College Football Week 9 Previews and Picks

Bet on NCAA FootballBrigham Young Cougars @ Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets – Saturday, October 27

When you pore over the numbers in an online sportsbook, it’s going to be hard to lean one way or the other in this game. Georgia Tech could be the choice because BYU will not have more than a week to prepare for the Yellow Jackets’ tricky triple-option offense. However, the Cougars do have one of the best defensive minds in the country, head coach Bronco Mendenhall. Moreover, Georgia Tech’s defense is and has been a disaster. Former coordinator Al Groh got fired, and as a result, the Yellow Jackets are going to struggle against BYU’s multi-pronged offense. BYU quarterback Riley Nelson is turnover-prone, but he also makes above-average plays in the open field due to his scrambling ability. As long as Nelson doesn’t turn the ball over – and the feeling is that he won’t in this game – the Cougars hold the upper hand on the road in Atlanta.

College Football Betting Pick: Brigham Young +2

Fresno State Bulldogs @ New Mexico Lobos – Saturday, October 27

New Mexico covered the spread at Air Force last week and should put up a big fight against Fresno State in week nine. Fresno State will win, but the Lobos will cover.
