College football odds, picks, predictions, best bets for Week 13: Proven model backs Army, Tennessee

The Clemson Tigers will try to make a statement to the College Football Playoff committee when they face the South Carolina Gamecocks on Saturday afternoon. Clemson has bounced back from a loss to Notre Dame with consecutive wins over Louisville and Miami (FL). The Tigers beat the Hurricanes by 30 points last week, but they should get a stiffer test during the Week 13 college football schedule. South Carolina knocked Tennessee out of the College Football Playoff discussion last week, springing an upset as a 22.5-point home underdog.

Clemson is a 14.5-point favorite in the latest Week 13 college football odds at Caesars Sportsbook. Elsewhere, no. 2 Ohio State is a 7.5-point favorite against No. 3 Michigan in the Week 13 college football lines. Before making any Week 13 college football picks on those games or others, be sure to see the latest college football predictions from SportsLine’s advanced computer model.

Top college football predictions for Week 13

One of the college picks the model is high on in Week 13: Army (-20) covers at UMass in a noon ET kickoff on Saturday. The Black Knights suffered a disappointing two-game losing skid earlier this month, but they responded with an impressive showing against UConn last week. They covered the 10-point spread in their 34-17 win over the Huskies, who had won five of their previous six games entering that contest. Army now has a chance to become bowl eligible with a win in this game and a win against Navy next month.

UMass is the perfect opponent for Army to pick up an easy win against, as the Minutemen are riding an eight-game losing streak. They have only stayed within single digits twice during that stretch, and five of their losses have come by at least 17 points. Army’s rushing attack will be too much for UMass to handle, which is why the model has the Black Knights covering in over 60% of simulations.

Another one of the Week 13 college football picks from the model: Tennessee (-13.5) easily covers in its rivalry game at Vanderbilt on Saturday night. This spread has seen a drastic dip over the past two weeks, as the Vols lost their star quarterback to a season-ending injury and Vanderbilt notched a pair of surprising upset wins. Those two factors have created some value on Tennessee, which still has a very good backup quarterback and the top offense in the country.

Joe Milton, who is taking over for the injured Hendon Hooker, has thrown for 573 yards, six touchdowns and zero interceptions so far this season. Tennessee has a pair of running backs who have gone over 600 rushing yards, and Milton has added seven carries for 72 yards. The model expects the Vols to rush for more than 200 yards, which is one reason why they are covering the spread well over 60% of the time. See which other teams the model likes here.
