Finding value in preseason college football win totals has become more difficult in recent years thanks to Internet access providing more and more information on all FBS teams. However, there are still a few teams each year that are flying under the radar and are undervalued. And in contrast, there are a few teams that are overvalued.

1. Texas Longhorns
OVER 9.5 (+105)
