Pac-12 Week 12 Prop Bet Preview: Oregon Triumvirate Will Cash

After reviewing the NCAA football spreads this weekend, I began focusing on correlated prop bets in the Pac-12. I landed on the Oregon/Arizona State game where I found plenty of value in my college football picks on Saturday.

Here’s a look at some NCAA football odds to consider!

Bo Nix Poised to Burn Devils

Bo Nix has tossed 29 touchdowns, tied with USC’s Caleb Williams for most in the Pac-12 this season, and Nix has gone over the posted TD Passes prop in 5 of his last 7 games.

We should also note Nix has thrown eight touchdowns over his last two games and on Saturday he is facing a middling Arizona State pass defense, ranked 45th and allowing 196 yards per game. Meanwhile, Nix commands the No. 1 scoring offense in the nation, averaging 46.3 points per game, and the No. 2 passing offense, averaging nearly 339 yards per contest.

This should be easy pickings for Nix and his stable of talented receivers, which is why I am correlating my props because if Nix is going to be passing early and often then his wideouts will be the beneficiaries. Go over 2½ TD Passes for Bo Nix in your college football predictions.

College Football Pick: Nix Over 2 ½ (-136) TD Passes

Franklin Goes High Again

Troy Franklin is the No. 1 receiver in the nation’s most prolific scoring offense and has gone Over Total Receiving Yards in his last four road games. The rangy junior out of East Palo Alto, California, averages over 109 receiving yards per game and although he had a season-low two receptions last week against USC, he still wound up with 147 yards in Oregon’s 36-27 victory.

This Sun Devils defense will be easy for Franklin to beat. Whether they play a zone or man-to-man, no ASU defensive back can cover Franklin. Even on jump balls, Franklin has a major advantage due to his 6-foot-3 frame and leaping ability.

Naturally, the major online sports betting sites are harnessing him with the highest receiving yardage total but I believe he is up to the task. And let’s also note that as high as this total is (92½), Franklin’s average is nearly 17 yards per game higher.

College Football Pick: Franklin Over 92 ½ (-113) Receiving Yards

Don’t Forget About James

As long as we’ve got Oregon’s pass/catch combo in our props, why not complete the trifecta and go with the Ducks’ running game? Although Bucky Williams is the straw that stirs the drink in Oregon’s backfield, there is another power runner in the mix and his name is Jordan James.

In fact, James averages more yards per carry than Williams, 7.4 vs. 6.8, and averages 57 yards per contest only because Williams gets the lion’s share of the work. However, the total is low enough in the NCAA football betting lines that I’ve been viewing where I don’t think Jordan’s lack of carries will hurt him here against Arizona State’s pedestrian run-stop unit.
