College Football Top Over/Under Of The Week (Nov. 5th)
It can be tough to find value in college football betting, especially in the weeks where the big guns are going against lesser opposition. Therefore, I like to ditch the straight up bets in favor of the OVER/UNDER when college football Saturday’s roll around. The beauty of playing the point total is that you can be in profit by winning around 53% of your bets. I have looked at the upcoming action for Week 10, and have selected a few games that I think might be winners in the OVER/UNDER. Let’s take a closer look at those games to see if we can turn a profit.
Here’s A Closer Look At The College Football Top Over/Under Of The Week (Nov. 5th)
Texas A&M Aggies at Mississippi State Bulldogs – OVER 61.5
Everything in this match-up would appear to point to the UNDER, but I don’t think that is how this one is going to play out. The Mississippi State Bulldogs have been leaking points for the past two weeks, and have seen both of their previous outings go OVER in a big way. The last time the Aggies hit the road, it was against another SEC opponent in the form of Alabama, and that one too went OVER. I see this one turning into a shootout, and think the total will be closer to 70.
Indiana Hoosiers at Rutgers Scarlet Knights – OVER 58
You look at the previous two meetings between these teams, and you must wonder why the point total is so low. The combined for 68 points in 2014, and 107 points last season, and there is no reason to believe that they won’t light up the scoreboard again this weekend. Indiana are going to put up some points against a porous Rutgers defense, and that is going to force the Knights to start chucking the ball all over the field.
Vanderbilt Commodores at Auburn Tigers – OVER 45
Historically speaking, this has been a match-up that has delivered low-scoring games, with the OVER/UNDER going 1-4 in the last 5 meetings between these two. The difference here is the way that Auburn have been playing offensively over the past 4 games. They are on fire, and have tallied 192 points in their last 4 games. Yes, the Commodores have been good defensively, but they are not up to the task of slowing the Tigers down.
Wisconsin Badgers at Northwestern Wildcats – UNDER 41
This looks like a game destined to be decided by 7 points or less, as that just seems to be the way that things go between these two. The last three times these teams have hooked up, they have combined for 41 points or less, and the number has been dropping each year. Last season they combined for just 20 points. More of the same this Saturday, I believe.
Maryland Terrapins at Michigan Wolverines – OVER 54
The one things that the unbeaten Michigan Wolverines have not done this season is show any sort of mercy to their opponents. They seem quite happy to run up the score and play offensive football to the finish, and that could mean big trouble for the Terrapins this weekend. Michigan have taken their OVER/UNDER record to 6-2 this season, but more importantly, they are a perfect 2-0 O/U when they are favored by 21.5 to 31 points, which they are this weekend.
