    Iowa at Wisconsin (-12) – (ABC, 3:30 p.m. ET)

    Wow. Sure Iowa caught Ohio State in a great spot for a letdown coming off their big PSU comeback win, but 55-24? Nobody saw that coming. Entering last week’s game, the Hawkeye offense had topped 19 points only once in their previous 5 conference games. The only team they looked good offensively against was Illinois who is the worst team in the Big Ten. Take that game out and Iowa had averaged just 14 PPG. That’s 56 points in four conference games for Iowa (vs Northwestern, Michigan State, Minnesota, and Penn State) and 100 in the other two (Ohio State and Illinois)! After getting outgained in each of their first four Big Ten games, the Hawks have now outgained Minnesota (by 34 yards) and Ohio State (by 116 yards) on back to back weeks. This offense was as balanced as they could possibly be last week rushing for 243 yards and passing for 244 yards. That was vs an OSU defense that held a very potent PSU team to 283 total yards and just 91 yards rushing a week earlier.

    Iowa QB Nate Stanley is slowing turning into one of the Big Ten’s best. He led the way last Saturday with 5 TD passes and no interceptions. On the season, Stanley, a sophomore, now has 23 TD’s and just 4 interceptions. Their rushing attack was averaging 3.6 YPC in league play coming into the game and ripped the OSU defense for 6.4 YPC on Saturday. It’s not like the Buckeyes did nothing offensively. They had 371 total yards and averaged 5.8 YPP. Four OSU turnovers, however, turned into 17 Iowa points and one interception was in the endzone taking points away from the Bucks.

    Wisconsin looked a bit vulnerable last week as we felt they might. The Badgers got down 10-0 in the game before outscoring Indiana 45-7 the rest of the way. As per usual Wisconsin dominated the ground game 237 to 40 which led to a 2 to 1 time of possession edge. Freshman RB Jonathan Taylor came back strong after sitting out the 2nd half of the Illinois game with a leg injury. Taylor ran for 45 yards on the Badgers first play from scrimmage and racked up 183 yards rushing for the game. We’ve mentioned it before but this offense is completely different with Taylor in the game. The concern is his durability moving forward. He is a true freshman and he’s already carried the ball 190 times on the season which is the most in the Big Ten.

    After allowing 146 yards and 10 points on IU’s first three drives of the game, the UW defense locked in. After that, they gave up just 120 total yards and 7 points on the Hoosiers final 10 offensive possessions. The Badger defense has held every opponent but one to 17 points or less and in the one game they didn’t, vs Northwestern, the Cats scored 2 TD’s in the final 4:46 of the game to get to 24. Wisconsin definitely has some injury concerns heading into this game as their top WR Quintez Cephus is out and could be for awhile with a leg injury. They’ll also be missing starting LB Chris Orr as both were injured last week.

    INSIDE THE NUMBERS – Wisconsin topped Iowa 17-9 on the road last year and outgained the Hawks 423 to 236. That was the 4th win in the last 5 meetings for the Badgers with their only loss during that stretch coming in 2015 by a final score of 10-6. The road team has covered 8 of the last 10 in this intense rivalry. This current number of Wisconsin -13 is quite high for this series. In fact, the last time either of these teams were favored by double digits in this match up was back in 2000. This series has been a low scoring, defensive battle for the most part as only 6 of the last 34 meetings have topped 50 points. The Hawkeyes have been a double digit underdog twice this year and covered both easily beating OSU outright as a 21 point dog and nearly upsetting PSU as a 13 point dog. That makes Iowa and impressive 15-4-1 ATS the last 20 times they’ve been an underdog of 10 points or more

    Michigan State at Ohio State (-15.5) – (FOX, 12:00 p.m. ET)

    MSU pulled the big upset at home last week topping Penn State to keep their fate in their own hands when it comes to the Big Ten East title. Sparty kicked the game winning field goal as time ran out and topped the Nittany Lions 27-24. The game was interrupted by a 3 hour and 22 minute lightning delay as the contest took 7 hours from start to finish. That win sets up the Spartans huge showdown with OSU this week as both teams control their own destiny in the Big Ten East. MSU’s rush defense continues to be a brick wall holding a very good Penn State rushing attack to just 65 yards. They continue to lead the Big Ten in rush defense allowing just 87 YPG on 2.9 YPC. The only conference game in which they allowed more than 100 rushing yards was vs Michigan and the Wolverines tallied just 102 on the ground in that game.

    This week’s match up at Ohio State will be an interesting one to say the least with the old cliché “unstoppable force vs immovable object” coming into play. That’s because OSU’s running game leads the Big Ten averaging 5.9 YPC. If MSU’s defense has trouble slowing down the Buckeyes, can the Spartan offense keep up? MSU is 11th in the league in scoring at just 24 PPG, a full 20 points below Ohio State. Last Saturday was just the 2nd time in the last 7 games the Spartans were able to top 18 points (in regulation). If QB Brian Lewerke keeps up his stellar play, they may just be able to. Lewerke has thrown for 845 yards and 6 TD’s in his last two games alone.

    What can we say about Ohio State? They were obviously flat last week after coming from behind to beat Penn State a week earlier. It was a game OSU had circled for a year and they weren’t ready for what was about to hit them last week. QB JT Barrett who had been fantastic this season throwing for 25 TD’s and only 1 interception coming into the game, probably took himself out of Heisman consideration with his 4 interception performance last Saturday. The 55-24 loss in Iowa City was the worst setback in Urban Meyer’s career.

    The defense which has been stellar for most of the season was shredded for nearly 500 yards by an Iowa offense that was struggling coming into the game. After allowing only 7 offensive TD’s in their previous 4 games, the Buckeye defense gave up 6 offensive TD’s to Iowa last Saturday. That was a Hawkeye offense that put up only 12 offensive TD’s in their first 5 Big Ten games. Despite that terrible outing, OSU remains the top team in the conference in yards per play differential at +2.5 (7.2 YPP offensively and 4.7 YPP defensively). The also lead the league by a wide margin in YPG differential at +226 with no other team topping +171. They key moving forward will be trying to figure out OSU’s mental state. Will they bounce back and play at a high level after their embarrassing performance or will they take the “I don’t care” mentality now that they have basically been eliminated from the College Football Playoff?

    INSIDE THE NUMBERS
    – MSU has been very competitive in this series as of late winning 3 of the last 6 meetings with their 3 losses coming by a combined 14 points. Last year OSU was a 20 point road favorite in this match up and squeaked out a 17-16 win. Dating back to 1980, the Spartans are 34-23 ATS as a double digit underdog. As an underdog of any number, MSU is an impressive 18-4-1 ATS their last 23. Since 1981, the Buckeyes are 1-9 ATS in this series when a favorite of 10 points or higher.

    Purdue at Northwestern (-4.5) – (ESPN2, 7:00 p.m. ET)

    The Boilers cracked their 3 game losing streak with a 29-10 win last Saturday over Illinois. After winning 3 of their first 5 games to start the season, Purdue dropped 3 straight tight games coming into this game which made this one a must win if they have any hopes of going to a bowl game. Purdue has been much more competitive overall this season under first year head coach Jeff Brohm with 4 of their 5 losses being one score games and coming by a combined 18 points. The Boilermakers put together a balanced attack in their win over Illinois with 236 yards rushing and 209 yards rushing. After scoring only 45 combined points their previous 3 games the offense put 29 on the board and outgained the Illini by 185 yards.

    Starting QB David Blough put together a solid game before a serious leg injury early in the 4th quarter ended his season. That means Elijah Sindelar takes over under center and while he has played sparingly the last two games, he was in a rotation with Blough for much of the season. Sindelar has thrown for just under 1,000 yards and has 7 TD passes on the season. The Purdue defense continues to impress allowing just 19 PPG on the season (5th in the Big Ten) after allowing more than 30 PPG in each of their previous 5 seasons.

