Clemson, Alabama And TCU Are Some Of The Highlighted Favourites In The Latest College Football Lines Published By The Oddsmakers For Week 10.
LAWRENCE, Kan., Sporting Alert – Clemson, the No. 1 team in the opening College Football Playoff Rankings, is the favourite against Florida State, while Alabama is picked to beat LSU in the latest spread released by Odd Shark.
Clemson To Keep It Going They Say
The Tigers (8-0) sit atop of the first CFP rankings, which was released on Tuesday night, and they head into this weekend’s clash with the Seminoles (7-1) as 12.5-point favourites to pick up another win and improve to 9-0 on the season.
Clemson sits alone at the top of the ACC Atlantic Standings with a 5-0 conference record, while its 211 total points leads all teams in the league.
Despite being the underdogs, Florida State is not expected to just roll over and die, which is why this contest is shaping up to be something special.
A win for the Seminoles would certainly create more tasty spin in the college football rankings, while the Tigers can establish themselves as the true front-runners in the race for the national title this season with a victory.
Florida State sits No. 16 in the CFP rankings, which is where reigning champions Ohio State started last year before going on to shock the pundits – so it is reasonable to see why Jimbo Fisher men are still harbouring top four aspirations.
However, they will need to win this weekend to stand any chance of moving up the rankings, as a defeat to Clemson would more than likely squash their national title hopes.
The clash of the week is expected to come from Bryant-Denny Stadium, in Tuscaloosa, where the College Football Playoff No. 4 ranked Alabama will battle with No. 2 LSU.
The Tigers are undefeated at 7-0 overall this season and sit atop of the SEC West Standings ahead of the Crimson Tide with a 4-0 conference record.
However, Odd Shark is backing Nick Saban team, which is allowing 16.4 points per game, as the 6.5-point favourite over LSU this weekend.
This is another must see battle!
Someone say more ranking shake up?
I do believe so.
TCU Picked Over Oklahoma State
A close eye should also be kept on No. 8 TCU versus No. 14 Oklahoma State game, as the high-scoring Big 12 pair are set for what could very turn out to be an important battle.
The Horned Frogs (8-0) are listed as 4.5-point favourites by the oddsmakers, with the total for this game sitting at 79, which is not surprising, having seen these two sides combined for 110 points in their last respective meetings over the weekend.
TCU is averaging 48.0 points per game and passing for 389.4 yards per contest on an average.
The Cowboys (8-0), in the meantime, are scoring 44.0 points per game, while passing for 351.5 yards per game.
The oddsmakers believe the men from Texas are one of the “best and safest” college football teams to bet on, with their 20-3 SU and 17-6 ATS stats in their past 23 games.
