Week 12 college football opening lines: Stanford, Oklahoma State, Auburn big-game favorites

Brett Deering

Auburn and Miami are three-point favorites over Georgia and Duke, respectively.

Week 11 may have had the biggest matchups of the season yet, but there are still some important games in Week 12. As always, stick with OddsShark throughout the week for trends and shifts.

BCS contender Northern Illinois faces their toughest challenge of the year when they go up against Pete Lembo and a dynamic Ball State team. Miami is a three-point favorite over Duke, Oklahoma State is a two-point favorite over Texas and Auburn is a three-point favorite over Georgia in three of the week's marquee games.

Florida State holds the biggest line, as they are 38.5-point favorites over Syracuse, while Colorado/Cal is expected to be the closest game (the Buffaloes are one-point favorites).

Perhaps the most interesting line? Northwestern, losers of five straight, are favored over Michigan.
