Rivalry week in the college football world can be one of the toughest to handicap. When emotions are running high, weird things can happen.

There are some big favorites in Week 13, but you can guarantee that not every single one will cover. Not only that, but you can be assured that there will be a few massive upsets that nobody will see coming.

Let's take a look at the top three games that could be traps from a betting standpoint in rivalry week. All odds listed are via WynnBET.

College Football Week 13 Trap Games

  • Georgia vs. Georgia Tech +35
  • Alabama vs. Auburn +19
  • Arizona vs. Arizona State -20.5

Georgia vs. Georgia Tech +35

The battle of Georgia is set to take place this weekend, and while Georgia seems like a lock to win, don't think that this is automatically going to be a blowout. The Bulldogs are in an ultimate let down spot here. They've already locked up the SEC East and are the only guarantee to make the College Football Playoff. With nothing to play for and a virtual walk in the park game on Saturday, things could get weird.

Alabama vs. Auburn +19

Strange things always seem to happen when Alabama takes on Auburn in the Iron Bowl. The "Kick Six" comes to mind any time some one brings up the best moments in the history of the series.

What a lot of people may not remember about that game, is that Auburn was a 10-point underdog.

The Crimson Tide have allowed a few teams that aren't on their level to hang around with them this season. The only beat Florida by two points, LSU by six, and we all remember how they lost to Texas A&M 41-38.

Despite a few ugly losses by Auburn, don't sleep on the Tigers in this year's edition of the Iron Bowl.

Arizona vs. Arizona State -20.5

Arizona State enters the game with a 7-4 record on the year, while Arizona is an abysmal 1-10. That might make you think that the Sun Devils are going to run away with it, but don't be so quick to lay the number with them.

Arizona will be playing with reckless abandon with nothing left to lose this season and no bowl game to look forward to, and the Wildcats have have played a few tough opponents close this season, including losing by ranked Utah and BYU by fewer than 10 points.
