– Situation Conference Games of the Week</strong></p> <p><strong>AAC</strong> – We have Central Florida as four-point higher favorites (-15 compared to -11),  and we really like how the way the offense is coming around and think <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/pick-south-florida-cover-home-vs-central-florida/51681/" target="_blank" title="Pick South Florida

want the basketball season to take over. We have the Eagles two points higher, no problem.</p> <p><strong>Big 12</strong> – The sportsbooks and our numbers agree TCU should be a six-point favorite. Interesting to note, about 55% of bettors are backing the Horned Frogs, but college football handicappers overwhelmingly are. Take the points with Texas and make add them to your <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/" target="_blank" title="Free NCAAF Picks">college football picks</a>.</p> <p><strong>Big Ten</strong> – After staggering in October and early November, Northwestern has heated up like the Thanksgiving gravy out of the microwave at 3-0 SU and ATS and should handle Illinois no problem at home with our <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/college-football/" target="_blank" title="Stay Up to Date with SBR's Live NCAAF Odds">college football odds</a> three points higher at -11.</p> <p><strong>C-USA</strong> – Odds makers have Louisiana Tech as touchdown favorite over Rice at home, but the Bulldogs have suffered peculiar losses this season. We have this contest as pick and have no issue taking the points.</p> <p><strong>Independents</strong> – With how Cal plays defense, not sure they should be a four-point home favorite <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/college-football/free-picks/pick-road-dog-byu-vs-california-week-14-college-football-a-51714/" target="_blank" title="Pick BYU vs California ">against a BYU</a> squad that can also score points. Our numbers has this as a Pick.</p> <p><strong>MAC</strong> – Western Michigan was 1-11 last season and is 8-3 this year with an alarming 10 spread covers in a row! While we like the Northern Illinois football program, not about to go against the Broncos and we have them 2.5 points higher than the line.</p> <p><strong>MWC</strong> – Rivalry game for Air Force hosting a smoldering Colorado State crew. We can see the Flyboys giving a great effort and we back our figure being three points lower at +4.5.</p> <p><strong>Pac-12</strong> – There is no good reason to think <a civil href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/oregon-vs-oregon-state-civil-war-showdown/51751/" target="_blank" title="Check Out the Oregon vs Oregon St. ">Oregon at -19.5 over Oregon State</a> in the Civil War should not be correct unless you buy into the hungry home underdog in this type of contest, which has them 5-3 ATS in recent confrontations.</p> <p><strong>SEC</strong> – We have an upset that that would shake up the college football world if it comes true. In the Egg Bowl we have <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/bet-mississippi-state-ats-vs-ole-miss-week-14-ncaaf/51670/" target="_blank" title="Our Pick for Mississippi vs Ole Miss">Ole Miss to knock off Mississippi State</a> by 1!</p> <p><strong>Sun Belt </strong>– Georgia Southern’s top-ranked run defense should steam-roll UL-Monroe. However, the Eagles are trying to go unbeaten and win the Sun Belt in their first year and sometimes the pressure piles up. Bettors have the home team at -14, we are at -10, let’s see what happens.</p>
