Week 14 College Football Upset PicksJosh Bailey
Since any game worth its salt this week in college football is either a rivalry battle or a conference championship game, finding upset picks was a daunting task. I have found a trio of Week 14 college football upset picks that you can take to the bank. Let’s get started.
Week 14 Upset Picks
Will Temple take it to ranked Navy as a dog on Dec. 3? What’s going to happen when rivals Oklahoma State and Oklahoma clash in Norman this Saturday? Could Top 10 ranked Penn State take down Wisconsin as a dog in the Big Ten Championship Game?
Temple at #20 Navy
When: Saturday, Dec. 3 at 12:00 pm ET
Where: Navy Marine Corp Memorial Stadium, Annapolis, MD
Odds: Temple +3
Analysis: Navy snuck into the Top 25 on the AP Poll after beating SMU 75 to 31 as a -7 road favorite on Nov. 26. The Midshipmen were unbelievably good in that game. They should be good against Temple on Dec 3.
But Temple has been unbelievable against the spread since losing 13 to 28 to Army on September 2. The Owls are 9-3 straight up. That’s impressive. What’s more impressive than that? How about going 11-1 against the spread this season by winning 11 straight ATS?
As good as Navy is, and the Midshipmen are a good football team, Temple is on an unreal roll against the spread. The Owls are the team to back on the moneyline since they have a real shot of beating Navy straight up.
Week 14 Upset Pick: Temple +3
#11 Oklahoma State at #7 Oklahoma
When: Saturday, Dec. 3 at 12:30 pm ET
Where: Memorial Stadium, Norman, OK
Odds: Oklahoma State +13
Analysis: The College Football Playoff Selection Committee loves to give the benefit of the doubt to any team in the Big Ten as well as Oklahoma. Don’t be surprised if the Selection Committee puts Oklahoma into the Top 7 after their Tuesday meeting.
That could make Oklahoma State an even bigger underdog against the spread. The Cowboys are a must bet at -13. I suggest that football bettors also wait for a moneyline to come out on this game and put a few bucks on Oklahoma State straight up.
The Cowboys have won 7 straight games. They’ve gone 5-2 against the spread in those 7 games. In the head to head, the road team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings and these 2 teams play every season.
I think Oklahoma State could win this game straight up. But, I’m definitely taking the points.
Week 14 Upset Pick: Oklahoma State
#8 Penn State vs #7 Wisconsin
When: Saturday, Dec. 3 at 8:00 pm ET
Where: Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis, IN
Odds: Penn State +3
Analysis: No team has been hotter going down the stretch in the Big Ten than the Penn State Nittany Lions. Penn State handed Ohio State their only loss of the season. Since beating Ohio State, the Nittany Lions have gone 5-0 straight up and 5-0 against the spread.
I’m actually confused as to why Penn State isn’t favored in this match up. I know that Wisconsin has played the much tougher overall schedule. But the Badgers go into the Big Ten Championship game after having beaten Minnesota 31 to 17. Penn State absolutely demolished Michigan State 45 to 12 in their last.
I think the Nittany Lions win a tough one straight up. It’s incredible that Penn State has a chance to win the Big Ten after so many terrible seasons.
