College Football Picks For Saturday November 10

The Don Best expert panel has cut seven games from the herd for some quick previews and picks on the Week 11 college football betting slate.
A couple of key contests in the Big Ten could help decide the Legends Division race, or leave it even more jumbled. Northwestern is a game behind the Michigan Wolverines, who are 10½-point home favorites vs. the Wildcats (click to check updated college football odds). Michigan is presently tied with Nebraska in the Legends standings, and the Cornhuskers are touchdown favorites in Lincoln against the visiting Penn State Nittany Lions.
Louisville takes its perfect 9-0 record on the road to the Carrier Dome, where the Cardinals are slight 2½-point favorites over the Syracuse Orange. Saturday's total is presently sitting at 58, and six of the last eight meetings in this series have remained below the number.
Out in the Pac-12, USC looks to keep its conference championship game hopes alive when the Trojans host the Arizona State Sun Devils. Southern Cal opened as an 11-point favorite on the Don Best odds screen, but that spread has dropped to 9½ while the total has increased to 65½.
The highest total of the week can once again be found in the Big 12 where West Virginia travels to meet the Oklahoma State Cowboys. Bettors are looking at a 79-point scoreboard figure for the contest which finds OSU favored by 7½-8 points.
Two SEC squads coming off stinging losses meet in Baton Rouge where LSU backers will be laying two touchdowns to the Mississippi State Bulldogs.
Saturday's slate concludes with a crucial Mountain West clash in Reno where the Nevada Wolf Pack look to stop a two-game losing streak as 3-point underdogs vs. Fresno State. Four of the last six meetings at Mackay Stadium have jumped the total, which is 68½-69 for this year's battle.
