After a crazy weekend of games, the latest AP Top 25 poll has been released. We saw some movement within the Top 10 as three teams moved into the top half of the rankings. Let’s take a look at the Top 10, and we’ll also delve into a premier matchup that you may want to take a look at when placing some wagers against the NCAAF odds.
NCAA Football Betting – Top 25 Analysis and Opportunities
1. Alabama Crimson Tide
Alabama remained at the top of the poll with a huge victory over Southern Miss. Ole Miss comes to Tuscaloosa this weekend, and Lane Kiffin has one of the top offenses in the country. We’ll see if the strong Alabama defense can withstand a high-flying attack from the Rebels.
2. Georgia Bulldogs
Georgia stays at #2 this week. They’ll have a tough test this weekend as they host the surging Arkansas Razorbacks. They’ve only allowed two touchdowns this season, so they’ll be looking to continue their string of defensive success.
3. Oregon Ducks
The Oregon Ducks are the clear favorites to win the Pac 12. If they can continue on their path, the next biggest challenge will be at the Rose Bowl against UCLA. An undefeated regular season could earn them a berth in the College Football Playoffs.
4. Penn State Nittany Lions
With two wins over ranked teams, the Nittany Lions have found themselves inside the Top 5. A trip to Iowa in a couple of weeks could change a few things.
5. Iowa Hawkeyes
Speaking of Iowa, the Hawkeyes come in at #5 this week. They struggled early in their victory over Colorado State, but they got the win.
6. Oklahoma Sooners
Despite still being undefeated, the Oklahoma Sooners have dropped from #4 to #6. With their disappointing effort in their victory over West Virginia, the Sooners are looking for some answers, especially on offense.
7. Cincinnati Bearcats
This is the game of the year for Cincinnati as they travel to Notre Dame to take on the Fighting Irish. If they can win this one, they have a legitimate chance of earning a spot in the playoffs.
8. Arkansas Razorbacks
After their victory over then #7 Texas A&M, the Razorbacks have moved into the Top 10 for the first time in many years. They have a date with Georgia this weekend, so we’ll see how long they stay in the Top 10.
9. Notre Dame Fighting Irish
After their 4th quarter surge against Wisconsin, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are showing everyone that they’re for real. With a win over Cincinnati on Saturday, they could move up into the Top 5.
10. Florida Gators
After nearly beating Alabama two weeks ago, they rebounded with a big win over Tennessee. The SEC will be tough, but Florida has shown that they can compete with anyone.
A Battle Between Two 10 Teams
As we stated earlier, the Arkansas Razorbacks will take on the Georgia Bulldogs this Saturday. Georgia comes into this one as an 18.5-point favorite. This game is at Georgia, and we like the Bulldogs to win this one, but we’re going to take Arkansas and the points.
Sam Pittman’s squad will put up a good fight, but they don’t have enough offensive firepower to defeat the powerful Georgia defense. Georgia wins 27-14.
