Joe Gavazzi's 'ICE' betting trend has been a solid 7-4 ATS for 63% winners. For week 12 of College Football betting picks, he takes a look into the noon clash between Kansas St. and Baylor.

Kansas St. (-2) vs Baylor Noon ET

Each week in my analysis, I isolate an ICE GAME OF THE WEEK in which I favor a program that has historically operated with Intention, Conviction and operates with Execution. This week, we welcome the Kansas St. Wildcats as our ICE team of the week under legendary HC Bill Snyder. Today’s selection is cemented by one of Snyder’s best roles that feature an undefeated record in the previous 5 years. But, before I can tell you that story, allow me to tell you about the Baylor Bears.  

No Power 5 team in the land has fallen faster than these Bears. The reason, based largely on the fact the school and team have been dealing with sexual misconduct charges by the football players, has negatively impacted the chemistry, cohesion and unity of the team. Administrators have been fired, along with highly successful HC Art Briles. Interim HC Grobe held the team together in a 6-0 SU start against a weak schedule. Now, that the Bears have lost 3 consecutive games that interim coaching staff is beginning to polish their resumes, while the team, who was used to competing for the Big 12 crown, has become splintered. The FCB (Final Crushing Blow) has come with the injury of starting QB Seth Russell (leg), who is out for the season. With team unity at an all-time low and lack of depth impacting the downward spiral, the decline continues for a Baylor team who is on negative runs of 3 - 12 and 2 - 7 ATS.

Enter the smartly coached Kansas St. Wildcats, who are a single win away from Bowl eligibility  As if there was needed motivation, there is revenge for losses in the last 4 seasons to these Bears (when Baylor was clearly the better team). Under Snyder, the Wildcats are a great example of ICE teams. The Wildcats are year in and year out one of the most fundamental strong squads in the nation, who rarely beat themselves. Best part of today’s handicap is that the Wildcats have had 2 weeks to prepare for this meeting. Under Snyder, in the last 5 years, they are 10 - 0 ATS with rest. I invite you to put the College Football ODDS in your favor and join me in my College Football PICK on Kansas St. this afternoon.
