Oregon Looking to Build on 4-Game Winning Streak vs. Arizona

by Jason Radowitz | Ducks Team Correspondent |
Thu, Oct 6th 8:02pm ET

If you like points, oddsmakers believe this will be the game to watch. The total between Arizona and Oregon is 70.5, with Oregon sitting at a 13.5-point favorite. The Ducks are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite, and the Over is 6-0 in Ducks' last 6 games as a favorite... View More

Betting Impact:

The Ducks have looked terrific on offense with Bo Nix in charge. However, the defense allowed 27 to Stanford and 41 to Washington State in their last two games. Meanwhile, Arizona has averaged 32.4 points per game this season. The Over looks like the play, even at the 70.5 number.

Clemson 20.5 Point Favorites vs. Boston College

by Jason Radowitz | Tigers Team Correspondent |
Thu, Oct 6th 7:59pm ET

The Clemson Tigers are playing how we all expected them to play last season. The Tigers are currently 5-0 and now 20.5-point favorites against a Boston College team that just got a win over Louisville last weekend. The total is at 48.5 for this game. The Tigers are 5-1 ATS in their last six conference games and are 4-1 ATS in their previous five road games... View More

Betting Impact:

Clemson's offense is much better than it was last year. It took a year to develop, but now they have it all under control. I've got Clemson winning this game by more than 21. The Tigers have played well on the road and continue to win against the spread in conference play. Everything checks out.

Georgia Looking to Rebound After Weak Performance vs. Missouri

by Jason Radowitz | Tigers Team Correspondent |
Thu, Oct 6th 7:56pm ET

The Georgia Bulldogs had to come from behind by multiple scores to get by the Missouri Tigers last week, winning the game just 26-22. Meanwhile, the Auburn Tigers lost a 17-point lead to LSU at home last week and forgot how to score for the final 40 minutes of the game. Oddsmakers expect Georgia to get off to a better start on Saturday as the Bulldogs are 29-point favorites. The Bulldogs are 1-5 ATS in their last six home games. Meanwhile. the Under is 6-0 in Bulldogs' previous six games in October... View More

Betting Impact:

The Auburn Tigers started red hot against LSU but ended up losing last week. Meanwhile, Georgia started off extremely slow but still ended up beating Missouri. As long as Georgia doesn't allow Auburn to go up 17 early, the Bulldogs will easily win this game. Still, 29 points seems like too many against a team like Auburn.

Stanford's Still Looking for First FBS Win in Over a Year

by Jason Radowitz | Cardinal Team Correspondent |
Thu, Oct 6th 7:51pm ET

The Stanford Cardinal hasn't won against an FBS opponent in over a year. They're now seven-point underdogs against Oregon State at home, with the total as high as 57.5 at a few places. The Cardinal are 0-7 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and the Over is 4-0 in Cardinal last four conference games... View More

Betting Impact:

Stanford has allowed many points in conference games dating back to last year. The offense hasn't done its part to stick around in those games. Stanford needs to play perfect football on both sides of the ball to beat a team like Oregon State. I don't see it happening.

Ohio State Buckeyes will be four touchdown favorites vs. Michigan State

by Jason Radowitz | Buckeyes Team Correspondent |
Thu, Oct 6th 7:47pm ET

The Michigan State Spartans are just 2-3 on the season with losses to Washington, Minnesota, and Maryland. Now they'll face (3) Ohio State. Against Ohio State, the Spartans are +27, with the total staying at 65. The Buckeyes are 5-0 ATS in their last five games after accumulating less than 170 yards passing in their previous game. Under is 4-0 in the Spartans' last four home games... View More

Betting Impact:

Expect the Ohio State Buckeyes to get back their passing game after relying primarily on their run game last week. The Spartans' offense has struggled and likely won't have much success in this game either.

