College Football Over Under Picks From our Experts:


Purdue vs Maryland

Last week’s tight 20-10 win over Minnesota has been the exception and not the rule for Purdue this season. The Boilermakers have played mostly tight, high-scoring games this year. Even the team’s loss to Syracuse, which Purdue led just 9-3 at halftime, finished with 61 total points. Purdue’s other loss this year to Penn State ended with 66 total points, so the Boilermakers should have a good chance to top 58.5 points when they visit Maryland this week. Even if Purdue doesn’t have the most potent rushing attack, Aidan O’Connell has twice thrown for over 350 yards this year with receiver Charlie Jones proving to be a handful, even for top-flight cornerbacks. That should have the Boilermakers positioned for a healthy scoring total this week.

On the flip side, the Terrapins have a balanced attack that should be able to move the ball and score plenty of points. Maryland has scored a minimum of 27 points in every game this year, which is nearly halfway to the point total of 58.5 for this game. Taulia Tagovailoa is averaging over 280 passing yards per game, a total that would be higher if the Michigan defense didn’t keep him under wraps and knocked him out of the game a couple of weeks ago. Keep in mind the Terps have six different players who have a receiving touchdown this year, as well as two running backs who average more than six yards per carry. In other words, the Maryland offense is as balanced as they get, so the Terrapins should have no problem contributing to this game ending with 60-plus points.

Eastern Michigan vs Western Michigan

Every game in the MAC has the potential to become a high-scoring shootout. But that may not be the case in this week’s rivalry game between Eastern Michigan and Western Michigan. They combined for just 43 points in last year’s meeting and could struggle to surpass the over/under of 57.5 points this year. The Eastern Michigan offense is coming off a game in which they scored just 20 points against UMass. The Eagles have already made a quarterback change this year with new starter Austin Smith not exactly excelling as a passer thus far. He’s completed just 57% of his passes this year and threw two interceptions last week. While he’s a useful runner, without more from their passing attack, the Eagles will struggle to light up the scoreboard.

Likewise, Western Michigan has also had some quarterback woes this year. Freshman Jack Salopek is the starter, although he’s had a hard time finding his footing, completing just 54% of his passes and averaging 6.4 yards per pass. Salopek has also thrown more interceptions than touchdown passes this year. Even with the dynamic Corey Crooms at wide receiver, the Broncos have scored 13 points or less in three of their five games. While they managed to score 37 points in a win over Ball State earlier this year, Ball State gave up 38 points in a win last week, so they aren’t the best defensive team in the MAC. Unless Salopek can start to take some big steps forward, the Western Michigan offense may not do enough to help this game end with more than 57.5 points scored.

Tulsa vs Navy

Even when a triple-option team like Navy is involved, an over/under of 45 points is awfully low in college football. To be fair, three of Navy’s four games this season have ended with fewer than 45 total points. While it’s taken the Navy offense a little time to get going, the Midshipmen are throwing the ball a little more than usual. That gives them a little more upside offensively, especially against a Tulsa defense that hasn’t stopped anyone this year. The Golden Hurricanes have allowed at least 31 points in every game. That includes 40 points against Wyoming in their season opener and 35 points in a 38-35 win over Northern Illinois. Even if the Tulsa defense isn’t that porous against Navy, the Midshipmen could get close to 30 points in this game.

On the other side, the Golden Hurricanes should be able to contribute a lot to push the point total above 45 in this game. Despite a lackluster rushing attack, Tulsa isn’t shy about throwing the ball with Davis Brin. He’s averaging over 300 passing yards per game and has four wide receivers who are all having productive seasons while averaging at least 13 yards per catch. With a pass-heavy offense, Tulsa has a chance to strike quickly and at any time. That type of offense for the Golden Hurricanes combined with a flawed Tulsa defense should lead to Navy’s highest-scoring game of the season and put the point total in this game well above 45 points.

College Football Totals Betting Explained

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.

Expert College Football Over Under Picks:

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.
