Analyzing The Week 11 College Football Over/Under Picks: Trio of Chances To Cash In!
Minnesota Golden Gophers at Nebraska CornhuskersWhen: Saturday, November 12, 2016 at 7:30 PM ET
Where: Memorial Stadium
The Minnesota Golden Gophers (7-2 SU, 3-5-1 ATS) have won four straight games including their 44-31 shootout win over Purdue last weekend. Minnesota is averaging a healthy 32.1 points per game with quarterback Mitch Leidner completing 57.9 percent of his passes for 1,505 yards, with five touchdowns and six interceptions Minnesota is limiting the opposition to 22.1 points per contest defensively with Jonathan Celestin racking up a team-high 64 tackles.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers (7-2 SU, 5-3-1 ATS) have suffered consecutive road losses and come into this Week 11 matchup off humbling 62-3 blowout loss against Ohio State that saw starting quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. go down with a concussion. The Cornhuskers are averaging 32.0 points per game with their senior signal-caller completing 51.3 percent of his passes for 1,838 yards, with 11 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Defensively, Nebraska is allowing 23.2 points per game. While Nebraska’s Tommie Armstrong Jr. is questionable for this affair, I still like the Over for this Big Ten battle.
The Total is 3-0 in Minnesota’s last three games and 4-0 in their last four games following a straight-up (SU) win. While the under has gone 6-1 in Nebraska’s last seven games, the Over is also 5-0 in the Cornhuskers’ last five games following an SU loss and 7-2 in Minnesota’s last nine conference games. The Cornhuskers will be desperate to get back in the win column, but Minnesota is playing its best football of the season right now. I think both teams could top the 30-point plateau in this affair, making the Over the right pick here.

Ole Miss Rebels at Texas A&M AggiesWhen: Saturday, November 12, 2016 at 7:30 PM EET Where: Kyle Field TV: SEC Network Over/Under: 55 Analysis: The Texas A&M Aggies (7-2 SU, 4-5 ATS) will look to bounce back after suffering a stunning 35-28 loss against Mississippi State last weekend. The Aggies are averaging 37.2 points per game, but lost starting quarterback Trevor Knight for the remainder of the season after he was injured this past weekend. Defensively, the Aggies are limiting their opponents to 21.4 points per contest.
Ole Miss (4-5 SU, 3-6 ATS) snapped a three-game skid in their last contest by beating tiny Georgia Southern 37-27. The Rebels are putting up a healthy 36.1 points per game but lost quarterback Chad Kelly for the remainder of the season to a torn ACL. Defensively Ole Miss hasn’t been able to stop many of their opponents and is allowing a whopping 31.9 points per game.
With two new starting quarterbacks taking the field in this affair, the Under is the pick for me. The Under is 6-1-1 in the Aggies’ last seven home games against a team with a losing road record and 5-1 in their last six games in the month of November. Last but not least, the total has gone Under in 13 of Mississippi’s last 19 games and 10 of Texas A&M’s last 14 games.
Under 55 Total Points
Michigan Wolverines at Iowa HawkeyesWhen: Saturday, November 12, 2016 at 8:00 PM ET Where: Kinnick Stadium TV: ABC Over/Under: 50 Analysis: No. 2 Michigan (9-0 SU, 5-4 ATS) will look to remain unbeaten after pounding Maryland 59-3 last weekend. The Wolverines are averaging stellar 46.6 points per game behind blossoming quarterback Wilton Speight who is completing 64.5 percent of his passes for 2,053 yards with15 touchdowns and just three interceptions. Defensively, Michigan is limiting the opposition to a nation’s best 10.7 points per contest.
Iowa (5-4 SU, 3-6 ATS) has lost two straight and got routed by streaking Penn State 41-14 last weekend. The Hawkeyes are averaging 28.1 points per game with quarterback C.J. Beathard completing 59.9 percent of his passes for 1,584 yards with 13 touchdowns and five interceptions. Defensively, Iowa is limiting the opposition to 21.3 points per contest.
With the way Michigan is putting points on the board, combined with the awful football that Iowa is playing, I think a pick for the Over is in order for this Week 11 Big Ten battle. The total has gone Over in 15 of Michigan’s last 17 games and 6-0 in their last six road dates. The Over is also 6-0 in Iowa’s last six games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game and 11-2 in Michigan’s last 13 conference games.
