Ole Miss (74) at Mississippi State (99)
The Egg Bowl is Thanksgiving night and it could be the last game for both coaches. Mississippi State has to win to get to a bowl. For Ole Miss, this is it, the season ends Thursday night.
Best Case for Ole Miss – Ole Miss wins 40-11
Best Case for Mississippi State – Mississippi State wins 45-15
Formulator Prediction – Mississippi State wins 34-20
How to Bet Ole Miss at Mississippi State – UNDER 58
Iowa (15) at Nebraska (78)
Nebraska is fighting for bowl eligibility Friday. I look for Scott Frost to go for broke in this game. A win year salvages a disappointing season with a win against a rival and he can get those extra practices a bowl game brings.
Best Case for Iowa – Iowa wins 39-9
Best Case for Nebraska – Nebraska wins 32-13
Formulator Prediction – Iowa wins 36-14
How to Bet Iowa at Nebraska – Iowa -3
Missouri (63) at Arkansas (125)
The Arkansas players are auditioning for their next coach in the season finale. For Mizzou on Friday, they’re trying to get bowl eligible and potentially save Barry Odom’s job.
Best Case for Missouri – Missouri wins 46-11
Best Case for Arkansas – Arkansas wins 33-19
Formulator Prediction – Missouri wins 40-15
How to Bet Missouri at Arkansas – Missouri -11.5.
Ohio State (1) at Michigan (5)
The biggest game of Jim Harbaugh’s career at Michigan. They have the momentum but Ohio State has been dominant this season. The Buckeyes have already won the division but their eyes are on the National Championship. The Wolverines will try to change that on Saturday.
Best Case for Ohio State – Ohio State wins 48-13
Best Case for Michigan – Michigan wins 34-22
Formulator Prediction – Ohio State wins 31-23
How to Bet Ohio State at Michigan – Bet the Wolverines +9. I think Michigan could win outright.
Wisconsin (6) at Minnesota (16)
The winner goes to the Big Ten Championship game. A win for Minnesota keeps hopes alive they could win their way into the College Football Playoff.
Best Case for Wisconsin – Wisconsin win 42-13
Best Case for Minnesota – Minnesota wins 38-18
Formulator Prediction – Wisconsin wins 40-14
How to Bet Wisconsin at Minnesota – Wisconsin -2.5. The Wisconsin defense makes the difference in this game.
Texas A&M (18) at LSU (2)
Best Case for Texas A&M – Texas A&M 39-24
Best Case for LSU – LSU wins 49-13
Formulator Prediction – LSU wins 45-19
How to Bet Texas A&M at LSU – Texas A&M +17. I don’t think LSU is going to be stepping on the gas with the SEC Championship looming. I think A&M keeps it close.
Alabama (3) at Auburn (12)
The Iron Bowl is without Tua and Alabama’s pending spot in the SEC Championship.
Best Case for Alabama – Alabama 41-11
Best Case for Auburn – Auburn 42-24
Formulator Prediction – Auburn 29-26
How to Bet Alabama at Auburn – Auburn +3.5. I see Auburn’s defense pressuring the Alabama offense and forcing this game down to a field goal.
Oklahoma (14) at Oklahoma State (26)
Bedlam! OU is headed to the Big 12 Championship game again but their in-state rival would love to end their hopes at the College Football Playoff with an upset.
Best Case for Oklahoma – Oklahoma 46-20
Best Case for Oklahoma State – Oklahoma State 40-25
Formulator Prediction – Oklahoma 38-28
How to Bet Oklahoma at Oklahoma State – Oklahoma State +13. Mike Gundy and the Cowboys are going to keep this a one score game. I think their running game can slow the game down.
Arizona (111) at Arizona State (53)
The Sun Devils secured a bowl birth with a big win last Saturday against Oregon. For U of A, this is their bowl game. Should be another great game in the Territorial Cup!
Best Case for Arizona – Arizona wins 37-19
Best Case for Arizona State – Arizona State wins 43-13
Formulator Prediction – Arizona State wins 34-22
How to Bet Arizona at Arizona State – UNDER 59.5.
