It is time to get week 14 started around here, and we are starting things off with Phil Steele’s picks via the Behind the Bets podcast with Doug Keziriain.  His three official plays were Memphis, Ohio St and Texas, but he said he likes Alabama by more than two touchdowns when prompted by Doug.  Doug said he kinda likes Clemson and the Bama/Georgia over this week but hasn’t decided on his official play(s).

Week 13 2018: #CFB Picks w/ Phil Steele (and Doug Kezirian)!

Week 13 rolls along with Phil Steele’s picks via the Behind the Bets podcast with Doug Kezirian.  His five official picks were BYU, Texas A&M, TCU, Memphis and Virginia.  He explicitly agreed with Doug Kezirian about Michigan, Notre Dame, Miss State, and then said his computer projects the WVU/OU total around 92 so he likes the over.  I’m counting them all for the record.

As always I will be updating with any other picks Phil gives out on podcasts, radio shows, Phil Steele Plus preview, or anywhere else I find him.

Phil Steele on Behind the Bets:

Date Pick

11/24/18 Michigan  -4 vs Ohio State
11/24/18 Notre Dame  -10.5 vs Southern California

11/23/18 West Virginia vs Oklahoma Over 83.5
11/23/18 Virginia  -3.5 vs Virginia Tech
11/22/18 Mississippi State  -10.5 vs Mississippi

Doug Kezirian talked some games and said he’s definitely giving out Mississippi State-10.5 in the Egg bowl, but is deciding on his other official picks.  He said he likes Notre Dame-10.5, Michigan-4, and Kentucky but didn’t give a line.
