College football Week 12 spread: LSU vs. Mississippi, Miami vs. Virginia Tech

Betting preview and point spread on the Week 12 college football games LSU vs. Mississippi and Miami vs. Virginia Tech.

College football Week 12 spread: LSU vs. Mississippi, Miami vs. Virginia Tech The first college football game from Week 12 we'll look into is the No.1 LSU (9-1) visiting the Mississippi Rebels (3-7) on Saturday.  Will the Tigers be able to hold to the No.1 spot? Absolutely, say the odds makers at Bodog Sports, who have listed the point spread on the LSU vs. Mississippi game at -19.5 points chalk the Tigers. Other than home field advantage, there is nothing working for the Rebels this weekend. LSU scores on average 39.3 points a game and allow only 16.7, while Mississippi allows 28.4 and scores 20.3 points on average per game. But these stats are about to be spoiled by the Tigers. LSU should have no problem beating the last in the SEC West and cover the -19.5 points spread at the same time. Betting odds on the LSU are -1400 and +900 on Mississippi at Bookmaker. LSU is 1-5-1 against the spread in its last 7 games, but Mississippi is 5-1 ATS in its last 6 games when playing LSU.

 Also on Saturday Miami (5-5) will visit No.10 Virginia Tech (8-2) for an all ACC game, in which the Virginia Tech Hokies have a bigger stake, trailing behind Virginia for the first spot. The bookies are confident that Miami has no surprises in its bag and at Bodog Sports the point spread on the Miami vs. Virginia Tech game is currently sitting at -17 points chalk the Hokies. Virginia Tech is 4-1 against the spread in its last 5 games and Miami is 1-5 ATS in its last 6 games.

 Offensively the Hurricanes edge on the Hokies with 346.7 yards per game, but Virginia Tech is converting the yards to points much better with 27.4 on average, compared to Miami at 21.9 points scored per game. To make matter worse, Miami will be without LBs Glenn Cook and Romeo Davis, RB Charlie Jones and WR Jermaine McKenzie, with DT Josh Holmes, DE Eric Moncor and CB Carlos Armour still questionable for Week 12 action. The Hokies have upgraded RBs Kenny Lewis and Branden Ore to probable, as well as wide receiver Eddie Royal. QB Sean Glennon is still questionable after a concussion and so is LB Vince Hall with wrist injury.
