College football week 10 is upon us. We take a look at the top three bets to make as we’re over halfway through the football season.

FSU football gave Clemson a run for their money, but ultimately came up short for the second year in a row.

Recap The Abomination That Was Last Week

-We took Miami -2.5 against Notre Dame. This bet lost, but I don’t think it was a bad bet. Miami got down 20-0 before roaring back to take a 27-20 lead with nine minutes left in the game. Miami promptly gave up a touchdown, but got the ball with five minutes to go in the game and lost four yards before having to punt. Notre Dame went down and kicked a field goal. Loss

-Took Virginia Tech -4 against Pittsburgh. Another bet that lost, but was a solid bet. Virginia Tech was up 10 points with four minutes to go in the game and allowed Pittsburgh to drive 90 yards for a touchdown to blow the cover by one point. Loss.

-We took West Virginia -3.5 against Oklahoma State. I’ll admit this was a sucker bet. I should have known this bet was too good to be true. Oklahoma State won this game outright 37-20. Loss.

We’re 16-20-3 on the season.  Let’s get into our top three bets and get some positive momentum going for us.

Pittsburgh +3.0 vs. Miami

Time: 12:30 p.m.

How to watch: ACC Network

Where: Hard Rock Stadium, Miami, FL

Both teams are coming off three-point loses in their last outing. Miami lost to Notre Dame and Pittsburgh lost to Virginia Tech in a high scoring affair.

Pittsburgh offense put up a lot of points against a better defense in Virginia Tech last week. Miami has a lot of youth on defense and they are probably hitting a wall right now. Miami has been struggling on offense since losing to FSU. I’ll take Pittsburgh and the points.

Georgia Tech +10.5 vs. UNC

Time: 12:30 p.m.

How to watch: ACC Network

Where: Kenan Stadium, Chapel Hill, NC

UNC is coming off a bye week which concerns me a bit, but that will not help their run defense that much. GT just beat a Duke team that usually defends the triple option pretty well.

I like the Georgia Tech offense to be able to keep the explosive UNC offense on the sidelines for much of the game and we’re getting double-digit points.

NC State +3(First Half) vs. FSU

Time: 7:00 p.m.

How to watch: ESPNU

Where: Carter-Finley Stadium, Raleigh, NC

If it ain’t broke don’t fix it they say. FSU is coming off the loss to Clemson where they played their best game and still lost. They’re playing a NC State team that’s lost three straight and FSU always struggles it seems in Raleigh.

FSU has only led twice ALL season at halftime. The Wolfpack and their crowd will try to fuel them early.

Good luck with your wagers and enjoy the college football games!
