Thursday, November 29, 2012
College football betting winds down its regular season this week, and the Don Best crew has picks for six games before the bowl season begins.
Saturday kicks off with a pair of Big 12 battles. Oklahoma is still clinging to conference title hopes as the Sooners trek to Cowtown to take on Texas Christian. This is the first time that TCU and OU have met as conference foes, and the Sooners are giving up 6½ on the road with a 60-point total (click to check updated college football odds).
While the Sooners and Frogs are battling in Ft. Worth, Oklahoma State will be just a couple hours south in Waco to meet the Baylor Bears. The Cowboys are listed at -4½ for the game that is carrying a huge 86½-point total. The teams are a combined 15-5 "over" on the season, and the last two in this series have also jumped the number.
Out in the Mountain West, Boise State is in Reno to tackle the Nevada Wolf Pack. The Broncos opened as 8½-point favorites, but the Don Best Real-Time Odds screen now shows them at -9½. Scoreboard bettors are looking at 60.
Tulsa will host the Conference USA Championship Game, and the Golden Hurrican are 2-point favorites against Central Florida with a 55-point total. The clubs met on this field a few weeks ago, the Golden Hurricane eked out a 23-21 win as 1-point chalk.
Charlotte, NC is the site for the ACC title game that finds Florida State -14 against Georgia Tech. Both teams are playing in their third conference championship and Saturday night's total opened at 63½.
Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis will host the Big Ten Championship between Nebraska and Wisconsin. The 'Huskers are 3-point favorites with 49 for the scoreboard watch. Nebraska scored a 30-27 victory over the Badgers at home on Sept. 29.
