College Football Gambling: UTEP brings back Mike Price because of course it did

10.03.2017     11:50 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
In today's That's About Right news we have UTEP deciding to bring back Mike Price after Sean Klugler resigned. For whatever reason, Price is viewed as some sort of "favorite son" despite not doing much of anything outside of an 8-win season his first year on the job. UTEP got progressively worse under his watch yet he managed to stick around for nine (!) years. Price, however, made it clear he's not sticking around and he's there just to provide someone to talk to the press after a blowout loss. Perhaps Price can use last week's pointspread cover vs. Army as motivation; UTEP's first of the season. The Miners are currently +18.5 home underdog vs. Western Kentucky for Saturday.

College Football Betting Preview: UTEP Miners at Army Black Knights

UTEP at Army
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBSC
CRIS Opener: Army -24 O/U 54
CRIS Current: Army -23.5 O/U 48
Recommendation: Army

You can make a strong case UTEP is the worst team in the country right now and oddsmakers are having a real difficult time pricing them. The Miners have not only failed to cover a pointspread in four tries but have come within 10 points of cashing a ticket just once. Last year’s matchup in the Sun Bowl was a blowout from start to finish as the Black Knights put up 600 yards of offense en route to a 66-14 victory. Given the pace and style in which Army plays, it’s extremely difficult to produce that many points and yards which speaks volumes about UTEP’s ineptitude. Has anything changed over the course of a calendar year to suggest the Miners can be competitive? Considering UTEP is being outgained by over three yards per play this season, the answer is emphatically, “no.” There’s been plenty of rumblings that UTEP put no effort into prepping for last year’s contest as Army was the only option team they Read more

College Football Gambling: UTEP fires offensive coordinator

09.18.2017     07:40 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
We'd be wasting your time by rummaging through all of the horrific offensive statistics UTEP has posted through three games. Actually there is one worth mentioning; the team's 99.4 QB Rating. Rumor has it you start with 85.0 prior to the coin toss. Head coach Sean Kugler, who can't possibly last beyond this year, decided to fire offensive coordinator Brent Pease (remember how bad his Florida offenses were?). Tight ends and special teams coach Brian Natkin will now be in charge of calling plays. Miners travel to New Mexico State this weekend.

Louisiana Tech -6 at UTEP O/U 133.5
Recommendation: Under

Pretty remarkable turnaround for UTEP after starting the season 2-13. The Miners have won six of seven thanks to some savvy coaching by veteran Tim Floyd. Floyd slowed down the tempo of the games and created a lot of confusion for the opposition by constantly switching defenses. Over the last seven games, UTEP has allowed 58 ppg in regulation. This is the same team that in mid-December coughed up 76 in a home loss to 327th-ranked Northern Arizona. Louisiana Tech isn't as offensively dynamic as last year's squad that scored 78 and 80 in both meetings vs. UTEP. Instead, the Bulldogs have been getting it done on the defensive end of the floor with the league's third-best defensive efficiency (0.94). They've been especially dominant against the weaker offenses in C-USA. Tech has faced four of the five teams in the league currently averaging less than a point per possession and held those four squads to 56.3 ppg. One of those four was UTEP, who netted only 44 in the first meeting. What keeps this from being a great play is the value as the aforementioned game closed 141. And Louisiana Tech is also Read more
