We’re heading into the homestretch of the college football season, and the stakes continue to rise for the best teams in the country.
It makes for compelling football, and some offer great gambling opportunities to bettors looking to put some money down.
Last week, we had an even week of 3-3-1, so this week we’ll look to get back to our winning ways,
Take a look below for our seven best bets of the Week 11 college football slate (* indicates home team).
LAST WEEK: 3-3-1
Georgia* (-14) over Auburn
Georgia has been lights out at home this year, and while a 14-point line is substantial against a ranked team, Auburn has hardly been impressive so far this season, with losses to Mississippi State and Tennessee.
Bulldogs roll under the lights in front of the home crowd.
Alabama* (-24) over Mississippi State
Last week Alabama dominated LSU to a point where it’s tough to imagine any team giving them a challenge.
Maybe the Tide is due for a rough game after being tested for the first time of the year, but that test ended in a 29-0 victory, and it’s highly unlikely that Mississippi State is capable of doing any more damage than the Tigers did.
We’re probably known it all season, but now the fact is clear: Alabama is the best team in the country, and unless Clemson can do something special in the national championship game, Nick Saban and company are on their way to another title.
Florida State (+16.5) over Notre Dame*
Notre Dame may be undefeated this season, but they haven’t been great at covering double-digit spreads as favorites. Last week they were a push as 10-point favorites against Northwestern, and the two weeks before that they came up short against the number facing off against Pittsburgh and Navy.
The Seminoles have had a nightmare season I’m sure they’d like to forget. But big programs have a way of showing up for a moment, and playing spoiler to Notre Dame’s perfect season is their biggest opportunity left to make an impression on a national stage.
Take the points and hope the Noles can keep pace.
