College Football Picks - O/U Picks For Late Saturday Games

Cal Bears Running Back

Saturday, November 12, 2016 4:08 PM GMT

Our College Football handicapper swept his O/U picks last weekend on two games that went well over listed totals. This week he has changed gears, picking two games that should go below and cash Under tickets for wise bettors.

2016 College Football Record: 26-27-2, -3.80 Units

Although my sides have lacked consistency over the last few weeks, my totals picks have saved the day, as I am 5-1 ATS picking College Football totals over the last two weeks. Last weekend I stayed in my backyard as both Washington teams went over the listed total. Let’s scan the board for more wagering value in regards to totals and College Football action.

 

California Golden Bears vs Washington State Cougars

I’ve done well picking the Cougars to keep up their offensive pace lately, and now the high powered offense of the California Golden Bears come to town. This has all the makings of a shootout on the Palouse, as the last game here between these two teams a combined 119 points was scored. So, I’m taking the Under. What? Am I nuts?

Not only does the total listed of 83.5 points exceed my auto-bet threshold of 80 to take the Under, I know what the weather is like right now. I’m sitting about 90 miles from campus after all, writing this article outside while enjoying some wine and a cigar. The weather on Saturday night will be in the mid-40’s at game time, with winds up to 10 mph on the field. Those combined will create a wind chill near freezing, which if it doesn’t slow the Cougars down will certainly slow down Cal. You don’t need many stalled drives to put this game under this high total, and this is the perfect time for a contrarian pick between these high scoring teams. Take the Under here as it is 10-4 in the Cougars last 14 home games. That’s a sneaky trend!

San Diego State Aztecs vs Nevada Wolf Pack

The Aztecs put on a defensive show last week against Hawaii, and now travel to Reno to take on the Nevada Wolf Pack. Nevada has put up some offensive duds this season against tough defenses this year, scoring 17 points or less in 4 of their 9 games. In relative terms I look at that common opponent of Hawaii and see that Nevada only scored 17 points against them in a 17-38 loss. Also, Nevada was only able to score 10 points against San Jose State – a team that San Diego State was able to beat 42-3 just three weeks ago.

The last two matchups between these teams saw almost identical scores in the mid-40’s, and I don’t see a reason to think this game will be any different at all. Nevada QB, Tyler Stewart, is also out for the season which doesn’t help their chances of bucking any trends. Shop around at various books, but right now the Under at 51.5 at Pinnacle looks to have the most value for this game.
