Saturday Setup: QBs affect NCAAF odds

As the college football season rolls on into the second half and games become more meaningful down the stretch, coaches keep injury news particularly close to the chest. This makes watching out for status changes late in the week even more important.

Here’s a look at the status of a few quarterbacks heading into this week’s action, as well as a few other things to keep your eyes open for this Saturday.

College Football Week 9 Line Moves

Texas Tech’s outright win as a 29-point underdog on the road over Oklahoma last week served as a reminder that on any given Saturday, anything can happen. Bettors and bookmakers alike will likely have that in mind when they handicap this week’s games.

Here’s a look at the four games with the biggest line movements in Week 9.

Arizona @ Washington (from -8.0 to -4.0 at 5Dimes)


TCU BYU Wagering Matchup Friday

Riding a five-game winning streak, the BYU Cougars will try to snap their recent losing skid against their old Mountain West rival, the TCU Horned Frogs, this Friday night.

TCU is 3-0 SU and 2-1 ATS in their last three games against BYU, outscoring the Cougars 101-17 over that three-game stretch.

Casey Pachall had a tidy 13-for-17, 175 yard, two touchdown game in TCU’s 69-0 win over New Mexico last week.

Miami 14 Point Chalk vs Virginia

A pair of 4-3 teams go at it Thursday in ACC betting action as the Miami Hurricanes face the Virginia Cavaliers.
The Canes are favored by two touchdowns with the total nestled around 48 points as of Wednesday.

Virginia coaches indicate that sophomore QB Michael Rocco will get the lion's share of touches this week, as they backtrack on the dual-QB theory they have embraced with limited success this season.


Pitt Favored vs UConn Wednesday

The Connecticut Huskies and the Pittsburgh Panthers will both be looking to get back to .500 on the season in their Wednesday night matchup in Pittsburgh.

While both teams have had similar seasons to this point at 3-4 SU and 2-5 ATS, UConn has had the edge in recent seasons in this series with a 4-3 SU and 5-2 ATS edge over Pittsburgh.

Lyle McCombs rushed for 130 yards on 32 carries in Connecticut’s last game against South Florida.

Houston vs Rice NCAA Matchup

The Houston Cougars hope to stay undefeated and keep their dream season alive when they host the Rice Owls this Thursday night.

Rice has won two of the last three SU against Houston and are 4-1 ATS in their last five against the Cougars, but did fall 73-14 the last time they played in Houston.

Case Keenum became college football’s all-time leader in total offense last week with 376 yards passing and six passing touchdowns against Marshall.
