    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

  • College Football Week 3 Recap

    College football is finally starting to heat up and we are here for it. The SEC will finally kick off in week 4 so now is the time to start doing your research and getting ready to find some winners. Remember you can always find winners withBetQL’s college football picks, but before we get started with week 4 we wanted to look back at some of our favorite games from week 3. Take a look at our recaps below and start getting ready for the biggest week of the year. 

    Louisiana 34, Georgia State, 31 Overtime

    It’s safe to say that the Ragin’ Cajuns spent most of the week basking in the glory of last week’s upset win over Iowa State because they came out a little flat. Georgia State took full advantage by taking an early lead, ultimately leading 21-7 midway through the third quarter. However, Louisiana eventually started to hit on some big plays, scoring 21 unanswered points to take a 28-21 lead before the Panthers struck back to force overtime. After Georgia State got a field goal, Elijah Mitchell ran in the game-scoring touchdown from 12 yards out. That run was Mitchell’s second of the day and gave him 164 yards on 16 carries. Levi Lewis also threw for 279 yards and two touchdowns, overcoming a couple of interceptions to keep the Ragin’ Cajuns undefeated ahead of next week’s home opener with Georgia Southern while a showdown with Appalachian State lurks in two weeks.

    Oklahoma State 16, Tulsa 7

    This was not the game the Cowboys envisioned for their season opener given OSU’s high expectations this year. The Oklahoma State offense got nothing going for much of the first half and then saw quarterback Spencer Sanders leave with an injury. When backup Ethan Bullock was ineffective, the Cowboys turned to true freshman Shane Illingworth. He turned out to be just what Oklahoma State needed, leading the Cowboys on a drive that ended with a Chuba Hubbard touchdown. Of course, the Oklahoma State defense was the real hero of the day, shutting down the Tulsa offense for most of the day. With a couple of late field goals, the Cowboys managed to survive an ugly game before next week’s Big 12 opener against West Virginia.

    Notre Dame 52, South Florida 0

    This game more or less went according to plan for Notre Dame. One week after struggling to put away The Citadel, South Florida continued to look like a team that struggled against The Citadel. The Fighting Irish were dominant from the start, quickly taking a 14-0 lead and ultimately leading 35-0 at halftime. Ian Book threw the ball just 19 times but had no passing touchdowns. However, Book found the end zone in three of his four carries. Outside of a blocked punt that Notre Dame turned into a touchdown, all six Fighting Irish touchdowns came on the ground. It was a complete effort for Notre Dame, who hits the road for the first time next week to play Wake Forest.

    USC vs Stanford: Pac-12 Analyst Pick

    No. 6 USC hosts the no. 14 Stanford Cardinal this Saturday with the Trojans listed as 6.5-point favorites and the total at 54.5.

    Stanford has competed well against USC in recent momeory, having won seven of the last nine meetings between the two sides. Stanford's also covered the spread in six of the last seven matchups at the Coliseum.

    What to Watch For

    Keep an eye on Cardinal RB Bryce Love. He averaged over five yards a carry in last year's matchup with USC, and will have the backfield to himself this time around with Christian McCaffrey in the NFL. Love finished with 180 yards on just 13 carries against Rice in Week 1.

    Love is projected to finish with 144 yards on 19 carries and 1 TD. He averages 0.7 TDs per sim. In simulated matchups where Love finished with better-than-average rushing yards and 1 or more rushing TDs, Stanford improves its winning probability from 44 percent to 59 percent.

    Vegas Odds vs AccuScore Data

    No hot trend alerts here, but AccuScore sim data definitely provides a whole lot more value on the road team than do Vegas odds. At the time of publication, the Trojans are laying 6.5 points; AccuScore sim data, however, has USC favored by just 3 points, a 3.5-point differential between the Vegas odds and sim data.

    Stanford's listed at +210 on the money line, indicating a 32 percent chance of happening. AccuScore sim data has Stanford winning about 44 percent of sims; the data would have listed the Cardinal at about +125 on the money line, indicating quite a bit of value on the +210.

    Betting Trends
    • The OVER is 4-1 in Cardinal last 5 games overall.
    • Stanford is 6-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last seven games in September.
    • Stanford is 5-1 ATS in its last six road games.
    • USC is 2-6 ATS in its last eight games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in their previous game.
