College Football Week 14 Upset Predictions & Picks | Biggest Upsets for Week 14

If you followed along with our upset picks last week, you did well. In fact, you did very well.

I had Minnesota (+220) over Wisconsin and LSU (+210) over Texas A&M. Both cashed, which is how you want to end college football’s final full slate of games.

This week, we’re setting our sights on conference championships and one leftover football game before we dive headfirst into bowl season.

Here are this week’s upsets, as we go hunting one last time before bowl season. And here’s to tapping into last weekend’s glorious momentum.

All NCAAF gameday odds are current as of 10:30 a.m. ET on Thursday, December 2. 

CFB Week 14 Upset: No. 10 Oregon (+2.5) at No. 17 Utah

They played a few weeks ago, and it wasn’t pretty.

Utah clobbered Oregon at home, easily covering the three-point spread. While that might prompt some to overreact and jump on the Utes, the Pac-12 Championship Game might not be that simple.

Quarterback Anthony Brown is capable of guiding Oregon to a much better result. He struggled against the Utes in the previous game, although playing in lovely Las Vegas — a neutral site — should change things drastically.

On Utah’s side, Tavion Thomas is on a roll. The Utes’ star running back has become a touchdown machine. If Oregon can slow him down, Oregon can win.

That’s the blueprint.

Prediction: Oregon 34, Utah 27

Oregon +1.5 First Half (-115) at Caesars

Wager: 1 Unit

The Ducks get off to a much better start, especially offensively, and lead Utah at halftime. Do not overreact to one game.

Sometimes, it just isn’t your day.

CFB Week 14 Upset: No. 16 Wake Forest (+3) at No. 15 Pittsburgh  

It’s possible, perhaps even likely, that this will wind up being the best game of the weekend.

The ACC Championship Game features two teams that will not make the College Football Playoff. It also features two of the top five scoring offenses in the country.

This is a nice way of saying you should absolutely be paying attention to this matchup.

Quarterbacks Kenny Pickett and Sam Hartman are explosive, and they will both make plays in this game. Both offenses should score plenty — and I’ll get to that — although Wake Forest has been a resilient team all season.

Both teams have covered the spread in the two of the past three games, and both have done so with a healthy deluge of points. That is almost certainly to be the case once again, which is why you must watch.

Still, having just given head coach Dave Clawson a long-term extension — one that was well earned — I believe Wake Forest delivers and wins the ACC.

Prediction: Wake Forest 44, Pittsburgh 41

Over 71.5 Points (-110) at Caesars

CFB Week 14 Upset: USC (+4) at California

This game will not decide a conference championship. Let’s be clear out of the gate.

When USC and Cal meet on Saturday, both teams will say farewell to forgettable seasons.

USC fired former head coach Clay Helton months ago. In fact, he has since been hired for another job. Cal recently scored just three points against Arizona, which doesn’t require much else in terms of description.

But the game, which was originally set to be played in November before being postponed due to COVID, will be played amid a myriad of madness. And USC, fresh off hiring head coach Lincoln Riley, will likely try to make an impression.

The Trojans battled against BYU last week, and I expect that effort to carry over. While USC lost, we saw a glimpse into the future and the potential with young QB Jaxson Dart. We will see more potential this week.

Prediction: USC 30, Cal 24

USC +3 First Half (-115) at Caesars 

Wager: 1 Unit

Last week’s game against BYU showed us that the Trojans still have some firepower. They pick up where they left off.

NFL Betting News

  • Early money slightly leaning towards the over in the 49ers-Rams matchup

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting good two-way action on the over/under for the NFC Championship Game matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the over of 46 points has attracted 55% of the bets and 60% of the money thus far. Much moreso than the AFC Championship Game, the betting splits on the point spread and total in this game are much more evenly split, so the sportsbook does not have too much liability on either at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Los Angeles's -170 moneyline odds have attracted 60% of the bets and 70% of the money.

  • Early bettors give slight lean to the Rams over the 49ers

    Based on the betting splits at DraftKings Sportsbook, the favored Los Angeles Rams are getting slightly more betting attention in their matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, Los Angeles's -3.5 point spread has received 65% of the bets and 61% of the handle thus far. Bettors are clearly torn in this matchup considering the Rams have arguably been playing better football through the first two playoff games, while the 49ers have won six consecutive games against the Rams, including a thrilling Week 18 overtime victory in Los Angeles.

    SF vs. LAR Game Page

  • Early money more than 4/1 on the over in the Bengals-Chiefs matchup

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's over/under in the matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the over of 54.5 points has attracted 75% of the bets and 85% of the money thus far. At this point, the sportsbook has big liability to the Chiefs point spread and the over in this matchup, as their most ideal scenario would be a Bengals cover in a low-scoring game at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Kansas City's -335 moneyline odds have attracted 58% of the bets and 61% of the money.

    CIN vs. KC Game Page

  • Early money 3/1 on the Chiefs over the Bengals

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs, as the majority of the action is backing the favored Chiefs.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, Kansas City's -7 point spread has received 61% of the bets and 76% of the handle thus far. Cincinnati is shaping up to be the biggest need of any side or any total this weekend, as the public seems to be enamored with the Chiefs after their thrilling Divisional Round win over Buffalo.

  • 49ers-Rams over/under reaches lowest number of the week

    After another line movement, the over/under for the NFC Championship matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams has reached its lowest total of the week.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the 49ers-Rams over/under on Sunday night was posted at 47.5 points. It was quickly bet down to 46.5 in less than 24 hours. However, it has once again moved toward the under, and now currently sits at 46 points. Given that there has not yet been buyback on the over, it is extremely unlikely we see the total get back to anywhere close to the 47.5 points it opened at.
