Last Updated: Oct 31, 2023

There are only seven unbeaten teams remaining in the AP Top 25 after Oklahoma lost to Kansas in Week 9.

Ahead of the upcoming weekend, we have four games scheduled between top-25 teams, including an SEC matchup pitting LSU against Alabama.

With another slate of games set to be played to make the playoff picture clearer, here are our best college football bets for Week 10.

All NCAAF betting odds used for these CFB Week 10 predictions are current as of Tuesday, Oct. 31, and courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Louisiana Tech vs Liberty Prediction: Liberty -17 (-110)

Earlier this season, Liberty was a team we targeted often to cover the spread, and the Flames consistently came through for us.

After having midweek games recently, they will return to playing on Saturday at home against Louisiana Tech.

Liberty is 8-0 entering Week 10 and has covered the spread in six of its games thus far. Conversely, Louisiana Tech is 3-6 ATS this season and has lost – and failed to cover the spread – in three straight contests.

As the Flames look to remain unbeaten on the season, they should defeat the Bulldogs with ease at home.

Army vs Air Force Prediction: Under 33 (-110)

We have a couple of expected low-scoring matchups in Week 10, highlighted by a service academy showdown between Army and No. 17 Air Force.

While Air Force is averaging 33.6 points per game (tied for 29th most in the nation), these games tend to be defensive battles since both teams understand how to slow down the opposing offense.

In the last 10 meetings between Army and Air Force, the Under has been a winner nine times. Last season’s matchup between these teams ended with the Falcons securing a 13-7 victory on the road.

There shouldn’t be much scoring again in Saturday’s clash, as Army and Air Force want to run the ball and control the time of possession.

Washington vs USC Prediction: Washington -3.5 (-108)

One of the most anticipated matchups this upcoming weekend is the Pac-12 showdown between No. 5 Washington and No. 24 USC.

The Huskies escaped with a 42-33 win over Stanford in Week 9 to improve to 8-0 on the season. Meanwhile, the Trojans narrowly beat California 50-49 to snap a two-game losing streak. Washington has failed to cover the spread in four straight games, and USC is 0-6 ATS in its last six contests.

It should be a fun battle between quarterbacks Michael Penix Jr. and Caleb Williams, with both teams averaging at least 40 points per game on the offensive side of the ball. That said, the Trojans have one of the worst defenses in the country, surrendering 32.56 points per game.

After a fast start to the season, USC has slowed down in recent weeks and looks a bit overrated, making Washington likely to win by a decent number of points on Saturday.
