College Football Betting Week 13 Odds and Picks

While everyone in Tuscaloosa prays for a third-straight BCS Championship game berth, the rest of the country will be hoping for BCS chaos in the final weekend of the college football betting season. Last week’s shakeup aligned the undefeated and top-ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide to meet in this year’s national title game, but all bets are off heading in to this Saturday’s action.

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets @ #3 Georgia Bulldogs (-13)

Saturday, 12:00 PM ET

The one-loss Bulldogs have somewhat flown under the football betting radar this season, but they could be the heir apparent to the BCS Championship game throne should Alabama somehow stumble this weekend. The more likely scenario is that Georgia covers the spread again this weekend, then get their shot at the Tide in the SEC Championship game on December 1st to determine which team goes to Miami.

College Football Betting Pick: Georgia Bulldogs -13

#5 Oregon Ducks @ #15 Oregon State Beavers

Saturday, 3:00 PM ET

The Ducks’ high-powered offense was finally grounded against the top-ranked run defense in the country last weekend at Stanford, and won’t have an easy time getting back on track against a stingy Beavers’ stop-unit. Oregon still leads the nation in points per game with 54.8 thanks in large part to that fifth-ranked rushing attack, and if senior running back Kenjon Barner can get back on track this weekend the Ducks will keep their slim national title hopes alive with a Betonline win in the Civil War.

College Football Betting Pick: Oregon Ducks – 9.5

Auburn Tigers @ #2 Alabama Crimson Tide (-31)

Saturday, 3:30 PM ET

The public has already knocked three points off of the spread for this game, but 31 points may not be enough to help Auburn in this year’s Iron Bowl. The Tigers are on the verge of being swept in SEC play, and with so much on the line for an Alabama team that gets its shot at redemption with a second chance on the national stage, this game shouldn’t be close. The Tide are still the sports betting favorites to repeat as national champions, so don’t expect another letdown after a surprising stumble earlier in the season.

#1 Notre Dame Fighting Irish @ USC Trojans

Saturday, 8:00 PM ET

How ironic it is that the nation’s top-ranked team plays its final game of the season at the Coliseum and it’s not USC. The preseason favorites are all that stands in Notre Dame’s way of a perfect season and BCS Championship game berth, and while it won’t be easy, the Fighting Irish have already overcome a schedule most experts projected they would struggle with this year. Add to that the fact that Lane Kiffin could take an early look at the players projected to play significant roles on next year’s team rather than going with seniors including quarterback Matt Barkley, and Notre Dame should be fine.
