All occasions Eastern

Ole Miss at No. 2 Alabama (- 37.5) – 3:30 p.m. on CBS: This will be a dial-a-score game for Nick Saban, and they will dial up a major one on Saturday evening. Why? Since the surging assault truly hasn’t gave the equalization that they said the group required this late spring. Despite everything they will see a lot of Tua Tagovailoa through the air, however expect Damien Harris and the remainder of the running backs to get an overwhelming outstanding task at hand profound into the second from last quarter, have achievement and lead the Crimson Tide to a major success and spread. Pick: Alabama (- 37.5) – Barrett Sallee

No. 18 Virginia at No. 10 Notre Dame (- 11.5) – 3:30 p.m. on NBC: To be straightforward, I lean toward wagering the aggregate in this game than the spread, and they like the under. In case they are agreeing with a particular stance, they lean toward Virginia. The Cavaliers safeguard has made a stupendous showing of restricting blast plays from contradicting offenses, and lump plays are something the Irish offense has battled with against groups not named New Mexico. So while Notre Dame’s ability favorable position will probably win out at last, they think the Cavaliers are bound to keep this inside the number than not. Pick: Virginia (+11.5) – Tom Fornelli

No. 21 USC at No. 17 Washington (- 10.5) – 3:30 p.m. on Fox: Other than its climate deferred misfortune to Cal, Washington has taken care of its business. USC is hypothetically adequate to win this game, however on the off chance that Matt Fink is to be sure the quarterback, they don’t think he pulls off the profound tosses that they did against Utah. Furthermore, who recognizes what you’ll escape the Trojans out and about. Pick: Washington (- 10.5) – Ben Kercheval

Mississippi State at No. 10 Auburn (- 11.5) – 7 p.m. on ESPN: Auburn’s way of thinking is basic – run the ball, play guard and pick spots for Bo Nix to open things up only enough in the passing game to continue rival groups genuine. A similar arrangement will chip away at Saturday night. JaTarvious Whitlow will wear out a Bulldogs safeguard that needs profundity, enabling Nix to work off play-activity and lead the Tigers to a terrible yet proficient win and spread. It may be scrappy profound into the subsequent half, however the Tigers are simply a lot for these Bulldogs. Pick: Auburn (- 11.5) – Barrett Sallee

No. 5 Ohio State (- 17.5) at Nebraska – 7:30 p.m. on ABC: their real worry here is Nebraska’s barrier. The Cornhuskers are permitting 25.3 focuses per game on the season, yet in two games against Power Five challenge (Colorado and Illinois), they’ve permitted 72 points. That doesn’t look good for this matchup against an Ohio State offense falling off a 76-point execution. Likewise, while the Nebraska offense has demonstrated to be strong, it hasn’t confronted a safeguard close to the gauge of Ohio State’s yet. So they are not sure that the Cornhuskers will have the option to hang more than an hour here. they did lay the focuses with the Buckeyes. Pick: Ohio State (- 17.5) – Tom Fornelli
