College Football Week 12 Odds:
#6 Florida (5-1) at Vanderbilt (0-6). 12:00 p.m. ET
Spread: Florida -31.5
Over/Under: 68.5 points
Let’s get this out of the way. Vanderbilt is a terrible football team, but thankfully, the Commodores are located in Nashville, so they’ve got plenty of country bars nearby in which they can drown their sorrows and talk about their future divorces.
The Gators are 5-1 against the number in their last six road trips to Vandy, and it helps to have a quarterback like Kyle Trask. He continues his push for the Heisman Trophy after throwing for six touchdowns last week in a 63-35 victory over Arkansas.

#9 Indiana (4-0) at Ohio State (3-0). 12:00 p.m. ET
Moneyline: Ohio State -115, Indiana +650
Spread: Ohio State -20.5
Over/Under: 66.5 points
In a game that is perfectly 2020, we get one of the biggest games of the year in the Big Ten that features… Indiana! As good as the Hoosiers have been, they certainly aren’t being respected by the oddsmakers in this matchup, heavy underdogs despite being a Top 10 team.
Indiana is paced by dual-threat quarterback Michael Penix Jr., while Ohio State is led by star signal-caller Justin Fields. The Buckeyes have won 24 straight games in this series going back to a tie in 1990. The Hoosiers are 5-0 against the number in their last five meetings in Columbus.
The public is backing Ohio State ML with 53% of the early ML handle but Indiana to cover with 81% of the early spread handle.

#14 Oklahoma State (5-1) at Oklahoma (5-2). 7:30 p.m. ET
Moneyline: Oklahoma -278, Oklahoma State +205
Spread: Oklahoma -7
Over/Under: 59.5 points
One of the more underrated rivalries in college football takes place in Norman on Saturday night between Oklahoma State and Oklahoma, and maybe that’s because the Sooners have dominated this matchup, winning 18 out of the last 19 games.
Both teams have had two weeks to prepare and will try to win in different ways. Oklahoma State is 5-0 ATS in their last five games as a road underdog, and they’ll rely on their talented running back duo of Chuba Hubbard and L.D. Brown, while the Sooners want to throw the ball with star freshman Spencer Rattler.

Arizona (0-1) at Washington (1-0). 8:00 p.m. ET
Moneyline: Washington -455, Arizona +340
Spread: Washington -11.5
Over/Under: 53.5 points
Arizona has lost eight consecutive games going back to last season, but to the Wildcats’ credit, they almost shocked USC last Saturday before losing 34-30 with 25 seconds to play. Sophomore quarterback Grant Gunnell threw for 286 yards and three touchdowns and should only improve as the season progresses.
The Huskies got their first win under new head coach Jimmy Lake, holding on for a 27-20 victory against Oregon State. Freshman quarterback Dylan Morris was serviceable, though the Huskies would rather control the game on the ground. The Under is 5-0 in Washington’s last five games overall.

#20 USC (2-0) at Utah (0-0). 10:30 p.m. ET
Moneyline: USC -143, Utah +118
Spread: USC -3.5
Over/Under: 57.5 points
No team in the country has battled COVID-19 more than the Utah Utes, but Kyle Whittingham’s bunch finally gets to take the field on Saturday night against USC. The Utes still haven’t named a starting quarterback, and it’s a three-man race between Cam Rising, Jake Bentley, and Drew Lisk.
The Trojans continue to find ways to win games, putting together another miracle comeback last week against Arizona. USC is 0-4 ATS in its last four meetings in Utah, so the Trojans will need a strong performance from quarterback Kedon Slovis, who has thrown for 706 yards this season, with three touchdowns and one pick.
