Oregon State Favored Over Purdue In 84 College Football Predictions This Week

Every team in the FBS has a game this weekend, which means 84 games. Our rating system (Savvygameline.com) has predictions for every one of those games, and all of them can be seen here.

Last week, the Index was 100% accurate in predicting winners and 40% better than betting lines in predicting spreads and total points.

Leading the way this week are two games involving top ten teams. Top-ranked Alabama is a seven-point pick over Miami, Fl despite betting odds that set the margin at nearly 20, while third-ranked Clemson is a four-point choice on our Index over #6 Georgia.

Two FCS teams are predicted to upset FBS opponents as Eastern Washington visits UNLV and title contender South Dakota State is a two-point pick at Colorado State. Also at-risk is Middle Tennessee, which is shown as a one-point favorite over Monmouth. In a rare bit of scheduling, UAB of the FBS is the visiting team against Jackson State of the FCS.

In the PAC-12, betting lines show Oregon State, UCLA, and Stanford all losing, but our Index shows Oregon State over Purdue 34-31, UCLA over LSU 28-27, and Stanford 32-24 over Kansas State. Predictions for other PAC-12 games show:

Oregon 41, Fresno State 20

Nevada 30, California 24 (Vegas favors Cal)

Arizona State 48, Southern Utah 3

BYU 38, Arizona 20

USC 32, San Jose State 24

Utah 40, Weber State 24

Washington 39, Montana 13

Washington State 40, Utah State 28

Colorado is a thirty-five-point favorite over Northern Colorado but watch this one closely because Northern Colorado didn’t play last season and has added 17 FBS transfers, including quarterback Luke McCaffrey from Michigan.

This is a long week of football as games begin on Wednesday with UAB visiting Jackson State and finish on Monday with Louisville at Ol’ Miss.
