Last week we had a great Saturday with a 3-1 day and a +270 underdog winner. We once again go with an over, an under, a side, and an underdog play for college football. By the way, we’ve already won the Thursday game and have two Friday plays left.

Washington State at Utah

We return to play another Utah matchup after we won on their San Diego State game last week. Both of these teams are struggling to put together any type of strong offensive consistency. For Utah, expectations were high before the season, and they have yet to live up to them. Quarterback Charlie Brewer has thrown three touchdowns and three interceptions. One spot you can attack Washington State is through the air, but Brewer gives me very little confidence in Utah. Utah most likely will need to score on the ground. Now at home, the defense should get a bit of a boost and hold down a competent Washington State offense. Play the under on this game at 53.5 at -108.

Colorado at Arizona State

30, 17, 42; 56, 47, 44. Those are the collective point totals of the Colorado games and the Arizona State games this season, respectively. The total for this one is 44.5. Arizona State has a strong offensive team and shouldn’t struggle against a Colorado team that just allowed 30 points at home to Minnesota. Now Colorado travels to Arizona and has to deal with a tough running game. One thing that really could help this total go up is field position, neither team is great at protecting the ball and that could lead to great field position. Play the over at 44.5 -114.

Iowa State at Baylor

Baylor has looked really good so far this season and are at 3-0 as they return home for a matchup against a huge test in Iowa State. Baylor has racked up points and allowed only seven points in each of their last two games. The Iowa State Cyclones are a different team than Baylor has faced. With their staunch running defense, Iowa State could be taking away Baylor’s biggest offensive advantage. As long as they control the turnovers, the Cyclones should be in control of this game and win by a touchdown or more. The juice is a bit high, so monitor for line movement, but play the Cyclones at -6.5 at -132.

Kansas State at Oklahoma State

Let’s start by saying this: both teams in this matchup are good, and this really could be a coin flip of a game. Oklahoma State has the obvious advantage of being at home, and both teams have been battle-tested so far with a few close games. Kansas State has to establish the running game to have a chance to win this. Their quarterback play isn’t great, but I think there is a lot of opportunity for improvement. Oklahoma State will probably need to beat Kansas State through the air, and personally, I don’t think that Shane Illingworth is ready for that right now. This game could come down to one big play. I think Kansas State makes it and takes home the victory. Play them at +194.

  1. Regarding the Kansas State/Oklahoma State game: “and personally, I don’t think that Shane Illingworth is ready for that right now.”…Illingworth isn’t the starting QB so apparently the OK State coaches agree he isn’t ready lol. Not sure if Spencer Sanders is ready either, but he is the starting QB for OK State lol.
