SportPundit College Football Prediction Results for Week 8 of the 2019 NCAA Division I FBS Season

SportPundit College Football Prediction Results for Week 8 of the 2019 NCAA Division I FBS Season


We finished Week 8 of the 2019 FBS college football season as follows:
40-22 in calling the winner
35-27 against the spread, and
30-31-1 against the over/under.

 
Our cumulative FBS prognostication record for 2019 after Week 8 is:
386-115 in calling the winner
251-238-12 against the spread
246-247-7 against the over/under ("total").


If possible, we compete against the quoted opening odds ("the line", "the spread") as available online (e.g. Vegas Insider, OddsShark, Sportsline, CFPT), and which can vary, so we have no fixed system of which portals we use. We do our predictions for fun and we are not affiliated with any service or institution.

Caveat Emptor! Please do not use our predictions for wagering. We disclaim any and all liability for anyone's use of our materials and prognostications, nor do we make any warranties as to accuracy. Our prognostication hobby helps us to keep track of news and sports all over America. We are not in this for the money. May the best team win.

Our abbreviation "ypp" in our prognostications means "yards per play" and not "yards per point" as at Phil Steele --- hey, we have his preview magazine -- this is no ad for Phil Steele, just a fact.

Our predictions look to yards per play stats (cfbstats.com) on both offense and defense, schedule difficulty (Massey Ratings) with an eye thrown at the unbiased Colley Matrix, and home field advantage (calculated either via Kambour (Kambour HFA), or as a standard of 3 points, it just depends). We also cast a glance at the College Football Prediction Tracker ("CFPT"). Our own FBS rankings after Week 7 of play are the basis for our prognostications.
