Oklahoma vs Texas
When it comes to big games, the Red River Rivalry is one of the biggest and the best. Top-ranked Oklahoma will face off against their bitter rival. Many may be surprised that Oklahoma is a small (-3.5) point favorite, but that just shows how close this series is. Texas QB Casey Thompson is motivated to win this game and the Longhorns are averaging over 550 yards on offense since he took over. The Sooners are 2-7 against the spread (ATS) in the last nine meetings and will stumble again in this game. Texas is 6-1 ATS in the last seven games overall and they win the game.
Georgia vs Auburn
After watching the Georgia Bulldog defense dominate the Arkansas Razorbacks last week it may be easy to see why they are double-digit favorites against the Auburn Tigers. Georgia will look past this game. They have crushed Auburn in recent history winning the last four meetings and will not take this game seriously. If there is a good time to bet on the Tigers it is when they are a home dog. The Tigers are 10-4 ATS as a home underdog and 14-6 ATS in the last 20 games at home. Auburn keeps it close.
Notre Dame vs Virginia Tech
Notre Dame is out of the playoff picture. After getting beat by Cincinnati at home, this team literally has no chance of making the playoffs. That is deflating for a team with high aspirations. Now they have to travel to Blacksburg to play in one of the toughest venues in the country. The Hokies have already beaten a ranked team and they are 11-5 ATS at home against teams with a winning record. This spread is small, so it is tempting to take the Irish, but don’t do it.
