College Football Picks
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.
The early season is certainly not something the Vols want to dwell on losing all three FBS games and picking up their only win over FCS Chattanooga. There first SEC test came last week and it was dismal falling 34-3 to the Gators on the road. They now meet a rested opponent coming off a tough game which should have them fully focused. This may get ugly. Frank’s weighs out the big line and gives out his value play.
The Sooners have destroyed all four opponents this season outscoring the opposition 222-75 with an average margin of victory being 37 points. This week’s line has Oklahoma as a -34.5 point favorite with a total line of 67. Can Kansas stay within that spread? Get Dan’s betting analysis & prediction.
The Pac 12 has turned into quite the wonky conference over the past few years where literally anything can happen on any given night (except for in this case). The pass-happy Huskies are absolutely going to destroy a Stanford team that has the worst secondary in the conference and who barely beat the pathetic Oregon State Beavers last week. The bookies are trying to bait bettors with a nice hook at +14.5, but it’s not enough to warrant investing your money.
A whopping 72% are wagering on the University of Central Florida Friday night at Cincinnati and the line has moved a measly half point. This should tell you something! Cinci is a LIVE DOG here! A GOOD college football team playing in a BIG game at home in a featured spot. Upset alert!
In a game most wouldn’t usually bet, all eyes will be seeking value and betting on these two turds Friday night as they’ll be the late college football game on CBSSN. One edge in play is that home field advantage and travel carry more value in NCAA football with regards to winning games and beating spreads. In this case, the Lobos were in Virginia last week and now have to travel to California. New Mexico has been outscored by 29 points per game in their two road contests this season.
