10 Best Over/Under Point Total Picks So Far: 21-19

Starting with a few that didn’t quite make the cut, but are still spicy …

USC at Arizona 59.5 UNDER
Bowling Green at Georgia Tech 66 OVER
Syracuse at Clemson 64.5 UNDER

10. UTEP at UTSA

LINE: UTSA -10, o/u: 45

It just doesn’t take all that much to get to 45 points. The UTEP offense might be a disaster, but two of the three FBS games went over 45 combined points. The one it didn’t was the loss to Tennessee. The UTSA defense isn’t as good as Tennessee’s.

All four Roadrunner games this year have gone over the 45. It’s not going to be a wild shootout, but both teams should be able to get into the 20s. That will be enough.

9. Indiana at Rutgers

LINE: Indiana -16.5, o/u: 50.5

Rutgers gave up 42 points last week to Buffalo. It gave away 55 to Kansas the week before, and 52 to Ohio State the week before that. Even if Indiana has decent attack, if all goes according to form it should be able to handle a chunk of the number by itself.

The IU defense isn’t a rock – Rutgers should be able to score at least two touchdowns. Don’t worry about the 20-16 IU win over Virginia a few weeks ago, that was in lousy weather.

These two won’t blow it up, but 50.5 isn’t a big target.

8. Central Michigan at Michigan State

LINE: Michigan State -29, o/u: 47.5

Your worry is the Central Michigan offense.

It only managed 17 points in a win over Maine last week, and it has yet to score more than 20 in any game this year. Worse yet, none of the four Chippewa games this season have hit the 48-point mark.

Michigan State’s offense hasn’t exactly been humming, but it scored 38 against Utah State and 35 against Indiana. It should be able to get into the mid-30s, and it’s not insane to think it could get to 40.

7. Virginia at NC State

LINE: NC State -6, o/u: 52

This is an X factor game because we still don’t quite know what NC State is yet.

Virginia’s defense has been good enough to keep teams to 20 points or fewer in three of the four games, and NC State’s offense rolled against Georgia State and Marshall. However, the Pack haven’t played a nasty D yet.

And two of the three NC State games haven’t been able to work up to 52.

The Wolfpack don’t have a running game, Virginia’s offense isn’t going to explode – the two teams will play in the 20s with the total around the 40s, not the 50s.

6. Miami University at Western Michigan

LINE: Western Michigan -2.5, o/u: 53

Western Michigan has been flaky so far without playing the same game twice, but that has a whole lot to do with the opponents. The D didn’t show up against Syracuse and Michigan, and it dominate Delaware State and Georgia State.

And now, Miami University is somewhere in between.

The RedHawk offense scored just three points in losses to Cincinnati and Minnesota, but it rolled against the Group of Five teams. It’ll be able to get to around 30 points against the Bronco defense, the WMU offense should at least be in the 20s, and getting by 53 shouldn’t be an issue.
