College Football Betting Advice, Final Thoughts: Week 8

Ehhhhhhhhh, Liberty -13.5 against Southern Miss? Liberty is good, Southern Miss is bad, but that’s still a big, big spread after starting out at Flames -11. The Golden Eagles are fun-bad – they’ll put up enough yards and  points late to make you worry if you’re a Liberty type.

Does it really matter that the total is 72? UCF could put that up by itself against Tulane if it starts finishing off more drives. These two are going to be in a blast of a back-and-forth firefight, but the line is right on the money at UCF -21. (We did the preview when it was at 19.5.)

Bad Analysis/Investment Advice time. I just kinda sorta think Tennessee is flaky enough to be annoying against Alabama with a few late points. The world will jump on the Tide and boost the line up past the 22 it’s currently at, but …

After last week’s total clunker against Kentucky, watch out for the Vols to at least not get obliterated.

Is Marshall really 16 points stronger than a Florida Atlantic team that will eventually turn it on once it gets its sea legs? Eventually, FAU will be good this year, but the Herd already are.

If you’ve been reading any and all of our 2020 advice stuff, love Pitt, love Pitt, loved it last week when it covered against Miami. Notre Dame only giving away 9.5 as it tries to get past last week’s uggo against Louisville? Hate Pitt, hate Pitt …

It’s totally unprofessional, but rooting for Oklahoma State. If Iowa State wins, I’m going to have to make the correct argument that at least four Sun Belt teams will deserve to be ranked ahead of everyone in the Big 12, and I’m tired. This should be way too close to have any interest in playing around with the Cowboys -3.

There’s a big part of me that thinks we’re going to be talking about Michael Penix, Stevie Scott, and the Indiana offense next week at this time. There’s a bigger part of me that thinks it’s Indiana, and Penn State is only giving away six.

Sort of like the Pitt love and the anti-Duke stance of this year, all in on Virginia Tech being awesome. However, Wake Forest is sneaky-better-than-you-think. At home getting 10.5, the Demon Deacons aren’t just a good play, they’re a fantastic money line value call at +320.

What we don’t know – does Rice have the running game and is the team in shape to hit the ground running? What we do know – Middle Tennessee isn’t very good. The line of Rice -4 is about right … don’t even mess with this.

Yeah, Navy has been a disappointment, and it’s not showing off the firepower or consistency it was supposed to, but the world is HAMMERING Houston way too hard. It started out at -11, not it’s Cougars -15 on the road against a team that can control the clock and the game if everything is working. See if you can get the line to go up just a smidge more before jumping on Navy.

You know your supposedly elite football program has a problem when the fight song controversy is far more interesting than the team. Texas is far better than Baylor, but what has this Longhorn team showed you this year to prove that it’s double-digits better than anyone in the Big 12 other than Kansas?

The world is IN LOVE with Purdue. I’m being hollered at by smart people that the Boilermakers getting 3.5 at home against Iowa is a stone cold lock. No Rondale Moore – at least for this game – no head coach, and Iowa is better. I’ll buy Purdue as being just that good when it actually happens.
