SYRACUSE, N.Y. – The Friday slate of games for the seventh week of the college football season has a handful of intriguing betting lines that can be exploited by sports bettors.
Syracuse Orange Vs. Clemson Tigers: First Quarter Total
The Clemson Tigers offense has struggled mightily to this point in the season. They’re averaging the fewest yards and points per game in the ACC and have especially struggled in the first quarter.
Clemson Tigers First Quarter Total
- OVER 6.5 -180
- UNDER 6.5 +135
The Syracuse Orange defense is allowing just 1.2 first-quarter points per game this season against FBS opponents and projects this to be a tough matchup for the Tigers, who are scoring 5.2 points per first quarter this season. Online sportsbooks may be undervaluing the country’s No. 2 first-quarter scoring defense in this tilt.
Plus, Clemson may not have many possessions as Syracuse is a run-heavy team that averages 242.8 rushing yards per game. If they can put together a drive or two that chews up the clock, Clemson’s chances of hitting this mark get even lower.
The game begins on Friday at 7:00 p.m. EST on ESPN.
San Diego State Vs. San Jose State: First Quarter Spread
The No. 24 ranked San Diego State Aztecs are set to play the San Jose State Spartans on Friday night. San Diego State is favored by 10.0 points in the game but the first quarter spread is listed at just 0.5 points on college football betting sites.
San Diego State Vs. San Jose State 1Q Spread Odds
- San Diego State Aztecs -0.5 -145
- San Jose State +0.5 +110
San Diego State is scoring 7.8 points per first quarter compared to San Jose State’s 2.0 points per first quarter. The Spartans also allow 8.0 points per first quarter in comparison to the Aztecs’ 4.2 first-quarter points allowed average.
First Quarter Point Totals
- San Diego State Aztecs 6.5 Over -120, Under -110
- San Jose State Spartans 0.5 Over EVEN, Under -130
The odds themselves indicate this result will hit and while the -145 line is a little juicy, it’s worth it. Those interested in watching should tune into CBS Sports Network at 10:30 p.m. EST.
California Golden Bears Vs. Oregon Ducks: First Half Team Total
The Oregon Ducks as a team are solid, but their defense has had some questions, especially in the opening half. The team is set to be without Kayvon Thibodeaux in the first half, which should help the California Golden Bears hit their first-half team total.
California Golden Bears First Half Total
- OVER 9.5 -115
- UNDER 9.5 -115
Cal is averaging 12.2 points per first half this season while the Ducks are allowing 11.8 points per game in the first half. Oregon has allowed at least 10 points in the first half in three of their four games against FBS teams while California has scored at least 10 points in all but one game on the season.
ESPN will air the game starting at 10:30 p.m. EST.
