As I have stated previously, I am not a big totals player in college football, mostly in part because figuring the out the regular spread picks takes up the vast majority of my time.
But that does not mean I do not bet them, it is just I rely more on systems that win better than 80% of the time to help me formulate decisions.
That was the case last week in me taking Oregon and Wyoming OVER for a winner against the college football odds and I will share with more of these now.
There actually was a few games I thought the total made sense, however, all but one had a line moves with adjustments of four to five points working against what I was thinking about, which diminished the value. One that did go my way was Washington at Colorado. The total slid from 53 to 50. Last year’s Pac-12 title game landed on 51 (which was Under). In breaking this down, both defenses have forced seven turnovers in three contests and because of have been better at passing than running, I can see each taking advantage of any miscues and scoring. If we assume the Huskies being 10.5 point favorite is fairly accurate, I like Washington 33-21 and will back the OVER.
