Top ATS Picks for College Football Week 8

Written by on October 17, 2017

If you like playing the underdogs in college football, chances are you cleaned up last weekend. We saw no less than four top 10 teams bite the dust, making us all believe that the Friday the 13th jinx is very much alive and well. Not only did we fail to see a lot of top teams fail to cover the spread, we also saw many of them lose straight up. It is this madness that makes college football so much fun to watch, but the question now is whether that craziness will carry over to College Football Week 8.We have already put together some SU picks for the coming weekend, but now it’s time to turn our attention to ATS selections. There are a lot of big games to choose from, so let’s take a look at the NCAAF Odds and see if we can find some winners for Week 8.

Top ATS Picks for College Football Week 8

Best NCAAF Week 8 Betting Matchups

Memphis Tigers (+3) vs. Houston Cougars

Memphis are very quietly putting together a very good season, coming into this one with a 5-1 record. While the Tigers have not had a lot of SU success versus the Cougars in their previous meetings, they have managed to go 4-2 ATS in the last 6 meetings with them. With the spread set at 3 points for this one, you are essentially looking at the winner being the team that covers, and I like Memphis to come up with the win. I like the Tigers to win this one by a TD, so you may also want to look at playing them as an SU underdog.

Latest Betting Trends for College Football Week 8

  • Memphis is 2-7-1 ATS in its last 10 games
  • Memphis is 1-4 ATS in its last 5 games at home
  • Tigers are 3-6 ATS in their last 9 games on the road
  • Houston is 4-10 ATS in its last 14 games
  • Houston is 3-6 ATS in its last 9 games at home
  • Cougars are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games when playing Memphis

Iowa State Cyclones (+6) vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders

This is another game where I think that the underdog can win SU as opposed to just staying close and covering the spread. The Cyclones put themselves on the map a couple of weeks ago with a huge win over the Oklahoma Sooners and continued to roll with another big win last week. Texas Tech may still be reeling after gassing a huge lead over West Virginia last weekend, and you really need to wonder what their mindset will be for this one. Iowa State is a healthy 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 games, and would not be surprised to see them improve on that already impressive record.Iowa State should be one of your ATS Picks for College Football Week 8.

  • Iowa State is 8-1-1 ATS in its last 10 games

  • Texas Tech is 5-1-1 ATS in its last 7 games
  • Texas Tech is 4-0-1 ATS in its last 5 games at home

Louisville Cardinals (+6 ½) vs. Florida State

As you have probably noticed, we are going with an underdog theme this weekend, and I think we have a live one in this game. Yes, Louisville has succumbed to back to back losses, but even when they drop games, they put big points up on the board. The Florida State Seminoles look like a team on life support, as they have never really recovered from a start to the season that saw them lose to Alabama and then miss games due to Hurricanes in the state. They look like a team that has already written this season off, and that should mean that the Cardinals will be able to take advantage of that malaise.

Latest Betting Trends for College Football Week 8

  • Louisville is 0-5 ATS in its last 5 games
  • Louisville is 1-5-1 ATS in its last 7 games on the road
  • Florida State is 0-4-1 ATS in its last 5 games

UCF Knights (-8) vs. Navy Midshipmen

We can’t really finish up our Week 8 college football ATS picks without taking at least one favorite. This is actually a very good match-up, with Central Florida coming in unbeaten and Navy only having a single loss. The stat that jumps off the page this season though is that the UCF Knights are a perfect 5-0 ATS. Navy is coming into this one after losing their first game of the season last weekend, and I think they are in tough again here. I like UCF to continue their unbeaten run, and see them winning this one by double digits.

Latest Betting Trends for College Football Week 8

  • Central Florida is 5-0 ATS in its last 5 games
  • Central Florida is 6-2 ATS in its last 8 games on the road
  • Navy is 5-2 ATS in its last 7 games
  • Navy is 2-4-1 ATS in its last 7 games at home
