Monday, November 7, 2016 3:28 PM GMT

Here’s a look at the opening lines for the Top 10 CFP teams for Week 11 of the college football season. 

 

Mississippi State vs. No. 1 Alabama (-29)

The Crimson Tide are playing their most points (-29) ever in the series following a hard-nosed 10-0 shutout victory over No. 19 LSU on Saturday. Will bettors see an encore performance from Alabama’s defense? Since head coach Nick Saban took charge, the Bulldogs average 9.3 points per game against.

 

Pitt at No. 2 Clemson (-18)

The line opened at -19, but slipped 1 point in early trading. This is the most points Pitt has seen on the board against an ACC opponent, last going off a double-digit underdog (+10) at Miami in 2014.

 

No. 3 Michigan (-18.5) at Iowa

The Wolverines were 4.5-point favorites in the Game of the Year lines released at the South Point Casino in Vegas back in May. It’s the first time the Hawkeyes have been spotted double digits in Iowa City in the matchup since getting 17 points in a 29-14 defeats back in 1994.

 

Ole Miss at No. 4 Texas A&M (-20)

Heritage sportsbook is hanging -20 points in favor of the Aggies, but other shops have the game off the board with quarterbacks Chad Kelly (knee) and Trevor Knight (shoulder) each in doubt. Ole Miss has covered all four matchups since the Aggies joined the SEC.

 

USC at No. 5 Washington (-10)

The Trojans are a road dog at Washington for the first time since 2001 where they covered the spread (+5.5) in a 27-24 defeat. The Huskies are 6-0 straight up against conference foes this season, sporting a 27.3 average margin of victory.

 

No. 6 Ohio State at Maryland (Off)

This game is off the board with Maryland quarterback Perry Hills’ status unknown after getting knocked out of the team’s 59-3 rout by Michigan last Saturday. The Buckeyes won the last two years by 28 and 21 points respectively.

 

Wake Forest at No. 7 Louisville (-31.5)

The line adjusted to -31.5 after an initial offering of -33 in favor of the Cardinals. Louisville has kicked off a 30-point favorite or more twice against ACC opponents, each coming this season against Duke (+34.5) and Virginia (+31.5). It failed to cover the spread by 24.5 points in each.

 

Illinois at No. 8 Wisconsin (-25.5)

Early adjustments went Illinois’ way after opening at -26.5 for the Badgers. It’s the largest spread in the last 30 meetings between the two Big Ten rivals.

 

No. 9 Auburn (-9.5) at Georgia

Georgia is a home underdog for the fourth time in the last 10 years when it hosts Auburn. The Tigers are favorites at Athens for the first time since 1995. The line opened at -8 with early money flowing in on Auburn.

 

No. 25 Baylor at No. 14 Oklahoma (-14.5)

Baylor is 7-1-1 against the spread in its last 9 trips at Oklahoma, all as the underdog. The Sooners opened as 16-point favorites with the line adjusting to -14.5 within hours of trading.
