No. 2 Alabama will likely need to win out to make an appearance in this year's College Football Playoff. It certainly cannot afford to slip up against No. 21 Arkansas on Saturday afternoon in the 3:30 p.m. ET SEC on CBS matchup. The Crimson Tide are 20.5-point favorites over the Razorbacks in the latest Week 12 college football odds at Caesars Sportsbook. Alabama has already been upset once this season, so should you be backing Arkansas in this game?

The Razorbacks are coming off consecutive wins over LSU and then-No. 17 Mississippi State. They were blown out by top-ranked Georgia earlier this year, though, so they might be one of the Week 12 college football spreads to avoid. Which lines should you build your Week 12 college football parlays around?

Top Week 12 college football expert predictions

One of Sallee's top college football picks for Week 12: He's backing No. 10 Wake Forest (+4.5) at Clemson in a noon ET kickoff in the ACC. 

The Demon Deacons have a chance to clinch the ACC Atlantic Division title on Saturday afternoon. They have been one of the highest-scoring teams in the country, averaging 44.7 points per game. Quarterback Sam Hartman ranks eighth nationally with 30 touchdown passes.

Wake Forest is facing a Clemson offense that has struggled under quarterback DJ Uiagalelei. His 107.4 passer rating ranks last in the ACC and he is going to be without his top target on Saturday, as wide receiver Justyn Ross is out with a foot injury. Clemson does not have a single senior starting this game and it only has two juniors making starts. 

"Offenses drive the bus in college football, and Clemson barely even has one," Sallee told SportsLine. "The Demon Deacons, however, are averaging 6.54 yards per play and can take the ACC Atlantic with a win. Clemson's spread record will get even worse after the Sam Hartman experience rolls through town."
