Early College Football Week 9 Bets To Place
Week 8 of the college football season is here, which means it isn’t too early to get a look at some of the lines for Week 9’s action. Many of the early lines may shift after this weekend’s games, so here are some of the bets you might want to lock in sooner rather than later.
Ole Miss +2.5 vs. Texas A&M
Lane Kiffin has the Rebels undefeated through seven games, but there’s still real value available as the season reaches the stretch run. Ole Miss is a slight underdog on the road against LSU this weekend, which is questionable at best.
LSU has had some nice wins this season, including a victory over Florida in Gainesville this past weekend, but it’s hard to put the Tigers on Ole Miss’ level after the way they struggled with Auburn and were blown out by Tennessee.
If we see Ole Miss go into Baton Rouge and win, this team should end up favored against Texas A&M’s highly questionable offense. Ole Miss +2.5 or Ole Miss moneyline are both nice values right now.
Oklahoma State State +3 vs. Kansas State
Upcoming odds don’t reflect too much belief in an Oklahoma State team that started 5-0 and went to two overtimes against undefeated TCU on the road this past weekend. The Cowboys are 6.5-point underdogs against Texas this weekend, despite the Longhorns’ struggles to shake Iowa State on Saturday.
Even on the road, I like Oklahoma State’s chances of getting a win over Texas. This team has scored 34+ points in all six games this season and has one of the nation’s most experienced quarterbacks in Spencer Sanders (who does have to play better).
If the Cowboys look better than expected this weekend, they should absolutely be favored against a Kansas State team that has been prone to close games. This line could also move in Oklahoma State’s direction if Kansas State can’t keep up with TCU this weekend.
Syracuse -1 vs. Notre Dame
With a layup against UNLV on the schedule for Notre Dame this weekend, this line will be fully determined by how well Syracuse fares against Clemson. The undefeated Orange aren’t expected to win – they’re 13.5-point underdogs – but a blowout or a closer than expected game would go a long way toward moving this line.
Clemson has played a few close games against good-but-unspectacular ACC opponents this season. While they’ve won each of them and should certainly win this one, the Orange have enough between their running game and defense to keep it close and show why they’re 6-0.
Only one team has scored more than 20 points against Syracuse this season. I’m not sure Notre Dame has the offense to beat this Syracuse team in upstate New York. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see money come in on Syracuse leading up to the game.
Ohio State -15.5 vs. Penn State
Too many people are still convinced that teams are going to compete with Ohio State and Michigan in the Big Ten. After Penn State was walloped by the Wolverines last weekend, I’m surprised the Buckeyes aren’t even larger favorites ahead of their matchup with James Franklin’s team.
Despite starting 5-0, Penn State hasn’t proven much this season. A win over flailing Auburn and a Week 1 shootout win over Purdue are still the Nittany Lions’ two most impressive victories. This line could move even further toward Ohio State once the Buckeyes take care of business against Iowa this weekend, and it’s possible Penn State has a hard time shaking Minnesota after what we saw against Michigan.
