Week 9 is the final slate of games before the first College Football Playoff rankings are released on Tuesday. Teams projected to be inside the top four will be trying to make one last impression, while teams outside looking in will need to dominate to enhance their resume so that they are ready to make the jump if anyone fails. No. 3 Notre Dame is expected to be in, and the Fighting Irish are 24-point favorites against Navy in San Diego on the current college football odds board. Meanwhile, No. 7 Georgia is hoping to mount a new charge to the top as a 6.5-point favorite over Florida in the latest Week 9 college football odds. Before you make any Week 9 college football picks and predictions, you’ll want to see what SportsLine’s advanced computer model has to say.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 1
0,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen massive returns. Over de laatste drie jaar, dit proprietary computermodel heeft gegenereerd een jaw-dropping $ 4,210 winst voor $ 100 bettors op zijn top-gewaardeerde puntspreidpicks.
The model made some huge calls against the spread in Week 8, including Nailing LSU (-6) across Mississippi State, Washington State (-3) across Oregon and Alabama (-29.5) across Tennessee. Og når det kommer til topp-rated mot-spredt picks, det er ferdig uke 8 på en sterk 5-1 run. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
Now it has simulated every single play of Week 9 in college football and the results are in.
We can tell you it is calling for No. 16 Texas A & M (+1.5) to not only cover, but get the outright upset on the road against the Mississippi State.
Mississippi State’s offense was shut down by LSU in Week 8 as the Bulldogs were completely one-dimensional. MSU quarterback Nick Fitzgerald completed just 8 of 24 passes for 59 yards and threw four interceptions. The model projects Texas A & M’s defense, which is ranked No. 5 in the SEC, to keep Fitzgerald and the MSU offense at bay again. Texas A & M quarterback Kellen Mouth throws for nearly 250 yards as the Aggies hit against the spread in over 55 percent of simulations.
Another one of the Week 9 college football picks the model is all about: Florida State covers as a 17-point home underdog against Clemson.
The Seminoles have covered in three of their last four games. More importantly, they are starting to settle on both sides of the ball. Last week against Wake Forest, FSU’s offense averaged a season-high 6.8 yards per game on their way to 471 yards of offense, while the defense allowed just 3.6 (tied for a season best). Florida State won that game 38-17 despite Wake Forest running almost 40 more plays.
Against Clemson, the model suspects Florida State’s defense, which allows an average just 332 yards over its last four games, that will slow things down enough to cover. The Noles are projected to record three sacks and force two turnovers to cover in 55 percent of simulations. The under (51) also hits in almost 75 percent of simulations, making it a must-back.
The model has also made the call on who wins the huge SEC showdown between No. 7 Georgia and No. 9 Florida, and is projecting a top 10 team to get absolutely stunned in an upset that will shake up the 2018 College Football Playoff picture.
