Bowl season is almost here and my trio of expert picks that you’re about to get will help you in your efforts to cash in early and often this coming weekend. Let’s get started.

Michigan (8-2) at No. 8 Wisconsin (10-0)
When: 12:00 PM ET, Saturday, November 18, 2017
Where: Camp Randall Stadium, Madison, Wisconsin
Odds: Wisconsin -8.5

Analysis: Sure, Michigan has won three straight while holding Rutgers to 14 points three weeks ago and both, Minnesota and Maryland to an identical 10 points in each of their last two games. Hello? I’m not impressed, people! What’s far more impressive to me is Wisconsin’s 38-14 smackdown this past weekend over an Iowa team that has turned out to be pretty good this season.

The Badgers have scored 38 points or more in three of their last four games and four of six overall. I don’t know why 56 percent of public bettors like the mediocre Wolverines to cover the chalk in this one, but I sure don’t!

Expert Pick Week 12: Wisconsin -8.5

No. 5 Oklahoma (9-1) at Kansas (1-9)
When: 3:30 PM ET, Saturday, November 18, 2017
Where: Memorial Stadium, Lawrence, Kansas
Odds: Oklahoma -35

Analysis: Normally, I’d be a bit cautious with a spread that says one team is 35 points better than another. Especially when it a conference rival and not some mid-major that is completely overmatched against a national powerhouse. However, in the case of the Jayhawks, they are closer to a mid-major program that has no chance of beating any team that plays halfway competent football.

After losing to TCU 43-0, Iowa State 45-0 and falling to Texas Tech by 38 points, it’s no wonder why 71 percent of public bettors are backing Baker Mayfield and the streaking Oklahoma Sooners in this one. Jump on this game now before the spread moves closer to 40 points by mid-week!

Expert Pick Week 12: Oklahoma -35

No. 21 Iowa State (6-4) at Baylor (1-9)
When: 12:00 PM ET, Saturday, November 18, 2017
Where: McLane Stadium, Waco, Texas
Odds: Iowa State -9.5

Analysis: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice and it’s shame on me. Fool me like four times as Baylor has done this season and I need my head examined. Despite the fact that Iowa State has lost two straight, both losses came in absolutely heartbreaking fashion and the Cyclones are still, by far a much better team than rebuilding Baylor.

The Cyclones will win this game by closer to three touchdowns than the strange 9.5-point spread they’re looking at as road favorites. There’s no numbers-crunching needed and no look at a bunch of ATS trends. Iowa State is as close to a ‘lock’ as it gets in this Week 12 mismatch!
