NCAAF Week 4 Betting Picks

The college football season has moved on to Week 4. Week 4 is traditionally the first weekend where a majority of the college football games are "in conference" games. While there has been some early season conference games, this week is when they really get rolling.

I have three games that I'm targeting this week as my "Top 3 Picks". Let's jump right in and take a look at those.

Oklahoma State Cowboys -11 over TCU Horned Frogs

There may not be a more underrated college football team in 2017 than Mike Gundy and the Oklahoma State Cowboys. The Cowboys are an outstanding offensive team that has scored 162 points in their first three games. The Cowboys have made quick and easy work of Tulsa, South Alabama and Pittsburgh. Mason Rudolph has turned himself into a Heisman candidate with more than 375 passing yards on the season.

The TCU Horned Frogs come into the game ranked 16th in the nation, but are going to have a tough time with the Cowboys. The Horned Frogs do not quite have the offense that they have had in previous seasons, but this team can still really score. The Horned Frogs have scored 147 points in their first three games. The Horned Frogs toughest test was on the road at Arkansas, and their defense took care of them by allowing just a single touchdown.

This game has "offensive shootout" written all over it, but there is one offense that is head and shoulders above the other. The Oklahoma State Cowboys are going to win this game by more than two touchdowns. Take the Cowboys -11 in this game.

Michigan Wolverines -9 over Purdue Boilermakers

Michigan has won all three of their games, yet people are disappointed with the way they are playing. Purdue took a "good loss" to a ranked team, by playing them close, and then looked good in their next two games.

The Michigan Wolverines have wins over Florida, Cincinnati and Air Force. The Wolverines have not covered the spread in their last two games, after getting the job done against the Gators. Michigan has one of the top defensive units in college football. The Wolverines are allowing just 14.5 points per game in the first three games. The offense likes what they are getting out of running back Ty Isaac, with 112 yards per game on the ground.

The Purdue Boilermakers held their own, losing by just a touchdown to Louisville in the opener. After that, blowout wins over Ohio and Missouri have the Boilermakers thinking bowl game. It will be tough with games against Michigan and Wisconsin in two of their next three games, but David Blough has been tremendous. His just under 600 yards and 6 touchdowns leads the offense thus far. No matter how good Purdue has played, they are in big trouble in this game. Michigan is on another level compared to the Boilermakers. Take Michigan -9 to the house in this game.

Auburn Tigers -18 over Missouri Tigers

In the SEC -  the battle of Tigers will take place in Columbia, Missouri. The Auburn Tigers are 2-1 on the season, with wins over Georgia Southern and Mercer. Their lone loss came in a bloodbath against Clemson. The Tigers are led by stud running back Kamryn Pettway, who has three touchdowns this season.

For Missouri, their defense has been woeful. The Tigers have allowed 109 points in their first three games. Their recent loss was an embarrassing one, where they were smacked by Purdue to the tune of 35-3. Missouri's Drew Lock had a monster season opener, which is part of the reason for his 900 passing yards and 8 touchdowns.

Missouri cannot play enough defense to win this game. This has the looks of a 27-6 type game. Take the Auburn Tigers over the Missouri Tigers on Saturday.

Those three games are my favorite games for this week. If you really look close at the schedule it's kind of a "boring" week of games. Only two "Top 25" matchups taking place and a number of blowouts on the schedule. Regardless, I'll enjoy some more football action on Saturday and hopefully you will too.
