Coastal Carolina vs Troy
While the Sun Belt has become one of the top mid-major conferences in college football in recent years, don’t be surprised if this week’s conference championship game becomes a defensive slugfest. For starters, there is still uncertainty regarding the availability of Coastal Carolina quarterback Grayson McCall. He’s missed the team’s last two games with the Chanticleers scoring just seven points against James Madison last week without him. To add insult to injury, the Chanticleers are set to face a Troy defense that conceded just 16.8 points per game this season. The Trojans have a top-10 scoring defense that figures to make life difficult for the Coastal Carolina offense. Even if McCall plays, if he’s rusty or not quite 100%, the Chanticleers could have a hard time moving the ball.
At the same time, the Troy offense isn’t exactly dynamic. The Troy offensive line allowed the team’s quarterbacks to be sacked 36 times in 12 games during the regular season. That contributed to a rushing attack that averaged just 3.6 yards per carry despite Kimani Vidal eclipsing the 1,000-yard mark. Meanwhile, quarterback Gunnar Watson threw the same number of interceptions as he did touchdown passes. In fact, in their seven games this season against teams that won at least six games, the Trojans averaged a modest 21.1 points per game. While the Coastal Carolina defense wasn’t among the best in the Sun Belt this year, the Chanticleers have enough talent on that side of the ball to slow down a flawed Troy offense. Unless McCall returns from injury and looks as good as new, this game looks destined to finish below the over/under of 48 points.

Akron vs Buffalo
Most fans are accustomed to wild shootouts in the MAC every week. But don’t count on that being the case for Friday’s game between Akron and Buffalo with the over/under set at just 55 points. For starters, Akron is one of the worst offensive teams in the country. The Zips have averaged just 21.7 points per game this season. Last week’s surprising 44-12 win over Northern Illinois was just the second time the Zips scored more than 30 points this year. With an offensive line that’s allowed 50 sacks in 11 games and has hindered a rushing attack that gains just 2.9 yards per carry, the Zips aren’t exactly a safe bet to put up a crooked number for the second straight week. There is also some uncertainty over who will play quarterback with starter DJ Irons missing last week’s game and backup Jeff Undercuffler being forced into action despite playing well in the win.
Meanwhile, the Buffalo offense doesn’t exactly look poised to force the Zips into a high-scoring shootout. To their credit, the Bulls have found a nice balance between the run and pass this year. On the other hand, Cole Snyder hasn’t thrown a touchdown pass in his last two games. The Bulls have also failed to score more than 27 points in each of their last three games, all of which they lost. If the team that’s favored by 11 points can’t make it to 30 points, there’s no chance of this game topping the over/under of 55 points. Even against a porous Akron defense, the Bulls may not be able to hit their stride. They will just be looking to get a win any way they can. That could result in a tight, low-scoring battle that keeps the point total below 55.
BetQL College Football Over/Under: Under 55
Betting on the over under total is very tough in college because games are much more unpredictable with these young athletes out on the field. Even the most talented players have poor games and stretches throughout their college career, which makes it that much harder to predict the final score of each game.

As stated above, betting the over under is one of the hardest things to do in a college football game because of the incredible amount of unpredictability involved in the sport. However, betting over unders is a pretty straightforward way of betting that doesn’t require much information to understand how it works. The total is a very common way for sports bettors to wager on a game, and you will see below why even the most inexperienced sports gambler will have an easy time understanding the basics of total betting. We have compiled an example that explains how betting the total works, as well as explaining the odds that are associated with making a total bet on the over under. Check it out below.
College Football Over Under Example: Notre Dame vs. Clemson (O56,-110) (U56, -110)
Betting the total in a college football game is hard when it comes to picking a winner, but not hard to understand how it works. As you can see above, the total for this game between Notre Dame and Clemson is set at 56. This simply means that the total score between both teams when combined is projected to be 56 points. Betting the over for this game would imply that you believe the total amount of points scored during the game will be higher than 56. If the game lands on exactly 56 points scored, the bet pushes and you get the money back that you wagered on the game. A bet on the under would imply that you believe the total score of the game will be under 56 points. The bet would also push should the number land on 56. So, as you can see, it’s pretty simple to understand. You are just betting if the total amount of points scored in the game is higher or lower than the number listed.
Now for the second part, the actual odds you have to pay to make the bet. This is fairly simple to understand once you know what the numbers mean. In this instance, both spreads are listed as -110. What this simply means is that in order to win $100, you must bet $110 dollars. The amounts do not have to be this small or large either, as it would mean the same thing with any amount. An $11 wager would win you $10, while an $1100 dollar wager would win you $1000, and so on. This extra price you have to pay is called “vigor” or “juice” on a line. Think of it like a tax you are having to pay the books to place your bet.
There are times when you will occasionally see a “plus-money” line with a spread bet, however, that is very rare. If you do see one, it will simply have a “+” instead of a “-“ in front of the number. Let’s say the number is +160. What this means is that if you bet $100 on this line, you would win $160. So you are not having to pay a tax at all, and instead, you are getting a much higher payout. Lines like these are always on a bet that is more unlikely to win, so you will have to be okay with the risk that involves being in the unfavorable situation.
At BetQL, we know that sports bettors want the most options possible at their disposal before they place their hard-earned money on a college football game. Not only do we have our computer models picks on each game every week, but we have a team of experts working throughout the season to help you make your bets. This is a team of real people who work each week to crunch the numbers and do their own research to find you the best value on certain games. But that’s not where the options stop with BetQL. We have all the betting data you need from the sports books to figure out where the money is going, from public money percentage to sharp money. This lets you see where the big bets are being placed, and which side the sharp bettors are on.
One of the best ways, and most profitable ways, to bet the over under total is by looking at the sharp action. These numbers will tell you where all the huge tickets are going on a game, compared to where the small wagers are being placed. For example, one team may have a huge number of tickets on them compiling of 90% of the total bets placed on that game for that type of wager, while the other team only has 10%. However, that 10% team may have over 70% of the total money bet on the game, meaning that the bets placed on that team are very large amounts of money. This lets you separate the more inexperienced bettors from the big cats that are placing massive amounts of money on bets every single night. These gamblers are usually sharp bettors, people that gamble for a living and have inside sources that help them win bets. We have this data via our BetQL model that tells us the Sharp %, making sure you know where the pros are betting each and every game.
As stated above, there is no-one that is quicker to get their picks out than BetQL. We want to be sure that you get the best of the number and secure that closing line value before it is stripped away. Our picks go live the instant the odds come out, so you won’t have to wait on the experts to sort through all the research and data. Our computer does that in seconds after each game is played, so it is already able to make a pick as soon as the lines come out on which way the data is telling you to bet. BetQL is a faster way to make smarter and more informed bets.
