2019 College Football Week 8 ATS Betting Picks

Written by on October 15, 2019

Heading into College Football Week 8, we have been talking about how we are getting into the heart of the conference schedules in college football and that we should begin to expect some surprises. We got the biggest one of the season last weekend, with the South Carolina Gamecocks going into Athens and taking down the #3 ranked Georgia Bulldogs.

That result has turned the rankings on their head, but it will almost certainly not be the last such surprise that we see before the regular season comes to an end. It’s now time to look ahead to Week 8 of the college football betting action, starting with our ATS picks for the week.

2019 College Football Week 8 ATS Betting Picks

Houston Cougars (-22) at Connecticut Huskies

After winning their opening game of the season versus Wagner, the Connecticut Huskies have gone into a tailspin, losing 5 straight games. It’s not just that they have been losing, they have been routinely getting blown out. This is a team that is now just 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games.

The Cougars are 3-3 ATS on the season, but they have not had a lot of joy versus teams from the AAC, going just 1-5 in their last 6 outings. Given how the Huskies have been bleeding points, that trend might change this weekend. It is worth noting that the Cougars are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games in Week 8.

  • Cougars are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against an opponent in the American Athletic Conference conference
  • Cougars are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games played in week 8
  • Huskies are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games
  • Huskies are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games played in October

New Mexico Lobos at Wyoming Cowboys (-19 ½)

These are the types of games that are commonly ignored by a lot of bettors, with many choosing to focus on the bigger games on the schedule. There is definitely money to be made here, though, as I think this looks like a really solid ATS opportunity.

The Lobos are coming into this one having covered just once in their last 9 games. The Wyoming Cowboys are 6-2 ATS in their last 8, but perhaps more importantly, they are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 outings versus teams from the Mountain West.

College Football Week 8 Betting Trends

  • Lobos are 1-8 ATS in their last 9 games
  • Lobos are 8-4 ATS in their last 12 games against Wyoming
  • Cowboys are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games
  • Cowboys are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games against an opponent in the Mountain West conference

LSU Tigers (-19) at Mississippi State Bulldogs

The team that benefitted the most from the Georgia Bulldogs loss was almost certainly the LSU Tigers, who moved all the way up to the #2 spot after knocking off Florida last weekend. They will be back in SEC action this weekend, heading out on the road to face the Mississippi State Bulldogs.

LSU is one of the favorites for College Football Week 8.

While the Tigers have long been known for their defense, it is the offense that is carrying them this season, helping LSU go 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 games. LSU is also 12-3-1 in their last 16 games versus teams from the SEC, so they look like a very good bet here.

NCAAF Week 8 Betting Trends

  • Tigers are 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 games against an opponent in the Southeast conference
  • Tigers are 11-2-1 ATS in their last 14 games played in October
  • Bulldogs are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games
  • Bulldogs are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games played on a Saturday

Texas A&M Aggies (-6 ½) at Ole Miss Rebels

We head back to the SEC for another pick and another intriguing battle, of which there seems to be one every single week in this conference. Texas A&M has seen their progress stall a little this season, going just 3-3 SU through their opening 6 games of the season.

While they will be on the road here at a place where they don’t normally see a lot of joy against the spread, I think they turn things around versus the Rebels. The Aggies are a solid 13-7 ATS in their last 20 games and I like them to improve on that record on Saturday.

College Football Week 8 Betting Trends

  • Aggies are 13-7 ATS in their last 20 games
  • Aggies are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games played in week 8
  • Rebels are 5-12 ATS in their last 17 games
  • Rebels are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against an opponent in the Southeast conference
