The biggest Saturday of college football is tomorrow. The SEC is back! We’ve got an actual rivalry game in FSU-Miami! And hopefully no more games won’t get canceled due to Covid-19!

We’ll make some picks based on what we’ve seen so far below, but below are the odds and bet splits at DraftKings Sportsbook so far for College Football Week 4. We’ve got a look at the point spread, point total, and moneyline wagering so far this week.

Our picks

UTSA -6.5 over MTSU

First-year Roadrunner head coach Jeff Traylor has UTSA in a good spot heading into Saturday’s home matchup with Middle Tennessee State. UTSA is 2-0 and are being carried by the combo of 2019 Conference-USA Freshman of the Year Sincere McCormick and Frank Harris at running back, who have combined for 456 yards and six touchdowns on the ground.

Meanwhile, the Rick Stockstill era at MTSU may be winding down as the Blue Raiders have been thoroughly dominated in both of their outings this season.

Expect the Roadrunners to roll in the Alamodome here.

Kentucky +8 vs. Auburn

The No. 8 Auburn Tigers kicks off their season by welcoming the No. 23 Kentucky Wildcats to the Plains and Gus Malzahn is relying on sophomore quarterback Bo Nix to take a leap in year two.

Nix looked, well, like a freshman QB throughout the 2019 season by showing flashes of potential as well as limitations with accuracy. What could hamper him and the Auburn offense in the early parts of this bizarre season is the Tigers breaking in four brand new starters up front.

Meanwhile, Mark Stoops has hit about as good of a groove as anyone can in Lexington, managing to put together an 8-5 record last season in spite of several key injuries to starter. Per ESPN’s Bill Connelly, the Wildcats return 78% of their defensive production from last season, making for a tight season-opener with the Tigers.

Mississippi State +16.5 vs. LSU

The defending national champion LSU Tigers are taking the field at Tiger Stadium for the first time this fall but with so many departures due to the NFL draft and Covid opt-outs, Ed Orgeron’s 2020 squad will look drastically different from the 2019 squad that won it all.

Meanwhile, a new regime has set up shop in Starkville with Mike Leach taking over as the head man of the Maroon and White and while it’s going to take a few years to fully integrate the air raid into the DNA of the program, it helps to have 1300+ yard rusher and Confederate flag destroyer Kylin Hill in your arsenal to start off.

LSU’s young talent should be able to walk out with the ‘W’ here but expect State to keep it close.
