NCAA Conference Finals - 2016 College Championship Betting Spread

College Football Week 14 Betting Picks The College football regular season is coming to a close, but that hardly means the party is over. You can find College football Week 14 odds, picks and previews at Gamblers Palace, which has you covered with accurate predictions and all the information you need to win big to get your bankroll beefed up for the bowl season.

For all College football predictions, updated NCAA football odds, as well as live scores, Gamblers Palace is where to bet college football online throughout the regular season and NCAA bowl season.

It’s Week 14, and that means its championship week of the college football campaign. If it’s winners you’re looking for, you best make it a point to read what all the Gamblers Palace writers have to say about the pivotal matchups going down after they dominated last season’s championship week.

Clemson took care of North Carolina in the ACC title game last year, but had to stave off a furious rally in the second half to pull out the 45-37 win and cover as 6.5-point favorites. The combined 82 points obliterated the 67.5-point closing total.

Alabama handled Florida with ease, winning the SEC title game 29-15, but their betting backers on the college football lines came away displeased after the Gators kicked the backdoor in with a late score in the fourth quarter to cover the 16.5-point spread. The score also pushed the combined score beyond the 38-point closing total. Brutal beats for Bama and under backers.

Iowa came 27 seconds away from pulling out an undefeated regular season, but it proved not to be when Michigan State punched the go ahead score in to win the Big Ten title game 16-13. The margin of victory pushed on the spread odds and the 29 points cashed under bettors’ tickets with ease.

The Pac-12 title game was close through the first 48 minutes of play between Stanford and USC, but the Cardinal went on to score the game’s final two touchdowns to secure a 41-22 win and cover as 5-point neutral field favorites. The game combined to squeak over the closing 59-point total.

Here’s our live odds and analysis below for every big game of the Week 14 college football odds slate.

NCAA Football - Friday, December 2, 2016

There are only a handful of games left in this season, but there's still oh so much left to decide in the land of college football. Ironically, it's the SEC Championship Game that means the least, as we can't imagine Alabama not getting into the CFP at this point even with a loss. That leaves just two spots left to be claimed if you assume that Ohio State has done enough as well.

The teams that are under the gun are clearly Clemson and Washington. The Tigers probably have the easiest route left on the docket, as they have to play against Virginia Tech in Orlando in the ACC Championship Game. Washington has the more difficult path and the most uncertainty at that. The Huskies are playing against Colorado, a team that also thinks that it has a chance to reach the playoff.

But if the Huskies lose, is there a guarantee as to who's next in line for that last playoff spot? We're not sure. The Big Ten Championship Game should be interesting as well. It's the last game of the night, and Wisconsin and Penn State will know what's happened with Washington already since the Pac-12 title game is on Friday night. Even if the Huskies win though, could either of these teams get into the show? PSU would have the Big Ten title and a win over Ohio State to its credit, and that would be a tough resume to keep out of the Top 4.

And then there's Bedlam. Oklahoma and Oklahoma State both have faint hopes for reaching the CFP as well, and they'll both need Washington to lose for sure to have any hopes whatsoever of getting there. Both of these teams are undefeated since September, but they both suffered two losses in the first month of the year. The away team has won three straight in this series and has covered by at least three TDs in each instance.

Western Michigan vs. Ohio, Ford Field - 7 p.m. ET ( ESPN2 )

Opening Line: Western Michigan -19

Preview: Heading into the MAC Championship Game here in Week 14 of the college football schedule, the Western Michigan Broncos are the only college football team outside of the Crimson Tide to remain undefeated. They’ll look to go 13-0 when they meet the Ohio Bobcats in Detroit for the conference crown. A big win could provide the Broncos with a ticked to the Cotton Bowl. Continue...

Colorado vs. Washington, Levi's Stadium - 9 p.m. ET ( FOX )

Opening Line: Washington -7.5

Preview: It’s almost unbelievable, but the Colorado Buffaloes are set to take on the Washington Huskies in Week 14 of the college football schedule as they battle for the Pac-12 Conference crown. Colorado is making their inaugural appearance in the conference championship bout just one season after a 1-8 conference record. Can the Cinderella season continue? Continue...

NCAA Football - Saturday, December 9, 2016

Kansas State at TCU, Amon G. Carter Stadium - 12 p.m. ET ( FS1 )

Opening Line: TCU -4.5

Preview: Both the Kansas State Wildcats and TCU Horned Frogs are looking to build some momentum in their Week 14 regular season finale as both are bowl-eligible already. While these teams are really close overall, it’s the Wildcats that’ve been the more consistent team as their recent success has been the result of an improved offense taking away some of the burden for the defense. Continue...

Troy at Georgia Southern, Allen E. Paulson Stadium - 12 p.m. ET ( ESPN2 )

Opening Line: Troy -8

Preview: The argument could be made that the Troy Trojans are the best team in the Sun Belt this year. They pushed Clemson to the wire, and a 35-3 loss to Arkansas State two weeks ago seems like a big fluke now. However, they can't win the Sun Belt title without the Red Wolves losing in Week 14, but that won't make this game against the Georgia Southern Eagles any less important. Finishing with 10 wins for any team is a big accomplishment, and Troy has the opportunity to do just that on the last day of the regular season. Continue...

Temple at Navy, Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium - 12 p.m. ET ( ABC )

Opening Line: Navy -2.5

Preview: The Navy Midshipmen have once again tormented all AAC opposition that stood before them with a punishing ground assault that left opposing defensive coordinator’s heads spinning. That won’t be the case on Saturday afternoon in the AAC championship game against the Temple Owls who just so happen to possess one of the best defenses in the country led by Phil Snow. It will be strength versus strength in Week 14 and something will have to give. Continue...

