SportPundit College Football Predictions for Week 12 of the 2019 NCAA Division I FBS Season

College Football Predictions for Week 12 of the 2019 NCAA Division I FBS Season

Our cumulative FBS prognostication record for 2019 after Week 11 is:
493-159 in calling the winner (76%)
320-319-13 against the spread, and
313-319-9 against the over/under ("total").


If possible, we compete against the quoted opening odds ("the line", "the spread") as available online (e.g. Vegas Insider, OddsShark, Sportsline, 5Dimes, CFPT), and which can vary, so we have no fixed system of which portals we use. We do our predictions for fun and we are not affiliated with any service or institution.

Caveat Emptor! Please do not use our predictions for wagering. We disclaim any and all liability for anyone's use of our materials and prognostications, nor do we make any warranties as to accuracy. Our prognostication hobby helps us to keep track of news and sports all over America. We are not in this for the money. May the best team win.

Our prognostications are based on our own rankings of all FBS football teams, as made after the 11th week of play.


Tuesday, November 12, 2019
We compete against the opening line, if possible, not the updated line....

Western Michigan at Ohio
The Bobcats were favored over the Broncos by 1 point at VegasInsider while the Broncos were listed as the spread consensus over the Bobcats by 1 point at Oddsshark, with an opening line of 1.5 points favoring Western Michigan. 
The over/under (predicted total score) was 64.5 points.
Our Call: 37-34 for Western Michigan.
Our own rankings put Western Michigan at a rating of -2.24 and Ohio at -2.60, an advantage of 3.6 points for the Broncos. If we take the standard three points as the Ohio home field advantage, then this would make the game nearly even. Kambour, however, calculates the Ohio home field advantage as only 0.8432 points. In addition, non-Saturday games can draw large TV audiences and teams seem to perform differently in that kind of limelight. Besides, we have historically often been off the mark on MAC game results, so, who knows!?
Result: ??.

Eastern Michigan at Akron
The Eagles were favored over the Zips by 17 points.
The over/under (predicted total score) was 49 points.
Our Call: 35-17 for Eastern Michigan. Our rankings rate Eastern Michigan at -2.95 and Akron at -4.99e, i.e. somewhere beyond that limit mark. Kambour calculates the Zips' home field advantage as 2.3312 points. Akron has had a 0-9 winless season thus far under 1st year head coach Tom Arth and its best loss is by 8 points to FBS next-to-last-ranked UMass. Akron is ranked last. Former Zips head coach Terry Bowden (4-8 at Akron in 2018) is currently an assistant at Clemson. Chris Creighton in 2014 became the head coach at Eastern Michigan, 2-10 in 2013, 4-5 this year, with e.g. a 34-31 win over Big Ten Illinois.

Wednesday, November 13, 2019
We compete against the opening line, if possible, not the updated line....

Bowling Green at Miami of Ohio
The RedHawks were favored over the Falcons by 18.5 points.
The over/under (predicted total score) was 52 points.
Our Call: 34-13 for Miami.
Our rankings rate the RedHawks at -2.66 and the Falcons at 4.82, equivalent to ca. 21 points. Miami of Ohio is known as the cradle of coaches and was also the alma mater of the NFL Steelers' Super Bowl champion QB Ben Roethlisberger. The RedHawks' current football head coach, Chuck Martin, came to Miami via Notre Dame and after previously winning NCAA Division II football championships at Grand Valley State. This year Miami of Ohio could win the MAC East Division title.
Result: ??.

Northern Illinois at Toledo
The Rockets were favored over the Huskies by 2.5 points.
The over/under (predicted total score) was 55 points.
Our Call: 30-27 for Toledo. Our rating for the Huskies is -2.73 and for the Rockets -2.86, equivalent to 1.3 scoreboard points. The Toledo defense is weaker but the Huskies' offense is weaker, so who prevails?

Friday, November 15, 2019

Louisiana Tech at Marshall
The Thundering Herd were favored over the Bulldogs by 3 points.
The over/under (predicted total score) was 57.5 points.
Our Call: 31-30 for Louisiana Tech. Our rating for Louisiana Tech is -2.01 and for Marshall -2.06, equivalent to a difference of 0.5 scoreboard points.

Result: ??.

Saturday, November 16, 2019
We compete against the opening line, if possible, not the updated line.... However, there is some opening line divergence this week between the various services and hence we lean toward half-point odds, which permit no ties.

Indiana at Penn State
The Nittany Lions were favored over the Hoosiers by 14 points.
The over/under (predicted total score) was 55 points.
Our Call: 31-23 for Penn State. Our rating for Penn State is +0.16 and for Indiana -0.95, equivalent to a difference of 11.1 scoreboard points.
Result: ??.

Kansas at Oklahoma State
The Cowboys were favored over the Jayhawks by 17 points.
The over/under (predicted total score) was 65 points.
Our Call: 41-27 for Oklahoma State. Our rating for Oklahoma State is +0.00 and for Kansas -1.24, equivalent to a difference of 12.4 scoreboard points.
Result: ??.

Florida at Missouri
The Gators were favored over the Tigers by 7 points.
The over/under (predicted total score) was 48 points.
Our Call: 27-24 for Florida. Our rating for Florida is +0.84 and for Missouri -0.62, equivalent to a difference of 14.6 scoreboard points. Kambour calculates the Missouri home field advantage at 7.6146 points. That makes 7 ... the line. To decide whether to go above or below that we could look at actual performance, the net average yards per play advantage ("NAYPPA"), uncalibrated by schedule difficulty, since schedule difficulty ranking is less objective than raw ypp. Florida has a NAYPPA of +1.44 and Missouri a NAYPPA of +1.09, a difference of only 3.5 scoreboard points. On the other hand, we rank Florida's schedule diffulty as an adjusted "20th" while MasseyRatings for FBS teams ranks Florida's schedule difficulty as "8th", which would put Florida's adjusted SD at +1.20, giving a difference of 18.2 scoreboard points to Mizzou, so one could go either way.
Result: ??.

