We cold start this week off by talking about the current rankings as they look on Monday morning, but that might be a case of jumping the gun. Yes, the first official rankings from the Play Committee will be coming on Tuesday night, and while we don’t expect there to be too many surprises, it will be interesting to see how those rankings compare with what the AP Poll delivered this weekend. Georgia will almost certainly be on top, as it would be tough to knock out an undefeated defending champion from that spot. Things get a little trickier after that, though, so we are all going to need to wait and see what the committee thinks. For now, let’s focus on Week 10 of the regular season and our ATS picks for the weekend so you can make your bets on the College Football Lines.
ATS Week 10 Betting Picks | 2022 College Football Analysis
Minnesota Golden Gophers (-16) at Nebraska Cornhuskers
The Golden Gophers jumped out to a fast start this season, going 4-0 before running into a wall and losing their next 3 games. They did bounce back with a win last time out and head out to Nebraska as a pretty firm favorite. It has been a nightmare few seasons for the Cornhuskers, who fired their head coach a couple of weeks ago as they start to think about bringing in a new HC and building again. Things might get worse before they get better, though, as I like Minnesota to run wild here. Minnesota has covered in 8 of their last 11 games, while Nebraska is 2-7 ATS in their last 9.
Liberty Flames (+14) at Arkansas Razorbacks
Are we looking at a potential upset alert with this one? The spread suggests that the Razorbacks should have a relatively easy time of it at home this weekend, but I’m not so sure that they will. I am stopping short of suggesting that Liberty can win this one, but I certainly believe that they can keep it interesting from start to finish. The fact of the matter is that Arkansas has had trouble with the spread and has covered just twice in their last 7 home games played on a Saturday. The Flames are an impressive 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games as the underdog.
BYU Cougars at Boise State Broncos (-7 ½)
At this stage of the season, sitting with a 4-5 record, the goal for the Cougars is probably to just get the 6 wins that would make them bowl eligible. Getting that 5th win this weekend is going to be no easy task, as they will be heading to Boise to face the Broncos, who are always a tough out on their iconic blue field. The harsh facts are that BYU have been a team to avoid against the spread of late, failing to cover in each of their last 7 games overall. They are also just 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games, so really nothing to like there. Boise State has covered in 4 of their last 5 games and look like a solid bet in this one.
