Levi's Thanksgiving College Football Week 13 and NFL Week 12 Picks

Last week: 11-9 +3u (YTD: 56-43-2 +8.25u)

16 Iowa (+100) v. Nebraska, 11/26 12:30 PM CT

Without Adrian Martinez, the Huskers will turn to freshman Logan Smothers on Friday in a sellout atmosphere in Lincoln. If Minnesota can manage an upset against Wisconsin this week, the Hawkeyes will find themselves in the B1G title game with a win. Iowa doesn’t lose trophy games (except the Heartland), and I expect an experienced defense to take advantage of an inexperienced QB. Hawks by a milli.

9 Ole Miss @ Mississippi St (-2), 11/25, 6:30 PM CT

The home team has hoisted the Golden Egg in the last two Egg Bowls and I think that trend continues on Thanksgiving. Lane Kiffin’s name is circulating as Florida’s next head coach while Miss St. is a quiet 4-1 over its last five with two top-20 wins.

LV Raiders @ DAL Cowboys (Under 51.5), 11/25, 3:30 PM CT
Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, and Tyron Smith are likely unavailable for the Cowboys again this week and we saw what happened to Dallas without its top-2 playmakers and HOF tackle. The Raiders have one of the best pressure rates without blitzing which should translate into 3rd-and-longs. Take the under.

BUF Bills (-6) @ NO Saints, 11/25, 7:20 PM CT
This is a prove-it game for the Bills and I think we see a bounceback from Buffalo’s offense. Trevor Simien is not good enough to keep this close.
