Week 11 CFB Betting Look-ahead: First look at Bama-Ole Miss + more (presented by Betfred Sportsbook)
Week 11 game lines are already here in College Football and it’s time to look at the early lines for the notable games this week.
No. 6 Alabama (-12) at No. 11 Ole Miss: This game lost some of its luster thanks to Alabama’s loss to LSU, but it still has huge ramifications for the SEC West. Whoever wins this needs help from LSU, but they are still in it. The matchup to watch will be how Ole Miss can run on Alabama. Alabama has one of the best rush defenses in the country, but Ole Miss has one of the best rushing offenses in the country, so that matchup will be huge here.
No. 7 TCU at No. 24 Texas (-6.5): TCU seems to be the class of the Big 12, but Texas has gotten back on track and could present a huge issue for the Horned Frogs, especially at home. The key will be if TCU falls behind here, can they come back? Texas has blown a few leads, but situationally this will be the hardest test yet for TCU. A night game in Austin will be one of the better environments that they have gone into all year. Expect this game to be one of the most entertaining of the weekend.
No. 25 UCF at No. 19 Tulane (-2): One of the biggest surprises in the country is Tulane and just how well they are playing right now. They’ve been winning with their great defense and have a big challenge this week against UCF. UCF has been winning with their offense and their rushing attack. The difference here might be the great atmosphere you’ll see in New Orleans for a big, meaningful home game in Tulane.
No. 17 North Carolina at No. 21 Wake Forest (-3.5): This showdown in North Carolina figures to be a very entertaining game. Expect a lot of offense in this game with two of the best quarterbacks in the ACC going head-to-head here in Drake Maye and Sam Hartmann. This game will most likely come down to who has the ball last or which defense can make a play first. Both teams might also be headed in opposite directions with Wake Forest faltering, while North Carolina seems to be surging.
No. 3 Georgia (-17) at Mississippi State: Georgia just got done cementing themselves as the #1 team in the country and this is just one of two remaining road games for the Bulldogs, so they could be tested here a bit. Mississippi State runs the air raid and Georgia has one of the best pass defenses in the country so that matchup will be pivotal for this game. Don’t be surprised if this game is closer than people think, especially with a night game in Starkville.
