Top college football predictions for Week 9
One of the college football picks the model is recommending for Saturday: Georgia (-14) cruises to victory over Florida in a SEC East rivalry at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS on Saturday afternoon. The Bulldogs are 5-1 in their last six games against the Gators and they’re 14-0 in their last 14 games in conference play.
Georgia is averaging 509.4 yards per game on offense, the second-best mark in the SEC. The Bulldogs are led by quarterback Carson Beck, who’s thrown for 2,147 yards, 12 touchdowns and four interceptions. Defensively, Georgia is giving up just 14 points per game, which ranks seventh in the nation. SportsLine’s model projects Georgia’s defense to hold the Gators to just 16 points on Saturday, a big reason why the Bulldogs cover the spread more than 60% of the time.
Another prediction: No. 24 USC (-10) bounces back with a blowout win at California in a 4 p.m. ET kickoff. The Trojans are coming off their first two losses of the season, but they still have the nation’s third-best scoring offense, averaging 45.4 points per game. They are led by reigning Heisman Trophy winner Caleb Williams, who has thrown for 2,277 yards and 23 touchdowns while rushing for 143 yards and seven scores.
California has lost its last two games by double digits, allowing an average of 43 points per game to Utah and Oregon State. The Golden Bears have a one-dimensional offense, with none of their quarterbacks throwing for 600 total yards this season. They are going to have trouble keeping pace with USC’s explosive offense, which is why SportsLine’s model has the Trojans covering the spread 60% of the time.
