Moneyline Upset Picks College Football Week 8
Auburn -185 at Ole Miss +160
When: Saturday, Oct. 20 at 12:00 pm ET
Where: Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, University, MS
Analysis: The wheels are off at Auburn. Gus Malzahn’s squad had a lot going for it when it beat Washington in Week 1. Since then, Auburn had lost to both LSU and Mississippi State before their Week 7 game versus the Tennessee Volunteers. The Vols dismantled Auburn 30-24 as a +14.5 dog.
Now, Auburn must battle Ole Miss on the road in Week 8. The fact Auburn’s favored by less than 3 means college football handicappers are all over the Rebels. By game time, Ole Miss might be at -1, but as it stands, the Rebels are legitimate moneyline underdogs versus Auburn.
Week 8 Moneyline Upset Pick: Ole Miss
#2 Ohio State -525 at Purdue +415
When: Saturday, Oct. 20 at 7:30 pm ET
Where: Ross-Ade Stadium, West Lafayette, IN
Analysis: The Buckeyes are undefeated because of a stunning offense that averages 46.5 points per game. Ohio State’s a terrible covering team, though. The Buckeyes have only gone 3-4 ATS this season. They’ve gone 0-3 ATS in their last 3 games.
It helps to know a team’s against the spread record when betting against them on the moneyline because teams that don’t cover the spread eventually lose a game. Ohio State could be on the verge of losing this Saturday.
The Buckeyes face a Purdue squad that averages 33.5 points per. Purdue can hang with Ohio State on the scoreboard. A few lucky bounces, and the Boilermakers could win straight up.
Week 8 Moneyline Upset Pick: Purdue
USC +205 at Utah -245
When: Saturday, Oct. 20 at 8:00 pm ET
Where: Rice-Eccles Stadium, Salt Lake City, UT
Analysis: Utah’s a pretty good football team having gone 4-2 SU and 3-3 ATS, but the USC Trojans head to Salt Lake City off their most impressive performance of the season.
USC dominated then undefeated Colorado 31-20 as a -7 favorite. Because USC had beaten and covered against Arizona in their previous game, the win over the Buffalos was their second straight.
The Trojans have momentum. I think moneyline dog bettors can capitalize on that momentum.
Week 8 Moneyline Upset Pick: USC
