College football odds: Week 10 opening line report

Coach Les Miles has played it safe. Despite his potential to pop off in front of the microphone, not even Miles is confident enough to speak out of turn as his No. 1 LSU Tigers prepare to meet No. 2 Alabama in this season’s Game of the Year on Saturday.

“We will be challenged,” Miles said. “And we look forward to meeting that challenge."

And so after a bye week, in which we had to endure some ho-hum matchups while the Tigers and Crimson Tide rested, it is indeed LSU-Alabama Week. And the top spot in the BCS hangs in the balance as college football turns its eyes toward Tuscaloosa, Ala.

Alabama coach Nick Saban has been equally politically correct. Now, he’s less likely to make mistakes in press conference, so it’s been status quo with the Crimson Tide.

“It's everybody's choice to be responsible,” he said, “and be ready to play.”

Well, here’s thinking that both teams indeed will be ready. Both teams are 8-0 overall, and 5-0 in the SEC. Both teams have their sights set on Atlanta, for the league title game, and New Orleans, for the BCS title game.

But only one, for sure, will make the former. And it’s likely that only one will make the latter. Which is why this premier, primetime matchup figures to gain perhaps the most action of any game all year in Nevada.

“We expect it to be pretty big at the windows, yes,” Pete Korner of Esportclub, LLC, in Las Vegas told ***********. “This is a national championship style game. The winner will have a great shot, and there’s so much interest. With it being at night, too, you figure to get more action.”

Terry Cox, the director of the race and sportsbook at the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino in Reno, concurs.

“Most likely, it will be the most heavily bet game of the year, to date,” Cox told ***********. “And it will be a big weekend overall, especially with the Breeders Cup, too.”

With so much interest in this game, Korner has kept a close eye on this game for weeks. He and his line consultant group, Sports Club, originally recommended a line of Alabama -5 to the sportsbooks two weeks ago. Some used that line, and it was immediately pounded with LSU money last week. The line dipped to Alabama -4, as a result, but it eventually settled back at -5.

“Should be a great game, and we figure to still see LSU money in the early going,” Korner said. “But we like the line. It’s at now where we had it originally, so we’ll sit back and see what they do with it.”

And with that, let’s take a look at some of next week’s other marquee games:

Florida State (-16) at Boston College

Now that the national spotlight is off the Seminoles, Florida State has actually recovered into a moderately successful season ... depending on your standards. But Florida State has always been known to lay an egg on Thursday night, dating back to the 1990s, so the Eagles may have a shot here in the cold of Boston. But not much of one.

“Florida State is playing really well, and I see this going up before it comes down,” Korner said. “We have no respect for Boston College at this point.”

USC (-21) at Colorado

Let’s throw this game in the mix because it’s a Friday Night Special, it will be bet heavily, and it will be interesting to see how the Trojans respond after their overtime thriller vs. Stanford.

“Colorado is still not showing anything this year,” said Korner, who recommended Trojans -23 to his clients. “USC can score, they still showed well in the loss to Stanford, and this line may even go up.”

The Wynn opened at Colorado +21 but the game was bet up over the 3-TD spread pretty quickly.

Texas A&M (+14) at Oklahoma

The Sooners got back on track vs. Kansas State, and while they still need a lot of help to get back into the title game mix, they should still have enough motivation to get by an inconsistent Aggies team with ease.

“We just didn’t want to get caught short here,” Korner said. “Maybe we overvalued Oklahoma here a little. I mean Texas A&M is good, not great, but they’re capable of covering, certainly. But Oklahoma is in the must-win category now, and the line’s only going to go up from here.”

Korner’s line consultant group, Sports Club, recommended Sooners -16 but the Wynn went with just a 14-point spread on this one.

Kansas State (+21.5) at Oklahoma State

Oh boy, the Wildcats were exposed vs. Oklahoma, and more of the same should be in store versus the Cowboys, who figure to be the No. 2 team in the BCS next week, ahead of the LSU-Alabama loser.

“Another big number, and another big game that we couldn’t be caught short on,” Korner said. “This will be a high-scoring game, and Kansas State can score. But I see no problems here for Oklahoma State. None.”

