Sure Betting Winners For Week 9 of the 2022 Season | College Football Lines
Michigan State Spartans @ Michigan Wolverines (-21)
It has been a disappointing season for the Michigan State Spartans. Coming off of a great 2021 season, much was expected from the Spartans this season. They haven’t lived up to expectations, and the 3-4 Spartans will head to the “Big House” on Saturday night to take on the undefeated Michigan Wolverines.
Michigan lost a lot of key pieces from last season’s team that made the College Football Playoffs. Jim Harbaugh just reloaded, and the Wolverines are on a mission to make it back to the playoffs. Not only do the Wolverines have one of the best defenses in the country, but they also have an offense that can beat you in many different ways. Blake Corum is one of the best running backs in the country, and quarterback JJ McCarthy can beat you with his arms or his legs.
Unfortunately for the Spartans, their in-state rivals are on a mission. They want to make it to the Ohio State game undefeated, and then that game will decide who the best team in the Big 10 is. Michigan’s defense is just too strong for the Michigan State offense. The Wolverines will beat the Spartans 38-10 and will cover the 21-point spread.
Missouri Tigers @ South Carolina Gamecocks (-5.5)
The South Carolina Gamecocks are quietly putting together a pretty good season. Coming into their home game with the Missouri Tigers, the Gamecocks are 5-2, and winners of four straight games. Shane Beamer has the program headed in the right direction, and they want to continue with the forward momentum.
Even though the Missouri Tigers are coming off of a victory, they haven’t had a very good season. They’re 3-4, and their lone SEC victory was a 17-14 home victory over the lowly Vanderbilt Commodores. All three of Mizzou’s wins have come at home, as they’re 0-4 away from Columbia.
The Gamecocks are coming off a big 30-24 victory over Texas A&M last week. South Carolina’s offense, led by Oklahoma transfer Spencer Rattler, is averaging just over 33 points per game on the season. Even though Rattler hasn’t been putting up the huge numbers he did at Oklahoma, he has done a nice job of guiding the Gamecocks offense.
We’re going to peg the South Carolina Gamecocks as one of our “sure winners” of the week. With Missouri not being a good road team, and South Carolina playing well, we don’t think Missouri has a chance in this one. Mizzou could barely beat Vanderbilt at home, so we can’t see them competing with South Carolina on the road. The Gamecocks win this one by two touchdowns.
