Top-ranked Alabama rolled into Baton Rouge and left unbeaten after blanking #13 LSU, 10-0 in the biggest Defensive battle of the season. Here are some of the lessons we learned during week 10 in NCAAF betting.
NCAAF PICKS ATS RECORD: 19-7-0
#1 Alabama, #13 LSU Put on Tackling Display in Death Valley; #3 Michigan Rolls
The most anticipated FBS Regular Season game of the year was played in Week 10, with top-ranked Alabama (9-0 SU, 7-2 ATS) shutting out #13 LSU (5-2 SU, 3-4 ATS) and Leonard Fournette (100/1 to win Heisman Trophy, Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook), 10-0 in Baton Rouge to likely stay on top of the CFP Rankings. The Crimson Tide (+240 to win CFP National Championship, Heritage) won their 21st in a row and beat LSU (only FBS team without 4th Down Conversion) for the 6th straight time. Also in the SEC, #9 Auburn (7-2 SU/ATS)—23-16 winners over Vanderbilt (AUB -22½) and winners of 6 straight games now—controls its own destiny after #4 Texas A&M was upset by Mississippi State, 35-28 at Davis Wade Stadium in Starkville (A&M -10½, BetDSI). So the Iron Bowl in two weeks (Saturday, Nov. 26, ALA -14, 2016 Games of the Year, SuperBook) looms large.
Jabrill Peppers (8/1 to win Heisman Trophy, SuperBook) and #3 Michigan, now 9/1 to win CFP National Championship)—dominated on both sides of the ball again, shelling Maryland, 59-3, holding its 5th opponent in the L6 to 10 points or less (10, 7, 0, 8, 23, 3). The Wolverines (9-0 SU, 5-4 ATS) are ranked #3 in FBS Scoring Defense, allowing just 11.6 ppg. The huge Big Ten meeting against JT Barrett (10/1 to win Heisman Trophy, SuperBook) at Ohio State (+630 to win CFP National Championship, BookMaker) on Saturday, Nov. 19 at the Horseshoe is now lined at OSU -23½ in the 2016 Games of the Year at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook—a truly mind-boggling Point Spread in a game in which Michigan has a shot of winning.
Host and #2 Clemson Juices Orange in ACC Play, Tigers Deshaun Watson Injures His Shoulder
Deshaun Watson (7/1 to win Heisman Trophy, SuperBook) suffered a Bruised Shoulder but #2 Clemson (6/1 to win NCAA Championship, BetOnline) remained unbeaten, trampling Syracuse, 56-0 at Clemson as the Tigers and Head Coach Dabo Swinney have now W18-19 are tied with the second-longest Conference Win Streak in the nation (13) behind Donnel Pumphrey (80/1 to win Heisman Trophy, SuperBook) and San Diego State (W15), who pureed Hawai'i, 55-0 (SDS -21, SuperBook) in San Diego. Clemson looks headed for the ACC Championship Game (Dec. 3, Camping World Stadium in Orlando) undefeated and should be playing on New Year's Eve.
