Bet on NCAAFCollege football odds handicappers will have one of the best college football betting lineups of the year on the board this week as the stretch run begins. College football odds begin with #1 Florida, who opened as a whopping 33-point college football betting home favorite over struggling Vanderbilt.
Vandy might be a live dog with the college football odds, however, as they have gotten the college football betting cash in 5 out of their last 7 trips to The Swamp. #2 Texas will likely keep their online betting streak alive as they host Central Florida after back-to-back Big 12 blowout road wins at Missouri and Oklahoma State. The Horns may be a poor value with the college football odds, however, as they have gotten the cash in just 1 out of their last 6 home games while UCF has covered 5 straight road games.
One of the best games on the college football odds board will be the SEC showdown between #9 LSU and #3 Alabama as former LSU coach Nick Saban again takes on his former team as host. The Crimson Tide has failed to beat the college football odds in 6 consecutive home games against the Bayou Bengals.
The 7th ranked Oregon Ducks will face a potentially huge trap game this weekend at Stanford after their epic blowout win over the college football odds last week against USC. Stanford is 5-3 both straight up and against the spread and has beaten the college football odds in 5 straight home games.
The #8 Iowa Hawkeyes will try and extend their undefeated season at home against a pesky Northwestern team that is 5-4 straight up. The Wildcats have covered the college football odds in 4 out of their last 6 trips to Iowa.
The 6th ranked Horned Frogs of TCU will travel to San Diego State to take on an Aztec team that is 4-4 and with bowl aspirations. The host has payed out gamblers 4 straight times in this head to head series.
The #4 Cincinnati Bearcats lead the Big East and host a emotionally wrecked Connecticut team coming off back-to-back heartbreaking losses in the final seconds that followed the tragic death of defensive back Japser Howard. UConn has covered 6 out of their last 7 on the road, however, and is 6-1 against the spread this year. Georgia Tech has climbed to #10 in the polls and will host a potentially dangerous Wake Forest team in an ACC showdown. Tech has covered the spread in 4 out of their last 6 games against the Demon Deacons.
Oklahoma and Nebraska will renew one of college football’s great historic rivalries. OU has lost just 1 out of their last 9 against the spread on the road and has covered 4 out of their last 6 against the Huskers. USC will try and pick up the pieces to their season at Arizona State while Tulsa hosts Houston in an outstanding mid-major CUSA showdown.
