Every week we scour the board to find the best money line, total, and ATS college football picks to get the sharpest numbers using the best online sportsbooks found right here at Bookmakers Review. Let’s see what we’ve got for Week 11 in the schoolboy ranks.
West Virginia Mountaineers vs. Kansas State Wildcats
Saturday, November 13, 2021 – 12:00 PM EST at Bill Snyder Family Football Stadium
Who wins – who loses – who cares?! Get out that limbo stick and go low, low, low in this one. As we peruse the college football odds at all of the best online sportsbooks, we see that the total, or over/under as the newbies say, is 47 across the board and that’s plenty of room to stay within the margins for these two squads.
The Mountaineers’ games have gone under in six of their nine contests this season, and last week they dropped a 24-3 decision to Oklahoma State, cruising way under the 49 total. This week they play a Kansas State squad that is averaging 28.3 points per game, a click below the 28.8 PPG average of the Cowboys.
Meanwhile, both of these defenses are better than most with West Virginia allowing 23 points per game while Kansas State is surrendering 21.6 points per contest. And while that would lead you to believe that the 47 total appears to be a solid number, the bottom line is that the Wildcats will be running the ball, chewing up the clock, and moving the sticks. West Virginia will be looking to pass the ball but the Cats have a solid secondary and a pass rush that should keep West Virginia quarterback, Jarret Doege, under pressure. Fly low in this one.
Purdue Boilermakers vs. Ohio State Buckeyes
Saturday, November 13, 2021 - 03:30 PM EST at Ohio Stadium
Purdue has two huge wins on their regular-season record as evidenced by their stunning 24-7 upset on the road of then No. 2 Iowa followed by a 40-29 home win over No. 3 Michigan State last week. But did anyone really expect the Spartans to hang in as a CFP entry?
Entering this matchup with the Buckeyes, the Boilermakers are 3-1 straight up and against the number over their last four contests with a 30-13 loss wedged in between against Wisconsin. This is a golden opportunity for the public to play sharp and bet the road pup here.
However, Ohio State can beat you on the ground or through the air while the Boilermakers lean heavily on the arm of quarterback Aidan O’Connell who shredded Michigan State’s secondary for over 500 yards last week. But against a defense, like the Buckeyes, that has 11 picks and 33 sacks on the season, they will be keying on the pass and that will be the Boilermakers' undoing because they don’t have a ground game – at all.
Purdue is ranked near the bottom of the barrel averaging only 77.1 rushing yards per game. Ohio State is ranked 16th in the nation against the run so forget about Purdue trying to shuffle the deck and fake the Buckeyes out with a heavy dose of running the rock.
The number is high on this game, I will grant you that, but this is a Buckeye blowout just waiting to happen and a revenge game from their 49-20 loss the last time these teams met. Lay the lumber on the home chalk and cash a ticket in this one!
Texas A&M Aggies vs. Ole Miss Rebels
Saturday, November 13, 2021 - 07:00 PM EST at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium
As long as the line has dipped below the all-important 3, we will take Ole Miss on the money line as a home dog and watch them win this one outright. As you know, Texas A&M has gotten plenty of love from their fans, and those who just loathe Alabama, after they pulled a stunning 41-38 upset of Nick Saban’s crew back on October 9th as 18 ½ point home dogs.
The Aggies have yet to lose since rattling off four consecutive wins and covering the number in all of them. That’s a tough team to fade, no doubt, but it’s not really about fading A&M as it is an endorsement of Ole Miss in this spot. The Rebels have 34 sacks on the season, tops in the nation, and an offense that is 4th in total yards, a rushing attack that ranks 5th, and 21st in passing. They are also at home and will be on fire in front of 65,000 rabid Rebels fans. Tell the bookie to take the deuce and give you the juice instead.
