Clemson at North Carolina odds

Sept. 28, 2019

Clemson Tigers odds

The top-ranked Tigers have cruised through the first third of their schedule with three of their four wins coming by at least 35 points, even though quarterback Trevor Lawrence has yet to get his game into top gear. Lawrence has thrown five interceptions, one more than he had all of his freshman campaign in 2018. The Tigers did get good news when coach Dabo Swinney said that receiver Justyn Ross should be ready to go after missing last week’s win over Charlotte. Ross has 15 catches for 171 yards and a touchdown in three outings. The sophomore has averaged 19.1 yards a reception in his career.

North Carolina Tar Heels odds

After starting the season with wins over South Carolina and Miami, coach Mack Brown’s crew has dropped two close games to Wake Forest (24-18) and Appalachian State (34-31). Brown says the Tar Heels simply made plays to win at the end of the first two games but have “run out of time” in the last two. A blocked field goal attempt kept the Heels from sending the Appalachian State game into overtime. Freshman quarterback Sam Howell has completed 64.1 percent of his passes for 256 yards a game with only two interceptions against nine touchdown passes, even though the Heels have yielded 16 sacks.

Mississippi at Alabama odds

Sept. 28, 2019

Ole Miss Rebels odds

Coach Matt Luke isn’t sure who will start at quarterback as the Rebels go for their second SEC win. Matt Corral was sidelined with bruised ribs in last week’s loss to California and his availability may not be determined until kickoff Saturday afternoon. Either freshmen John Rhys Plumlee, who came up just short in rallying the Rebels to a potential tying touchdown in the 28-20 loss to the Bears, or Grant Tisdale could be in line for his first start. Ole Miss has lost the last three games to Alabama and been outscored 128-10 the last two after winning back-to-back meetings in 2014 and 2015.

Alabama Crimson Tide odds

The Crimson Tide has developed one of the most prolific passing games in the country (No. 3 in NCAA statistics, No. 2 in the SEC) behind quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and a fleet receiving corps that has the ability to turn short tosses into long gains. Tagovailoa has completed 77.7 percent of his passes (a school-record pace) with no interceptions in 112 attempts. Jerry Jeudy has averaged 101 yards a game receiving with six touchdowns, and Henry Ruggs III has an 81-yard reception among his four TD catches. Alabama has allowed only 30 points total in the first three quarters of its four wins.  

Trends

  • Alabama is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games when their opponent is averaging less than 200 rush yards per game 
  • The Over is 6-2 in the last 8 Ole Miss games when Ole Miss is averaging less than 350 pass yards per game 

Ohio State at Nebraska odds

Sept. 28, 2019

Ohio State Buckeyes odds

A new coach (Ryan Day) and new quarterback (Georgia transfer Justin Fields) hasn’t slowed the Ohio State juggernaut. The Bucks have steamrolled four opponents, with their last outing a 75-6 romp over Miami (Ohio) in which Fields engineered a six-touchdown outburst in the second quarter. The Bulldogs have outscored their opponents 214-36, with Fields completing 69.5 percent of his passes for 880 yards and 13 touchdowns. Running back J.K. Dobbins is rushing for an average of 119.2 yards per game (7.0 per carry). The Buckeyes are 1-1 in games played at Lincoln, winning 56-14 in 2017 and losing 24-27 in 2011.

Nebraska Cornhuskers odds

 Quarterback Adrian Martinez got off to a lackluster start to the season, passing for only 178 yards and rushing for just six in an unimpressive 35-21 win over South Alabama, but the sophomore has caught fire recently. Despite the 34-31 overtime loss to Colorado in the second game, Martinez has averaged 219 yards passing and 76 rushing in the last three. Receiver J.D. Spielman is coming off a seven-catch, 159-yard game in the comeback win over Illinois last week. Freshman receiver Wan’Dale Robinson is a dual threat with 17 catches for 195 yards and 27 rushes for 119.

Texas Tech at Oklahoma odds

Sept. 28, 2019

Texas Tech Red Raiders odds

Texas Tech is without starting quarterback Alan Bowman for several weeks with a shoulder injury suffered in the last game two weeks ago, and first-year coach Matt Wells says he will use Rice grad transfer Jackson Tyner and dual threat Jett Duffey, although it was unclear which one would start. Duffey played against the Sooners last season when Bowman exited in the first half, helping the Red Raiders give OU a 51-46 scare. But, even when Bowman was healthy this season, Texas Tech hasn’t been as explosive under Wells as in recent seasons under Kliff Kingsbury.

