Those of you who like to wager on the top teams every week are in for a bit of a shock this Saturday, as a lot of the teams in the college football playoff hunt will be on their bye week.

There is a ton of information out there to help you make a great pick for every single game on the college football schedule.
We are digging a little deeper into the weekend action to see if we can come up with some winning picks, starting with the #17 ranked Cincinnati Bearcats heading out to face the East Carolina Pirates in Greenville.

Why bet on the Cincinnati Bearcats?
The Bearcats are very quietly putting together a nice season, as they will head into this road game with a 6-1 record. Perhaps more importantly, though, they are a perfect 3-0 in AAC play, which has them sitting atop the East Division in the conference, ahead of a UCF Knights that has dominated for the past few years.
The Bearcats come into this one as a big favorite, going against an East Carolina team that is winless through their first 4 games in conference play.
The Bearcats are winners of 5 straight and have beaten the Pirates 7 times in their last 8 meetings. Cincinnati is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games and have the same ATS record in their last 5 meetings with East Carolina.

Why bet on the East Carolina Pirates?
The Pirates are coming into this one with a 3-5 record on the season, but as we mentioned earlier, the majority of their losses have come in conference play, where they are 0-4 SU. Overall, the Pirates have just 4 wins in their last 16 games, so expecting them to come up with a win against a ranked opponent seems like too much of an ask. They are also just 6-14 ATS in their last 20 games at home, so playing in their own building isn’t even enough to swing things in their favor.
If you are looking to wager on the Pirates, the point total might well be the way to go. The UNDER has hit in 6 of their last 8 games and they are 1-3 O/U when playing at home this season. That said, the Pirates have been leaking points over the past 3 weeks, so the OVER looks good in this game.
