We’ve got another weekend full of great sports action. Bettors will have all sorts of college and professional football to wager on. We’ve found a few games that should give you the opportunity to earn some money. Let’s take a look at a few games to bet on this weekend so you can get ready to place your bets against the NCAA Football Odds.
Some Weekend Betting Opportunities For this Weekend’s College Football Action
Cincinnati Bearcats @ UCF Knights (+1)
Both teams are having a great season, as the Bearcats are 6-1 and the Knights are 5-2. Cincinnati held off a good SMU team last weekend, while UCF defeated ECU on the road. This is the same Cincinnati team that made the College Football Playoffs last season. Luke Fickell has continued to build this program.
The matchup to watch in this one will be the Cincinnati run defense against the rushing attack of Central Florida. Cincy lost a lot of their run-stoppers last season, and they also get after the quarterback. The best way to counter a good pass rush is to go at them and run the football. We think that Central Florida will do that, and do it well.
We like Central Florida in this one. Cincinnati is going to have a hard time beating Central Florida at home. The Knights win this one outright.
Missouri Tigers @ South Carolina Gamecocks (-5.5)
After a 1-2 start, and getting blown out by Arkansas and Georgia, Gamecock fans were worried about their team. The Gamecocks are now 5-2, and are playing well. They’ll welcome the Missouri Tigers to town this weekend for an SEC battle.
It hasn’t been a very good season for the Tigers. They’re 3-4, and their lone SEC victory was a 17-14 home victory over the lowly Vanderbilt Commodores. Missouri hasn’t been good on the road, as they’re 0-4 away from Columbia.
The Gamecocks are coming off of a big 30-24 victory over Texas A&M last week. The South Carolina offense has been averaging 33 points per game. The offense has been fairly balanced, but they have had better success on the ground than through the air.
We just can’t see Missouri keeping up with South Carolina. The Gamecocks are playing too well, the Tigers are awful on the road, and if you only beat Vanderbilt by three, you can’t be very good. Missouri wins this one by at least 14.
More Football Games to Bet On the Weekend If You’re Interested
- Chicago Bears @ Dallas Cowboys (-9.5)
Coming off of a huge win over the New England Patriots on Monday night, the Chicago Bears are heading into Dallas with some momentum. Dallas is coming off of a win against the Detroit Lions and the return of Dak Prescott.
Chicago finally started utilizing the running ability of Justin Fields on Monday night. Dallas has one of the best defenses in the league and will key in on slowing Fields down. Chicago’s passing attack has been bad, and their offensive line has had some issues this season.
Dallas needs to get the ball downfield more, and utilize their pass catchers. Chicago’s secondary is good, but their receivers should have time to get open, as Chicago’s pass rush has been average at best.
While Dallas is favored by a lot of points, we also expect a letdown from the Bears this week. Dallas wins the game 28-17, covering the spread.
