We’re headed into Week 12 of the college football schedule and there are plenty of intriguing matchups this week. Below, we give you five college football prop bet predictions based on the betting odds and lines from the BetMGM game menu.
College football prop bet predictions
Ohio State OVER 42.5 points (-115)
Ohio State has scored 139 points over its last three games for an average of 46.3 per game. The Buckeyes could have averaged more, but opposing offenses haven’t been able to keep up to push them. Ohio State is just far too explosive to be held under 40 points and its ceiling is a high as any team in college football right now.
Look for Indiana to score in the high-20s in this game and for the Buckeyes to potentially score 50 or more with Heisman-hopeful QB Justin Fields.
Wisconsin OVER 25.5 points (-129)
We’ve only seen the Wisconsin offense twice this season, but the Badgers have managed to score 45 and 49 points in those two games. They will be facing Northwestern’s strong defense Saturday, but look for them to have no problem scoring into the 30s in this Big Ten matchup.

OVER 29.5 first-half points for Oklahoma State-Oklahoma (-106)
Two of the best offenses in college football will face off against one another Saturday evening and you can bet on fireworks early between these two teams. Both sides are highly explosive and can score three or more touchdowns in any given quarter. Look for Oklahoma to do a lot of the heavy lifting early in this game and get to 20 points itself in the first half.
Special Colorado college football betting line! Bet $1 on the Oklahoma Sooners money line, WIN $100 (in free bets) if the Sooners score a touchdown in their matchup. Place your legal, online bets in Colorado at BetMGM, the King of Sportsbooks. Terms and conditions apply. Bet now!
UNDER 30.5 points for USC (-121)
Late Saturday night, USC will take on Utah in a huge Pac-12 battle. While we haven’t seen Utah yet this season, it was among the best defenses in college football last season. USC’s offense tends to have long periods where the Trojans struggle to score, and with inconsistent quarterback play, they can be frustrating to watch.
Look for the Utes to keep the Trojans Under 30 points by playing ball-control and sound defense to shorten this game.
Washington State +0.5 (-106) in the first quarter at Stanford
Want another fun late-night Pac-12 prop bet to consider? Take Washington State +0.5 in the first quarter as it is one of the fastest starting teams in college football. Opponents tend to catch up to the speed of the Cougars offense as the game goes along, but they’ll get off to a fast start and win the first quarter against an 0-2 Stanford team.
