Early College Football Week 12 Bets To Place
The regular season is inching toward an end, and just one regular week of college football will be left once Week 12 comes and goes. It’s time to take advantage of one of the last full slates of the year.
Let’s take a look at the early odds for Week 12 and which bets are worth locking in right now.
Michigan (-19.5) vs. Maryland
Michigan’s closest win was a 24-point margin this season. While that might change against Penn State, any win in State College will have the Wolverines looking strong heading into a matchup with flailing Maryland regardless of who the head coach might be.
The Terrapins have been a mess since their strong start to the season, losing to Illinois and Northwestern before taking a 36-point loss to Penn State at home. Needless to say, a 36-point loss to the Nittany Lions is an indication home-field advantage won’t matter much for Maryland when Michigan comes to town.
The Terrapins face a pesky, defense-first Nebraska team in Lincoln this weekend in what could be another trap for Mike Locksley’s team. Any struggles against Nebraska could help push this line past three touchdowns in favor of Michigan. I’m taking the Wolverines with the spread less than 20 points.
Arizona (-1) vs. Utah
Get on the Arizona bandwagon while you can.
One of my top lookahead bets last week was Wildcats -6 vs. Colorado, and that line moved to -10 after Arizona’s win over UCLA. With Jedd Fisch’s surging team in line for a win at Colorado, this line figures to move at least a couple points in Arizona’s direction before Week 12.
Utah has enough defensive prowess to give Arizona a challenge, but the Utes have only played three true road games: A win over USC, a loss to Oregon State, and a narrow win over dismal Baylor. Going to Washington this weekend could be a wake-up call, and a bad loss in Seattle would damage Utah’s outlook ahead of the matchup with Baylor.
Because Utah’s floor is so high, I don’t expect this line to move dramatically, but Arizona has been gaining the trust of oddsmakers each week and should continue to move in a positive direction against a struggling Colorado team.
Georgia (-8) vs. Tennessee
Georgia has been rolling through teams lately, hitting its stride after a not-so-dominant start to the season. There’s no reason why the Bulldogs can’t quiet Ole Miss’ offense at home in Athens this weekend, and that could be enough to move this line close to double-digits.
The Rebels have not been the same team on the road, scoring just 10 points in Tuscaloosa and only beating a dismal Auburn offense by seven at Jordan-Hare. After a concerning defensive performance against Texas A&M, a trip to Athens is a serious danger spot for Ole Miss and could leave Georgia looking like a top national contender once again.
Tennessee has a tough road matchup against Missouri this weekend – the same Missouri team that just lost to Georgia. In what’s been an inconsistent season for Joe Milton, a disappointing performance would hurt the Vols’ outlook heading into the toughest game of the season. It wouldn’t be surprising to see this line push toward 10 points before kickoff.
UNLV (+9.5) vs. Air Force
Air Force severely slipped up last week, losing 23-3 to Army in what qualified as a stunning result. The Falcons have a chance to rebuild some value this week on the road in Hawaii, but it’s UNLV that looks like it will come into the Week 12 matchup with Air Force with the momentum.
The Rebels have only lost to Michigan and Fresno State this season, boasting an efficient run game and an improving passing attack. Air Force has a strong run defense, but this UNLV team can attack the Falcons’ defense with a bevy of weapons; the Rebels have three players with 75+ rushing attempts this season, with two averaging at least five yards per carry. UNLV also defends the run well, allowing 3.6 yards per carry, and the running game is what Air Force’s offense relies on.
With UNLV hosting Wyoming this weekend, the Rebels can move this line a bit closer by picking up a big win over one of the Mountain West’s more competitive teams. I’m taking UNLV +9.5 before it gets to that point.