    After starting the conference with an 0-2 record, the Cats have won 4 straight with their last three all coming in OT! Last week they traveled to Nebraska as 2 point favorites and topped the Huskers 31-24 in overtime. They have now beaten Iowa, MSU, and Nebraska all in overtime on consecutive Saturdays. The Cats dominated last Saturday’s game in the stat sheet outgaining Nebraska by 138 yards which included a 232 to 112 edge on the ground. After struggling for much of the early season, the NW offense has now topped 400 yards in 3 of their last 4 games including their 475 yard performance last Saturday.

    The Cats are now one of just five Big Ten teams averaging over 400 YPG offensively. In their game vs Nebraska they were able to win the game and rack up nearly 500 yards despite going just 1 for 11 on 3rd downs. That has been one downside to this offense for much of the season as they rank near the bottom of the Big Ten in 3rd down conversion rated at just 34%. Their win over Nebraska made them bowl eligible for the third straight season.

    INSIDE THE NUMBERS - Last year Northwestern traveled to West Lafayette as a 13 point favorite and rolled over the Boilers 45-17 putting up over 600 total yards in the process. Purdue has been a big time money maker on the road as of late covering 15 of their last 19 games away from home. This will be the 3rd straight year Northwestern is favored in this Big Ten battle, however from 1980 – 2014, the Cats were favored only 5 times vs Purdue. Northwestern is 10-3 ATS the last 13 times they’ve been a favorite of less than a TD.

    Nebraska at Minnesota (-2.5) – (FS1, 12:00 p.m. ET)


    The Huskers continue to play out their rudderless season with a home loss in OT to Northwestern last Saturday. After the Nebraska brass let go of their AD a few weeks ago, head coach Mike Riley need a miracle to stay on board after this season and the Huskers have now lost 3 of their last 4 games. Last week’s 31-24 loss in OT looked close on the scoreboard but the Huskers were outgained for the 3rd time in 4 weeks as Northwestern tallied 475 yards to just 337 for Nebraska. Starting QB Tanner Lee, who seemed to have things moving in the right direction after a terrible start to the season, threw 3 interceptions. Lee had thrown just 1 pick in his previous 4 games.

    The offense isn’t the only side of the ball with issues. Nebraska currently rank 13th in the Big Ten in total defense allowing over 400 YPG. In their defense, they’ve been shredded for 466, 475, and 633 yards vs Wisconsin, Northwestern, and Ohio State who are all in the top 4 in the league in total offense. Against lower tier offensive teams (Purdue, Rutgers, and Illinois) they’ve done much better holding those three opponents to an average of 252 yards per game. This week they play a Minnesota offense that ranks 12th overall in the Big Ten. Expect a better showing from the defense this weekend.

    The Gophs only Big Ten win was a tight 24-17 game vs the worst team in the Big Ten (Illinois). Last Saturday they went on the road for the 2nd straight Saturday and were not competitive losing 33-10 at Michigan. The Minnesota defense, which had been playing fairly well, made a struggling Michigan offense look like a juggernaut. The Wolverines simply pounded it down their throats with 371 yards rushing (on a whopping 10 YPC) while completing only 8 passes the entire game. The Minnesota run defense should find it a bit easier this weekend vs a Nebraska team that has been outrushed by 757 yards over their last 4 games (an average of 190 YPG).

    Forget about the defense, if Minnesota doesn’t start finding a way to put some points on the board, they’ll continue to lose. They’ve scored fewer offensive TD’s this season than everyone in the Big Ten not named Illinois. Their rushing attack is solid, but they have ZERO passing game right now. Since PJ Fleck switched to Demry Croft as his starting QB they have completed a TOTAL of 19 passes in 3 games. In his three starts Croft is 19 for 56 (34%) with 1 TD and 3 interceptions. Conor Rhoda was the starter before the change and he has not seen the field since.

    INSIDE THE NUMBERS
    – Last year Nebraska scored the game winning TD with 7:00 remaining and held on for a 24-17 home win over the Gophers. The Huskers have actually been better on the road this year where they are 2-1 with wins over Purdue & Illinois to go along with a 7-point loss at Oregon. Minny is just 3-11 ATS their last 14 games at home as a favorite (1-3 ATS this year). This hasn’t really been a close series. Since Nebraska joined the Big Ten, these two have met 6 times with the average margin of victory being 16 points.

    Rutgers at Penn State (-31) – (Big Ten, 12:00 p.m. ET)

    Rutgers has already doubled their win total from last year as they sit with a 4-5 record after their home win vs Maryland last week. That win also put them at 3-3 in league play which is not bad for a team that won a grand total of ONE Big Ten game the last two years combined. While the record looks solid, let’s also keep in mind that Rutgers, while winning a few games, is getting beat basically every week on the stat sheet. They have been outgained in every game this year with the exception of Morgan State. That includes last week when they topped Maryland 31-24. The Knights scored with 7:30 remaining to take the 31 -24 lead and the Terp offense was put in a very tough spot for their final drive of the game when starting QB Max Bortenschlager who was dinged on the previous possession couldn’t return. His absence meant 4th stringer Ryan Brand, a walk on transfer from Air Force, had to lead Maryland on their final drive. Brand actually gave them a chance pushing it to the Rutgers 15 yard line before turning the ball over on downs. While they have improved, let’s put it in perspective. Rutgers ranks last in the Big Ten in total offense and near the bottom in total defense. They have won 3 conference games but been outgained by 1,121 yards in those 6 games (a deficit of 186 YPG)! They are also 31 point underdogs to a team that sits just one spot ahead of them in the standings!

    How quickly things can change over a few weeks in college football. PSU is a prime example. Two weeks ago they had visions of the College Football Playoff dancing in their heads and now they are completely out of that discussion and have pretty much eliminated themselves from the Big Ten East race. Last week’s 27-24 road loss dropped the Lions to 4-2 in conference play with losses to both teams that sit ahead of them in the standings (Michigan State & Ohio State). After blowing a 15-point fourth quarter lead a week earlier at Ohio State, last week’s result in East Lansing was not surprising. That was a very tough spot for PSU to bounce back and play well. All American RB Saquon Barkley was shut down for the 2nd straight week. After rushing for just 44 yards on 21 carries at OSU the Spartans held Barkley to only 63 yards on the ground last week. Barkley only touched the ball 17 times the entire game with 14 rushes and 3 receptions. How that happens with a player that talented is beyond us. A definite mistake in our opinion by head coach James Franklin and company. We’ll make a prediction that Barkley sees the ball A LOT this weekend after that situation. Add that to the fact that Rutgers is 13th in the conference in rush defense allowing 190 YPG and we could step in and come up with a great gameplan in this one. What will PSU’s mental state be in this one and moving forward will probably be the key to their ATS success or failure.

    INSIDE THE NUMBERS – PSU has won all 3 meetings since Rutgers joined the Big Ten by margins of 39, 25, and 3 points. Rutgers as covered 6 of their last 7 games and they are 7-2 ATS this season. Penn State was 15-1-1 ATS their previous 17 games before their ATS loss at Michigan State last Saturday. The Nittany Lions are 8-0-1 their last 9 home games and have topped the spread by a combined 165 points or 20 PPG above and beyond the number. Before Rutgers started making their bettors some money this year with a 7-2 ATS mark, they were 5-13 ATS their previous 18 games coming into this year.

    Michigan (-16.5) at Maryland – (Big Ten, 3:30 p.m. ET)

    Could the Maryland Terrapins have any more bad luck when it comes to the QB position? After losing their starter (Pigrome) and back up (Hill) early in the season, now current starter and 3rd stringer Max Bortenschlager could be on the shelf this weekend. Head coach DJ Durkin said it will be a game time decision for Bortenschlager and was very vague on what the injury actually was. Those in the know feel it was a possible concussion although he may have a shoulder problem as well. If he can’t go, walk on Ryan Brand, a transfer from Air Force, will get the nod. Brand was thrust into action late in the 4th quarter last week and nearly led the Terps to a game tying TD on their final drive at Rutgers. He drove the team 63 yards in 17 plays but was stopped on downs inside the Rutgers 20 yard line in a 31-24 loss. Brand is not known as a proficient passer so the Terps will have to rely heavily on the run in this game. That could be a problem as Michigan allows only 3 YPC and held Minnesota to 90 yards on 44 carries in last week’s blowout win.

