NC State at Clemson Betting Pick & Prediction

2016 NCAAF Week 4 Expert Picks

Written by on July 14, 2016

By the time we hit Week 4 of the college football season, we should be getting a pretty good idea of which teams are going to be the likely contenders. A number of the big boys have some real tough schedules to get the season started, and if they can get through that gauntlet unscathed, they will have surely already caught the eye of the playoff committee. The problem for those guys are that there are going to be a few banana peels along the way, where they need to be careful not to slip up. While we don’t have the latest college football lines for this week, we can still take a look at some of the marquee games for Week 4.

Analyzing The 2016 NCAAF Week 4 Expert Picks


Clemson at Georgia Tech

The big games get started early this week, with the Clemson Tigers heading to Atlanta to face Georgia Tech on Thursday night. We mentioned the possibility of banana peel games along the way, and this has the potential to be one for Clemson. Tech had a down year last season, but that option offense that they run is often hard to stop once it gets rolling. They can chew up yard and kill the clock, so the Tigers are going to have to take their chances in this one if they want to escape with the win.

Wisconsin at Michigan State

These are a pair of teams that are likely to still be ranked when Week 4 rolls around, but it is the Spartans who are likely to be more in need of the win here. It is they who have a better shot at making a run at the playoffs this season, and a big win here would go a long way towards convincing the playoff committee that they belong in the final four. This is definitely going to be one to watch.

Penn State at Michigan

This is another one of those match-ups that falls into the banana peel category. Based on talent level alone, this is a game that the Wolverines should win going away, but there is still an awful lot of pride on display at Penn State, and they will be looking at this as their chance to make a major impact on the playoff race. This is one that is likely to be nationally televised, too, so mark it on you football calendar right now.  

Georgia at Ole Miss

We all know that the SEC West is going to be tough gain this year, but what about the East? A lot of people are looking at the Tennessee Volunteers over there, mostly because we are not entirely sure what to expect from the Georgia Bulldogs this season. If Nick Chubb return from injury and plays like he can, and QB Jacob Eason lives up to all the hype, this could be a dangerous team. Either way, this is going to be a fun game to watch.
