College Football: Vegas Odds – Week 13 Best Bets With and Against the Spread

Week 13, the last week of the regular season in College Football. There hasn’t been a single week this season that there hasn’t been some sort of excitement, whether it be from a top 25 team, or an upset. For the last time this season, let’s take a look at my picks for the best bets with and against the spread.

Ohio State Buckeyes (-7) vs Michigan Wolverines

The Ohio State Buckeyes aren’t just winning games this season, they are winning games in a very convincing fashion, especially since their lone loss to Oregon early in the season. In their ten victories this season, but Buckeyes have won by at least seven points in every matchup. The Ohio State offense has been averaging 47.2 points per game on 559.5 total yards per game. The Michigan Wolverines, on the other hand, have been averaging 36.9 points per game on 447.9 total yards per game.

On the defensive side of the ball, the Buckeyes are giving up just 19 points per game on 355.6 total yards per game. The Wolverines are giving up an even more impressive 16.3 points per game on 306.8 total yards per game. Look for the Buckeyes to win in convincing fashion in their final regular-season Big Ten matchup.

UTSA Roadrunners (-10) vs North Texas Mean Green

The UTSA Roadrunners are looking to stay undefeated, and stay one of three undefeated teams this season, along with Georgia and Cincinnati. The Roadrunners are already set to host the Conference USA Championship game, but that undefeated season looks so good while recruiting. The Roadrunners are averaging 38.2 points per game on 439.6 total yards per game. The Mean Green, on the other hand, is averaging 27.1 points per game on 439 total yards per game.

On the defensive side of the ball, the Roadrunners are allowing just 20.1 points per game on 336.8 total yards per game. The Mean Green is averaging 27.9 points per game on 379.3 total yards per game. The difference-maker in this game would be if the Roadrunners can stop the Mean Green run game. Look for the Roadrunners to come out of this game undefeated, and to cover the ten-point spread.

Texas A&M Aggies vs LSU Tigers (+6.5)

The Ed Orgeron era at LSU is coming to a close after this weekend unless the Tigers pull off the victory and become bowl eligible. The Aggies are looking for their first victory over LSU since the 1994 season. On the offensive side of the ball, the Aggies are averaging 29.8 points per game on 400.3 total yards per game. The Tigers, are averaging just a bit less at 27.1 points per game on 370 total yards per game.

LSU closes the regular season against No. 14 Texas A&M on Saturday at Tiger Stadium. The Tigers are one win from bowl eligibility.

On the defensive side of the ball, the Aggies are only giving up 14.9 points per game on 319.8 total yards per game. For the Tigers, they are giving up 25.5 points per game on 379.1 total yards per game. Even though the numbers would say that the Aggies should come out victorious, I think the will to get one more victory for their long-time coach is going to lift the Tigers against the Aggies this weekend.

I’m Brian Handzel. I’m a huge baseball fan. On any given night you can catch me watching a game, whether it is MLB, MiLB, College, or local summer leagues. As my wife says, I’m obsessed with the game. I’m even a credentialed media member for the Syracuse Mets, the Triple-A affiliate of the New York Mets. When I’m not watching baseball I’m spending time with my wife and two children, and secretly trying to get them to enjoy the game as well.
