Posted by Derrick Harper on July 23, 2019 in

College football season is just around the corner. The pre-season rankings have been released, and the debates have begun. Is a team overrated or underrated? Let’s take a look at five teams that are overrated that can win you some NCAAF Betting money.

5 Overrated College Football Teams you Can Bet on this Season

Texas Longhorns

Some considered the Longhorns to be a bit of disappointment heading into the bowl season. But after the beating that the Longhorns put on the Georgia Bulldogs, everyone forgot about the regular season and began touting the 2019 Longhorns as a national championship contender.

In a conference known for its high octane offenses, Texas will have one of the better defenses in the conference. However, will that be enough to lead the Longhorns to some tough road victories?

Texas travels to West Virginia, Iowa State, and Baylor. All three places are very tough places to play. And let’s not forget the Red River Rivalry game that is played at a neutral site. Even with the loss of Kyler Murray, Oklahoma will still have one of the best offenses in the country. Led by Alabama transfer Jalen Hurts, the Sooners will still be a point-scoring machine.

Another potential stumbling block is LSU. This will be a home game for the Longhorns, but LSU will be tough to beat early in the season.

The strength of the Longhorns schedule is hard to overlook. Many people will overvalue the victory of Georgia. The oddsmakers have set the over/under win total at 9.5. Take the under on this one.

Auburn Tigers

Gus Malzahn is under pressure this year. Auburn, which enters the season rated 22nd, hasn’t lived up to expectations the last couple of years, and Malzahn is on the hot seat. With this year’s opening game against Oregon, and a very rough SEC schedule including games at LSU, Texas A & M, and Florida, the Tigers could be in trouble. Factor in games against Georgia and Alabama, and we can’t see the Tigers getting to 8 wins. UNDER!

Texas A & M Aggies

This will be year 2 of the Jimbo Fisher era, and the Aggies enter the season ranked 10th. Although he has done a great job of building this program back up, he’ll still have some stumbling blocks. The Aggies schedule is brutal. They’ll play four teams that finished rated in the top seven in the final poll last season. With games against Alabama and Clemson, this schedule will be very tough for Fisher and Company to overcome. They should come under 7.5.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Everyone loves to hate the 9th rated Irish. Even though last year’s team made the playoffs, they lost a lot of key players from that team. Notre Dame will have capable players to fill those spots, but they don’t have the four and five-star players that Clemson and Alabama have.

Notre Dame travels to Georgia this year. Georgia has the more talented roster and will be out for revenge. The Irish also travel to Ann Arbor this year to play the Michigan Wolverines. This will be another tough game for the Irish.

So we’ve found two potential losses. In looking at the rest of the schedule, all of the rest of the games are winnable for the Irish, but they’ll stumble somewhere. Take the under 9.5.

Ohio State Buckeyes

The 5th rated Buckeyes enter the season missing one huge piece, Urban Meyer. The Buckeyes lost a lot of talent from last year’s team, including Dwayne Haskins and Nick Bosa. With many looking at Michigan as the cream of the crop in the Big 10, is it finally the Wolverines year to oust the Buckeyes? We’re not sure how the new coaching staff will handle things. There are at least two losses on this schedule. Take under 10.5.
