College Football Betting Lines Week 4
Iowa vs. Rutgers
Iowa lost last week to a FCS school but North Dakota St. could beat a lot of FBS teams. They have enough respect that they are just outside the AP Top 25. While the loss doesn’t look great on paper it is not as bad as it seems. On the other hand Rutgers is a really bad team. Iowa should be able to rebound this week and take care of Rutgers.
Florida State vs. USF
Florida State -5
Yes I saw how bad Florida State got beat last week by Louisville. Louisville is that good of a team and Lamar Jackson is the real deal. USF has played nobody close to the caliber of team Florida State is. They have top recruits year after year. They did beat a pretty good Ole Miss team in week one. They need to prove themselves to America again after last week and they will want to make a statement this week.
Wisconsin vs. Michigan State
Michigan State -4.5
Both of these teams have an impressive win already in the young season over a non-conference opponent but I really like Michigan State in this one. The Spartans have the better defense and finally got the offense going a little bit last week. Wisconsin is dealing with some injuries including to both running backs that could stop them from scoring against that Sparty defense.
Central Michigan vs. Virginia
Central Michigan -3
Central Michigan needs to try and avoid a trap game here after starting off the season strong and going to a 0-3 opponent. While Virginia is not as good as a lot of the other power schools, they are still a power school. I really like Central because of Senior QB Cooper Rush. He’s putting together a solid season for himself.
Stanford vs. UCLA
This is a game that intrigues me. UCLA has one of the best QBs in the country in Josh Rosen but the offense has been pretty hit or miss all season. Meanwhile they get a break in being at home against Stanford. The Cardinals might be one of the best coached football teams there is and are always ready for the big game. Christian McCaffrey doing it all is a nice help too that UCLA can’t overcome.
East Carolina vs. Virginia Tech
Here are two offenses certainly capable of putting up over 30 points each and maybe over 40 in this one. Neither defense is that strong either with Virginia Tech allowing 45 to Tennessee in its main game and NC State scoring 33 against ECU for its best opposing offense. This one should hit the 30s on both sides.
