10 Best Over/Under Point Total Picks So Far: 17-16

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

10. Central Michigan at Miami

LINE: Miami -29.5, o/u: 47.5

This week’s theme … go ahead and like the teams that can potentially take care of the point total all by itself, starting with Miami.

The Miami offense worked just fine against Florida and North Carolina, but those two have defenses. Bethune-Cookman doesn’t, and the Canes rolled 63-0. Central Michigan put up 45 last week against Akron but got blasted 61-0 by Wisconsin the week before.

The Hurricanes could get to 48 all by themselves, but Central Michigan might be able to score a little bit to help the cause. too.

And the theme continues with …

9. Old Dominion at Virginia

LINE: Virginia -28.5, o/u: 46

Again, which teams can potentially cover the point total all by themselves? In Virginia’s three games, it scored 30 against Pitt, 52 on William & Mary, and 31 against Florida State. There’s a shot it doesn’t show up in a sandwich game with FSU last week and Notre Dame up next, but getting to 46 isn’t crazy. Old Dominion has enough of an offense to add a few scores – it lost to Virginia Tech two weeks ago with the teams combining for 48 points.

Okay, let’s roll with some defenses for a while here …

8. Colorado at Arizona State

LINE: Arizona State -7.5, o/u: 48.5

What about Arizona State rolling three straight sevens do you not like? The Sun Devils allowing just a touchdown in each of its first two games against Kent State and Sacramento State was nice, but it held Michigan State to seven last week, too.

Meanwhile, the ASU offense is sputtering and coughing to get things going. All three Colorado games have blown past the 49-point mark, but in Tempe at night, assume the ASU defense will do ASU defensive things to keep this low.

Sticking with the defensive theme …

7. SMU at TCU

LINE: TCU -9.5, o/u: 55.5

The TCU offense hasn’t been great, but it’s done just enough to push close to the 55.5 if the SMU offense gets its passing game going. The Mustangs are averaging over 44 points per game, but they haven’t dealt with anyone like TCU yet. The Horned Frogs are strong enough defensively – the secondary is a rock – to keep the score really, really low. Don’t be stunned if this is kept in the 40s instead of into the 50s.

One more time with the defensive slugfests …

6. Utah State at San Diego State

LINE: Utah State -4.5, o/u: 54.5

Oh yes, you do like the San Diego State defense, and for this, you like the San Diego State offense, too.

The Aztecs aren’t giving up a thing so far, allowing just 24 points in the first three games. The Aztec offense isn’t scoring a thing so far, coming up with just 60 points in those three games.

The concern is that Utah State and its high-powered offense goes off, but even if that happens, it’s not going to score enough to matter in the point total considering the SDSU O just isn’t that good.