Northwestern (+19) at Nebraska

Not much of a game here, but there should be plenty of points and it will be interesting to see how Nebraska responds now that they are in prime position for a Big Ten title in their first year in the league.

“The players are betting Nebraska every week. There’s no doubt about it,” said Korner, who sent out Cornhuskers -21. “This is another big favorite, so let’s see what they do with this line. Nebraska is on the outside looking in for the national picture. But they have a chance at the conference title, so why be cheap here with them?”

This one was bet down to 17.5 Sunday night at the Wynn.

Stanford (-21) at Oregon State

On a national stage, hey, the Cardinal won a tough game at USC. Was it pretty? No. Was the defense weak? Yes. But remember, this is Stanford and Andrew Luck. Which means the money is going to come in on them, and hard. So, the pros have to be prepared.

“Stanford, on the road with Luck, shouldn’t have any problems,” Korner said. “Strange game for them vs. USC, but Stanford will be back to normal here.”

Notre Dame (-13.5) at Wake Forest

Always interesting to see where the pros stand on Notre Dame. Not much glamour in this matchup, but the Irish need wins at this point, and need to continue to build momentum. And a big win over an ACC team would certainly help.

“I really wanted to go high here, and maybe I overvalued them, but it’s Notre Dame, and they will draw money,” Korner said. “They’re coming off a win, not a great win vs. Navy, but a win nonetheless. I expect another big performance, and the line, I feel, will be a bit kicked up from here by gametime.”

Korner went higher (+14) than the Wynn’s opening number, but only by a half point.

South Carolina (+4.5) at Arkansas

The Gamecocks have played in the shadow of the Tigers and Crimson Tide all year, and rightfully so. They are boring on offense, and often times inconsistent on defense. But Steve Spurrier’s crew is finding ways to get it done, and this should be a nice little SEC sidebar to the big game.

“This is a good game in the SEC and this is a fair number,” Korner said, who sent out Razorbacks -6. “As far as line movements the rest of this week, I expect it to be steady.”

Oregon (-16.5) at Washington

Surely, the Ducks were watching USC score points all over the place versus Stanford, and thought they could do even better. They’re probably right, but we will have to wait for Nov. 12 for that matchup. For now, it’s a road date at the Huskies, and plenty of chalk.

“Again, another game with a big favorite on the road. But Oregon can score, and they have to win,” Korner said. “This is one of those times, when you can probably take a flyer on a big dog here at home, but I’d rather be wrong with Oregon and get the chance to pull for them when it gets late. In a situation like this, Oregon is going to cover the number more times than not.”

Breakdown - LSU at Alabama

October 31, 2011

The “Game of the Year” in college football that everyone had hoped would come to fruition is finally upon us. Fortunately, No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama have both done their part to make it happen by each coming in with unblemished records. The winner of Saturday's game will have a clear path to the BCS Championship.
Las Vegas sports books have received money on LSU from the very beginning, all the way back in June when the Golden Nugget initially opened Alabama as a 9-point favorite in their first posting of the lines for “Games of Year.” There wasn’t enough action to move the number initially with most people waiting to see what happened early on with LSU against Oregon in a key matchup to kickoff the season.

Despite only having 98 yards passing and 273 yards overall, LSU used four Ducks turnovers to win convincingly, 40-27. Since then, the debate has gone on with who the No. 1 team in the nation really is with a few different teams occupying the top slot. Now, we really get to see who it is with matters settled on the field.

A few weeks ago, several sports books started posting odds on the game with the starting point being Alabama -6 ½. The number has been pushed down with LSU money coming in to the point where the consensus around town ranges from -4 to -5.

Former Cantor oddsmaker Kenny White made Alabama -7 three weeks ago citing Alabama playing Tuscaloosa is worth at least five points, especially in a big matchup like this. But at what point does the Alabama home-field edge start to decrease when talking about a top-ranked team like LSU visiting as opposed to welcoming the likes of North Texas and Vanderbilt.

