College Football Week 14 Lines
It’s conference title game time in college football with league championships and bowl placements on the line.
After an amazing comeback win over Alabama last Friday, No. 2 Auburn will try to stay perfect on the year in the SEC title game against No. 18 South Carolina. The line is shrinking; SportsBetting.ag and Bovada both opened at five points for Auburn but have since changed it to 4.5.
Is that a steal for bettors? If the Tigers can overcome a 27-0 deficit at Alabama, they have to have a great shot against South Carolina.

Can South Carolina do what Alabama couldn’t – stop Cam Newton? The Auburn star quarterback and Heisman Trophy hopeful accounted for all four touchdowns against the Crimson Tide (three passing, one rushing) last week.
South Carolina has some offensive weapons for Auburn to worry about, though; Marcus Lattimore averages 101.3 rushing yards per game with 19 total touchdowns this season.
No. 22 Florida State finally ended its misery against Florida last week and will be rewarded with a trip to the ACC title game against No. 12 Virginia Tech. The Hokies have won 10 straight since dropping their first two games this season.
They’re as hot as any team in the country, so it’s no surprise to see them favored by four points. The common over/under is 52 points at books like BookMaker right now.
The Hokies hammered Virginia 37-7 last week. During their dominant 10-game run, they have scored at least 31 points seven times. With respect to Florida State, picking Virginia Tech to cover only four points feels like a steal right now.
No. 10 Oklahoma squeaked into the Big 12 title game on a BCS standings tiebreaker and will face 13th-ranked Nebraska. BookMaker has Oklahoma favored by 3.5 points, with the total at 54.5.
Oklahoma brings a powerhouse aerial attack to the table, ranking fourth in the nation with 336.3 passing yards per game. Landry Jones has been a force under center, completing 66 per cent of his passes for 3,947 yards and 34 touchdowns versus 10 interceptions.

Nebraska’s bread and butter is the running game, which averages 269.2 yards per contest. But the Cornhuskers could very well be without their starting quarterback, as Taylor Martinez’s ankle injury could keep him out. Though he struggled at times down the stretch, he is still a big part of Nebraska’s offense.
Normally, Nebraska would look like a solid play as a 3.5-point underdog; it can match Mississippi more or less offensively and has a far superior defense. But Martinez’s injury could throw the Cornhuskers out of whack. The safer bet looks like Oklahoma, but bettors should monitor Martinez’s status closely and consider waiting until closer to game time to make their wagers.
