Top 25 College Football Analysis and Betting Opportunities | September 21st Edition
#22 Texas Longhorns (-6.5) vs Texas Tech Red Raiders
The Texas Longhorns have been dealing with an injury at the most important position. Freshman quarterback Quinn Ewers was able to practice this week for the first time since suffering an SC sprain in his left shoulder against Alabama on September 10. That could’ve derailed their season, but Texas still is the 22nd-ranked program heading into their big game against Texas Tech.
The Red Raiders just faltered last week as they lost on the road to the NC State Wolfpack 27-14. Their quarterback, the sophomore Donovan Smith, has been having turnover issues as he has five interceptions in his previous two games. Texas is 3-0 against the spread this season so go with them to cover here.
#17 Baylor Bears (+3) vs Iowa State Cyclones
This game should be a lot of fun, even if you do not have a dog in the fight. Two dominant defenses square off at Jack Trice Stadium here with teams with different offensive blueprints. The Baylor Bears want to run the ball while the Cyclones are ready to drop back and pass.
Freshman running back Richard Reese has stepped up big time for Baylor as he has seven yards per carry with five rushing touchdowns so far. The eye of the Iowa State Cyclone’s offense is senior wide receiver Xavier Hutchison, who is tied for second in the nation with 28 catches on the year.
These defenses are going to be tough, but expect this game to be decided by one possession either way, and the Baylor Bears getting points to cover the spread in enemy territory.
Kent State Golden Flashes (+45.5) vs #1 Georgia Bulldogs
This is not to say a major upset is happening because I am not predicting that to happen, but 45.5 points means a lot needs to go right in order to hit that number. One or two punts can easily make that number unreachable. This Georgia defense is suffocating, and that might not be enough as they allowed ten total points through three games.
Their offense has been dominant as well behind senior quarterback Stetson Bennett having a bunch of top wide receivers around him. They are putting up 43.3 points per game, but that does not reach the 46 points they need to lead by to cover the spread. Just the ability to run the ball and pick up a few first downs will drain the clock enough to fade the Bulldogs here.
