The first four weeks of college football are in the books and if you are betting on football totals this week then use my over/under betting analysis to get an edge on your bets.
College Football Over/Under Analytics Week 5
Friday, Sep. 27
Penn State at Maryland: 58 ½
Don’t be fooled by Penn State’s 17-10 win over Pittsburgh in their last. The Nittany Lions love to put points on the scoreboard. They average 47 per. Maryland? They dropped 63 onto Syracuse a couple of games back. Over for sure.
Saturday, Sep. 28
Rutgers at Michigan: 48
Neither team seems to have a good defense. Everyone expects Michigan to blow out Rutgers. The team we saw against Wisconsin had no heart, though. So, don’t be surprised if Rutgers puts up enough points to help this go over.
Washington State at Utah: 57 ½
Utah’s defense got exposed against USC. Washington State’s offense should score 35 points with their eyes closed. Over again.
Minnesota at Purdue: 52 ½
This seems like a low total. The Gophers average 33.7 points per while allowing 27.3 points per. Is Purdue going to stop Minnesota from scoring their average? Not a chance. Is Minnesota going to stop Purdue from scoring? Not a chance. This should blow over the total by at least 11 points.
Iowa State at Baylor: 56
Baylor only scored 21 points against Rice in their last. Iowa State scored 72 versus ULM in their previous game, but this should more resemble the Cyclones 18-17 win over Iowa.
Kansas State at Oklahoma State: 64
We don’t need stats to know what’s going to happen here. Both these Big 12 squads are going to score touchdowns on almost every possession.
Mississippi State at Auburn: 48 ½
The Auburn Tigers could hold the Rebels to 10 points or less in this. Auburn prefers to take it’s time on offense, which means this should go under even though the total is less than 50.
Ohio State at Nebraska: 63
Nebraska’s defense is awful. Ohio State should score close to 50 points if not over 50 points. Nebraska will be good for 3 touchdowns, quickly making this one go over.
UCLA at Arizona: 69
UCLA beat Washington State an incredible 67-63 in Week 4. Chip Kelly decided to go back to his track meet style of football. However, Arizona held Texas Tech in check in their last game. The Wildcats might have turned the corner defensively in their previous matchup. Let’s say the Bruins have an offensive letdown after pouring it on while the Wildcats continue playing decent defense. In that scenario, we’re talking an under game.
