College football: Best over under bets

Whether it’s coaching philosophy, scheme or simply the type of talent a program is regularly attracting, some teams consistently produce higher or lower scoring games than expected.

Rice has been the perfect example. The Owls have been involved in 49 Overs and 24 Unders over the past six seasons, despite going 4/8 over/under last year. Coach David Baliff has been on the sidelines for five of those years, following Todd Graham.

It hasn’t been as much about the Owls’ offense as it has been their defense, which surrendered an average 38.22 points per game since 2006. UCLA is the other side of the story, with 26 Overs and 50 Unders the past six seasons.

The Bruins are on their third coach since 2006, with former Atlanta Falcons’ frontman Jim Mora, Jr. taking over for Rick Neuheisel. So the coaching relevance in this trend seems pretty slim.

But the results are pretty astounding, with the Under in Bruins’ games cashing 65.8 percent of the time over the last six seasons. UCLA games have averaged just over 47 points per game during that stretch.

College football totals are considered by many to possess some of the softest odds around. With two weeks to go before the season, check out the OddsShark.com data list below to see which teams the betting market has had trouble figuring out.
