Florida vs. Vanderbilt (+26.5), Clemson vs. North Carolina State (+32), Connecticut vs. Cincinnati (-35) and East Carolina vs. SMU (-21.5) also all feature lopsided college football spreads. Whether you’re searching for value in a game like one of those or trying to make the call on a tight matchup like LSU vs. Alabama (-6.5) or USC vs. Arizona State (-1.5), getting unbiased college football expert picks can go a long way. Before locking in any plays, be sure to see the Week 11 college football best bets and top college football predictions from SportsLine’s Barrett Sallee.

Sallee is a true insider — a CBS Sports analyst, SiriusXM host, Heisman voter and consistently one of the top CBS Sports experts picking games against the spread — and his best bets have helped bring in huge returns. He debuted with SportsLine in 2017 and has delivered in a big way, posting a winning record in his weekly college football best bets column since that point. He got 2019 off to a blistering start as well, going a stunning 20-9-1 in his best bets thus far. Anybody who has been following him is way up.

Now, he has turned his attention to Week 11 and is sharing his most confident college football expert picks over at SportsLine. We can tell you Sallee is picking Louisville (+6.5) to stay within the spread at Miami.

Sallee knows Louisville will enter Saturday’s ACC matchup full of confidence after earning a 28-21 victory over Virginia last week. The Cardinals’ offense has turned it up a notch in recent games, averaging over 35 points in their last four contests. Miami, meanwhile, limps into this matchup having lost two of its last three games at home.

“The Cardinals, off a strong defensive performance in a win over Virginia (311 yards), have had two weeks to prepare for an average Miami offense coming off an emotional win over rival Florida State,” Sallee told SportsLine. “Do you trust Miami’s offensive line against anybody? I don’t. This will be a defensive slugfest that will come down to the wire.”

Sallee has also found two other college football picks he’s high on, including a must-see underdog that isn’t getting nearly enough credit in Week 11. You can only see who he’s backing at SportsLine.
