College Football Picks Week 9

Alright so my last article wasn’t so hot went 2-4, can’t always be outstanding weeks. Didn’t help that fucking Harbaugh decided to throw the ball 40 times in pouring rain, I guess somehow that sounded like a good idea which lead to 5 turnovers. I was going to post Miami -14.5 but now it’s at -17 (humble brag) so I won’t include it just because I don’t think I would play it at that number.  Anyways let’s hope this card goes better (ironically a lot of these spreads are 7)

Friday Night:

Marshall -3

I’ve posted before about how I really like this Marshall team, definitely the best defense in that conference plus MTSU isn’t very good on offense without their QB Stock-still.

Colorado St -7

I think they’re able to score at will here.

Saturday:

Wake Forest +7

Wake has had a bye to prepare for the triple option plus Georgia Tech is coming off a heartbreaking loss to Miami. In a game with a low total give me the points.

Ok St -7

I hate going against Tom Herman as an underdog but that Texas defense gives up a lot of big plays which is what Ok St specializes in (believe me I was at the Pitt Ok St game) I think they hit enough of them to cover.

FSU -7

I will actually be in attendance for this game so that’s pretty cool can’t wait to get my chop on. Anyways Louisville’s rush defense is terrible I think FSU runs wild and Derwin James contains Lamar Jackson plus revenge spot from last year.

Auburn Team Total Over

Arkansas is terrible on defense and I think Auburn is trying to bounce back after the loss last week.

LSU -7

This is a bad spot for LSU after a big win and with Alabama coming up in 2 weeks I think. But I think that’s being priced into the game too much and you know Coach O is going to want this one bad plus Ole Miss is just a dumpster fire so I’m willing to lay the points.

San Diego St -7.5

While Fresno St has been surprisingly very good on offense this year I think SDSU will want to bounce back after the loss to Boise St last week because they’re still trying to play for a New Year’s Six bowl.

UCF -7

How about coach Scott Frost (future coach of a struggling power 5 school coming to theaters near you) being the practice qb coach practicing against the option. I think that really fires a team up and honestly UCF might be the biggest surprise in the country in terms of how good they’ve been. I kind of hate playing against an option but I don’t think they’ll be able to stop UCF’s offense.

Eastern Michigan +3

Gotta love the good ol’ fashion Eastern vs. Western Michigan rivalry, so you know Eastern being a home underdog has gotta fire them up. Plus Western is terrible at throwing the ball and Eastern is actually a pretty good team I like them to pull off a win.

Other Leans/Picks:

North Texas +3.5

If Cal got to +3.5 (maybe at +3)

USC if it got to +4 (maybe at +3.5)

La Tech -2.5
