Best College Football Bets for November 7, 2020

| November 4, 2020 9:19 am PDT

Hoping to uncover “college football best bets” for this weekend?

Good, because you landed on a page that’s going to direct you to a three-pack of NCAAF matchups to target on November 7th.

Dedicate Saturday to watching the games, but don’t be shy about firing your bets in now.

South Carolina Gamecocks (+10) -110

After opening as a 7.5-point favorite in Vegas, this number has been bet all the way up to Aggies -10. Texas A&M is 4-1 – their lone loss on the road to Alabama – so I understand the hype around the 7th-ranked team in America.

On the flip side, South Carolina is coming off a bye and defeated 15th-ranked Auburn the last time they played at Williams-Brice Stadium. Jimbo Fisher’s group may have more talent as a whole, but these two programs are more evenly matched than the public eye might think.

  Texas A&M South Carolina
Points Scored/Game 30.8 29.2
Points Allowed/Game 29.4 30.0

The Gamecocks blowout loss last time out in Death Valley has given potential South Carolina backers all sorts of insurance for Saturday’s game. I say take advantage of a spread that has unjustly ballooned.

Illinois Fighting Illini (+7.5) -125

This college football best bet for Saturday has more to do with fading Minnesota than it does with backing Illinois. The Fighting Illini got smacked in Madison before getting dropped at home last week by Purdue, 31-24.

It’s a shame that QBs Brandon Peters and Matt Robinson are both unavailable, but perhaps being forced to play sophomore Coran Taylor will be a blessing in disguise for Lovie Smith.

And back to the Golden Gophers.

Here’s a team that lost to Michigan at home by 25 before blowing a 17-point fourth-quarter lead to a very suspect Maryland squad. As exciting as WR Rashod Batman is, P.J. Fleck doesn’t have a whole lot else to be excited about.

With this line pushed over the key number of 7 at BetNow, I recommend hopping on Illinois’ bandwagon. At least in this spot.

Michigan Wolverines (-3) -109

Something smells fishy about the #23 team laying points on the road at #13. On paper it seems like backing Indiana makes all the sense in the world, but not so fast. Michigan punked Indiana 39-14 in 2019, and the Wolverines beat the Hoosiers by 11 in 2018 – right here in Bloomington.

Indiana is 2-0 after big wins over Penn State and Rutgers, but I’m reluctant to think they’re about to snap a 24-game losing streak to Michigan come Saturday.

The Hoosiers average just 2.3 yards per carry and have struggled to stop the run. The Wolverines clock in at 204 rushing yards/game thanks to supreme dual-threat capabilities from QB Joe Milton.

Frankly, this just isn’t a great spot for Tom Allen’s bunch as Jim Harbaugh’s group should be restless coming off a loss. Expect this to be one of the best college football games to watch on Saturday, but don’t ignore the value steeped into Michigan.

In fact, pegging the Wolverines to win by more than a field goal is one of the best college football bets of the weekend.
