College Football Odds: Picking The Rivalry Week Games

The computers are predicting high scores for LSU-Arkansas, Michigan-Ohio State and Houston-Tulsa. Will the underdogs spoil the day? All content comes courtesy of OddsShark.com

If the OddsShark.com college football scores engine is right, there will be 100 points scored in Friday's Houston vs Tulsa matchup in the C-USA.

And since the scores predictor got off to a 2-0 ATS start Tuesday and Thursday, maybe it's calibrated correctly to pick lots of Rivalry Week winners this weekend.

Nebraska could lose outright against Iowa and LSU will beat Arkansas, but not cover the spread against them. This again assumes the machine is correct based on opening college football odds gathered by Odds Shark.

Michigan will beat Ohio State 41-28 and cover the point spread in that historical Big Ten clash. And Georgia will beat Georgia Tech, but won't cover the spread in a 45-40 result.

"The prediction tool wasn't great last week at 25-31 ATS but it seems to be clicking so far and I wouldn't be surprised to see it hit 65% on Rivalry Weekend," said Mike Pickett. 

"Interesting to see it has Iowa State pulling another upset, this time against Oklahoma. But it is predicting an ATS win, not an outright one like last week against Oklahoma State."
