At the onset of the 2019 NCAA Football season there was a lot of hype about the Michigan Wolverines being the team to beat in the Big Ten Conference. With the retirement of Ohio State Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer, the theory was that if Michigan doesn’t win now would they ever be able to do so? The media hype machine made head coach Jim Harbaugh’s team a favorite with the College football betting lines. But Michigan has looked sluggish as they transition to a more spread out offense. And a game this Saturday at the Wisconsin Badgers will be their toughest test yet. Let’s take a look at the best of the Top 25 in college football.

College Football Week 4 Top 25 Betting Odds Analysis
#11 Michigan Wolverines at #13 Wisconsin Badgers -3. Saturday, September 21, 2019, Noon ET, FOX
So far this season the Badgers have not permitted a single point on defense. Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor is a bona fide Heisman Trophy candidate running behind the always powerful Badgers offensive line. New starting quarterback Jack Coan has avoided turnovers that plagued the team last year. Once again Michigan and their 79th ranked offense looks like the product of an unjustified hype machine.
#8 Auburn Tigers at #17 Texas A&M Aggies -4, Saturday, September 21, 2019, 3:30 p.m. ET, CBS
Auburn has also had an inconsistent offense as true freshman Bo Nix continues to struggle at developing consistency. Texas A&M has two wins over cupcakes and a loss at Clemson that showed they are not ready for prime time. It hasn’t been pretty but Auburn remains undefeated and looking improved. The Aggies seem like the more complete and deeper team. This college football game will be their chance to prove that head coach Jimbo Fisher has the program on track in his second year.
#16 Oregon Ducks -10 at Stanford Cardinal, Saturday, September 21, 2019, 7 p.m. ET, ESPN
Recall that one year ago Oregon had the game in hand against Stanford only to blow a 24-7 lead in a 38-31 overtime loss. Stanford has lost two straight games in dominant fashion at USC (20-45) and at UCF (27-45). Worries are mounting that David Shaw has lost his edge as Stanford head coach. Oregon should be undefeated but couldn’t finish off Auburn in a heartbreaking week one loss. This game offers a great shot at atoning themselves. But the question remains if Stanford has the pride to fight back as a home dog.
Oklahoma State Cowboys at #12 Texas Longhorns -7, Saturday, September 21, 2019, 7:30 p.m. ET, ABC
Last year Oklahoma State was a lackluster 7-6 as head coach Mike Gundy admitted he let up and took things for granted. The Pokes will enter this one with a record of 3-0 and a much more polished look. Texas is also improving although their home loss to LSU showed they are not quire ready for prime time. OSU should find holes in the leaky Texas defense.
#7 Notre Dame Fighting Irish at #3 Georgia Bulldogs-13.5, Saturday, September 21, 2019, 8 p.m. ET, CBS
Georgia and Notre Dame make for the ultimate prime time name brand matchup. Georgia is looking like college football’s third super power and the top threat to Clemson and Alabama.

Oklahoma State has a great offense that should prove to be an asset with the College football betting lines at Texas. Look for a possible upset win by the Cowboys at Austin against a Texas team lacking on defense.