It’s very apparent by the line movement that bettors don’t believe Alabama’s home field is worth five, nor would Alabama be favored on a neutral field.

If we look at each team’s body of work, it’s hard to decide who to like more, especially considering bettors have been cashing in on both teams all season. LSU is a perfect 3-0 against the spread on the road, 6-2 ATS overall. Meanwhile, Alabama is 7-1 ATS with its only blemish coming against North Texas as 47-point favorite, a game they won 41-0.

Alabama allows only 44.9 yards rushing per game while LSU allows 76.6 yards. Alabama leads the nation with only 6.9 points scored against per game with LSU not far behind at 11.5 PPG.

They’ve had two common opponents this season, each easily disposing of Florida and Tennessee. LSU has beat five raked opponents to Alabama’s three, suggesting that the Tigers strength of schedule should bode well for them. LSU won impressively in back-to back road games earlier this year at Mississippi State and West Virginia while Alabama beat a punch-less Penn State offense and Florida on the road with a quality win against Arkansas at home.

Then we have the great storyline of current Alabama coach Nick Saban who won a national title for LSU in 2003 before leaving for the NFL. Saban won a title for the Crimson Tide in 2009 and has split the four meetings since coming back.

Current LSU coach Les Myles has done a great job over his tenure despite constant criticism trying to coach in the shadow of what Saban did for them while in charge. It also hasn’t helped that Myles has a few clock management gaffes over his reign to irk many of the Bayou supporters.

Alabama would seem to have a slight edge in coaching, they have home field and also have the best player in the nation with running back Trent Richardson moving the chains for them. First-year starting quarterback A.J. McCarron has done what Saban has asked of him, which is 'just don’t make any mistakes.'

McCarron really hasn’t been put into a spot where he’s been asked to win the game and you’d have to think at some juncture that McCarron is going to have to make some plays in key moments. This should be the major key to the game in deciding who wins and who loses, and for Las Vegas purposes, who gets the money.

I’ll take the coach, his defense, the home field and Richardson in this one and feel comfortable laying the points. And if Stanford loses to Oregon on Nov. 12 and Oklahoma State falls to Oklahoma on Dec. 3, I wouldn't be opposed to seeing these two teams go at it again on a neutral field for the title. Whoever loses this game shouldn't be penalized too much despite the loss coming later than the likes of an Oklahoma or Oregon.

Fearless Prediction: Alabama 27 LSU 16

Puttin' on the Stats

October 30, 2011

With Halloween now in the rear view mirror, it's on to the best time of the College Football season - the month of November! That's because the combination of stats and angles combine to bring us the best winning edges of the year.

Our 'Puttin' On The Stats' theory is a dandy, and best of all it's simple and it wins. What we are looking to do is to 'Play On' any team as a dog if they've won all - or all but one - of their games in totally yards ITS (In The Stats) heading into November. Conversely, we will look to 'Play Against' any favorite that has lost all - or all but one - of their games in total yards ITS.

As we head to Thanksgiving, here's our list of 'Play On' (as dog) and 'Play Against' (as favorite) teams to fatten up on for the balance of the 2011 season:

Play On Dogs:
Alabama
Baylor (vs. Oklahoma 11/19)
Boise State
Clemson (at South Carolina 11/26)
Georgia (at Georgia Tech 11/26)
Houston
Illinois (vs. Michigan 11/12, vs. Wisconsin 11/19)
Oklahoma (at Oklahoma State, 12/3)
Oklahoma State
Oregon (at Stanford, 11/12)
Southern Mississippi
Stanford
UCF (at Southern Miss, 11/12)
Utah State
West Virginia
Wisconsin

Play Against Favorites:
Florida Atlantic (vs. UAB 11/26)
Idaho
Indiana
Kentucky
Maryland
Memphis
Minnesota
Mississippi
New Mexico
UAB

There you have it! Pass the gravy and let the November feast begin…

Oklahoma Sooners Look To Pile On Texas A&M Aggies

Let's cut to the chase. When the final seconds tick off the clock at Memorial Stadium this Saturday in Norman, the Oklahoma Sooners will have at least doubled up the Texas A&M Aggies on the scoreboard.

