2019 College Football Week 11 Odds, Overview & Expert Picks
Louisiana State University Tigers @ Alabama Crimson Tide (-6.5)Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, Alabama will play host to this season’s biggest game, as the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide will host the second-ranked LSU Tigers. Tua Tagovailoa will be a game-time decision, so as of now, the Tide will be led by Mac Jones. Jones has fared well as Tua’s replacement, but he hasn’t played the level of competition that LSU will bring.
This isn’t the LSU ground and pound game of old. Ed Orgeron has modernized LSU’s offense, and Joe Burrow has done a great job of leading the new offense. The LSU defense will give Alabama’s offense a tough time on Saturday.
This game is basically the divisional championship. However, the loser still has a great shot at a college football playoff spot. This should be a good one! With or without Tua, Alabama will have the edge. They’ll win this one, but won’t cover the spread.
Penn State Nittany Lions (-6.5) @ Minnesota Golden GophersBoth of these teams are undefeated heading into Saturday’s matchup. Minnesota’s offense has been averaging over 38 points per game, but the Gophers have yet to face an opponent as tough as Penn State.This is a huge game for Minnesota. They have a two game lead over Iowa and Wisconsin in the Big 10 West, and they want it to stay that way.
Penn State knows that they need this victory to keep pace with Ohio State in the Big Ten East. They really want to go into the showdown with the Buckeyes undefeated.
It’s been a great run for the Gophers and PJ Fleck, but this is where the undefeated road ends. Penn State will be too much for the Gophers and will win by 10 points.
Iowa Hawkeyes at Wisconsin Badgers (-9)Just three weeks ago, many were looking at the Wisconsin Badgers as one of the top teams in the country. After a loss to Illinois, and then a thrashing at the hands of the Ohio State Buckeyes, the Wisconsin love has gone away.
The Hawkeyes have one of the nation’s top defenses, and has won two in a row. The Hawkeyes always seem to show up in big games. If they can get any offense at all, they’ll be able to challenge the Badgers.
This one will come down to the wire. Iowa will make a late field goal to take the victory.