Tennessee Will Get First Real Test on Saturday vs. LSU

by Jason Radowitz | Tigers Team Correspondent |
Thu, Oct 6th 7:43pm ET

The Vols have defeated Ball State, Pittsburgh, Akron, and Florida. Pittsburgh just lost to Georgia Tech, while Florida isn't having the hottest year. Therefore, the first real season test is on Saturday vs. LSU, on the road. Still, the Vols are 2.5-point favorites, with the total sitting at 65. The Tigers are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a home underdog. Also, the Over is 7-0 in Volunteers' last 7 games following a ATS loss... View More

Betting Impact:

Although this game is at 11am local time, it's going to be hard for any team to beat LSU in Death Valley. The Tigers could pull out the upset on Saturday.

NC State -3 Favorite vs. FSU on Saturday

by Jason Radowitz | Seminoles Team Correspondent |
Thu, Oct 6th 7:39pm ET

The Florida State Seminoles will be on the road Sunday, facing off against NC State. The NC State Wolfpack are currently 3-point favorites, with the total sitting at 50.5. The Seminoles are 4-0 ATS in their last four road games, while the Wolfpack are 7-0 ATS in their last seven games following a straight-up loss. Something's got to give... View More

Betting Impact:

Both of these offenses have been superb to start the year. But the edge goes to North Carolina State's defense. They've allowed just 280 yards per game and will be at home in a game that's expected to be close. The Wolfpack should get the win.

Final Betting Notes for Sun Devils/#6 Trojans

by | |
Sat, Oct 1st 9:22pm ET

Per Vegas Insider, 69% of bets are on USC (-25.5) tonight while 60% of the handle is on the Trojans as well. As for the total, 61% of the tickets are on the under (60.5) while 58% of the money is also on the under... View More

Betting Impact:

This is a pretty straightforward report - the betting public is all over USC to cover and they're also on the under. The question is whether Arizona State will be able to put up enough points to hang around in the game and contribute to the total. They're just 112th in scoring (17.0 ppg) and 103rd in yardage (324.3 ypg).

Betting Impact:

Tonight's total for Arizona State vs. USC sits at 60.5 points. Per the trends, the under may be in play. It's worth mentioning that Arizona State's offense ranks 112th in the country with 17.0 points per game.

Sat, Oct 1st 9:02pm ET

Per Oddsshark, USC is 9-2 straight up (SU) in their last 11 home games against Arizona State... View More

Betting Impact:

All things considered, there isn't much of a question of whether the Trojans (-10000) will win or not tonight. These teams are trending in opposite directions on top of the fact that USC has dominated at home in this series. Lincoln Riley's side is laying 25.5 points against their conference foe tonight.

Final Betting Notes for #18 Sooners/Horned Frogs

by | |
Sat, Oct 1st 10:47am ET

Per Vegas Insider, 59% of tickets are on the Sooners to cover (-5.5) while 60% of the money is backing the Horned Frogs. As for the total, everyone is expecting a shootout with 70% of bets on the over (69.5) while 58% of the handle is on the over as well... View More

Betting Impact:

As this number increased in favor of TCU, sharp bettors emerged and locked in the Horned Frogs plus the points. Maybe the thought process is that OU isn't going to be much of a threat in Brent Venables' first year at the helm. They dropped a shocker in Norman last week 41-34 to Kansas State and hit the road this weekend for a tough matchup against a proven TCU offense. This one has the potential to get dicey for the Sooners.

Per Vegas Insider, 52% of bets are on Michigan to cover while 65% of the money is backing the Hawkeyes +10.5. As for the total, 64% of wagers are on the under (44.5) while 68% of the handle is also taking the under... View More

Betting Impact:

There's a discrepancy amongst the betting public when it comes to the side in this game. This number opened at Michigan +4 and has catapulted to 10.5 points as we sit 90 minutes from kickoff. It makes sense that sharp bettors are taking the Hawkeyes plus the points considering the line moved through key numbers of 7.0 and 10.0.

