College Football Upset Picks: Navy over Notre Dame?
We’re into the nitty-gritty of the season in college football betting action, and we’re starting to get a bit of a feeling for who all of these teams really are. Join us for our teams that are on upset alert for Week 10 College Football Picks of the campaign.
UPSET #1: Navy (+435 ML) vs. Notre Dame
A whopping 17-point underdog is Navy, and that’s a huge number to be giving us. Last season, QB Keenan Reynolds and the Middies came really close to pulling off an upset at this number at Notre Dame Stadium. Now, they’re at home in Annapolis, and for once, Irish eyes could be smiling on them for a change. It has been a frustrating year for the Midshipmen, as they have been beaten three times as favorites. However, these experienced quarterbacks like Reynolds tend to have a good time against the Notre Dame defense.
We have seen it in the past, and that’s why this series all of a sudden became a heck of a lot more equitable. All of a sudden, Navy has a chance to change the whole scope of the nation this year, and we think there is at least a one-in-six chance or so that it can shock the world and knock off one of the Top 10 teams in America.

UPSET #2: Florida Gators (+390 ML) vs. Georgia Bulldogs
There are just too many unknown entities in this game to not give the Gators at least a little bit of a chance in this one. RB Todd Gurley, at least for the moment, remains suspended for UGA, while QB Treon Harris will get his first collegiate start in this one. Harris could be a complete bust, and the Gators could be beaten by 40 in the World’s Largest Cocktail Party.
However, if you really think about what Georgia has accomplished this year versus what it hasn’t accomplished, you can imagine a world in which the Gators, who have nothing left to play for at this point but to beat Georgia and Florida State, are able to shock the world and really shake up the SEC East and the National Championship picture.

UPSET #3: West Virginia (+170 ML) vs. TCU
Isn’t it time for TCU to go away? We know that every year, these teams come out of the woodwork to challenge for the National Championship, but the Horned Frogs are a one-man show, and that normally doesn’t cut it. West Virginia has played really tough football this year, and the fact of the matter is that it has just two losses, those coming against Oklahoma and mighty Alabama. Milan Puskar Stadium is going to be rocking on Saturday afternoon for this one, and by the time night falls in Morgantown, QB Clint Trickett will once again be a hero, and the couch-burning will ultimately get started.
We’ve got a tough time seeing how the Horned Frogs are favorites in this game, let alone big enough favorites for us to be getting nearly 3 to 1 on our money on WVU.
