Which two teams have the best chances of pulling off upsets this week? Let's overview the college football odds and see what we can come up with.

Florida Gators vs. Ole Miss Rebels
While it hasn't been pretty by any means, the Gators have found a way to push through and scrape out wins each week. They're still unbeaten on the season, with the most trying test coming last week in an unforgettable come-from-behind win over Tennessee.

It didn't look as if Florida had a chance, as they were down 13 points heading into the fourth quarter. But the Gators kept fighting and scored a stunning touchdown with only a couple minutes remaining, and from there they held on for the 28-27 victory to the delight of their fans. With the victory, Florida kept their spotless record alive and, as a result, have gotten love in the polls, now moving into #25.

A huge test awaits again this weekend, however, with big bad Ole Miss coming to town. The Rebels, ranked as high as number three nationally, have been storming through the competition, and they've already earned a statement win on the road over Alabama (43-37). This Saturday they find themselves favored by 6.5 points on the College Football Odds board, despite being on the road, with some sportsbooks offering up a number of 7.

While Ole Miss has obviously been very impressive early on this season, we love the never-give-up attitude and defensive intensity that the Gators have shown. They were able to keep Tennessee's dangerous in check for the most part, and that should serve as a good tune-up for this visit of the Rebels. 

With your college football picks, you could do worse than a small wager on Florida on the ML; with the Gator faithful behind them, we look for another highly competitive SEC game here.

College Football Pick: Florida Gators ML +220 (and +6.5)

Texas A&M Aggies vs. Mississippi State Bulldogs
Our next breakdown also comes in the SEC, with Texas A&M set to host the Bulldogs. The Aggies are a perfect 4-0 on the season, while Mississippi State has lost once, in a close battle against LSU.

When we look over the lines that sportsbooks have released, we find A&M favored by either 4 or 4.5 points, depending on where you look.

The Aggies opened the season with an emphatic win over Arizona State on a neutral field, and they've used that performance to set the tone over the last few weeks, as they've topped Ball State, Nevada and Arkansas. Kyle Allen has been doing an excellent job in command of the offense, with Tra Carson and Christian Kirk also contributing. As a team the Aggies are averaging 41 points per game, while surrendering 22 points a game on the other end of the field.

We've also seen some great things out of Mississippi State so far in 2015. They barely lost to LSU (21-19) but responded to that defeat crushing Northwestern State and then getting the better of Auburn (17-9) on the road in a great struggle. It's the Bulldogs' defensive displays that have been most impressive; they enter Saturday having allowed just 14.8 points a contest, which puts them 15th in the nation in that category.

This is going to be a difficult task for the Bulldogs, there's no doubt about that, but they've already proven they can hang on the road, having beaten Auburn, and they were right there with a chance of beating a top-notch LSU team too. With that in mind, we don't hate the idea at all of backing Mississippi State with our College Football Picks and hoping for the upset.

College Football Pick: Mississippi State Bulldogs ML +175 (and +4.5)
