Expert Picks Podcast: Best of Top 25 action picked against the spread
Chip Patterson, Tom Fornelli and Jerry Hinnen break down all the CBS Sports Expert Picks on the Eye On College Football Podcast.
With conference title races winding down, the Top 25 slate features several games that will decide who earns an automatic bid to the final year of the BCS. Can Texas Longhorns continue its undefeated start to Big 12 play or will Oklahoma State become Baylor Bears 's top competition with a win in Austin? Georgia Bulldogs is finally getting healthy, but Auburn Tigers 's offense has been clicking on all cylinders under Nick Marshall recently. We also discuss Duke Blue Devils 's unlikely run at an ACC Coastal title, and question whether it will come to an end when Miami visits on Saturday.
So kick back, relax and enjoy our preview of the best Week 12 action. Come for the picks, but stick around for "Locks and Quarantines," our way of breaking down the best bets and games you should avoid at all costs.
