5 College Football Win Totals to Bet on and 5 You Need to Avoid
Bet These Five
Penn State 9.5 WinsIf you didn’t know, Penn State has a legitimate pair of legitimate Heisman Trophy candidates – plenty of talent – and a bunch of motivation after getting the short end of the stick come playoff time despite winning the Big Ten. Right now, I’m thinking running back Saquon Barkley and quarterback Trace McSorley won’t leave anything to chance as they win what looks like 11 games to me in 2017. Penn State should get off to a perfect 6-0 start by beating Akron, Pitt and Georgia State at home in the first three weeks of the season before winning at Iowa, back at home against Indiana and at suddenly dangerous Northwestern.
Washington 9.5 WinsAfter winning a dozen games to reach the CFB Playoff last year, I’m thinking Chris Petersen’s Washington Huskies are a lock to reach the 10-win mark in 2017 at the very least. Washington will blow out Rutgers, Montana and Fresno State in its first three games before sneaking past Colorado on the road in Week 4. After that, the Huskies will win at Oregon State, at home win over Cal and at Arizona State. Two difficult tough home wins over UCLA and Oregon should follow before the Huskies win a very difficult road matchup at Stanford.
Alabama 10.5 WinsThe Crimson Tide have reached the double-digit win mark in nine straight seasons under Nick Saban while winning 11 games or more in each of the last six seasons. The only potential losses I see on Alabama’s 2017 schedule come in their opener at Florida State if you want me to be honest about it. ’m thinking one loss (if that) is what lies ahead for the Crimson Tide in 2017. Play the Over people!
Pick: Over 10.5 Wins
