Review along with us the college football odds for Saturday's matches. Get ready to find out the best college football picks that'll help you boost profits today.

The college football season has the Football Championship Subdivision, not just the Football Bowl Subdivision. While the FBS prepares for the bowl games, the FCS is in the midst of its 16-team playoff tournament, which is at the quarterfinal stage this weekend. Two of those games are here:

 

Northern Iowa Panthers vs. North Dakota State Bison[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":2960483, "sportsbooksIds":[169,1096,93,19,92,238], "LineTypeId":1, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]

Odds: North Dakota State -7
This is a game in which is a rematch of a regular season matchup which North Dakota State won, 31-28. Northern Iowa gave it everything it had, but North Dakota State was able to answer the challenge. North Dakota State being able to host this game again is a big advantage. Knowing Northern Iowa’s strengths and being very familiar with the Panthers on film will help them scout UNI effectively. It’s true that Northern Iowa gets a second chance at NDSU, and that it’s hard for one team to sweep a season series against an opponent, but when that team is North Dakota State, a sweep is very realistic. North Dakota State has won the last four FCS championships and is the biggest dynasty in the sport. No other team even comes close. The Bison lost their season opener on national television, playing on the road, but as long as they’re at home, they should be trusted. They took UNI’s best shot a few months ago, and while some might think all the pressure is on the Bison, it’s actually the case that UNI has to play even better than it did a few months ago. That’s a very big ask, and it’s unlikely that Northern Iowa will be able to answer the call. Take North Dakota State with your college football picks. The Bison won their first-round playoff game last week very easily, while Northern Iowa won a much less comfortable game, 29-17. North Dakota State was able to rest more players, and that should come into play here.

 

Colgate Raiders vs. Sam Houston State Bearkats

Free College Football Pick: Sam Houston State -11
Best Odds Offered By 5Dimes

 

Odds: Sam Houston State -1
The key point to make here is that while Colgate is on a nice little run, having won its last several games, Sam Houston State has a great comfort zone at home. The Bearkats have shown fewer weaknesses over the course of the whole season, having started their year without the flood of losses which affected Colgate. Sam Houston State should also benefit from home-field advantage. It is also (like North Dakota State) a program which expects to play in the championship round of this tournament as they met and lost to North Dakota State in two championship games over the past four seasons. Colgate is a hot team, but Sam Houston State is a better team, and that kind of differentiation should matter in a situation such as this one. The early kickoff gives the home team a comfort zone which the road team will have a hard time adjusting to. For this reason and others, take Sam Houston State on the college football odds in this situation on Saturday.
