The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / College Football / College football picks, predictions against the spread for Week 9 all of the top 25 games

College football picks, predictions against the spread for Week 9 all of the top 25 games

Publish Date: 10/27/2022
Fact checked by: Mark Lewis

Top 25

8-3 last week against the spread, and now for the season, 54-36! Check out the top football odds.

No. 14 Utah (-8) at Washington State (10 p.m., FS1)

The Cougars have covered three of their last three home games, including a loss to Oregon (44-41). Although it won’t be easy, Utah will use this game to rehearse for its trip to Oregon on November 19.

Prediction: Utah 34ย  Washington State 24(Take the Utes and give the 8 points)

No. 2 Ohio State (-15.5) at No. 13 Penn State (noon, Fox)

This is Ohio State’s first real road test against a good opponent, and they will cover this as they pull away in the second half. Penn State doesn’t have the horses on defense.

Prediction: Ohio State 45ย  Penn State 20( Take the Buckeyes and give the 15.5)

Check out the top odds for Penn State/Ohio State

Spread Moneyline Total
Bet Spread with Caesars -630 From Fanduel Over 60.5 Odds from Betmgm
See Bet365 Odds +450 Odds from DraftKings See Odds from Caesars

Notre Dame at No. 16 Syracuse (-3) (12 p.m., ABC)

Notre Dame will need to run for 200 yards to win this game and can do so. Clemson had a tough loss at Clemson and needs a huge bounce-back game. I like the Irish in a minor upset.

Prediction: Notre Dame 27ย  Syracuse 24(Take the Irish and the points)

ย 

No. 7 TCU (-7) at West Virginia (noon, ESPN)

The Horned Frogs are coming off beating four ranked opponents, so a letdown is possible, but don’t hold your breath.

Prediction: TCU 41ย  West Virginia 24(Take the Frogs and give the 7 points)

No. 8 Oregon (-17) at Cal (3:30 p.m., FOX/FS1)ย 

The Ducks are red hot behind quarterback Bo Nix and have scored over 40 points in every one of the last four games. The Bears do not have the fire-power to hang in this one.

Prediction: Oregon 45ย  California 17(Take the Ducks and give the 17 points)

No. 1 Georgia (-22.5) vs. Florida (3:30 p.m., CBS)ย 

Georgia has been huge favorites every game this season, but 22.5 seems like an awful lot against a solid Gator squad. Georgia will win but take the Gators and the points.

Prediction: Georgia 38ย  Florida 20(Take the gators and the points)

Check out the best odds for betting on Georgia/Florida

Spread Moneyline Total
Bet Spread with Caesars -1000 From Fanduel Over 56.5 Odds from Betmgm
See Bet365 Odds -2100 Odds from DraftKings See Odds from Caesars

No. 11 Wake Forest (-5.5) at Louisville (3:30 p.m., ACC Network)ย 

This one is hard to call because Louisville is such an up-and-down team this year. With that being said I like wake Forest’s consistency this season.

Prediction: Wake Forest 37ย  Louisville 24(Take the Demon Deacon and give the points)

No. 17 Illinois (-8) at Nebraska (3:30 p.m., ABC/ESPN)ย 

Illinois has been one of the biggest surprises of this season and Nebraska’s defense has been awful. Take the Illini!

Prediction: Illinois 31ย  Nebraska 21(Take the Illini and give the points)

No. 9 Oklahoma State (+1.5) at No. 22 Kansas State (3:30 p.m., FOX)

Injuries are killing Kansas State at Quarterback and running back, and I think Oklahoma State is the better team.

Prediction: Oklahoma State 27ย  Kansas State 24(Take the Cowboys and the points)

No. 20 Cincinnati (Pick ’em) at UCF (3:30 p.m., ESPN)

The Bearcats have been terrible against the spread, but that won’t be an issue here as no spread exists. QB for the Bearcats has been an issue but they are the better team in this one.

Prediction: Cincinnati 30ย  ย UCF 28

Missouri at No. 25 South Carolina (-5.5) (4 p.m., SEC Network)ย 

I like South Carolina in this one. The reason is simple the Gamecocks are 3-0 against the spread at home this season.

Prediction: South Carolina 27ย  Missouri 20(Take the Cocks and give the points)

No. 19 Kentucky at No. 3 Tennessee (-13) (7 p.m., ESPN)

The Wildcats are very good on defense and QB Will Levis is back and the Cats are dangerous here, but the Vols pull it out.

Prediction: Tennessee 34ย  Kentucky 24(Take the Cats and the points)

No. 10 USC (-16) at Arizona (7 p.m., Pac-12 Network)

The Trojans are coming off a tough loss and the Wildcats defense is horrendous!

Prediction: USC 45ย  Arizona 27(Take the Trojans and give the Points)

Michigan State at No. 3 Michigan (-23) (7:30 p.m., ABC)

This spread is huge for a rivalry game, and while Michigan State has been dominated for most of the year while Michigan has been dominant, I will take the points in this one.

Prediction: Michigan 34ย  Michigan State 16(Take the Spartans and the points)

No. 15 Ole Miss (-2.5) at Texas A&M (7:30 p.m., SEC Network)

The Rebels just got exposed at LSU, while the Aggies are now fighting to just make a bowl game. That desperation will keep the Aggies in this game but the Rebels offense is too consistent to worry about ab Aggies upset.

Prediction: Ole Miss 31ย  Texas A&M 24(Take the Rebels and give the points)

Pittsburgh at No. 21 North Carolina (-3) (8 p.m., ACC Network)ย 

The Tar Heels will win this one in a shootout as the Tar Heels offense is too explosive for the Panthers.

Prediction: North Carolina 38ย  Pittsburgh 30(Take the tar Heels and give the points)

Stanford at No. 12 UCLA (-16) (10:30 p.m., ESPN)ย 

The Stanford defense has hung tough in their last two games, but against high-powered offenses this season they have been overwhelmed. The question is not who wins this game it’s whether the Bruins can cover a large spread. Check out the top football betting sites.

Prediction UCLA 41ย  Stanford 20(Take the Bruins and give the points)
