Best College Football Predictions for Week 4
One of the college picks the model is high on in Week 4: No. 22 Texas (-4.5) covers on the road against Texas Tech in a game at 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday. The Longhorns are off to a 3-0 ATS start this season, covering with room to spare in all three games. The Red Raiders, meanwhile, are yet to cover against two FBS opponents.
Quarterback Quinn Ewers (collarbone) remains out for Texas, but the Longhorns had quarterback Hudson Card and running back Bijan Robinson, who both had injury issues, on the field last week at victory against UTSA. Card is expected to throw for nearly 300 yards and three touchdowns in this one, while Robinson crosses the 100-yard mark in simulations. Texas covers well over 60% of the time, while over 60 hits with 10 points to spare.
Another of the model’s college football picks: No. 7 USC has no problem going on the road against -6.5 coverage against Oregon State in a 9:30 p.m. ET start. Both teams played Fresno State in their last FBS game, which can serve as a good base for this one. USC beat the Bulldogs 45-17, while Oregon State survived in a 35-32 victory.
Lincoln Riley’s impact on the USC program was evident for three weeks, and the Trojans picked up three wins and three covers. They’ve put up at least 40 points in every game, and SportsLine’s model projects nearly 50 this week as USC covers nearly 70% of the time. See what other teams the model likes here.
