With the 2018 college football season in its stretch run and conference championship play set to get started in no time at all, the trio of College Football Week 12 betting picks that you’re about to get could carry you a long way towards a few more wins before the end of the regular season.

Now, let’s find out if Wake, Rutgers and Louisville can all cover the chalk or win outright.

NCAA Football Week 12 Parlay Picks

Pittsburgh (6-4) at Wake Forest (5-5)

  • When: Saturday, November 17, 2018 at 12:00 PM ET
  • Where: BB&T Field, Winston-Salem, North Carolina
  • NCAA Football Week 12 Odds: Pittsburgh -4.5

Streaking Pittsburgh (7-3 ATS) has won three straight and they looked phenomenal in their 52-22 beatdown of Virginia Tech as a 3.5-point home favorite on Saturday as running back Qadree Ollison rushed for 235 yards and three touchdowns on just 16 carries. Wake Forest (5-5 SU, 3-7 ATS) managed to bounce back from its Week 10 loss to beat NC State 27-23 this past weekend to easily cover the spread as a whopping 19.5-point road underdog. Quarterback Jamie Newman passed for 297 yards and three touchdowns in the win while Wake used a great defensive effort to limit NC State to just 47 rushing yards in the win.

Prediction

Pittsburgh is the simple pick in this matchup if only because Wake Forest is awful defensively in allowing 35.8 points per contest defensively. Pittsburgh is 5-0 ATS in its last 5 games and 4-2 ATS in its last 6 games on the road. Conversely, Wake Forest is an awful 3-9 ATS in its last 12 games and even more discouraging 1-6 ATS in its last 7 home games.

NCAA Football Week 12 Pick: Pittsburgh 35 Wake Forest 28

No. 20 Penn State (7-3) at Rutgers (1-9)

  • When: Saturday, November 17, 2018 at 12:00 PM ET
  • Where: High Point Solutions Stadium, Piscataway, New Jersey
  • NCAA Football Week 12 Odds: Penn State -27

No. 20 Penn State rebounded from their discouraging Week 10 loss against Michigan to pick up a hard-fought 22-10 win over Wisconsin on Saturday as running back Miles Sanders rushed for 159 yards and one touchdown while quarterback Trace McSorley passed for 160 yards and another score. The Nittany Lions defense picked off Wisconsin quarterback Jack Coan twice in the win. Rutgers has lost nine straight and comes into this contest off an embarrassing 42-7 blowout loss against Michigan on Saturday, although the Scarlet Knights did manage to cover the chalk as a 36.5-point underdog.

Prediction

I know Penn State is 6-3 ATS in its last 9 games and 11-3 SU in its last 14 games, but Rutgers is 4-2 ATS in its last 6 games and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games after totaling less than 170 passing yards in their previous game. I like Penn State to get the easy win, but I’m going with the Scarlet Knights to cover the chalk. The Nittany Lions have been a disappointment this season and Rutgers has kept the vast majority of their nine straight losses respectable at the very least.

NCAA Football Week 12 Pick: Penn State 42 Rutgers 21

NC State (6-3) at Louisville (2-8)

  • When: Saturday, November 17, 2018 at 12:20 PM ET
  • Where: Cardinal Stadium, Louisville, Kentucky
  • NCAA Football Week 12 Odds: NC State -15

NC State was on the wrong end of a narrow 27-23 home loss against Wake Forest this past weekend that dropped them to 1-3 over their last four games. The Wolfpack got 374 passing yards with one touchdown and one interception from quarterback Ryan Finley but it was not nearly enough as Wake’s Jamie Newman tossed three TD passes to help the Demon Deacons cover the chalk as 19.5-point road underdogs. Louisville has lost seven straight and comes into this contest off a pitiful 54-23 road loss at Syracuse last weekend while never coming close to covering the spreed as a 20-point underdog.

Prediction

Louisville has suffered each of their last five losses by 18 points or more while allowing 54 points or more in four of their last five games. Louisville has basically quit this season and that makes NC State a near lock to me at -15. NC State averages almost 10 points per game more than Louisville while giving up almost 17 fewer points per game defensively.

North Carolina State is 8-3 SU in its last 11 games and 3-1-1 ATS in their last five road games against a team with a losing home record. Louisville is 0-5 SU and ATS in its last 5 games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and a discouraging 3-14 ATS in their last 17 games against a team with a winning record. NC State wins and covers!
