College Football Week 4: Latest Odds, Trends

A monster college football slate awaits us tomorrow, as eight of the top-10 teams in the country are in action this weekend. 

William Hill has odds up for 27 Week 4 college football games, including seven SEC matchups as the conference kicks off its season. 

LSU begins the 2020-21 campaign with the No. 6 ranking after taking home the national title last season. The Tigers will host Mississippi State at 3:30 p.m. ET/12:30 p.m. PT tomorrow afternoon, and are 16.5-point favorites at William Hill. 

Yet, despite LSU’s championship pedigree, many William Hill bettors are siding with the visitor here.

Mississippi State has captured 64% of the total dollars wagered among all spread bets for this game, while LSU has brought in 51% of the total number of tickets. 

Mississippi State is not the only underdog generating attention from William Hill bettors. Two unranked underdogs are attracting the majority of the total number of tickets and total dollars wagered against a top-25 foe: West Virginia (+6.5) at No. 15 Oklahoma State and NC State (+7) at No. 20 Virginia Tech. 

In fact, West Virginia has been one of the more popular spread bets among any Week 4 contest involving a top-25 team. The Mountaineers are getting 92% of the total dollars wagered vs. Oklahoma State, with only No. 2 Alabama (-28) at 97% vs. Missouri and No. 8 Texas (-17.5) at 95% vs. Texas Tech surpassing that mark in that category. Additionally, West Virginia has reeled in 70% of the total number of tickets. 

Additionally, two road underdogs in ranked matchups have also caught the attention of William Hill bettors. No. 24 Louisville is +3 against No. 21 Pitt and No. 22 Army is +13.5 vs. No. 14 Cincinnati. Yet, Louisville is drawing 51% of the total number of tickets and 71% of the total dollars wagered, while Army is securing 75% of the total number of tickets and 78% of the total dollars wagered. 

The biggest Week 4 college football spread bet has come in on Texas, as a Nevada bettor put down $6,000 on Texas -17 (+120) vs. Texas Tech for a total potential payout of $11,000. Two $5,500 wagers were also placed on Duke +5.5 vs. Virginia and No. 5 Florida vs. Ole Miss over 57.5 points in Lane Kiffin’s debut in Oxford. 

Check out William Hill’s latest odds and trends for every Week 4 college football game involving a top-25 team below.
