For betting college football, let's jump into the second half of the season, as conferences races start heating up. Moving ahead, bettors can have various platform to consider to finding winner NCAAF picks.


Doug's Record For These Upset Plays (10-10-1 ATS)

For example, do you back surprising unbeaten teams or those of a real gut-wrenching loss? And what about favorites or in unusual situations or teams with different offensive skills that are hard to defend. Turns out when reviewing the college football odds, we found all four of these scenarios.

In each case, after looking over the odds at A+ rated BetOnine, we feel confident about college football picks in which the underdog has a chance to win outright.

West Virginia Up to Task?

With its demolition of Texas Tech on the road, West Virginia took a huge jump in the polls with its 5-0 record. However, polls are based on wins and losses, not the strength of the team and with the Mountaineers 2-2-1 ATS, they at this point do not look like the No.12 team in the country. TCU is not the same crew we are used to seeing either at 1-5 ATS, but the Horned Frogs are 12-0 ATS coming off a bye week, while the 'Teers are 0-6 ATS when favored by less than a touchdown at home. TCU at +190 worth a peek.

Iowa in Favorable Situation

The Hawkeyes were supposed to win the Big Ten West and still might, but with home defeats to North Dakota State and Northwestern, they are the three-point home underdog to Wisconsin. Nonetheless, the Badgers are going through scheduling gauntlet and are off grueling and disappointing OT loss to Ohio State. One has to at least contemplate the Hawkeyes can pull this upset off at Kinnick Stadium and they are at the very least 9-3 ATS against Wisconsin.

Arizona State Might Present Washington State with Devil of a Time

After losing first two games, Washington State has reeled off four wins in a row and has oddsmakers respect. After a strong start, Arizona State has been going through quarterbacks like plates at a restaurant and here is a seven-point home underdog. However, the Cougars are a Pac-12 road favorite for the first time since 2006 and not by just a point or two. The Sun Devils are used to playing in high scoring affairs and at +265, could make intriguing.

Navy Sinks Memphis at Home

Last year Memphis did not know what hit them, permitting 374 yards rushing to Navy at home in 45-20 loss. If anything, this Tigers defense is weaker and while they might be better prepared, it is the first time for this coaching staff to figure this Midshipmen option offense out. Opposing teams hate all the cut-blocking and it is as mentally taxing as physical. With the Middies a home underdog, I'll back them to reach 10-1 ATS at home as +125 dogs.
