NCAA Football Week 12 Lines: Betting Odds & Predictions

There wasn’t much of a shake up last week in college football, at least where the top teams in the nation were concerned. Every top 10 team in action won last week, most in convincing fashion. In fact, this was the first time since 2009 that all 10 top 10 teams won in Week 11 or later in the season. The biggest upset to speak of came with No. 11 Kentucky losing at Tennessee.

We are now starting to get a better picture of what the playoff might look like. The most likely four teams to participate are currently Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame, and Michigan. There are plenty of scenarios where different teams might earn their way to a chance to compete for the title, but there are only a handful of teams with the record and remaining schedule to make their case. Let’s take a look at this week’s action and see who might be in line to improve their situation.

Week 12 College Football Vegas Odds & Free Picks Against the Spread

There are a few games with potential playoff implications this week. Alabama gets a cakewalk against The Citadel, while Clemson plays 7-3 Duke, Notre Dame plays No. 13 Syracuse, and Michigan plays conference rival Indiana. Of those games, Notre Dame seems to be the most vulnerable as just 9 point favorites, while everyone else is nearly four touchdown favorites or more.

Another game to keep an eye on is Iowa State at Texas. The winner here will be on track to make the Big 12 Championship game (likely against Oklahoma). The Longhorns are just 3-point home favorites and the Cyclones might be the best three loss team in the nation.

The table below give the odds for every matchup this week, plus a betting preview for each game (link posted as they become available). ¬†For a free prediction from one of our professional handicappers, but sure to check out BetFirm’s free college football picks.
