We are at the stage of the season where the big picture is beginning to look a good deal clearer. For example, we already know that Alabama and Georgia will be squaring off in the SEC Conference Championship game in a few weeks, but we still don’t know whether both of those teams will be in the playoffs. Long story short, there are still a lot of things to be decided before we get to the end of the regular season a couple of weeks from now. There are still some huge games to come in the next couple of Saturday’s, particularly in the Big Ten and Big 12, where things are still pretty wide open. For now, we have out focus solely on the coming weekend, so let’s get into our SU picks for Week 12 of the college football season. Let’s jump right into action so you can get all set to bet against the NCAA Football odds.
College Football SU Picks for Week 12 to Bet On
Florida State Seminoles over Boston College Eagles
While neither of these teams are going to be in the conversation for the ACC Conference Championship Game, there is still something to play for here. Specifically, the Florida State Seminoles are 4-6 and need to win out to become bowl eligible. The Eagles are 6-4 on the season and have already punched a bowl ticket, although whether that has any impact on how this game is played remains to be seen. The Seminoles got a nice little boost this past weekend with a win over the Miami Hurricanes, but that is just one step in their march towards a bowl game. As far as this meeting goes, the Seminoles have won 9 of the last 10 versus Boston College and have won 5 of their last 7 on the road against the Eagles. I think they ride the momentum of last week’s win to get a victory here.
Texas Longhorns over West Virginia Mountaineers
It may not be the best thing to do, but I do enjoy adding a very iffy pick to my parlays and then leave it up to you guys whether to play along or not. This week, taking Texas to win a game of football is certainly up there in terms of risky picks. The Longhorns have now lost 5-straight games to fall to 4-6 on the season, which is the same record as the West Virginia Mountaineers. Their 57-56 loss to Kansas this past weekend was of the shocking variety and it’s tough to imagine how they bounce back from that one. The Mountaineers have won 8 of their last 10 games at home, which makes this pick even more precarious, but I just have a feeling that Texas will come away with the victory.
UCLA Bruins over USC Trojans
The PAC 12 is another conference that looks to be decided, with Oregon and Utah almost certainly going to the Conference Championship Game. While that puts a bit of a damper on the upcoming conference matchups, don’t tell that to UCLA and USC, as this is a meeting that both teams have circled on the schedule every single year. The Bruins broke out of a mini slump with a win last weekend, punching their bowl game ticket in the process. At 4-6, the Trojans are in real danger of missing out on a bowl game, and with 3 losses in their last 4, pulling out 2 more wins seems unlikely. UCLA have been poor on the road to USC, winning just 1 of the last 11, but I think they are more than good enough to get the win here.
