There are five games between two ranked teams this week in college football betting, and all five games will decide their conference champions. This week’s action will shape the BCS bowl picture.
No. 1 LSU has seemingly already locked up a trip to the BCS National Championship Game, but the Tigers still need one more win over No. 12 Georgia to stay undefeated and win the SEC. Georgia has won 10 straight and is 8-2 ATS over that stretch, while LSU is 12-0 SU and 9-3 ATS on the year.
LSU is a 13-point favorite at Sportsbook at the Georgia Dome.
