Utah State vs BYU Pick

The BYU Cougars and the Utah State Aggies fight it out on Friday night in the second game of a college football betting doubleheader on ESPN, as these two clash for Beehive State supremacy.

You have to go back to 1974 to find the last time that the Aggies were able to beat both the Cougars and the Utah Utes in the same season. There has been a heck of a lot of frustration in the interim, but now is the opportunity for Utah State to shine.

Pittsburgh vs Syracuse Pick

The Big East will be on display on Friday night at the Carrier Dome, where the NCAA football odds will be contested between the Syracuse Orange and the Pittsburgh Panthers.

Have the Panthers righted the ship? That’s the biggest question right now in Steeltown, and it is certainly one that is up for debate. Pittsburgh has won its last two games, but there is a real question as to whether those wins against Gardner Webb and Virginia Tech were really good enough to get this team going for the rest of the campaign.

USC vs Utah Pick

Week 6 of the college football betting season starts on Thursday night, and the showcase game of a big time three-pack pits the Southern Cal Trojans against the Utah Utes at Rice Eccles Stadium.

With names like QB Matt Barkley, RB Silas Redd, RB Curtis McNeal, WR Marqise Lee, and WR Robert Woods, the Trojans really shouldn’t be struggling offensively at all.

Ten Betting Tips: College Football Betting Bits To Watch For Week 6

After another great week of the college football betting season, we are back for Week 6, as we look at the top teams, players, and trends of note for the this week on NCAA football schedule.

There is a new clear cut favorite on the odds to win the Heisman Trophy this year, and that man is QB Geno Smith for the West Virginia Mountaineers. Smith threw for a whopping 656 yards and eight scores in last week’s win over the Baylor Bears. Now, he has his biggest challenge of the year to date, and maybe his biggest challenge period.

Wisconsin vs Nebraska Pick

Big Ten foes that very well could be playing in the conference title game this year will meet for the second time ever and the first in Lincoln on Saturday night, where the Nebraska Cornhuskers will take on the Wisconsin Badgers.

The truth of the matter is that the season starts right now for the Badgers. All that we learned in the first month of the year about Wisky is that it just isn’t all that great.

Ten Betting Tips: College Football Betting Bits To Watch For Week 5

After another great week of the college football betting season, we are back for Week 5, as we look at the top teams, players, and trends of note for the this week on NCAA football schedule.

There are certainly a bunch of teams that are on upset alert this week, but none might be in more trouble this week than the Florida State Seminoles. Not only are the Noles coming off of their biggest win in years over the Clemson Tigers, but they are also playing against a South Florida Bulls outlet that is hungry for a victory and has clearly been looking ahead to this game for the last several weeks.

Stanford vs Washington Pick

The Stanford Cardinal will be back on the field for the first time since upsetting the USC Trojans on Thursday night in NCAA football betting action when they take on the Washington Huskies at CenturyLink Field.

The Cardinal are ranked in the Top 10 in the country, but there aren’t many that really believe that they are amongst one of the best 10 teams in the land. The truth of the matter is that the Pac-12 is pretty solid this year, but outside of the Oregon Ducks, there might not be any truly superior teams, and that includes USC.

Arizona @ Oregon College Football Pick

Two of the top teams in the Pac-12 this year meet in college football betting action on Saturday night at Autzen Stadium, where the Oregon Ducks take on the Arizona Wildcats.

Arizona hasn’t exactly come out of nowhere this year, but it is really a surprise that the team is 3-0 this year. Of course, the Wildcats have only won one game that they were really supposed to lose, that being the game against the Oklahoma State Cowboys, and aside from that, there hasn’t been all that much to talk about.

Vanderbilt @ Georgia College Football Pick

Sanford Stadium will be the site of a Week 4 college football betting showdown between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Vanderbilt Commodores, which will be shown on the Deuce.

The Dores have just one win so far this year, and one look further down their schedule suggests that they are going to have a heck of a time just getting to a bowl game once again. A game like this would have to be won from time to time to even think about playing in the postseason, and it just might not happen that way.
