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.

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.

Steve Spurrier’s team will likely be in contention for the SEC East crown this season. Let’s take a look at this interesting SEC matchup for Saturday afternoon.

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.

NCAA Football Free Pick: BYU @ Boise State

Two of the top mid-major teams in the nation are going to meet in what will surely be a BCS elimination game on ESPN’s Thursday Night College Football bettingfestivities, as the Boise State Broncos play host to the BYU Cougars.

We really thought that the Cougars would have been looking forward to this game, and we were right.

Kent State @ Buffalo College Football Pick

MAC rivals meet in what will be the first college football betting affair of the weekend, when the Kent State Golden Flashes take on the Buffalo Bulls at UB Stadium.

Kent State doesn’t have much in the way of high hopes this year for a bowl game, but if this is a game that is won, it would be a great start to the MAC season. The team hasn’t gotten much in the way of offense this year at just 338.0 yards per game, and that doesn’t seem to be changing any time in the near future for a club that routinely ranks in the bottom 50 in the nation in virtually every major offensive category.
