Bet on NCAAFCollege football fans had another outstanding weekend of NCAAF betting action last week although there were not as many top shelf upsets as in previous weeks. College football handicappers saw the first NCAAF betting statement maker last Thursday as South Carolina beat #4 Ole Miss 16-10 as 4.5-point home dogs.
Many college football observers believed Ole Miss to be a NCAAF betting overlay and were proven right by a South Carolina team that may be underrated as a college football betting commodity. Michigan showed that they still have some college football growing pains to go through as they barely escaped with a 36-33 win over Indiana as 19.5-point home chalks. The Wolverines were fortunate to win the game at all and the Hoosiers proved to be a live college football dog that may continue to provide value as the season goes on.
LSU continues to be a college football overlay on the road as they barely held on to beat Mississippi State 30-26 as 14-point road chalks. LSU needed a late goal line stand to escape humiliation. Cal’s 3-42 blowout loss at Oregon was a major college football surprise as the Golden Bears were ranked higher entering the game and were 6-point road favorites. Oregon looks to be a better college football team since their loss at Boise State. Florida scored an impressive 41-7 college football win at Kentucky as 24-point chalks but the status of superstar quarterback Tim Tebow remains a concern as he left the game vomiting into a bag on a stretcher that took him to an ambulance.
Miami proved to be not ready for the big time in their 7-31 loss at Virginia Tech in a pick’em game. After losing their opener to Alabama the Hokies appear primed for a repeat at the ACC title. Speaking of Bama the Tide rolled to a 35-7 win over Arkansas as 16.5-point home chalks in a game that may heat up Head Hog Bobby Petrino’s seat.
Houston thrilled their fans with their second win over a Big 12 team as they came from behind with a late TD to beat Texas Tech 29-28 in a pick’em affair from H-Town. Houston proved for certain to be for real. USC may have beaten Washington State 27-6 but they never had a prayer at covering the 43-point spread as they may continue to struggle as an overlay for the foreseeable future.
