Updated:

We’re back with our NCAA football Week 9 report. We’ll review how our in-house handicappers performed last week, recap the biggest games and upsets, plus take a look ahead to this week’s NCAAF action.

We’ll start by reviewing the most profitable handicappers in our NCAA football Week 9 report.

NCAA Football Week 9 Report – Handicappers Review

Robert Ferguson is the #1 NCAAF handicapper in our NCAA football Week 9 report. Robert netted $490 in profits. Our top six cappers in Week 8 netted over $2000 in profit again, which is incredible.

Here are the top six handicappers that earned a feature in our NCAA football Week 9 report:

  • Robert Ferguson: 6-1 (+$490)
  • Scott Wetzel: 4-0 (+$400)
  • Sal Lombardi: 4-2 (+$348)
  • Tonny Ricci / Ryan Davis / The Gold Sheet: 3-0 (+$300)

I want to give a shout-out in our NCAA football Week 9 report to Sal, who bet on the NC State moneyline (+268). The Wolfpack were able to pull off the upset against Clemson (24-17) in Week 8.

Let’s jump into reviewing the biggest games from last week in our NCAA football Week 9 report.

NCAA Football Week 9 Report – Game of the Week

There can only be one “Game of the Week” in our NCAA football Week 9 report.

  • Game of the Week: #6 Oklahoma (33) vs. Kansas (38)

The Sooners undefeated season is finished after losing to Kansas. Oklahoma were favored (-7) on the road, but the Jayhawks scored a touchdown with 0:55 left in the game to take the lead and win.

Jason Bean only went 15/32 for 218 yards, 0 TDs and 2 INTs. However, the Jayhawks rushed all over the Sooners, finishing with 225 rushing yards and 4 rushing TDs on 41 carries.

The Big 12 conference race is looking very interesting after Oklahoma’s loss. There are five teams sitting at 4-1 in Big 12 play now (Oklahoma, Iowa State, Oklahoma State, Texas and Kansas State).

Here are the rest of the top 10 games we wanted to feature in our NCAA football Week 9 report:

  • #8 Oregon (35) vs. #13 Utah (6): The Utes’ home winning streak is over. Oregon dominated the Utes. Bo Nix went 24/31 for 248 yards and 2 TDs, plus he added a rushing TD in the win.
  • #11 Oregon State (24) vs. Arizona (27): Arizona have defeated ranked opponents in their last two games. The Beavers were only small favorites (-3), but it’s still a disappointing loss.
  • #17 North Carolina (42) vs. Georgia Tech (46): The Tar Heels have lost two consecutive games and they’re now 3-2 in ACC play. They were big favorites (-12), but couldn’t get the job done.
  • #20 Duke (0) vs. #18 Louisville (23): Riley Leonard started the game, but he wasn’t 100%. He went 9/23 for 121 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT. Louisville bounced back after losing to Pittsburgh.
  • #21 Tennessee (33) vs. Kentucky (27): The Volunteers had 481 total yards on offense and were able to cover the spread (-4). After starting the season 5-0, the Wildcats have lost three in a row.
  • #24 USC (50) vs. California (49): The Trojans were lucky to win in Week 9. They allowed Cal to score seven TDs. California went for a two-point conversion late to win, but they didn’t convert.
  • Clemson (17) vs. NC State (24): Clemson are now 4-4 after losing to the Wolfpack. The Tigers best wins are against Syracuse and Wake Forest who are both bottomfeeders in the ACC.
  • Colorado (16) vs. #23 UCLA (28): Colorado covered ATS (+14), but it wasn’t a good game for the underdogs. Shedeur Sanders rushed for -20 yards on 13 carries and he threw just one TD.
  • #4 Florida State (41) vs. Wake Forest (16): FSU finally played a complete game. They exploded for 34 points in the first half and cruised to a win. Jordan Travis had four TDs in the victory.

We had some big upsets we were able to include in our NCAA football Week 9 report.

NCAA Football Week 9 Report – Betting Trends

Here are some betting trends we wanted to include in our NCAA football Week 9 report:

  • Top 25 vs. Unranked: It was another losing week against the spread for top 25 teams against unranked opponents. The top 25 teams went 14-3 (7-10 ATS) against unranked opponents. There were three teams that lost straight-up (Oklahoma, Oregon State, and North Carolina).
  • Undefeated Power Five Teams: With Oklahoma losing in Week 9, there are now just five teams in the power five conferences that remain undefeated. The five remaining undefeated teams are Florida State, Michigan, Ohio State, Washington, and Georgia.
  • NCAAF ATS Trends: There are four teams that have cashed 80%+ of games against the spread. Those teams are Arizona (7-1 ATS), UNLV (7-1 ATS), Oregon (6-1-1 ATS) and Rutgers (6-1-1 ATS). The worst teams against the spread in college football are Temple (1-7 ATS), Illinois (1-7 ATS) and Vanderbilt (1-8 ATS). These are the top teams to target or fade in Week 10.
  • NCAAF Over/Under Trends: LSU is the only team that has gone over in every game (8-0). Vanderbilt (8-1), USC (8-1), New Mexico (7-1), and Boston College (6-1-1) are other teams to target when betting overs. Three teams have an over/under record of 1-7 (Ohio State, Arizona and Coastal Carolina). These are the best teams to target when betting under.

What to Watch for Next Week in College Football

Our NCAA football Week 9 report features the biggest games in NCAAF for Week 10:

  • #25 Kansas State vs. #7 Texas: This is an important Big 12 game for both teams. Kansas State and Texas are both 4-1 in Big 12 play. Texas are small favorites (-4) at home.
  • #14 Missouri vs. #1 Georgia: Can Mizzou knock off the Bulldogs in Week 10 action? Georgia a big favorite (-15.5), but this is the toughest opponent they’ve played this season.
  • #5 Washington vs. #24 USC: This is going to be a shootout and could come down to which team gets the football last. The Huskies have a lot more to play for, but the Trojans can play spoiler.
  • #13 LSU vs. #8 Alabama: This game is a toss-up. Alabama is favored (-3) at home. LSU was able to defeat Alabama last season in overtime (32-31). This will be an exciting game to watch.
  • #10 Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State: This is a Big 12 rivalry game with huge implications, as the Sooners need to bounce back after losing in Week 9. Oklahoma is favored (-6) on the road.