    The Wolverines looks like they’ve turned the corner offensively the last few games which bad news for a Maryland defense that ranks dead last in the Big Ten in total defense (433 YPG). They allowed Rutgers to put up 346 yards last week and while that may not seem like much, the Scarlet Knights have only topped 300 yards one other time in conference play.

    The Michigan offense seems to have gotten a shot in the arm with the insertion of new starting QB Brandon Peters. He entered the game in the 2nd quarter of the Rutgers game for the first time this season and proceeded to lead Michigan to score 4 TD’s on their next 5 possession with their only non-scoring drive ending in a missed FG. Peters got his first start last weekend vs Minnesota and led the Wolves to 33 points and 427 yards in their 33-10 win. He has now led Michigan on 18 offensive possessions and they have scored TD’s on half of those (9) which is a huge step up from their previous production. Peters hasn’t done much through the air completing just 18 passes in his two games but the offense obviously has responded to him as their starter.

    Staying on the QB theme, starter Wilton Speight, who has been out since late September with a back injury, has started throwing again. There is no time table as to when he might be able to return to game action if at all this season. The Maryland offense has put up 66 points in their last 2 games but you can bet they will be slowed dramatically here vs a Michigan defense that has allowed more than 20 points only once the entire season (PSU).

    INSIDE THE NUMBERS – Michigan crushed Maryland in Ann Arbor last year by a final of 59-3 outgaining the Terps by almost 300 yards. Maryland has been an underdog in every Big Ten game this year with a spread mark of 2-4 ATS. The Terps are just 5-14 ATS the last 19 times they’ve been an underdog in conference play. Michigan has been a road favorite of 2 TD’s or more 12 times since 1997. They are 4-8 ATS in those games.

    Indiana (-8) at Illinois – (Big Ten, 12:00 p.m. ET)

    Indiana remained winless in the Big Ten with a 45-17 home setback at the hands of undefeated Wisconsin last Saturday. We still believe the Hoosiers are better than their 0-6 conference mark as they have played the toughest schedule of anyone in Big Ten play. Five of IU’s six conference losses came at the hands of Wisconsin, Ohio State, Michigan State, Penn State, and Michigan. Their other Big Ten loss was a 3-point setback at Maryland, a game in which they outgained the Terps by 140 yards. Starting QB Peyton Ramsey sat out last week’s game vs Wisconsin and former starter Richard Lagow took over. Lagow is the better passer, however Ramsey gives the Hoosiers a mobile QB who can throw but also beat opponents with his legs of needed. Lagow and IU looked good on offense their first 3 drives putting up 10 points but were held to just 120 total yards after that. Ramsey is questionable again this Saturday with a knee injury.

    The Indiana defense had been playing very well as they had not allowed an opponent to top 400 yards of offense since their season opener vs Ohio State. Wisconsin shredded the Hoosier defense for 407 yards including 237 on the ground. Now IU gets a shot at their first win of the year vs the Big Ten’s worst team. A big step down from who they have been facing off against so far in league play.

    Illinois continues to get rolled week in and week out and that continued last Saturday with a 29-10 loss at Purdue. It was the sixth time this season the Illini have been beaten by double digits. Their only loss that was not by 10 or more was a 24-17 setback at Minnesota. It was also the fifth time in their six Big Ten games the offense had been held to 17 points or less. They are averaging just 16 PPG on the season which is last in the conference by a full 6 PPG (Rutgers is 13th at 22 PPG). Illinois was solid for a half last week as they trailed Purdue just 13-10 at the break. They went scoreless in the 2nd half and Purdue went on to the easy win. Freshman Cam Thomas got his second straight start at QB and played OK in the first half leading Illinois to 10 points on their 5 offensive possessions. He was 10 for 20 overall with 159 yards. That’s fantastic compared to what he did in the previous two games completing a grand total of 4 passes with 3 interceptions. Their young offensive line with 4 freshmen starters continues to have problems allowing 5 sacks and 9 TFL’s in the game. The defense played well in the first half but ran out of gas with Purdue racking up 255 yards in the 2nd half.

    INSIDE THE NUMBERS - This may seem like a meaningless match up between two winless Big Ten teams. However, It is a big rivalry as these two are separated by just 170 miles. This is just the 6th time since 2000 that Indiana has been a Big Ten road favorite (2-4 ATS). The Hoosiers have been a road favorite of 7 or more 19 times since 1987 and they are 13-6 ATS in those games. Illinois is just 1-8 ATS the last 9 times they’ve been a home underdog in conference play.

    SEC Report - Week 11
    November 10, 2017


    Auburn is technically alive for everything despite two defeats. This is evident by its 45/1 odds to win the College Football Playoff at most betting shops. Think about it: If Auburn beats Georgia and Alabama, it would win the West and get a rematch with UGA in Atlanta. If the Tigers could top UGA a second time, they would be SEC champions with a pair of wins over Georgia (currently ranked No. 1 in the CFP rankings) and a win over Alabama (currently No. 2 in the CFP rankings).

    Now I’m not implying – by any stretch – that those three things are going to happen. However, if they do, Auburn’s losses would be at Clemson (14-6) and at LSU (27-23). Therefore, the only one-loss team that would get in the CFP ahead of AU would be Clemson.

    We only point this out to further clarify the ramifications of Saturday’s SEC showdown between Auburn and Georgia on The Plains at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. Eastern on CBS.

    As of Friday afternoon, most books had Georgia listed as a 2.5-point favorite with a total of 49. The Tigers were available on the money line for a +115 return.

    Auburn (7-2 straight up, 4-3-2 against the spread) owns a 4-2 spread record with three outright victories in six games as a home underdog during Gus Malzahn’s five-year tenure. The Tigers are undefeated in four home games this year, going 1-1-2 ATS.

    AU has won back-to-back games both SU and ATS since allowing a double-digit lead to get away in the second half of the loss at LSU. Malzahn’s bunch won at Arkansas (52-20) and then after an open date, it went to Texas A&M last week and captured a 42-27 victory as a 14.5-point road favorite.

    Texas A&M took a 13-7 lead on a short field with 2:39 left in the second quarter, but Auburn went back in front 14-13 on a 53-yard TD pass from Jarrett Stidham to Darius Slayton with 1:36 remaining until halftime. Then the Tigers seized all momentum (and hooked up its backers for first-half wagers) when they got a blocked punt from Mark Miller, who recovered the loose ball in the end zone for a TD and a 21-13 edge at intermission.

    Auburn tacked on two more TDs less than seven minutes into the third quarter and coasted to victory from there. Stidham completed 20-of-27 passes for 268 yards and three touchdowns without an interception. Kerryon Johnson rushed 29 times for 145 yards and one TD, while Slayton had two receptions for 99 yards and one TD. Ryan Davis added seven catches for 80 yards and one TD, while Johnson had five grabs for 29 yards and one TD.

    For the season, Stidham has connected on 66.8 percent of his throws for 1,996 yards with an 11/3 touchdown-to-interception ratio. Stidham, the former five-star recruit who played one year at Baylor in 2015 before transferring to AU, has nine TD passes compared to merely one interception in his team’s last six games.

    Johnson is fourth in the nation with 16 TDs scored. He missed two games, however, so he’s actually No. 1 in the country in points scored per game (13.7 PPG). The junior RB has rushed for 868 yards and 15 TDs while averaging 5.2 yards per carry. Johnson also has 13 receptions for 86 yards and one TD.

