Capping coaching changes: How new coaches will impact your college football bets


New names on NCAA sidelines this season

Capping coaching changes: How new coaches will impact your college football bets | News Article by

The head coaching carousel spins faster and faster with every college football season that goes by. Coaches are given less and less time to impact their programs and 2019 is no exception, with a laundry list of new names on ncaa football betting lines this season.

Here’s a look at some of the bigger coaching moves and what it means to football bettors looking to bet on or against these changes:

Kansas Jayhawks: Les Miles
The Mad Hatter is back! The former LSU Tigers head coach is trying to breath life in the Jayhawks in the Big 12, taking over a program that finished just 3-9 in 2018. Kansas has won just two conference games in the past four years and plays in a conference fueled by high-powered offense – rather than the stingy defenses Miles’ has battled in the SEC.

He does have a head start with KU QB Thomas MacVittie, who Miles recruited while at Louisiana State, and boasts a bonafide star on the ground in Pooka Williams Jr. (who is suspended for the season opener). Kansas could be a bit of sleep in the Big 12 with Miles chewing up the grass on the sideline.

North Carolina Tar Heels: Mack Brown
It’s a homecoming for Brown, who led the Tar Heels to ACC glory in the late 1990’s, which then paved the road to Texas. Now, at age 67, Brown is back in Chapel Hill and dealing with a UNC program that finished just 2-9 in 2019. He brought in offensive coordinator Phil Longo from Mississippi to implement the “Air Raid” offense and is pushing the tempo on that side of the field.

The Tar Heels are still ironing out their quarterback situation but have a dynamic duo on the ground in tailbacks Michael Carter and Antonio Williams. Defensively, UNC was horrible last season and it’s up to new defensive coordinator Jay Bateman to turn things around. He’s looking to up the aggression, which could mean more turnover but also more big plays allowed. North Carolina looks like an early Over team in the ACC.

Houston Cougars: Dana Holgorsen
The former West Virginia head coach has an uphill climb in the AAC. Houston opened the season versus Oklahoma in Week 1 and then faces Washington State in Week 3, before playing three of their first four conference games on the road. While that leaves some uncertainty for the Cougars out of the blocks, bettors at least know they’re going to get an explosive offense from Holgorsen. He will have dynamic QB D'Eriq King heathy and ready to go after he combined for 50 touchdowns (36 passing, 14 rushing) before missing the final two games with a knee injury.

The defense looks like a project with new coordinator Joe Cauthen taking over a program that was thinned by injuries in 2018 and lost top talents in the offseason. It could take some time for Houston to find its footing under this new coaching staff, and given their rough schedule to start the year, the Cougars could be a solid “play against” bet through the first month of the season.
