Virginia at West Virginia -4 O/U 134.5
Recommendation: Under

The personnel may be slightly different but stylistically, this year's West Virginia and Virginia squads are the same as they've always been under their respective head coaches. Under Bob Huggins, the Mountaineers are once again turning games into chaos by pressing and attempting to force turnovers. Virginia meanwhile continues to grind and not get baited into any sort of up-and-down affair. Two years ago, with a closing total of 135, both teams met at Madison Square Garden with the Cavaliers winning 70-54. The Mountaineers managed 36 points in the first half but were held to only 18 after the break. The game was actually more to WVU's liking with 65 possessions, 41 combined free throws, and 37 combined turnovers. Despite that, it still went well under the total. Last year, West Virginia returned the favor with a 66-57 win in Charlottesville. That game features only 61 possessions and went under the closing total of 128.5. Tonight's matchup opened 131.5 and was bet up to 134.5. At some point, it will get bet under. Bob Huggins had this to say about facing UVA, "A lot gets Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Air Force Falcons at Colorado State Rams

Air Force at Colorado State
Saturday, Noon PT - CBSC
CRIS Opener: Colorado State -11.5 O/U 68
CRIS Current: Colorado State -10.5 O/U 67.5
Recommendation: Colorado State

There aren't a lot of instances where during a season a team is asked to play four road games in fives weeks but that's what Air Force is tasked with as it heads to Ft. Collins to face Colorado State. And not only have the Falcons spent the better part of the last month playing on the road, nearly every contest was an absolute barnburner. Back in Week 6, Air Force fell behind 31-10 at rival Navy only to take the lead, 45-41 late in the fourth. The Midshipmen scored the game winning touchdown with 15 seconds remaining. The following week, in an obvious letdown spot, Air Force trailed UNLV 27-0 only to rally back for an improbable 34-30 win. And last week, the Falcons kicked a game winning field goal with no time on the clock in a high scoring 45-42 win over Nevada. The travel, the emotion, the physical toll...it's bound to catch up with this squad at some point.

College Football Betting Preview: Texas Tech Red Raiders at West Virginia Mountaineers

Texas Tech at West Virginia
Saturday, 9 am PT - ESPNU
CRIS Opener: West Virginia -6 O/U 80
CRIS Current: West Virginia -3.5 O/U 72
Recommendation: Over

West Virginia's offense has had no trouble moving the football this season. Yes, they benefitted from a three-game swatch of East Carolina, Delaware State, and Kansas but they also faced Virginia Tech and TCU away from home. Against the Hokies, WVU rolled up 592 yards and topped the 500-yard mark against the Horned Frogs as well. The Mountaineers ran into some difficulty in the red zone which resulted in only 48 points combined in both contests but the yardage was actually conducive to around 75 points.

Through five games, Texas Tech's defense has actually been somewhat of a strength as it has allowed a modest 5.5 yards per play. But those numbers are buoyed by games against FCS Eastern Washington, Houston, and Kansas. Arizona State hung 45 on the Red Raiders and Oklahoma State just missed the 600-yard mark in its 41-34 win. West Virginia is also the most balanced team Tech has faced and the only squad to rank Read more

San Jose State at Hawaii
Saturday, 9 pm PT
CRIS Opener: Hawaii -18 O/U 61
CRIS Current: Hawaii -17 O/U 61
Recommendation: Hawaii

If there's a team ever in need of a bye week, it's the San Jose State Spartans. San Jose State has played seven straight games and finally gets a break after this week's trip to Hawaii. The schedule at times has been daunting but the Spartans did open Mountain West play against three average to below average squads with two of those contests at home. They failed to put up much of a fight in any of the three. Against Utah State, SJSU was outgained by 428 yards. They allowed over 8 yards per play in a 41-13 loss to UNLV. And last week were held to 205 yards in a 27-10 home loss to Fresno State. The Spartans, who are trying to play up-tempo football, have turned the ball over 24 times and have a -9 turnover margin over their last three contests. With a bye week looming, they must first travel to face Hawaii, a team they lost to a home last season, 34-17. It’s a scenario where we could very easily see the Spartans “pack it in” Read more

Texas Tech at Kansas
Saturday, 9 am PT - FS-1
CRIS Opener: Texas Tech -17 O/U 77
CRIS Current: Texas Tech -16 O/U 79
Recommendation: Kansas

