffalo Bulls vs Charlotte 49ers Quick Analysis
Although the Bulls weren’t able to close with ten wins like last season, they are still active as they will be playing the 2019 Bahamas Bowl versus the 49ers at Nassau. Buffalo managed to overcome a poor start with victories in 5 out of their last 6 games, showing a great offensive work to go great with their phenomenal defensive lineup.
Both with 7-5 regular-season records, it’s the Bulls that are opening as favorites for this one.
Buffalo Bulls Betting Odds
It hasn’t been easy for rivals to move the ball against the Bulls during the season, and they are currently ranking 4th in rushing defense and 6th in total defense in the country.
When it comes to their offense, the team found itself lagging a lot until late October. The team scored 43 or more points during 4 of their last 5 games, getting the victory at each one of those while covering both the OVER and ATS.
Now, for their upcoming Nassau meeting, the team will need to rely on running backs Kevin Marks and Jaret Patterson, as the two finished the season with a combined 25 rushing scores and over 1000 yards each.
And, with QB’s Matt Myers and Kyle Vantrease completing just half of their passes thrown, the Bulls will definitely need to rely on their ground game to try to beat the 49ers.
Buffalo Bulls odds are -6½-115 and -240. The total for the game is 52½-110. Register now to bet on the Buffalo Bulls at HRwager.
Charlotte 49ers Betting Odds
Just like their NFL doppelgangers, the 49ers are a team that likes to run, and just like San Fran, they’ve decided to create their overall game around it.
A total of 4 of their players have sixty or more carries this year, and all four of them have at least 5 ground TD’s, while another 5 have averaged 5.0 yards per carry, or even better.
With that said, starter passer Chris Reynolds is likely to turn into the key player for this unit heading into the Bahamas Bowl.
Reynolds, who threw 5 TD’s versus 4 interceptions over the last 3 seasonal meetings, will need to rely a lot on his air work, and will also need to avoid struggling down the stretch.
So, do you think the 49ers can make their postseason debut with a victory over the Bulls? Or will Buffalo, as favorites, take the first December bowl?
Charlotte 49ers odds are +6½-105 and +200. Enjoy the best 49ers odds at HRwager. Register now to bet on college basketball.
