10 CFB Picks Against the Spread for Week 11
Georgia (+10.5) over Auburn
Auburn was sluggish offensively in a 23–16 win over Vanderbilt. Sean White is expected to start after missing the first half last week, but it’s not looking good for Kamryn Pettway, the SEC’s leading rusher.

Indiana (+7) over Penn State
Penn State has been on a roll in recent weeks, but Bloomington can be a tricky stop on the Big Ten tour. The Hoosiers are good enough offensively to make any team sweat.
Kentucky (+13.5) over Tennessee
Tennessee is seeking its first SEC win since beating Georgia on the Hail Mary. That was over a month ago. The Vols should get back on track — but it won’t be easy.
Arkansas (+7) over LSU
LSU has lost to Arkansas by 17 points in each of the last two seasons, and both games occurred the weak after a loss to Alabama. History will repeat itself … again.
Washington (-9) over USC
The Trojans have played very well of late, but keep in mind those wins have come against Arizona State, Colorado, Arizona, Cal and Oregon. Only one of those teams (Colorado) has a winning record in the Pac-12.
Stanford (-3) over Oregon
Christian McCaffrey has fallen out of the national conversation due in large part to Stanford’s struggles, but he is still leading the Pac-12 in rushing (122.5 ypg). The Cardinal’s passing game is non-existent, but a strong running game and decent defense should be enough to win in Eugene.
Oklahoma State (-12.5) over Texas Tech
The Red Raiders continue to struggle on defense — and that is being kind. They rank last in the Big 12 in scoring defense (41.8 ppg) and have given up an amazing 48 touchdowns in nine games.
Oklahoma (-16) over Baylor
Baylor’s last two games have not been a defensive clinic; the Bears gave up 548 yards to Texas and 688 to TCU. Oklahoma, which welcomes back Samaje Perine and Joe Mixon to the lineup, might rush for 500 yards.
Texas (-2) over West Virginia
Texas has won three of its last four and is now just one win away from becoming bowl eligible. Three of the Horns’ four losses have come by seven points or fewer. This is not a bad team.
Tulsa (-1.5) at Navy
This game likely will decide the AAC West Division crown. Tulsa is very quietly enjoying an outstanding season, with a 7–2 overall record and a 4–1 mark in the league. The Golden Hurricane are averaging more than 250 yards rushing and passing.
Last week: 5-5
