Ten Betting Tips: College Football Betting Bits To Watch For Week 9

After another great week of the college football betting season, we are back for Week 9, as we look at the top teams, players, and trends of note for the this week on NCAA football schedule.

It was only two weeks ago that QB Collin Klein was considered a bit of an afterthought in the Heisman Trophy race. However, he and his Kansas State Wildcats knocked off the West Virginia Mountaineers in a big time way, and that not only helped Klein out, but it hurt the heck out of QB Geno Smith, too. Klein is the favorite on the Heisman Trophy odds, and he has the No. 4 ranked team in the country that is probably just five wins away from the National Championship Game. That’s about the same task that the…

Florida Gators have as well. The Gators are involved in the end of their big time portion of the schedule, and if they can survive against the Georgia Bulldogs, they’ll almost certainly be 11-0 going into the game against the Florida State Seminoles. This is one of the most ferocious defenses in the nation for sure, holding teams down to just 12.1 points per game. Save for the Alabama Crimson Tide, who are just a given as one of the best defenses in the country, about the only other defense that has been more impressive than Florida is that of the…

Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The Golden Domers have allowed a grand total of zero rushing touchdowns all year long, and they are conceding just 9.4 points per game on the campaign. Teams are averaging just 3.41 yards per carry against Notre Dame, and the squad is just shutting down everyone that plays against it. Of course, this week is the biggest challenge against another team that is going to be in the National Championship race, the…

Oklahoma Sooners. This is going to be a defining game in the coaching career of Head Coach Bob Stoops. A second loss this season will once again take Oklahoma out of the BCS National Championship picture, and there has to be a real chance that he is going to end up getting fired very soon. The Sooners have largely underachieved over the course of the last eight years or so, and that isn’t going unnoticed. That’s the exact same problem that is happening right up the road for the…

Texas Longhorns, who really want to get rid of Head Coach Mack Brown. The good news is that QB David Ash is still on the rise, and he might be able to save Brown’s skin, but in the end, the team really would love to bring in another big time coach. Austin provides the Horns will every resource in the world, and the fact of the matter is that one National Championship and just two conference titles isn’t good enough. Texas is a heavy favorite this weekend at -24.5, but the biggest favorite of the weekend on the college football odds is the…

Oregon Ducks, who are laying 45.5 against the Colorado Buffaloes. The Buffs were beaten by 44 last week against the USC Trojans, and that came as 39.5 point underdogs. Now, the spread is even higher, but the challenge might be even greater as well. The Oregon offense put up 43 points on the board last week in the first half alone against the Arizona State Sun Devils, and that might be the best defense in the Pac-12. The Quack Attack ranks second in the land in scoring, and the only team that is doing more is the…

Louisiana Tech Bulldogs. The Bulldogs are putting up just some outrageous numbers this year. Take a look at some of them… QB Colby Cameron? 2,297 yards, 20 TDs, no picks. RB Kenneth Dixon? 783 rushing yards and 16 TDs, averaging 7.0 yards per carry. WR Quinton Patton? 58 receptions, 797 yards, and 10 trips to the end zone. At the end of the year, the team is on a clip to put up 7,560 yards and 729 points. Those are just remarkable numbers. Of course, the only man that has been able to take down the amazing Bulldogs this year is the great…

Johnny Manziel. Johnny Football, as he is known for the Texas A&M Aggies, has put up numbers that few have accomplished as a frosh. He threw for 395 yards and rushed for 181 more, accounting for six total touchdowns against La Tech, and he now has 2,659 total yards and 24 total touchdowns on the campaign. Those numbers are going to improve this week against the Auburn Tigers, but that still won’t be the most in the country this year. That will still be…

Seth Doege of the Texas Tech Red Raiders. Doege has thrown for 28 touchdowns and 2,209 yards. Even in the high octane offense that T-Tech runs, Doege is still averaging 8.3 yards per pass attempt, and he is just throwing the ball all over the place. However, this week, Doege is going to have a tremendously tough time when he has to go on the road to face off with…

Collin Klein. The Wildcats know that they are going to be up against it versus a team that has a great history of pulling off upsets on the road. Just ask the Sooners. Klein though, is hoping to be an exception to the rule. He has 24 total touchdowns and just two picks on the campaign. He is going to need every one of these touchdowns to get the job done against T-Tech.
