Levi's Weekly College Football Week 12 and NFL Week 11 Picks

YTD Record: 45-34-2 +5.25u

17 Iowa v. Illinois (+13), 1:00 PM CT

The Illini have been impossible to figure out betting-wise this season, but I think they keep this one within two touchdowns with solid defensive play and a good rushing attack. Similar to last week, the Hawks get the win but not easily.

Iowa State v. #12 Oklahoma (-2.5, -150), 11:00 AM CT
Coming off a beatdown loss to Baylor, the Sooners still control their own CFP destiny. I’m buying a point here at -150 in case this comes down to a kick, but expect Lincoln Riley to have his guys ready for another tough opponent in Ames.

13 Wake Forest (+170 ML) v. Clemson, 11:00 AM CT

The Demon Deacons can clinch a berth in the ACC title game with a win, and Clemson has not shown anything this year to be favored in this matchup.

11 Baylor (-2.5, +150) v. Kansas State, 4:30 PM CT

Vegas currently favors the Wildcats by a point, but I’ll take the alternate spread at +150. Dave Aranda should be considered for COTY and I think the Bears take care of business on the road to keep on top of the Big 12 race.

10 Ole Miss (-23 1H) v. Vanderbilt, 6:30 PM CT

Despite rumors circling around Lane Kiffin and the Miami job, I like the Rebels to cover a big first-half spread against the worst P5 team in the country.

9 Oklahoma State (-9.5) v. Texas Tech, 7:00 PM CT

The Cowboys are quietly in playoff contention and Tech is in an obvious letdown spot after the emotional win vs. Iowa State last week. I like the better team to cover by at least two scores.

IND Colts (+7) v. BUF Bills
DET Lions (+11) v. CLE Browns
DAL Cowboys v. KC Chiefs (OVER 56.5)

Dog of the Week: WAS Football Team (+130) v. CAR Panthers
Both teams are coming off impressive upset victories, but WFT’s defense is starting to play like the top-5 unit we all expected. Cam Newton will likely start for the Panthers but Montez Sweat and Jonathan Allen can keep CMC in check while forcing Newton to air it out, even without Chase Young.
