College Football Straight Up Moneyline Upset Alerts Week 10

NC State +280 at Wake Forest

Wake Forest is favored over NC State for a reason. Few teams can score as quickly as the Demon Deacons. But, Wake Forest’s style, get in as many possessions as possible, can sometimes work against them. The NC State Wolfpack might have a shot if they slow the game down and use their rushing attack, one that averages 156.6 yards per. 

Utah at Washington +150

Utah is a good team. They might be the best team in the Pac 12. However, the last time they faced a talented conference rival on the road, they failed. USC pummeled the Utes 30-23. Since the loss, Utah has been great, but Washington gets the Utes at home on Saturday. The Huskies are tough to beat at home.

SMU +165 at Memphis

These two squads are similar. The main difference? SMU is undefeated and up until a 34-31 victory over Houston in their last, had gone 6-1 ATS. Now, the Mustangs are 6-2 ATS. They’ll upset Memphis on Saturday. 

Oregon at USC +165

Say what you want about Oregon. The Ducks keep winning games. The only team to have beaten the Ducks this season are the very good Auburn Tigers. Even though the Ducks have been winning, they haven’t come close to impressing in their last two. They gave up 31 points to Washington two games ago and 35 to Washington State in their last. USC should, not can, should win this matchup in Week 10.

Nebraska at Purdue +110

How much better is Nebraska than Purdue? Are the Cornhuskers so much better that they should be favored over the Boilermakers in a road tilt? Probably not. It’s always a good idea to back the home team getting moneyline odds when the two participants are so close together in terms of talent. 

Boston College +130 at Syracuse

Yes, Syracuse is at home, but the Orange have been a huge disappointment this season. They’re only 3-5 straight up with losses to Maryland, Clemson, North Carolina State, Pittsburgh, and Florida State. Boston College isn’t as good as Pittsburgh. They can’t touch Clemson. But, they are as good as Maryland, North Carolina State, and, maybe, even Florida State. So, the Eagles offer value on the moneyline.

Houston Texans vs. Jacksonville Jaguars +110

Once again, the Houston Texans’ top defensive player is hurt. JJ Watt is out for the season. That’s a massive blow to a Houston Texans’ squad that’s battling the Indianapolis Colts for first place in the AFC South.

Jacksonville has quietly turned into a decent football team. They’re only 4-4 straight up but have really turned it on in their last couple of games. They beat Cincinnati 27-17 and the New York Jets 29-15. No doubt, Houston has the better offense.

Unfortunately for the Texans and their fans, the Jags can control things with their excellent rushing attack. Jags win SU as home dogs.

New York Jets at Miami Dolphins +205

The Miami Dolphins have been desperately close in a couple of games this season. Miami almost beat the horrible Washington Redskins. They played the Buffalo Bills tough on Oct. 20 in a 21-31 loss that was much closer than many thought it would be.

The Dolphins only need to try as hard as they have to beat the terrible New York Jets. NYJ’s quarterback is “seeing ghosts” on the football field. That alone makes the Jets a tough team to back. Not only that, but the Jets just don’t have what it takes to shut the door on opponents. Yes, the Dolphins probably are the worst team in the history of the NFL. But, they play a squad on Sunday that simply doesn’t care to win football games. So, expect the Fins to get their first, and maybe only, “W” of the season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers +240 at Seattle Seahawks

It’s hard to go against a team like the Seattle Seahawks. Few teams in the NFL have a winning culture the way the Emerald City Hawks do. Then again, Seattle’s NFL MVP candidate quarterback hasn’t been his usual self.

Russell Wilson failed to impress in a 27-20 win over the Atlanta Falcons. Wilson only threw for 182 yards and 2 touchdowns. What’s really disturbing is how the Seahawks allowed Matt Schaub to throw for 460 yards and a TD.

Tampa quarterback Jameis Winston only must prevent from throwing interceptions for the Buccaneers to keep this one close. If Winston has one of those good days, Tampa could pull off the moneyline upset.

New England Patriots at Baltimore Ravens +165

New England coach Bill Belichick came out on Monday and said that Ravens’ quarterback Lamar Jackson would “be a problem.” Bill knows that Jackson is one of the most challenging players to defend against in the NFL.

Lamar and the rest of the Ravens had a full week to prepare for this game. New England’s defense has so far been unbreakable. Let’s be honest, though, the Pats haven’t battled a good team yet this season. In fact, New England’s opponents are a combined 13-36 straight up this season. Go with the Ravens.

NFL Over/Under Point Projections Week 9

Detroit Lions at Oakland Raiders: 51 ½

Detroit averages 25.7 points while allowing 26.6. Oakland is good for 21.6 while allowing 27.4. Although on paper, it sure looks as if this one could go over, it’s difficult to expect the Oakland Raiders and Detroit Lions to account for 52 points.

The Raiders’ defense is improving while the Lions’ defense can be one of the top units in the NFL. Expect Chucky Gruden to hand the ball to rookie Josh Jacobs all day. The two teams could account for around 45 points, but that looks like the ceiling.

Cleveland Browns at Denver Broncos: 43

The Browns have a great offense. Can it get going against one of the better defenses in the NFL? Probably not if the Broncos play their typical 3-yards and a cloud of dust offense. There’s hope for those who want Denver to open things up, though. Quarterback Joe Flacco had choice words for the Broncos’ play-calling after yet another close loss. This time, Denver dropped a game 13-15 on the road to the Indianapolis Colts.

Don’t be surprised if Vic Fangio and the coaching staff opens things up on Sunday. If they do, Baker Mayfield and the Browns’ offense will be more than happy to play in a fast, track meet, like contest.

Indianapolis Colts at Pittsburgh Steelers: 43 ½

There was a time when Colts versus Steelers would blow over any total odds makers wanted to set. In those days, the Colts had a quarterback named Peyton Manning, throwing the pigskin to a dude name Reggie Wayne. On the other sideline, a fella named Big Ben Roethlisberger lit up the Colts’ defense by tossing the football to Hines Ward. Then, Andrew Luck started throwing to T.Y. Hilton and Big Ben threw it to Antonio Brown.

Things have changed big time. The Colts’ quarterback is Jacoby Brissett, while the Steelers’ quarterback is Mason Rudolph. This goes Under.

Dallas Cowboys at New York Giants: 48

Saquon Barkley had a great game for the New York Giants in Week 8. He rushed for 64 yards and had 8 catches for 79 yards and a TD. Barkley should post decent numbers on Monday night. If he does, the Giants will score some points.

Dallas will have no trouble scoring at least 28 against the Giants’ defense. NYG can’t stop any team they face. They definitely can’t stop one of the top offenses in the league. Expect this one to go Over.
