Duke over 3.5 (need one more win, running out of racetrack)
FIU over 4.5 (pure stench….LOSER)
Washington over 8.5 (LOSER)
Kent St +1400 still in play. They’re tied with Miami Ohio on top of the MAC East. Those two teams face off in the final week of the regular season!
Houston +1300 is on a collision course for title game shot vs the greatest team of all time in Cincinnati.
Georgia +880 looks solid. Oklahoma +800 is now DEED.
San Diego St +1600 took down Nevada on Saturday and have one-game lead in the division. Gotta keep winning as Fresno St owns the tiebreaker and are just one game back.
Bryce Young +250 appears to have been a decent additional play added during the season. Matt Corral +3450 is having a phenomenal year but probably won’t have the stats or name recognition to win.
GOOD LUCK and ENJOY WEEK 12!