Final Betting Notes for #7 Wildcats vs. #14 Rebels

Sat, Oct 1st 10:35am ET

Per Vegas Insider, 80% of bets are on Kentucky to cover (+6.5) while 67% of the money is backing the Wildcats as well. As for the total, 53% of the tickets are on the under (54.5) while 92% of the handle is also backing the under... View More

Betting Impact:

Both #7 Kentucky and #14 Ole Miss are 3-1 to the under this season and this total has dipped from the opening mark of 55.5 points. These numbers and the overall vibe of this game lead me to believe there is potential for a "trap game." Everyone thinks the under is the play with Kentucky and Ole Miss having fantastic defenses this year. Of course, we'll see how it plays out on the field, but I wouldn't be surprised one bit if it sneaks over the total.

#18 Sooners Profitable vs. Horned Frogs Lately

Sat, Oct 1st 10:24am ET

Oklahoma is 8-0 straight up (SU) over their last eight games and 6-1 against the spread (ATS) over their last seven games when playing TCU (per Oddsshark)... View More

Betting Impact:

It's been a profitable venture when backing the Sooners against the Horned Frogs over the last several years. Oklahoma has the potential to bounce back after a tough 41-34 home loss to Kansas State last week. They're laying as low as 5.0 points against TCU today. If you're not comfortable laying the points, OU -200 on the moneyline could be an option to bet as a single or add to a parlay.

Horned Frogs Awful ATS vs. Big 12 Recently

Sat, Oct 1st 10:18am ET

TCU is just 1-6 against the spread (ATS) over their last seven games against the Big 12 (per Oddsshark)... View More

Betting Impact:

TCU's getting as many as 6.0 points ahead of today's matchup with 18th-ranked Oklahoma. Perhaps today's the day they buck the trend and stay inside the number. This Oklahoma defense was gashed for 509 yards against Kansas State last weekend in their 41-34 upset loss in Norman. The Horned Frogs come into today's game at 17th in the country in scoring (40.0 ppg) and 32nd in yards per game (450.0 ypg).

#4 Wolverines Very Profitable ATS Since 2021

by | |
Sat, Oct 1st 10:11am ET

Michigan has gone 13-5 against the spread (ATS) over their last 18 games (per Oddsshark)... View More

Betting Impact:

A 72.2% cover rate is no small feat. Perhaps the spread numbers have been a bit off considering Jim Harbaugh had been (one of ) the laughing stock(s) of the B1G for the past few years and the betting public lost confidence in the program. However, Harbaugh's finally gotten his feet underneath him in Ann Arbor and this team has been excellent against the number. Michigan's laying 10.5 today on the road in Iowa City.

Hawkeyes Tough Opponent at Home

Per Oddsshark, the Iowa Hawkeyes are 11-2 straight up (SU) over their last 13 home games. They're also 5-1 SU in their last six home games against Michigan... View More

Betting Impact:

The Hawkeyes can be found as high as +335 on the moneyline today as they gear up to host the fourth-ranked Michigan Wolverines. They're also getting 10.5 points if you're not as confident in backing them to win outright. It should be mentioned that Iowa was pummeled by Michigan in last year's B1G Championship game 42-3 en route to the Wolverines' first CFP appearance.

Defense Travels - Especially For #7 Wildcats

by | |
Sat, Oct 1st 9:50am ET

Kentucky is 4-1 to the under in their last five games and 15-5 in their last 20 road games (per Oddsshark)... View More

Betting Impact:

The seventh-ranked Wildcats have been known for boasting stout defenses over the past half of a decade. Their defensive play has kept them competitive as they've traveled to some of the most hostile environments in college football. Last season, over six road games, Kentucky ranked 16th in defensive scoring on the road, giving up just 21.0 points per game. This year, they're 20th overall (17.3 opposing ppg) and 12th on the road (16.0 opposing ppg). Today's total with Ole Miss is set at 55.0 points.

Betting Impact:

If you're looking to play the under for Kentucky vs. Ole Miss, it can be found as high as 55.0 points. While you'd typically associate the Rebels with being an offensive team, it's worth noting that they're 3-1 to the under this year. Kentucky's also 3-1 to the under and they enter today's game with the 20th-ranked defense in the country (17.3 opposing ppg).

