Rutgers vs South Florida Picks

South Florida and quarterback B.J. Daniels come into this game off a huge come from behind win on the road against the Nevada Wolfpack. The Bulls were down 21-6 but got it close enough to win with a late Hail Mary toss by Daniels.

The defense also played well in this game as the Bulls recovered three fumbles to keep this game close. They won’t have that same type of luck in the game against Rutgers. The Bulls will have some letdown after the big come from behind win and not enough time to adjust for this game.

The Rutgers game is not pretty and they have played a suspect schedule, but they have all of the parts to keep this game close. The Knights have a very impressive defense that will hold the Bulls defense in check.

On offense Rutgers counters with a rushing attack and slow-down style that will drain the clock and keep Daniels off the field. This makes the big points pretty tempting and the college football trends back that up.

The Scarlet Knights are 15-5-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last 21 road games against a team with a winning home record and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Thursday games.

The Bulls are 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games following a win, 1-8 ATS in their last 9 conference games, and 0-8 ATS in their last 8 Thursday games. In short, the Bulls are bankroll busters especially when they go up against Rutgers.

The Scarlet Knights are 5-0 ATS in the last five meetings and the underdog has covered 6 out of 7 games (ATS) in this series. Back the underdog in this Thursday night ESPN game.
