Another week of the college football season is upon us. Once again, Top Bet has come up with some spreads that will be tough to pick.
This week there are some very intriguing games to choose from, including Florida-LSU and Oregon-Washington. Just because they are intriguing does not mean they are easy to pick.
Here are the five best college football teams to bet on this week:
Washington Huskies (+14.5)
(Oregon Ducks @ Washington Huskies: 4PM ET)
Washington proved just how talented it is by hanging with Stanford for four quarters and outgaining the Cardinal in total offense.
Oregon has covered or pushed in every game this season. This is the first time all year the Ducks have not been the favorite by at least 26.5 points.
The Huskies have covered four of five games and came within a point of covering at Illinois.
(Wisconsin Badgers @ Northwestern Wildcats vs.3:30 PM ET)
Northwestern is another Top 25 team that is a double-digit underdog against an unranked opponent.
Wisconsin is tough to beat at home. The Badgers have covered in all three home games and have covered or pushed in all five contests. They are also 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games.
This week the Badgers take on a much underrated Northwestern team. The Wildcats have been terrific on the road, going 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games
The key to this game will be the rushing attack of Wisconsin against the two-headed monster of Kain Colter and Trevor Siemian at quarterback for Northwestern. Wisconsin will need to control the time of possession and keep the talented Northwestern quarterbacks off the field.
(Florida Gators @ LSU Tigers 3:30 PM ET)
It is all about offense so far in the SEC this season. One team that has not seemed to buy into that is Florida.
The Gators still possess one of the strongest defenses in the entire country. The group is only allowing 12.2 points a night. That has been enough to keep them in games with a struggling offense this season. Florida is only averaging 25 points-per-game, ranking 93rd in the nation.
LSU has been just the opposite. The Tigers are putting up 45.5 points a game, ranking ninth in the nation, while allowing nearly 25 points.
Florida has some luck around the LSU community, as it is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 meetings in Baton Rouge. The key will be the play of quarterback Tyler Murphy. However, LSU is on a roll, going for 5-1 SU in its last 6 games
Texas A&M Aggies
(Texas A&M Aggies @ Ole Miss Rebels 8:30 PM ET)
Texas A&M is 5-0 SU in its last 5 games on the road.
SEC play is just heating up for both of these schools. It appears these two teams are headed in opposite directions. Too bad for one of these schools, it is not headed in the right direction.
Ole Miss has lost two straight games and has been average defensively with only rank 85th offensively, averaging 27.2 points a game. They are going to need to score way more points than that to put Johnny Manziel and company away. Fortunately for them, they are going back to the comforts of Vaught–Hemingway Stadium, where the Rebels are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games at home.
Texas A&M has scored over 40 points in every game. And when a team has a potent offense, they give themselves more chances of winning, especially on the road. The Aggies are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games on the road.
(Oklahoma Sooners @ Texas Longhorns 12 PM ET)
The Red River Rivalry has arrived once again as Oklahoma and Texas battle for the Golden Hat this weekend in Dallas.
Starting quarterback David Ash will not play for Texas. Instead, Case McCoy will get his third start of the season. Texas has been up-and-down all season long. The Longhorns will be ready to play for their head coach, Mack Brown. Brown is firmly on the hot seat. A win here could help him save his job. Texas is 13-6 SU in its last 19 games.
Even though Oklahoma struggled last week against TCU, the Sooners have a talented defense and a solid running game. And so far, they are undefeated, going 5-0 SU in their last 5 games.
