Best early bets for NCAAF Week 14

Kansas State +2.5 (-105) vs TCU

Kansas State was absolutely dominating TCU in Fort Worth in the first meeting between these teams. That is until quarterback Will Howard was sidelined with an injury in the 3rd quarter. Once the Wildcats turned to their 3rd-string quarterback for a couple of drives, all momentum was squandered and TCU completed a comeback victory. I expect things to be different this time around.

Kansas State has been absolutely rolling of late, including blowout victories over the likes of Baylor and Kansas most recently. Howard has grabbed the reigns from Adrian Martinez at quarterback and the offense hasn’t looked back. From Deuce Vaughn at running back, to the deep wide receiver and tight end rooms, the Wildcats should give a weak TCU secondary all it can handle. And on the other side, Kansas State’s strength is its pass defense, which ranks 15th in EPA per play per College Football Data. As long as Max Duggan doesn’t have a career-best day, I like the Wildcats’ chancing of wining this rematch.

Tulane -2.5 (-110) over UCF

This was a matchup that I targeted in the regular season, and I still feel like it was the correct handicap. Tulane was able to stay within one possession of UCF throughout the meeting on November 12, but the problem was the Green Wave were severely hampered by bad turnover luck. Don’t expect that to be the case again in this matchup.

Since that victory, UCF has struggled mightily with Navy and USF over the past 2 weeks. You could argue the Knights were looking ahead to this AAC Championship, but I’d disagree seeing as UCF needed to win those games in order to qualify for the AAC title game. UCF will likely be without quarterback John Rhys Plumlee for this matchup and I expect the Tulane defense to key in on Mikey Keene, who is noticeably not a mobile QB. Michael Pratt should feast on a weak UCF secondary and Tulane should pick up its first AAC title.
