It might not be the most scintillating weekend of games, but that doesn’t matter since anything is interesting when you’re investing.

This is when there’s work to be done. There aren’t any layups like Notre Dame covering against Georgia – and losing, of course – but that doesn’t mean there aren’t few gems to pull from this weekend.

This is all for spits, giggles, and entertainment purposes only, however, just in case you dabble …

Can San Jose State stop the Air Force running game? Yeah, sort of. It’s holding teams to under four yards per carry, and it’s doing just enough to keep offenses from going off. But do you really believe in the Spartans on the road again after shocking Arkansas? The line has come way down from 24, and you’re being asked to bet on … San Jose State? It goes against everything you believe in but take the 19.5 and watch with one eye closed.

ACC Betting Advice, Final Thoughts

You really, really wanted Duke getting 7 against Virginia Tech, but the world wanted that, too. Now it’s down to Hokies -2.5 in what should be a dead even game that you’d normally stay away from, but it’s a Friday night. Duke might just win this outright and you’ll need it with the low line.

If you can get the FBS vs. FCS lines anywhere, see what you can do on Pitt giving away just 27 on Delaware. The Panther offense hasn’t done anything yet, but it’ll go off on the Blue Hens. Be a little more wary of Syracuse -38.5 against Holy Cross, but the Crusaders can’t score.

The crazy part about this is that Clemson isn’t playing all that well – at least for Clemson – and it’s still killing everyone. The line against North Carolina is hanging around at 27, but see if you can get it a little bit higher. The Tigers should be able to hang 40 and roll … and still not quite cover the 27. Forget about the Appalachian State loss and be careful of the Tar Heels being a wee bit pesky.

Notre Dame hosting Virginia feels like a trap. The Irish fans hit the line hard, and investors who saw the Georgia game and noticed that Virginia needed everything in the bag to get by Old Dominion moved the line. It went from ND -11 to 12.5, but you don’t need that extra 1.5.

Virginia has the style and the system to win this outright in what should be a low-scoring thriller. If this just so happens to be the week the Irish running backs start to produce, tip your cap and press on. (Hint … it won’t be.)

Fair warning … I have a blind spot for Georgia Tech. This team should be a whole lot better than it is, and it seems like the loss to Citadel last week is providing an opportunity for a sort-of-high line of Temple -8. It was at 9 for a while – you can still find it. See what you can get, take Georgia Tech, and assume the ACC program will at least keep this low scoring and close.

At SOME point Boston College is going to be better. It’s got the parts, but the team just isn’t clicking like it should. The passing game isn’t doing nearly enough stay with Wake Forest, but on the road, be careful of giving away 6.5 with the Demon Deacons. Go ahead, but this is a flaky Eagle team that could pivot to above-average at any moment.

This same analysis didn’t work last week with Florida State, but NC State isn’t Louisville. FSU is quietly starting to improve, and NC State quietly has been … quiet. The Wolfpack should be better than 6.5 points they’re getting against FSU. They have the talent to win this outright, much less be getting almost a touchdown. Expect an entertaining game that should have more scoring than you might think.
