Early College Football Week 4 Bets To Place
Week 3 of the college football season is here, which means it isn’t too early to get a look at some of the lines for Week 4’s action as conference play begins in earnest. Some of these lines may shift after this weekend’s games, so here are some of the bets you might want to lock in sooner rather than later.
USC -6 vs. Oregon State
Coming off a 41-28 win over Stanford, USC is only a 12.5-point home favorite against Fresno State. As solid as Fresno State’s offense might be, there’s serious potential for USC to turn that game into a rout – especially with Caleb Williams and Jordan Addison (172 yards, 2 TD last week) starting to prove they have a lethal connection.
If that’s the case, expect the spread to shift in the direction of the Trojans for their Week 4 matchup with Oregon State. Fresno State and Oregon State actually played an extremely evenly matched game against each other in Week 2. If Williams is able to easily take care of business against the Bulldogs, it only makes sense that more money will pour in on USC for this one.
If you get USC at -6, all it takes is a Trojans win by a touchdown to cover. A shift of just a point or two would make a major difference. After seeing how fluid USC’s offense has become in just two games under Lincoln Riley, USC beating Oregon State by a touchdown on the road looks more than doable.
Arkansas +1.5 vs. Texas A&M
The line is already shifting in Arkansas’ direction after Texas A&M’s home loss at the hands of Appalachian State. It could shift even further if the Aggies lose to Miami this week.
Texas A&M is largely still riding its reputation as the preseason No. 6 team in the country. The offense didn’t look convincing in Week 1 and looked abysmal in Week 2. What if Jimbo Fisher’s team just isn’t that great this season? Arkansas has impressed early in the year, especially with QB K.J. Jefferson showing improvement and the running game thriving. If you can get the Razorbacks as an underdog, it may be worthwhile.
One reason to wait? A Texas A&M loss to Miami may force a quarterback change to Max Johnson, if it doesn’t happen sooner. That could be the perfect storm for the Aggies to have a resurgent game against Arkansas. If Johnson hasn’t shown enough to beat out Haynes King up to this point, though, you have to imagine he’s not showing much promise behind the scenes.
Until we see improvement from Texas A&M’s offense, trust Sam Pittman’s Razorbacks.
Wake Forest Moneyline (+265) vs. Clemson
Week 3 may not force a major shift of these odds on its own, but it wouldn’t surprise me if more money poured in on Wake Forest as the game gets closer.
There still isn’t much reason to have confidence in Clemson QB D.J. Uiagalelei, but there’s plenty of reason to believe in Wake Forest’s Sam Hartman. Hartman missed the season opener amid a blood clot scare but returned to shred Vanderbilt’s defense for 300 yards and 4 touchdowns on 18-of-27 passing.
With a high-scoring matchup against Liberty on tap for Week 3, another great performance by Hartman could convince more people that the Demon Deacons are the better value here – and they are. Clemson’s defense will be a major challenge, but Hartman is a grizzled veteran of college football and managed 312 yards in Death Valley last season. On the road, the Tigers may not have enough offensively to keep pace this time around.
