There are a couple of large spreads for some of those AP Top 25 teams, especially: No. 4 Ohio State (-28) at Northwestern, West Virginia at No. 5 Oklahoma (-33.5), No. 6 Wisconsin (-31) at Illinois and Tennessee in No. 1 Alabama (-34.5).
The greatest line movement among the ranked teams so much is UL Monroe at No. 24 Appalachian State at which the Mountaineers opened at -17 and also have dropped into -14.5. The biggest total movement is in the No. 6 Wisconsin in Illinois game in which the total opened at 52 points also has fallen to 49.5.

Temple vs SMU Game Center
Line History
Temple picked up its second victory over a ranked opponent last week by trimming then-No. Now, and 23 Memphis the Owls search on the road at SMU to get a third. Outside of an ugly loss at Buffalo in Week 3, Temple may well be at the 25 itself. Meanwhile, the Mustangs are coming off their bye week in Week 7 and bring a 6-0 record. Additionally, SMU is 5-1 ATS, only failing to cover its final time out against Tulsa.
This line has transferred into more than a touchdown for SMU today, and that I find a little surprising since -6.5 looked like an suitable line. The Mustangs have a balance on offense and on the floor, whereas the Owls lean longer in their attack with QB Anthony Russo. Defensively, SMU is far not far better compared to Temple and is strong against the run sport, although the Mustangs are in stopping quarterbacks.
Temple has covered with SMU at each of the past 3 meetings, such as winning two of those games , but this can be their first meeting since 2016. That said the previous three competitions between these universities were -12 (Temple, 2016), -13.5 (Temple, 2015) and -14 (SMU, 2013). I expect a bit of a buyback for the Owls and this line closure about -7 for the Mustangs.
Michigan vs Penn State Game Center
Line History
After rapping off then-No the Nittany Lions eye that was undefeated victories over ranked opponents. 17 Iowa a week 17-12. Meanwhile stomped at then-No around the road. 13 Wisconsin at Week 4, Michigan has rattled off three consecutive wins, including a triumph over then-No. 14 Iowa, and it showed some prowess against teams in Illinois and Rutgers.
The Wolverines have experienced the Nittany Lions amount recently, heading 4-1 SU and ATS but that loss came in the competition. Penn State won that match 42-13 also it was the only time the Nittany Lions was preferred in the last seven encounters over Michigan.
Penn State has had a better offense and defense compared to Michigan this year but has had any vulnerabilities in its own secondary, surrendering an average of 205.8 passing yards per game. On the other hand, the Nittany Lions will allow Wolverines QB Shea Patterson attempt to conquer on them as hes got the lowest yards per completion and the lowest pass completion percentage of his career. I could see this lineup continue to move in favour of Penn State.
Boise State vs BYU Game Center
Line History
Boise State proceeds to climb the ranks because it makes its way. Copy Chase Cord filled in admirably although the Broncos faced some adversity because true freshman Hank Bachmeier, their quarterback, left the game. On the other side, BYU is currently coming home when it darkened then-No, looking for its first win. 24 USC 30-27 in overtime.
Even though the Broncos have had the Cougars amount lately, winning five of their last seven meetings they have just covered in 2 of these games. Boise State has been preferred between these teams in each of the previous five contests, with four of those.
BYUs offense was anemic this season, averaging 22.3 points per game, which doesnt bode well this week as Boise State ranks 27th in school football with just 19.5 points allowed per game. Its a little surprising to see this line remain stagnant far and it can stay there weekly, but if it goes, I believe it will move in favor of Boise State.
Oregon vs Washington Game Center
Line History
After dropping in its season opener from then-No. 16 Auburn, Oregon has rattled off five straight wins. Washington continues to be a tough team falling to Stanford and Cal, while still making a victory over then-No. 21 taking care of business and USC.
The Ducks have been a reliable bet against the Huskies, winning eight of the last 10 meetings and covering in seven of those, but theyre 1-2 ATS within the previous three. This past year, Oregon had been a 3.5-point underdog at home to Washington and won 30-27. Today we are watching a 6.5-point swing and the Ducks will be on the street.
Both teams are strong and average the same amount of points each game. However, the Ducks??defense has enabled the third-fewest points per game this year and has been really tough against opposing running backs, allowing only 107.5 rushing yards per game. That may be an issue for Washington as it averages 178.7 rushing yards per game. If youre a Huskies backer, then I believe this line will visit +3.5 because we near kickoff.
