The Colorado Buffaloes are visiting the Big Ten Conference, as they will take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers Saturday afternoon for the first of our Top Two Best Bets Today. Colorado comes into this game 0-2, and while this seems like it may be a good matchup between two power-five programs, the Buffaloes are perhaps the worst team of all power-five teams. Minnesota has feasted on a very easy schedule so far, beating New Mexico State 38-0, and then Western Illinois 62-10 in the first two weeks.

Minnesota is a big favorite in this game, as they are favored by 27.5 points right now. The Gophers beat the Buffaloes handily last year in Colorado, and now will face them at home. Minnesota is led by a veteran trio of offensive players in their 6th year of college football. Quarterback Tanner Morgan is one of the winningest QBs in Minnesota history, while running back Mohamed Ibrahim is changing the record books at Minnesota. Lastly, the Gophers have Chris Autman-Bell at wideout as their WR1.

This game should not be close as the Buffaloes are in a rebuilding mode right now, while the Gophers should be favorites to get to the Big Ten Title game in December. We will take the Gophers to win and cover the -27.5 point spread.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: Oregon is 1-1 on the season

  • BYU is ranked 12th in the country
  • BYU is 2-0 this season
  • Oregon is ranked 25th in the country

Our next matchup for our Top Two Best Bets Today will head out to Eugene, Oregon as the Oregon Ducks host the BYU Cougars Saturday Afternoon. BYU comes into this game 2-0 on the season as they have defeated Southern Florida and Baylor in a double-overtime thriller. For Oregon, they are trying to get their season back on schedule after the embarrassing 49-3 loss they suffered at the hands of Georgia the opening week.

Despite BYU being ranked higher than Oregon, the Ducks are actually favored in this game by -3.5 points. Oregon should have the advantage at the skill positions, while BYU should be better on the lines. This game may come down to BYU being able to score points easy enough to keep up with the Oregon Ducks. Oregon got exposed when their offensive and defensive lines weren’t on the same planet as Georgia in week one, but we think they will be up to the challenge against BYU. We will take Oregon to win and cover the -3.5 point spread.
