  • Collin Wilson uses his Vegas-style betting power ratings to project every point spread for college football Week 4 before they open on Sunday.
  • Use these numbers to find early betting value before lines move.

There Top 25 matchups this Saturday, but that did not stop us from making changes to The Action Network power ratings. Arizona State bested Michigan State in East Lansing, while Temple brought Maryland back down to earth.

With adjusted projections, Action Network subscribers are ready to tackle Week 4 opening lines. Circa Sports in Las Vegas has been the first to get sides and totals on the board before noon local time in Las Vegas.

Every Sunday morning, we will provide point spread projections on every game for the following week to find early betting value.

Our projections use the raw numbers from the The Action Network power ratings built as result of injuries, true box score results and advanced stats.

Look here in preparation for opening lines and follow me in The Action Network App when I bet those lines on Sunday afternoon.
