Top College Football Week 12 Betting Picks & Expert Predictions

Syracuse (4-6) at Louisville (6-4)

  • When: Saturday, November 18, 3:30 PM ET
  • Where: Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium, Louisville, Kentucky
  • College Football Week 12 Betting Odds: Louisville -13
It’s not that Syracuse has lost three straight that bothers me. It’s how the Orange lost on Saturday. Syracuse looked to me like they flat-out quit in their completely pitiful 64-43 home loss against Wake Forest this past weekend while giving up 24 unanswered points in the fourth quarter. Syracuse was outscored 40-5 over the final two quarters and just looks like they’re ready for this seaso0n to be over with.While Louisville has been a huge disappointment for me this season, they did look good in their 38-21 beatdown of Virginia on Saturday and have scored at least 31 points in each of their last four games. Not only have the Orange gone 1-5 ATS in their last six meetings against Louisville, but the favorite in this ACC rivalry is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings. More importantly, Lamar Jackson is still a monster dual-threat superstar and one of the most difficult players in the country to defend against. Louisville wins and covers the spread!

Iowa State (6-4) at Baylor (1-9)

  • When: Saturday, November 18, 12:00 PM ET
  • Where: McLane Stadium, Waco, Texas
  • College Football Week 12 Betting Odds: Iowa State -9.5
I don’t know how else to say it, but Baylor is in big trouble against a now, unranked – and likely ticked off – Iowa State team that has suffered a pair of close losses the last two weeks to see their big-time bowl games take a significant hit. Iowa State has one of the best defenses in the nation and they’re probably looking to take out their frustration on lowly Baylor after giving up a whopping 49 points against Oklahoma State this past weekend. Baylor has just one win this season and it came against a Kansas Jayhawks team that looks unfit to be playing at the D-I level right about now.The Cyclones are a nearly unblemished 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 conference games, a perfect 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games after allowing more than 40 points in their previous game and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up loss. Baylor is 10-22 ATS in their last 32 games following a double-digit loss at home and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games in the month of November. Personally, I think this matchup is as close to a lock as it gets!According to the College Football Week 12 Betting Odds, Iowa State is a huge favorite to beat Baylor.

Purdue (4-6) at Iowa (6-4)

  • When: Saturday, November 18, 12:00 PM ET
  • Where: Kinnick Stadium, Iowa City, Iowa
  • College Football Week 12 Betting Odds: Iowa -8.5
While I love the job that Jeff Brohm has done in his first year at Purdue, he’s still in the very beginning stages of a rebuilding mode that will take a couple of seasons to get where he really wants to go. Right now, the Iowa Hawkeyes are looking to finish off what has been a very solid season. Despite ending up on the wrong side of a humbling 38-14 loss against No. 5 Wisconsin this past weekend, Iowa has played some really good football recently and absolutely blew No. 8 Ohio State out of the water in its 55-24 Week 10 stunner two weeks ago.Purdue has dropped four of five as it winds down the regular season in search of a six-win season and accompanying bowl bid. I know the Boilermakers have gone 10-2-2 ATS in their last 14 road games vs. a team with a winning home record, but Iowa is a near-perfect 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 home games and impressive 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in the month of November. Iowa wins and covers the chalk!

  • Hawkeyes are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games at home
