2012 College Football Picks: BCS National Title Favorites to Avoid

2012 College Football Picks: BCS National Championship Favorites to Avoid Betting On: Every year, there are always a few teams that end up being overrated to start the year by both voters and oddsmakers. Last year, Florida State and Oklahoma were two of the biggest offenders. Whether it is a program’s winning tradition or an overreaction to one successful year, certain teams always get tabbed with lofty expectations that they simply never live up to. Granted, making future bets in college football is always tough because of injuries and other factors that don’t arise until the middle of the season, but bettors can save themselves some disappointment by avoiding some favorites that have a high potential to flame out this year. With that in mind, here is a look at a few teams that are getting decent odds to win the national title in the upcoming 2012 college football season that should be avoided.

2012 College Football Picks: BCS National Championship Favorites to Avoid Betting On

1.      Texas Longhorns (+3550)

The good news is that the Longhorns have an arsenal of talented to running backs to lead their power running game, and they should have the best defense in the Big 12. The bad news is that this team is still searching for a quarterback, and in a conference where four teams averaged more than 40 points, Texas didn’t even average 30 points per game. In fact, Mack Brown’s bunch ranked third last in the Big 12 in points per game, outscoring only Iowa State and Kansas. Granted, the departure of Robert Griffin III from Baylor and Brandon Weeden from Oklahoma State should bring those programs down to earth a bit, but the Longhorns still have to find a way to keep pace with the high-powered offenses of Oklahoma, West Virginia and TCU this season. Texas is going to be lucky to win its conference, let alone compete for a national title.

2.      Michigan Wolverines (+3650)

It is easy to get excited about the Michigan Wolverines. After all, they are coming off a Sugar Bowl win, and human highlight reel Denard Robinson is back at quarterback. However, a suspect defensive line and a tough schedule will likely keep a national title on hold for the Wolverines. Michigan opens the year against defending national champion Alabama, and if the Wolverines somehow knock off the Crimson Tide, Michigan State and Ohio State are still lurking later in the year. The Spartans’ defense completely shut down Robinson and company last year, and although Michigan snapped its seven-year losing streak against Ohio State, a horrible Buckeyes’ offense gashed the Wolverines’ defense for 34 points. Michigan State’s defense is just as good as it was last season, the Buckeyes’ offense should be better with Urban Meyer’s system in place, and Michigan’s defense is worse. A national title run is going to be tough even for Robinson to engineer.

3.      Notre Dame Fighting Irish (+3700)

Maybe it’s the Notre Dame mystique lingering, but there are several dozen team that have a better shot at winning a national title than the Fighting Irish. Quarterback Tommy Rees may or may not start the season after some off the field issues, and even if he does, it’s not like he performed like a Heisman candidate when he was playing. Notre Dame had one of the worst turnover differentials in the country last year, and the Fighting Irish turned the ball over 19 times in their five losses alone. Throw in the fact that they are one of the most-penalized teams in the country and a brutal schedule, and a national title run seems next to impossible. Notre Dame has to go through Michigan, Michigan State, USC, Oklahoma, Miami and Stanford, and that is just the tough games. Brian Kelly’s bunch will be lucky to lose only three games.
