Everyone will have their eyes on LSU-Alabama and Penn State-Minnesota this weekend, but don’t forget that there’s plenty of value in some less heralded games.

The lines often aren’t as sharp and there aren’t as many eyes on the games. If you know personnel mismatches, coaching staffs and advanced stats for Group of Five teams, you can position yourself well to make some money.

Every Saturday, I’ll be putting out a few of my favorite bets in some under-the-radar games.

This week I’ve got four, so let’s jump in.

Odds as of Thursday at 7 p.m. ET. Check out PointsBet, where Action Network users can access an exclusive promotion to get a 200% deposit match (deposit $50, bet with $150).

Week 11 College Football Bets

Georgia Southern at Troy

  • Odds: Georgia Southern -3
  • Total: 56
  • Time: Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET
  • TV: ESPN+

The Troy Trojans were the lone team from last week’s piece to not get us to the window. This week, we’re back on the men of Troy catching a field goal against Georgia Southern. Let’s start by examining Georgia Southern’s big upset of Appalachian State last week. 

App State’s poor run defense was exposed by the Southern triple-option attack, but they still managed to outgain the Eagles by over 80 yards. Appalachian State quarterback Zac Thomas was forced to take to the air 51 times in this one because his defense allowed its opponent to get out to a lead.
