Navy vs Central Michigan Pick

Two teams that are hoping to find their way to a bowl game this year are going to meet at Kelly Shorts Stadium on Friday night for a standalone college football betting battle, as the Navy Midshipmen duke it out with the Central Michigan Chippewas.

The Middies have a couple wins over the course of their last three games, and the win over the Air Force Falcons was one of the biggest that they have had in quite some time.

Arizona State vs Colorado Pick

The Pac-12 will be on display on Thursday night in Boulder, where the Arizona State Sun Devils and the Colorado Buffaloes will match wits on the college football betting odds in this crucial tilt.

The Sun Devils are quietly a 4-1 team that is coming on strong. Their only loss was on the road to the Missouri Tigers, though that loss is definitely looking more and more suspect the more that we see ASU play.

Washington vs Oregon Pick

The Pac-12 will be showcased in the final NCAA football betting battle of the night on Saturday, when the Oregon Ducks play host to the Washington Huskies.

U-Dub is in the Top 25 in one of the two polls at this point, and it knows that a win, and it will be in the Top 20, and maybe even the Top 15 in both. Of course, this is a huge uphill battle playing at Autzen Stadium, especially knowing that a game hasn’t been won here in nine years.

Nebraska vs Ohio State Pick

Nebraska and Ohio State are both coming off big wins in their Big Ten openers. The Cornhuskers scored 20 straight points to come from behind to beat Wisconsin last Saturday night. Ohio State won Urban Meyer’s Big Ten debut in East Lansing in a defensive struggle 17-16. The Horseshoe will be rocking this Saturday night when these two meet in a battle of two of the Big Ten’s best.

Bo Pelini actually played football for Ohio State, so this game might mean a little more to him than an average game. Pelini’s Cornhuskers had a disappointing early season loss to UCLA,

Will either of the defenses show up for this one? It’s a battle of two teams who look like serious contenders in the highly competitive Big 12 Conference.

The West Virginia Mountaineers arguably have the most high-powered offense in the nation this year.

Both of these teams really need to get back on track in the PAC 12 Conference race. Which team will have the upper hand this Saturday afternoon?

Northwestern vs Penn State Pick

The Big Ten schedule continues for the Northwestern Wildcats, as they hope to keep their perfect season alive when they take on the Penn State Nittany Lions in college football betting action this Saturday.


The Wildcats are one of the two teams that are still unblemished in the Big Ten, and with a win on Saturday, they might be the only team left in the conference that still has a ranking in the Top 25 as well.
