Week 14 of college football season will not only decide the championship team for 2017 in a number of conferences, it will set the final field for this year’s College Football Playoff in advance of the 2017 CFP National Championship Game. The current betting odds point to a number of great showdowns on this Saturday’s slate. 

The following is a brief breakdown of some of the most important stats, facts and recent trends for trio of Saturday’s biggest conference title showdowns when it comes to betting on the games with the help of SBR's college football betting odds page.

Georgia Bulldogs vs. Auburn Tigers (-3)

The first time that Georgia faced Auburn this season things did not go as planned in a stunning 40-17 loss as a 2.5-point road favorite. This was the Bulldogs’ only straight-up loss of the season against 11 wins and they were 8-4 against the spread. This Saturday’s SEC title game will be played in Atlanta and Georgia has gone 4-1 ATS in its last five neutral-site games. The total has stayed UNDER in five of its last seven games at a neutral site.

The Tigers are flying high following Saturday’s 26-14 upset over Alabama as five-point home underdogs. They are now 10-2 SU on the year with a 5-4-3 record ATS. The total has stayed UNDER in their last two games after going OVER in their previous seven outings. Auburn is an even 3-3-3 this season when closing as a favorite. Even with that earlier victory against Georgia on Nov. 11, the Tigers are just 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings. The total stayed UNDER in five of those seven games.

Ohio State Buckeyes (-6) vs. Wisconsin Badgers

The Buckeyes won the Big Ten East Division at 8-1 SU as part of their 10-2 record overall. They failed to cover in four of their last five games to fall to 5-7 ATS and the total went OVER in nine of their 12 games. Ohio State is still haunted by that 55-24 loss to Iowa on Nov. 4 as a heavy 20.5-point road favorite so even with a SU win this Saturday night there is no guarantee it will earn a spot in the four-team College Football Playoff.

Wisconsin completed a perfect 12-0 SU run through the regular season while going 9-0 in conference play with Saturday’s 31-0 shutout of Minnesota as an 18-point road favorite. The Badgers were able to cover in five of their last six games to post an 8-4 record ATS. The total stayed UNDER 43 points in Saturday’s win and it has stayed UNDER in three of their last five games. The Buckeyes have won the last five meetings in this Big Ten inter-division clash with a 4-1 edge ATS. The total has gone OVER in four of the last six meetings.

Miami Hurricanes vs. Clemson Tigers (-9)

Miami controlled its own destiny this season right up until last Friday’s unexplainable 24-14 loss to Pittsburgh as a 12-point road favorite. Looking past that game cost the Hurricanes a perfect season at 10-1 and the loss dropped their record ATS to 5-6. They have now failed to cover in five of their last seven games. The total stayed UNDER 53 points in that stunning defeat and it has stayed UNDER in nine of 11 games this season.

Clemson has just one blemish in its 7-1 SU record in the ACC this season as part of its 11-1 record overall. With a lopsided 34-10 victory on the road against bitter rival South Carolina this past Saturday as 13.5-point favorites, the Tigers posted a 3-1-1 record ATS in their last five games. Overall, they went 7-4-1 ATS with the total staying UNDER in seven of the 12 games. They come into this ACC title game with a 4-1 edge ATS in their last five games against Miami. The total went OVER in four of those games.
