Jacksonville State vs UAB Prediction & College Football Odds for Week 1

  • UAB comes away with the victory
  • Jacksonville State beats the spread
  • Total points will exceed 50

Hello and welcome to our Jacksonville State vs UAB prediction! Hope you enjoy the ride.

This might be one of the best UAB teams that they’ve managed to put together under head coach, Bill Clark. They simply have too much talent, experience, and too deep of a roster for Jacksonville State to stick with them. UAB is coming off of a season in which they were the Conference USA champs, and they have most of their roster returning for this season.

Jacksonville State is a solid, talented team with a tough defense and a veteran quarterback, but UAB is simply too good. If Jacksonville State has a chance to win this football game, then their resilient defense is going to have to come up big.

They have playmakers on that side of the ball, so expect some different coverages and for Jacksonville State to take some chances and hope for a big play.

Jacksonville State vs UAB Prediction: Spread

Although Jacksonville State may not come away with the victory, listing them as 14.5 point underdogs is a slap in the face. They have a top-tier defense and enough weapons on the offensive side to give UAB a run for their money. Expect aggressive plays on both sides of the ball from Jacksonville State.

UAB will have to play a nearly perfect game to cover the spread, and don’t expect that in the first game of the season. Down the stretch, UAB is simply too good and has too many weapons for Jacksonville State to stick with them, but the game will be decided by two touchdowns or less.

Free Prediction: UAB will not cover the spread

Jacksonville State vs UAB Prediction: Moneyline

As defending conference champs, UAB is out to prove that last year wasn’t a fluke. The season was shortened by a few games and look for the Blazers to come out hot and with a chip on their shoulder as they look to defend their crown.

Jacksonville State will give UAB a fight, but the Gamecocks defense will eventually wear down under UAB’s running and passing game. It could go down to the wire, but UAB will come away with the victory.

  • Free Prediction: UAB wins the season opener

Jacksonville State vs UAB Prediction: Total

This could end up being a moderately high-scoring game as both teams have good defenses and capable offenses. Expect some struggles early in the season opener and big points later as the defenses wear down and the offenses get into sync.

Expect this game to exceed the point total prediction of 47.5. Both offenses are simply too good to be held in check for long.

  • Free Prediction: UAB 35 Jacksonville State 24
