Picks ATS for Week 13

Sadly, we’ve reached the final week of the regular season. Thankfully, it’s got the makings of an epic weekend of games as teams fight for bowl eligibility, conference titles and College Football Playoff spots.

I’ve been on a pretty good run over the last three weeks with my picks, going 15-10-1. I was 5-1 with my first six picks last week, but lost both of the sides I had in the night games to drop to 5-3 for the weekend.

I’ve had a few disastrous weeks this year, but am inching closer to .500. If I can get there before conference championship weekend, I’ll be thrilled. And to get there, I have to go pretty heavy with the volume of picks.

Time: 1 p.m. (Friday) | Line: USU -15.5 | Total: 49.5

There are very few situations where I would trust Utah State as a two-touchdown favorite, but this is one of them. The Aggies are coming off an ugly loss to Wyoming last weekend but can still win the Mountain West’s Mountain division. At 8-3 overall and 5-2 in conference play, USU has been a big surprise in Blake Anderson’s first season. A trip to the MWC title game would be a big…
