College Football Betting Trends Week 4
Wisconsin at Ohio State
Ohio State is an 18-point favorite heading into this matchup. Straight up, Ohio State is 38-2 over its last 40 games as the favorite and 10-0 as the favorite at home. They should win over the Badgers. But Ohio State rarely covers.
Ohio State is 1-4 in its last five against the spread as the favorite and 1-3 ATS as the favorite at home over the last four games. Looking at the trends, there should be no doubt that the Buckeyes win but they probably won’t cover.
Clemson at Wake Forest
This weekend’s game has Clemson as a 7-point favorite. Based on the recent history between the two teams, Clemson should not only win but cover easily.
Notre Dame at North Carolina
Notre Dame is dominant in this matchup. The Fighting Irish are 4-0 SU in their last four against North Carolina, 3-0 ATS vs the Tar Heels and 5-0 as the favorite against North Carolina. They’ll likely win yet again, especially after last week’s victory.
Given the way this matchup has gone recently, there’s a real chance to make some money here. The Fighting Irish are currently listed at +105 at sportsbook BetUS. A $100 bet would net a $105 profit.
