Can the 10th-ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys hold it down at home in their NCAAF Week 12 battle against dangerous K-State? Will the 16th-ranked Washington Huskies get back in the win column following their Week 11 upset loss? Can No. 11 TCU and No. 25 NC State pick up big road wins this coming weekend?

After two straight weeks of some wild and crazy college football outcomes, now, more than ever, is the perfect time to check the opening NCAAF Lines for Week 12 and for some expert ATS picks that could help you cash in big over the course of the coming week.

Top Picks to Bet Against the Spread in NCAAF Week 12

Top NCAAB Betting Matchups of the Week – November 13th

Kansas State (5-5) at No. 10 Oklahoma State (8-2)

  • When: 3:30 PM ET, Saturday, November 18, 2017
  • Where: Boone Pickens Stadium, Stillwater, Oklahoma
  • NCAAF Week 12 Odds: Oklahoma State -21

The Wildcats are a perfect 4-0 ATS in their last four meetings against Oklahoma State despite having their two-game winning streak snapped in Saturday’s narrow 28-23 home loss against West Virginia. Oklahoma State is 1-3 ATS in their last four and just 2-5 ATS in their last seven despite going a polar opposite 3-1 and 5-2 SU over the same spans.

K-State has scored at least 28 points in each of their last four games and has gone a near-perfect 5-1 ATS in their last six games against the Cowboys. I won’t beat around the bush with this pick. I like Bill Snyder’s K-State Wildcats to cover the chalk in a closer-than-expected affair.

Latest NCAAF Week 12 Betting Trends

  • Wildcats are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games
  • Wildcats are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games when playing Oklahoma State
  • Cowboys are 2-4-1 ATS in their last 7 games
  • Cowboys are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games when playing at home against Kansas State

Pick: Kansas State +21

Utah (5-5) at No. 16 Washington (8-2)

  • When: 10:30 PM ET, Saturday, November 18, 2017
  • Where: Husky Stadium, Seattle, Washington
  • NCAAF Week 12 Odds: Washington -17

Now, 16th-ranked Washington didn’t show up like I thought they would in their 30-22 Week 11 road loss at Stanford on Friday night, but I still like the Huskies to rebound nicely to beat the hell out of struggling Utah in Week 12. The Utes have lost five of their last six games including their 33-25 loss to Washington State on Saturday and they have been just overmatched on both sides of the ball in this Pac-12 pairing.

Washington is a near-perfect 5-1 ATS in their last six games and I’m fully expecting the Huskies to find a way to win and cover the spread in this one!

Latest NCAAF Week 12 Betting Trends

  • Utes are 2-3-1 ATS in their last 6 games
  • Utes are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games on the road
  • Huskies are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games
  • Huskies are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games at home

Pick: Washington -17

No. 11 TCU (8-2) at Texas Tech (5-5)

  • When: Saturday, November 18, 12:00 PM ET
  • Where: Jones AT&T Stadium, Lubbock, Texas
  • NCAAF Week 12 Odds: TCU -7.5

TCU may no longer have a shot to reach the four-team College Football Playoff, but I like them to get past a Texas Tech team that is really mediocre defensively this season in spite of its ability to put points on the board. The Horned Frogs still have conference championship hopes and an outstanding defense despite giving up 38 points to Baker Mayfield and Oklahoma this past weekend. The Horned Frogs are 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games and 4 a perfect 4-0 ATS in their last four games following an ATS loss.

Texas Tech comes in as the NCAAF Week 12 Odds underdog.

Texas Tech has gone an uninspiring 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and the Red Raiders are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games against a team with a winning road record. I like the TCU Horned Frogs to rebound from their humbling loss last weekend.

Latest NCAAF Week 12 Betting Trends

  • Horned Frogs are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games on the road
  • Horned Frogs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games when playing Texas Tech
  • Red Raiders are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games

Pick: TCU -7.5

No. 25 NC State (7-3) at Wake Forest (6-4)

  • When: Saturday, November 18, 7:30 PM ET
  • Where: BB&T Field, Winston-Salem, North Carolina
  • NCAAF Week 12 Odds: Wake Forest -1.5

The NC State Wolfpack got past Boston College 17-14 this past weekend and gave Clemson a helluva’ way to go in their 38-31 home loss to the Tigers two weeks ago. However, for me, I like the red-hot Wake Forest Demon Deacons in this Week 12 ACC clash. Wake ‘opened up a huge can of whup-ass on Syracuse by beating the Orange 64-43 and they won two of three while also handing Louisville a stunning 42-32 loss in Week 9 to cash in as a 2.5-point home dog in that one.

I know NC State has a solid defense, but right now, Wake Forest is flying high and will not be denied. Wake has gone a near-perfect 4-0-1 ATS in their last five home games and an even more impressive 7-1 ATS in their last eight home games against NC State. Wakes win and cover the chalk!

Latest NCAAF Week 12 Betting Trends

  • The Wolfpack is 5-1-1 ATS in its last 7 games on the road
  • The Wolfpack is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games when playing Wake Forest
  • Demon Deacons are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games
  • Demon Deacons are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games at home

Pick: Wake Forest -1.5
