College Football Picks against the spread for November 13
Iowa vs Minnesota
The Big Ten is now a mainstay on a Friday night college football menu. The Hawkeyes are 3.5 favorites in this game. The spread has moved nearly two points which may be surprising with only 51 percent of the betting action on the road team.
Minnesota is in big trouble in this game. Running back Mohamed Ibrahim has scored ten times in the short season and is the focal point of this offense. However, Iowa can stop the run. They allow 2.6 yards per carry and they are stout upfront. It does not help the Golden Gophers that the Hawkeyes are a perfect 3-0-1 against the spread (ATS) in the last four meetings.
Iowa can run too as evidenced by the 226 yards against the Spartans. Unfortunately, Minnesota cannot stop the run as they allowed 181 yards to lowly Illinois. The Hawkeyes are 17-6 ATS in their last 23 games as a road favorite and they are the best bet in this game.

East Carolina vs Cincinnati
The Bearcats are big favorites in this game for a good reason. They are getting 65 percent of the bets and are now listed as 27.5 point favorites at the A+ rated sportsbooks. This betting line may only get bigger considering that the Bearcats are one of the best teams in the country.
The Bearcats are dominant on defense where they are allowing just 10 points per game to the opposition. The average final score of their football games this season is 39-14. That is not good news for an East Carolina team who is clearly at the bottom of the college football world. The Bearcats are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 home games and will be playing the last home game of the season.
East Carolina has gone 3-3 ATS this year despite winning just one game, so they do put up a fight. The defense is weak and they have allowed over 450 yards per game this season. This includes an ugly run defense that is ranked 103rd nationally. The Pirates are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings overall and 0-5 ATS in the last five meetings in Cincinnati. Normally this could be a letdown spot for the Bearcats, but not this year. This spread is only going to get higher, so I would bet it now.
This team will want to send the seniors out with a blowout victory.
