Here are my weekly college football picks this weekend. 

And below are OddsShark's NFL and College Football picks. 

The latest edition of the 2016 College Football Playoff rankings show the Washington Huskies sneaking into the Final Four field as the replacement for the Michigan Wolverines, who lost an epic double-overtime game to the Ohio State Buckeyes 30-27 last Saturday.

The biggest benefactors of that result other than the Huskies were the Penn State Nittany Lions, as they will now get to play the Wisconsin Badgers in the Big Ten Championship Game. But does Penn State have any shot to get into the CFP with another upset victory?

Florida vs. Alabama (-24) (Sat, 4 p.m. ET) – Matchup Report

The top-ranked Crimson Tide have absolutely nothing to play for in this spot except to lock up the No. 1 seed in the CFP and add another SEC title to their trophy case. As the biggest favorite on the betting board in Week 14 at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com, the big and maybe only question bettors need to ask is, will Alabama beat the extra-large number? The Gators will not win this championship game, but they will find a way to cover as massive underdogs.

Virginia Tech vs. Clemson (-10) (Sat, 8 p.m. ET) – Matchup Report

The Tigers would love nothing more than a national championship rematch with the Tide and cannot afford to slip up here in any way. That means failing to cover the spread in a weak year for the ACC, so expect Clemson to play like last week against South Carolina and rout the Hokies. Deshaun Watson may even make a late push for the Heisman Trophy with Lamar Jackson struggling in losing two straight to close out his campaign for the Louisville Cardinals.

Penn State vs. Wisconsin (-2.5) (Sat, 8 p.m. ET) – Matchup Report

Over in the NFL, Week 13 sees the league's two worst teams from a year ago on byes, with one of them still winless this season in the Cleveland Browns (0-12). While the Browns have virtually locked up the top overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, four more teams are fighting (or not) for the second selection. They include the San Francisco 49ers (1-10), Chicago Bears (2-9), Jacksonville Jaguars (2-9) and New York Jets (3-8), who wrap up the week by hosting the Indianapolis Colts (5-6) on Monday Night Football. Find out which of them have a shot to win and/or cover the spread...

Broncos (-4) at Jaguars (Sun, 1 p.m. ET) – Matchup Report

Denver (7-4) will be primed to bounce back after Sunday night's disappointing overtime loss at home to the Kansas City Chiefs. While it may seem to be difficult to get up for an opponent like Jacksonville, Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak used to face them twice a year when he was with the Houston Texans. Denver has won 10 of its last 13 games straight up on the road versus teams under .500, and this is a matchup with a small enough spread to cover easily.

49ers at Bears (-1) (Sun, 1 p.m. ET) – Matchup Report

San Francisco is 12-4 against the spread in the past 16 meetings with Chicago, according to the OddsShark NFL Database. The Bears are also just 4-11 ATS in their last 15 home games against teams with losing records, and they desperately need a Top 3 pick to help re-build the franchise. Chicago head coach John Fox is not known for tanking, but it is a wise move now.

Colts (-1.5) at Jets (Mon, 8:30 p.m. ET) – Matchup Report

It is hard to believe that this New York team is performing so poorly with the amount of talented players on the roster, especially the defense. Despite the Jets residing in the basement of the AFC East with no shot at the playoffs this year, they should be able to win this game at home against an Indianapolis squad that hopes to have quarterback Andrew Luck back under center after missing last week due to a concussion. With Luck or without him, the Colts are only 2-7 ATS in the previous nine meetings with New York and will lose in a minor upset.
