NCAAF Betting | Trio of Week 10 Matchup On Tap!
No. 10 Miami (5-1) at NC State (4-2)
- When: Friday, Nov. 6, 2020 at 7:30 PM ET
- Where: Carter-Finley Stadium
No. 10 Miami has won two straight and got past Virginia 19-14 two weeks ago despite never coming close to covering the chalk as a 13.5-point home favorite. NC State had its three-game winning streak snapped in its humbling 48-21 road loss against in-state rival North Carolina two weeks ago while failing to cover the spread as a 14.5-point underdog.
Both teams in this ACC matchup are well-rested after getting a bye last weekend, but Miami has momentum on their side.
“We feel good to be at this part of the season and to be at 5-1,” Miami coach Manny Diaz said. “It promises to be an exciting and challenging stretch run.”
“We had enough time for the coaches and the players to hit the reset,” NC State coach Dave Doeren said.
While these two teams have only met four times since 2007, the Hurricanes have won two straight including a 27-13 win back in 2016. More importantly, the Canes have the far better defense in this matchup as they limit the opposition to 22.2 points per game (28th) while NC State gives up a whopping 34.2 points per contest (82nd).
Miami dual-threat quarterback D’Eriq King presents a ton of problems and I expect he will be the major difference for the Canes in this Week 10 showdown. King averages 283.7 yards in total offense per game. He has thrown for 11 touchdowns with four interceptions while rushing for 301 yards and two more scores.
The Hurricanes are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite and 6-2 ATS in their last eight games against a team with a winning record. Conversely, NC State has gone an uninspiring 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up loss, 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games as an underdog and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games against a team with a winning record. The Canes win and narrowly cover the double-digit spread.
Pick: Miami 35 NC State 21
No. 9 Brigham Young (7-0) at No. 23 Boise State (2-0)
- When: Friday, Nov. 6, 2020 at 9:45 PM ET
- Where: Albertsons Stadium
Ninth ranked BYU has looked phenomenal in going 7-0 heading into this contest. The Cougars are coming off an emphatic 41-10 smackdown win over Western Kentucky on Saturday, though they narrowly failed to cover the spread as a huge, 31-point home favorite. No. 23 Boise State has also impressed by topping the 40-point plateau in both of their games this season including their 49-30 rout of Air Force last weekend. Boise State had won three straight in this annual rivalry – until BYU snapped that streak by recording a 28-25 win last season while cashing in as a 7-point home dog.
I know BYU hasn’t played the best competition this season, but their wins over Navy and Houston tell me they can play with almost anyone this season. More importantly, Cougars quarterback Zach Wilson looks like future NFL performer and many are predicting him to be a Top-10 pick in next year’s NFL draft.
Wilson has passed for 2,152 yards with 19 TD passes and just two interceptions while helping BYU to its first 7-0 start since 2001. The Cougars are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last five meetings against Boise State. I like Wilson to be the best player on the field in this affair while BYU narrowly covers the chalk.
Pick: BYU 38 Boise State 31
No. 25 Michigan (1-1) at No. 13 Indiana (2-0)
- When: Saturday, Nov. 7, 2020 at 12:00 PM ET
- Where: Memorial Stadium
Michigan opened up its 2020 campaign with an emphatic 49-24 road win over Minnesota, but the Wolverines suffered a crushing 27-24 home loss against in-state rival Michigan State last weekend while never coming close to covering the chalk as an insane 21.5-point favorite. Quarterback Joe Milton passed for 300 yards, but failed to throw a touchdown in the loss while getting sacked four times. Now, Michigan will be completely desperate to salve any big-time postseason hopes they once had.
“I love coaching this team, the current team and the past teams we’ve had,” Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh said. “We forge on. Obviously coming off a tough loss, it was a gut-wrenching loss on Saturday. You can’t dwell on it. Just like any time we’ve had a win here, we’ve got to move on quickly to the next game.”
Indiana is off to its best start in the Big Ten since 1991. The Hoosiers stunned previously eighth-ranked Penn State 36-36 in overtime in their opener and backed that performance up by smacking Rutgers around en route to an emphatic 37-21 win last weekend while covering the chalk as an 11-point road favorite. Still, Hoosiers head coach Tom Allen said he believe his team can play at an even higher level.
“It’s about us playing our best football,” Allen said. “To me that’s the focus. We haven’t done that yet.”
While Michigan has won each of the last 10 meetings in this Big Ten rivalry, the Hoosiers now look like the better team – and they definitely have the best quarterback in this matchup in sophomore signal-caller Michael Penix Jr. The southpaw star has passed for 408 yards with four touchdowns and only one interception while adding two rushing scores on the season.
More importantly, it looks like Indiana has a newfound belief that they can compete with anyone and I suspect they’re going all-out to send a message to Michigan just like the one they delivered to Penn State in their opener. The Wolverines are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS loss while Indiana has gone a perfect 5-0 ATS in their last five games following an SU win and 5-1 ATS in their last six games as an underdog. Michigan has gone 1-3-1 ATS in the last five meetings in this Big Ten rivalry while the underdog has gone 3-1-1 ATS. Outside of those trends, Indiana now looks like the more complete team. Michael Penix Jr. will star again as Indiana gets the win in what will now, not be an upset of epic proportions.
Pick: Indiana 31 Michigan 27
