Only two more full weeks of college football betting action remain, and the Don Best crew covers seven games on the Week 12 slate with picks and predictions.
Michigan State needs at least one more win in its final two games to become bowl eligible, and oddsmakers think the Spartans will get it this Saturday at home vs. Northwestern. Michigan State is laying 7-7½ to the Wildcats with a 45-point total (click to check updated college football odds).
A huge Big East tilt takes place in Porkopolis where the Cincinnati Bearcats are favored by six over Rutgers. The Scarlet Knights beat the Bearcats last year to stop a five-game slide vs. Cincy.
One of three Big 12 games included in this video finds the Oklahoma Sooners at West Virginia. The Sooners are 11-point consensus favorites on the Don Best Real-Time Odds screen, which also lists 74 for the total.
The top-ranked Kansas State Wildcats are on the road in Waco against the Baylor Bears. Heisman Trophy favorite Collin Klein and the 'Cats are giving up 13 points with yet another 74-point total for a Big 12 battle. Four of the last five in this series have gone "over" the total.
The first of two Conference USA clashes tackled by the Don Best experts takes place in Houston, where the Rice Owls host SMU. The Mustangs are 3½-point road favorites to win their fourth straight game in this series.
A potential CUSA championship preview will be played in Tulsa, where the Golden Hurricanes are -1½ vs. the Central Florida Knights. Tulsa has won the last two matchups with the Knights, covering both victories.
More offense is expected in the final contest being previewed, and it is yet again from the Big 12 where Texas Tech visits Oklahoma State. The Cowboys are favored by 10½-11, and the scoreboard tally is set between 72 and 73 points.
