Betting Against the Spread: College Football 2014 Week 14 Picks

Happy Thanksgiving, college football fans. It's the best day and weekend of the sports calendar. According to me, at least.

 

It's also one of the toughest weeks to predict as historic rivalries dominate the landscape. Strange things happen in rivalry games, so none of my top picks are from traditional Power 5 Thanksgiving matchups.

 

Enjoy the holiday, be thankful and please don't burn your house down.

Thanksgiving is a great time to get gorged on turkey, pie and college football rivalry games.

The traditional fare of the Iron Bowl, Florida-Florida State and Ohio State-Michigan is worth watching, but this week is also time for some surprising traditional and non-traditional matchups.