    Johnson has become the featured back due to an injury-riddled campaign for junior RB Kam Pettway, who was a first-team All-SEC selection in 2016 when he produced 1,224 rushing yards and seven TDs. Pettway is currently sidelined indefinitely due to a shoulder injury. He had rushed for 305 yards and six TDs, but was only averaging 4.0 YPC in five games played.

    Davis has been Stidham’s favorite target, hauling in 48 receptions for 461 yards and four TDs. Slayton has 13 catches for 401 yards and three TDs, while Will Hastings has grabbed 18 balls for 371 yards and three TDs.

    Auburn is ranked ninth in the nation in scoring defense, allowing only 16.9 points per game. This unit is 14th in the country in total defense, 19th at defending the pass and 24th versus the run. Junior LB Deshaun Davis has a team-high 44 tackles to go with one sack, one tackle for loss and one pass broken up. Sophomore DE Marlon Davidson has recorded 25 tackles, 2.5 sacks, two TFL’s, two QB hurries, one PBU, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery for a 33-yard return.

    Georgia (9-0 SU, 6-3 ATS) is 3-0 both SU and ATS on the road this season. As a road favorite on second-year head coach Kirby Smart’s watch, UGA has compiled a 4-1 spread record.

    Georgia is ranked No. 1 in the College Football Playoff rankings for the second straight week. The Bulldogs won a 24-10 decision over South Carolina last week, but they never threatened to cover the 23.5-point spread. Jake Fromm completed 16-of-22 passes for 196 yards and two TDs without an interception.

    Nick Chubb ran for 102 yards on 20 carries, while Sony Michel produced 81 rushing yards and one TD on 16 attempts. Terry Godwin had three receptions for 53 yards, while Javon Wims had five catches for 46 yards and one TD.

    Fromm replaced former starting QB Jacob Eason early in the first quarter of UGA’s season opener when he sprained his knee. He has remained the starter since then, although Eason has been healthy and ready to play since early October.

    Fromm’s play has made it a no-brainer for Smart to stick with him. The true freshman has completed 63.3 percent of his passes for 1,459 yards with a 15/4 TD-INT ratio. Fromm has also rushed for 98 yards and three scores. Godwin has 19 receptions for 422 yards and five TDs, while Wims has 24 catches for 375 yards and four TDs.

    Chubb has run for a team-best 867 yards and nine TDs, averaging 6.2 YPC. Michel has 710 rushing yards, nine rushing TDs and a 7.9 YPC average. Another true freshman, D’Andre Swift, has rushed for 388 yards and one TD while averaging 7.6 YPC.

    Georgia is ranked fourth in the nation in total defense, seventh at defending the pass, fifth versus the run and third in scoring (11.7 PPG). This unit is led by junior LB Roquan Smith, who has a team-best 70 tackles along with 2.5 sacks, 0.5 TFL’s, three QB hurries, two PBU and one forced fumble. Senior LB Lorenzo Carter had recorded 32 tackles, four sacks, 2.5 TFL’s, six QB hurries and a pair of forced fumbles.

    The ‘under’ is 6-3 overall for UGA, 2-1 in its three true road assignments. The Bulldogs have watched their games average combined scores of 48.2 PPG.

    Since the ‘under’ cashed in Auburn’s first three games, the ‘over’ has hit in six in a row. Totals have been a wash (2-2) in AU’s home outings. The Tigers’ games have averaged combined scores of 53.8 PPG.

    Georgia has won three in a row over Auburn and five of the last six both SU and ATS, including last year’s 13-7 triumph as a 10-point home underdog. Chubb rushed for 101 yards, Eason threw for 208 yards and the UGA defense limited AU to only 164 yards of total offense.

    The ‘under’ has cashed in three straight head-to-head meetings between these bitter rivals and is 5-1 in the last six encounters.

    OTHER SEC GAMES

    Florida at South Carolina
    As of Friday afternoon, most books had South Carolina (6-3 SU, 5-2-2 ATS) listed as a 5.5 or six-point favorite with a total of 43.5 or 44. The Gators were +190 on the money line (risk $100 to win $190).

    Will Muschamp’s second team at USC went ‘over’ its season win total of 5.5 before the end of October. In last week’s loss at UGA, Jake Bentley threw his first interception since a Sept. 23 win over La. Tech. In fact, he was picked off twice by the Bulldogs. Nevertheless, the true sophomore signal caller has led South Carolina to a 10-6 record in his 16 career starts. He has thrown for 1,986 yards this year with a 14/6 TD-INT ratio.

    Since Muschamp took over, the Gamecocks are 2-4-1 ATS as home favorites, 0-2-1 in three such spots this season. They are 3-1 SU and 1-2-1 ATS at home this season, taking its only loss vs. Kentucky back in Week 3.

    Florida (3-5 SU, 2-6 ATS) has lost four in a row while going 1-3 ATS in the process. UF fired third-year head coach Jim McElwain after a 42-7 loss to UGA two weeks ago. Randy Shannon, the former player, assistant and head coach at Miami, is serving as the interim head coach. His debut was a disaster last week at Missouri, where the home team spanked UF by a 45-16 count.

    Shannon gave Malik Zaire, the grad transfer from Notre Dame, his first start of the season. Zaire completed 13-of-19 passes for 158 yards with one interception. He ran for 17 yards on six attempts. Lamical Perine had 66 rushing yards on 19 carries, in addition to catching four balls for 30 yards and one TD.

    However, on the TD grab late in the fourth quarter, Perine injured his knee. He was still listed as ‘questionable’ as of Friday afternoon. Brett Heggie, UF’s second-best offensive lineman, went down at Missouri with a season-ending knee injury. Other starters who won’t make the trip to Columbia due to injuries include senior safety Nick Washington, sophomore LB Kylan Johnson, WR Kadarius Toney, DE Jachai Polite, DE Jordan Sherit, QB Luke Del Rio and leading rusher Malik Davis.

    Totals have been a wash both overall (4-4) and on the road (1-1) for UF. The Gators have watched their games average combined scores of 49.0 PPG.

    The ‘under’ is 6-3 overall for the Gamecocks, 2-2 in their home games. They’ve seen their games average combined scores of 45.1 PPG.

    CBS will provide the telecast at noon Eastern.

    Alabama at Mississippi State

    As of Friday afternoon, most spots had Alabama (9-0 SU, 4-5 ATS) installed as a 13.5-point ‘chalk’ with a total of 52.5. Gamblers could take MSU to win outright for a +400 return (risk $100 to win $400). Kickoff from Starkville is slated for 7:00 p.m. Eastern on ESPN.

    Mississippi State (7-2 SU, 6-3 ATS)
    is 11-10 ATS as a home underdog during Dan Mullen’s nine-year tenure. The Bulldogs are undefeated in five home games this year with a 4-1 spread record. The lone non-cover came in last week’s 34-23 win over UMass as 32-point home ‘chalk.’

    MSU fell victim to the classic look-ahead situation against the Minutemen. In fact, Mullen’s team trailed by seven at intermission, prompting me to jump all over MSU as a 14.5-point favorite for second-half wagers. When the Bulldogs scored a pair of quick third-quarter TDs, I thought I was poised to cash an easy winner.

    It didn’t go like that, though. In fact, I was fortunate that MSU forced a short field goal on a UMass drive into the red zone early in the fourth quarter. Then I just got downright lucky when Deddrick Thomas busted an 83-yard punt return for a TD with 5:00 left, as MSU won a 34-23 decision and covered the number on halftime bets (-7.5 adjusted).

    Nick Fitzgerald threw for only 139 yards and was intercepted twice. To his credit, however, the junior signal caller ran for a team-best 135 yards and two TDs on 17 carries. For the season, Fitzgerald has run for 801 yards and 12 TDs while averaging 6.9 YPC. He has completed 56.8 percent of his passes for 1,459 yards with a 13/10 TD-INT ratio.

