College Football Week 8 Odds & Spreads
With the top teams all in action this weekend, the story of this slate how heavily favored each of them is. Leading the way is No. 1 Alabama who is favored by 34.5 at home against Tennessee.
Right behind the Crimson Tide is the No. 5 Oklahoma Sooners favored by 33.5 at home against West Virginia and No. 6 Wisconsin favored by 31 on the road at Illinois.
Rounding out the top teams in the county, No. 4 Ohio State is favored by 28 at Northwestern, No. 3 Clemson is favored by 24 at Louisville, and No. 2 LSU is favored by 18.5 at Mississippi.
The shortest spread of Week 8 comes courtesy of the Pac-12. In a 3:30 EST start, No. 12 Oregon is a 2.5-point favorite on the road against No. 25 Washington.
A game with a spread that falls in between the extremes but is still worth noting is No. 16 Michigan visiting No. 7 Penn State on Saturday night at 7:30 EST. In his career, Jim Harbaugh is 1-9 against AP top-10 teams. If Michigan is going to have any chance of making a post season run, it needs to start with a win in Happy Valley.
This game also happens to have the lowest total of the week at 45.5, and figures to be a defensive battle for one of the top spots in the Big 10 East.
If you are looking for some of the higher over/unders of Week 8, look no further than Baylor-Oklahoma State. With a total of 66, they lead the board and considering that the spread is only 3.5 (with Oklahoma State favored), this could be a must-watch game.
