The VSiN college football experts have been hard at work this summer, writing up team previews and predictions for all 131 FBS teams, including their favorite individual season win total and College Football Playoff bets.

Here are the best bets for season win totals (with DraftKings odds):

Matt Youmans

Alabama Over 10.5 (-265)

When betting Over a high win total, a handicapper must have lots of faith in the coach, quarterback and defense. Alabama is as good as it gets in all three areas. Nick Saban is not a coach who plans fun field trips to Disney World. Saban is demanding and knows how to motivate a team that’s a big favorite, and his no-letdown style will be needed because the Crimson Tide could be favored by two touchdowns or more in all 12 games. Bryce Young is arguably the best quarterback in the country, and linebacker Will Anderson is arguably the nation’s best defensive player. The Tide should not have too much trouble sweeping road games against Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, LSU and Mississippi. Most books have posted this total at 11.5, which is probably the right number, so allow for a margin of error and lay this high price on the 10.5 posted at DraftKings. An injury to Young is the only potential problem. If Saban gets upset once, that’s OK, but anything less than an 11-1 record would be a major disappointment for an Alabama team that’s loaded and should run the table.
