    With a new season ready to kick off, we decided to take a look at some of the top Over/Under win total lines and pick Analyst picks for the 2017 College Football Season:

    Alabama Crimson Tide O/U wins: 10.5

    All eyes will be on sophomore QB Jalen Hurts as the Crimson Tide are projected to do what they do every year -- win double-digit regular season games. They're favored in every scheduled game this season, with ESPN power index indicating they have greater than a 75 percent chance of winning in 10 of the 12 simulated regular season contests.

    Analyst's Pick: OVER

    Clemson Tigers O/U wins: 9.5

    Anyone expecting the Tigers to have a major drop off better think again. No Deshaun Watson, no problem as the roster brings back a slew of offensive and defensive lineman to ensure continuity. QB Kelly Bryant should be just fine, even if all he has to do is manage games and let the defense take over. With guys like Christian Wilkins and Dexter Lawrence, Clemson's defense just might be the best unit on that side of the ball nationwide.

    Analyst's Pick: OVER

    Washington Huskies O/U wins: 10.5

    Led by QB Jake Browning, the Huskies are projected to have a strong regular season campaign -- despite losing John Ross to the NFL. They have a well-balanced receiving corps, a strong running attack with RB Myles Gaskin, and recruited well in the offseason to make up for some losses on the defensive side of the ball.

    Analyst's Pick: OVER

    USC Trojans O/U wins: 9.5

    With five starters -- three offensive lineman and two receivers -- from last year's starting lineup gone, can QB Sam Darnold keep up his level of play? Analyst's Pick: UNDER

    Michigan Wolverines O/U wins: 9.5

    This is an interesting one. In the same way other programs are benefited by returning certain starters, the Wolverines should struggle since only two of 13 starters on the defensive side return this season. The roster's just so well coached, though, and given the balance they had last season in the air and on the ground, it's tough to pick against them.

    Analyst's Pick: OVER

    NCAA Friday - Washington State vs Cal

    Friday night lights feature some Pac-12 action this week as the Cal Golden Bears host No. 8 Washington State at Memorial Stadium in Berkeley, CA. Heading into this matchup, WAZZU is 6-0 straight up (SU) and does have a 4-0 against the spread (ATS) record of late. Cal, on the other hand, has dropped the last two ATS and three straight overall.

    Date: Friday, 10/13 at 7:30 PM Pacific

    Vegas Odds

    Spread: Washington State -15
    Total: 54

    Most Thursday night games don't have a lot of movement from the opening lines, and this matchup sticks to that trend. Cal opened as a 14.5-point home 'dog, and they're currently at +15 at the time of publication The total has moved up 1 point from 53 to 54.

    Everything about this game points to a trap for the public. Washington St. has a whole lot of public interest following their recent victory over USC. On the other hand, Cal is coming off some conference losses. The public should be all over WAZZU, considering the lack of offense from this Cal roster.

    Betting on the Total

    The total has gone OVER in 4 of Washington State's last 5 games on the road.
