With so many teams to choose from, it’s a difficult chore to set steady win totals for each team in college football.

That’s why it’s more advantageous to exploit the college football win totals, rather than the NFL’s.

I’ve scoured the conferences and found my favorite three teams to go over in 2018 win totals.

Missouri Tigers, over/under 6.5

I really like the Tigers. I like them so much, I picked them as a major sleeper in the SEC.

Missouri was awful to start 2017, but caught fire late. With plenty of players returning to this year’s lineup, that momentum can be a driving force in winning some early games, including an early date with Georiga.

Missouri gets Georgia in September and Alabama two weeks later. I don’t believe the Tigers will beat the Crimson Tide, but good teams are more vulnerable early. So that Georgia game could be ripe for an upset.

After playing Alabama, the schedule opens up for the Tigers, so it’s not out of the question that this team can cruise to seven wins. The offense should be one of the better units in the SEC, with an experienced quarterback and offensive line.

The defense has question marks, but with the ability to score, Missouri should be able to muster the over.

TCU Horned Frogs, over/under 7.5

Oddsmakers are missing something. I know we all love Texas and the Longhorns should be better.

But quietly, TCU has gobbled up a ton of talent on the recruiting trail in recent years. And those high-level recruits are going to see the field this year for the Horned Frogs.

Defensively, TCU should once again be one of the better teams in the Big 12. That will help them win a handful of games alone. Offensively, the experts are sleeping on the Horned Frogs’ ability. They’ve been a trusted unit now for a few years and there’s no reason to believe that the system will fail with some new parts.

The talent level is rising for the Horned Frogs, so even if a few pieces are missing from last year, that shouldn’t deter TCU from winning nine to 10 games in 2018.

Stanford Cardinal, over/under 8

We’ll know early if Stanford will cruise over eight wins or if it will be a battle.

Stanford’s first five games feature contests against San Diego State, USC, Oregon and Notre Dame.

If the Cardinals survive that test, you won’t break a sweat with this number. And from what I’ve deducted, this won’t require much perspiration.

Stanford will employ one of the best offenses in the country, with their top-five rushers returning, along with their quarterback and four of five offensive linemen. That’s scary for the opposition.

There are some question marks on defense, but the coaching staff has been a well-trusted unit in the past with defense, so I’ll trust that the defense will make strides during the year.

With such an explosive offense, it’s hard to fathom that Stanford will win less than eight games. There’s no reason to back the under in this situation.
