College Football ATS Matchups to Exploit for Week 12

It's going to be tough to top last week's thrilling slate of games. While there's no matchup quite as enticing as the one between No. 1 LSU and No. 5 Alabama last Saturday, there are still plenty of marquee games on the schedule for college football's Week 12.

If you're looking to place a wager on this week's slate of games, here are three matchups that can potentially be exploited against the spread (ATS).

All betting lines, odds and spreads are available via FanDuel Sportsbook.

1. Massachusetts (+41) vs. Northwestern

The Northwestern Wildcats are averaging 11.1 points per game (PPG) this season, so they could struggle to reach 41 points here, let alone win by that many. The Massachusetts Minutemen aren't exactly an imposing opponent, sitting 1-9 on the year, but Northwestern has only scored more than 20 points in a single game twice this season.

2. No. 23 Navy (+7.5) vs. No. 17 Notre Dame

No. 23 Navy has impressed this season, jumping out to a 7-1 start. While No. 17 Notre Dame has historically dominated this matchup, winning eight of the last nine contests between these two, Navy has managed to at least keep things close recently. The Midshipmen have covered a 7.5-point spread in two of the last three matchups against the Fighting Irish, and have a chance to do so again come Saturday.

3. No. 2 Ohio State (-52.5) vs. Rutgers

Even without arguably the best player of the country in Chase Young, No. 2 Ohio State should dominate Rutgers here. Rutgers is 0-6 in conference play, and Ohio State just defeated Maryland, 73-13, in Week 11. With Rutgers coming in as the sixth-worst scoring defense in the country, Justin Fields and the Buckeyes could light up the scoreboard against the Scarlet Knights.
