Thanksgiving week gives us an expanded college football weekend, with games on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. And that makes for an expanded weekend of college football betting. Below are our best NCAA Football Week 13 bets!
Mississippi (+1) at Mississippi State
Thanksgiving night, we are treated to the annual Egg Bowl and the high scoring that we are sure to see.
Bulldogs quarterback Will Rogers has been on fire. Two weeks ago, against Auburn, he threw for 415 yards and six touchdowns. Last week vs. Tennessee State had added another 391 yards and five touchdowns. He is clearly the right fit for Mike Leach’s air raid offense.
On the other side, we have Lane Kiffin and the Rebels riding a three-game winning streak. Quarterback Matt Corral doesn’t have the gaudy numbers that Rogers has, but his leadership qualities has him currently the first QB on the board for next year’s NFL draft.
He ripped his team after beating Vanderbilt by just two touchdowns and told his team that if they put forth a similar effort against Mississippi State, they will lose.
Corral, Kiffin, and the rest of Ole Miss get it together this week and manage to pull off the win.
Iowa (-1.5) at Nebraska
One of our early Friday games features a Big Ten clash between two teams going in opposite directions. Nebraska has lost five straight games, and they will not be eligible for a bowl game when the season ends. Seven of their eight losses have been by one score, but that is a small moral victory in a season of losses.
Meanwhile, Iowa has won three straight games, has been bowl eligible for a month and a half, and their defense ranks first in the nation with 22 interceptions.
Nebraska has been competitive, thus the small point spread. But Iowa is rolling, and their defense is simply too good. Take the Hawkeyes and lay the points.
Oregon State (+7) at Oregon
In each of the last two meetings, Oregon State covered the spread, including an outright win in 2020. But that game was in Corvallis, and we’re back in Eugene this year. Advantage, Ducks.
Oregon has won 11 of the last 13 meetings, and in 2017 they won by 59 points, and in 2018 they won by 40. Advantage, Ducks.
But this year’s Oregon team is not nearly as good as those. They lost at Stanford, were just demolished by Utah last week, and they’ve failed to cover seven times this year. Meanwhile, the Beavers are 7-4 against the spread, are coming off big wins against Stanford and Arizona State, and will do well enough against their rivals to cover another spread.
Take OSU and the points.
