Rolling into Week 4 with a couple of games with enticing lines, I’m looking to take advantage of the main slate with a bit more sample size this season. Last week was a roller coaster, but we are back at it again this week with an optimistic mindset looking to finish the weekend in the green, aka profitable!
ND @ WIS (-6.5) (O/U 45)
Not for nothing, but I’m all ears if anyone can explain why Wisconsin is favorite by 6.5 points. Yes, Notre Dame has not been dominate this season, but they’re still 3-0. Put some respect on their name. The Figthing Irish did show some grit in Week 3 as they were able to defeat an undefeated Purdue team by three scores. Wisconsin comes in 1-1 with a bye in Week 3. They are playing at home, but that shouldn’t warrant being favored by 6.5 points to a team ranked higher than them. The issue for Notre Dame was on the defensive side of the ball and from what I saw last week, it seems as those issues have been corrected.
Notre Dame +6.5
LOU (-1.5) @ FSU (O/U 61.5)
This is one of the games that instantly jumped out at me for Week 4. The Louisville Cardinals may have turned things around after last week’s game versus UCF. Malik Cunningham could not be stopped on the ground and wait for it…in the air. The game almost went into overtime, but Louisville scored on a pick-six and came away with the win with seconds remaining. There were some high hopes for Florida State coming into this year, and all of those are gone entering Week 4. The change at quarterback looked to be promising in Week 1, but it was short lived. The only reason Louisville isn’t favored by more is due to them being on the road.
GEORGIA ST. @ AUB (-27.5) (O/U 57)
Let’s get straight to the point on this game. Georgia St. isn’t good and Auburn has been blowing inferior teams out this season. After a loss to a Penn St. team in which they could’ve won the game, I look for the Auburn Tigers to bounce back in a big way. Georgia State hasn’t been able to keep up with above-average teams this season and don’t look for that to happen this week.
UCLA (-4) @ STAN (O/U 58.5)
Could this game be for the right to be called California’s team? Okay, maybe not, but this should be a game where a lot of points are being put up. Stanford has been able to up 40+ points their last two games and UCLA can score at will in Chip Kelly’s fast paced offense. Looking for these two quarterbacks to go back and forth the entire game and points to be a plenty.
