We are heading into the final few weeks of college football betting, which means the teams at the top of the rankings are starting to smell the sweet scent of playoff football. That said, a single slip up along the way might well be the difference between being in, or on the outside looking in. There are some big games to look forward to this coming weekend, all of which could play a role in divisional and national standings.
Auburn Tigers vs Georgia Bulldogs
One of the most eagerly anticipated games of the coming weekend has to be Auburn going on the road to face the Georgia Bulldogs between the hedges at Sanford Stadium. The Tigers are coming off a crushing loss to Texas A&M that may very well have killed their playoff aspirations, while Georgia bounced back nicely from a defeat to Florida that likely killed their hopes. Georgia need some help to win the SEC East and get in spot in the SEC Championship game, but they also need to help themselves by winning out. The good news for the Dawgs is that Todd Gurley will be back from suspension this weekend. This is a game that is sure to see a ton of betting action.
Mississippi State Bulldogs vs Alabama Crimson Tide
There can be no denying that the game of the week has to be top ranked Mississippi State heading into Alabama for an SEC West match-up that is perhaps the most important game of the season for both teams. A win for the Bulldogs will likely see them pretty much seal up the Division title, while Alabama, with their one loss, need this one to stay alive in both the Division and playoff races. Mississippi State have been dominant all year, while the Crimson Tide have had to work a little harder than they are used to in order to get where they are. That was highlighted perfectly with their weekend, come from behind win, against LSU in Death Valley. This is another that is sure to see a lot of play with bettors.

Mizzou Tigers vs Texas A&M Aggies
TV: SEC Network
Another potentially great game that should get some real play is once again taking place in the SEC. Georgia’s loss to Florida a couple of weeks ago opened the door for Missouri in the SEC East. They now control their own destiny, but will have to go through an Aggies team that is sure to be on a high after stunning Auburn over the weekend. QB Kenny Hill will be back after serving a 2-game suspension, but don’t expect him to get the nod over true freshman Kyle Allen who was lights out against the Tigers. Can’t wait to see what the line is going to be on this one.
TEXAS A&M: -5½-110
