We are into November and while every game counts the same at the end of the year, this is where teams in college football have to make their push to realize their goals for the season.

After a slow start and a strong rebound, my college football picks were dumpster fire last week, leaving me with a still barely profitable 13-11-3 ATS record. Needless to say I want to quickly turn that around against the college football odds and get back on the winning track.


Top Rated Georgia Fails to Cover

In the first college football Playoff Poll, Georgia was ranked No.1 and there is no reason to think South Carolina will not get blown out by the Bulldogs and the sportsbooks odds reflect this. But it's November and in college football this where the unforeseen occurs, like episodes of American Horror stories. The Gamecocks are not outstanding on offense or defense, yet they have made plays to be 6-2 and are 4-0 ATS away. The Bulldogs by any measurable are one of the best two teams in the country and just flushed Florida and is at Auburn next, making one to wonder if they have A-game this week. Georgia has no real weaknesses, but if South Carolina can contain their running game, forcing QB Jake Fromm to be pocket passer, the visitor can cover. Also keep in mind the Dawgs are only 12-25 ATS at home after three or more consecutive straight up wins.

Central Florida Escapes Unbeaten, Just Not With Spread Winner

With South Florida losing, Central Florida is the lone team outside the Power 5 with shot at Super Six bowl. Coach Scott Frost is already the hottest coaching candidate for bigger job and he will have his hands full with rugged assignment at SMU. The Knights are the top scoring team in FBS at 51 PPG, nonetheless, the Mustangs come in at No.9 at 41.5 PPG and have big play offense. UFC does have large edge defensively, however, underdogs of 10.5 to 21 points like SMU, who have won four out of their last five games, with a win percentage of 60% to 80%, playing opponent with a winning record, are a sterling 30-5 ATS.

Michigan Mauls Minnesota

Michigan is just 3-5 ATS and has not impressed many all season long with mediocre quarterback play. That is less of an issue against Minnesota, who ranks 116th in passing offense. We know how good the Wolverines defense has been all season, ranked fourth in total defense and more than capable of grounding the Golden Gophers. Minnesota's run defense is pretty good (36th nationally), but if you have seen them play, stronger teams can overpower them or those with speed on the edges can outrun them on the corners. Michigan's running game can do both and wins this by 20 or more.
