10 Best Over/Under Point Total Picks So Far: 48-45


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

10. Ohio State at Rutgers

LINE: Ohio State -52.5, o/u: 61.5
POINT TOTAL PICK: Over
Bet on this, BetMGM latest line

Oh, why not? Go really, really light – this is the sugar rush over pick just to have a little fun.

The correct, professional play here is to go with the under, mainly because Rutgers might not score and the final should be around 55ish-0. But why miss out on the fun if the Buckeyes just sort of stumble into their third 70+ game of the year?

9. South Carolina at Texas A&M

LINE: Texas A&M -12, o/u: 49.5
POINT TOTAL PICK: Over
Bet on this, BetMGM latest line

There’s reason to be nervous considering South Carolina hasn’t scored more than 27 points against an FBS team, but it should be good for 21. Texas A&M at home should be able to handle the rest. The Aggies put up 49 on Mississippi State three weeks ago, and followed it up with 45 against UTSA. They only scored fewer than 41 at home against Alabama.

8. Kansas at Oklahoma State

LINE: Oklahoma State -17.5 o/u: 68.5
POINT TOTAL PICK: Over
Bet on this, BetMGM latest line

Both teams are rested, both teams have bad defenses, both teams have enough offense to make this fun. But do we get good Kansas or bad Kansas? If it’s bad Kansas, forget about it, take the loss and move on. But if the passing game shows up – and it should against the horrible OSU D – asking for a 45ish-35ish game isn’t crazy.

7. Arizona at Oregon

LINE: Oregon -27, o/u: 68.5
POINT TOTAL PICK: Over
Bet on this, BetMGM latest line

This is a massive total to hit, but the Arizona defense is just that bad. It hasn’t allowed fewer than 41 points in any of its last four games, but you’re going to need the offense to show up, too. Oregon always seems to underwhelm when you expect the O to blow up, and there’s the worry of a 45-3 win over Colorado type of game, but it’s worth taking the shot at a wee bit of a shootout.

6. Wyoming at Utah State

LINE: Utah State -4.5, o/u: 50.5
POINT TOTAL PICK: Under
Bet on this, BetMGM latest line

It’s Wyoming. Under, under, under. The last four Cowboy games didn’t get past 48 total points, and they only got past 51 two times all year – the wins over Missouri and UNLV. Before putting up 37 on Fresno State last week, Utah State scored 14 points or fewer in three of its previous four games.

5. Middle Tennessee at Rice

LINE: Middle Tennessee -14.5, o/u: 47.5
POINT TOTAL PICK: Under
Bet on this, BetMGM latest line

Rice needs to go Rice here. Middle Tennessee hung up 50 on FIU a few weeks ago, but Rice has a way of keeping scores low and games tight. The Owls and Southern Miss got to 26 points, and the Marshall game hit 27 two weeks ago. The Owls won’t score more than 17 points – do with that what you must.

4. Tulane at Temple

LINE: Tulane -6, o/u: 54.5
POINT TOTAL PICK: Under
Bet on this, BetMGM latest line

Tulane has been scoring lately, putting up 38 or more in six of its last seven games. Temple has been giving it up lately, allowing 45 to SMU and 63 to UCF. Expect both sides to chill out in Philly in a game played in the 20s. Both defenses will show up, especially the Owls’.

3. Southern Miss at UTSA

LINE: Southern Miss -17, o/u: 52.5
POINT TOTAL PICK: Under
Bet on this, BetMGM latest line

6 and 2. That’s what the Southern Miss defense has done over the last two weeks, beating Rice 20-6 and UAB 37-2. USM has the potential to put 40 on the board, but expect the defense – and the middling UTSA O – to come through low. The Roadrunners have scored 14 points or fewer in five of its last eight games.

2. West Virginia at Kansas State

LINE: Kansas State -14, o/u: 46
POINT TOTAL PICK: Over
Bet on this, BetMGM latest line

It’s always fun when there’s a chance one side might hit the over on its own. Kansas State hit Oklahoma for 48 points a few weeks ago, and West Virginia gave up 38 to Texas Tech last week. The Mountaineers have to show up and score at least 14, but the last three K-State games have gone past 46 and six of the last seven WVU games passed the mark.

Speaking of one side doing all of the work …

1. Wake Forest at Clemson

LINE: Clemson -34, o/u: 59.5
POINT TOTAL PICK: Over
Bet on this, BetMGM latest line

The fear is that the Clemson defense rises up and does something ridiculous to the nation’s 13th-best offense, but … nah. The Tigers are on a ridiculous run scoring 55 points or more in their last three games. The last three Wake Forest games haven’t come close to 60 points, but that’s what Clemson on Senior Day is for.
