Early College Football Week 8 Bets To Place

Week 7 of the college football season is already here, which means it isn’t too early to get a look at some of the lines for Week 8’s action. Many of the early 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.

Penn State -5 vs. Minnesota

I don’t love what I saw from Minnesota against Purdue, and I’m not sure the return of RB Mohamed Ibrahim is going to jolt the Golden Gophers back to what they were earlier in the season. Tanner Morgan was a turnover machine against the Boilermakers, and Minnesota let Purdue’s running game impact the game too much.

If Minnesota falls to Illinois this week, which is a real possibility on the road against a tough Illini defense, Penn State could quickly be favored by more than a touchdown at home. A Penn State win or close game against Michigan, of course, could also help push this line even more in favor of the Nittany Lions. I’d take Penn State as long as the line is under a touchdown.

Kansas +9.5 vs. Baylor

This is an interesting one considering Kansas just lost QB Jalon Daniels for the foreseeable future. Backup Jason Bean, who has starting experience, entered the game vs. TCU and played very well, tossing four touchdowns in one half of football.

Oddsmakers might be a bit low on the Jayhawks after the news of Daniels’ injury – Kansas is a 9-point underdog against flailing Oklahoma this weekend – but a strong full-game performance by Bean might restore some confidence in Lance Leipold’s team and narrow this line a bit.

Baylor is coming off a 36-25 home loss to Oklahoma State and could be vulnerable enough to get caught in a close game with a well-coached Kansas team. If you’re a believer in Bean, I’d lock this in now.

Ole Miss -2 vs. LSU

Similar to how Tennessee became a larger favorite over LSU as their matchup approached, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Ole Miss take over as a decisive favorite ahead of this game.

The Rebels have a great opportunity for a blowout win this weekend against a flailing Auburn team. The defense should be able to have its way with an Auburn offense that hasn’t been effective for more than a year. An easy victory would assert undefeated Ole Miss as a team that can similarly toy with an LSU offense that hasn’t held up well against tough competition.

LSU looks much closer to Auburn’s level than Ole Miss’ level. Even if Ole Miss doesn’t win by as much as I expect against Auburn, a convincing LSU loss to Florida in Gainesville could still move this line in the Rebels’ direction. It’s worth locking in Ole Miss -2 while it’s available.

Oklahoma State +2.5 vs. Texas

Undefeated Oklahoma State is listed as an underdog in each of its next two games. If the Cowboys can go into TCU and hand the Horned Frogs their first loss of the season, they might not be home underdogs against Texas for much longer.

Texas doesn’t have much to prove this weekend. The Longhorns are favored by more than two touchdowns against Iowa State and are expected to take care of business at home with Quinn Ewers back.

Oklahoma State can make a statement against TCU, and the roster is talented enough from top-to-bottom to outclass Sonny Dykes’ team before taking all of that momentum into the crucial matchup with Texas. Oklahoma State +2.5 or on the moneyline are both strong options.
