Saturday’s NCAAF betting has its rivalry matchups slated, with value to be found as sports odds makers wind down the month’s action.

Rutgers Scarlet Knights at Connecticut Huskies

Rutgers is 0-4 ATS in its last month of contests, including Thursday’s 41-17 defeat as 20-point road dogs against Central Florida. The Scarlet Knights were held to 221 yards, converting third-down situations at a subpar 3-for-14 mark. 

Connecticut ended a nine-game losing streak with last week’s 28-21 victory over the Temple Owls, cashing as a 6 ½-point NCAAF odds underdog. T.J. Weist’s crew should build from its late momentum here, while the Huskies have collected with a 3-1-1 spread record in their last five home duels against Rutgers.

Free Pick: Connecticut Huskies +3 at Bet365

Maryland Terrapins at NC State Wolfpack 

Maryland has been held to 12.3 PPG in its last three road affairs, logging a 1-2 ATS mark. The Terrapins have failed to cash a pointspread ticket in their four most recent spots when favored, including last week’s 29-26 loss to Boston College as two-point home ‘chalk.’

NC State has dropped seven straight battles, but its scoring has picked up with 23 PPG in the span’s latest trio of duels. The home team has cashed with a 4-0 spread record in the last four years of meetings between these Atlantic Coast Conference rivals, with the Wolfpack undervalued here.

Free Pick: NC State Wolfpack +2 ½ at The Greek

Baylor Bears at TCU Horned Frogs

Baylor had the wind taken out of its sails with last week’s 49-17 setback to the Oklahoma State Cowboys, upset as a 7 ½-point road favorite. The Bears were lit up for 594 total yards, while unable to answer back with its typical high-octane offense.

TCU has seen its last three contests decided by single digits, returning from its bye week here after a 33-31 road defeat to the Kansas State Wildcats. The Horned Frogs have put up 47.3 PPG in their last trio of meetings with Baylor, while looking to add another cashed ticket to the span’s 2-1 ATS mark for our college football picks.

Free Pick: TCU +12 ½ at Heritage Sports

Georgia Bulldogs at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

Georgia has been overvalued through most of the season, emptying bankrolls at 1-7-1 ATS in its last nine weeks of action. Mark Richt’s troops have given up 35.8 PPG in their four road spots, while quarterback Aaron Murray now joins other mates on the injury list with a torn ACL.

Georgia Tech finds itself as a home dog for the first time this year, while notching a 4-2 spread record in its first six dates at Bobby Dodd Stadium. The Yellow Jackets are second in the ACC behind only Florida State in third-down conversion percentage (77-for-145), while looking to end a four-game losing streak in their annual series with Georgia.

Free Pick: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets +3 at Ladbrokes
