Week 12 is about to be crazy. We are genuinely in store for some madness as the Top 25 matchups go wild right now in the college football world and every game means that much more as we enter the end of the season here. I am amped to see what might come out of this weekend and how it’ll shake up the College Football Playoffs. Alabama, Oregon, and ohio State are all playing very talented teams and this will be a week that tells all. Let’s break down the matchups for these three top-5 teams and see what might go down. 

Week 12 College Football Best Bets

#3 Oregon vs #23 Utah 

The Oregon Ducks are an underdog on the road as they take on the Utah Utes on Saturday and I am all about Oregon in this game. They have been underdogs twice so far this season and they have won outright in both of those games. I get that Utah has put together an impressive performance down the stretch this season but they have had some sketchy losses themselves this year and the Oregon loss came down to a really bad blown call against Stanford. I love the fact that Oregon is getting disrespected like this. I know that Pac 12 cannibalism is real and it’s alive, but I have a great feeling about Oregon in this game. Utah doesn’t have the talent to match up with the Ducks. One of the biggest things that jumps out is third-down conversions, something Oregon does over 60 percent of the time. Give me, Oregon on the ML.  

#7 Michigan State vs #4 Ohio State

The Buckeyes are a 19-point favorite at home against a 9-1 Spartan team that is just three spots behind them in the CFP poll and two spots behind them in the AP Poll. This is a disrespectful line to Michigan State who find themselves behind even Michigan, despite beating them. Kenneth Walker III is an unstoppable force and Ohio State is going to have its hands full in this game. Michigan State is 5-1 ATS in their last six games and they are 7-2-1 ATS this season. I don’t get the line here for a team that is a potential CFP favorite if they win this game and boot Ohio State from the rotation. Yes, it is being played in Columbus and yes, CJ Stroud is a monster, but three scores is far too many. Give me, Michigan State +19.5 

#21 Arkansas vs #2 Alabama 

Boy, the Crimson Tide got called out by Nick Saban and they basically beat a team so bad that they may reconsider being a college football team anymore. The Crimson Tide are rolling and they are coming off a pair of SEC wins followed by the non-conference win just in time to gain a ton of confidence as they host the Arkansas Razorbacks. This team is so improved and so impressive and 20.5 is a lot of points, but this Alabama team is now in mid-season form for a National Championship and I don’t see anyone getting close to them not named Georgia. Give me, Alabama -20.5
