A pair of fantastic NCAA football betting battles are going to be on tap this week, as there are some questionable teams looking to get a rare victory going against underachieving mediocre squads. Check out our Thursday NCAA football free picks!

Year To Date Record: 40-38 ATS
Upset Record: 9-18 -$150

Week 8 College Football Matchup: UCF Knights @ UAB Blazers
Date: Thursday, October 20th, 8:00 ET
Location: Legion Field, Birmingham, AL
College Football Lines: UCF -16
Over/Under 45.5
Week 8 College Football TV Schedule: CBS College Sports

UCF is only a 3-3 team this year, but it has an offense that UAB isn’t going to be able to stop in this one. The Knights are averaging 184.0 rushing yards per game against a defense that is allowing over 220 yards per game on the ground. Remember that UCF’s defense ranks third nationally at 221.3 yards per game. Sure, this offense has only put up 17 points or fewer in four straight games, but this is a totally different situation against a team that it has dominated. We fully expect to see the Knights rolling in a big, big way on Thursday night.

Week 8 NCAA Football Pick: UCF -16

Week 8 College Football Matchup: UCLA Bruins @ Arizona Wildcats
Date: Thursday, October 20th, 9:00 ET
Location: Arizona Stadium, Tucson, AZ
College Football Lines: Arizona -4
Over/Under 62
Week 8 College Football TV Schedule: ESPN

Though these teams virtually have the exact same records as the teams in the UCF/UAB game, the situation is totally, totally different. UCLA is playing right about at its means at 3-3, and it is one of the mediocre at best teams in the Pac-12. Arizona has a record that suggests that it is one of the bottom feeders in the conference, but that too, we know isn’t really the case. The Wildcats have already played Oklahoma State, USC, Oregon, and Stanford. Yikes. There isn’t a team in America that would have survived that gauntlet of games in a span of a month. This is the first game for the Cats without dismissed Head Coach Mike Stoops, and we tend to think that they are going to come out fighting this week for their new boss. This offense is going to be in for a big, big game against a UCLA team that just isn’t up to snuff.

Week 8 NCAA Football Pick: Arizona -4
