Saturday’s college football card has its share of underdogs looking to cash at sports betting windows, with the season’s final stretch of action underway.

Pittsburgh Panthers at Syracuse Orange

Pittsburgh has dropped three of its last four affairs, capped off with last Saturday’s 34-27 defeat as one-point home ‘chalk’ to the North Carolina Tar Heels. The Panthers have not found it any easier on the road, held to a meager 13.3 PPG in their last trio of spots away from “Steel City.”

Syracuse looks to bounce back after a 59-3 thrashing from the Florida State Seminoles, despite controlling the ball for 42 minutes of possession. The Orange responded in a similar spot earlier this month, notching a 13-0 win against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons after being blitzed in their prior duel by Georgia Tech, 56-0. 

Free Pick: Syracuse Orange +1 at The Greek

Hawaii Rainbow Warriors at Wyoming Cowboys 

Wyoming has logged a 1-5 ATS mark in its last six matchups, including a 0-2 spread record in the span’s pair of contests as a home favorite. The Cowboys have given up 43.7 PPG in their last three dates at War Memorial Stadium, while their defense has picked up a subpar 15 sacks through the season. 

Hawaii has failed to come away with a victory yet this year, but has collected on the mainland at 3-2 ATS in its five road spots. The stretch included last month’s 20-point surge in the fourth quarter against the UNLV Rebels to cash as a 7 ½-point underdog, while facing another vulnerable foe here.

Free Pick: Hawaii Rainbow Warriors +6 at Bet365

Texas A&M Aggies at LSU Tigers 

Louisiana State enters this marquee affair on a 0-3 ATS slide, while held to a 1-3 spread mark in the team’s last four home dates. The Tigers’ octane has dropped to 26.5 PPG through its last four weeks of action, with Les Miles’ crew stepping up in class since the 45.5 PPG put up in the season’s first six contests. 

Texas A&M has not been a road dog since last November’s 29-24 upset of the Alabama Crimson Tide, while looking for revenge here after last year’s 24-19 defeat against LSU in College Station. Aggies quarterback Johnny Manziel looks for redemption after tossing three interceptions in that matchup, while leading the SEC with a 186.9 passer rating. 

Free Pick:Texas A&M +4 ½ at Ladbrokes

Brigham Young Cougars at Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Notre Dame saw a four-game winning streak come to an end with this month’s 28-21 setback against Pittsburgh, failing to collect as a 4 ½-point road favorite. The Fighting Irish have given up 34 points or more in three of their last four affairs at Notre Dame Stadium, while going 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 home matchups.

Brigham Young has been undervalued in recent action with a 4-2-1 spread record through the team’s last seven duels. The Cougars have piled in 31.7 PPG in their most recent three road spots, while cashing at a stellar 14-6 ATS in their last 20 battles against foes with winning records.
