Our top four teams in college football remain the same, as everyone took care of business in Week 11. We are now rolling through the last of the regular season weeks and preparing for the conference championship showdowns and we’ve got our top four NCAA Football week 12 betting picks.
No. 1 Georgia knows it will play LSU for the SEC title. TCU moved on to the Big 12 Championship following last week’s win over Texas. And we are a week away from Michigan and Ohio State, and the winner moving on to the Big Ten title game.
NCAA Football Week 12 Betting Pick #1 – No.1 Georgia at No. 24 Kentucky (+22.5)
The bloom is a little off the Kentucky rose after losing last week to Vanderbilt, but they do get a Georgia team that could be looking past the Wildcats. For the top-ranked Bulldogs, their future is set. This game, of course, means everything in the national standings, but their SEC fate will be decided the first weekend of December.
Georgia won’t really have a letdown. Instead, the Wildcats will play well, control offensive drives, and keep this final score to within three touchdowns.
NCAA Football Week 12 Betting Pick #2 – No. 21 Illinois (+18) at No. 3 Michigan
Michigan will not get caught looking past the Illini and their trip to Columbus. This game is at home, they are too experienced and focused, and Illinois has been struggling. But will the Wolverines cover the large spread against one of the conference’s preseason favorites?
Illinois’ defense is very good, ignoring the last two weeks, and they will keep this from being a high-scoring game, which will keep the Michigan victory to around 14 points. Take the points.
NCAA Football Week 12 Betting Pick #3 – No. 8 USC (-2) at No. 12 UCLA
There are a lot of storylines heading into the battle of Los Angeles. It’s the championship of the city, which is always a fun game, but for the Bruins, they must rebound after last week’s bad loss to Arizona.
For USC, they are trying to stake its claim as the best team in the Pac-12, which was helped by Oregon’s loss last week. The UCLA offense is very good, but the Trojans overall are better, and they will win and cover at the Rose Bowl, clinching their spot in the Pac-12 Championship.
NCAA Football Week 12 Betting Pick #4 – No. 13 Utah at No. 6 Oregon (-3)
Because of Oregon’s loss to Washington last week, they are likely out of the College Football Playoff, and they now need a win over Utah to get into the Pac-12 Championship. If Oregon wins out, they go to Las Vegas. But if Utah wins out, they will play for the conference title.
It’s hard to see Oregon losing a second straight game at home. Utah’s offense is great but not enough to get past the Ducks. Go with Oregon and give the points.
