  • We’ve made it to championship weekend.
  • Across college football, teams are getting ready for their biggest game of the year, hoping to win their conference and for some, earn a spot in the College Football Playoff.
  • This week, we’re backing Alabama, Clemson, and Oklahoma all to cover the spread in their conference title games.

College football season has made it to championship weekend.

After a thrilling year of college football action, conference championships will settle scores between old foes and give the teams at the top one final chance to prove themselves to the selection committee for a spot in the College Football Playoff.

It also happens to give bettors some chances to add to their bankrolls just in time for holiday shopping.

Take a look below for our seven best bets of the Week 12 college football slate (* indicates home team).

LAST WEEK: 4-3
OVERALL: 45-42-4

Alabama (-13.5) over Georgia

Georgia is good enough that if Alabama didn’t exist, they’d likely be a lock for the playoff and second-favorites behind Clemson to win it all.

But Alabama does exist, and in their current iteration, they exist as an unstoppable force of football prowess. Even if the Bulldogs can keep things close through the majority of the game, Bama always seems to find a way to win by 20.

Clemson (-27.5) over Pittsburgh

In 2016 Pittsburgh spoiled Clemson’s shot at a perfect season with a shocking 43-42 victory in Death Valley, but I wouldn’t count on another upset for the ages this weekend.

The Tigers have been beating their lesser opponents with ease so far this season, and while this is nominally a conference championship game, the Panthers have done very little to impress this year. Clemson will run them out of the building.

Northwestern (+14.5) over Ohio State

Northwestern has played up for big games all season, taking down Michigan State, Iowa, and Wisconsin while all three teams were ranked, and playing Michigan and Notre Dame close.

Ohio State is coming off of a huge win over Michigan that has them overvalued in the eyes of the public, juicing this line a bit further than where it should probably be set.

Only one of these teams beat Purdue, and it wasn’t the Buckeyes.