Oklahoma Sooners odds

The Oklahoma-Texas Tech matchup has averaged a total of 97 points in the past four seasons, and the Sooners should hold up their part of the bargain behind quarterback Jalen Hurts, who is averaging 417.7 yards of total offense, the second-best mark in the country. OU leads the country with 676.7 total yards per game through a 3-0 non-conference start. Oklahoma running back Trey Sermon ran for 206 yards and three touchdowns against the Red Raiders last season. He leads the running backs with 198 yards this season and is part of a backfield committee (including Hurts) that is averaging 8.3 yards per carry.

Mississippi State at Auburn odds

Sept. 28, 2019

Mississippi State Bulldogs odds

 Freshman quarterback Garrett Shrader could be in line for his second career start when the Bulldogs go for a second Southeastern Conference win. Shrader got his first last week when Penn State transfer Tommy Stevens was held out with a shoulder injury and passed for 180 yards in Mississippi State’s 28-13 victory over Kentucky. Stevens could be a game-day decision. Mississippi State running back Kylin Hill (551 rushing yards, five touchdowns) will be up against a Top 20 rush defense at Auburn, which has held opponents to just an average of just 89.5 yards per game. The Tigers gave up only 56 yards rushing in their win over Texas A&M last week.

Auburn Tigers odds

The Tigers have memories of their last encounter with Mississippi State, and they’re not good ones. The Bulldogs pinned a 23-9 defeat on the Tigers in Starkville, a setback that pretty much eliminated Auburn from the SEC West race for 2018. The Tigers then dropped a third conference game against an underdog Tennessee team the following week. The Tigers rushed for only 90 yards against the Bulldogs in their loss, but they seem have gotten in gear just in time for this one. Behind running back JaTarvious Whitlow (102 ypg), they have averaged 259.5 yards per game rushing in their 4-0 start.

Northwestern at Wisconsin odds

Sept. 28, 2019

Northwestern Wildcats odds

There was a lot of buzz about Clemson transfer Hunter Johnson in the offseason, but he and the Wildcats’ offense have struggled through a 1-2 start. He has completed only 33 of 68 passes for 308 yards, being intercepted four times while throwing only one touchdown. With a season-ending injury to senior QB T.J. Green, Johnson has to figure it out on the fly. The mismatch on paper here is clear: Northwestern is 121st out of 130 FBS teams in total offense (305.3 yards per game), while Wisconsin is No. 1 in the country in total defense (171.3 yards per game).

Wisconsin Badgers odds

Wisconsin rolled through South Florida, Central Michigan and then-No. 11 Michigan, not allowing a touchdown until the Wolverines scored with 3:05 left on the clock in the third quarter. The Badgers look to perfect the combination of stout defense, a power running game (Jonathan Taylor is averaging 146.7 rushing yards per game and is being mentioned among top Heisman candidates) and efficient passing. Taylor might be motivated to improve on his 2018 numbers against Northwestern — 11 carries, 46 yards in a 31-17 loss. Quarterback Jack Coan is providing balance to the offense, completing 58 of 75 throws with five TDs and no interceptions.

Towson at Florida odds

Sept. 28, 2019

Towson Tigers odds

Quarterback Tom Flacco, the brother of Denver Broncos quarterback Joe Flacco, leads a Tigers’ offense that has averaged 40 points a game. He has averaged 273 yards passing and threw for 305 in last week’s 52-45 loss to Villanova. A transfer from Rutgers who began his collegiate career at Western Michigan, Flacco also leads the team in rushing (227 yards) for a second straight season. He passed for a season-high 328 yards in the win over The Citadel in Towson’s opener. The Tigers are ranked 10th in the latest FCS poll, falling from No. 5 after the loss to Villanova. 

Florida Gators odds

With a crucial SEC game against Auburn coming up the next week, Florida might be excused for looking past Towson. The Gators’ second FCS opponent this season does offer Kyle Trask the opportunity to fine-tune his game for the Tigers. After replacing the injured Feleipe Franks a week earlier, Trask completed 20 of 28 passes for 293 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Gators’ 34-3 rout of Tennessee in the junior’s first career start. Linebackers David Reese (28 tackles), Ventrell Miller (16) and Louisville graduate transfer Jonathan Greenard (15 with a team-high 3.5 sacks) lead Florida’s defense. 

