College Football Week 8 Value picks are here! Let's have a look at some of the more favorable betting lines for our NCAA football picks.

The Texas Longhorns topped last week’s NCAAF Value Picks, cashing over the Oklahoma Sooners as 

part of a 3-1 ATS day for my followers.  Four underdogs have been chosen again for this Saturday’s card, with action from the Big 12, 

SEC, and Pacific 12. 

TCU Horned Frogs at Oklahoma State Cowboys

TCU has collected with a 2-1 spread record in its last three contests, including a winning ticket in the span’s sole spot as a road dog. The Horned Frogs were edged in a 20-17 defeat to the Oklahoma Sooners, two weeks ago, while getting the money thanks to 10 points from NCAAF odds makers.

Oklahoma State has been overvalued in conference play, logging a pair of ATS losses in its first two Big 12 affairs. The premium is lowered a bit here, but the Cowboys face a TCU squad with a 5-2 spread mark in its last seven road matchups against foes with winning home records.

Free Pick:  TCU +7 ½ at Bet365

South Carolina Gamecocks at Tennessee Volunteers

South Carolina came away with a 52-7 win in last week’s victory over the Arkansas Razorbacks, cashing as double-digit road ‘chalk.’ The Gamecocks made it look easy, but should be in a tougher fight in this Saturday’s card as the Volunteers return from their bye week.

Tennessee is 3-1 ATS in its last four meetings with South Carolina, while revenge-minded here after falling in last year’s 38-35 defeat in Colombia. Look for the Volunteers to stay within a touchdown, handing the Gamecocks another losing college football betting ticket in their 0-4 ATS slide on grass fields.

Free Pick: Tennessee +7 at The Greek

Florida Gators at Missouri Tigers

Florida failed to reach the end zone in last Saturday’s 17-6 defeat as a nine-point road dog against the LSU Tigers. The Gators are 2-3 ATS in their five spots as betting odds favorites, including a 21-16 defeat to the Miami Hurricanes.

Missouri has piled in 45.7 PPG through its six victories, surging to a 5-0-1 spread record. Tigers mates Michael Sam and Kentrell Brothers have also dominated the team’s defense, with six sacks and three interceptions, respectively.

Free Pick: Missouri +3 at Heritage Sports

Washington Huskies at Arizona State Sun Devils

Washington takes a drop in class here after being edged in a pair of battles with top-five foes Stanford and Oregon. The Huskies come in with value, cashing 5-2 ATS in their last seven spots that followed a defeat.

Arizona State has piled on its share of points at home, but meets a squad that can match its octane here at Sun Devil Stadium. Sun Devils’ backers have gone 3-7 ATS in the team’s last 10 contests against winning foes, while logging a 1-2 spread record in ASU’s three spots this year as ‘chalk’ of seven points or less.

Free Pick: Washington +3 at Ladbrokes
