Saturday, Week 13 NCAAF Picks, Odds & Lines - Bet Against Ohio State
Chief Sports Writer
Welcome back for Week 13 NCAA football action for the Saturday games on Thanksgiving weekend! Last week was another successful one, and I'm back to providing you with more expert college football picks to profit from.
I've got three Week 13 college football picks against the spread in games featuring #2 Ohio State at #5 Michigan, #3 Alabama at Auburn & #10 Oklahoma at #7 Oklahoma State
Week 13 College Football Picks Against The Spread
#2 Ohio State at #5 Michigan
|Spread||-7.5 (-110)||+7.5 (-110)|
|Totals||O64.5 (-110)||U64.5 (-110)|
There is absolutely no statistical analysis that backs Michigan in this matchup, considering it has lost each of the last eight matchups against Ohio State. Enough is enough, and the time is now – I like the Wolverines to cover the eight-point spread.
This line was upwards of -10 for Ohio State earlier in the week, but we can some sharp money finally hopping aboard the Blue and Maize. Despite about 80% of bets/money going toward the Buckeyes, their line has dropped from -10 to -7.5 at some sportsbooks. That’s certainly not the type of movement you want to see if you’re planning on backing Ohio State on Saturday.
Week 13 College Football Pick: Michigan (+7.5)
#3 Alabama at Auburn
|Spread||-19.5 (-110)||+19.5 (-110)|
|Totals||O55.5 (-110)||U55.5 (-110)|
Sure, it’s a rivalry game, but the Iron Bowl just doesn’t have the same type of flare in 2021. Auburn comes in as losers of three straight, so I wouldn’t expect Alabama to take it lightly on their in-state rivals when a win is oh-so-necessary.
The Crimson Tide ranks #3 in the latest College Football Playoff standings, and a convincing win is needed to hold suit there until the SEC Championship Game against #1 Georgia. Alabama had a couple of one-score games over its last three, so we should expect a spirited performance for the playoff committee.
Week 13 College Football Pick - Alabama (-19.5)
#10 Oklahoma at #7 Oklahoma State
|Spread||+4.5 (-110)||-4.5 (-110)|
|Totals||O49.5 (-110)||U49.5 (-110)|
Bedlam is going to be a blast this season with both teams inside the Top-10. Only two of these games in the last seven meetings have even been close, with Oklahoma winning six of them by 10+ points. With that being said, Oklahoma State is the favorite here by over a field goal, and that says a lot considering the recent history between the teams.
It should not go overlooked that Oklahoma is only ranked #10 this season, despite having some major preseason expectations. Look for the Cowboys to get it done in the rivalry game!
