NCAA FOOTBALL BET ANALYSIS - OCTOBER 20, 2018
NC STATE vs CLEMSON
Pick: NC STATE +17.5 -110
NC State will take on Clemson and this spread appears way too high. Neither of these teams have lost yet this season. NC State has handled this match up very well the last 2 years playing very close with Clemson and losing both games by a narrow 7 point margin. Clemson has only won a game in this match up by more than 17 points once since 2009 and this is arguably the best team NC State has had since then. This game should be closer than the spread anticipates. Take NC State to cover.
LSU vs MISSISSIPPI STATE
Pick: LSU -5.5 -110
LSU will host Mississippi State under the lights at Tiger Stadium. This is going to be a defensive battle but I believe the Tigers have the edge. They should be able to shut down the Bulldog rushing game and when they do they will force Nick Fitzgerald and the second worst passing game in the SEC to throw the ball which I don’t see them being able to do effectively. The Tigers also have momentum on their side. They are coming off of a massive 20 point win over Georgia at home and the crowd should be electric again tonight. Take the Tigers to cover the points.
OHIO STATE vs PURDUE
Pick: OVER 68 POINTS
Ohio State will travel to Purdue to take on the Boilermakers. This game has the potential to be a shootout as both teams can score a lot of points. Purdue has score at least 30 points in each of their last 4 games. They go up against an Ohio State defense that given up over 800 yards of offense over their last 2 games against much weaker offenses than Purdue’s. Ohio State is loaded with weapons such as JK Dobbins, Mike Weber and Dwayne Haskins. They know they will need to score points to beat this Purdue team. Back a high scoring game and take the over.
