San Diego State vs UNLV

It’s not just the Big Ten, the Mountain West is also back in action this week, including the battle between San Diego State and UNLV. The Aztecs are typically contenders in the Mountain West behind a solid defense and potent rushing attack, so they’ll open as 13-point home favorites against a rebuilding UNLV team. You’d have to go back to 2013 to find the last time the Rebels had a winning season. However, college football public betting is leaning toward UNLV, with 70% of the bets taking the Rebels to beat the spread. It’s not so much that folks are buying into former Oregon offensive coordinator Marcus Arroyo in his first season at UNLV, but with San Diego State’s offensive struggles last year, a 13-point spread seems like a lot for the Aztecs.

Consensus Pick: UNLV

Navy vs Houston
It’s amazing how far a semi-competitive loss against BYU can get you. After losing 43-26 to their fellow Cougars, Houston is a 14-point favorite against Navy this week. On top of that, more than 60% of the college football public picks early in the week are banking on the Cougars to cover the two-touchdown spread against the Midshipmen. The faith in Houston is a little curious, as Navy appears to have bounced back from a rocky start with consecutive wins over Temple and ECU. That being said, Navy has failed to impress on either side of the ball, so they need to hope that their triple-option can shorten the game and make it hard for the Cougars to pull away.

Consensus Pick: Houston

North Carolina vs NC State
It’s not often that two teams from the state of North Carolina face each other while both are ranked. Of course, the spread doesn’t necessarily reflect that. The no. 14 Tar Heels are 17-point home favorites despite losing to Florida State last week. However, over 90% of college football public betting is siding with the Wolfpack to beat the spread. NC State has emerged as a potential contender in the ACC after rattling off three straight wins, giving them plenty of confidence ahead of a showdown with UNC, who may have been a little overrated. Just keep in mind that NC State quarterback Devin Leary will miss at least a month after breaking his leg last week, which is part of the reason why the Tar Heels are such heavy favorites.

Consensus Pick: NC State

College Football Public Betting Explained

Historically one of the most popular betting strategies is betting against the public consensus. Although data has shown that betting against the public for college football games has been somewhat profitable over the years it may not be the best strategy, but examining college football public betting should be a crucial part of anyone’s strategy. .

The strategy behind betting against the public or as it’s commonly called “fading the public” is that most bettors do not totally know what they are doing and will pick a winner based on a gut feeling rather than data. Most casual college football bettors are more familiar with picking a moneyline winner and aren’t comfortable reading college football odds let alone picking a college football game against the spread. Since football is by far the most popular sport and the most popular sport for casual fans to bet on this strategy holds a bit more water. .

Of course BetQL has you covered in terms of college football public betting percentages and the number of public bets. If you think you want to try fading the public you can also check out our expert college football picks that will show you who the sharps are betting for each game.
