College Football Conference Betting Predictions

Written by on August 27, 2014

The NCAA Football lines are out for almost every single college football game this season. After studying historical data, we’ve come up with a few possible key value bets in each one of the major conferences. The favorites are huge favorites. So, if there is anything you like in the way of a dog, make sure to jump on it. See below!

Let’s Check out the Best Early College Football Conference Betting Predictions

SEC

Was Johnny Manziel that important to Texas A&M? The Aggies will be underdogs in 5 out of their 8 conference games. So, the question is how important was Manziel to this team? There’s no question that Johnny Football was the reason for A&M’s incredible showing in the tough SEC, but the program is a good one. The key value play on the Aggies will most likely be on Oct. 11 versus Mississippi whom many college football fans predict will finish fourth in the conference.A&M could keep it within the number in road games versus Alabama and Auburn later in the season as well.

ACC

VA Tech is an 18 point dog against Ohio State on September 6. The rushing attack should be solid and the defense will be very good, like it usually is. It might be wise to look at the Hokies to keep it close versus the consensus favorite to win the Big Ten. Clemson plays Georgia in Week 1 as a 9 point dog. Is Georgia 9 points better than the Tigers? We’re not so sure. Take the Tigers to keep it close and possibly win outright.

Big Ten

The value bets in the Big Ten Conference this year surround Ohio State. The Buckeyes are such huge favorites to take home the conference title that playing against them when it comes to the spread could yield major profits. We already mentioned VA Tech, but how about the game versus Cincinnati on Sept. 27? Or, the road contest against Penn State on Oct. 25? The odds makers figure to drastically under value Cincinnati’s, the Hokies’, and Penn State’s chances in all three of those games.

Big 12

Nobody is expecting much from Texas this year, but Charlie Strong is a terrific coach. They host BYU on Sept. 6 and UCLA on Sept. 13. That’s two weeks in a row where Texas could be a dog by kickoff. UCLA in particular could be a game in which the Longhorns might excel as a huge home dog. The Bruins will be coming off of two games where they’ve spanked their opponents, Memphis and Virginia, so, expect the line to drift higher and higher until they kick it off in Austin.

Pac 12

This could be the season where Oregon football takes a drastic step backward. The Sept. 6 game versus Michigan State will be the first test for the Ducks. Sparty is no joke this season and could win that game straight up on the money line as more than a +200 unerdog. Then, the Ducks battle the Arizona Wildcats on Oct. 2. Arizona does not have the program that Oregon has yet, but coach Rich Rodriguez could get his offense to match Oregon’s offense because the Ducks’ D isn’t all that great. Think about siding with the ‘Cats in that matchup. Good luck!