Trends

  • Florida is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games when their opponent is averaging less than 400 yards per game 
  • Florida is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games when their opponent averages less than 28 points per game 
  • Towson is 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games when they are averaging less than 250 pass yards per game 
  • Towson is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games when they have played less than 6 games on the season 
  • The Over is 6-1 in the last 7 Florida games when Florida passed for more than 200 yards in their last game 

 

Virginia at Notre Dame odds

Sept. 28, 2019

Virginia Cavaliers odds

Virginia has trailed in three of its four games but will take a 4-0 record into its game at Notre Dame. Quarterback Bryce Perkins has carried the offensive load, leading the Cavaliers in rushing (193 yards on 51 carries) as well as passing (nearly 211 yards a game). He has completed 65.3 percent of his attempts but also has been intercepted four times. He will be up against an Irish defense that has given up an average of only 157.3 yards a game passing (No. 17 nationally) but has looked susceptible against the run in allowing more than 204 yards a game (No. 110 of 130 FBS teams).

Notre Dame Fighting Irish odds

Notre Dame is looking for a bounce-back win after coming up short against Georgia, and coach Brian Kelly looks at this meeting as an opportunity for his players “to define who they are.” The loss to the Bulldogs puts the Irish on the fringe of the playoff picture but doesn’t eliminate them entirely. A loss to the Cavaliers most assuredly would do that. The combination of quarterback Ian Book (61.7 percent completion percentage, 828 yards with eight touchdowns and only two interceptions) and receiver Chase Claypool (15 receptions, 256 yards, two touchdowns) leads the Irish offense.

Penn State at Maryland odds

Sept. 27, 2019

Penn State Nittany Lions odds

Penn State coach James Franklin says he is happy to keep a four-man rotation in the backfield, which is led by Journey Brown, who is averaging 8.3 yards on 21 attempts. The deep ground game has been a nice balance to new starting quarterback Sean Clifford, who has yet to throw an interception in 75 pass attempts, and staying mistake-free will be key on the road. The team’s strength, though, is its defensive front, as the Nittany Lions are ninth nationally in run defense (70.7 yards per game). Linebacker Micah Parsons (20 tackles, four for loss) is a freakish talent.

The Terrapins will look to establish their running game, led by sophomore Anthony McFarland (225 yards, five touchdowns), while Javon Leake and Tayon Fleet-Davis each has at least 146 yards on the ground, although Jake Funk (173 yards) is out for the season with a torn ACL. Maryland will also be without starting right guard Terrance Davis (sprained knee) for 4-6 weeks.

Middle Tennessee at Iowa odds

Sept. 28, 2019

Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders odds

 Middle Tennessee has already tested itself against Power 5 conference foes this season — and not with good results. The Blue Raiders lost 40-21 to Michigan and 41-18 to Duke, and now they face Iowa, which is a more complete team than those other two. Sophomore quarterback Asher O’Hara should not be overlooked, however, as he has thrown for 785 yards with eight TDs and two interceptions in three games, also rushing for 202 yards. Middle Tennessee averages only 25:36 in time of possession, another area that will be a challenge this week against Iowa, which has possessed the ball for 36:11 on average.

Iowa Hawkeyes odds

Iowa did not allow more than 17 points in any of its first three games, and it has helped itself by turning over the ball only once while its defense has taken it away six times from the opposition. Senior quarterback Nate Stanley is a savvy veteran who has not been picked off this season while throwing for 689 yards and six touchdowns. He’ll face a Middle Tennessee defense that has stated its intent to blitz to pressure him, but the Hawkeyes can also rely on running back Mekhi Sargent (208 yards, 5.2 per carry). Iowa will be without offensive guard Kyler Schott (foot), but 2018 starter Cole Banwart, injured to start the season, will slide in.

Arizona State At Cal odds

Sept. 27, 2019

Arizona State Sun Devils odds

Arizona State allowed only seven points in each of its first three games but it took a step back last week against Colorado, the best offense the Sun Devils have seen. The Buffaloes won 34-31 as quarterback Steven Montez threw for 337 yards and was not sacked. Arizona State is hoping its offense continues to grow behind true freshman quarterback Jayden Daniels, a dual threat who twice has passed for more than 300 yards in a game. ASU is still waiting for a breakout from running back Eno Benjamin (292 rushing yards) after he had some preseason All-America love.

