Posted by Eric Williams on Tuesday,November 1, 2016 11:16, EST in

If you’re looking for some Week 10 underdogs that are offering some legitimate value as teams capable of covering the college football betting line against their favored opponents, then you’ve come to the right place.

Now, with a trio of Week 10 ‘barking’ dogs all looking like excellent selections let’s get started.

In Depth Analysis On The College Football Highlighted Underdog Picks For Week 10

 

 

No. 5 Louisville at Boston College

When: 12:00 PM ET, Saturday, November 5, 2016
Where: Alumni Stadium, Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts
Odds: Louisville -25

Analysis: While I don’ think there’s any way that Louisville Cardinals (7-1 SU, 4-3-1 ATS) fails to win this Week 10 matchup against Boston College (4-4 SU, 3-4-1 ATS), there’s no way that I can pick Lamar Jackson and company to take out the eagles by whopping 26 points, seeing as how they’ve won two of their last three games by 10 points or less, including Saturday’s narrow win over Virginia.

Boston College has a very good defense that gives up just 23.0 points per game and I believe they’ll find a way to keep the final score well inside the three-touchdown plus spread. Louisville is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 games while Boston College is just 3-7-1 ATS in its last 11 games at home. Still, I say back the Eagles to cover the high spread and 46 percent of public bettors agree!

Pick: Louisville 38 Boston College 21

Vanderbilt at No. 12 Auburn

When: 12:00 PM ET, Saturday, November 5, 2016
Where: Jordan Hare Stadium, Auburn, Alabama
Odds: Auburn -24.5

Analysis: The Vanderbilt Commodores (4-4 SU, 4-4 ATS) have no real chance of pulling off the outright upset over the superior Auburn Tigers (6-2 SU, 7-1 ATS) in this Week 10 SEC showdown, but I agree with the 47 percent of public bettors that like the Commodores to cover the college football betting line as a three-touchdown plus underdog.

Auburn is playing their best football of the season and they looked rock-solid in their 40-29 win against Ole Miss this past weekend, but Vanderbilt has gone 15-8 ATS in its last 23 games on the road while also going 19-7 ATS in their last 26 games following an ATS loss. Conversely, the Tigers have managed to go just 1-7 ATS in their last eight games in the month of November. It’s going to be a close call, but for me, Vandy is the right pick to cover the high spread.

Pick: Auburn 35 Vanderbilt 23

Maryland at No. 2 Michigan

When: 3:30 PM ET, Saturday, November 5, 2016
Where: Michigan Stadium, Ann Arbor, Michigan
Odds: Michigan -31

Analysis: The Maryland Terrapins (5-3 SU, 3-5 ATS) don’t stand a chance of upsetting No. 2 Michigan (8-0 SU, 4-4 ATS) when they meet in Week 10 on Saturday, but the Terps are my pick to easily cover the college football betting line Michigan took out Michigan State 32-23 on Saturday while Maryland got humbled in its crushing 42-36 loss against Indiana this past weekend. For this contest, I’m going with a Terrapins team that has gone 13-5 ATS in its L/18 games following an SU loss.

Michigan has faced a ton of overly high point spreads, but I’m thinking this one is a few points too high for the Wolverines to cover. Michigan is 2-4 ATS in its last six games and 1-4 ATS in its last five home games against a team with a winning road record. The Wolverines win outright, but Maryland narrowly covers!

Pick: Michigan 31 Maryland 14
