Who else agrees that the best part of college football is the high-scoring unpredictably which makes betting the over/under odds on college football totals all the more exciting!
College Football Totals Over/Under Projections Week 6
Northwestern at Nebraska: 54 ½
Conflicting trends regarding the total in this matchup. Two trends stand out that point to this one going under, though. The under is 4-0 in Nebraska’s last 4 home games. The under is 13-6-1 in Northwestern’s last 20 games following an ATS victory. Nebraska’s offense was horrific in the loss to Ohio State while the Wildcats will want to play ball control in this matchup. Under it is!
Pittsburgh at Duke: 48
Duke can light up the scoreboard. Pitt’s defense is as reliable as it gets. Pittsburgh can play fast, though. Check out the 35-34 win over UCF. Unless Duke decides to break out with the wishbone, the Panthers will play the Dookies’ style. That points to the game going OVER.
Oregon State at UCLA: 68
Neither team is known for their defensive prowess while both can put points on the board. The Beavers averaged34.2 points per while allowing over 30 per. The Bruins will match Oregon State’s offensive output.
Maryland at Rutgers: 55 ½
Maryland has scored 17 points in the last 8 quarters. The Terrapins looked like one of the better teams in the Big Ten when they dropped 63 onto Syracuse on Sep. 7. Since then, the offense has been terrible. Rutgers will help Maryland’s offense get back on track. The Terps will score over 40 while Rutgers will also put up 21 for the easy over.
Oklahoma State at Texas Tech: 68
Oklahoma State only averages 40.8 points per game. The Cowboys won’t mind slowing it down if they face a team with that type of style. The problem with Texas Tech is that the defense is awful. If this were in Stillwater, over would be the play. It’s in Lubbock. So, go under.
Boston College at Louisville: 59
Both these squads can move the football. Louisville averages over 30 points per while BC averages close to 32 per. Neither defense can stop opposing teams from putting up points. Over seems logical.
Auburn at Florida: 48
These two 5-0 teams will field a couple of the top defenses in college football. Florida can play fast, but they’ll take it easy in this one. Auburn figures to try and play a possession game, wear down Florida’s front seven, and hope to pull off the road win in the second half. It all adds up to the contest going UNDER.
Air Force at Navy: 48
Air Force averages 34.5 points per game. Navy averages 36.7. Although on paper this sure looks like a high scoring game, the under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings. If you bet the analytics, you know the play.
