Upset Picks College Football Week 12

With each of the last two weeks producing some of the biggest upsets that we’ve seen in the 2017 college football season, I’m going to keep that ‘upset’ theme in mind with a trio of Week 12 upset picks that will all have a good chance of cashing in. Let’s get to it!

TCU (8-2) at Texas Tech (5-5)
When: 12:00 PM ET, Saturday, November 18, 2017
Where: Jones AT&T Stadium, Lubbock, Texas
Odds: TCU -6.5

Analysis: I know TCU is the ‘better’ team in this contest and that the Horned Frogs have one of the better defenses in the nation this season. However, Texas Tech has the prolific and higher-scoring offense in this contest and I believe they’re a really good upset pick as a home dog in this one. TCU has lost two of three and I believe their confidence is a bit shaken, after giving up 38 points this past weekend against Oklahoma. Ironically, Texas Tech hung an identical 38 points on Baylor and I like them to win outright for the second straight season. Tech has won three of the last five meetings against TCU and the Red Raiders can put points on the board in bunches.

Upset Pick Week 12: Texas Tech

Purdue (4-6) at Iowa (6-4)
When: 12:00 PM ET, Saturday, November 18, 2017
Where: Kinnick Stadium, Iowa City, Iowa
Odds: Iowa -8.5

Analysis: I really like Iowa and the way they’ve competed this season, not to mention I loved seeing them beat the hell out of Ohio State a few weeks ago. Having said that, I also like the way Jeff Brohm has gotten his rebuild at Purdue started this season, Now, heading into this Week 12 Big Ten battle, I believe the Boilermakers are primed for the upset win even though they’ve dropped four of five. Purdue has scored 24 points or more in two of their last three games while Iowa has been limited to 17 points or less in three of their last four games while losing two of those contests. The road team in this series is a perfect 7-0 ATS in the last seven meetings and the Boilermakers have gone 10-2-2 ATS in their last 14 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. Purdue gets the stunning upset road win.

Upset Pick Week 12: Purdue

NC State (7-3) at Wake Forest (6-4)
When: 7:30 PM ET, Saturday, November 18, 2017
Where: BB&T Field, Winston-Salem, North Carolina
Odds: Wake Forest -1.5

Analysis: Wake Forest is playing good football right now and they exploded for 64 points on Syracuse this past weekend, but for me, NC State has been the more consistent team this season. The Wolfpack got past Boston College 17-14 this past weekend and gave Clemson a helluva’ way to go in their 38-31 home loss to the Tigers two weeks ago. NC State is the better statistical team defensively and has won three straight over the Demon Deacons in this series. More importantly, the Wolfpack have held seven of their last nine opponents to 25 points or less and five of those opponents to 21 points or less. Wake Forest has lost four of their last six games and has given up over 40 points in each of their last two games. I smell an ‘upset’ brewing in this one!