Betting Impact:

Typically this would mean that the betting public and bigger bettors are split on both the side and total for tonight's PAC-12 showdown in Pasadena. The sharps are rolling with the Bruins +2.5 and more money is also coming in on the under (65.0). Washington comes into this game 4-0 against the spread (ATS) while UCLA is 3-1.

Betting Impact:

The lowest that you'll find tonight's total for Washington vs. UCLA is 65.5 points. That doesn't seem unreachable as these offenses have been potent this season. The Huskies come in with the 13th-ranked offense in terms of scoring (41.3 ppg) while UCLA has the 14th-best offense (40.7 ppg). As for yardage, UCLA is racking up 516.0 ypg (7th) while Washington is right behind them with 502.0 ypg (10th).

Sun Devils/#6 Trojans Total Stays Below 9 TD's

by | |
Fri, Sep 30th 1:32pm ET

There hasn't been much movement from the opening O/U of 61.5 points for ASU vs. USC. It can be found as low as 60.0 points or as high as 61.5 as we sit about 33 hours from kickoff... View More

Betting Impact:

This total has seen a slight dip from the opening line of 61.5 points. That's likely due to Arizona State's lowly offense, which ranks 112th in the country in scoring (17.0 ppg). They'll have their work cut out for them against a USC defense that surprisingly ranks 25th in the country (18.3 opposing ppg).

Betting Impact:

This line move could be a result of the public losing faith in Arizona State along with them gaining respect for USC. While some experts were a bit hesitant to back the Trojans at the beginning of the year, Lincoln Riley's side has lived up to the hype - they're 4-0 straight up (SU) and 3-1 against the spread (ATS) to start the 2022 campaign.

Despite the loss, the betting public is backing Brent Venables and Oklahoma to bounce back this weekend as they take on an undefeated TCU team.

The Over/Under was originally set at 44.5 points for Saturday's game between #4 Michigan and Iowa. It's now dropped to 42.0 points as we sit about 24 hours prior to kickoff... View More

Betting Impact:

Bettors are expecting a lower-scoring affair this weekend in Iowa City. And that makes sense considering these are two of the toughest defenses in the country. Iowa ranks second in defensive scoring (6.7 opposing ppg) while Michigan enters this game at sixth (11.0 opposing ppg).

Iowa's going to have their work cut out for them this week as they bring in the 98th-ranked offense in terms of scoring (20.3 ppg).

Two of the country's top defenses meet up in Oxford this weekend and the betting public seems to be on the side of the under in this game. Ole Miss brings in the seventh-ranked defense (12.3 opposing ppg) while Kentucky ranks 21st in the country (17.3 opposing ppg).

Ole Miss enters this game with the 30th-best offense (35.0 ppg) and seventh-best defense (12.3 opposing ppg).

Meanwhile, North Carolina State has had its moments, with a 21-20 win over East Carolina earlier this season. Still, the Wolfpack also defeated Texas Tech earlier this year. The Clemson Tigers are 1-5 ATS in their last six games in October and the Over is 4-0 in Tigers last 4 games following a ATS loss... View More

Betting Impact:

Clemson's offense seems to be figuring things out. Meanwhile, the defense needs to get back into form. At home, Clemson's defense should improve in this game against NC State.

LSU Tigers Still 9-Point Favorites On The Road vs. Auburn

by Jason Radowitz | Tigers Team Correspondent |
Thu, Sep 29th 10:00pm ET

The LSU Tigers are on a three-game winning streak and will be a nine-point favorite against Auburn on the road. Meanwhile, Auburn is also 3-1 on the season but escaped against Missouri last week, in a game where Missouri had multiple chances to win the game and made crucial mistakes. The Auburn Tigers are 0-5 ATS in their last five home games... View More

Betting Impact:

Auburn will be without its center, while LSU will be without its left guard. Both teams will make adjustments but it's LSU that is trending in the right direction. Not Auburn.

