10 Best Over/Under Point Total Picks So Far: 10-13

Click on each game for the game preview and fearless prediction.

10. Texas Tech at Arizona

LINE: Texas Tech -2.5, o/u: 76.5

And in this week’s episode of Always Take The Over In Late Night Games, Just Because …

Texas Tech really, really, really can’t stop the run, and Arizona is fantastic on the ground.

Arizona really, really, really can’t get into the backfield and stop a crisp passing team, and Texas Tech is still Texas Tech.

Asking for 77 points is a lot, but these two should each be having around in the 40s in a late night shootout.

9. North Texas at Cal

LINE: Cal -13.5, o/u: 50.5

There’s reason to be a wee bit afraid here. North Texas’ first two games combined for 82 and 76 so far, and it has the firepower to open it up a bit. However, you’re hoping for the Cal defense to go all Cal defense an dkeep this low. The UNT offense didn’t show up against SMU last week, and the first two Cal point totals were 40 and 39. Bank on the Bears.

8. Iowa at Iowa State

LINE: Iowa -2.5, o/u: 44.5

These two teams have a whole lot of D, but even so, asking for the under on a 44.5 point total is a tall task. Last year this was a 13-3 Iowa win, but that was before Brock Purdy took over the quarterbacking gig for the Cyclones. Even so, points will be at a premium in an intense battle that should hover around the teens.

7. Washington State vs. Houston

LINE: Washington State -8.5, o/u: 76

Hopefully this turns into a wild and crazy shootout between these two high-octane offenses, but the public brought down the total a bit over the last few days. 65-61 is the hope, but the reality should be a bit more of a fight as the game goes on thanks to the Wazzu D that’s allowed 24 points in the first two games. This can be a fun firefight and still not get to the 76.

6. Hawaii at Washington

LINE: Washington -20.5, o/u: 58.5

It’s a knee-jerk reaction to automatically go with the over on all things Hawaii ….

And go with it here, too, but do it because of Washington. The Hawaii defense allowed 38 points to Arizona and 28 to Oregon State, but on the road, it’s about to have a hard time with the power of a Husky team looking to break out offensively after being bottled up by Cal.

UW came up with 47 in Week One against Eastern Washington, and it should be able to get close to that, if not flirt with getting to 58 on its own.
