NCAAF Betting: ATS Picks for Week 10
This coming weekend of college football action will see some exciting things. We’ll see some matchups between ranked teams that will have some playoff ramifications, and we’ll also see the start of the Pac-12 season.
With the fifth and final Power 5 conference starting its season and some marquee games, this weekend should be the best weekend of the season up to this point. Let’s take a look at some of the top games of the upcoming week, and we’ll make some picks against the spread so you can bet on their NCAAF odds.
NCAA Football Week 10 ATS Picks
No. 1 Clemson Tigers (-6.5) at No. 4 Notre Dame Fighting Irish
This game could be the most significant game of the college football regular season. The winner of this game will have a huge advantage in the race for the College Football Playoff.
The oddsmakers think very highly of top-ranked Clemson, as it is still almost a touchdown favorite even without the services of quarterback Trevor Lawrence. The Tigers have a powerful defense, but Boston College gave everyone a blueprint on how to attack it.
Look for a steady diet of Travis Etienne Jr. in this one.
No. 4 Notre Dame has been dominant of late, but it is still not at the level of Clemson. The Tigers win by 10 and cover the spread against the Irish.
No. 8 Florida Gators vs. No. 5 Georgia Bulldogs (-4.5)
The “World’s Largest Cocktail Party” will take place in Jacksonville, Fla. This game will more than likely be for the championship of the SEC East division.
Florida’s high-powered offense will take on one of the top defenses in the country. Florida and Missouri got into a brawl during last weekend’s game, and there were numerous ejections. We could see some suspensions going into this week’s game.
Georgia is the better all-around team. Stetson Bennett will need to take care of the ball, as Florida’s defense isn’t very strong, and turning the ball over would negate how bad they are. Georgia wins by a touchdown.
No. 9 BYU Cougars (-2.5) at No. 21 Boise State Broncos
BYU is looking to make its case for a playoff spot. Many have claimed that the Cougars’ soft schedule is the reason that they’re looking so dominant.
With only three games remaining on its schedule, BYU needs to show the committee that it does belong in the conversation, and there’s no better way to do that than to beat a ranked team.
Boise State will keep it close, but BYU pulls away late and covers the spread.
Houston Cougars at No. 6 Cincinnati Bearcats (-10.5)
Cincinnati has been blowing everyone out, as it is looking to show the playoff committee that it belongs in the top four. Houston has played well at times, but when it has played stiffer competition, it has been unable to come out victorious.
Cincinnati is too good, and it will roll over the Cougars. The Bearcats win by at least two touchdowns.
Stanford Cardinal at No. 12 Oregon Ducks (-11.5)
Oregon has national championship aspirations. To get there, the Ducks are going to have to win big, as they’re only going to have seven games to impress the committee.
Oregon is expected to win the Pac-12, and it will once again have a high-powered offense. David Shaw’s teams are always well-prepared, but the Cardinal won’t have enough talent to stop the Ducks. Oregon wins by 17.
