College Football Picks
The Bookmakers continue to undervalue a Boise State Broncos team that remains undefeated. BYU is usually a tough place to go into and steal a win, but this ain’t your Daddy’s Cougar team! Loot gives his prediction and analysis on this somewhat confusing matchup.
College football lines of -32 or more are generally a 30% proposition to cover the spread. While you’ll get smoked long term siding with the short end of that stick, teams do indeed over as big favs 3/10 times. The Vols are SO bad, we’re going to spit in the face of the gambling gods and predict that Bama covers this before the fourth quarter even starts!
If this isn’t the fishy point spread of the week, I don’t know what is! This is a major trap game for the Quack Attack of Oregon, however, I can’t get past the Huskies losing by 10 at home to Cal and losing by 10 at Stanford. Washington is a plus team, but very inconsistent. The Ducks have beaten up some creampuffs and spent the majority of their season at Autzen Stadium, one of the best home field advantages in college football. The best bet on this game is to pass, but Loot gives prediction with analysis anyway!
Here the key stat for this game. The Badgers lead the nation in yards allowed compared to their opponent’s average gained. Illinois ranks 118th in the FBS for the same metric. We do have a huge spread to take in consideration Wisc -31, but keep in mind that Wisconsin has shutout four of its six opponents.
Colorado Buffaloes (3-3 SU, 3-3 ATS) at Washington State Cougars (3-3 SU, 1-5 ATS) College Football Week 8 Date and Time: Saturday, October 19, 2019, 7:00 PM EST Where: Martin Stadium, Pullman, WA. TV: ESPNU Point Spread: COL +13 /WSU -13 (BetNow) Over/Under Total:...
The LSU Tigers have sparkled early on and at the windows as well with a 4-1-1 ATS record. Mississippi State has been underwhelming at best, recently dropping a game to the putrid Tennessee Vols. Can MSU pull off a bounce-back and avoid dropping their third straight game?
Bug meets windshield in Oklahoma Saturday as the WVU Mountaineers bring their horrible defense to Norman. But wait! The books are licking their chops as they’re forcing Sooner backers to lay a nasty -33.5 points, which is in 33% cover territory! Don’t get hooked into making a sucker bet!
We’re expecting a low scoring affair at Beaver Stadium Saturday with points coming at a premium. Seeing an opening line of PSU being only a -9 favorite may have caused whiplash from doing a double-take in more than a few necks, however, there’s actually pretty good betting value with Big Blue in this Week 8 NCAA football clash!
Emerging offenses meet up in Louisville in a game where the total has more wagering value than the point spread. Clemson should have no problem tearing up the Cardinals wet-paper-bag defense. The Cards should be able to put some points on the board as well. Get Jay’s prediction before taking a side on this one!
The general betting public is biting hard on the undefeated OSU Buckeyes as massive 28 point road favorites. At 5-0 against the spread and being the featured game on a Friday night, would it be prudent for bookies to allow bettors to crush them with a mega-public play? No! The fact is, Northwestern doesn’t get blown out often and will be super motivated to give Ohio State all they can handle. The pick here is NW or pass. Get Dan’s full take here!
The Stanford Cardinal sure aren’t getting any respect after beating up the Washington Huskies. Are the bookies expecting a letdown vs. the lowly UCLA Bruins or do they believe that the public will be slow to react to the possibility that Stanford may be gaining steam?
Troy is a large -14.5 point spread favorite over South Alabama which is telling us that the sportsbooks hung that extra half point on the line to draw in bets on the Jaguars. USA has covered two straight, including a close loss in their latest against a decent GASO team.
The Gators didn’t get much respect from the bettors last week when they showed the Auburn Tigers that their defense is for real. This week the oddsmaker is showing them much respect making the Boys from the Bayou a -13.5 favorite. NCAA Football handicapper likes the chalk here. Find out why.
The Penn St. Nittany Lions have had Iowa’s number winning the last three in this matchup, albeit two of those games were by less than a touchdown. Dan is forecasting another close content Saturday. See his point spread prediction here!
WSU has dropped two in a row and will look to rebound on the road in Tempe on Saturday against ASU. The Sun Devils have only one loss this season and that came by three at home to the Buffaloes in a huge letdown spot after upsetting the Michigan State on the road. A slight home dog sure looks like value in this match.
Saturday Week 7 college football action has USC visiting Notre Dame in a primetime match-up. The Irish lead the all-time series with a record of 48-37-5 and are 3-2 straight up in the last five but are 2-3 versus the betting line. The spread is large ND -11, but Trojans have some injury concerns. Read on to see how Mike M is betting this game.