Bob Stoops' troops might even make the point total on their own.

November was supposed to have provided something close to a playoff in the Big 12. That's really no longer the case. All signs point to the Dec. 3 clash in Stillwater between the Sooners and Oklahoma State Cowboys serving as the conference championship, but this battle between Oklahoma and Texas A&M no longer means what many thought it would at the start of the 2011 season.

College football fans have a right to be angry at both the Sooners and Aggies. Had they each played up to their potential, this contest would be pitting No. 3 against No. 4, making for the most anticipated Saturday ever on the college gridiron coupled with BCS No. 1 LSU meeting No. 2 Alabama in Tuscaloosa.

Then again, maybe Texas A&M has played up to its potential.

It was the same song, third verse for the Aggies last Saturday at Kyle Field. A far too familiar second-half collapse this time found Texas A&M falling to 5-3 (2-6 against the spread) with a 38-31 loss to Missouri in overtime. Mike Sherman's troops turned it over three times in wasting this 11-point halftime lead; see blowing a 17-point lead at home to Oklahoma State and 18-point lead at Cowboys Stadium to Arkansas for prior implosions.

Much was made about the Aggies defeating the Sooners, Cornhuskers and Longhorns in 2010. It marked the first – and apparently the last – time Texas A&M had taken down that threesome in the same season. Not much is being made right now about the Ags losing to Oklahoma State, Arkansas and Missouri two straight seasons. If it wasn't for the visit from Kansas in a couple of weeks, A&M might not even reach the six-win minimum to become bowl eligible for 2011.

In steady decline since opening the season in the top 10 of the Don Best Linemakers Poll, the Aggies are currently tied for 21st and have disappeared from the BCS Standings.

Oklahoma began the season sharing the top spot at Don Best with Alabama, and comes into this match No. 3 (BCS No. 6).

The Sooners (7-1 SU, 5-3 ATS) bounced back from their only loss by whipping the Kansas State Wildcats in Manhattan, 58-17. Trailing 17-14 early in the second quarter, Oklahoma took charge to score the game's final 44 points.

Landry Jones threw for a school record 505 yards on a 35-for-47 afternoon, five of his completions going for touchdowns. The OU offense didn't miss top running back Dominique Whaley who broke his left ankle at the very start of the afternoon and will miss the rest of the season.

Oklahoma's defense registered seven sacks and limited the Wildcats to less than 60 yards through the air. The Sooners stop unit isn't great, but it will definitely be the best 'D' that Ryan Tannehill and the Aggies have come up against in '11.

I was only half-joking about OU jumping the total by itself. The Sooners have cashed the 'over' themselves twice in the past eight meetings, both times right here on this field. Last year's tally was in the 62-63 point range and never really got close in A&M's 33-19 win at home.

We should see 70 or more for this year's total once it's released, though Don Best Sports' Kenny White likes it a bit lower around 65. The 'under' a season ago was a very rare sight in this series. 'Over' bettors have thickened their bankrolls seven of the last nine matchups, and each of the last four games played in Oklahoma.

The Aggies haven't won in Norman since 1997, their first Big 12 trip to Memorial Stadium. Since then, Oklahoma has won six straight at home over A&M, outscoring the Ags by a 302-70 margin.

Opening numbers in Las Vegas had the Sooners laying 13½, and that number should climb to 14 and beyond before the game kicks off at 3:30 p.m. (ET). Television coverage will be provided by ABC and ESPN2.

There is rain in the Norman forecast for Saturday morning into the noon hour according to the very early projections. It's just a 30 percent chance, so even a late arrival of the wet stuff may not hinder the slaughter. Strong southwesterly winds above 20 mph will also be shifting to a rather gentle north breeze (7-10 mph) with afternoon highs in the low-70s.

College Football Betting Preview Week 10

The Stanford Cardinal had ‘Luck’ on their side with a thrilling triple-overtime win (56-48) at USC last Saturday night. That helped propel them to the BCS No. 4 spot and they’re looking for more heading into Week 10.