The Bears are one of the season’s early surprises, and that is because of their defense, led by linebacker Evan Weaver, who is having an All-American kind of season by leading the nation with 63 tackles. He posted 22 as Cal traveled to SEC country last week to knock off Ole Miss 28-20. Cal has not allowed more than 20 points in getting off to a 4-0 start. Meanwhile, the improvement of sophomore quarterback Chase Garbers has been another reason to think Cal’s success is sustainable, as he has passed for 835 yards with seven touchdowns and two interceptions while showing good athleticism with 133 rushing yards.

USC at Washington odds

Sept. 28, 2019

USC Trojans odds

As of Tuesday, quarterback Kedon Slovis had not been cleared to return to practice after leaving Friday night’s game against Utah after he suffered a head injury on USC’s second snap following a big hit. That likely leaves the job this week to Matt Fink, the preseason third-stringer who looked sharp in the win over the then-No. 10 Utes, completing 21 of 30 passes for 351 yards and three touchdowns. If Slovis is unable to play at all, walk-on safety Brandon Perdue will be the backup quarterback. Another injury that bears watching: safety Talanoa Hufanga, the team’s leading tackler (42), was in concussion protocol on Tuesday and also dealing with a shoulder injury.

Washington Huskies odds

Washington isn’t facing a full-on Air Raid attack like Washington State, but the Huskies have been able to handle the WSU version in recent years because of a great five-man secondary and ability to pressure the quarterback without blitzing. This game will be a good test to see if those things are still true in 2019. Quarterback Jacob Eason is coming off his best game — 24 of 28 for 290 yards and three touchdowns in a 45-19 win at BYU. Running back Salvon Ahmed missed the game because of a lower-body injury and was still questionable as of mid-week.

Washington State at Utah odds

Sept. 28, 2019

Washington State Cougars odds

Washington State is an interesting spot emotionally, blowing a 32-point third-quarter lead at home to UCLA, wasting a nine-touchdown passing performance from Anthony Gordon and losing by four points despite scoring 63. It might be a simple matter of cleaning up the turnovers, as six of them led to 29 UCLA points. Coach Mike Leach will be looking for his team to respond after calling out their toughness, but there’s not much issue with Gordon, who leads the nation’s top passing attack (499.5 yards per game). The Cougars have won the past four meetings against the Utes.

Utah Utes odds

Utah also is an interesting spot emotionally, surrendering the role as favorite in the Pac-12 South when it lost at USC last Friday night while potentially losing standout running back Zack Moss for this week. He exited with a shoulder injury, and coach Kyle Whittingham did not elaborate on his availability this week. Same was true for quarterback Tyler Huntley, who was limping at the end of the game. His backup is Jason Shelley, who started games as an injury replacement last season. But with Utah’s two best offensive players likely ailing, and the defense having allowed 368 passing yards to USC, this is a tricky matchup.

Rutgers at Michigan odds

Sept. 28, 2019

Rutgers Scarlet Knights odds

Rutgers’ offense is struggling along at 21.3 points per game — shutout by Iowa and managing only 16 last week against Boston College — and sophomore Artur Sitkowski is expected to get the call against for McLane Carter, who is still recovering from a concussion. Sitkowski threw 18 interceptions last season as a true freshman, although his play last week — 23 of 33 for 304 — was encouraging. All-purpose running back Raheem Blackshear is the top threat, as he twice has topped 100 receiving yards on nine catches in a game this season. 

Michigan Wolverines odds

The Wolverines want to erase the memory of last week’s non-competitive 35-14 loss at Wisconsin. The offense has yet to spring to life as many thought it would after the offseason addition of Josh Gattis as offensive coordinator. Quarterback Shea Patterson is completing just 55.6 percent of his passes, and he has lost four of his five fumbles. It’s probably not a week to count on much from freshman running back Zach Charbonnet, who was limited to two carries last week because of a reported knee injury and could rest up for bigger games.

  • Rutgers is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games when their opponent ran for less than 200 yards last game 
  • The Over is 5-1 in the last 6 Michigan games when Michigan has a winning percentage of less than .850 on the season 

UConn at UCF odds

Sept. 28, 2019

Connecticut Huskies odds

The Huskies are the definition of a struggling team, especially on offense. They have averaged only 16.7 points and 274 yards of offense a game, with their only win in three outings a 24-21 squeaker past Wagner, an FCS program. Quarterback Jack Zergiotis has yet to throw a touchdown pass but has tossed three interceptions. Running back Kevin Mensah has rushed for 204 yards but 144 of that came against Wagner. He has rushed for only two scores. Two of the team’s four interceptions have been returned for touchdowns. The Huskies have lost the last three meetings to UCF, the last two by a combined 105-41 score. 

