College Football Picks: Week 9

College football lines, spreads and predictions for week 9

Week 8 Recap: We hit home runs with Stanford and LSU but with the remaining four picks missing, it’s time to right the ship and cash in this week.

Spread Picks: 

Navy (+24.5) vs Notre Dame (Midshipman aren’t great but 25 points is a lot to cover and the Fighting Irish have a tendency to allow bad teams to hang around.)

Kentucky (+7) at Missouri (As if they needed any extra motivation, 12th ranked Wildcats are the undercats against Tigers, who are 0-3 in SEC play.)

Iowa (+7.5) at Penn State (Hawkeyes are a solid football team and Nittany Lions have historically struggled against Iowa. Expect a barnburner in Happy Valley.) 

Colorado State (-1.5) vs Wyoming (Cowboys have the second worst scoring offense in the country, while CSU is desperate for wins to become bowl eligible.) 

Texas A&M (+3) at Mississippi State (Another ranked SEC team that opens as the surprise underdog. Kellen Mond has improved each week and the Bulldog’s offense is pitiful.) 

O/U Picks:

Oregon at Arizona Under 65 (This Duck squad has offensive shortcomings and Arizona doesn’t even know who their quarterback will be. I think 38-16 is a reasonable score and well under the line.)

College Gameday Pick ’em: (No money here, just channeling my inner Lee Corso)

Georgia-28 vs Florida-24 (In what could decide the SEC East, Georgia wins the most anticipated game this rivalry has seen since the Tim Tebow-Mark Rict era. Florida has improved but still needs a year to develop defensively.)

Overall: 3-4

ATS: 2-2

O/U: 0-2

Gameday: 1-0
