2021 SMU Mustangs Football Betting Predictions

2021 SMU Mustangs Betting Odds, Predictions, Preview

After scoring over 30 points in nine of ten games last season the Mustangs will look to continue to ride that dynamic offense into another successful season. After finishing 7-3 last year it’s a bit surprising to see the win total set at only 6 but the public has definitely jumped on it already setting the odds to -159. SMU will have to replace the quarterback Shane Buechele but with plenty of offensive talent returning and Oklahoma transfer Tanner Mordecai and freshman Preston Stone in line to take over this offense.

My preseason best bet is SMU over 6 wins -159. I personally think they can eclipse 6 wins but I’m not gonna be betting this at -159 juice, I’ll watch this number over the course of the offseason but this is just too much considering the uncertainty in the quarterback room. I believe if SMU does have impressive quarterback play then this should be easy but If they face a lot of adversity then this team is nothing without their offense.

Preseason Best Bet: Over 6 Wins -159

SMU Odds to win 2021 AAC Championship

Yes +2500

The +2500 is a very intriguing number but I’m just not sure I can pull the trigger on this one. SMU does have the upside I look for in this kind of bet but the uncertainty in their quarterback room scares me a little too much. If the Mustangs had some sort of reliable defense to fall back on I would be more interested it’s just not enough at the moment. Last year they started out 5-0 before being dominated by Cincinnati losing 42-13, there are tiers in this conference and the Mustangs aren’t quite tier 1 yet.

2021 AAC Betting Odds

SMU Odds to Win 2021-22 College Football Playoff

Yes +75000

SMU doesn’t have the strength of schedule to be considered for a playoff spot even if they did have a perfect season. I will be looking at SMU on a week-to-week betting basis if I see some impressive quarterback play early on but I’m not interested in betting them to win the playoffs despite the humongous +75000 odds.
