Top Week 12 college football predictions
One of the top Week 12 college football picks the model is recommending: No. 10 Wisconsin (-7) covers against No. 19 Northwestern in a 3:30 p.m ET matchup of Big Ten contenders. Both teams are unbeaten both straight up and against the spread. But while Northwestern has won three straight by one score, the Badgers have blown out their two opponents, blasting Illinois 45-7 in their opener, and then returning from a couple weeks off due to COVID-19 last week to destroy Michigan 49-11.
Freshman quarterback Graham Mertz has taken care of the ball this year (7 TDs, 0 INTs), while Wisconsin’s rushing attack racked up a whopping 341 yards and five touchdowns against the Wolverines. SportsLine’s model sees this as a double-digit win for the Badgers as they pick up the cover in well over 50 percent of simulations.
Another one of the Week 11 predictions from the model: No. 23 Auburn (-10.5) covers at home against Tennessee in a 7 p.m. ET SEC matchup on Saturday. Both teams had their game postponed last week due to COVID-19. The Tigers, however, won two straight before that, knocking off LSU and Ole Miss. Tennessee has struggled mightily, losing five in a row and failing to stay within the spread in all of them.
The simulations show Auburn quarterback Bo Nix throwing for around 250 yards and two touchdowns while adding 50 yards and a score on the ground. The model shows the Tigers winning by 17 points, covering the point spread well over 60 percent of the time.
How to make Week 12 college football picks
The model has also made the call on who wins and covers in the top-10 showdown between Ohio State vs. Indiana and every other Week 12 FBS matchup, and it is also predicting a major upset in the Pac-12. You can only get every pick for every game at SportsLine.
