Wilson: Week 8 CFB Projected Spreads and Games I’m Looking to Bet on Sunday

Oct 14, 2018 6:59 AM EDT
  • Collin Wilson uses his power ratings to project every Week 8 college football point spread.
  • Use them to find value when the odds open on Sunday afternoon.
  • He also lists a handful of games he's looking to bet immediately once they're posted.

Welcome to Sunday Morning Coffee. Let this column serve as your first look at the projected point spreads for Week 8’s college football matchups.

These numbers are based off my College Football Power Ratings, which you can find here.

When the real lines come out later on Sunday (usually around mid-afternoon on BetOnline), I’ll compare my power-rated spreads to what oddsmakers posted to find betting value before the odds move.

Be sure to follow me in The Action Network app to get alerts whenever I make a pick off these numbers.


College Football Week 8 Point Spread Projections

Numbers I’m Looking For

Tulsa at Arkansas

Projected Spread: Arkansas -5.5
Number I Want: Arkansas -7 or better

The hunger for the Razorbacks’ first FBS win continues against Tulsa. The Golden Hurricane have covered against Houston and South Florida in consecutive weeks, despite getting some poor efficiency at the quarterback position. Tulsa’s offense is outside the S&P+ top 100 and will have plenty of issues with a hungry, battle-tested Arkansas squad.

Mississippi State at LSU
