Moneyline odds provided by Bookmaker.eu as of November 1, 2018.
Colorado Buffaloes (+140) vs Arizona Wildcats
The pick: Buffaloes +140
The Colorado Buffaloes are hitting the road this week to face off against the Arizona Wildcats. The Wildcats are coming off a nice win over Oregon but have been very inconsistent this season. Colorado is on the road, but at +140 odds it is much better to choose the Buffs on the moneyline in a game that looks like it will be a coin flip.
Georgia Bulldogs (-310) vs Kentucky Wildcats
The pick: Bulldogs -310
The Georgia Bulldogs are hitting the road this week in a matchup against the upstart Kentucky Wildcats. Georgia is playing in a hostile environment against a team feeling good about itself, but the talent gulf is way too wide. The Bulldogs are the -310 favorite on the moneyline despite being on the road, and are the pick to win this matchup.
Northwestern Wildcats (+274) vs Notre Dame Fighting Irish
The pick: Wildcats +274
The Northwestern Wildcats have put together an impressive season, but have a tough test next time out when they host the No. 3 ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Northwestern is the home team but the oddsmakers have given Notre Dame a significant edge. The Wildcats at +274 are a solid moneyline bet to pull off the upset.
Washington Huskies (-356) vs Stanford
The pick: Huskies -356
The Washington Huskies did not play very well last time out in a loss to Cal, and quarterback Jake Browning got benched. Some may feel like Washington is vulnerable again this week against Stanford but that won’t be the case. The Huskies are the superior team and get this matchup at home. Washington is a safe pick as the -365 favorite on the moneyline.
Texas A&M Aggies (+160) vs Auburn Tigers
The pick: Aggies +160
The Texas A&M Aggies are on the road this week against the Auburn Tigers. The oddsmakers continue to believe in Auburn despite some issues this season. The Aggies are being underestimated in this one as they have what it takes to pull off the road upset. Roll with Texas A&M as the +160 underdog on the moneyline.
Penn State Nittany Lions (+349) vs Michigan Wolverines
The pick: Lions +349
The Penn State Nittany Lions are hitting the road to face off against the Michigan Wolverines. Penn State is the deserved underdog, but with a veteran quarterback it has a chance at the upset. The Nittany Lions are listed as the +349 underdogs, which is good enough odds to roll with Penn State. A win isn’t expected as Michigan is the better team and at home, but the payout is too good to ignore.
Alabama Crimson Tide vs LSU Tigers (+446)
The pick: Tigers +446
The biggest game of the week is also one which could pay off handsomely on the moneyline. Everyone knows the Alabama Crimson Tide is the better team, but going on the road to LSU is never easy. The Tigers will need many things to go right in order to pull off this upset. However, LSU has enough talent on defense for it to be a possibility.
The Tigers are +446 underdogs on the moneyline despite being at home, and that has to be jumped on. LSU has a lot of talent and if it can get a few lucky bounces an upset is certainly possible. Alabama is a great team but the Tigers are the pick in this one.
