Complete List of Week 4 College Football Lines Can Be Found Below
This article is written based off of the NCAA football opening betting lines at 5:00 PM on Sunday 9/15. Updated college football odds can be found at the bottom of this post.

Dabo SwinneyWeek 4 odds are posted here at Bankroll Sports, and we are already set to break down some of the best games on the college football betting lines for the week ahead. Join us as we take our best shot at the NCAA football Vegas odds in Week 4.

What’s really lacking this week are some marquee games. There are a couple games with Top 25 impacts, but neither are really those tremendous games that feel like they should be highlighted in primetime or in that coveted 3:30 p.m. ET timeslot. The best game of the bunch is probably the duel in the Pac-12 between the Stanford Cardinal and the Arizona State Sun Devils. ASU probably had no business hanging on to beat the Wisconsin Badgers last week, but it did so in the end, and that’s all that matters. The Sun Devils are talented for sure, but they are going to have their hands full trying to score on the Stanford defense. The Cardinal have an opportunity to make a statement in this one, but the oddsmakers have caught up with them after they have failed to beat the college football odds in each of their first two games of this season. Stanford doesn’t care at all, knowing that it is 2-0. The Cardinal are giving eight to Arizona State.

The other marquee matchup pits the Notre Dame Fighting Irish up against the Michigan State Spartans. Offense probably is going to be rather optional in this one, knowing that these two teams have their flaws in a big time way on that side of the ball. However, both clubs have excellent defenses that could end up putting up some big time points in this one. Sparty is 3-0, but it is the ugliest 3-0 team in America after taking down the South Florida Bulls, Western Michigan Broncos, and Youngstown State Penguins without very much in the way of glitz or glamor, but it has a shot to make a name for itself in what will be a Top 25 eliminator game in South Bend. Notre Dame is -7, and we expect that there is going to be a big handle in this game on the NCAA football Vegas odds.

NCAA Football BetDSIThe week though, starts off with two really good games that might be two of the best of the weekend. The Clemson Tigers and the NC State Wolfpack are going to be doing battle with one another in Raleigh. If you remember right last year, this was the place that the Florida State Seminoles were beaten by this same NC State team right here at Carter Finley Stadium. If you also remember correctly, this Clemson team feels like it loses a game just like this one on the road every single season. We haven’t seen much out of QB Tajh Boyd since beating the Georgia Bulldogs in Week 1, and we think that this is going to be another one of these games that could be very sneaky. Clemson is -14, but we know that all week long, we are going to be hearing about this team being on upset alert.

The Friday night college football odds involve the best game of the year in the Mountain West. The Boise State Broncos know that they are probably going to have to beat the Fresno State Bulldogs at some point this year if they want to win the conference, but they haven’t looked good at all over the course of the start of the campaign. QB Joe Southwick has some decent numbers, but now he has to stand toe to toe with the man that is going to end up leading the conference in most statistics in all likelihood in QB Derek Carr. The Bulldogs are still thinking about the BCS, as they cracked the Top 25 this week in the Coaches’ Poll. This is their chance to state their case if they can win this game and win it handily. The oddsmakers know what they’re doing for sure by lining Fresno at -4.5, as that’s the type of number that is likely going to draw in a lot of sharp action on the Bulldogs and a lot of square action on Boise State. That being said, the Broncos know that they have the goods and the reputation to back this one up, as they have won and covered a slew of games on the road in the past. This though, is a very tough one.

In the 3:30 ET hour, two teams from the SEC East that have underachieved are going to be meeting in Gainesville, as the Tennessee Volunteers take on the Florida Gators. This is an interesting one to us. We really don’t think that the Gators are capable of scoring enough points to be laying double digits on a regular basis, but the problem is that the Volunteers might be giving up far too many points to not be double digit underdogs every single week. This is a bitter rivalry game that generally goes the way of the Gators, and this year probably isn’t going to be all that much of an exception if you listen to the oddsmakers. UF is giving 14 points at the open, and it is going to be happy to be back at home at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium after the loss two weeks ago to the Miami Hurricanes.

SportsBetting.ag FootballAnd then of course, there are all of the games that are expected to be tremendous blowouts. The truth of the matter is that this is probably going to be a suspect week unless there are some tremendous upsets that we just don’t see coming. The biggest of the expected blowouts this week pits the Louisville Cardnals up against the Florida International Golden Panthers. These two teams are on two different planets this year. The Cards are hoping to challenge for a BCS National Championship. The Golden Panthers were just absolutely trashed by the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats, who were actually favored in the game by a field goal. The college football point spread in this one? Six touchdowns.

Next up are the UCLA Bruins, who stormed to 38 unanswered points last week to the beat the Nebraska Cornhuskers. The Bruins now take on one of the worst teams on the West Coast, the New Mexico State Aggies, who have made a habit out of just getting obliterated in games like this one. The boys from Las Cruces are getting 39.5 points in this one.

The Alabama Crimson Tide, who you’d figure would be giving a tremendous amount of points to the Colorado State Rams, are obliging. The Tide are expected to roll in this one by 38 points. In fact, there are five games this week with spreads in the 30s, and there are three others that feature college football betting lines of four touchdowns or greater. Heck, there’s even a road team that is -32 this week, as the Vanderbilt Commodores are traveling to take on the Massachusetts Minutemen, who are sure to challenge as one of the worst teams in the FBS this year.

In FBS vs. FCS action, we have a lot of just ridiculous numbers. The Miami Hurricanes are the most ridiculous of the bunch, as they are laying 55 against the Savannah State Tigers. Then again, remember that Savannah State was beaten by 63 against the Troy Trojans earlier this year, and they were beaten 84-0 by the Oklahoma State Cowboys the year before. Miami is just one of three teams that are ranked in the Top 25 that are all favored by at least 50 points to open up the week, and it’s insane to think that that’s the case.

‘Totals’ finally opened up on Monday evening across the internet sportsbook scene, and we are impressed with some of the numbers. Of course, the most impressive of the bunch is the whopping 83.5 that came out for the Texas A&M Aggies and the SMU Mustangs. A&M clearly has a sieve of a defense this year, as the Aggies have allowed just gobs of points to everyone that they have faced. SMU isn’t afraid to try to outscore foes by putting 40 on the board either, and Head Coach June Jones surely isn’t shy about his scoring. A stunning seven games have ‘totals’ of at least 66, and that includes both the Thursday night and Friday night games. The ‘total’ on the other end of the spectrum is not surprisingly the one between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Michigan State Spartans. These two teams have a lot more defense than anything else, and it’s not a shock to see just a 42 on the board on the Week 4 college football odds.
