Texas A&M vs. Oklahoma Kicks off College Football Spread Trends

Lots of big college football betting matchups between ranked teams pop up on the schedule this week. Most of them are the late games. As a warmup, let’s look at some trends for the Thursday nighter and Saturday’s early games.


Texas A&M (3-0) vs (24) Oklahoma State (3-0)

The OVER looks great in this matchup; it’s 5-1 over the last six meetings and 4-0 over the last four meetings at Oklahoma State. Against the spread, bettors may lean toward Oklahoma State. The Cowboys are 11-4 ATS over their last 15 games as a home favorite whereas the Aggies are 17-36-1 ATS over their last 54 road games.


(2) Ohio State (4-0) vs Illinois (2-1)

The spread online betting trends absolutely sizzle for Ohio State; I may as well just rhyme off the impressive list. 43-18 ATS over their last 61 games overall; 21-5 ATS over their last 26 road games; 9-1 ATS over their last 10 against teams with winning records; 8-0 ATS over their last eight games after accumulating more than 280 passing yards in their previous game. Wow.

(17) Miami (2-1) vs Clemson (2-1)

Are the Miami Hurricanes chokers under pressure? They’re just 12-25-1 ATS over their last 38 games as a favorite. Clemson is 19-7 ATS over its last 26 as an underdog – a trend that could trump its 1-4 ATS record over its last five home games.

Virginia Tech (2-2) vs North Carolina State (4-0)

Everyone keeps underestimating the N.C. State Wolfpack, who are 6-1 ATS over their last seven games as a home underdog. Virginia Tech, however, is 4-0 ATS over its last four games as a road favorite, so something has to give. The Hokies could also be riding high after shutting out Boston College on the road last week.

Navy (2-1) vs Air Force (3-1)

Navy owns this rivalry at the sportsbook in recent years, going 10-1 ATS over the last 11 meetings. The UNDER is 5-1 over the last six Navy/Air Force matchups. Navy is 4-1 ATS over its last five games as an underdog and 13-3 ATS over its last 16 against the MWC, so the betting prognosis looks positive for the Midshipmen.
