The college football regular season is winding down. Week 12 is here and so are the free picks from our handicapping experts. This week we have 7 top picks from 7 nationally recognized sports handicappers. Without further delay, here are their selections.

George Smeader

Take Brigham Young Cougars

We will play the Brigham Young Cougars at -10. The Brigham Young Cougars stack up in our NCAAF system with a 6.0 rating. Our system is based on several years of experience, practice and fine tuning with solid year over year returns. Ratings are not multipliers on base unit betting. Our ratings system is on a 1-8 scale, but we will never release a play lower than a 5.9. More from George

Jimmy Boyd

Take Iowa Hawkeyes

Iowa has the big edge here. The Hawks have another nice Bowl game in store if they get their 7th win this week. Iowa will look to send its seniors out in style with a huge performance to close out the season. Iowa is 14-4 ATS vs. bad defensive teams who give up 31 or more points/game since 1992. Western Michigan is just 1-7 ATS in all games this season. Western Michigan has not covered the spread even once in its last 5 games and the Broncos are 0-4 ATS on grass this season. Iowa will be able to do whatever it wants to offensively, especially on the ground as the Broncos allow 239ypg on the road this season. More from Jimmy

Bill Young

Take Utah Utes

Utah is the most dominant team in the Mountain West Conference. They are coming off a 50-0 win over Wyoming as a 13-point favorite at home. New Mexico has a solid record, but don’t let it fool you. The Lobos lost their last road game 37-0 to the TCU Horned Frogs. This is the same TCU team that Utah beat 27-20 on the road. Utah is 6-0 in their last 6 games straight up. The Utes are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Utes are 26-9-1 ATS in their last 36 games after accumulating more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game. The Utes are 23-8 ATS in their last 31 games following a ATS win. The New Mexico Lobos are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. More from Bill

Steve Zukiel

Take Template Owls

The Temple Owls have played some solid football this season. They sit near the top of the conference and that is unbelievable. Now these two teams have played five common opponents this season. The Owls have gone 3-2 SU and 4-1 ATS, all as the underdog, while Kent has gone 1-4 SU and ATS all as the favorite. Both of these teams will be playing with their backup QB. In the case of Temple, their backup looked stunning against Penn State. In Kent's case, they will be down to their fourth string QB and he looked awful last week. I like how the Owls have looked and they are getting points at home. More from Steve

John Martin

Take Kansas Jayhawks

Kansas will blow the Iowa State Cyclones out of the water Saturday. Kansas beat ISU 41-10 last season on the road. Now they get ISU at home and it will get ugly in a hurry. The Jayhawks are 19-7 ATS in their last 26 home games. They are averaging a ridiculous 58 points a game at home. Iowa State is putting up just 19 points a game in all games this season. The Cyclones are 6-16 ATS in their last 22 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. The Jayhawks are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games as a home favorite. Kansas is for real this season and they will continue to prove it Saturday with an enormous massacre of Iowa State. More from John

Larry Cook

Take Minnesota Golden Gophers

The Minnesota Golden Gophers nearly pulled off the upset of Iowa last week in a 21-16 setback on the road. Minnesota gets Wisconsin at home this week. The Badgers will be overlooking the Badgers and their awful record this season. We will pounce on Minnesota because of it. The Badgers are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games as a road favorite of 10.5 or greater. The Golden Gophers are 20-7-1 ATS in their last 28 games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game. More from Larry

Jeff Alexander

Take Boise State Broncos

Boise State will slaughter 1-9 Idaho Saturday. Boise State is completely healthy, unlike most other teams this time of year, and it has resulted in stellar play this month with wins of 42-7 over San Jose State and 52-0 over Utah State. This win will be of the same variety where Idaho has trouble even making it past the 50 yard line. Boise State is 4-1 ATS at home in its last 5 games with Idaho and 6-3 ATS in its last 9 overall games with Idaho. Boise State is 22-5 ATS after scoring 31 points or more in 5 straight games since 1992, 17-2 ATS when the total is greater than or equal to 63 since 1992, and 47-13 ATS in the second half of the season since 1992.
