College football big spread: Boise State and Kansas leading the pack

The biggest point spread in Week 12 of college football is currently on the games Idaho vs. Boise State and Iowa State vs. Kansas.

College football big spread: Boise State and Kansas leading the pack We will start the Saturday college football Week 12 betting preview with the two games carrying the biggest point spread this weekend. First the top spread, Idaho (1-9) will visit No. 17 Boise State (9-1) and attempt to break the losing streak hanging over the team, which is the most unlikely event this weekend. At the online betting company Bodog Sports, the point spread on the Idaho vs. Boise State game is currently sitting at -34 points chalk the Broncos, which is a clear indication of the condition these two WAC teams are in. Last week Boise State ran over Utah State (0-10) for a 52-0 victory and the game against Idaho won't fall far, considering Boise State is playing at home. Broncos RB Jeremy Avery and LB Dallas Dobbs remain questionable for Week 12, but this will hardly affect the outcome of the game. Idaho is also the ultimate underdog by odds, posted at +4000 to win the game at Bookmaker, meaning the bookie will pay 4,000 for every 100 bet, granted Idaho wins. Keep in mind that Boise State is 5-2 against the spread in its last 7 games.

 The game between Iowa State (3-8) and No.4 Kansas (10-0) hold a slightly smaller spread, but not by much. At Bodog Sports the point spread on the Iowa State vs. Kansas is posted at -26.5 points chalk Kansas and with 45.9 points scored on average per game (second in the NCAA), the Jayhawks should have no problem covering the spread against Iowa State's 134th ranked defense. Iowa State is at the bottom and Kansas atop of the BIG 12 North and will stay that way after Week 12. If you are fan of the extreme betting, the odds on Iowa State to win the game at Bookmaker are sitting at +1400. Iowa State is 4-1 against the spread in its last 5 games and Kansas is 5-0 against the spread in its last 5 games.