Stanford trailed USC 34-27 after quarterback Andrew Luck got intercepted for a touchdown with 3:08 remaining. That would have sent others into a shell, but the Heisman favorite engineered a 76-yard march in just over two minutes to send the game into OT, with three more clutch touchdown drives following.

The game was officially a 'push' on the closing 8-point line, though some lucky bettors won with Stanford -7½ while some USC backers who got the +8½ spread were also celebrating.

The Cardinal victory at a top-25 team bumped their computer ranking from No. 9 to No. 6. That was enough to pass previous BCS No. 4 Boise State and No. 5 Clemson. The former was on a bye week and the latter proved it was not ready for prime-time by losing at ACC rival Georgia Tech 31-17.

Pac-12 Stanford (8-0 straight up, 7-0-1 against the spread) now looks to avoid a letdown when it visits Oregon State (2-6 SU, 3-5 ATS) as 20-point favorites on Saturday. The Beavers have played better after a woeful 0-4 SU start, but are coming off a 27-8 loss at Utah as 5 ½-point ‘dogs.

The Stanford game and all others take a back seat to the No. 1 vs. No. 2 mega-showdown between LSU (8-0 SU, 6-2 ATS) and Alabama (8-0 SU, 7-1 ATS). Both teams are in the SEC West which means there’s no chance for a rematch and one team’s national title hopes will likely be dashed. 'Bama is a 4 ½-point home favorite and is looking for revenge after a 24-21 loss in Baton Rouge last year as 6 ½-point ‘chalk.’

Oklahoma State (8-0 SU, 7-1 ATS) is No. 3 in the BCS and a 21-point home favorite over Kansas State (7-1 SU, 6-2 ATS). BCS No. 14 Kansas State is getting respect at these odds after just getting blown out by the first top-10 opponent it’s faced, 58-17 at home to Oklahoma.

OSU easily ‘covered’ a 14 ½-point spread at home against Baylor last week (59-24). The 83 combined points scored only ‘pushed’ the humungous total, with that number opening at 79½.

Oklahoma (7-1 SU, 5-3 ATS) is at least back in BCS contention, ranking highest among the 1-loss teams at No. 6. It hosts Texas A&M (5-3 SU, 2-6 ATS), which has dropped out of the top-25 after another heartbreaking defeat, 38-31 versus Missouri in overtime. All three of A&M’s losses have come after leading by double-digits at halftime.

The Sooners are 13 ½-point favorites and the home team is 11-2 ATS in the last 13 meetings between the teams.

There’s another top-10 BCS matchup from the SEC when No. 9 South Carolina visits No. 7 Arkansas. Both teams are 7-1 SU and 4-4 ATS. South Carolina is battling Georgia for top spot in the East Division, but has only averaged 14 PPG the last two games and is without injured running back Marcus Lattimore.

The Razorbacks have taken three of their last four wins by 5-points or less. They’re 4-point favorites this week and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 against South Carolina.

Wisconsin (6-2 SU, 5-2-1 ATS) lost via a late, long touchdown pass for the second week in a row, this time 33-29 at Ohio State. The good news is the No. 20 Badgers return home to face Purdue where they are 5-0 SU and ATS, with the average score 50-10.

Purdue (4-4 SU and ATS) is 0-3 SU and 1-2 ATS on the road, most recently losing 36-14 at Michigan, and has a huge task in Madison as 26-point underdogs.

USC Trojans Travel To Take On Colorado Buffaloes

A change of scenery to the Pac-12 didn't help out the Colorado Buffaloes this year, as they are still struggling mightily just to compete in conference games. On Friday night, they welcome one of the top teams in the conference to Folsom Field where the USC Trojans pay their first visit with these two teams as conference foes.

Friday night's NCAA football betting affair kicks off from Boulder at 9:00 (ET), and there will be live television coverage on ESPN and ESPN3.com.

The first year for head coach Jon Embree hasn't been a good one for the Buffaloes (1-8 SU, 2-7 ATS). They are clearly the worst team in the Pac-12, and the argument could be made that they have the worst team in the country amongst the AQ schools.