Alabama State (FCS) at Florida State
The Seminoles were favored over the Hornets by 40.5 points.
The over/under (predicted total score) was 53 points.
Our Call: 45-7 for Florida State. For games involving FBS and FCS teams, we look among other things to team rankings in MasseyRatings Division I rankings, where Florida State is ranked at 59th and FCS Alabama State at 222nd, just a few places above FBS UMass (230th) and Akron (231st), both of which we rate at -4.99e (i.e. somewhere beyond -4.99). Compare Florida State at 50th in our own rankings with a rating of -0.97, a difference of 40.2 or more scoreboard points to -4.99e. Sometimes it is quite amazing via these calculations that we nevertheless come so close to the "line", here set at 40.5 points. The Hornets won-loss recod this season is 5-4 with an average opponent rank of 238th as opposed to Florida State's 42nd. Alabama State kept close to UAB in losing 24-19 early in the season so we go under 40 in our call of the score. 
Result: ??.

Massachusetts at Northwestern
The Wildcats were favored over the Minutemen by 39.5 points.
The over/under (predicted total score) was 56.5 points.
Our Call: 41-7 for Northwestern. Our rating for Northwestern is -1.77 and for Massachusetts -4.99e, equivalent to a difference of 32.2 or more scoreboard points. We rank UMass 129th out of 130 FBS teams.
Result: ??.

Alabama at Mississippi State
The Crimson Tide were favored over the Bulldogs by 21 points.
The over/under (predicted total score) was 62.5 points.
Our Call: 44-20 for Alabama. Our rating for Alabama is +2.20 and for Mississippi State -0.94, equivalent to a difference of 31.4 scoreboard points, minus the Mississippi State home field advantage, which Kambour calculates as 7.3010 points. That makes 24. The average yards per play stat total per team (offense plus defense) of 11 we equate with 55 scoreboard points per game (5x11). An average ypp stat total per team of 12.5 as here we calculate as manifesting more scoreboard points than average, for this game approximately 5x12.5 = 62.5 points, matching the betting over/under. We then look to find a reasonable score matching those figures.
Result: ??.

Michigan State at Michigan
The Wolverines were favored over the Spartans by 14 points.
The over/under (predicted total score) was 45 points.
Our Call: 27-14 for Michigan. Our rating for Michigan is +0.31 and for Michigan State -0.26, which we calculate as equivalent to a difference of 5.7 scoreboard points. Another big game in the Big House, for which Kambour calculates a home field advantage of 7.5508 scoreboard points. That makes 13.2508 scoreboard points.
Result: ??.

VMI (FCS) at Army
The Black Knights were favored over the Keydets by 34.5 points.
The over/under (predicted total score) was 62.5 points.

Result: ??.

TCU at Texas Tech
The Horned Frogs were favored over the Red Raiders by 1.5 points.
The over/under (predicted total score) was 56.5 points.
Our Call: 34-27 for TCU. Our rating for TCU is -0.23 and for Texas Tech -1.32, equivalent to a difference of ca. 11.1 scoreboard points, minus the Red Raiders' home field advantage, calculated by Kambour as 3.4798 points, makes 11.1 minus 3.48 = ca. 7.6 scoreboard points.
Result: ??.

Wisconsin at Nebraska
The Badgers were favored over the Cornhuskers by 13 points.
The over/under (predicted total score) was 51 points.
Our Call: 31-17 for Wisconsin. Our rating for Wisconsin is +0.35 and for Nebraska -1.37, equivalent to a difference of 17.2 scoreboard points, minus the Huskers' home field advantage -- calculated by Kambour as 1.2432, but, as a Nebraska alum, we go for the standard 3 points here.
Result: ??.

UTEP at UAB

The over/under (predicted total score) was 45.5 points.
Our Call: 41-7 for UAB.

The Cougars were favored over the Bengals by ?? points.

Our Call: 31-13 for BYU. Our rating for BYU is -0.61, 38th in FBS. MasseyRatings has Idaho State ranked 183rd in the overall Division I rankings (FBS + FCS combined). Utah beat BYU 30-12 early in the yeear, and the Bengals lost to Utah 31-0 early in the season, but seem to have weakened since then, losing 48-5 to Eastern Washington in their last game.
Result: ??.

Louisiana Monroe at Georgia Southern

The over/under (predicted total score) was 58 points.
Our Call: 36-26 for Georgia Southern. Our rating for Georgia Southern is -2.69 and for Louisiana Monroe -3.12, equivalent to a difference of 4.3 scoreboard points. Kambour calculates 5.6708 points as the Eagles' home field advantage.

Kombour's home field advantage for Clemson is a minus -2.5900 points, makes 23.51 points.The yards per play stats add up to 11.56 for Clemson and 11.57 for Wake Forest, an intersting confluence. 11.56 x 5 = ca. 58 total, predicted total score.
Result: ??.

Virginia Tech at Georgia Tech

Our Call: 27-26 for Virginia Tech. Our rating for Georgia Tech is -1.99 and for Virginia Tech -2.03, equivalent to a difference of 0.4 scoreboard points. Kambour appears to calculate home field advantage by how teams perform as related to the betting spread. He gives Georgia Tech 4.9308 points. If that relates to the present betting line, then 5.5 minus 4.9308 would see an advantage of 0.5692 points to Virginia Tech. So we have a draw, as it were.
Result: ??.

Ohio State at Rutgers
The Buckeyes were favored over the Scarlet Knights by 50.5 points.
