You’re reading this, which means you don’t care about the lack of marquee matchups this weekend. You don’t need LSU-Texas or Texas A&M-Clemson for you to have fun on a college football Saturday.
To you, one way or another, New Mexico State beat Alabama last week.
This is all for spits, giggles, and entertainment purposes only, however, just in case you dabble …
ACC Betting Advice, Final Thoughts
Wake Forest and North Carolina will be a whole lot more fun than whatever that was on Thursday Night Football. These two might have terrific offenses, but the total is way high at 66.5 after starting out at a more reasonable 62.5. North Carolina games have hung around way below 60 so far, but this will still come close. Stay away from this with Wake Forest -3 – it’s a 50/50 game – but if you must, go with the Demon Deacons.

It seems too obvious to go with Boston College -21 against a Kansas team that just lost to Coastal Carolina and struggled against Indiana State, but you’ll be fine. Boston College is good at football this year, and Kansas really, really isn’t. It’s a horrible matchup for the Jayhawks.

Pitt has stayed right around +17 against Penn State, but it would be nice to get another point or two. It’s not going to happen, and you won’t need it. The Panther offense hasn’t done a thing so far this season, and it’s not going to start now. The 53.5 point total is a tad high – it started out a more accurate 48.5.

Until West Virginia can prove it can do anything on offense, NC State is the ridiculously easy play, even on the road. The Wolfpack haven’t played anyone yet, but they’ve been sharp so far winning the first two games 75-6. West Virginia can’t find the passing game groove, and it won’t this week. The 6 is a gift, and the 45.5 total is a tad low, too.

Louisville vs. WKU is a strange game, starting with the location in Nashville between two Kentucky schools. The Hilltoppers stunned FIU last week, but they still don’t have an offense. Believe that the Cardinals have way more than ten points in them against WKU. UofL should be giving away an extra touchdown or so, so take the gift, say thank you, and be on your way.

Stick with the favorites this week with the ACC. Middle Tennessee has a decent offense, and it’s playing at home, but the Power Five team is only giving away 6.5. The over on the 50.5 is relatively tasty, and you’re not asking a whole lot out of the Blue Devils to set you up.

It’s the same thing, different week, different game. Clemson can destroy Syracuse and still not cover the 28, just like it dominated Texas A&M and didn’t cover. You don’t think the Orange might be a wee bit embarrassed after what happened last week against Maryland? You’ll worry again until the end, but the Orange pass rush will take care of you.

Florida State going to Virginia is very, very, very, very, very scary. There have been flashes, and FSU has looked the part of something special in the first halves of games, but the D can’t handle good quarterbacks, and Bryce Perkins is about to do something terrific. UVa -7.5 is a wee high – it’s going to come down more before gametime.
