FSU vs. Clemson & Alabama vs. Florida Headline Week 4 College Football Betting Odds

Filed under: NCAA Football Betting Odds |

FSU vs. ClemsonThe one thing about predicting college football is that it’s generally unpredictable. That was evident during the Week 3 matchups that saw a wide variety of teams go down to underdogs.

A couple of top-10 teams dropped on the road, with Georgia falling to South Carolina and USC falling to Boston College. The Bulldogs didn’t fall very far in the polls though, and the Trojans are still in the mix as well. Of course, the nature of the college football playoff still keeps all one-loss teams alive.

Just don’t lose twice.

The third week of the college football season gets underway with an intriguing matchup on Thursday night between the Auburn Tigers and Kansas State Wildcats. The Tigers hit the road for this one, but are still 8.5-point favorites according to BetOnline Sportsbook. Auburn had the week off this past Saturday along with Kansas State, so both teams will be well-rested coming into kickoff.

This will be be a different test for both teams for several reasons, lead by the unfamiliarity of the two for each.

When Saturday rolls around, there are two matchups that stick out from the rest. One will take place in prime time under the lights in the ACC, the other in the afternoon in the SEC. College Gameday will be on hand in Tallahassee, as the top-ranked Florida State Seminoles host the Clemson Tigers. While both teams are ranked, the Seminoles are big 20.5-point favorites to take down the Tigers.

Clemson will definitely have payback on their minds, after that 51-14 beatdown that they received in their home stadium a year ago to Jameis Winston and company. The Tigers are huge underdogs in this one, with those looking to place a wager on them getting 20 points to play with.

Earlier in the day beginning at 3:30 pm ET will be an interesting game in Tuscaloosa between Alabama and Florida. The Crimson Tide are two-touchdown favorites over the Gators at home. Florida struggled mightily against Kentucky at home, at night. The Gators needed some assistance from the officials in the game as well, missing a critical delay of game call in overtime on fourth down. Florida proceeded to score the tying touchdown on the play and went on to win in triple OT.

Alabama is still an interesting storyline on offense as they enter conference play. The Crimson Tide were not tested last week against Southern Miss, but the Florida defense will challenge Lane Kiffin’s offense.

It’s another big game line, but oddsmakers obviously believe that Florida still has to prove a lot before they are ready to give them some favorable lines. For now, the Gators are in the role of the big underdog on the road.
