NCAAF Betting: Top Games to Must Wager On Week 4

Posted by Derrick Harper on September 20, 2021 in

We’ve made it to Week 4 of the college football season. Week 3 saw a lot of great games and some heavy favorites that did not cover the spreads. We’ll see if that trend continues in Week 4. Here are some early predictions for the upcoming slate of college football games so you can get ready to place your bets against their NCAAF odds.

Expert Predictions for College Football Week 4 Must Watch Matches

Rutgers Scarlet Knights @ Michigan Wolverines (-19.5)

Michigan has looked good early on in their two victories over Western Michigan and Washington. Their average margin of victory over their two opponents is 27 points. Michigan finally seems to have found an offensive identity, and it’s one that matches up well with head coach Jim Harbaugh. They have found their running game, and the defense has looked like it can hold up its end of the bargain.

Greg Schiano is rebuilding the Rutgers program, and he still has a long way to go. They’re 3-0 on the season, but their wins have come against Temple, Syracuse, and Delaware. None of those schools have the talent level that Michigan has.

This could finally be the year that Harbaugh and his Wolverines get to the top of the Big 10. We shall see. This is the first step for them. We see them beating Rutgers by at least three touchdowns in the Big House.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish @ Wisconsin Badgers (-6)

Notre Dame hasn’t looked very strong in their first two victories of the season. They gave up a huge second half lead and had to go into overtime against Florida State. They struggled against Toledo at home in a three-point victory. 

Wisconsin lost to Penn State at home 16-10, but Penn State is a much stronger opponent than Florida State or Toledo. They’ll try to keep the ball on the ground and make Notre Dame’s defense stop the run. Florida State was able to gain a lot of yards running the ball against Marcus Freeman’s defense. We’ll see how they fare against a strong Wisconsin offensive line.

Wisconsin transfer Jack Coan will lead the Irish into Madison. We know that he’ll be pumped up for this one.

We like Wisconsin here. It’s going to be a tough, low-scoring game, but we like them to beat the Irish by a touchdown.

Colorado State Rams @ Iowa Hawkeyes (-23)

Don’t look now, but the Hawkeyes could be on the verge of making a playoff run. After beating Iowa State, the Hawkeyes look like a team that could be a problem. Defensively, the Hawkeyes can stop anyone. On the offensive side of the ball, they have a very strong offensive line, and they’ll run the ball down the opposition’s throat. 

Even though they started off slow against Kent State last weekend, the Hawkeye offense kicked it into gear and ran away with the game, compiling over 400 yards of offense. We look for the same thing to happen in this one. Iowa will start out slow but will get things going and will take it to the Rams. While 23 points may be too big of a number in the eyes of some, we think that Iowa will cover.
