College Football Betting Trends

Following the craziest week yet this season that saw three of the top four teams in the country lose straight up, the defending national champion Alabama Crimson Tide (10-0) find themselves as the only major unbeaten standing. The Western Michigan Broncos (10-0) are also undefeated but have virtually no shot of making the CFP field as a MAC school. With Alabama hosting the Tennessee-Chattanooga Mocs in Week 12 and a virtual lock to make the CFP, several one-loss teams will keep fighting for the other three spots.

The Ohio State Buckeyes (9-1) and Michigan Wolverines (9-1) will meet in their annual rivalry game on November 26, and the winner is expected to earn one of the CFP spots assuming that team does not lose this Saturday or in the Big Ten Championship Game.

Ohio State visits the Michigan State Spartans (3-7) as 21.5-point favorites at sportsbooks monitored by, and the road team has covered the spread in each of the past seven meetings. Meanwhile, Michigan hosts the Indiana Hoosiers (5-5) as 26-point chalk and has won 15 consecutive games in the series. Both teams will likely roll.
