UNC football vs. Miami Hurricanes early betting odds

The UNC football program are 4.5 point underdogs heading into its week six showdown with the Miami Hurricanes.

The (4-1) North Carolina Tar Heels open up as +4.5 underdogs to the (2-2) Miami Hurricanes for their Atlantic Coast Conference showdown Saturday.

UNC will be on the road to take on Miami after winning 41-10 against Virginia Tech. On the other hand, Miami is coming off a bye week after sustaining back-to-back losses against Texas A&M and Middle Tennessee.

This game was a must-win for UNC, with many claiming the Miami Hurricanes to be a legitimate contender in the ACC and the entire NCAA. However, after Middle Tennessee survived the Hurricanes with a 45-31 upset, this game became more of a prove who is legit or not meeting between the two teams looking to gain respect.

The odds are early and are subject to change. However, as of now, UNC will be looked at as the underdogs in this match-up.

LSU vs. Tennessee: Prediction, point spread, odds, best bet for Week 6

LSU will be a slight home underdog in a rare 11 a.m. kickoff at Tiger Stadium.

It wasn’t exactly the performance Tigers fans wanted to see on Saturday night on the road against Auburn. But you can never look a gift horse in the mouth when it comes to winning at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

LSU’s 21 unanswered points to overcome a three-score deficit moved its record in SEC play to 2-0 and earned it the final spot in the AP Top 25 (though it still sits just outside the top 25 in the Coaches) as it welcomes the No. 8 Tennessee Volunteers to town in what will now be a ranked matchup.

The Volunteers come into this game fresh as they were on a bye in Week 5 after earning a huge win at home to end a five-game losing streak to Florida. They’re undefeated, boasting a pair of ranked wins, and home to contend with a Georgia team in the East that has looked vulnerable the last two weeks.

UT’s calling card is a high-octane passing offense that is one of the most productive in the country, and it could have a lot of success against an LSU defense that took a bit of a step back last weekend.

It’s likely due to this concern that the Vols open as a slim betting favorite heading into a rare 11 a.m. local kick in Death Valley.

Updated national title odds see a new favorite emerge after Week 5

The updated national championship odds have a new leader according to BetMGM.

The first Saturday of October led to some drastic revisions to the national polls and, apparently, was cause for some changes to the national championship odds. Following the events of last weekend, Ohio State has moved up to the top of the national title odds according to the folks at BetMGM. The Buckeyes now have the same odds to win this year’s College Football Playoff national championship as the defending national champions from Georgia.

It is not too surprising seeing the Buckeyes ascend to the top of the board. While Alabama was winning without their Heisman Trophy quarterback Bryce Young on the road at Arkansas and Georgia had to escape on the road against Missouri, Ohio State continued to pour it on their overmatched opponents with their latest lopsided victory this season coming against Rutgers. Since the season opener against Notre Dame, Ohio State has blasted its opposition on a weekly basis.

Here is a look at the updated national title odds from BetMGM. Penn State is still to be considered a long shot, but the Nittany Lions have a chance to change that outlook with a crucial three-game stretch after their bye week this week. Penn State will play Michigan and Ohio State before the month is over.

UNC football vs. Virginia Tech betting odds

The UNC football program are 9-point favorite heading into the week five showdown with Virginia Tech.

The (3-1) North Carolina Tar Heels will host (2-2) Virginia Tech this Saturday at 3:30 P.M. ET.

UNC is currently -9 point favorites to win the clash in the Atlantic Coast Conference showdown, crediting Drake Maye-led offense on the reasoning why. North Carolina is coming off their first season loss, losing 45-32 last weekend to Notre Dame.

The Hokies are also coming off a loss of their own, as West Virginia got the better of them last weekend 33-10. Now, we not only get to see how UNC respond to their first loss of the season, but we also get to see them do it against a team that is as hungry to get it together.

This match is vital for UNC and their ACC championship hopes. To keep it simple, UNC needs to win this game and make a statement by playing both sides of the ball. After the defeat to Notre Dame, the road to a playoff trip may be blocked, but the path to a potential ACC championship game is still available. They have to take care of business moving forward with top teams like Wake Forest and NC State still on their schedule.

Betting line vs. Auburn moves slightly in LSU’s favor in Wednesday update

The Tigers are now an 8.5-point favorite for Saturday’s road trip against Auburn.

