Week 10 College Football Picks Against the Spread

Texas Tech Kingsbury

Welcome to week 10 College Football picks against the spread. This week we check out two Oklahoma schools who are in look ahead spots ahead of Bedlam. We also have a total pick between two service academies.

Thus far i’m 33-20 on the season including a fiery hot 24-9 over the last 5 weeks.

Don’t bet on LSU or Alabama this week. If you must, I would back Alabama but it is a game I am avoiding. Let’s take a look at who you should back this week!

A quick Friday night pick if you get the article on post day, Middle Tennessee -13.5.

Texas Tech Red Raiders +13.5 vs Oklahoma Sooners

This game will take some guts to jump in front of Kyler Murray and this Sooners offense but the Red Raiders are the right side this week. QB Alan Bowman is back and makes a huge difference for this offense. Even with the mental mistake against Iowa St. I trust him especially with Tech returning home.

Night games in Lubbock can get weird and after Halloween this could be strange game.

Oklahoma has only covered 4 of their 8 games this season and haven’t faced an offense that can keep pace since Texas. The Sooners also face Oklahoma State next week in Bedlam and they could overlook Texas Tech in this spot.

I don’t hate a little sprinkle, sprinkle on the money line.

Bonus Picks: Texas Tech +13.5

Baylor Bears +7.5 vs Oklahoma State Cowboys

Baylor was embarrassed in their last game against West Virginia. They were a mess on both sides of the ball and the game was never in doubt. Oklahoma State on the other hand comes into this game after an impressive victory over Texas who was ranked 7th.

So this week we want to back the Cowboys yet again, right? In the immortal words of Dr. Cox from Scrubs, “Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong!”

This is the perfect to back the Bears, who have been fairly solid this season, especially at home. Oklahoma State faces Oklahoma next week in Bedlam. The Cowboys are in the middle of a letdown look-ahead sandwich. An early kick tends to help the home team as well.

The line opened at 8 and quickly went to 7.5 with only 38% of the money coming in on Oklahoma State despite seeing 63% of the bets.

Pick: Baylor +7.5

Air Force Falcons at Army Under 42

TAKE THE UNDER! This line has fallen from the opening number of 49 to 42. The under is seeing 72% of the best and 85% of the money. Normally I would fade such a heavy amount of bets but in this spot it’s the right side.

Service Academies love to keep the games slow and avoid blowing the other out. Since 2005 the under between two service academies is 31-8-1 per Bet Labs. Not only do they cover but the average total over that span is almost 8 points lower.

Pick: Under 42

Bonus Picks: Duke +9.5, Missouri +6, Notre Dame -10
