College Football – Top 25 Odds and Matchups Week 4 2019

The top-nine teams in the recent AP top-25 poll all stayed in their lane after wins last week. That’s about to change in Week 4 of the 2019 college football season with three matchups between clubs ranked among the 17-best in the country. The marquee game on the slate takes place between the hedges in Athens with No. 3 Georgia hosting No. 7 Notre Dame. Bookmaker.eu has opened lines on all of these games and their previews appear below.

There were changes at the bottom of the rankings with three new members of the top-25. Cal, Arizona State and TCU snuck into the bottom three slots respectively. ASU’s win at Michigan State as a 15.5-point dog knocked the Spartans out of the poll. The Golden Bears replace fellow Pac-12 member USC, which was upset at BYU. We’ve already seen movement on the line for Cal’s game at Ole Miss. The Bears opened as a slight favorite only to see the line jump the fence in favor of the Rebels, who were wagered to -2 on the college football betting lines.

We don’t anticipate much change at the top of the rankings with No.1 Clemson a 41-point home favorite over Charlotte. The Tigers covered the 28-point line in a win over nemesis Syracuse last week and they are 4-0 straight up and 3-1 ATS in their last four when laying at least 40 points at home. Alabama failed to cover the 25.5-point line in its win over South Carolina and is 1-2 ATS this season. The Tide is giving Southern Miss 38.5-points on the early line.

Top 25 Week 4 Matchups

No. 7 Notre Dame at No. 3 Georgia ( -14 ), Saturday, Sept. 21, 8 p.m. ET (CBS)

Without a doubt this is the biggest game on the Week 4 schedule with both teams cruising through their first few games without much difficulty. Georgia is a sexy CFP pick and the Dogs have done everything right so far, outscoring opponents 148-23 over the first three games. The competition hasn’t been stiff, but still. The Irish enter this contest off a 66-14 drubbing of New Mexico and will need Ian Book to play lights out to have any chance. We saw Book struggle in the CFP semis last season against an aggressive and fast Clemson defense. Georgia’s group is as good if not better and they’ve allowed 20 or more points just three times at home over the last three years.

No. 11 Michigan at No. 13 Wisconsin ( -3.5 ), Saturday, Sept. 21, 12 p.m. ET (FOX)

Another game that will shake up the rankings and the Big Ten standings takes place in Madison. Both teams are coming off a bye so they should be rested, and they’ll need to be for this dogfight. The Badgers have been an early surprise with impressive victories over South Florida and Central Michigan by a combined 110-0. That’s right, the Badgers haven’t allowed a point and face a Wolverines offense that struggled to get by Army before the off week. Bucky has overwhelmingly covered the spread in both its games while the Wolverines won by a field goal as a three touchdown fave over the Black Knights, falling to 0-2 ATS.

No. 8 Auburn at No. 17 Texas AM ( -4 ), Saturday, Sept. 21, 3:30 p.m. ET (CBS)

Auburn is the higher ranked team, but having to go on the road for the SEC opener has them as a 4-point dog to AM. That’s just fine with the Tigers, who have yet to lose in College Station since the Aggies joined the SEC. In fact the road team has dominated the series with visitors posting a 5-1-1 ATS ledger in the last seven meetings. Texas AM responded to its loss at Clemson by walloping Lamar, 62-3, last week, covering the 45-point closing line to improve to 3-0 ATS. Auburn also worked out some kinks on the offensive side in its 55-16 win over Kent State churning out 467 yards on the ground with three runners amassing over 100 yards each. Don’t expect that kind of production against a strong AM run defense, however.

No. 10 Utah ( -4.5 ) at USC, Friday, Sept. 20, 9 p.m. ET (FS1)

The Trojans’ visit to the national rankings was short-lived after they were upset by BYU last week. That was a game USC needed with three ranked foes on the docket over the next three games. It looks as though the Trojans are going to live or die with Kedon Slovs, who erupted for 377 yards in a win over Stanford. He wasn’t as strong last week with three interceptions stalling any momentum the offense had. The Utes have shown to be the strongest Pac-12 club so far and they’ve been stellar on both sides of the football. Utah has been a great wager going 12-5 ATS in its last 17 road games, and the pressure is building for Clay Helton.