    MSU is ranked seventh in the nation in total defense, eighth in pass defense, 23rd versus the run and 15th in scoring (18.0 PPG). Mullen made perhaps the best hire of the offseason when he snagged defensive coordinator Todd Grantham away from Bobby Petrino at Louisville.

    Alabama lost senior leader and starting LB Shaun Dion Hamilton to a season-ending knee injury in last week’s 24-10 non-covering home win over LSU. Dion Hamilton had recorded 40 tackles (second-best on the team), 2.5 sacks, three TFL’s, two QB hurries, one forced fumble and two PBU. Dion Hamilton is the fourth Alabama linebacker to go down with a season-ending injury. On the bright side, star DB Minkah Fitzpatrick (hamstring) has been upgraded to ‘probable’ at MSU.

    Alabama is ranked second in the nation in total defense, first in scoring ‘D’ (9.8 PPG), second in run defense and ninth at defending the pass. The ‘under’ is 3-1 in its last four games.

    Nick Saban’s squad has won eight of its nine games by 14 points or more. The only one-possession game it has played came in a 27-19 win at Texas A&M. This is its second-smallest spread of the season and its shortest number since being favored by 19.5 at Vandy in Week 4. Remember, the Tide was only favored by 7.5 against then-third-ranked FSU in the season opener in Atlanta.

    Alabama has won nine in a row over Mississippi State, going 6-3 ATS during that streak. MSU last tasted victory over the Tide in 2007, Saban’s first year at the helm, when it won 17-12 as a four-point home underdog.

    Arkansas at LSU LSU (6-3 SU, 4-4 ATS) had a 306-299 advantage over Alabama in total offense and easily covered the spread as a 20.5-point underdog in last week’s 24-10 loss at Bryant-Denny Stadium. The Tigers limited the Tide to merely 116 rushing yards on 36 attempts (3.2 YPC average) in a valiant defensive effort.

    Ed Orgeron’s team returns home to face Arkansas as a 17-point favorite. The Tigers have won three of four home games, going 1-2-1 ATS. They took massive defeats to Arkansas in 2014 (17-0) and ’15 (31-14), but avenged those defeats with last year’s 38-10 win in Fayetteville. Derrius Guice torched the Razorbacks for 252 rushing yards and two TDs on 21 carries.

    Arkansas (4-5 SU, 2-6 ATS)
    is a remarkable 9-1 ATS in its last 10 games as a road underdog. The Razorbacks will get starting QB Austin Allen back after he was sidelined for four consecutive games with a shoulder injury. Allen threw for only 152 yards and was intercepted twice vs. LSU last season. Allen has an 8/4 TD-INT ratio this year.

    Bret Bielema’s fifth season at Arkansas has been a major struggle, one that has his job security (and perhaps that of AD Jeff Long’s as well) is major jeopardy. The Razorbacks have won back-to-back games, rallying from 24 points down to win on a last-second FG at Ole Miss two weeks ago. However, last week’s 39-38 victory over a one-win Coastal Carolina squad was nearly a disaster.

    Arkansas had to rally from a 38-25 fourth-quarter deficit to pull out the ugly win as a 24.5-point home favorite. T.J Hammonds got the comeback started with an 88-yard TD run with 10:09 remaining. Then with 1:55 left, Cole Kelley scored on a one-yard plunge to provide the winning points.

    The ‘under’ is 5-4 overall for LSU, but the ‘over’ has hit at a 3-1 clip in its four home outings. Meanwhile, the ‘over’ is on a 6-1 run for the Hogs to improve to 6-3 overall. They’ve seen the ‘over’ go 2-1 in their road assignments and their games have averaged combined scores of 66.0 PPG (regardless of the venue).

    This is a noon Eastern kick from Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge on ESPN.

    Tennessee at Missouri Missouri junior QB Drew Lock is absolutely on fire, throwing 21 TD passes compared to merely three interceptions in his team’s last five games. For the season, Lock has completed 60.7 percent of his throws for 2,795 yards with a 31/9 TD-INT ratio. J’Mon Moore is his favorite target, hauling in 44 receptions for 740 yards and eight TDs.

    Missouri (4-5 SU, 5-4 ATS) picked up its first SEC win in last week’s 45-16 destruction of Florida as a 1.5-point home favorite. The Tigers have won three in a row and even better for our purposes, they’ve covered the number in five consecutive games.

    Since Barry Odom took over for Gary Pinkel before the 2016 season, Missouri is 5-5 ATS as a home favorite. The Tigers went 0-4 ATS in their first four home games this year, but they’ve taken the money in back-to-back home outings.

    After missing three straight games with a shoulder injury, sophomore RB Damarea Crockett has been upgraded to ‘probable’ vs. UT. Crockett rushed for 1,062 yards and 10 TDs with a 6.9 YPC average to garner third-team All-SEC honors as a true freshman in 2016. In Missouri’s first six games this year, he had run for 481 yards and two TDs.

    Tennessee (4-5 SU, 3-6 ATS) is winless in three road games, but it has managed to produce a 2-1 ATS record. The Volunteers are 6-6-1 ATS as road underdogs during Butch Jones’s five-year tenure.

    As of late Friday afternoon, most books had Missouri listed as a 12.5-point favorite with a total of 62. The Vols were +375 on the money line (risk $100 to win $375).

    Kickoff is slated for 7:30 p.m. Eastern on the SEC Network.

    **B.E.’s Bonus Nuggets**


    -- Texas A&M will take on New Mexico at 7:00 p.m. Eastern on ESPNU. The Aggies will be attempting to avoid a third straight loss after setbacks vs. Mississippi State (35-14) and vs. Auburn (42-27). They were favored by 17.5 at most spots late Friday afternoon. The ‘under’ had cashed in four straight A&M games until last week’s loss to Auburn saw the ‘over’ appear. As for New Mexico, it has seen the ‘under’ go 8-1 overall after hitting in four consecutive contests. The Lobos have dropped four in a row while going 1-3 ATS.

    -- Vanderbilt (4-5 SU, 3-5-1 ATS) will face Kentucky in Nashville at 4:00 p.m. Eastern on the SEC Network. Most spots had Vandy favored by 2.5 with a 53.5-point total as of late Friday afternoon. The Commodores snapped a five-game losing streak with last week’s 31-17 win over Western Ky. as a 12.5-point favorite. I went 6-1 last weekend and my only loss was the ‘over’ in this game, with the 48 combined points sliding ‘under’ the 54.5-point total. The ‘over’ had hit in five straight for Vandy before last week’s result on the total. Ralph Webb, the all-time leading rusher in Vandy history even before his senior season started, led the ‘Dores with 104 rushing yards on 23 carries. Junior QB Kyle Shurmur threw for 220 yards and two TDs without an interception. For the season, Shurmur has a stellar 20/3 TD-INT ratio. Vandy has won four of the last six head-to-head meetings with UK, but it had covered the spread in five in a row against UK until dropping a 20-13 decision in Lexington as a three-point road ‘dog last year.

    -- Kentucky (6-3 SU, 2-7 ATS) has won outright in two of its three road outings, going 1-2 ATS. The Wildcats have failed to cover the number in five straight games, including last week’s 37-34 home loss to Ole Miss as 3.5-point ‘chalk.’ The Rebels rallied to win thanks to a seven-yard TD pass from Jordan Ta’amu to D.K. Metcalf with five seconds remaining. In the losing effort, UK sophomore RB Benny Snell had 176 rushing yards and three TDs on 28 carries.

    -- The ‘under’ has cashed in five consecutive Vandy-UK games.

    -- Ole Miss (4-5 SU, 2-6-1 ATS) will take on UL-Lafayette as a 19-point home favorite at noon Eastern on the SEC Network. The Rebels, who are 3-2 SU but just 1-4 ATS at home this season, avoided a three-game losing streak with last week’s come-from-behind victory at UK. Ta’amu was sensational in his second career start for the injured Shea Patterson. The juco transfer hit on 31-of-40 throws for 382 yards and four TDs without an interception. During Mark Hudspeth seven-year tenure with the Ragin’ Cajuns, they’ve compiled a 19-11-1 spread record in 30 games as road underdogs.

