We made a tidy profit during Week 12 of the college football season.

Thanks to a big win from Alabama, a gutsy cover from Rutgers, and a solid push from LSU, our picks went a solid 4-2-1 against spread last Saturday.

This week, we're back this week with seven more bets, and backing some heavy underdogs and a few wild favorites to keep the winning streak going.

Take a look below for our best bets of the Week 13 college football slate indicates home team .

LAST WEEK: 4-2-1OVERALL: 45-36-3Penn State 18.5 over Ohio State

The biggest game on Saturday's schedule is also the toughest one on the board to book. Ohio State is a powerhouse, quite possibly the best team in all of college football, and has steamrolled almost every challenger they've faced so far this season.

Penn State is a solid team and amongst the best in the country on their best day, and could be missing wide receiver KJ Hamler the most dangerous offensive weapon at their disposal. Knowing Ohio State, this game could be 21-0 before the first quarter is over. Knowing the Big Ten, this game could end as a 17-13 nail-biter.

Here's to hoping the Nittany Lions can at least find a way to keep things close.

Arkansas 43 over LSU

LSU is cruising through the season. However, this feels like a spot where the Tigers might take their foot off the gas a bit. Playing at home with a comfortable win all but assured, how long will Joe Burrow play before heading to the sideline?

The Razorbacks are not going to win this game, but if they can score twice, that might be enough to stay within the number.

Arizona State 14 over Oregon

Despite four straight losses, Arizona State proved they're more than capable of coming through in big spots as underdogs early in the year, and have given Oregon fits during trips played in Tempe, even beating the Ducks in 2017 when they were ranked No. 24 in the country.

Look for the Sun Devils to play up for this game as the team is still fighting for bowl eligibility.
