NCAA Football Week 8 Odds: Vegas Point Spreads & Betting Lines

The one constant week to week in college football seems to be Alabama blowout wins.  The Tide rolled yet again, this time against Missouri, a tame (by their standards) 39-10 victory.  2nd-ranked Georgia’s luck finally ran out as they became another top ranked team to fall at LSU (16-36). We also saw No. 5 Notre Dame almost get knocked off by unranked Pitt, (6) West Virginia lost at Iowa State, and No. 8 Penn State lost at home to Michigan State.  It was a week of upsets to be sure!

Week 8 College Football Odds & Free Picks Against the Spread & Total

There are some big games on the board again this week and plenty of potential for upsets.  In the Top 25 we get the in-state rivalry between Michigan and Michigan State, NC State at Clemson, Mississippi State at LSU, and a night cap with Oregon at Washington State.  A few other matchups that have the potential to be great games include Oklahoma at TCU, Alabama at Tennessee and Colorado at Washington.  Once again, we’d be shocked if Alabama lost (they are 29-point favorites as of this writing), however, no team is invincible and all of these games have the potential to go either way.

Below you’ll find the point spreads and totals for the games on this week’s schedule, plus a link to a betting preview for each matchup with a free pick from one of our staff writers.  These odds will certainly update throughout the week, so check our college football odds comparison page to see updated information.  You can also see what free picks our experts recommend this week in college football by clicking here.
