Handicapping AP Top 25: NCAA Football Top 10 – Week 4 Betting Preview

Week 4 AP Top 25

The Week 4 AP Top 25 college football poll was released on Sunday. Despite the majority of the nation’s top teams enjoying bye weeks or cupcake matchups, there was still some re-shuffling throughout the top 25 teams.

As always stay tuned to Cappers Picks blog all NCAA Football betting season long. Tons of free picks and analysis posted daily.

College Football Betting

The top five remained unchanged, but Georgia’s loss at South Carolina knocked the Bulldogs out of the top 10 and down to number 13. Texas A&M and Baylor each moved up a spot to No. 6 and No. 7 respectively.

USC’s loss to Boston College also dealt a blow to the Trojans, who fall eight spots to No. 17. Notre Dame and Ole Miss climbed into the top 10 and No. 9 and No. 10 respectively.

1. Florida State Seminoles (2-0, previous: 1)

An off week gives way to one of the toughest games on the Seminoles’ schedule. Florida State really spoiled Clemson’s season a year ago when they went into Death Valley and upset the Tigers in decisive fashion. Clemson is certainly in a rebuilding mode at the moment, but Dabo Swinney’s boys will surely come out punching.

2. Oregon Ducks (3-0, previous: 2)

Oregon could have been a little more decisive against Wyoming a week ago, but a letdown was to be expected after their big win over Michigan State. Another soft matchup on tap against Washington State this weekend, even if it is on the road.

3. Alabama Crimson Tide (3-0, previous: 3)

Alabama let Southern Miss hang around for a little while before pulling away, though bettors won’t be happy that they weren’t able to cover the number. They have a tough one on their hands on Sunday with an underrated Florida squad making the trip out to Tuscaloosa as 16-point underdogs.

4. Oklahoma Sooners (3-0, previous: 3)

Oklahoma made short work of Tennessee a week ago, again showing that they are a major player in the quest for a spot in the inaugural College Football Playoff. On tap this weekend is a trip to West Virginia to take on the Mountaineers as nine-point favorites.

5. Auburn Tigers (2-0, previous: 5)

Gus Malzahn’s Auburn squad enjoyed a week off in advance of Thursday night’s prime time matchup against Kansas State in Manhattan. Kansas State is the 20th-ranked team in the nation at the moment, and even though that’s probably generous, they’re still a tough out on their home field.

6. Texas A&M Aggies (3-0, previous: 7)

The Aggies didn’t run away with their game against Rice the way they probably could have. They’ll get another opportunity to build up a big margin on Saturday when they visit SMU.


7. Baylor Bears (3-0, previous: 8)

Baylor built up a nice margin in their win over Buffalo in prime time, showing that they can score points at will in the right circumstances. They’re off this week, and star quarterback Bryce Petty will use that time to heal his various bumps and bruises.

8. LSU Tigers (3-0, previous: 10)

LSU didn’t have any trouble with UL-Monroe a week ago, picking up their second shutout victory in as many weeks. They’ll face much stiffer competition on Saturday when they host an improving Mississippi State squad. They get the game in Baton Rouge, though, and that’s a big part of why they’re installed as 10-point favorites.

9. Notre Dame Fighting Irish (3-0, previous: 11)

Notre Dame has shown a lot of flaws in going 3-0, but quarterback Everett Golson certainly isn’t one of them.

He’s looked like a legitimate Heisman candidate after returning to the lineup following a missed 2013 campaign. The team returns next week when they take on Syracuse.

10. Ole Miss Rebels (3-0, previous: 14)

Oddsmakers just can’t find a number big enough that Ole Miss can’t cover. The Rebels get a well-deserved week off after a very impressive start to the season on both sides of the ball. They’ll return on Sept. 27 to host Memphis.
