Iowa State vs Baylor
Iowa State
-7 +100 at linepros
Play Type: Premium

Iowa State @ Baylor 3:30 PM ET

Game# 393-394

Play On: Iowa State -7.0 (10*)

Baylor is off to a fast 3-0 start but finds itself a touchdown home underdog against 2-1 Iowa State. We must keep in mind Iowa State’s lone defeat came against #6 Iowa in a game they beat themselves. The Cyclones outgained Iowa in that contest 339-173 but turned the ball over 4 times while not forcing any giveaways. Iowa State rebounded during last week’s 48-3 road win at UNLV. Through its first 3 contests, the Iowa State defense is allowing 13.3 points and 192.7 yards per game, and all those outings went under the total. Baylor’s 3 wins have come against Texas State, Texas Southern, and Kansas. Not exactly a killer schedule.

Any college football road favorite of 3.5-10.0 that is coming off 3 consecutive games going under the total, and they’re allowing 14.0 points or fewer per game, resulted in those favorites going 33-6 ATS (84.6%) since 1992. The average line in those 39 contests was 6.2 and the average victory margin was 16.6 points per game. Bet on Iowa State minus the points for a Top Play wager.

UCLA vs Stanford
+4½ -110 at Mirage
Play Type: Top Premium

UCLA @ Stanford 6:00 PM ET

Game# 363-364

Play On: Stanford +4.5 (10*)

After earning a huge victory over LSY 2 weeks ago, UCLA followed that up with a 40-37 loss to Fresno State as a 10.5-point home favorite. Fresno State exposed the UCLA defense last week by racking up 569 yards of total offense. The UCLA defense has been particularly vulnerable in their last 2 games with Fresno State and LSU amassing a combined 785 yards passing against them.

After losing their season opener 24-7 versus Kansas State, Stanford has won their last 2 over USC and Vanderbilt on the road. On the last Saturday in September, Stanford finally will play its home opener. They will be ready. Bet on Stanford plus the points for a Top Play wager.

Louisville vs Florida State

Play Type: Premium

Louisville @ Florida State 3:30

Game# 267-268

Play On: Florida State +2.0 (5*)

Florida State is 0-3 for the first time since 1976, and that includes a home loss 2 weeks ago to Jacksonville State who plays at the FCS level. The Seminoles were plagued by an alarmingly high 10 turnovers during those 3 defeats and 6 of those came in last week’s 35-14 loss at Wake Forest. Yet, they find themselves as just a 2.0-point underdog versus a Louisville team that just upset Central Florida in a nationally televised home game. After losing both home games to start the season and each by a narrow 3-point margin, I look for Florida State to roar back with a vengeance against a Louisville team that may potentially be overconfident and not mentally sharp. Bet on Florida State plus the small number.

Colorado @ Arizona State 10:30 PM ET

Game# 361-362

Play On: Arizona State -14.0 (5*)

#19 Arizona is coming off a 27-17 upset loss at #15 BYU (3-0). So, the Sun Devils figure to be in a sour mood against a Colorado team which has looked inept offensively to start the season. The Buffaloes are 1-2 with their only win coming versus Northern Colorado. In their only 2 games against FBS opponents they lost 10-7 to Texas A&M and 30-0 at home versus Minnesota. Additionally, they only had 260 yards of total offense versus Texas A&M and an abysmal 63 yards against Minnesota. By the way, through their first 3 games, the Sun Devils defense is allowing just 17.0 points and 246.7 yards per game. The Sun Devils offense has topped the 400 yards of total offense barrier in all 3 games. Bet on Arizona State minus the points for a 5* wager.

West Virginia vs Oklahoma
-17 -110 at Mirage
Play Type: Premium

West Virginia @ Oklahoma 7:30 PM ET

Game# 377-378

Play On: Oklahoma -17.0 (5*)

Since the start of last season, West Virginia has gone a perfect 7-0 at home and that includes last week’s win over then #15 Virginia Tech. However, during that identical time span, they went 0-5 on the road and that includes a season opening 30-24 loss at Maryland.

The critics have been harsh on #4 Oklahoma despite their 3-0 record. The basis behind those negative remarks revolves around the Sooners only 2 games played against FBS opponents. They narrowly escaped in their season opener at home with 40-35 win over Tulane in a game they closed as a 31.0-point favorite. Then last week they entertained Nebraska (1-2) and barely got by with a 23-16 win as a 22.5-point favorite. Nonetheless, since 2014, Oklahoma is a perfect 6-0 SU&ATS versus West Virginia with an average victory margin of 21.5 points per game. Oklahoma is also +2 in the turnover department while West Virginia is a dismal -6 throughout their first 2 games. Bet on Oklahoma minus the points.

Packers vs 49ers
-3 -111 at pinnacle
Play Type: Premium

Packers @ 49ers 8:20 PM ET

Game# 495-496

Play On: San Francisco -3.0 (5*)

I am sure the Packers will be a public play since they were able to view them walloping Detroit 35-17 on the Monday night televised game. However, we must keep in mind, that’s a pitiful Detroit team which has allowed an average of 38 points per game thus far. With that said, despite the Packers putting up 35 points last week they only were able to amass 323 yards of total offense. We mustn’t forget, this is also a Packers team that lost their season opener 38-3 to New Orleans and only was able to muster 322 yards of total offense.

