College Football Gambling Notes: ULL Ragin Cajuns on a roll

Louisiana-Lafayette -3 at Western Kentucky O/U 49.5

What’s going on in the Sun Belt Conference? New Louisiana head coach Mark Hudspeth is a candidate for coach of the year with one of the most improved teams in the nation. The Ragin Cajuns are 6-1 and leading the Sun Belt at 4-0 despite being picked to finish last by most prognosticators. Hudspeth was passing coordinator at Mississippi State the past two years and is making a big difference in Lafayette with improved play and increased attendance.

Last year, the Ragin Cajuns scored a season high of 31 points; this year they have scored 30 or more six times. Still, their offensive yards per game (337) are down from last year, but the defense is much improved allowing 350 ypg and less than 5 yards per play (despite allowing 666 to Oklahoma State).

Western Kentucky has lost 18 straight home games and enters this week’s contest off back-to-back road wins as underdog; not a long-term profitable profile for a home underdog the next game. Those two wins were against two teams a combined 1-11 this season. Last year, ULL lost to Western Kentucky 54-21 to snap the Hilltoppers’ 26-game losing streak.

Louisiana scored 34 points in its opening day loss against powerful Oklahoma State, and the Rajin Cajuns are 9-1 ATS on the road most recently. They are averaging 32 points per game; 10 points higher than either of the past two years. The line has barely been adjusted from what it would have been on opening day despite the great improvement by the Rajin’ Cajuns. Motivated and improved, ULL should continue to roll against the nearly hopeless Hilltoppers.