Conference play has definitely not treated Colorado well. The team is 0-6 SU and just 1-5 ATS. Since playing close encounters at home with the California Golden Bears (36-33 overtime defeat) and the Washington State Cougars (31-27 loss), there hasn't been a reasonable game in the bunch. Over the last four weeks, all of which have been Pac-12 games, the Buffaloes have been blasted by the aggregate score of 193-45.

The offense should be a heck of a lot better on the ground than it is. Rodney Stewart is a talented back and has over 3,200 rushing yards for his career. However, he suffered a knee injury against the Washington Huskies three weeks ago and hasn't played since. The hope is to get Stewart back on the field on Friday night.

If Stewart does play, it is only going to help a rushing attack that ranks a dreadful No. 114 in the land at 90.0 YPG.

USC (6-2 SU, 4-4 ATS) lost its equivalent of the National Championship Game last week in crippling fashion against the Stanford Cardinal. There is no shame in losing to one of the top teams in the country, but the faithful at the Los Angeles Coliseum had to be crushed with the 56-48 defeat in the third overtime.

This is definitely going to be a showcase for the Men of Troy to put up some outstanding offensive numbers. So far this season, the team is averaging a healthy 432.5 YPG and 32.4 PPG.

The offense got off to a bit of a slow start, scoring just 42 points combined in games against the Minnesota Golden Gophers and Utah Utes. But since that point, Southern Cal has put at least 30 on the board in all but one of its six games.

Matt Barkley threw for 284 yards and three touchdowns against Stanford, raising his season totals to 2,290 yards and 22 TDs. The junior needs just 184 more passing yards to reach 8,000 in his career. By season's end, he could be one of just three quarterbacks in USC history to have thrown for over 9,000 yards, joining the great Matt Leinart (10,693 yards) and Carson Palmer (11,388 yards).

The Buffaloes are just 5-16 ATS in their last 21 conference games, though that dates back to their days in the Big XII. The good news is they are 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 games played here at Folsom Field.

USC has covered four games in a row on the road against teams with a losing home record, and is 17-8 ATS in its last 25 games following an SU defeat.

The last time these teams played each other was in 1992, a 40-3 win for the Trojans as short underdogs.

Southern Cal is getting the nod of the oddsmakers by 21 ½-points, up from the open on Sunday night of 21. The total has been set at 62.

Mother Nature shouldn't provide any additional challenges for this prime-time game. Temperatures should dip into the mid-40s after the sun sets, but there is virtually no chance for rain.

Kansas State Wildcats Battle Oklahoma State Cowboys

The Kansas State Wildcats will try to bounce back from their first loss of the season on Saturday against the lone unbeaten team in the conference, the third-ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys.

Kansas State (7-1, 4-1 Big 12) is coming off a 58-17 home loss to the Oklahoma Sooners last week while Oklahoma State (8-0, 5-0) rolled the Baylor Bears 59-24 to stay perfect.

Game time is scheduled for 8:00 p.m. (ET) with television coverage provided by ESPN2. The Cowboys continue to be serious contenders for both the conference title and national championship, and they opened as 21-point favorites according to the Don Best odds screen.

The Wildcats looked more like pretenders against the Sooners and proved why they were not a member of the Top 20 in the Don Best Linemakers Poll despite a 7-0 start. They fell behind 14-3 against Oklahoma in the first quarter and were blanked 35-0 in the second half. Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein simply could not keep up with the fast-paced Sooners on the scoreboard throwing for just 58 yards while also pacing the ground game with 92 yards.

Oklahoma QB Landry Jones shredded the Wildcats secondary for a school record 505 yards and five touchdowns.

Kansas State will likely face a similar problem on the road against an Oklahoma State team that is off to its best start since 1945. The Cowboys jumped out to a 42-0 lead on Baylor behind four rushing touchdowns from running back Joseph Randle, who finished with 152 yards on just 14 carries.

Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon also had a monster game with 13 catches for 172 yards and two touchdowns.

The game between the Cowboys and Bears also made news from a betting perspective for reaching the highest ‘over/under’ total in the history of college football at 83 points. The total opened at 79½ on the Don Best odds screen and pushed on the final number of 83.

