The 2013 college football season quickly moves into Week 13, as sports handicappers continue to adjust their numbers to beat the odds and win.

Let’s take a closer look at six games in the next round of action, while examining other college football odds being offered in the marketplace.

Opening number at Bookmaker sportsbook is represented in parentheses (Road team vs. Home team)

Wisconsin Badgers -15 (-14.5) vs. Minnesota Golden Gophers

Wisconsin’s last 11 wins have come by a double-digit margin, while Minnesota is off to its best start since the 2003 campaign.

Sports bettors will find that the Badgers are 2-0 SUATS as road favorites this season.


Vanderbilt Commodores vs. Tennessee Volunteers -3 (-2.5)

Vanderbilt has totaled 18 takeaways in its last four games, while Tennessee allowed 444 rushing yards to Auburn in a 55-23 setback as 7.5-point home underdogs on Nov. 9.

In its last 12 opportunities, the Volunteers are 4-7-1 ATS as home favorites of three or fewer points.


Arizona State Sun Devils -2.5 (-2) vs. UCLA Bruins

Arizona State has scored first in 19 of its 23 games under head coach Todd Graham, while UCLA has compiled a perfect 9-0 record at home when putting the first points on the scoreboard during the Jim Mora era.

College football handicappers will find that the Sun Devils are 5-2 SU and 4-3 ATS as road favorites since 2011.


BYU Cougars -1 (+1) vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

BYU rushed for 421 yards last week, while Notre Dame looks to improve upon its 11-2 SU record in November under head coach Brian Kelly.

The Fighting Irish are 1-3 SUATS as home underdogs of three or fewer points in their last four opportunities.


Baylor Bears -8.5 (-10.5) vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys

Baylor has won nine straight Big 12 Conference games, while Oklahoma State has gone 8-3 SU in its last 11 affairs versus ranked opponents.

Over the last two-plus seasons, the Cowboys are 16-1 SU and 13-4 ATS at home, with the OVER going 9-7-1 in that situation.


Oklahoma Sooners vs. Kansas State Wildcats -3.5 (-4)

Oklahoma ran for 405 rushing yards last week, which happens to be the most during the Bob Stoops era, while Kansas State picked up its 38th consecutive victory when leading at the break with its win over TCU.

The Sooners are 0-3 SU/ATS as underdogs the last two-plus seasons, with each of those affairs going UNDER the betting total. Given these trends, which team should we back for our college football picks in this situation?
