We saw a lot of chaos in Week 7. We’re going to see some movement in the polls, and with some undefeated teams going down last week, teams know that this is their time to make a statement. While we don’t have as many big matchups in Week 8, we still have some that will have playoff implications. In looking at the slate of games to bet on, we’ve found a couple of games where we think we have a good handle on who is going to win, thus making two teams our “sure winners” of the week. Let’s take a look at those games, and we’ll give you our winners so you can place your bets against the NCAA Football Lines.
Sure Betting Winners For Week 8 of the 2022 Season | College Football Lines
UCLA Bruins (+5) @ Oregon Ducks
This is a huge matchup in the Pac-12. After Utah beat previously unbeaten USC, the conference title is up for grabs. After getting annihilated by Ohio State in Week 1, the Oregon Ducks have gone undefeated. Having this game in Eugene at Autzen Stadium will be a huge advantage for Oregon, and we’ll see how much the raucous home crowd helps the Ducks.
Both teams are coming off of a bye week, so they will both be very well prepared for this one. Let’s first take a look at the UCLA Bruins. Chip Kelly has finally put the pieces together and has the UCLA program back near the top of the college football rankings. Dorian Thompson-Robinson is one of the best quarterbacks in the country. He can run, pass, and is one of the most athletic signal-callers around. With the running attack led by Zach Charbonnet flanking DTR, Kelly’s offense can be nearly unstoppable at times.
As for the Oregon Ducks, Bo Nix is doing a great job of leading the Ducks attack. They can beat you on the ground or through the air. Oregon has a number of good running backs that can gain good yardage on the ground. The Oregon offense ranks 15th in the nation in total yards, and ninth in points scored. However, UCLA’s strong pass rush could give the Oregon offensive line fits.
We could see a shootout in this one, but that would make it all the better. We just have a hunch that this is Chip Kelly’s year. We see everything coming down to the USC-UCLA battle later this season. We have the Bruins as one of our sure winners of Week 8. We see them winning this one straight up, and staying undefeated in the Pac-12.
BYU Cougars (-4.5) @ Liberty Flames
After beating Baylor earlier in the season, many felt that BYU could be a strong team. Well, things haven’t gone so well after that Baylor win. The Cougars have lost two in a row, including a beatdown from the Arkansas Razorbacks last weekend, where the Cougars gave up 52 points and over 600 yards of offense.
Speaking of offense, when you think of Liberty, that’s what you think of. Hugh Freeze has always been known as an offensive coach. Liberty is riding a four-game win streak, and only have one loss on the season.
In looking at some betting numbers, BYU is 0-5 against the spread in their last five games. Well, we’re going to make it 0-6, as we have the Liberty Flames winning the game outright and being one of our sure winners of the week.
