2021 UCF Knights Football Betting Predictions

June 21, 2021

2021 UCF Knights Betting Odds, Predictions, Preview

After a solid 6-4 season the Knights look to turn things around and compete for a conference championship. UCF made one of the biggest offseason coaching moves hiring former Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn. Teaming the coaching mastermind with one of the most talented quarterbacks in the nation will be a sight to see for UCF fans all around the world. With 3,570 passing yards, 32 touchdowns, and only 6 interceptions quarterback Dillon Gabriel showed flashes of greatness in his rookie season.

After losing top receiver Marlon Williams the Knights truly did see the advantages of a big-name coach with the transfer portal acquisitions of receiver Brandon Johnson, of Tennessee, running back Isaiah Bowser from Northwestern, and receiver Nate Craig-Myers of Auburn. This team suddenly has access to the biggest talent pool they have ever had before.

My Preseason best bet is UCF over 9.5 wins -113. While this definitely has plenty of risks involved the Knights are perfectly capable of winning two of four against Cincinnati, SMU, Biose State, and Louisville. Starting off the year at home against Boise State should be very telling, If they start off hot against a strong non-conference opponent then it’s gonna be really hard to slow them down.

Preseason Best Bet: Over 9.5 Wins -113

UCF Odds to win 2021 AAC Championship

Yes +450

While +450 is very intriguing for a team of UCF’s quality I’m personally going to pass. This team is setting up to be a legitimate dynasty but growing pains should be a recurring theme we see throughout the season. Building a competitive college football team is hard and doing it early on with a relatively new coaching staff may present some challenges along the way. UCF has an incredibly high ceiling with their offensive potential I just think it may take them a year or two to legitimately compete.

UCF Odds to Win 2021-22 College Football Playoff

Yes +15000

Even if UCF has an undefeated season it’s still gonna be incredibly hard to get a playoff bid. UCF is slowly clawing there way into the national spotlight but they’re just not there yet. If they have the impressive 10-2 season in expecting then they will most likely miss out on the playoffs. Love the talent on this team I’m just not convinced the committee wants anything to do with the Knights.

UCF 2021 Heisman Contenders & Odds

Dillon Gabriel +6600

The leader of the high-powered UCF ariel attack is undoubtedly one of the best quarterbacks in the nation. If Gabriel played for either Clemson or Ohio State there is a chance this number would be under +1000. Unfortunately for Gabriel, he won’t be getting the national media attention necessary to win this award despite the amazing talent he posses.
