10 Best College Football Predictions Against The Spread Week 9

10 best predictions for this week’s college football slate.

What games appear to be the best bets and best picks for the Week 9 games?

10 Best College Football Predictions: Week 9 Expert Picks Results So Far: 48-42-1

However, even though everything in betting needs to be thought out and reasoned to justify the investment, sometimes … whatever. Just go with what’s working until the world tells you it’s over.

For example, if it seems like just about every Big 12 game is 38-34 or 44-40 with the home team winning, that’s because it’s true.

Helped by the in-game line change, the overs on Big 12 games dominated last weekend – and the week before, too.

Oh, and the Big 12 home teams went 4-0 straight up last week after going 4-0 the week before.

It’s not quite as big a trend in the Pac-12 – Washington won at Cal last week, and the Golden Bears covered – but it’s close.

That all might seem basic – of course the home teams are supposed to win – but if that’s happening and the visiting teams in the big conferences aren’t coming through, sometimes the spreads will defy logic and reason for the home side.

You’ll see what I mean in a moment. That, and yes, you don’t have to yell.

I’ve been going point total heavy lately so this will be all about the picks against the spread this week except for two that have to be on here.

But first, speaking of defying logic and reason …