Alabama 17.5-Point Favorite in SEC Top-25 Matchup

by Jason Radowitz | Crimson Tide Team Correspondent |
Thu, Sep 29th 9:57pm ET

The Alabama Crimson Tide are currently a 17.5-point favorites, on the road, against 20-ranked Arkansas. The total is sitting as high as 61 at some books. The Razorbacks lost a critical SEC matchup last week to Texas A&M, giving most of the public doubt that they'll be able to perform against Alabama. The Crimson Tide are 5-0 ATS in their last five games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in their previous game. Meanwhile, the Under is 5-0 in Crimson Tide last five vs. a team with a winning record... View More

Betting Impact:

Alabama has averaged 48.3 points per game but allowed only 7.3 points per game. However, Arkansas has built a squad capable of sticking with the top teams in the league this year. Don't be surprised in Arkansas puts up a fight against Alabama on Saturday.

Final Betting Notes for Aggies vs. #19 Cougars

by | |
Thu, Sep 29th 6:48pm ET

Per Vegas Insider, BYU is receiving 70% of the bets to cover the spread (-25.0) while 61% of the handle is on the Cougars. As for the total, 76% of tickets are on the under while a whopping 90% of the handle is coming in on the under (59.0)... View More

Betting Impact:

The betting public and the sharps are on the same side in this game. What stands out most is that a massive 90% of the handle is on the under. But, that makes sense considering Utah State ranks 104th in points per game (18.3) and 84th in yards per game (366.3). They may have a tough time moving that ball against a BYU defense that comes into tonight's game ranked 68th in defensive scoring (26.5 opposing ppg).

It's also worth mentioning that the weather in Provo, per Oddsshark, will be isolated thunderstorms with nine mph winds.

#19 Cougars Dominant at Home Recently

by | |
Thu, Sep 29th 6:23pm ET

Per Oddsshark, 19th-ranked BYU is 16-1 straight up (SU) over their last 17 games played at home. However, they've recently struggled against the spread (ATS), going just 2-5 ATS in their last seven games overall... View More

Betting Impact:

Barring some type of miracle for Utah State (+1400), BYU (-2000) should be able to come away victorious tonight in Provo. They rank better in both offensive scoring (33.3 ppg vs. 18.3 ppg) and defensive scoring (26.5 opposing ppg vs. 36.3 opposing ppg). The question then becomes whether they'll be able to cover the 24.0-point spread.

Betting Impact:

The betting public seems to be expecting a lower-scoring game tonight as the total has dropped by a few points. It may be tough sledding for Utah State, which currently ranks 104th in the country in scoring (18.3 ppg) and 84th in offensive yards (366.3 ypg).

Money Coming in on #19 Cougars

by | |
Thu, Sep 29th 6:05pm ET

BYU is set to host Utah State tonight and they opened as a 24.0-point favorite earlier in the week. They're now up to 25.5-point favorites at some sportsbooks... View More

Betting Impact:

Seeing that the spread has increased this week, it would likely signal that bettors are backing BYU to cover. The Cougars took care of business last week against Wyoming, but they failed to cover the 21.5-point spread. They moved to 2-2 against the spread (ATS) and they'll take on a Utah State team that is 0-4 ATS this year.

Betting Impact:

The Sun Devils are getting no love tonight as 89% of bets are on the visitors. Utah has gone 2-1 against the spread (ATS) this year while ASU is just 1-2.

Utes Profitable vs. Sun Devils Recently

Sat, Sep 24th 9:18pm ET

Utah is 6-2 against the spread (ATS) over their last eight games versus ASU (per Oddsshark)... View More

Betting Impact:

Backing the Utes against the Sun Devils has been a profitable venture over the past couple of seasons. However, you'll have to lay 15.5 points on the road tonight if you want to take a shot with 13th-ranked Utah. I don't think anyone would be surprised if Utah blew them out of the water tonight. On the flip side, with a new regime in charge in Tempe, it wouldn't be outlandish to see Arizona State come out with a new look and keep this one close.

Under May Be in Play Tonight in Tempe

Per Oddsshark, the under is 5-1 over the last six Arizona State games... View More

Betting Impact:

Tonight's total between the 13th-ranked Utes and Sun Devils sits at 54.5 points. There are a few different ways that you can look at this game; but one thing's for certain, ASU's offense has been a train wreck in recent history. The Sun Devils come into tonight's game ranked 100th in scoring at just 19.0 points per game. They'll face off against a Utah team ranked 32nd in defensive scoring (18.0 opposing ppg).

