CFB Betting Brief: #6 Florida Heavy Favorite Over LSU 12/11/2020

  • The Wisconsin-Iowa matchup O/U is set at 41.5.
  • The #6 Florida Gators are favored to beat the LSU Tigers by 23 points in their SEC matchup.
  • The UCLA Bruins are +120 underdogs on the moneyline against the #15 USC Trojans (-140).

LOS ANGELES – The march towards selecting the four best teams for the College Football Playoff (CFP) goes on as the NCAA heads towards the final stretch of the season.

Despite a flurry of football games being cancelled or postponed across the SEC, Big Ten, and Pac-12 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, college Football bettors will still have no shortage of quality betting options Saturday.

There is a trio of games featuring teams ranked in the Top 25 facing conference rivals that could provide a variety of bets to hit at legal sports betting sites.

Wisconsin Badgers vs No. 16 Iowa Hawkeyes Odds @ 3:30 p.m. EST

  • Moneyline: Badgers (-130) vs. #16 Hawkeyes (+110)
  • Spread: Badgers (-2)
  • O/U: 41.5

The Big Ten Conference matchup between the Wisconsin Badgers and the 16th ranked Iowa Hawkeyes is a matchup worth betting on. Recently, this matchup has been dominated by Wisconsin as they’ve won seven of the last eight games SU. Playing at Kinnick Stadium has not been a problem for the Badgers as they’ve won five straight games over Iowa as the road team.

However, this might be where the Hawkeyes break the streak and defend home turf. The Hawkeyes have just been the better team as of late as they’re currently on a five-game winning streak and are somehow not favored to win this game. This will be a low-scoring game but take the Hawkeyes on the moneyline to beat the Badgers at home.

Winner: Iowa Hawkeyes ML (+110)

No. 15 USC Trojans vs. UCLA Bruins Odds @ 7:30 p.m. EST

  • Spread: Trojans (-2.5)
  • Moneyline: #15 USC Trojans (-140) vs. Bruins (+120)
  • O/U: 62

The #15 USC Trojans and UCLA Bruins rivalry is among the oldest in college football and the betting odds for this game reflect just how close of a game this will likely be. The Trojans come into this game undefeated and have won their last seven games against Pac-12 opponents.

The Trojans may win this game, but the Bruins have been better ATS posting a 4-1 record compared to USC’s 2-2 mark. With that in mind take UCLA to continue its success ATS as there isn’t a sizable talent gap in talent between these teams.

Winner: UCLA ATS (+2.5)

LSU Tigers vs. No. 6 Florida Gators Odds @ 7 p.m. EST

  • Spread: Gators (-23)
  • Moneyline: Tigers (+850) vs. Gators (-1700)
  • O/U: 68.5

The LSU Tigers are going through a rough time defending their championship as they’re 3-5 on the season and likely won’t even play in a bowl game. On the other side, the sixth-ranked Florida Gators are 8-1 and are looking to keep their CFP playoff hopes alive.

The Gators are clearly the better team and shouldn’t lose this game. This being a rivalry game means LSU cannot be counted out, but they’ll be no match for Heisman candidate Kyle Trask. Taking Gators ATS here isn’t a given but it’s a much better option than taking the Gators -1700 odds on the moneyline based on the return alone.

Winner: Gators ATS (-23)
