The final week of the college football regular season is one of the best slates of the year, says the best sportsbook news, loaded with high-stakes contests and historic rivalry games.
If you’re betting on college football odds in Week 14, these are the biggest and bet bets on the board this Saturday.
Ohio State Buckeyes at Michigan Wolverines (+8.5)
The Buckeyes have locked in a spot in the Big Ten title game but can’t afford a slip up against old rival Michigan this weekend. Ohio State knocked off Penn State last week, but that explosive offense didn’t produce like many expected. The Buckeyes now face the fifth-ranked defense in the land when they travel to Ann Arbor.
The Wolverines are giving up only 268 yards and 16.2 points against per game, riding a four-game winning streak in which they’ve held all four foes to 14 points or less. Ohio State has had success in the Big House, covering in five of their last seven road games in Michigan.
Alabama Crimson Tide at Auburn Tigers (+4)
My, how the tide has turned in this classic SEC rivalry. Alabama is without star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who was lost for the season due to a hip injury two weeks ago. The Crimson Tide are on the outside of the playoff picture looking in right now and anything but a convincing win over their hated rival, Auburn, may not be enough to make the CFP cut.
The Tigers would relish an opportunity to knock Alabama out of playoff contention and improve their standing for a New Year’s Day bowl. Auburn won’t get a playoff nod but has the 14th-ranked defense in the country and will lean on that stop unit to slow down a Crimson Tide attack searching for answers. The Tigers have covered in five of their previous seven home stands with Bama in the Iron Bowl.
Oklahoma Sooners at Oklahoma State Cowboys (+12)
Oklahoma is a big favorite in the latest edition of Bedlam, giving a dozen points to the host Oklahoma State Cowboys Saturday. The Sooners are still pushing for a spot in the CFP Final Four, with only one loss on the season and a Big 12 title game remaining after this dust up in Stillwater. Jalen Hurts is coming off one of his worst showings of the season in a near loss to TCU and faces a Pokes stop unit that has held its last two opponents to 13 points each.
Oklahoma State is without quarterback Spencer Sanders for the remainder of the season after he suffered a thumb injury versus Kansas two weeks ago. Dru Brown got the start under center in the win over West Virginia in Week 13, passing for 196 yards and two touchdowns. The Cowboys appear to be outgunned against Oklahoma, which averages more than 45 points per game. The Sooners have covered in 10 of their last 14 rivalry meetings with Oklahoma State.
