College Football Betting Strategies Week 11: Bowl Run and Bad Coaches

The college football season is winding down and unlike other professional sports there is no playoff system, well at least not yet. Without a playoff system the college football teams that want to play longer have to hope for a bowl bid.

In order to get into a bowl game a team must become bowl eligible by getting a certain amount of wins. The bowl run goes hand-in hand with the run to win a division or conference to get into a big conference championship game.

Ball State vs. Toledo Picks

Two of the top teams in the MAC are going to be involved in a great Tuesday night college football betting battle this week when the Ball State Cardinals take on the Toledo Rockets.

The MAC has a history of just not getting all that many teams in bowl games. This year is going to be an exception to that thanks to the fact that North Carolina, Ohio State, and Penn State are all ineligible for bowl games, but there will still be at least one,

Arizona State vs. Oregon State Pick

Reser Stadium will be backing its Oregon State Beavers on Saturday night in college football betting action against the Arizona State Sun Devils.

The Sun Devils may turn into the beneficiaries of the USC Trojans’ bad fortune. They are one of the three teams in the Pac-12 South that probably essentially control their own destiny for getting into the Pac-12 Championship Game, though there is clearly still a lot of football to be played. Win this game, and even a loss to the Men of Troy might not prove to be damning when the two teams meet in LA in a few weeks.

Oklahoma State vs. Kansas State Picks

The Kansas State Wildcats look to take one more step towards the BCS National Championship Game on Saturday night in college football betting action at home against the Oklahoma State Cowboys.

The Cowboys were in the spot of the Wildcats last year, as they were ranked No. 2 in the nation for a good chunk of the time in the BCS Rankings before getting bounced in a game not all that much different from this one.

Alabama vs. LSU Picks

Last year, it was the “Game of the Century” the first time around when the LSU Tigers beat the Alabama Crimson Tide. The second time around, the game had all of the pomp and circumstance surrounding one of the biggest showdowns ever, but the 21-0 blowout was never really all that close. Now, it’s Round 3 over the course of the last 12 months for these two teams, and the action for college football betting fans is as good as it will ever be on Saturday.

Oregon vs. USC Picks

The Oregon Ducks and the USC Trojans are going to battle it out for supremacy in the Pac-12 on Saturday night in a game with local and national implications to it.

We’ll start with the Ducks, who have to wonder what they have done to deserve this. Every week for the last three weeks, they have fallen behind another BCS contender, and now, they are fourth in the BCS and know that they need at least two teams to lose in front of them in all likelihood to have a shot of traveling to Miami to play for the BCS National Championship in January.

Ten Betting Tips: College Football Betting Bits To Watch For Week 10

After another great week of the college football betting season, we are back for Week 10, as we look at the top teams, players, and trends of note for the this week on NCAA football schedule.

The argument could be made that this is the biggest Saturday of college football betting action in quite some time, and the team that is in the center of it all is the Alabama Crimson Tide. The Tide just continue to roll over all of their foes, and this is the only time this year that they are going to be a single digit favorite until perhaps the SEC Championship Game, and more likely the National Championship Game or whatever bowl game they end up at.
