Bet College Football Odds Week 4 ESPN Games

Bowling Green Falcons at No. 19 Wisconsin Badgers

When: Sept. 20, 12:00 pm ET
TV: ESPN2
Betting Line: Wisconsin -27

Analysis: Bowling Green is 2 and 1 against the spread, but they haven’t faced a team nearly as formidable as Wisconsin, much less on the road, this season. Which team wins against the spread should come down to trends. Bowling Green is 6 and 1 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up win while Wisconsin is 10 and 1 ATS in their last 11 following a bye week, but 4 and 9 ATS in their last 13 non-conference games.

Pick: Bowling Green +27

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at Virginia Tech Hokies

When: Sept. 20, 12:00 pm ET
TV: ESPN
Betting Line: Virginia Tech -8

Analysis: The Hokies had a great chance of continuing up the ranked ladder after their stunning 35 to 21 destruction of Ohio State in Columbus in Week 2, but they failed miserably. As 9.5 points favorites, VA Tech lost straight up to Eastern Carolina 28 to 21. The trends point to a Yellow Jacket cover since Georgia Tech is 4 and 0 ATS in the last 4 meetings at Virginia Tech, the underdog is 7 and 1 in the last 8 meetings between these two and the road team is 4 and 0 in the last 4 meetings between these two.

Pick:Georgia Tech +8

Virginia Cavaliers at No. 21 BYU Cougars

When:Sept. 20, 3:30 pm ET
TV:ESPN
Betting Line:BYU -14

Analysis: The Cougars had a 23 to 0 lead on Houston, but they couldn’t keep it going and ended up winning by only 8 points, 33 to 25. The trends in this game are telling football handicappers to yet again take the points. Virginia is 5 and 0 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 4 and 0 ATS versus a team with a winning record while BYU is 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. Even with the trends, though, the Cougars look formidable at home.   

Pick: BYU -14

Mississippi State Rebels at No. 8 LSU Tigers

When:Sept. 20, 7:00 pm ET
TV:ESPN
Betting Line:LSU -10

Analysis: LSU has covered the spread in all three of its games this season. Not only that, but the Tigers haven’t given up a single point in its last two contests. Mississippi State is also undefeated but should be up against it both straight-up and against the spread in this game. The head-to-head trends clearly favor LSU who is 13 and 3 ATS in the last 16 matchups. The Rebels are 2 and 5 ATS in the last 7 games in Baton Rouge and the favorite is 4 and 0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.

Pick: LSU -10

No. 2 Oregon Ducks at Washington State Cougars

When:Sept. 20, 10:30 pm ET
TV:ESPN
Betting Line:Oregon -23.5

Analysis: Oregon beat Washington State 62 to 38 last year. The trends tell sports book bettors that the outcome this Saturday should be about the same. Oregon is a stunning 13 and 3 against the spread in their last 16 road games. The Ducks are also 5 and 0 ATS in their last 5 games on the road versus a team with a losing home record. Washington State is 3 and 12 ATS in its last 15 after winning by more than 20 points in its previous game. That win was against Portland State. Washington State just doesn’t look like a very good team at this point. Oregon should roll.

Pick: Oregon -23
