College football Week 10 best bets: Cincinnati stays undefeated with ease
Friday was a wildly successful day at the betting window for Pickswise Nation and we will try to keep it rolling on Saturday with a big slate of college football action. This week may not feature the most marquee matchups on the gridiron, but there are always plenty of opportunities as you attempt to turn in a winning card. Auburn vs Texas A&M has top billing among the bunch and it is one of our favorite plays of the day.
Let’s take a look at some of our best bets for Week 10 of the college football season.
Cincinnati -22.5 over Tulsa
College Gameday makes its way to Cincinnati, Ohio for the first time to showcase the College Football Playoff hopeful Bearcats. They are No. 6 in the nation and still have a lot to prove as a Group of 5 representative as they try to crack the top 4. Cincinnati has been a -22.5 favorite or higher five times already this year and only came away with a cover twice, but there is a lot to like in this particular matchup. Tulsa’s defense allows 30.9 points and 396 yards per game, which should give Cincinnati QB Desmond Ridder plenty of opportunities to put together consistent drives. In their two previous home games against Temple and UCF, the Bearcats racked up a total of 108 points. Against UFC, Jerome Ford ran for 189 yards and 4 scores on 20 carries. Cincinnati also has a massive advantage, only allowing 15.3 points per game.

Michigan State -3 over Purdue
The Boilermakers are coming off a big win at Nebraska last weekend, but it was their first time scoring more than 24 points since Week 2. The lack of offensive explosion has been due to the fact that they can’t run the ball. Purdue is near the very bottom in the nation at 80.5 rushing yards per contest. The Spartans, meanwhile, are firing on all cylinders after knocking off in-state rival Michigan in dramatic fashion last week. Running back Kenneth Walker has been key in this revival for Michigan State and he has now placed himself squarely in the Heisman Trophy conversation. Following a 197-yard, 5-touchdown performance at the Wolverines’ expense, Walker now has almost 1,200 yards on the ground and 15 TDs to go along with a 6.8 yards per carry average. Sparty is simply looking unstoppable right now…at least to the likes of Purdue.

Auburn +4.5 over Texas A&M
Following a big win at home last week against Ole Miss, Auburn is going on the road to face Texas A&M. The Tigers have won four of their past five games and are playing their best football of the season. Quarterback Bo Nix and the Auburn offense have scored more than 30 points in each of the past two contests. The Tigers’ defense is holding opponents to fewer than 20 points per game. They are on a roll right now and have looked good on the road this season even in difficult playing conditions. Despite losing at Penn State earlier, Auburn should account itself well in hostile environment.
