College Football Over/Under Picks for the Best Week 8 Betting Games of 2022

College Football Over/Under Picks for the Best Week 8 Betting Games of 2022

We are coming off another fantastic weekend of action in college football, and an argument can be made that we saw the best game of the season, thus far, in Week 7. The Tennessee Volunteers proved that they need to be given a ton of attention after knocking off Alabama in a 52-49 thriller. They still have some tough games to come, including one against the defending National Champion Georgia Bulldogs, but you can bet that everyone is sitting up and taking notice of the Volunteers right now. We head into Week 8 with some crazy changes in the National Rankings, which might well change again once this coming weekend is over. We need to pick up the pace in our O/U picks, as we are just 10-12 on the season, although we are 40-29 in our combined picks. Let’s get to it so you can continue betting against the NCAA Football Lines.

Week 8 O/U Betting Picks and Odds | 2022 NCAA Football Lines

UNLV Rebels at Notre Dame Fighting Irish – UNDER 50

It has not been a great season for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to this point, as they come into Week 8 with a 3-3 record. UNLV are stepping outside of their conference for this one and are almost certainly looking at another loss, but that is not what we are concerned with in this game. There are a lot of trends, particularly on the side of the Irish, that point to this one falling UNDER the point total of 50. The most obvious of those trends is that Notre Dame has seen the UNDER hit in each of their last 4 games at home, as well as in 7 of their last 9 games that they started as a favorite. The UNDER has also hit in 5 of their last 6 overall.

Arkansas State Red Wolves at ULL Ragin Cajuns – OVER 50 ½

It’s still early enough in the season that things might change, but realistically speaking, both of these teams look to be out of the race to win the West Division in the Sun Belt Conference. That said, a win here might give the victor a glimmer of hope, so expect both of these teams to come out with guns blazing as they look to get back in the hunt. I am definitely going against the trends with this one, as it’s more of a gut play, as all signs would certainly seem to point toward the UNDER. Only 1 of the last 6 meetings between these 2 teams has gone OVER, but I have a feeling that this one might just do it, too.

Utah State Aggies at Wyoming Cowboys – OVER 42

After a horrible start to the season, Utah State appear to be finding their feet, winning 2 in a row to get to 2-4 on the season. The Cowboys snapped out of a losing skid with a win in Week 7, taking them to 4-3 on the season. The Wyoming Cowboys are now on a run that has seen each of their last 3 games go OVER the point total. They have also seen the OVER hot in 8 of their last 10 games overall, so a lot to like there. The Aggies have seen the OVER hit in 4 of their last 5 games versus a team with a winning record at home.

We knew it was going to be an interesting 2022 NASCAR season as the Cup Series switched over to the Next Gen car, and that indeed was the case as 19 different drivers won a race this past year. Some people love the parity, while others think that the new setup favors being lucky rather than good. 

The 2022 NASCAR postseason was interesting, with the first four races being won by non-playoff drivers. Eventually, the cream did rise to the top, with Chase Elliott, Christopher Bell, Joey Logano, and 2021 Cup Series champion Kyle Larson winning races down the stretch. 

Even with all the parity during the regular season, few people could argue that Joey Logano was an undeserving 2022 Cup Series champion. Logano had three wins during the regular NASCAR season and two in the playoffs, but now the question becomes, can he repeat in 2023? Let’s take a look at this analysis for your NASCAR bets.

What to expect in the upcoming 2023 NASCAR season?

2023 Team Changes 

There has always been some swapping of teams in the offseason in NASCAR, but it’s almost getting to be like an MLB trade deadline the way drivers are realigned for the 2023 season.

The biggest move is Kyle Gibbs going from Joe Gibbs Racing, where he’s been since 2008, and heading to Richard Childress Racing. This is the equivalent of Tom Brady leaving the Patriots. 

Other big team changes for 2023 include Tyler Reddick leaving RCR for 23XI. This isn’t a shock because Busch was coming over, and Reddick had announced his departure in 2024, but Kurt Busch’s retirement from a full-time driver pushed up the timeline. 

It’s not just ‘trades’ that are going to make 2023 interesting, but also full-time debuts. The two biggest names moving to the Cup Series full-time are Ty Gibbs, who replaces Busch at his grandfather’s JGR club, and Noah Gragson, coming off one of the more successful Xfinity regular seasons in recent memory to drive full-time for Petty GMS. A.J. Allmendinger is also returning to the Cup Series full-time for the first time since 2018.

Who Will Win the 2023 Cup Series?  

It will be interesting to see if the parity of 19 different drivers winning last season calms down in year two of the Next Gen car or if that’s just how NASCAR is going to be moving forward. Logano (+650) showed a mastery of the new racing format, so he’s obviously a favorite to become the first back-to-back winner since Jimmie Johnson in 2009/2010. 

The co-favorites to win the 2023 Cup Series are Chase Elliott and his Hendrick Motorsports teammate Kyle Larson at +600. Elliott made the final four this season, and he and Larson won the Cup Series in 2020 and 2021, respectively. 

Other contenders for some 2023 NASCAR Cup Series future bets are Christopher Bell (+800), who was a championship four finalist after getting hot with two wins in the playoffs. Ryan Blaney (+850) will be a hot pick as well, even though he failed to pick up a win last season. 

Maybe 2023 is the year that some old dogs return to top form, too, as Denny Hamlin (+1000) had two wins in 2022 but another ten top-five finishes. Maybe a change of scenery gets Busch (+2000) back on track. 

Buckle up; the Daytona 500 is right around the corner.
