Week 0 of the college football season is just hours away, and both DraftKings and FanDuel have brought back college football DFS for 2019.
The action starts tonight at 7:00 p.m. ET with two FBS games on either site:
- Miami vs. Florida (-7), Over/Under: 46.5 – 7 pm ET
- Arizona (-11) at Hawaii, Over/Under: 73.5 – 10:30 pm ET
Khalil Tate (Arizona): $9,000 DraftKings, $10,100 FanDuel
It’s easy to forget that Tate was the clear betting favorite for last season’s Heisman Trophy as early as January 2018, after rushing for 1,353 yards on 133 carries during his 2017 sophomore campaign. Playing through multiple injuries in 2018 (sprained ankle, injured throwing shoulder, turf toe), sapped his rushing ability, but Tate’s passing efficiency was solid — ranking 18th amongst 162 qualifying FBS quarterbacks (min. 100 attempts) in Independent Quarterback Rating (IQR).
In 2018, Hawaii’s defense ranked 107th out of 130 qualifying teams in QBR allowed and also ranked as a bottom-20 defense in yards per rushing attempt, yards after contact per attempt and broken tackle rate. A healthy Tate could run wild in Honolulu.