UCF Knights odds

For the first time since 2016, the Knights are dealing with recovering from a regular-season loss, and coach Josh Heupel sees the possibility of two responses: a continued fall, or a “coming together as a football team.” It’s hard to envision the former with woeful UConn coming to town, but the Knights still have some things to work on. Though freshman quarterback Dillon Gabriel has gotten to an impressive start (63 of 104 passing for 1,057 yards and 11 touchdowns), this could be an opportunity to get last year’s backup, Darriel Mack Jr., back into the picture. He has been out with an ankle broken in July. 

Trends

  • UCF is 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games when they scored less than 42 points last game 
  • UCF is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games when they recorded less than 500 yards in their last game 
  • The Under is 5-0 in the last 5 UConn games when opponent’s winning percentage is more than .450 

Texas A&M At 

Arkansas vs. Texas A&M odds

Sept. 28, 2019

Arkansas Razorbacks odds

Quarterback Nick Starkel will be going up against his former team after leaving Texas A&M and enrolling at Arkansas in the summer. He also will be trying to make up for a five-interception performance in last week’s 31-24 home loss to San Jose State. Despite Starkel’s troubles, Mike Woods (four catches for 115 yards, including a 62-yard touchdown reception) and Trey Knox (8-83, one touchdown) had big games receiving. The Hogs gave up 503 yards to the visiting Spartans with 405 through the year, this against an offense that had averaged only 365 yards a game its first two outings.

Texas A&M Aggies odds

The Aggies will be going for their eighth consecutive victory against Arkansas in the series between old rivals from the now-defunct Southwest Conference. Last year’s 24-17 victory in coach Jimbo Fisher’s first taste of the rivalry gave the Aggies the longest winning streak in the series that dates back to 1903 and covers 75 meetings. The Aggies are coming off a loss to Auburn in their Southeastern Conference opener and have conference games against Alabama, Ole Miss, and Mississippi State coming up, so they are looking to get back on track here. They need to establish their running game after rushing for just 56 yards against Auburn.

Kansas State at Oklahoma State odds

Sept. 28, 2019

Kansas State Wildcats odds

The Wildcats are off to a 3-0 start under first-year coach Chris Klieman, whose early tenure has been highlighted by a win at Mississippi State. Quarterback Skyler Thompson has led the way by throwing for 486 yards on 36-of-53 passing with no interceptions. He has accounted for six touchdowns — four passing, two rushing. Potential trouble is that K-State’s competition doesn’t resemble anything like Oklahoma State’s offense. Mississippi State ran for 201 yards against the Wildcats, who now face the nation’s leading rusher, Chuba Hubbard (160.5 yards per game).

Oklahoma State Cowboys odds

Oklahoma State’s 36-30 loss to Texas last week was filled with missed opportunities, like being stopped inside the 5 on fourth-and-1, getting stuffed on a failed fake field goal and settling for two made field goals from just 20 and 27 yards. Clean up the red zone, and the Cowboys can win shootouts against most anybody. QB Spencer Sanders led OSU to 494 yards last week, but he wasn’t “clean” either, getting intercepted twice. He has loads of weapons, including Hubbard and All-American wide receiver Tylan Wallace, who has six TD receptions.

Indiana at Michigan State odds

Sept. 28, 2019

Indiana Hoosiers odds

Michael Penix Jr., who won the starting quarterback job in camp, has missed the past two games due to injury and is expected to be a game-time decision. The Hoosiers have a good fall-back option in Peyton Ramsey, the starter for all of last season, who helped lead the team to a 38-3 win against UConn last week. This matchup for the IU offense is more like the previous week, however, when the Hoosiers scraped together just 10 points against Ohio State. Also, senior left tackle Coy Cronk (a 40-game starter) suffered a season-ending leg injury last week.

Michigan State Spartans odds

Michigan State’s offense is hard to trust, even after a 31-10 win at Northwestern, which came a week after a 10-7 home loss to Arizona State. Consistency has been lacking on that side of the ball, but there are no questions about defense. Michigan State roars on that side of the ball, led by potential All-American linebacker Joe Bachie. The Spartans ranked fifth in the nation in total defense, allowing 228.3 yards per game, while they are tied for 10th in scoring defense (11.0 points per game). Michigan State has won nine of the past 10 meetings against Indiana.
