This article is part of our College Football DFS: Friday Slate series.
Friday's slate of college football games varies a bit on DraftKings and FanDuel, but we'll cover both the core games and the outliers unique to both sites.
Jacksonville State @ FIU (-10.5) O/U: 59.5 (DRAFTKINGS ONLY)
Tulsa @ South Florida (+10.5) O/U: 50
Louisiana @ UAB (+2.5) O/U: 50.5
Illinois @ Wisconsin (-19.5) O/U: 51.5 (FANDUEL ONLY)
The most intriguing matchup involves Louisiana and UAB. The Ragin' Cajuns are picking up the pieces after a heartbreaking loss to Coastal Carolina, which kicked them out of the AP Top 25. I expect them to use a crushing ground game to tame the Blazers, who have been extremely forgiving to opposing running backs. There is no particular team to fade with such a small slate, but you should streamline your lineups at quarterback and wide receiver because there are a couple of guys who are chalk adds in both formats.
NOTE: When analyzing numbers on DraftKings snd FanDuel, be aware that players' stats are, for the most part, incomplete. The stat outlet that's used by several companies (including us) experienced a massive outage last week, which you probably experienced if you played any Week 7 college slates. It's also compromised historical data as well.