    -- The ‘over’ is 8-1 overall for Ole Miss after cashing in each of its last six games. The total vs. UL-Lafayette was up to 67 as of late Friday afternoon.

    -- 5Dimes.eu currently has Alabama listed as a seven-point favorite vs. UGA in a potential matchup at the SEC Championship Game.

    NCAAF

    Saturday, November 11


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    NCAAF Game of the Day: Notre Dame at Miami betting preview and odds
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Miami Hurricanes (+3, 59.5)

    It's no longer the Catholics vs. the Convicts but emotion should be almost as high on Saturday night when No. 6 Miami hosts No. 5 Notre Dame on the national stage in a renewal of their storied rivalry. The Hurricanes made a statement and quieted some of their many critics last week with a resounding 28-10 victory over ACC rival and then-No. 13 Virginia Tech while the Fighting Irish continued to roll with a 48-37 triumph over Wake Forest.

    It will be the first time since 1989 that both schools have been ranked in the Top 10 at the time of their meeting and, as it was in the rivalry's glory days of the 1980s, the teams are right in the thick of the national title race, with Brian Kelly's Irish sitting third in the College Football Playoff rankings and Mark Richt's Hurricanes jumping up to seventh. With the exception of a one-point loss to Georgia -- the No. 1 team in the CFP rankings -- Notre Dame has been plowing through its schedule thanks to Heisman hopeful Josh Adams and a powerful ground attack that has almost 1,000 more yards rushing this year than all of last season. Miami has taken a different path to the top, often needing clutch plays at crunch time to keep its 13-game winning streak alive -- Miami's last loss was 30-27 to Notre Dame last season -- but the Hurricanes showed against Virginia Tech that they have the offensive weapons and defensive speed and muscle to compete for the title. "We like it when we're competing in games like this, late in the year, that are that meaningful," Richt said. "It's what you hope for, it's what you work towards. It just so happens this Saturday night is going to be very meaningful to both teams."

    TV:
    8 p.m. ET, ABC.

    LINE HISTORY:
    Oddsmakers opened Notre Dame as three-point road chalk and early money coming in on the road team briefly raised the line to +3.5, before it returned to the opening number, where it currently sits. The total hit the betting board at 57.5 and money on the over drove that line as high as 60, before fading back to 59.5.

    INJURY REPORT:


    Notre Dame - TE Alize Mack (Probable, Concussion), DL Khalid Kareem (Probable, Knee), RB Josh Adams (Probable, Upper Body), QB Brandon Wimbush (Probable, Hand), RB Dexter Williams (Questionable, Thigh), WR Cameron Smith (Questionable, QB J.D. Carney (Questionable, Concussion).

    Miami - WR Mike Harley (Questionable, Ankle), DB Dee Delaney (Questionable, Knee), DL Demetrius Jackson (Out For Season, Knee).

    ABOUT NOTRE DAME (8-1 SU, 7-2 ATS, 6-3 O/U):
    Led by a bulldozing offensive front, the Irish ground attack (324.8 yards per game) is almost impossible to stop and Adams (132.3 average) has made opponents pay with his home-run ability as he has seven touchdown runs of at least 60 yards this season, although his streak of four straight games with a TD rush of over 70 yards was snapped last week against Wake Forest. "Their offensive line, probably the best in America," Richt said. "I don't think very many people would argue that. ... This is just line up and physically move people off the ball, a kick-your-tail type offensive line and great runners." The Irish defense has had its moments but can be beaten through the air, giving up 245.3 yards passing (90th in the nation) and 15 scores, a weakness that Hurricanes quarterback Malik Rosier (283 yards passing per game) and his dangerous receiving corps will look to exploit.

    ABOUT MIAMI (8-0 SU, 4-4 ATS, 1-7 O/U):
    Adams is not the only one making a living off big plays as the Rosier-led Hurricanes have proven far more adept at producing quick-strike scores -- two of their four touchdowns were over 42 yards against Virginia Tech -- than putting together long methodical drives. But Miami may need to churn out the yardage with running back Travis Homer to keep the defense fresh and off the field as the Hurricanes, although the nation's best at racking up tackles for loss (8.8 per game), have still bent far too often against the run, surrendering 176 yards or more in the four games prior to limiting Virginia Tech to 102. Forcing the Irish into mistakes will be crucial as the Hurricanes added four more turnovers against the Hokies and they now have 20 takeaways (13 interceptions, seven fumble recoveries) to rank fourth in the nation with an average turnover margin of plus-1.38 per game (Notre Dame sits tied for fifth with 1.33).

    TRENDS:


    * Fighting Irish are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall.

    * Hurricanes are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 vs. INDEP.

    * Under is 6-0 in Hurricanes last 6 games overall.

    * Under is 4-0 in Hurricanes last 4 vs. a team with a winning record.

    CONSENSUS:
    The road favorites from Notre Dame are picking up 63 percent of the action on the spread and Over is getting 51 percent of the totals wagers.

    Saturday's Best Bets
    November 10, 2017


    College Football Best Bets

    Although there were some big upsets in the college football world a week ago, none of them occurred at the top as the top five teams in the CFB Playoff rankings remained the same. Georgia, Alabama, Notre Dame, and Clemson still lead the way for a chance at a National Championship this year, but #5 Oklahoma is lurking and could find themselves in a top four spot once this weekend is over.

    That's because the top three teams (Georgia, Alabama, Notre Dame) all have significant road tests on tap this week and it's the two teams atop that list from the SEC that I'm focused on this week.

    Best Bet #1: Auburn ML (+110) and Over 49

    The #1 ranked, and undefeated Georgia Bulldogs go to Auburn this week for a huge SEC game that I believe will result in Georgia's first loss of the year. The Bulldogs have already locked up their spot in the SEC Championship game by winning the SEC East, but they are still after bigger prizes, but I'm not sure this team is ready for it.

    Auburn is no slouch of a team ranked #10 and despite having two losses already this year, they could still create a lot of havoc in the playoff picture by winning the SEC. Auburn has control of their own destiny with home games against Georgia and Alabama left on their SEC slate, and outright wins in both are definitely not out of the question.

    The big problem for Georgia in this spot is that Auburn's offense led by QB Jarrett Stidham will be able to move the ball well against a vaunted Georgia defense and put the pressure on the Bulldogs offense to respond. Being #1 means the Bulldogs have to be ready for everybody's best shot and although they were able to get a 24-10 win at home vs South Carolina last week, they failed to cover the -23.5 spread and Auburn is a much better team then what South Carolina brings to the table. Being on the road for the first time with that huge target on their backs will be something I'm not sure Georgia will be prepared for, and the offensive talent Auburn has means Georgia better be prepared to try and win a relative shootout.

    Early betting percentages listed at VegasInsider.com show about 65% of the action on both Georgia ML and ATS, while more than 80% is on the under. I'm going against the grain on both in this game as we've already seen this total move up a full two points since opening at 47 despite all that 'under' action – always a significant indicator to take note of – and with Auburn's offense averaging more than 200 yards per game on the ground AND through the air, points will be scored on both sides.

    Being at home is what helps sways this Auburn ML play even more as they are 7-1 ATS the last eight times they've been a home dog of 13 or less in SEC play, but I'm not even worried about the points. The Tigers have a history of pulling off big home upsets this time of year and this will be another one they get to add to the program's resume, setting up a huge Iron Bowl showdown with Alabama in a few weeks.

    Best Bet #2: Alabama/Mississippi State Over 52.5

    Similar to the Georgian/Auburn tilt, this Alabama/Mississippi State game has already seen the total jump up multiple points since opening despite a strong majority of total bettors going the other way. Now that it's November, the days of Alabama basically “picking their score” in wins is gone and although they've blown out Miss State the last two years (82-9 combined scores), this game should be tight for at least three quarters, with both sides letting their offense do the talking.

