There’s a lot of shame in the Betting Guide this week as last week went disastrously poor.
We notched a 1-3 record bringing our season total to an embarrassing 11-9, but when the odds came out earlier this week, ya boi found some solid gold waiting for us.
Using a very advanced algorithm (see: a dart board with team names), I found some real winners for this upcoming week six of college football. Again, the Betting Guide picks an over, an under, a spread and a moneyline to ensure this is a little bit more of a challenge.
Gambling is very fun and healthy when done responsibly, never forget that guys and gals.
Vanderbilt @ Ole Miss - O/U 63.5 points
Although it seems Vandy’s defense is not that great after giving up more than 30 points to Georgia, Purdue, and LSU each, I think Ole Miss is still searching for its offensive identity going forward from a Bama game where it scored 31. You have to swallow the bitter pill that the last touchdown was garbage, and its likely Grant Tisdale may not get many looks Saturday though he definitely should. I’m thinking this game could end exactly like the Arkansas game or maybe a little tighter like 27-21 in the Rebels’ favor. Take the under.
#21 Oklahoma St. (-10) @ Texas Tech
The Cowboys seem primed to make a statement against a Texas Tech program that is in transition. OSU beat Kansas St. by 13 last week in Stillwater, and it’s only slip up for the year was a six point loss to Texas in Austin. I could see this game potentially getting ugly after watching Oklahoma trounce the Red Raiders by nearly 40 points. It’s also very difficult not to bet on a coach with a mullet. They have very little to lose, honestly. Bet the ‘Boys to cover.
Memphis @ UL-Monroe - O/U 63 points
The Warhawks have the capability to score in bunches and nearly beat Florida State earlier this year 45-44. They also have a very bad defense, so I picture Memphis scoring 40 or more points on the road and ULM notching 24 or so against a hit or miss Tiger defense. The over is a great bet here, but if you have Mike Norvell’s cell number, ask him if he is betting the over so you can know for sure whether it’ll hit or not.
Arizona +155 @ Colorado
Don’t look now, but the PAC-12 race is going to be an absolute mish mash of mediocrity and parity for the next two months. One of these teams will take a nice step on Saturday, and I think it’ll be the Wildcats with new head coach Kevin Sumlin. Colorado could very easily be 1-3 instead of 3-1, and though Arizona lost its only game on the road, the Buffs haven’t been great at home. Bet Arizona to pull off the upset and bathe in money.
So what’d we get wrong and what bets do you see out there that can’t miss? Comment or tweet @redcuprebellion with your scalding, smoking hot takes.
