Sports bettors will find that the Tigers are 4-2 SU and 5-1 ATS as underdogs since 2011.

Arkansas is the only team in the country to play preseason Top 10 teams in four consecutive weeks, as it attempts to snap a six-game losing streak against Alabama—losing those games by an average of 24.3 points.

When making their college football picks, sports handicappers will find that the Crimson Tide are 6-0 SU&ATS as favorites of 21.5 to 31 points the last two-plus seasons.

UCLA Bruins vs. Stanford Cardinal -5 (-7)

UCLA started a pair of true freshman on the offensive line for the first time in school history last Saturday, but quarterback Brett Hundley still managed to throw for a career-high 410 yards.

Stanford will be looking to bounce back from its first loss of the 2013 campaign, as it has gotten away from its offensive identity in recent weeks.

The Cardinal are 3-0 SU&ATS as home favorites of 3.5 to 7 points the last two-plus seasons.


USC Trojans vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish -3 (PK)

USC hasn’t lost in South Bend since 2001, as it looks to build off its 38-31 victory over the Arizona Wildcats as 5.5-point home favorites last Thursday.

Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly improved to 7-3 SU against Pac-12 Conference foes after securing a 37-34 win over the Arizona State Sun Devils as 6.5-point neutral-site underdogs on October 5th.

The Trojans are 0-2 SU&ATS as road underdogs of three points or less the last two-plus seasons.


Washington Huskies vs. Arizona State Sun Devils -3.5 (-3)

Washington running back Bishop Sankey is one of the more dynamic offensive players in the Pac-12, as he’s ran for 100-plus yards in nine of his last 11 games dating back to last season.

Arizona State is averaging 45.8 points at home under second-year head coach Todd Graham.
