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.

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.
