A fount of college football information can be found at The Gambling Forum. HRWager is one of the proud sponsors of this sports forum discussion site. Here like minded handicappers discuss and debate the ins and outs of their favorite fans sports. With a wild and defining end of the night out west, we look at TGF to see what we can all learn from Week Four of the college football season.
College Football : Bounce Back Big Ten
Right off the bat, the discussion went to the defending national champions. Even with declaring a starter, the Ohio State Buckeyes receive too much credit from the line makers against second tier teams. Defense of their perfect record is enough to get them to the playoffs this year. Style points are in short supply as they lose ATS and have not covered since week one. Staying in the Big Ten, people are downgrading their 31-0 win against BYU. The Cougars were at the end of their rope while the Wolverines almost had two byes with the cupcakes they hosted. A perfect storm gives you that odd isolated point away from the usual bell curve results for that game.
Utah Bestowed as the Favorite
Two teams that really impressed late into the night were Utah and UCLA. Utah crippled the Oregon program by taking them to the woodshed, 62-20. The Bruins ripped Rich Rod and Arizona asunder with a 56-30 win. Out of the two, the Utes are judged to be stronger by virtue of their stellar defense. Cappers are still not convinced of how Bruin QB Josh Rosen will do against a quality defense. In a matter of a few hours, the landscape of this Power Five conference has transformed.
Meanwhile, there was a separate thread on TCU’s miracle win against Texas Tech. It seems the Horned Frogs received the break their program did not receive last year. Vast concerns have to be in the minds of many in regards to the TCU defense. As it stands right now, Baylor would more than likely be favored to win their game later in the season. For this and all the other pertinent developments in the college game, visit The Gambling Forum today. Good fortune with your NFL action this Sunday and we will check in tomorrow here at HRWager.
