NCAA Football Week 9 SU Picks

Written by on October 23, 2018

The last couple of weeks have been hard on staunch bettors of college football, as we have seen more than our fair share of stunning upsets. Rather than shying away from the tough picks, though, we are going to jump right back in and see if we can nudge the old bankroll back in the right direction. We are going to start out by taking a look at 4 SU picks for Week 9 of the college football betting action, but we will also have some picks for those of you who like to play ATS and O/U, so be on the lookout for those articles a little later today.  

NCAA Football Week 9 SU Picks


Miami Hurricanes over Boston College Eagles

It’s a long weekend of college football action, with this one set to go under the lights on Friday night. This will be the first meeting between these teams in 6 years, so a lot to look forward to, with a pair of 5-2 squads going head to head.


That mark is a positive one for the Eagle, but almost certainly a disappointment for a Hurricanes team that was looking to take another step forward this season. Miami needs to find a way to bounce back after a 16-13 loss to Virginia last week, and while this is certainly not the easiest game available, I like Miami to get the win on the road.

  • Miami-FL is 5-1 SU in its last 6 games
  • Miami-FL is 1-4 SU in its last 5 games on the road
  • Boston College is 5-2 SU in its last 7 games
  • Boston College is 2-11 SU in its last 13 games when playing Miami-FL

Vanderbilt Commodores over Arkansas Razorbacks

Both teams are coming into this one with a losing record, although I would suggest that the Commodores have been a little more competitive than their opponent over the course of the season. Vandy pushed Kentucky all the way to the end last weekend, eventually losing 14-7, but still covering as an 11-point underdog.


Arkansas finally got their first win of the season last week, pitching a defensive shutout in a 23-0 win over Tulsa. This looks like it will be a low-scoring affair, and I think it will be the Vanderbilt Commodores who eventually eke out the win.

  • Vanderbilt is 1-5 SU in its last 6 games
  • Vanderbilt is 1-6 SU in its last 7 games on the road
  • Arkansas is 1-6 SU in its last 7 games
  • Arkansas is 1-4 SU in its last 5 games at home

Purdue Boilermakers over Michigan State Spartans

The Boilermakers delivered the upset of the season in a stunning 49-20 win over Ohio State last weekend, a game that they started as a 12-point underdog. Winning at home in front of a rowdy, enthusiastic crowd is always a little easier than picking up wins on the road, which is why the trip to East Lansing this weekend might be just a little trickier.

  Purdue is one of the favorites for NCAA Football Week 9.  

The Spartans offense has been sputtering of late, helping explain why they have now lost 2 of their last 3 games. They are a slight favorite against Purdue this Saturday, but they will be facing a team still sure to be riding a high. I am on the Boilermakers for the slight upset.

  • Purdue is 4-1 SU in its last 5 games
  • Purdue is 0-5 SU in its last 5 games when playing Michigan State
  • Michigan State is 12-5 SU in its last 17 games
  • Michigan State is 6-2 SU in its last 8 games at home

Duke Blue Devils over Pittsburgh Panthers

The Duke Blue Devils are having themselves a very nice little season and will become bowl eligible with just one more win. The question now is whether that will happen this weekend. The Blue Devils have certainly not had very much in the way of success against Pitt, losing 4 of the last 5 meetings.

  This Duke team appears to be on the rise, though, as they have now won 8 of their last 10, which may explain why they are in as a slight road favorite here. Should be a close on, but I am on Duke to win.  

Latest NCAA Football Week 9 Betting Trends

  • Duke is 8-2 SU in its last 10 games
  • Duke is 4-1 SU in its last 5 games on the road
  • Pittsburgh is 2-4 SU in its last 6 games
  • Pittsburgh is 4-1 SU in its last 5 games at home