San Francisco is coming of road wins over Detroit and Philadelphia in their first 2 games. The 49ers will also be out to revenge a 34-17 home loss to Green Bay last season in a game they entered ravaged by injuries. I look for the 49ers be mentally and physically sharp in their home opener against what I deem to be an overrated team. Bet the 49ers minus the points.

Seattle @ Minnesota 4:25 PM ET

Game# 493-494

Play On: Minnesota +2.0 (5*)

Talk about a tough luck team, Minnesota has opened the season with a pair of road losses that came by a combined 4 points. Even worse the fact they lost both games via opponent’s winning field goals in the last play of each of those contests. Now they’ll be facing a Seattle team that blew a 14-point 2nd half lead in their home opener last week in a 33-30 loss to Tennessee. Okay so here’s the caveat if you were contemplating Seattle. Since Mike Zimmer took over as head coach in Minnesota in 2014, the Vikings have gone 27-9 (.750) straight up in their last 36 non-division home games and that includes 26-11 (70.3%) ATS. Furthermore, under Zimmer, Minnesota has gone 7-1 SU and 8-0 ATS following 2 straight losses when facing a non-division opponent and their previous contest was versus a non-division opponent. Bet Minnesota plus the small number.

Saints vs Patriots
+3 -120 at linepros
Play Type: Premium

Saints @ Patriots 1:00 ET

Game# 477-478

Play On: New Orleans +3.0 (5*)

The Patriots are coming off a 25-6 road win over an atrocious Jets team. They were beneficiaries of 4 interceptions thrown by rookie quarterback Zack Wilson which came on his first 10 attempts of the day. The New Orleans defense has been great against the run thus far while allowing only 66 rushing yards per contest and a mere 2.6 yards per attempt. The Patriots rookie quarterback Matt Jones is going to have to make some big plays in the passing game because the New Orleans defense is likely to stymie any attempt at running the ball effectively on a consistent basis. I love our chances if that scenario plays out like I believe it will.

New Orleans is coming off an embarrassing 26-7 loss at Carolina last week. However, that was a very unsettling situation for the Saints who were without 8 assistant coaches due to COVID protocols. I look for them to resemble the team we saw in their opening week 38-3 thrashing of the Green Bay Packers. Besides, it’s never a bad idea to bet on the New Orleans Saints following a loss since Sean Payton became their head coach. Since 2008, and all with their current head coach, New Orleans is 47-25 SU&ATS (65.2%) following a loss. Furthermore, if those contests were played before Game 11 of the season, and the Saints allowed 25 points or more in those previous losses, they improved to 15-2 ATS (88.2%) and 13-4 during that identical timeframe. Bet the Saints plus the small number.

Dolphins vs Raiders
+4 -110 at William Hill
Play Type: Top Premium

Dolphins @ Raiders 4:05 PM ET

Game# 487-488

Play On: Dolphins +4.0 (10*)

Derek Carr is off to an extremely hot start to the season. Nevertheless, he’ll be facing what is arguable the best cornerback tandem in the NFL which is Miami’s Byron Jones and Xavien Howard. The Raiders are off to a 2-0 start. You may be surprised to know, this is a franchise that’s won 2 straight just 20 times since 2004, and they went a terrible 6-14 SU and 5-15 ATS in their following game. After winning their first 2 games as an underdog versus Baltimore and Pittsburgh, the Raiders assume the role of a chalk for a first time this season. Since the start of the 2017-2018 season, the Raiders are 0-4-1 ATS as a favorite of 3.5 or less when facing an opponent coming off a loss.

Miami is coming last Sunday’s embarrassing 35-0 home loss to Buffalo. However, it must be noted that since 2001, away teams with a point-spread of +4.5 to -4.5 who are coming off a home shutout loss have gone 8-0 ATS. Additionally, since the start of last season, Miami is 6-3 SU on the road and that includes 3-0 SU&ATS as an underdog of 6.0 or less. As a matter of fact, 1 of those wins came last season at Las Vegas 26-25 as 2.5-point underdog. Yes the Dolphins will be without Tua at quarterback, but at this stage of his young career there’s not a huge drop off going to veteran Jacoby Brissett who has starting experience with both Indianapolis and New England. Bet on the Dolphins plus the points for a Top Play wager.


Ross Benjamin has made his reputation in the sports handicapping industry by being one of the sharpest prognosticators over the last 17 years. Included in professional sports handicapper Ron Raymond’s 2008 published book “50 Greatest Sports Betting Secrets” he probably says it best. “One of the most underrated and sharpest sports handicappers I know is Ross Benjamin”.

Ross’ sports betting advice is simple yet prophetic.  “if you want to be a successful sports handicapper then start by thinking like a bookmaker”.

Ross has been publicly in the sports betting industry full time since early 2003 and has never looked back. Any Google search on Ross Benjamin Sports reaffirms his commitment to winning, professionalism, honesty, and integrity.

Ross is currently a featured sports betting writer and video analyst for OSGA. He has been in that role since 2017. Additionally, Ross is a former writer/video analyst for Sportsbook Review from 2011 to 2017

However, there’s nothing Ross enjoys more than picking winners in the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, NCAA Football, and NCAA Basketball. He’s met that challenge and passed the test for the last 18 years running.

Ross is the past winner of the “Playbook Invitational Football Wise Guy Contest” while also finishing in the Top 5 on 3 other separate occasions.
