College Football Best Best for Saturday (9/3): Utah vs Florida, Syracuse vs Louisville
I absolutely love college football teasers and it is a way that I have found we can make a lot of money attacking great slates throughout the season. When 50+ football games are on and you can buy more points on spots you like, you should easily be able to find at least 2-3 spots every week. Find a spot and number you love or one you are on the fence about, buy the points with the teaser, and get an even better line than you liked before. Let me show you what I mean here.
Utah vs. Florida Prediction
I think Utah has a good chance of taking this game outright and I believe they do. With that said, I think this is a one-score game either way and getting Utah at +4 here is lovely in my eyes. Even if things do not go well for the Ute’s today and somehow this Gators team pulls the week one upset in Gainesville, it should be by a field goal. At +4 we not only obviously cash in on anything outright, but we also still are in the green if they lose by three here. Football is a numbers game, make sure you play the smartest number where you can.
Syracuse vs. Louisville Prediction
My second play here is going to be Louisville taking on Syracuse in New York. The Cardinals steamrolled the Orange last year 41-3 and although I do not expect the beat down to be that bad here this time, I still think Louisville wins easily. They have the edge in all departments as far as I am concerned and they are good at exploiting the Oranges' weak spots. Syracuse struggles to stop the run and the Cardinals do it very well. Establish that early and Malik Cunningham might have the chance to throw for four touchdowns again against them like he did last year.
Utah and Louisville Pick
- Utah +4.5 and Louisville +1.5 (-140) (Bet $140 to win $100)
