Another week, another chance to look at the College Football rankings and figure out what the betting market is telling us. The top six teams all stayed the same from the previous week but we have some new teams inside of the top 10. Today, we are going to dive into some NCAA Football Betting opportunities where we can make some money against the spread with some of the teams appearing on the AP Top 25.
Top 25 College Football Analysis and Betting Opportunities for Week 9 of the 2022 Season
Ohio State Buckeyes vs Penn State Nittany Lions
The second-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes are heading to Beaver Stadium to face off against the 13th-ranked Penn State Nittany Lions this weekend. However, these programs are not on the same level as Ohio State is scoring 56.2 points in their previous five games while Penn State is averaging 28 points in their last four games. Junior quarterback C.J. Stroud is definitely in the Heisman discussion with his play as in those five games, he has 22 touchdowns to four
interceptions. Go with the Buckeyes to cover 15.5 points on the road in this game.
Kentucky Wildcats vs Tennessee Volunteers
The 19th-ranked Kentucky Wildcats are on the road in Neyland Stadium this weekend to take on the third-ranked Tennessee Volunteers in a SEC matchup. Tennessee is an elite scoring offense, averaging 50.1 points per game behind their ability to throw exceptionally well with senior quarterback Hendon Hooker under center. This Kentucky defense is one of the best in the game and is the reason why they are ranked where they are as they are holding teams to just 16.1 points per game. They should be able to limit what Vounteers wide receiver Jalin Hyatt does in this game and stagnate the Tennessee offense. The underdog has covered in five of their last six games against each other so go with the Kentucky Wildcats getting 12 points on the road to limit what the Tennessee Volunteers can do offensively.
Cincinnati Bearcats vs UCF Knights
The 20th-ranked Cincinnati Bearcats are heading to the FBC Mortgage Stadium this weekend to take on the UCF Knights in an AAC matchup. The Bearcats have been ding pretty well as they are 6-1 (3-0) while the Knights are 5-2 (2-1) and are coming off of a loss. UCF depends on their running game, that is also led by senior quarterbac kJohn Rhus Plumlee, as he has 18 total touchdowns (11 passing, seven rushing). The biggest thing is the fact that this Bearcats team essentially eliminates the passing game as they are allowing 185.3 passing yards per game this season. The Knights are a good defense, but allowed 34 points to the East Carolina Pirates last week. The Cincinnati Bearcats are somehow the underdog in this game as they are getting 1.5 points in this game. Cincinnati has covered in seven of their previous eight games against teams with a winning record so easily give me the point and a half to cover the spread and sprinkle a bit on the moneyline as well.
