College Football Betting Advice, Final Thoughts: Week 8

Minnesota has the starting 22, and it has the passing game and explosion, but Michigan has the lines, it has the running game, it has the run defense, and it has the overall talent to not only win, but do it by more than 3.5. The last time Minnesota beat Michigan in Minneapolis? 1977.

The Fresno State – Hawaii line started out at Bulldogs -8 before falling through the floor. The Hawaii money came flying in, and now it’s down to 2.5 – cool. Two new coaching staffs, Fresno State has the running game to rumble on the Hawaii defensive front without a problem … you were fine at 8.

It’s extremely possible that this call is really, really, really, really wrong, but I think Northwestern is about to bounce back relatively big. It won’t go to the Big Ten title game like it did in 2018, but it’ll be a whole lot better than 2019. Unfortunately, it seems like the rest of the world thinks that way, too – or else there’s no love whatever for Maryland. I’m bullish on the Wildcats, but 11.5 is asking for too much love.

Miami needs to come up with a statement game again. It might have rolled by Pitt, but it should’ve been a whole lot easier than it was. That might be what Virginia is for. The Cavaliers might be well coached, but they’re just not getting it done. It sure helped that the line went down from 15.5 to 13.5.

Go the other way on this. I know, I’m supposed to give researched opinions and thoughts, and that’s what this is … I’m picking UTSA +2.5 to beat Louisiana Tech outright. I’m not sure why I have a thing for the plucky Roadrunners even though they lost three straight, but I do. You don’t have to come along for the ride.

SMU might have the passing game, and it might be playing extremely well, but Cincinnati is a rock-solid team that should provide the defensive test the Mustangs have yet to take. That the Bearcats are getting 2.5 is a nice sweetener.

Okay, BYU. It’s time to get back to your dominant self. Texas State is better at everything except actually winning. It feels weird to not automatically take the Cougars -28.5, but Texas State has just enough fight – losing 24-21 to Boston College a few weeks ago – to come up with a few late scores. Be careful with all of this – this is the fifth straight road game for the Bobcats.

Two new head coaches, brand new season, but do you really think San Diego State is all of a sudden going to be an offensive juggernaut? It’s far better than UNLV, and the line has gone down from 16 to 14, but that’s still a too-big number for the opener.

Air Force has a game under its belt – a dominant win over Navy – and San Jose State doesn’t. The line hasn’t moved much – starting at Falcons -7 and only going to 7.5 in some places. You’re fine if this doubled. If Air Force was that sharp in the opener …
