ATS select for every conference championship game

College football expert picks up against disparity for every Top 25 Week 13 game with a hectic week featuring Ohio State-Michigan and more.

The conference championship games are upon us and we have some monstrous contests to choose our college football experts against the contagion to be in. Georgia vs. Alabama in the SEC Championship Game, Michigan vs. Iowa in the Big Ten Championship Game, and more will capture the imaginations of fans as well as bettors. And we’re here to guide you through the latter part of that equation, as we’ve done throughout the season.

If nothing else, we’ve been consistent throughout the head-to-head week, going 12-11 both on spread and betting on totals. That puts us in 120-130-4 over the spread and 134-116-4 on the total for a 254-246-8 record for the year. Now, we’re trying to take everything we’ve learned from that and apply it to these games for the championship.

Previously, with our college football expert’s pick against disparity, we pointed to the top 25 blocking vehicles from the bottom to the top of the leaderboard. However, for the conference championship games, we’ll put them in chronological order to really get in on the fun.

College football expert picks against contagion for conference championship games

Conference-USA Championship Match: Western Kentucky (-3.0) vs. UTSA – Under 73.0 (Friday)

Despite the fact that the Roadrunners were undefeated heading into the final week of the regular season, they’ve receded. Now, with the quarterback’s injury, Western Kentucky’s powerful offensive will one day happen – but UTSA’s commitment to the running game will slow it down enough for the underdogs to hit.

Pac-12 Championship Match: Oregon vs. Utah (-2.5) – Over 58.0 (Friday)

There is almost no chance this match will play out like the previous one, it was a match in favor of the Utes. Oregon will prepare better but I still think Utah’s defense is good enough to keep Anthony Brown at key moments and get a solid win. With that said, we should look at scoring more balanced to help preemptively.

MAC Championship: Kent State (-3.0) vs Northern Illinois – Under 74.0

Northern Illinois is a team that by the numbers isn’t as good as their record. They won a lot of games with odd scores to get here. Kent State is the better team and, although these teams combined for more than 100 points in the first meeting, I think the stakes keep the score down a bit more.

Big 12 Championship Game: Baylor (+5.0) vs Oklahoma State – Over 46.5

Understanding that defense will be played at a high level in this game – a change of pace for the Big 12 – I think we will see enough points to be achieved with a low total. As for the game, I just think these teams are putting together and Dave Aranda will have enough answers to keep this match in goal.

Mountain West Championship: Wyoming (+5.5) vs San Diego State – Over 49.5

We’ve seen that San Diego State thrives on defense and special operations teams, but the sneaky truth is that they can be done via air. While Wyoming crossing offense is inconsistent, it’s potentially explosive. I saw the Aggies play their best game and score in a clip the Aztecs couldn’t stand.

Sun Belt Championship: Appalachian State (-2.5) vs Louisiana – Under 53.0

Despite the fact that the Ragin’ Cajuns won easily the first time these teams met, the Appalachian Bang just seemed to be the better team on paper. Furthermore, their dribbling ability could attack a Louisiana weakness, allowing them to control the game, slow the tempo of the underdogs, and deliver a victory for the Climbers.

SEC Championship Match: Georgia (-6.5) vs. Alabama – Under 49.5

Yes, Nick Saban already owns Kirby Smart. However, the fact of the matter is that I don’t think it matters. This iteration of Alabama is overrated and will be dominated by Georgia in the trenches, just as the Bulldogs did with everyone throughout the season. It may not be a certified hit but it should be a comfortable profit for Dawgs and Smart to get through.

AAC Championship Match: Houston vs. Cincinnati (-10.5) – Above 53.5

Honestly, I don’t like either side in this game. Cincinnati has been erratic and Houston has rolled but against one of the strongest points of the schedule in college football. I picked the Bearcats because they were the better team, and as a result it was tempting to score goals in junk time in Houston with Cincy being huge.

Big Ten Championship Match: Iowa vs. Michigan (-11.0) – Under 43.5

The only thing that scares me about Michigan is any emotion in the Ohio State game. All told, though, I don’t see a way that Iowa offense is mostly done in this game. The Wolverines should absolutely dominate both sides of the ball in something like a 30-7 punch to their playoff ticket.

ACC Championship: Wake Forest (+3.0) vs Pittsburgh – Over 71.5

While I’ve always been underwhelmed in conference championship games, that’s not the case here. This will be a thrilling shootout. In that kind of confrontation, I will always be the loser because of the difference that situation makes. Pitt might be the better team overall, but give me a wake up call to complete their dream season.
