This article is part of our College Football DFS: Night Slate series.
As usual, the night slates for FanDuel and DraftKings refuse to cooperate, and only seven of the 10 games listed are shared. We'll break down the outlier games at the end of the article, and we'll use the seven common games as the focus of the column today.
Oklahoma State (-3.5) vs. Baylor O/U: 47
Texas A&M (-6.5) vs. Mississippi State O/U: 46
UAB (-2.5) vs. Liberty O/U: 49.5
Penn State (-12.5) vs. Indiana O/U: 53.5
Clemson (-14.5) vs. Boston College O/U: 46.5
Michigan State (-10.5) vs. Western Kentucky O/U: 65
Nebraska (-11) vs. Northwestern O/U: 51.5
Louisiana-Lafayette (-12) @ South Alabama O/U: 53 (FANDUEL ONLY)
LSU (-3) vs. Auburn O/U: 57 (FANDUEL ONLY)
Oregon State (-1.5) vs. Washington O/U: 57 (FANDUEL ONLY)
Iowa State (-34) vs. Kansas O/U: 57 (DRAFTKINGS ONLY)
Unlike the earlier games, the game totals for this slate all lie within 11 points of each other (except for the MSU/WKU game), so there isn't much of a differential from a fantasy perspective. Aside from ISU/KU on the FanDuel end, most of the point spreads are relatively reasonable as well. The shootout potential of LIB/UAB and BAY/OSU interest me the most, while BC/CLEM and MSST/TA&M are two games I will largely avoid.
Malik Willis, Liberty (DK $9,000, FD $11,000) is the headliner here, but I want to avoid making the blatantly obvious choice for you. If you follow college football at all, you know Willis and his skill set, and he's set up well
