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)
Washington Huskies vs. UCLA Bruins -2.5 (-3)
Washington has put together a two-game win streak by picking up victories against Colorado and California, while UCLA returns home after its first victory on the road against the Arizona Wildcats since 2003.
College football handicappers will find that the Bruins are 2-0 SUATS with a betting line of +3 to -3 this season.
Florida Gators vs. South Carolina Gamecocks -13 (-11)
Florida will be playing an opponent who has had more than one week to prepare for the fifth time overall this season, while South Carolina climbed to No. 10 in the BCS standings during a bye week.
Sports bettors will find that the Gators are 0-5 SU and 1-4 ATS in their last five opportunities as an underdog of 10.5 to 21 points.
Michigan Wolverines vs. Northwestern Wildcats -2.5 (+1)
Michigan will look to bounce back from its first home loss under third-year head coach Brady Hoke, while Northwestern has scored on 34-of-35 red-zone opportunities during the 2013 campaign.
The Wolverines are 0-2 SUATS as road underdogs of three or less points since 2011. Given these trends, should bettors back Northwestern with their college football picks in this situation?
Georgia Bulldogs vs. Auburn Tigers -4 (-3)
Georgia has a minus-seven turnover margin through nine games of the season, which could spell trouble against Auburn, who moved up two spots to land in the No. 7 spot in the last BCS standings.
