College Football DFS: Weekday Slates: Thursday/Friday Week 7

This article is part of our College Football DFS: Weekday Slate series.

We've got five games of action on two different slates for Thursday and Friday, so let's jump right in with an introduction of the available games via the Vegas oddsmakers.


North Carolina State (-5) vs. Syracuse    O/U: 56

UL-Monroe (-3.5) at Texas State O/U: 61.5


Colorado State (-3.5) at New Mexico  O/U: 56.5

Miami (-2.5) vs. Virginia  O/U: 43.5

Oregon (-21) vs. Colorado  O/U: 58.5

(odds provided by FanDuel Sportsbook and are subject to change)

For the Thursday slate, I see no particular need to fade either game, but I'm fairly sure that the lower ownership will lie in the UL-Monroe-Texas State matchup, based purely on overall knowledge about the teams involved. It does have the highest O/U over both days, so I'm inclined to do a little more homework about both teams and look at their recent trends.

On the Friday end, Vegas is telling us to stay away from the UVA/MIA matchup with the low O/U, and a glance at their recent scoring, I'm inclined to believe them.  Conversely, I'm not at all convinced by the O/U in the perceived Oregon blowout. I think Steven Montez can do enough to keep this game interesting, resulting in more points on both sides of the ball.

For the purposes of this article, I'll identify my two favorite picks for each slate, at quarterback, running back and wide receiver. In the flex section, I'll focus on sleepers or budget options for that slate.
