Here's a closer look at where the money is on BetRivers for this weekend's college football action

LSU at Florida State

Bettors are zeroing in on this highly anticipated showdown between two top-ten teams. LSU vs Florida State is the most bet game of the weekend thus far at BetRivers, with almost 9% of all money wagered trained on this crucial tilt.

Both teams are coming off strong 2022 campaigns that saw each program reach double digits in wins.

These schools faced off in one of the most memorable games of the season last year, with Florida State edging out a thrilling 24-23 win over LSU, a defeat that haunted the Tigers for the rest of the season. Will we be treated to an encore on Sunday?

FSU +2.5 is among the most popular bets on BetRivers at the moment.

Colorado at #17 TCU

All eyes are on Coach Prime as Deion Sanders takes the reigns of the Colorado football program. The Buffaloes come into Saturday's tilt on the heels of a putrid 1-11 season. They will have their work cut out for them right out of the gate against a staunch TCU squad.

The Horned Frogs come into 2023 after a run to the National Title game a year ago. While they were blown out in the big game, 2022 can only be categorized as a massive success for TCU as they strive to build off one of the best seasons in program history.

This game is currently commanding the highest volume of betting tickets, with nearly 11% of all bets on BetRivers placed on Colorado vs TCU.

93% of all moneyline bets are on TCU (-1150). However, a slight majority is on the Colorado (+20.5) spread, with around 53% of all bets backing the Buffaloes.

Middle Tennessee at Alabama

Despite a massive spread bettors are still coming in heavy on Middle Tennessee vs Alabama, a testament to the Crimson Tide's brand recognition.

Alabama (-39.5) is currently the second-most popular spread bet at BetRivers, with nearly 94% of all tickets backing the Tide. Can Alabama lay the smackdown right out of the gate, or are they laying just a few too many points?
