College football picks against spread: Stuart Mandel’s Week 9 picks

The Athletic

Last week wasn’t my best hour. Did you really choose Yes to cover against Ohio State?

I feel more confident this week. truly. I do.

last week: 5-6 for the difference

season: 44-43-1 for the difference

(All spreads come from BetMGM, click here For live odds, all kickoff times are Eastern.)

Syracuse heartbroken lost in Clemson But she earned a lot of respect nonetheless. QB Garrett Schrader He is a player, defense earned after Tigers QB DJ Uiagalelei. Clemson eventually cut the orange on the floor. Notre Dame aspired to have that kind of rushing attack, but it was inconsistent for most of the season.

Syracuse 27, Notre Dame 20
picking Syracuse -2.5

No. 2 Ohio State (-15.5) at No. 13 Pennsylvania statenoon, fox

Penn State High School led by CB Joey Porter Jr.helped fifth-ranked Penn State pass the efficiency defense and gave Nittany Lions hope of at least slowing down the Buckeyes star. CJ Stroud And they accepted it. It’s hard to imagine Sean Clifford And Pennsylvania’s crime would be able to keep up with four quarters.

number 7 TCU (-7.5) in West Virginia, Noon, ESPN

The TCU will lose at some point, and the trip to Morgantown will be in the wake of facing four top 25 consecutive opponents that have all the ingredients for a trap. But Max Duggan Horned frogs love to take pictures, and West VirginiaTheir defense largely failed to stop them. Mountaineers are ranked 108th nationally in more than 20 permitted playgrounds (39).

number 20 Cincinnati at UCF (-1), 3:30 p.m., ESPN

UCF has been all over the map this season. In the last two games, the Knights put 70 points on Temple, then lost 34-13 at East Carolina. QB John Rhys Plumley He threw three pickaxes and was fired four times before pirates. Luke Fickell’s defense led by LB Evan Pace Jr.will come after him.

Cincinnati 21, UCF 16
picking Cincinnati +1

No. 1 Georgia (-22.5) vs. Florida3:30 p.m., CBS

Florida QB Anthony Richardson It was a miserable first career start against the Dougs last season. He will need to get out in order to have any chance of Gator in this game. Florida’s defense is awful (105th nationally), and Georgia is especially problematic thanks to standoff nightmares like TE Brock Powers.

Georgia 44, Florida 20
picking Georgia -22.5

It’s Oklahoma State’s third consecutive game against a ranked opponent, and the first of two games – a 43-40 overtime loss to the TCU and a 41-34 return. Texas – They were both nail lovers. while QB Adrian MartinezUncertain situation makes it difficult to disable K-State, it seems that wild cats Cowboys can catch when they are rickety.

Kansas State 33, Oklahoma State 30
picking Kansas State -1.5

19 Kentucky at No. 3 TN (-12.5), 7 p.m., ESPN

Kentucky QB Will Levis He is a much appreciated NFL draft prospect, however I have more confidence in the Vols star Hendon Hooker. Levis effectively explained at a press conference that the Wildcats’ plan is to tighten up the long rides to keep the ball away from TennesseeAn insult, but Foles scores so fast I’m not sure that matters.

picking TN -12.5

Mel Tucker is 2-0 against Michigan, and the Spartans have won 10 of the last 14 editions of this rivalry – which seems like a setup for the Wolverines to take out a lot of frustration in this edition. The state’s offensive is a shell from last year’s edition led by Kenneth Walker III and its defense is 105th nationwide. Whereas Michigan is good at everything.

Michigan 42, Michigan State 14
picking Michigan -22.5

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

This line only asks us to take 3-4 Aggies At home, and you know Jimbo wants this badly after some Lane Kevin shots. But I’ve seen so much of that horrific crime that I can’t ignore it. Aggies doesn’t have such a dynamic midfielder as LSU‘s Jaden Danielswho exposed the flaws of Ole Miss’s previously untested crime.

Ole Miss 24, Texas A&M 20
picking Ole Miss -2.5

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

I have been saying for weeks that UNC is not as good as its 6-1 record and ranking. Vegas seems to agree with me in light of tar heels They are the favorites to win just 3 points at home to 4-3 a house team with losses Georgia Tech And the Louisville. But leopards qb Kidon sloves He didn’t seem able to exploit UNC’s biggest weakness, the pass defense.

North Carolina 34, house 27
picking North Carolina -3

special annoyed: UAB (-5.5) on FAU, 7 p.m., CBS Sports

I don’t have any insight into Xs and OS on this. I’ve just seen FAU advertise this game as “the biggest Halloween party in Boca Raton”, and that sounds like a scary place if you’re a favorite with 5.5 UAB points.
