Ten Betting Tips: College Football Betting Bits To Watch For Week 11

After another great week of the college football betting season, we are back for Week 11, as we look at the top teams, players, and trends of note for the this week on NCAA football schedule.

All eyes are on Texas A&M Aggies QB Johnny Manziel this weekend. The Aggies are taking on the Alabama Crimson Tide, and many think that the man they call Johnny Football is going to be able to give the Tide a run for their money even though the game is going to be played in their house. It’s an interesting concept for sure, knowing that the Aggies are scoring 44.7 points per game and have dropped an average of 559.6 yards per game on the opposition this year, but that doesn’t mean that Alabama is going to end up just rolling over and dying. Manziel has impressive numbers this year, but the man that has the most impressive numbers in the whole country is actually…


Ten Betting Tips: College Football Betting Bits To Watch For Week 11
Jordan Lynch of the Northern Illinois Huskies. The Huskies are off this weekend, but Lynch has done remarkable things replacing QB Chandler Harnish this year. An average of 44.3 plays per game either involved in the arm or the legs of Lynch, and he does some tremendously special things with the football. He has 2,175 passing yards and 1,342 rushing yards. Nineteen scores have come through the air against just three picks, while 16 TDs have come on the ground. The scariest part? Lynch is just a junior, and he has another year in this wild offense against a MAC conference that is clearly all about the offense. There isn’t a team in the land that is more about its offense than the…

Baylor Bears, though. Advanced statistics show that the Bears have the most productive offense in the country. Of course, those same advanced stats suggest that Baylor has the least productive defense as well. The stats don’t lie for sure – Baylor games average 581.5 yards for the good guys and 527.2 yards for the bad guys. Those numbers are first and last in the nation respectively. The Bears have to go on the road this week to Norman to deal with the Oklahoma Sooners, and they are 21.5 point underdogs in the proceedings. That’s basically the same margin that the…

Notre Dame Fighting Irish are favored over against the Boston College Eagles. The Eagles are only catching 19, but they definitely have Notre Dame’s attention. Last year, they came to South Bend as even bigger underdogs and nearly pulled off the shocking upset. This is one of the many games this week in which teams that are contending for the National Championship are playing against teams that they should slaughter, but none have it easier than the…

Oregon Ducks should. The Quack Attack is taking its show on the road to San Fran to take on the Cal Golden Bears. The Ducks are averaging 561.2 yards and 54.3 points per game, and thanks to the five touchdowns that RB Kenjon Barner scored last week, he is on the path towards potentially winning the Heisman Trophy. Still, the bigger story might be Cal Head Coach Jeff Tedford, who has to know that he is a walking disaster waiting to happen. There aren’t many other coaches in America that know that they are getting fired, but Tedford is now one of them since the Golden Bears aren’t going to be qualifying for a bowl game. The only coach that is in a more laughable position might be…

Gene Chizik with the Auburn Tigers. This guy won a National Championship less than two years ago, and they can’t wait to boot him out of town. Of course, the fact of the matter is that someone very likely paid QB Cam Newton to come to the Tigers, and former OC Gus Malzahn was able to cover up a lot of the problems. But now that Malzahn and Newton are gone, all that’s left is a team that can’t run the ball, can’t pass the ball, can’t play good defense, and refuses to respect its coach. Yep, that’s the recipe for being fired, alright. Maybe matters will improve some with a win over the Georgia Bulldogs for Chizik. After all, we have to remember that it was just over a year ago that the Bulldogs faithful wanted to get rid of…

Mark Richt. Remember that? The Dawgs got off to an 0-2 start, and the alumni were clamoring for Richt to get canned. They rolled off 10 straight wins, made the SEC Championship Game, and are now the No. 5 team in America. The Bulldogs are 15 point favorites to win the SEC East for the second straight year, but if they do happen to lose this game to Auburn, no matter how much respect Richt has earned over the last year and a half, there is going to be clamoring again for sure. There’s no team that is rooting for the Tigers this weekend more than the…

Florida Gators, who are essentially playing Florida Deaf and Blind for the next two weeks before the showdown with the Florida State Seminoles the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Why does Florida care so much about lousy 2-7 Auburn? Because if the Tigers do happen to pull off the upset, the Gators will be moving up to the No. 5 team in America (maybe higher with more upsets!), they’ll have won the SEC East, and they might be in control of their own destiny for the BCS National Championship, too. If it sounds like there are eight million things that the Gators need to have happen to make it to the national title game, it’s because there are. At least they’re not in as bad of shape as the…

LSU Tigers are. The Bayou Bengals are laying two touchdowns to the Mississippi State Bulldogs this week, and that’s clearly going to be a “get better” game for sure. The Tigers have two losses after losing at home to the Alabama Crimson Tide last week, but at least they got some great play out of QB Zach Mettenberger and proved that their future is bright. The season isn’t done, though. Getting a loss by Florida, a loss by Georgia, and a loss by some of the other top teams in the land, and a two loss LSU team might be able to back into the title game as it did several years ago when no one wanted to win the National Championship. But hey, even if this season doesn’t finish according to plan for Head Coach Les Miles and company, at least the Tigers can say that they played the best defense of the year to date against both Alabama and against the great…

Johnny Manziel. Manziel only rushed for 27 yards that day against the Bayou Bengals, and he threw three picks without accounting for a total touchdown. That’s very unlike what we have gotten used to seeing out of Johnny Football, as he has thrown for 2,527 yards and rushed for 922 more this year, accounting for a very impressive 31 total touchdowns against just six INTs. In the SEC, those numbers are absolutely legitimate. That’s why there are so many that think this game on Saturday is the most dangerous of the season for the Crimson Tide.
