What a week!
After an up-and-down season with our college football picks, we hit gold last weekend with an undefeated day of bets, winning six and pushing one to get us back in the black.
While it would be nice to bask in the glory of last week a bit longer, there’s no time — another week of college football is already upon us, with the stakes being raised once again as we inch closer to the playoff.
Take a look below for our seven best bets of the Week 10 college football slate (* indicates home team).
LAST WEEK: 6-0-1
Michigan State (-2.5) over Maryland*
Michigan State has found some stability after a fairly unpredictable season, while the Maryland Terrapins are still dealing with a chaotic off-the-field situation surrounding the controversial non-firing and subsequent firing of head coach DJ Durkin. Spartans roll.
Penn State (+10.5) over Michigan*
Michigan is the Big Ten’s best hope at getting a representative into the college football playoff, meaning they’re absolutely due to stumble in the near future. It’s the curse of all Big Ten front-runners, and this year, the Nittany Lions get to play spoiler. Even if the Wolverines find a way to win, 10 points feel like too big of a number.
LSU* (+15) over Alabama
Alabama’s run of covers has been a gamblers dream, as those who have bet the Crimson Tide first half lines this season have been raking in free cash week after week after week.
Honestly, this is a play on what my wish for reality. College football is at its best when chaos reigns and the most chaotic outcome possible is that Alabama loses and upsets the entire playoff picture. I want to believe in LSU and Death Valley and Ed Orgeron.
That said, Nick Saban and his insane attention to detail have a way of bursting my bubble every time I bet against the Tide.
