College Football Week 11 Against the Spread Odds

Now that Auburn is the third ranked team in the nation, they’re going to try and stay there by not only beating Texas A&M this Saturday, but by beating their opponent by a lot of points. Ohio State and Michigan battle it out in the biggest game in the Big Ten this season while Oregon will try and avoid the upset to Utah on the road.

My College Football Week 11 Against the Spread Picks

Texas A&M Aggies at No. 3 Auburn Tigers
When:  Saturday, Nov. 8 at 3:30 pm ET
TV: CBS
Betting Line:  Auburn -21.5

Analysis: This is a good game for Auburn to pad their resume. The Tigers are only 4 and 4 against the spread this season, but they’re scoring close to 40 points a game and averaging close to 500 yards per game.

Texas A&M will once again start Kyle Allen at quarterback and the freshman had all sorts of trouble against University of Louisiana-Monroe even though the Aggies were favored by a stunning 32.5 points in that game. A&M barely won 21 to 16.

Auburn’s defense figures to shut down the Aggies’ offense in this contest while scoring at will against an Aggies’ defense that really can’t stop anybody. Auburn should approach the 59 to 0 pasting that rival Alabama put on A&M a few weeks ago.

College Football Week 11 Against the Spread Pick: Auburn -21.5

No. 11 Ohio State Buckeyes at No. 6 Michigan State Spartans
When:  Saturday, Nov.8 at 8:00 pm ET
TV:  ABC
Betting Line: Michigan State -3.5

Analysis: Coach Urban Meyer at Ohio State just finds guys to play quarterback. When he was at Utah, he found Alex Smith, now a veteran in the NFL and one of the most consistent signal callers in the league. When Braxton Miller went down for the Buckeyes earlier this season, all Urban did was insert freshman J.T. Barrett.

Barrett has turned into a solid quarterback. He’s completing close to 65% of his passes while throwing 23 touchdowns to only 7 interceptions. Barrett leads a Buckeyes team into the most important game of the season, a battle against Michigan State.

As good as Barrett is, he’s going to find things difficult versus a Sparty defense that is allowing only 279 total yards per game, including allowing only 184 passing yards per. Michigan State’s offense should be able to put points on the board against Ohio State’s defense.  

College Football Week 11 Against the Spread Pick: Michigan State -3.5

No. 5 Oregon Ducks at No. 17 Utah Utes
When:  Saturday, Nov.8 at 10:00 pm ET
TV:  ESPN
Betting Line: Oregon -9.5

Analysis: As good as Oregon has been lately, and the Ducks have been very good when covering in every single game since the loss to Arizona, Utah has been just as impressive. The Utes’ defense has flat out stuffed opposing Pac 12 offenses.

USC scored only 21 points in a 24 to 21 Utah victory two games ago. ASU could put up only 19 in a 19 to 16 win over the Utes in Utah’s last game. The defense is giving up 21 points per game on average while holding teams to less than 130 yards per game on the ground.

Oregon is a massively talented team, no doubt, but the Ducks are giving up what should be over 10 points in this contest on game day. Oregon’s D is still allowing 25 points and close to 460 yards per game. The Ducks should win straight up but covering the spread might be difficult to do.  

College Football Week 11 Against the Spread Pick: Utah +9.5