The Tigers opened as more than a touchdown favorite in Saturday’s road contest against Auburn, and on Wednesday, that line moved even further in LSU’s direction.

The spread on this week’s SEC matchup increased by half a point from eight to 8.5, indicating that a lot of the money is coming in on LSU. That’s understandable, given Auburn’s recent struggles. It was blown out by Penn State in Week 3 and had to survive an absolutely unhinged game of football to earn a win against Missouri last weekend.

Coach Bryan Harsin is on the hot seat, and a big loss on Saturday could prove to be the final nail in the coffin. With the stakes set, here’s where the latest betting odds sit as of noon CT on Wednesday, courtesy of BetMGM.

Team Spread Total – O/U Money Line
LSU -8.5
-110
O 45.5
-110
-350
Auburn +8,5
-110
U 45.5
-110
+260

LSU and Auburn kick-off on ESPN at 6 p.m. CT on Saturday for a game that could feature some rough conditions with outer effects from Hurricane Ian.

Penn State vs. Northwestern: Prediction, point spread, odds, best bet

The early week odds from BetMGM have Penn State as a big home favorite vs. Northwestern this weekend.

Penn State hosts Northwestern in a Big Ten matchup in Week 5, and the Nittany Lions are once again being made a sizable favorite at home. Penn State is favored by more than three touchdowns against the Wildcats, which suggests Penn State has an excellent chance of entering its bye week with a clean 5-0 record before things get a tad more difficult later in October.

According to the latest odds from BetMGM, Penn State is favored by 25.5 points at the beginning of the week. Given the recent struggles of Northwestern, that could appear like a somewhat enticing line to consider in Week 5.

But let’s take a look at the odds at the beginning of the week going into this Big Ten cat fight.

  • Point spread: Penn State -25.5

LSU at Auburn: Prediction, point spread, odds, best bet

The Tigers opened as more than a touchdown favorite over Auburn.

Fresh off a 38-0 win over New Mexico — marking its first shutout since 2018 — LSU and coach [autotag]Brian Kelly[/autotag] hit the road for the first time this season on Saturday to take on the Auburn Tigers.

Auburn sits at 3-1 on the year after narrowly surviving an ugly overtime game against Missouri on Saturday. Coach Bryan Harsin is firmly on the hot seat in just his second season, and a poor performance at home against a division rival could turn up the pressure significantly.

LSU looks to extend its winning streak to four since dropping to currently undefeated Florida State in Week 1. The Tigers sit at 1-0 in the SEC after upsetting Mississippi State in Week 3.

The Tigers sit as about a touchdown favorite in this one, which kicks off at 6 p.m. CT on ESPN Saturday night.

We’ll give you the latest point spread, money line odds and over/under number, as well as the information you’ll need to make the smartest bet at BetMGM.

UNC football vs. Notre Dame early betting odds

The UNC football program is +1 underdogs heading into its week four showdown with Notre Dame.

The (3-0) North Carolina Tar Heels are back in action this weekend, hosting (1-2) Notre Dame. A year with upsets and blown leads makes this matchup critical for North Carolina to prove their unblemished record is legit, shutting out the doubters.

Neither team is currently in the Associated Press top 25, with both having question marks in the level of play this season. UNC’s biggest issue has been their defense with a lackluster schedule, raising concern if the record is based on the teams faced so far. Meanwhile, Notre Dame started the season ranked 5th on the AP poll, lost 21-10 to Ohio State University, then lost 26-21 to Marshall in a shocking defeat.

North Carolina’s biggest win came in the 63-61 nail-bitter over Appalachian State led by quarterback Drake Maye, who completed 24 of 36 passes for 352 passing yards, and five touchdowns, including one rushing.

Penn State vs. Central Michigan: Prediction, point spread, odds, best bet

Penn State opens as a big favorite at home this weekend against Central Michigan according to BetMGM

After a second road win in three weeks, Penn State returns home to Beaver Stadium for a matchup with Central Michigan in Week 4. The Nittany Lions are surging in the national rankings following a decisive victory at Auburn in Week 3. As the bar continues to be raised for the Nittany Lions, Penn State is opening as a massive favorite at home this week against the Chippewas from the MAC.
