Boon’s College Football Best Bets: Week 11
We said last week that we aren’t going to have another week under .500 the rest of the season. Last Saturday, I had a 5-3 record and hit out underdog play. We don’t have the best College Football matchups to work with today, but there are a few big games that I absolutely love for my week 11 college football best bets.
With only three top 25 matchups on the slate today, we have to dig deep into the games to find some winners. The biggest matchups today are sitting in the SEC with #9 Alabama going on the road to #11 Ole Miss and in the BIG 12 #4 TCU is on the road at #18 Texas. I feel like I am seeing this board clearer than ever this week, and absolutely love a few games.
As always, below is the list of different picks I have. If you want winners, come back here every Saturday morning before you click submit on all of your college football bets. I will dive into all the trends, data, stats, and matchups, so you don’t have to. Here we go. As always, bet responsibly and let’s have a day. Here are my Week 10 best bets:
Overall Record: 42-37-1
Last Week: 5-3
Boon’s Best Bet of Week 10: #22 UCF @ #17 Tulane 3:30 pm
Bet: #17 Tulane -1
Listen, this is a must bet game today. It is only one of the three top 25 matchups on the slate. Yes, it is a game in the American conference, but Tulane is currently the best cover team in college football right now sitting at 8-1 ATS on the season. They are going up against a really good UCF team that puts up a ton of points, but playing at home will push Tulane over the edge in this game.
Best Bets Dawg of the Week/Upset: #23 Florida St. @ Syracuse 8:00 pm
Bet: Syracuse +7.5 / +215 ML
I am starting to heat up with my Dawg of the week. Giving you a winning underdog for 3 straight weeks now, I am looking to make it 4. This week is going to be a lot tougher than the last few. Syracuse is coming off of a 3 game losing streak right now, but heading back home to the Dome and going up against a Florida State team that has been up and down all season long. I can’t trust this FSU team on the road at all, and to add on to that, they are coming off of a huge rivalry win vs. Miami which sets up for a huge let down game for them.
Overs Play of The Week: Temple @ Houston 3:00 pm
Bet: Over 56.5
Another American conference bet? Give it to me! Houston has been the best team in the country hitting there overs 8 times this season. They are currently averaging over 36 PGG backed behind Senior quarterback Clayton Tune. Last week Houston put up 63 points in a loss to SMU where they gave up 77 points. This offense isn’t just going to give you a ton of points, but there defense is giving up over 36 PPG as well. This game should fly over for us.
Under Play of The Week: Arizona St. @ Washington State 3:30 pm
Bet: Under 59.5
This is an ugly play and an ugly game. Washington State is currently 2-7 on the season hitting there over in games. Both of these teams don’t have the best offenses this season, both averaging around 26 PPG. The only worry we can have in this game is this game is these defenses are so bad they both give up 30 points. Which won’t happen. Let’s root for no points.
BIG TEN Best Bets Play: Indiana @ #2 Ohio State 12:00 pm
Bet: Indiana +40.5
This might be the craziest line that I have seen in College Football this late into the season. Indiana isn’t the best football team, but they aren’t 40 points worse than Ohio State. Coming off of last week, Ohio State played a close game to an even worse Northwestern team. For the last few weeks, Ohio State has struggled to put together a full game and I don’t see them doing it today vs. Indiana.
Super Conference Play: #9 Alabama @ #11 Ole Miss 3:30 pm
Bet: #11 Ole Miss +12.5
Trap game. Alabama coming off a brutal loss in overtime to LSU last week and Ole Miss coming off a decent win vs. Texas A&M. Getting over 12 points from the home team seems like a steal. Yes, a lot of people are going to say this is a bounce back game for Alabama, but this is more of a trap game. This might be the first time we see Alabama play a game in the CFB Playoff era with no meaning.
Final Week 10 Best Bet Bonus Play: #4 TCU @ #18 Texas 7:30 pm
Bet: Over 65.5
TCU vs. Texas is going to be the best day of the day. Tho I didn’t give out what side I am taking (Texas) I think this is going to be the highest scoring game of the day. TCU is averaging over 43 PPG and Texas is averaging over 36 PPG. These to teams are going to put up some crazy numbers today, and we are going to see a shootout. We might see 40 points by the end of the first half. Lets get some points.
