NCAA Football Week 10 Best Bets
NCAA Football predictions are exciting. Trying to find the best bets takes extensive research on a big schedule, that is why here at Ask The Bookie we will offer free College Football picks every week.
Our first pick of the week comes in the Big Ten game between #20 Nebraska and Michigan State. Michigan State is a very good team that is overlooked. The games that the Spartans lose are usually very close and they match up well with the Cornhusekers. Nebraska is in a tight spot because they have struggled in road games and against conference opponents. Nebraska is 0-5-1 ATS in their last six road games when playing against a team with a winning home record and 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight conference games. Take Michigan State +2 at home.
The upset of the week comes in the SEC when #1 Alabama visits #5 LSU. This game is in Baton Rouge, one of the toughest places to play in college football and Les Miles and Nick Saban are deadlocked at 3-3 against each other. In fact, Miles beat Saban in back-to-back regular season games in 2010 and 2011. It was the first time Saban had lost to the same head coach in consecutive years since his first two years at LSU when Steve spurrier beat the the Tide 41-9 in 2000 and 44-15 in 2001.
LSU comes into this game hell bent on revenge from a devastating 21-0 loss in the BCS National Championship game at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on January 9. The LSU defense will help them put up a fight in this game. Protecting quarterback A.J. McCarron has been Alabama's weakness at times. McCarron has been sacked 17 times and pressured a lot more than that.
LSU is 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games after allowing less than 20 points in their previous game and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games following a bye week. LSU has had extra time to prepare and they have been waiting for this game all season long. Home field advantage also improves their chances of keeping this game close. LSU +9½ is the play here.
