Every week, we'll go over some betting trends that apply to the college football slate. Here's what's on tap for Week 10.

Cal at Stanford

Cal's one of the better teams to play as a road underdog over the last three years. The Golden Bears are on an 8-1 run against the spread when getting points away from home, with four outright wins. Additionally, eight of Cal's nine opponents over that span have gone under their team total.

Trend play: Cal +3, Stanford team total under ~22.5

Ohio at Bowling Green

The MAC has three teams with seven or more losses ATS and two of them will be in action Tuesday when Ohio travels to take on Bowling Green. The Bobcats were expected to run away with the East, but they instead entWeek 13 4-6 overall and 2-8 against the spread. Ohio's been dreadful laying chalk this season, going 0-7 ATS with four outright losses.

Trend play: Bowling Green +21

Michigan at Indiana

Indiana's offense has been able to score on some of the conference's better defenses this season. The Hoosiers put up 31 on the road versus Michigan State, 34 on Northwestern, and 27 on Penn State as visitors. With another Big Ten game this weekend against Michigan, don't be surprised if there are more points, especially early on. Indiana is currently on a 14-2 run to the first-half over against conference foes.

Trend play: 1H over

Akron at Miami (OH)

Your 2019 Akron Zips: 0-10 ATS.

Trend play: Miami (OH) -31

Texas State at Appalachian State

Texas State's been a 'dog in most of its games this season and it's not a role the Bobcats have fared well in. They're 0-7 ATS this season when catching points, and they're getting a ton of them this weekend against the Sun Belt favorite.

Trend play: Appalachian State -30

Central Florida at Tulane

Might Central Florida be a bit overrated? After starting the season 3-0 both straight up and ATS, the Knights are just 1-6 ATS with two outright losses. They're laying just shy of a touchdown on the road against a dangerous Tulane team this weekend.

Trend play: Tulane +6

Louisiana Tech at UAB

Think UAB head coach Bill Clark likes being at home? Since he took over in 2014, the Blazers are on a blistering 15-2-1 run ATS at home and 12-2-1 run ATS at Legion Field as favorites. UAB is the chalk at home Saturday against a Louisiana Tech club that's without quarterback J'Mar Smith, who's finishing up a two-game suspension.

Trend play: UAB -6.5

Colorado State at Wyoming

Colorado State's 4-6 straight up and 6-4 ATS this season, but the Rams have been profitable if you know where to play them. They enter their Week 13 tilt against Wyoming 9-1 ATS on the first-half line in 2019.

Trend play: Colorado State 1H