Oklahoma State has a lot to gain from beating the Wildcats, as the team figures to jump to No. 2 in the BCS rankings with a victory since one of the top two teams in the country will lose their next game. That’s because the Alabama Crimson Tide will host the Louisiana State Tigers on Saturday.

The Cowboys have just two road games remaining at Texas Tech and Iowa State before hosting the Sooners in the annual Bedlam rivalry game on December 3.

Kansas State is 5-2 against the spread in the last seven meetings with Oklahoma State with the ‘over’ cashing in four of the past five. The Wildcats had also covered their last six games overall prior to losing to Oklahoma. The Cowboys have covered seven straight overall since failing to beat the 38-point line in a 61-34 win over Louisiana-Lafayette in their season opener.

The weather could be a factor in Stillwater on Saturday, as there is a 30 percent chance of isolated thunderstorms moving through the area with the high temperature expected to reach 69.

Stanford Cardinal Make Next Stop At Oregon State Beavers

The Stanford Cardinal's march towards the National Championship Game is on. In what should amount to be nothing more than a minor bump in the road, Stanford will take on the Oregon State Beavers in college football betting action on Saturday.

Kickoff from Reser Stadium is set for 3:30 p.m. (ET), and you can find this game televised regionally on ABC or ESPN GamePlan.

There are a plethora of coaches in the Pac-12 that have to be wondering whether they will still have jobs after the season is over, and Mike Riley is one of them. Riley's Beavers (2-6 SU, 3-5 ATS) have been dreadful, and the threat is there to lose 10 games. Barring an upset of epic proportions in this game and an amazing turnaround at the end of the season, Oregon State will miss a bowl game for a second straight year.

The defense's numbers are not atrocious, but they're not exactly stellar either. The Beavers are allowing 377.5 YPG, ranking No. 55 in the nation. However, there hasn't been a game this year in which the team has allowed fewer than 21 points, and there is virtually no way that streak gets broken in this one.

An inconsistent offense is still looking for more out of signal caller Sean Mannion. The reshirt freshman is leading a very young offense that ranks No. 90 in the country in scoring at just 23.0 PPG. The good news is that he has thrown for 2,195 yards, leading a passing attack that is among the best in the conference at an average of 289.0 YPG. The bad news is that his TD/INT ratio is rather dreadful at 10/13.

Meanwhile, the Cardinal (8-0 SU, 7-0-1 ATS) just keep on rolling and they're inching closer to the top of the BCS rankings as well following last Saturday's thrilling 56-48 win at USC in triple overtime.

Stanford ranks No. 3 in our Don Best Linemakers Poll, and moved up to No. 4 in this week's BCS rankings. The team knows that if it can win out and finish at 13-0, it will have a compelling argument to play for all the marbles in the BCS National Championship Game.

Simply put, the Stanford offense is flat out awesome. The team ranks No. 9 in the nation in total offense at 505.8 YPG, and is in the Top 20 in both rushing and passing. The end result is 49.5 PPG, the third best tally in the country.

Dating back to last year, the Cardinal have scored at least 37 points in 11 straight games, and the team has scored at least 27 points in all but one game dating back to October 2009.

Andrew Luck is currently the favorite on the Heisman Trophy odds, coming in around 2/1 at most sportsbooks. He is seemingly a lock to be the No. 1 overall pick in next year's NFL Draft, and he is only adding to his already impressive collegiate resume.

Luck has thrown for 8,131 yards and 68 TDs in his career against just 16 INTs, and has completed over 66 percent of his passes.

Stanford might be an unstoppable force at the betting window right now, but hasn't had a great history against the Beavers. OSU is 10-4 ATS over the last 14 meetings of these teams, though it was shut out 38-0 last year in Palo Alto.

It should be no surprise that the Cardinal are getting the nod by 21 points in this one. The early total on the college football odds has been posted at 62.

Weather could slow Luck and the Stanford offense on Saturday. Temperatures are expected to be in the mid-40s all day long with dreary, rainy conditions expected not just on Saturday, but throughout the weekend.