    Everyone knows how good Alabama's defense is, but they are starting to get banged up quite a bit; specifically at the LB position. Although the Crimson Tide have always had the “next man up” mentality under Nick Saban, there comes a point where too many injury problems will negatively affect a defense, and with a Bulldogs offense led by the mobile Nick Fitzgerald, this could be that week.

    Fitzgerald is a prototypical duel-threat QB in college football and as we've seen in recent history it's these types of QB's that tend to give Alabama problems. There was DeShaun Watson last year, Johnny Manziel a few years back, and even Cam Newton back when he was playing in college. Fitzgerald is cut from that same mold and while he is more of a runner first, his scrambling ability will create plenty of open lanes downfield to pass into when the Tide start chasing him around. With Mississippi State putting up 30+ in four straight weeks, asking them to get to 20+ against this tough Tide defense is more than reasonable.

    Furthermore, there is little doubt in my mind that Mississippi State brings their best effort to this one as they were almost caught looking ahead to this game a week ago. The Bulldogs sleepwalked through the majority of that game against a bad Umass team last week and typically when you see that you can expect that team to be more then ready when that big game arrives. For Mississippi State to pull off the upset they are going to have to turn this game into a shootout and that's precisely what we see.

    Finally, Alabama will be fine on offense as well as it's not like the Bulldogs defense is spectacular by any means. Comparable teams like Georgia and Auburn put up 31 and 49 points on Mississippi State already this year, and while those were both road games for the Bulldogs, Alabama should find a way to put up a similar tally. Alabama is 6-2 O/U in their last eight on the road against a team with a winning record at home, and 4-1 O/U after failing to cover the spread last time out.

    With the reverse line movement on the 'over' for this game, I've got no problem backing that side and expecting the final score to reach the 60's when all is said and done.

    Opening Line Report - Week 12
    November 13, 2017


    Wisconsin, still fighting for respect despite its 10-0 record, opened Sunday at the Wynn as a sizable nine-point home favorite against Michigan in next Saturday’s Big Ten clash in Madison (FOX, 12:00 p.m. ET), a number that drew immediate wiseguy interest on the underdog. Less than 10 minutes after opening college football lines were hung, Jim Harbaugh’s men had been bet down to +8.5, the number decreasing to +7.5 by Monday afternoon.

    Michigan has become a forgotten-about club. But the Wolverines are 8-2, their two losses coming at home vs. Michigan State and at Penn State, and they’ve scored 35, 33 and 35 in their three recent consecutive wins.

    Still, Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook oddsmaker Ed Salmons, whose shop opened Wisconsin -7.5 on Monday, said Sunday night that the opening line at the Wynn didn’t surprise him.

    “Wisconsin’s been so bad throwing the ball this year. The quarterback (Alex Hornibrook) is making so many mistakes, but Michigan’s going to struggle to score against Wisconsin,” Salmons said.

    Salmons encouraged handicappers to compare Iowa’s offensive performance in its 38-14 loss at Wisconsin this past Sunday to its 55-24 win vs. Ohio State the previous week. The Hawkeyes racked up 487 yards against the Buckeyes; the Badgers held them to 66 yards and five first downs, and Iowa’s two touchdowns came by way of interception returns.

    For the early bettors taking the points to cash this Saturday, Michigan will have to be nearly flawless on the road, Salmons believes.

    “Any mistakes Michigan makes like they did against Michigan State, they just can’t overcome it,” Salmons said. “Michigan has to play a clean game to cover that spread.”

    While CG Technology opened the game Wisconsin -8, vice president of risk Jason Simbal’s personal number was -9.5.

    Simbal said of the dog, “This will be their ‘let’s crush this team and kill their dream’ type of game, but I don’t see it. This is a good spot for Wisconsin.”

    UCLA at USC (-15.5) - (ABC, 8:00 p.m. ET)

    USC’s been bet up from the Wynn’s opener of -14.5 to -15.5, while multiple shops, including the Westgate, went higher at -16.

    “USC’s going to score a lot of points against that defense,” Salmons said.

    With a hint of exaggeration, he added, “USC should be good for 50, but with the way UCLA can score, they may backdoor and lose, 52-45.”

    While the early sharp money has been on USC, the point-spread may be too large for public bettors to resist.

    “I wouldn’t be surprised if people backed UCLA,” Simbal said.

    Salmons continued, “That total is going to be enormous. It’s hard to believe that Jim Mora can be the coach there that long and have a defense that just gets worse every year. I mean, this defense is an absolute joke.”

    Sure enough, offshore books are dealing 71 for the total.

    Worst schedule ever?

    After a Week 11 replete with playoff-influencing matchups, the Week 12 slate is less than compelling.

    Other than Michigan-Wisconsin, here are games involving teams in the playoff mix:

    -- Alabama hosts Mercer, a game that’s unlined so far.

    -- There’s also no point spread yet for Clemson’s home game against The Citadel.

    -- Oklahoma is a 35-point home favorite at one-win Kansas, not exactly a game with much betting appeal. “Nobody will touch that game, the number is going to be too crazy,” Simbal said.

    -- Miami’s been bet at the Wynn from -17 to -19.5 at home vs. Virginia. “I think everyone will be happy to lay that,” Simbal said.

    -- Auburn is laying 36.5 or 37 at home vs. Louisiana-Monroe.

    -- Early action at the Wynn showed on Kentucky +22 at Georgia, moving the line to as low as 21 before a northward nudge to 21.5.

    -- Sharps also took Navy +17.5 at Notre Dame, which has revenge in mind after losing at home to the Midshipmen last season. Navy, in fact, has covered the spread in three of last four years against its more heralded foe.

    -- Ohio State opened -38.5 at the Wynn vs. Illinois, but is being dealt as high as -40.5 around Las Vegas.

    In other words, if you’ve been invited to a wedding this fall, we hope the nuptials are this week!

    “This could be the worst schedule I’ve ever seen,” Salmons said. “There’s nothing, absolutely nothing. It almost looks like an NFL schedule.”

    NCAAF opening line report: Massive Michigan support moves line vs. Wisconsin
    Patrick Everson

    "The early bettors aren’t concerned that the Wolverines covered the number just once in their last 10 meetings versus the Badgers"

    Week 12 of the college football season is one of the weakest on the entire schedule, with arguably just one marquee matchup. But thanks to betting, you can always find a few noteworthy games. Patrick Everson checks in on the opening lines and early action, with insights from Dave Mason, brand manager for offshore sportsbook BetOnline.ag.

    No. 18 Michigan Wolverines at No. 4 Wisconsin Badgers (-8.5)

    Wisconsin continues to push toward what it hopes will be a berth in the four-team College Football Playoff, though it is not yet among the top four in those rankings. The Badgers (10-0 SU, 6-4 ATS) rumbled over upstart Iowa 38-14 as a 12.5-point home chalk in Week 11.

    Michigan has no CFP hopes at all, but could certainly play a giant spoiler this week. The Wolverines (8-2 SU, 4-5-1 ATS) have won three in a row (2-1 ATS), including Saturday’s 35-10 rout of Maryland as a 14.5-point road favorite.

    “So far, Michigan is the most popular bet on the entire college football betting board,” Mason said. “The early bettors aren’t concerned that the Wolverines covered the number just once in their last 10 meetings versus the Badgers, as 89 percent of bettors are taking the points. It’s down to 7.5.”

    Virginia Cavaliers at No. 2 Miami Hurricanes (-18)

    No one is doubting Miami’s credentials any longer. The Hurricanes (9-0 SU, 5-4 ATS) blew right through highly touted Notre Dame in Week 11, posting a 41-8 victory as a 3.5-point home underdog.

