Everyone has aspirations of winning a national championship. As the new year starts, everyone thinks that they have a shot at winning it all. Today we are going to preview some of college football betting top teams that aren’t going to live up to all of the hype that has come their way in the preseason.

Predicting College Football Biggest Betting Upsets in 2019

Texas Longhorns – Over/Under 9.5 Wins

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 over Georgia. The betting world sees 9-10 wins from Texas. Not going to happen this year. They go under 9.5.

Auburn Tigers – Over/Under 8 Wins

Gus Malzahn is under pressure this year. Auburn, which enters the season rated 16th, hasn’t lived up to expectations the last couple of years, and Malzahn is on the hot seat. Although the Tigers should have a solid defensive unit, the schedule is just too tough to overlook.

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. This is going to be a tough year for the Auburn faithful. Take the UNDER here!

Ohio State Buckeyes: Over/Under 10.5 Wins

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.

The Big 10 is a very balanced conference this year. With road games at Northwestern and Nebraska, and games against Michigan, Michigan State, and Wisconsin, there are at least two losses on this schedule. Although this team could very well be the most talented team in the Big 10, we just can’t see the Buckeyes being the powerhouse that they were under Urban Meyer. Take the under 10.5 wins.
