Week Nine College Football Gambling Picks
Here’s what I’ll say, I had a killer week last week and we’re going to keep it rolling into week nine. My current record on the year is 15-10 and I feel very confident heading into this week.
Let’s get into the lock of the week. I love Notre Dame -3.5 vs North Carolina in primetime.
The big factor for me in this game has to be that the Tar Heels are wildly inconsistent and have underperformed all year. Sam Howell has thrown for just north of eighteen hundred yards with six interceptions and has been sacked twenty seven times.
Notre Dames defense has been able to get to the quarterback this season as they’ve tallied nineteen sacks, led by seven and a half from Isaiah Foskey.
The Irish defense has also forced eleven interceptions through seven games.
What I’m trying to say is the Notre Dame defense is very good at causing havoc and making quarterbacks uncomfortable. I think they’ll rattle Sam Howell and win this game by over a field goal.
Hammer Notre Dame -3.5 at North Carolina.
Next game up is a team that I bet against last week so hopefully they won’t come back and bite me in the ass. I’m picking the Boston College Eagles +6.5 at Syracuse.
Boston College is on a three game skid with a close loss to Clemson, a blowout loss to NC State, and a loss to Louisville. The Eagles just feel due for a win, one like when they beat Mizzou earlier this season.
As for the Orange, they’re 1-2 in their past three with losses to Clemson and Wake Forest and a win over Virginia Tech. I’m just not sold on Syracuse winning by over a touchdown, or even winning at all.
They’ve dropped games to bad teams this season like Florida State and Rutgers while their defense is giving up 24.6 points a game.
I really don’t know why, but I just have a gut feeling that BC is going to come out firing on all cylinders and take it to Syracuse. They’re due for a win and this weekend will be it.
Ride with Boston College +6.5 at Syracuse.
Let’s continue. We’re going to go with another ACC matchup, this time an over under game. I’m really feeling Wake Forest vs Duke over 69.5 points.
There’s not much explanation other than the fact Wake Forest put up seventy points last week and is averaging 43.14 points per game this season.
Now you maybe thinking that one team won’t make up for ALL of the points, but Dukes offense has been sneaky good as they’re averaging 27 points per game. Hopefully both defenses don’t show up and we get a shootout.
Pound Wake Forest vs Duke over 69.5 points.
Last game I’ll be picking is a pick em. I’m riding with SMU +0.5 at Houston. Two Texas teams that are four hours a part that have a combined one loss and thirteen wins this season.
SMU is 7-0 with their average margin of victory being twenty points. The two squads have similar win margins against the same squads like Tulane and Navy, but this SMU has a more impressive win with a W over TCU.
What I think the biggest factor in who will win this game is SMU quarterback Tanner Mordecai.
Mordecai is having himself a year. He’s thrown for twenty three hundred yards with twenty nine touchdowns and seven picks while only being sacked twice.
Give me SMU +0.5 at Houston this Saturday.
