College Football Picks
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.
A pair of under-performing ACC teams go at it Saturday in what may be the best value bet on the board. Get Jay’s take on which way to bet this game as he has huge confidence in this pick.
The betting consensus is 59% with Texas yet the point spread is going up in Oklahoma’s favor. This indicates sharp/wiseguy action and for good reason. The Sooners will move the ball easily on the Horns Saturday. Check out Keith’s full take on this Big 12 matchup!
They Hawaii Rainbow Warriors are much improved on both sides of the ball this season, but will they have what it takes to win on the mainland against a strong Boise St. club on the blue turf? Loot has the cover!
Same story, different weekend! The Crimson Tide of Alabama are sure to win straight up, but will they cover? Nick Saban and Tua Tagovailoa are so good at what they do, it’s a very difficult proposition to consider betting against the Tide.
Excluding a blowout win over the Rams the Buffaloes have played everyone tight losing by a score or less in both losses. The Ducks are a big step up but are they a 20.5 point step up? Get Loot’s take on the game and who he believes is the point spread play here.
The Virginia Cavaliers take on the Miami Hurricanes at Hard Rock Stadium on Friday in an ACC matchup. The Cavaliers are looking good at 4-1, ranked, and coming off a break. However, in their last game before the week off, they lost their only game of the season to Notre Dame, 35-20. They look to get right this week against a Miami team they beat last season. The Hurricanes lost last week to Virginia Tech, 42-35. At 2-3 overall on the season, they are looking to make the mark in conference play after an 0-2 start. Who can notch the cover at Hard Rock?
In ACC early Week 7 action, the Orange visit the Wolfpack. Both teams are 3-2 on the season with neither club beating a quality opponent. The result of this game may hinge on Syracuse’s ability to stop the run, something that have struggled with all season. Read on to get Dan’s take and point spread prediction.
Appalachian State Mountaineers (4-0) at Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns (4-1) When: Wednesday, October 9, 8 p.m. EDT Where: Cajun Field, Lafayette, La. TV: ESPN2 Point Spread: UL -1.5 (WagerWeb) Total: O/U 69 Outlook For Week 7 Both of these teams had a bye last week, so this...
The Gamecocks head to Georgia to take on the almighty Dawgs who’ve been steamrolling inferior competition. Bettors will have to lay a big number with Georgia a -24.5 favorite on the point spread line. Read on to get Jay’s prediction.
Wisconsin was a little flat last week against Northwestern after their 35-14 beat-down of Michigan in their previous game. It would be logical to expect a more spirited display this week against an overmatched Kent State team. The Golden Flashes have had an extra week off to prepare but this team has already proven that they can’t stop the run against the top rung running teams allowing 467 yards on the ground to Auburn.
Strength of schedule is always an important variable to take into consideration when betting college football games. The Quack Attack of Oregon is a good football squad, but who have they played? Another important variable to take into consideration in NCAA football wagering are “key numbers”. These are common final score margins. The number 17 is one of the most common margins and as you can see by this Week 6 point spread, the bookies have conveniently built in a nice cushion for themselves with the +18. It’s Cal or nothing here.
Michigan State has already suffered a loss on the season and were all out to beat Indiana last week. Ohio State has been destroying teams and last week’s 48-7 defeat of Nebraska was ultra-impressive. The biggest question in this game is not who will win, it is by how much. Can the Buckeyes cover this 19.5 point spread line?
The Gators are 5-0 this season, but who have they beaten? In their opener, they beat a mediocre Miami team by four and they beat SEC rival Kentucky by eight but were trailing deep into the fourth before rallying with two late TDs. Auburn is also unbeaten in five matches but not one of their opponents has a losing record on the season. Get Dan’s prediction.
The Hawkeyes are undefeated, and they give the appearance of a team getting stronger each week. The Wolverines got back on track with a 52-0 slaughter of Rutgers after being embarrassed by the Badgers 35-14. Michigan can resurrect their season with a victory on Saturday but laying the -3.5 may not be prudent against a top level opponent.
