Texas vs Oklahoma State Pick

The early advantage in the Big XII will be handed out on Saturday night at Boone Pickens Stadium, where the college football odds will be contested between the Oklahoma State Cowboys and the Texas Longhorns.

The Horns have been awesome all year long, but this is really going to be their first massive test. Head Coach Mack Brown will be quick to point out the fact that the Ole Miss Rebels team that his squad blew out two weeks ago is a 3-1 team and the Wyoming Cowboys that his team beat to start the year did win eight games in 2011.

Hawaii vs. BYU Picks

Teams that have the ability to score points in bunches are going to be duking it out on Friday night in NCAA football betting action, as the BYU Cougars take on the Hawaii Warriors at Lavell Edwards Stadium.

The Warriors have had a frustrating season, and matters just don’t seem to be getting any better any time in the near future. They aren’t nearly the offense juggernauts that they once were, and they are still struggling defensively.

NCAA Football Betting: College Football Matchups for Week 5

Here at Bang the Book, we have all of the top matchups of the 2012 NCAA football betting campaign covered! Today, we’re taking a look at the best matchups for Week 5!


Head Coach Hugh Freeze is one of the up and coming coaches in college football, and he would love to put together a great effort here in Tuscaloosa to bring some notoriety to his Ole Miss program. That being said, this is still going to be a huge mountain to climb, knowing that Alabama hasn’t let its foot off of the gas pedal against either of the big time foes that it has faced this year.

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.

NCAA Football Betting: College Football Matchups for Week 4

Here at Bang the Book, we have all of the top matchups of the 2012 NCAA football betting campaign covered! Today, we’re taking a look at the best matchups for Week 4!

Florida Atlantic has to know that it is worth nothing more than a paycheck and a beat down in this one. Whatever Alabama wants the final score to be, it will be just that. The Tide haven’t allowed a single point in over 120 minutes of football, and we would guess that the Owls would be lucky to score once, let alone enough times to keep up with an offense that is going to drop at least 30 points on likely every team that it faces this year.

LSU vs Auburn Pick

A pair of Tiger teams are going to be meeting up in a classic SEC West showdown that will surely have National Championship implications, as the Auburn Tigers host the LSU Tigers.

The Bayou Bengals are clearly the best of the Tigers in the SEC this year, and that should show on Saturday night at Jordan Hare Stadium. Yes, this is the first road game for QB Zach Mettenberger, but it isn’t the first road game for so many of these experienced defenders, who are clearly amongst the best in the nation.

Oregon State vs UCLA Pick

The Pac-12 is going to have a heck of a lot of publicity this week, and the first of the big time clashes on the gridiron on the NCAA football odds pits the Oregon State Beavers against the UCLA Bruins.

We really don’t know a whole heck of a lot about the Beavers yet this year. They have beaten the Wisconsin Badgers at home in a game in which the Reser Stadium faithful stormed the field, but all of a sudden, virtually everyone looks like they can beat the Badgers.

Free College Football Pick: Baylor @ Louisiana Monroe

One of the new sweethearts of the NCAA football betting world, the Louisiana Monroe Warhawks are going to be out for another scalp on Friday night on national television, when they take on the Baylor Bears in a rare home game against a major conference foe.

Just a few weeks ago, this looked like it would be a slam dunk game for the Bears. Now, we’re not all that sure that that’s the case. Remember that Baylor struggled last week against the Sam Houston State Bearkats, falling behind 20-10 at halftime before turning on the jets and coasting to a second half victory.
