Below is week 12 picks and write-ups sent to subscribers:

 

Wake Forest (+34.5) at Clemson

Can the Demon Deacons pull out the miracle at Tiger Stadium? It is unbelievable that Wake Forest is the 2nd best team in the Atlantic division and find themselves as 34.5-point road dogs.  We don’t see the miracle happening, but we do like that many points. WF has one of the better defenses in the ACC and has thrived on 3rd downs. With that big of a spread, all we would need is a couple of stops and the offense to take care of the ball. Oh, and not to mention, WF is 3rd in fewest penalty yards. Those hidden yards lead to extra 1st downs and more time off the clock. Tick, tick, tick….Take the points as the Deacons will easily get us a cover.

 

Oklahoma at Baylor (+10.5)

McLane Stadium will be rocking Saturday night as the 9-0 Baylor Bears host the 8-1 Oklahoma Sooners. There are a lot of talking points as to why Baylor doesn’t deserve to win this game, but we are trusting our models and backing the Bears. OU’s defense is starting to look like its ugly self and Baylor has the offense to continue to exploit them. Not only do we think Baylor has a chance to win this game, but they are getting a 10.5-point cushion. Take the points and enjoy a Big-12 Shootout that has serious playoff implications.

 

Wisconsin (-14) at Nebraska

We are backing the road favorites as the 7-2 Badgers take on the 4-5 Cornhuskers. In 2017, Jonathon Taylor ran for 249 yards and scored twice. Last year Taylor ran for 221 yards and scored three times. This year should be no different and in both years Wisconsin outscored Nebraska 79-41. Wisconsin will control this game from start to finish and Nebraska’s offense will spend a lot of time on the sideline. Lay the points as JT will have a huge game and Wisconsin will keep pushing forward, hoping the Gophers trip up and have a shot at the Big Ten Championship game.

 

Kansas @ Oklahoma State (-17)

OSU comes into this game with one of the best ground games in the country. They average 6 yards a rush and 280 yards for the game. This is top 5 in both measures, which is incredibly impressive in what is a very solid top to bottom Big 12. Kansas, on the other hand, has almost the worst rush defense in the country, allowing 5 a rush and 250 a game. There is no doubt OSU will be running the ball and jamming play action all day. We fully expect this game to be controlled much like KSU and Kansas was. There’s just too much to like here to not lay the points and watch the Cowboys roll down the field. Lay the points for the ground game and Mike Gundy’s flow.

 

Air Force (-10) @ Colorado State

Air Force has been a very complete team this year. They run the ball better than anyone in the country, have a top 30 defense, a kicker that is 9 for 9 with a 57 yarder under his belt, and they are the least penalized team in the country. CSU has a top 50ish offense, but the positives stop there. They are bottom tier in D, kicking, turnover margin, and one of the most penalized teams in all CFB. This is a tale of a disciplined and tightly run ship, versus an offense with a sloppy support staff. We love the complete team that struts a superior D out on the field. Lay the points here for Air Force as they dominate this game in its entirety.

 

Wyoming (+5.5) @ Utah State

Wyoming rolls into this game 6-3, with their 3 losses coming by a combined 10 points. They have been an incredibly consistent team and sport one of the nation’s elite defenses. Utah State still seems to be getting love from cappers and the public due to their success last season. They are a very average at best team. There is nothing flashy or exciting about them. This is another one where the system loves that we are getting points and feels a win SU by the dog is the correct measure.
