Week 4 college football lines are out: Early look at the best bets (presented by Betfred Sportsbook)
Week 4 is already here in College Football and it’s time to look at the early lines for the notable games this week.
No. 20 Florida at No. 11 Tennessee (-9): Tennessee opens as 9-point favorites against their hated rival in Knoxville. Tennessee has looked very good in its first three games with the offense in particular humming. Florida has had big highs and low lows so far this season, but expect this game to be close, especially in a rivalry game like this.
No. 5 Clemson (-7) at No. 21 Wake Forest: Clemson visits a Wake Forest team that has found its rhythm ever since Sam Hartman came back at quarterback. Clemson is also still trying to figure out its own consistency on offense with DJ Uiagalelei at quarterback. Clemson beat Wake Forest last year, so the Demon Deacons will be looking for revenge this time at home.
No. 10 Arkansas vs. No. 23 Texas A&M (-2): This neutral site game between two classic rivals matches up an Arkansas team that escaped last week against Missouri State, and an Aggie team that rebounded well against Miami. These teams don’t like each other so this matchup should be an interesting one, especially with KJ Jefferson on Arkansas running the offense and Max Johnson for A&M running a rejuvenated offense.
Wisconsin at No. 3 Ohio State (-17): This game lost some of its luster with Wisconsin’s loss to Washington State two weeks ago, but this should still be a quality game. Wisconsin’s power run game could cause trouble for Ohio State, especially if the defense can’t get off the field. Ohio State has the best offense in the country so expect Wisconsin to pull out all the stops against the Buckeyes.
No. 7 USC (-7) at Oregon State: Corvallis has historically been USC’s house of horrors and with a rejuvenated Trojans team, expect nothing less than Oregon State to be ready for this game. This should be a very high-scoring game with Lincoln Riley’s offense doing wonders for USC so far, and Johnathan Smith having the Beaver offense humming too. Both teams are undefeated so far and are primed for a crazy Pac-12 after Dark matchup.
Other game lines to look at:
No. 17 Baylor (-1) at Iowa State
No. 22 Texas (-4.5) at Texas Tech
No. 15 Oregon (-6) at Washington State
Missouri at Auburn (-6)
Vanderbilt @ No. 2 Alabama (-38)
Kansas State at No. 6 Oklahoma (-13)