Two weeks ago, Kansas played arguably its best game of the season. Trailing early to West Virginia, the Jayhawks battled back and were within one score midway through the fourth quarter before two turnovers let to two Mountaineer scores and a somewhat deceiving 56-34 final. Kansas still covered the number (+23.5) giving them five straight Big XII pointspread wins dating back to last season but I'm far more interested in what they were able to do on the ground. There was a lot of preseason talk about Kansas going to more of an "Air Raid" style offense but they simply don't have to personnel, particularly at the quarterback position, to chuck the ball around 50 times a game and have success. Against WVU, Kansas ran the ball 50 times and finished with 367 yards on 7.3 ypc. This against a team that coming in was allowing 4.4 ypc. Don't expect that type of success on a weekly basis but keeping the ball on the ground, especially in Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Nevada Wolf Pack at Fresno State Bulldogs

Nevada at Fresno State
Saturday, 7 pm PT
CRIS Opener: Fresno State -9 O/U 55
CRIS Current: Fresno State -9.5 O/U 61
Recommendation: Fresno State

If you want to be proactive instead of reactive as any serious sportsbettor should strive to do – the time to jump on the Fresno State Bulldogs is right now! The betting markets don’t have a strong sense of where Jeff Tedford’s squad should be power rated right now. Fresno was truly a bottom feeder by the end of the Tim DeRuyter era. They went 20-6 in DeRuyter’s first two years on the job with Derek Carr at QB, but dropped to 4-20 in his last two seasons with two of those four wins coming against FCS level competition. The markets did what they do slow to adjust, but eventually adjusting Fresno waaaaay down from where the program had been for the better part of the previous two decades.

DeRuyter, mercifully, was relieved of his duties by the time November rolled around, and Tedford took over as head coach. Read more

UNLV at Ohio State
Saturday, 9 am PT - Big Ten Network
CRIS Opener: Ohio State -39.5 O/U 65
CRIS Current: Ohio State -40 O/U 64.5
Recommendation: Over

Eliminate for a second Ohio State's dismal offensive showing vs. Oklahoma in which the Buckeyes posted only 350 total yards and 16 points. Instead, turn your attention to Week 1 in which the Buckeyes rolled up nearly 600 yards and 49 points against Indiana. And last week as well as OSU hung 586 yards on only 69 plays in its win over Army. Bettors should feel confident moving forward that Ohio State's offense is only going to get better as first-year OC Kevin Wilson and Urban Meyer adjust to one another. In the meantime, this is still a top-tier offense, especially when facing lower-tier competition which is exactly what they'll see this weekend in UNLV.

The Rebels were not an especially strong defensive team a season ago even though the schedule came up very light in terms of opposing offenses. UNLV faced only three teams in the top 50 in total offense and in those three games it allowed 50 ppg. This season's Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Stanford Cardinal at USC Trojans

Stanford at USC
Saturday, 5:30 pm PT - FOX
CRIS Opener: USC -5.5 O/U 54.5
CRIS Current: USC -5.5 O/U 54.5
Recommendation: USC

Key early season conference tilt in the PAC-12 with Stanford heading to USC. The Cardinal got the better of the Trojans last season, 27-10, in a similar conference opener setting. The results should reverse on Saturday as Stanford has the dubious task of coming in off of what I believe to be an unproductive bye week after opening the season with a 62-7 blowout win in Australia over weakling Rice. Last season, Stanford opened with a win over Kansas State, had a bye week, and they dispatched the Trojans in Palo Alto. While that appears similar situation-wise, there are some distinct differences. For one, Stanford never left campus. Their win over Kansas State was at home, followed by a bye, and then another home game vs. USC. And the Wildcats served as a "real" opponent, one that no doubt helped better prepare Stanford for its looming matchup against the Trojans. There was no resistance whatsoever in Week 1 as Rice grades out as one of the worst Read more

College Football Betting: After historic loss, UNLV takes money for matchup at Idaho

09.05.2017     11:30 AM     Printer Friendly
Speaking of ridiculous outcomes, UNLV's loss to FCS Howard is being billed "the biggest upset in college football history." There are a lot of quality FCS teams. Just ask East Carolina who got blasted by top-ranked James Madison, at home, 34-14. But Howard isn't on that level. In fact, even with the victory over the Rebels, Sagarin has the Bison ranked 231st out of 254 FBS/FCS teams. The real question now becomes, do we bet on UNLV this week with it travels to Idaho? To compare, last season, UNLV closed -14.5 vs. Idaho but lost 33-30 in overtime. Now they are catching as much as a touchdown in Moscow. Below is the game's line history as of this afternoon. You can see that the initial money came in the Vandals but since then, UNLV has been the prefered side.
