What is going on in college football?
In all my years wagering on this sport this bettor has never seen as many big spread teams lose outright. Not only lose, but not even show up for the game.
Let us take a quick look at a few games from last weekend.
It all started on Wednesday when South Alabama, on the road at Troy getting 18 points, won straight up 19-8. Then on Friday, not to be outdone Syracuse beat Clemson 27-24 as a 23-point dog and California whooped all over Washington State, 37-3 as a +15 point dog. The Cougars were undefeated going into that game and had visions of BCS but they must have left half the team home.
Moving on to Saturday, Boston College hit the road to Louisville and was getting 22 points. No problem, the Eagles won 45-42. Houston was on the road giving 13.5 points to a 1-5 Tulsa team that just lost to Tulane the previous week, 62-28. The Hurricane were a different team this past Saturday as they just crushed Houston, 45-17.
Not to be outdone, undefeated Washington took to the road as an 18-point favorite vs. the Sun Devils of Arizona State; they couldn’t even score 18 in losing 13-7. Their team must have been with the Washington State players.
As crazy as those games were, the National Fake (news) League games were even crazier as most of the NFL players have their minds on other things besides football.
The Falcons were giving the Dolphins 13 points and lost at home, 20-17. The Broncos were giving the lowly New York Giants 12 and they could only score 10 points, losing by 13 at home, 23-10. The National Fake News league rolls on.
There are some games this week in college football that will be very interesting, especially the BCS games with the exception of Alabama wide open.
Saturday, Oct. 21
Oklahoma State -7 at Texas: This is a big revenge game for the Longhorns who were crushed by Okie State last year in Stillwater, 49-31. That game is one of the reasons Charlie Strong is gone and new Coach Tom Herman is in charge. Texas has covered five straight games since an opening loss to Maryland and their defense has gotten much better. A win here and it is possible they could make a good bowl game. This is a take all the way. TEXAS
