Week 13 College Football Picks Against the Spread

NCAA Football: Ohio State at Maryland

Week 13 College Football Picks Against the Spread gets aggressive. My picks this season have fizzled as we stumble to the finish line. So let’s pick a ton of games and see if we can finish really strong. It’s Rivalry Week with a ton of big games that have a ton implications. There is also a bunch of games with little to no implication outside of bowl eligibility but have the opportunity to be a fun watch especially while in a turkey coma on the couch.

Ohio State PK at Michigan

Ohio State hasn’t lived up to the expectations many had for them this season and finally lost their first game since Virginia Tech a season ago this past week against Michigan State. This week they head on the road to take on their bitter rivals, Michigan Wolverines. On offense the Buckeyes have been inconsistent and not used enough Ezekiel Elliott. They face a really impressive Michigan defense that will give them trouble all day. Luckily for the Buckeyes they also have a very strong defense loaded with talent. They should give Jake Rudock a problem the entire game. After the loss it will be a loose Ohio State that will want to finish strong as the winner of this game can play in the Big 10 title game with a Michigan State loss. Ohio State is the right side. Take the more talented team even if they are on the road.

Alabama Crimson Tide +14 at Auburn Tigers

In rivalry games like this one they typically say throw the record books out. They can provide crazy results that make College Football so fun. That said this version of the Iron Bowl will not be one of those games. The Crimson Tide have got it rolling this season and are very much a National Championship contender. Auburn on the other hand have not. Jeremy Johnson didn’t live up to the high expectations many had for him. Sean White who took over for him wasn’t able to do much better. I expect Derrick Henry to run all over the Tigers on Saturday leading to a win and cover for Alabama,

Georgia Bulldogs -5 at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

The triple option can be a problem for teams that aren’t used to seeing it. However these Bulldogs played Georgia Southern a week ago which sets them up very nicely for this game. Georgia Southern runs a better version that the Yellow Jackets have run this year. Georgia Tech has underwhelmed this season on both sides of the ball. The Bulldog offense should be able to get the run game going with Sony Michel. Garrett Greyson will need to avoid the costly turnover in this spot and I think he can. I expect Georgia to cover this game even on the road.

Arizona State Sun Devils +4 at California Golden Bears

Arizona State was a team that was thought to be a legitimate College Football Playoff team. However the offense was underwhelming to start but has rebounded with quarterback Mike Bercovici. The defense on the other hand has been a problem most of the season. Jared Goff can put up an impressive game against the Devils defense but his offensive line has been a problem. Arizona State brings a ton of pressure that should give them problems. Assuming the offense can do enough they should cover the 4 point spread and have a shot to win outright. Which is very much in play against the Bears poor defense.

Florida Gators +2.5 vs Florida State Seminoles

The suspension of Will Grier has really hurt the Gator offense and led to some closer than they should be wins. Their defense has been the difference and help they win games. They will have their hands full this week with running back Dalvin Cook. He will be critical if the Seminoles want to win this week. This game will be in the Swamp and I expect the Gators to get up for this rivalry game. Treon Harris will have to do enough against a very talented Florida State defense and I think he will. Gators will cover and win this game rolling into the SEC title game.