    Virginia is just hoping the ‘Canes have some kind of letdown after such a huge win. The Cavaliers (6-4 SU, 5-5 ATS) got out of the gate 5-1 SU and 4-2 ATS, but they’ve since lost three of four SU and ATS. On Saturday, Virginia went to Louisville as a 13.5-point ‘dog and fell 38-21 on Saturday.

    “Miami’s trouncing of Notre Dame was the biggest winner of the college football weekend for the house,” Mason said. “With the Hurricanes’ huge win in prime time, it’s surprising that early bettors prefer UVA. Only about 44 percent of the tickets are on the ‘Canes so far.”

    UCLA Bruins at No. 10 Southern California Trojans (-15)

    Southern Cal was among the preseason favorites to make a run at the national title, but that’s extremely unlikely now. However, the Trojans (9-2 SU, 3-7-1 ATS) have won three in a row and scored a lot of points since getting shellacked at Notre Dame. USC topped Colorado 38-24 in Week 11, pushing as a 14-point road fave.

    UCLA’s season is already up in flames, with a 5-5 SU and 3-7 ATS mark. The Bruins bested Arizona State 44-37 laying 3 points at home on Saturday.

    “Early bettors don’t seem too enthused with the battle for Los Angeles, as there are five times more bets on Michigan alone than both UCLA and USC combined,” Mason said. “Perhaps the action is a little slow so far (because) neither team has been generous to bettors this year. The early bet count is split 50/50.”

    Navy Midshipmen at No. 9 Notre Dame Fighting Irish (-18.5)

    Notre Dame was pretty much eliminated from the CFP in Week 11, and in downright embarrassing fashion to boot. As noted above, the Irish (8-2 SU, 7-3 ATS) went to Miami as a 3.5-point chalk and got boatraced 41-8.

    Navy (6-3 SU, 4-3-2 ATS) won its first five games, then lost three in row before righting the ship on Saturday. The Midshipmen held off Southern Methodist 43-40 giving 1.5 points at home.

    “Up until a couple of weeks ago, the public won a ton of money off of Notre Dame,” Mason said. “However, over the last two weeks, the house won big off of the Irish failing to cover versus Wake Forest and Miami. Bettors don’t seem to be so eager to bet Notre Dame, as 64 percent of the early bets are on the Midshipmen, moving them down to +17.5.”

    College football's biggest betting mismatches: Week 12
    Monty Andrews

    The Badgers largely control their fate from here on out, making this week's game against the inconsistent Wolverines a critical one in determining whether Wisconsin gets a shot at the national title.

    Michigan Wolverines at Wisconsin Badgers (-7.5, 41)

    Michigan's wonky O-line vs. Badgers' sack-happy defensive front

    Wisconsin has College Football Playoff visions in its head after remaining unbeaten following last week's 38-14 annihilation of the Iowa Hawkeyes. The Badgers largely control their fate from here on out, making this week's game against the inconsistent Wolverines a critical one in determining whether Wisconsin gets a shot at the national title. Making things easier is the fact that Wisconsin should have a considerable edge in line play when Michigan has the football.

    As good as the Wolverines have been on the defensive side of the ball - ranking fifth nationally with 3.3 sacks per game - they have done a terrible job of protecting their own quarterbacks. John O'Korn, Wilton Speight and Brandon Peters have been taken down a combined 27 times, for an average of 2.7 sacks against per game - ranking outside the top 100 in the country. Michigan already relies heavily on the run, and might have to increase that reliance even further this weekend.

    Wisconsin has made passing downs miserable for even the most potent offenses. The Badgers are tied for third among FBS schools in total sacks (35) and are fourth overall in sacks per game (3.5). And that relentless pass rush has done more than result in tackled quarterbacks - Wisconsin ranks seventh in the country in interceptions (15) and has returned four of those INTs for touchdowns; only Texas has more. Don't be surprised to see the Badgers hound the Wolverines on just about every Michigan pass play.

    TCU Horned Frogs at Texas Tech Red Raiders (+7.5, 58)

    TCU's red-zone stinginess vs. Texas Tech's downfield doldrums

    With its national title aspirations long gone following two losses in a three-game span, TCU remains focused on reaching the Big 12 championship game - and can do itself a significant favor in that regard with a win over host Texas Tech on Saturday. The Horned Frogs were humbled 38-20 by the Oklahoma Sooners, two weeks after suffering their first blemish of the season in a 14-7 defeat vs. Iowa State. But things are looking up this weekend, thanks to a sizeable edge in red-zone play.

    TCU's defense is one of the most formidable in all of Division I - and that's especially the case when it comes to keeping points off the board once the opponent has reached the Horned Frogs' 20-yard line. TCU has limited foes to 15 scoring plays (10 touchdowns, five field goals) in 22 red-zone visits, a 68.2-percent conversion rate that ranks third-best in the country. Only Wisconsin has allowed fewer than the four red-zone rushing scores the Horned Frogs have permitted so far.

    That bodes quite poorly for a Red Raiders offense that has visited the opposing red zone with regularity, but has frittered away a number of opportunities there. Texas Tech has 32 scores (27 touchdowns, five field goals) in a whopping 47 trips inside the opponent's 20 - a 68.1-percent success rate that ranks fifth-worst nationally. Trips to the red zone will be scarcer against TCU's vaunted defense - and if Texas Tech can't convert, they could find themselves on the wrong end of a rout.

    UCLA Bruins at USC Trojans (-16, 71.5)

    UCLA's beleaguered run D vs. USC's solid rush attack

    USC has locked up the Pac-12 South title but will be hunting for a spot in a premier bowl game as it wraps up regular-season play Saturday afternoon against rival UCLA. The Trojans come in on a three-game winning streak during which they have averaged an incredible 45 points per game - and they're a good bet to rack up the yardage and scoring in their season finale against a Bruins team that has struggled to stop the run for the majority of the season.

    By most metrics, UCLA has been among the worst run defense units in Division I; the Bruins are the only team in the nation allowing more than 300 rushing yards per game, and their 5.8 YPC against ranks second-last in the country, ahead of only Air Force. The lowlight of the season? Surrendering an obscene 457 rushing yards in a loss to the Arizona Wildcats on Oct. 14. No matter how good QB Josh Rosen is, if UCLA can't get its defensive house in order, it could be a long day Saturday.

    USC has done plenty of things well this season - and while QB Sam Darnold has garnered most of the headlines on the offensive side of the ball, the Trojans' running game has been impressive, as well. USC averages just over 200 rushing yards per contest - good for 35th nationally - while its 5.2 YPC average sits inside the top 20 among FBS schools. Darnold might not have to do much in this one, aside from handing the ball off to his running backs and letting them do the rest.

    Utah Utes at Washington Huskies (-17, 47)

    Utah's turnover troubles vs. Huskies' elite ball protection

    The Huskies saw their slim chances at a spot in the College Football Playoff washed away with last week's 30-22 setback at Stanford - but first place in the Pac-12 North is still in play - barely - as Washington hosts Utah. The Huskies need plenty of help to claim the division crown, but are in good position to do their part this weekend as a comfortable favorite against a Utes team that has dropped five of six. And when it comes to taking care of the football, these teams aren't in the same neighborhood.

    The Utes were already struggling with turnovers before this past weekend - but after coughing up the ball seven times in a 33-25 home loss to Washington State, Utah is now among the worst teams in Division I. The Utes are one of only six schools in the nation with double-digit interceptions (10) and fumbles lost (13), and only four other teams have more than Utah's 23 overall turnovers. Ball security will likely be a top priority at practice week - and if it isn't, it should be.

    The Huskies haven't been nearly as accommodating; they've turned the ball over just 10 times all season (five interceptions, five fumbles lost) and are one of just 23 Division I teams averaging no more than one turnover per game. Even in last Saturday's loss to the Cardinal, Washington turned the ball over just once. With the Huskies needing a win this weekend to keep their division title hopes alive, look for them to control the turnover game against a less-than-sure-handed Utah offense.