Last Minute Betting Notes for Cowboys/#19 Cougars

by | |
Sat, Sep 24th 9:07pm ET

Were just over an hour from kickoff in Provo as the BYU Cougars get set to host the Wyoming Cowboys. From a betting standpoint, 61% of the bets are on Wyoming to cover (+22.0) while 56% of the money is backing BYU. As for the O/U, 54% of bets and 94% of the handle are on the under... View More

Betting Impact:

BYU should easily win tonight's home contest with Wyoming. However, when it comes to covering the line, the sharps and the recreational bettors seem to be split. More bets are backing Wyoming while the total amount of money is on BYU. This seems like a natural reaction after the Cougars were dominated in Eugene last weekend. But this could easily be a big bounce back spot for them and I could see this one getting out of hand quickly.

Last Minute Betting Notes for #7 Trojans/Beavers

Sat, Sep 24th 8:59pm ET

Per Vegas Insider, USC is receiving 74% of bets and 57% of the handle to cover (-5.5) tonight in Corvallis. As for the total, 70% of wagers are on the over (70.5) while a 81% of the money is coming in on the under... View More

Betting Impact:

There's a huge disparity between the tickets on the over and the amount of money coming in on the under. Typically, this would mean the recreational bettors are pounding the over while the big players are backing the under. And right off the bat, I'd be thinking under with a total set north of ten touchdowns... But each of these offenses have proven they can score so far this year!

Per Vegas Insider, Ohio State is receiving 73% of the bets and 72% of the money to cover (-19.0) tonight. As for the total, it sits at 56.5 points and 67% of wagers and 52% of the handle are on the over... View More

Betting Impact:

There isn't much disparity with this betting report, but there are a couple of things worth mentioning. First, the total is just over a full eight touchdowns. If you're looking at the under, now would be a great time to lock it in as you'll cash your bet if it's exactly eight touchdowns (56 points) as opposed to a push. Additionally, the 15% difference between wagers and handle for the over is interesting. While more money is still on the over, it's not by much; meaning that there may be some bigger bettors coming in on the under tonight.

Per Oddsshark, the under is 5-1 over the last six games that USC has played on the road against Oregon State... View More

Betting Impact:

Although the PAC-12 is typically known for being an offensive-first league, the under could potentially be the play tonight. The Beavers come into tonight's game with the 52nd-ranked defense (24.5 opposing ppg) while the Trojans are 35th-best (19.7 opposing ppg). Can this frisky Oregon State defense outsmart and outwork Lincoln Riley at home tonight and keep it a low scoring game?

Per Oddsshark, Oregon State is 5-2 both straight up (SU) and against the spread (ATS) in their last seven games overall. They're also 7-0 ATS in their last seven home games... View More

Betting Impact:

The Beavers gear up to host seventh-ranked USC tonight in Corvallis and they're getting as many as 6.0 points. The trends say they have a shot to stay it inside the number. Oregon State has some of the tangibles of a potential upset being that they have an experienced QB in Chance Nolan and they boast the 37th-ranked offense with 34.5 points per game.

Badgers Struggle vs. #3 Buckeyes Lately

Sat, Sep 24th 5:56pm ET

Wisconsin heads to Columbus tonight and they've struggled mightily against Ohio State in recent history. They're 0-8 straight up (SU) in their last eight games against the Buckeyes and just 3-9 against the spread (ATS) in their last 12 against the B1G foe (per Oddsshark)... View More

Betting Impact:

OSU's offense is clicking out of the gate as they're currently ranked seventh in scoring (47.7 ppg). On the flip side, it feels like Wisconsin has not been able to put a competitive offense on the field in several years. However, if they can run the ball and burn clock, they may be able to stay inside of the 18.5 point spread tonight. But like it's stated above, history says they've failed to compete in this matchup lately.