Louisiana Tech at Western Kentucky, L.T. Smith Stadium - 12 p.m. ET ( ESPN )

Opening Line: Western Kentucky -7.5

Preview: The Louisiana Tech Bulldogs and Western Kentucky Hilltoppers enter play in very different positions as the Bulldogs need to bounce back after snapping their seven game winning streak while the Toppers are fresh off a 60-6 win. These two teams will meet in a rematch of an earlier game that saw LA Tech get the win here in the Conference USA title game as part of an exciting Week 14 of college football. Continue...

Oklahoma State at Oklahoma, Memorial Stadium - 12:30 p.m. ET ( FOX )

Opening Line: Oklahoma -12.5

Preview: In all likelihood, the Big XII isn't going to ultimately factor into the College Football Playoff. But if either the Oklahoma State Cowboys or Oklahoma Sooners can make an emphatic statement in Week 14, they'll at least have a shot of making their case to the CFP Selection Committee. Continue...

New Mexico State at South Alabama, Ladd-Peebles Stadium - 1 p.m. ET ( ESPN3 )

Opening Line: South Alabama -11

Preview: Things really turned out just fine for the South Alabama Jaguars. They were bought out of their game originally scheduled against Florida, and as a result, they got a win over Presbyterian they otherwise wouldn't have had. Now, they've got five wins and have already gotten their waiver to play in a bowl game in spite of the fact that they've beaten two FCS teams. Can they take advantage and claim that sixth win over the New Mexico State Aggies to close out the year in Week 14? Continue...

Louisiana Lafayette at Louisiana Monroe, Malone Stadium - 3 p.m. ET ( ESPN3 )

Opening Line: Louisiana Lafayette -7

Preview: The Louisiana Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns have one more shot to get into a bowl game this year. They're sitting at 5-6 heading into their last game of the season against their rivals, the Louisiana Monroe Warhawks, and a win in this one on the road in Week 14 would be sweet on so many levels, not the least of which is extending their season by another couple weeks. Continue...

Baylor at West Virginia, Milan Puskar Stadium - 3:30 p.m. ET ( FS1 )

Opening Line: West Virginia -16

Preview: Had this matchup been slated for earlier in the season we may have had a vastly different outlook, but with the Baylor Bears hitting the road to wrap up the regular season against the West Virginia Mountaineers, they’ll be bringing a disappointing losing streak with them that seems likely to continue through this Week 14 showdown. Continue...

Alabama vs. Florida, Georgia Dome - 4 p.m. ET ( CBS )

Opening Line: Alabama -21.5

Preview: After clinching the championship game berth early and nabbing an inspiring victory over a tough LSU team, the Florida Gators looked poised to close out the season strong against FSU and head into Saturday’s championship game against the Alabama Crimson Tide in Week 14 with some confidence. That plan, however, was knocked out when the Seminoles beat Florida in commanding fashion, handling the defense with relative ease. The Tide have a much better offense—and team all around—if they follow a similar game plan, this could be a difficult game to watch for Florida fans. Continue...

Georgia State at Idaho, Kibbie Dome - 5 p.m. ET ( ESPN3 )

Opening Line: Idaho -6.5

Preview: The Idaho Vandals are getting set to drop to FCS football after so many years in the top flight, but they fact of the matter is that they're having a great penultimate season in the FBS. They've got seven wins already, are going to a bowl game for just the third time in their history, and are heavily favored over the Georgia State Panthers in Week 14 to end their regular season. Continue...

Arkansas State at Texas State, Bobcat Stadium - 7:30 p.m. ET ( ESPN2 )

Opening Line: Arkansas State -23.5

Preview: The results haven't been overly pretty for the Arkansas State Red Wolves. The started off their year at 0-4, rallied to win six straight games, and now, are on the verge of the Sun Belt championship. They lost their first opportunity to clinch the league title last week against ULL, but they've got a second chance in Week 14 against the Texas State Bobcats, the only team in this conference without a league victory. Continue...

San Diego State at Wyoming, War Memorial Stadium - 7:45 p.m. ET ( ESPN2 )

Opening Line: San Diego State -6

Preview: Due to a number of teams sucking out at the tail end of the regular season, the San Diego State Aztecs and Wyoming Cowboys will battle one another in the 2016 Mountain West championship game. These teams played to a thrilling 34-33 final only a couple weeks ago in a drama packed game that went down to the wire. If this Week 14 tilt mimics the way that went down, grab your popcorn and get ready for a slugfest! Continue...

Clemson vs. Virginia Tech, Camping World Stadium - 8 p.m. ET ( ABC )

Opening Line: Clemson -9.5

Preview: The ACC’s Atlantic Division champion Clemson Tigers are well positioned for what should be a brush up performance against the weaker Coastal Division champs: the Virginia Tech Hokies. These two teams will meet up on Saturday in the ACC Championship Game as one of the prime time matchups in this college football Week 14 action. Continue...

Wisconsin vs. Penn State, Lucas Oil Stadium - 8 p.m. ET ( FOX )

Opening Line: Wisconsin -3

Preview: With losses by Clemson or Washington in their conference title games, the winner of this battle between the Wisconsin Badgers and Penn State Nittany Lions could be in position to earn a spot in the College Football Playoffs. With more than just bragging rights and the conference crown at play, there will be plenty of motivation for both teams as they square off in the Big Ten Championship Game here in college football’s Week 14. Continue...
