Michigan State at Ohio State
It is pretty tempting to take the Spartans and the double-digits considering that they are the No. 7 team in the country. However, Ohio State is playing their best football right now and they realize a big win at home will cement their stake to a playoff spot. The Buckeyes have covered four straight in this series and the Spartans fade down the stretch with a 5-12 ATS record in November since 20218. Back the Buckeyes.
Arkansas at Alabama
In another battle of top-25 teams, the SEC features the Razorbacks vs the Crimson Tide. Alabama is the better team and they are 9-1 ATS as a home favorite but don’t count out the scrappy Hogs. This will be the first time Alabama QB sees the type of defense that Arkansas runs. That will lead to confusion and turnovers early. The Razorbacks will try o run and control the clock which will make for a lower-scoring game. The Razorbacks are 6-2 ATS as a road underdog and they keep it close.
Washington at Colorado
The Huskies are in a tailspin after losing a big game and watching their coach get fired. They will have little motivation for a game in Mile High air against a CU team that is improving every week. The Huskies are 2-10 against the spread when playing a team with a losing record and the Buffaloes are 7-3 ATS as a home dog.
Oregon at Utah
This is always a popular betting spot. The lower-ranked team is a favorite at home against a higher-ranked team. Utah has covered 14 of their last 21 games as a home favorite and this is a game that can put this football team in the top ten. Utah is a top team defensively leading the conference in sacks. They will harass the Oregon offense all night long. The Ducks are 3-7 ATS as a road underdog and they are knocked out of the playoff picture.
