Sharp College Football Betting Picks of the Week | Nov. 15th Edition
Michigan State Spartans +20.0 at Ohio State Buckeyes
First place in the Big Ten East Division is up for grabs on Saturday when the Ohio State Buckeyes host the Michigan State Spartans. Surprisingly the spread is 20 points for this matchup, and that just doesn’t feel right at all.
Michigan State has the best running back in the country in Kenneth Walker III and he has already rushed for 1,473 yards and 17 touchdowns this season. The Spartans are still looking for more balance on offense but Walker is going to have a big game on Saturday.
Ohio State has been putting on an offensive clinic since a loss to Oregon, and the Buckeyes will try to pick up the pace in this game. The Buckeyes are going to pick up another win, but it’s hard to see them covering 20.0 points.
Take the 20 points and bet on the Spartans on the road in this matchup.
Oklahoma Sooners -5.0 vs. Iowa State Cyclones
The Oklahoma Sooners just suffered a tough road loss to Baylor on Saturday, and that doesn’t spell good news for Iowa State. Oklahoma is going to come into this game with a new sense of focus, and the Sooners are likely to put up a great performance in this one.
Iowa State also suffered a heartbreaking 41-38 loss to Texas Tech in Week 11, but this has been a disappointing season for the Cyclones. The overall numbers look pretty good for Iowa State, but they just have struggled to win the biggest games.
Oklahoma is going to put up a ton of points in this game, and it’s hard to see the Cyclones keeping pace. This was a game circled on the calendar in the preseason, but it should be all Oklahoma this time around.
Take the Sooners -5.0 as they win this game and cover the spread.
Oregon Ducks Moneyline at Utah Utes
The Pac-12 Conference has been one of the most competitive leagues in the country this season, but two of the best teams are set to square off this weekend. The Oregon Ducks are actually 2.5 point road underdogs this weekend at Utah despite being in first place of the Pac-12.
Utah has now won three straight games and the offense has been on fire in those wins. The Utes are averaging 35.7 points per game, but they are going to be tested in a big way on Saturday.
Oregon is also scoring over 35 points per game, but it is their defense that can really start to take over a game. The Ducks have already picked up a road win at Ohio State this season, and it’s hard to see them not winning this game.
Utah will keep things close, but taking Oregon Moneyline is the way to go.
