Even though you can’t use the internet to wager on your favorite Illinois college football teams, we feel for you and have three college football contests we think you would enjoy betting on this Saturday.

Tennessee vs Alabama 3:30 p.m. ET

This should be a fantastic contest when No. 17 Tennessee meets No. 11 Alabama. Tennessee has won three straight, while Alabama is looking to extend a five-game winning streak.

The Under 48.5 is the best bet for this game. Two top-20 scoring defenses are featured in this contest, and the offenses have been inconsistent for most of the year. Tennessee ranks seventh in tackles for a loss, while Alabama ranks 14th in that category.

Tennessee has hit the Game Total Under in four of its last five away games (+2.90 Units / 53% ROI) and has a different offense away from Knoxville. Play the Under 48.5 (-110) at DraftKings Sportsbook Illinois.

Utah State vs. San Jose State 7:00 p.m. ET

If you like college football games with plenty of scoring and not much defense, then tune in to Saturday night’s Utah State at San Jose State Mountain West Conference matchup.

The Over 66.5 is the best bet for this matchup. There’s just a handful of FBS defenses that allow more points than these two defensive groups have this season. Utah State is 15th in scoring, while San Jose State averages 31.4 points per game.

Both schools have Over/Under records of 6-1 to the Over, and this one has all the makings for a high-scoring affair. Play the Over 66.5 (-109) at BetRivers Sportsbook Illinois

Utah vs. USC 7:00 p.m. ET

No. 14 Utah heads to Los Angeles for a matchup with the No. 17 USC Trojans for what will likely be the last time they meet each other as Pac-12 Conference rivals.

The Under 54.5 (-112) is the best bet for this contest. Utah has one of the best defenses in the college game and hasn’t allowed more than 21+ in any game this season. USC relies too heavily on its offense, and the Utah defense will slow them down considerably.

The Utah offense has been sketchy and scores a 111th-best 21.8 points per game, and even though the Trojans’ defense has been questionable, they’ll get enough stops and keep this one Under the total. Play the Under 54.5 (-112) at BetRivers Sportsbook.
