Let’s take a closer look at six games in the next round of action, while examining other college football odds that are being offered in the marketplace.
Opening number at Bookmaker sportsbook is represented in parentheses (road team vs. home team)
Oregon Ducks -10 (-7.5) vs. Stanford Cardinal
Oregon allowed just 283 yards in its 42-14 victory over the UCLA Bruins as 23.5-point home favorites on Oct. 26, while Stanford has won 35 of its last 42 games in Pac-12 Conference play.
College football handicappers will find that the Ducks are 10-0 SUATS as road favorites the last two-plus seasons.
Oklahoma Sooners vs. Baylor Bears -14.5 (-9)
Oklahoma has won 21 of 22 all-time meetings against Baylor, including a 13-1 mark under head coach Bob Stoops.
The Bears have had at least 400 yards of total offense in 34 consecutive games— a big reason why the Sooners will likely dress up as a road underdog of 10.5 to 14 points for just the second time since 1992.
Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Miami Hurricanes -6.5 (-6)
Virginia Tech has lost back-to-back games due to turning the ball over at a high rate, while Miami will look to bounce back from a 41-14 blowout loss to the Florida State Seminoles last Saturday, as it was out-gained by a sizable 517-275 margin.
In its last 16 opportunities, the Hokies are 12-4 ATS as road underdogs of 3.5 to 7 points. Given these trends, should bettors back Virginia Tech college football picks in this situation?
UCLA Bruins -1 (-2.5) vs. Arizona Wildcats
UCLA is 13-0 under second-year head coach Jim Mora when leading at the break, as it prepares to take on Arizona running back Ka’Deem Carey, who has 11-straight 100-yard rushing games.
Sports bettors will find that the favorite has covered the number in the last six meetings in this series.
Mississippi State Bulldogs vs. Texas A&M Aggies -19
Mississippi State is averaging 447.1 yards per game, which would shatter the school record, but Texas A&M has gained 500-plus yards of total offense in eight consecutive games.
The Bulldogs are 0-13 SU and 3-10 ATS as underdogs since 2011.
LSU Tigers vs. Alabama Crimson Tide -11 (-9)
LSU has won 37 of 41 games under head coach Les Miles when finishing with a 100-yard rusher, while Alabama has out-gained its last six opponents by an average of 253.5 yards per game.
Total players will find that the UNDER is 4-0 in the last four meetings in this Southeastern Conference rivalry.
