The Shake Down: Week 12 College Football Bets

A look at the best bets during week 12 of the college football season.
Publish date:

With each passing week of 2020, there seems to be fewer games to pick from when it comes to putting a bet down. That's especially true for Fighting Irish fans in weeks without Notre Dame games.

Regardless of a Notre Dame bye week and cancellations around the country, I was able to dig up a few solid opportunities for you gambling types to make a profit this weekend.

I found three underdogs I like, and I'll be putting money on all three of them.


Spread: Coastal Carolina -4.5

Appalachian State has been on a roll since dropping a tough one to Marshall back in mid-September. They are without a doubt the toughest team Coastal Carolina will have faced this season, and the Mountaineers are on the road playing with house money. I like Appalachian State to end the dream season for the Chanticleers and win this game outright.


Spread: Iowa State -10.5

The Wildcats have dropped two in a row, and one was a bad loss to West Virginia. That game was simply a matchup issue for Kansas State. This isn't a team you are going to beat by double digits often, and there's no way Iowa State -- with their style of play -- will do it. I see a low scoring game that Iowa State might win, but not by 10 points. Take the Wildcats with the points.


Spread: Oklahoma -7

I feel like the Cowboys are more experienced and more talented than the Sooners -- especially on defense. That's going to matter in a rivalry game where emotions get the best of you. If they were going to play this game in front of a capacity crowd in Norman, I'd probably take the Sooners. As it stands, I think Oklahoma State wins this game going away.
