  • Don't forget about betting underdogs on the moneyline when finalizing your Week 12 college football bets.
  • Three of our college football experts give their best moneyline underdog bets for Week 12.
  • If you're feeling lucky, a moneyline parlay of all three pays approximately 30-1.

Like we do each week, we’ll give out our favorite moneyline underdogs on the Week 12 college football card. Bet one that catches your eye, throw all three in a longshot parlay or just absorb some additional insight ahead of the weekend.

Two of the plays always come from Collin Wilson and me on The Action Network Colleges podcast — and college football contributor Locky Lockerson will provide the other.

We got two of three to the window last week with Tennessee and Temple, both at +180, bringing our YTD record to 13-19 +8.35 units.

Let’s move on to Week 12 with three late afternoon moneyline dogs that can hopefully bark for us. If you’re feeling lucky, a moneyline parlay of all three pays slightly better than 30-1.

Stuckey: Wake Forest +235 (vs. Pitt)

  • Spread: Pittsburgh -6.5 
  • Over/Under: 60.5
  • Time: Noon ET
  • TV: RSN

It’s a pretty similar spot on the surface for both teams. Pitt comes off a huge win over Virginia Tech in which it somehow averaged almost 14 yards per play. The Panthers won’t be lacking motivation, as they can clinch the ACC Coastal division with a win.

Wake Forest also comes in off a win, as it upset N.C. State to keep its hope of reaching a bowl game alive. The Demon Deacons will certainly have plenty of motivation in their last home game of the season where they can clinch a bowl appearance with a victory.

New quarterback Jamie Newman appears to have rejuvenated the Wake Forest offense. Don’t forget that Newman likely would have started Week 1 if he didn’t get hurt. The sophomore quarterback also brings another dynamic to the offense with his wheels — and Pitt has struggled to contain dual-threat quarterbacks this season.

On the other side of the ball, Wake Forest has struggled to defend explosiveness and opposing running backs, which does spell trouble against Pitt. However, I simply think this line is too high and should be closer to a coin flip. I see this playing out similar to Pitt’s road game against North Carolina — a shootout the Heels pulled out for their only win of the season.

It also doesn’t hurt that Wake had a few extra days of preparation after playing last Thursday night. Oh, and we get Greg Dortch on our side.
