|Friday Locks Week 12 Results|
Memphis vs. UCF (-3.0) | Am I missing? The defending national champions (yeah, I said it) get no respect. Give me an easy cover for the Knights.
Fresno State vs. Boise State (-2.5) | The Broncos offense is better than the Bulldogs defense. I’ll take Boise and the field goal at home.
Northwestern (+13.5) vs. Ohio State | The Buckeyes are probably going to win, but the Wildcats didn’t lose to Purdue this season. That’s enough for me to pick them to cover the spread.
Georgia (+13.5) vs Alabama | Throughout a majority of the season, the Crimson Tide flashed a dominant side. That was until the program faced Citadel which proved Bama remains human. As Georgia collides with the juggernaut on the gridiron, there’s plenty riding on the upset opportunity for the Bulldogs outside of a conference title. Still, the Tide are favored for a reason but I believe UGA keeps it interesting throughout four quarters.
Fresno State (+3) vs Boise State | Earlier this year, Boise managed to outlast Fresno in a heated contest. However, one of the most difficult things in all of college football is to beat a program twice in the same year. That’s the reason I’m going with Fresno for a straight up win in this one. Give me the points and the Bulldogs.
Pittsburgh (-27.5) vs Clemson | The reality of the situation here is that Clemson has the easiest road to a conference crown in the Power 5. As an undefeated team, the Tigers are a lock for the CFP barring a complete meltdown. Building a sizable lead, Clemson pulls the starters early failing to cover the spread here.
Pittsburg + 27.5 vs. Clemson | Clemson is clearly the better team in this matchup. I think they win this game pretty easily, but it won’t be by four touchdowns. Look for Pittsburg to hang around early, and then Clemson pull away at the end of the game.
Washington -5.5 vs. Utah | This game might be the best “shootout” this weekend. In my opinion, this will be a very close game. That being said, I’ll take the Huskies by a touchdown.
Boise State -2.5 vs. Fresno State | I could see Boise State coming out and dominating this game from the start. Don’t be surprised if the Broncos jump out early in this one. I think Boise State wins this game by a couple of touchdowns.
Utah (+5.5) vs. Washington | I’ve got the Utes and the Huskies as a mirror of one another. I think this game could come down to a field goal and either way that goes Utah covers.
Georgia (+13.5) vs. Alabama | Maybe it’s wishful thinking but I don’t see the Tide running away with this game. Georgia falls but they do so by a slim margin.
Fresno State (+2.5) vs. Boise State | We’ve got a small spread here but the wrong team is favored. Fresno State is scoring nearly 35 points per game and Boise is giving up an average of 22. How are the Bulldogs underdogs here?
