College football odds, lines, bets, predictions for Week 9, 2021: Proven computer model picks Kentucky, BYU

4 min read

The Week 9 college football schedule pits two of the top defenses in the country that don’t get a lot of help from the other side of the ball. No. 9 Iowa faces Wisconsin in a matchup where the point total is 36.5, which is the lowest of the week, according to the Week 9 college football odds at Caesars Sportsbook. Expect a game that will stay close, but don’t look for too many trips to the end zone for either side.

Despite being the unranked side, the Badgers are 3.5-point home favorites in that game. Elsewhere in the Week 9 college football lines at Caesars, No. 1 Georgia is -14 against Florida in the 3:30 p.m. ET SEC on CBS game, No. 5 Ohio State is -18.5 against No. 20 Penn State and No. 6 Michigan is -4 against No. 8 Michigan State. Before making any Week 9 college football picks on those games or others, be sure to see the latest college football predictions and betting advice from SportsLine’s proven model.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times. Over the past five-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of almost $3,900 for $100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread. It also enters Week 9 of the 2021 season on a 26-11 run on all top-rated college football side picks. Anyone who has followed it has seen huge returns.

Now, it has turned its attention to the latest Week 9 college football odds from Caesars and locked in picks for every FBS matchup. Head here to see every pick.

Top Week 9 college football predictions

One of the top college football picks the model is recommending for Week 9: No. 12 Kentucky (-1.5) covers at Mississippi State in a 7 p.m. ET Saturday matchup. The model projects Kentucky to win by a touchdown, bringing plenty of value on this small number. Kentucky has proven to be worth your money this year, as the Wildcats are 6-0 against the spread.

Of course, that streak has to come to an end at some point. But with a sturdy defense and a rested team following a bye week, SportsLine’s model isn’t predicting it’ll be this week. In the simulations, the model has Kentucky covering the spread well over 60 percent of the time, while the point total (47) goes under almost 70 percent of the time, so those are both smart picks for straight bets or a potential parlay. 

Another one of the college football predictions from the model: No. 25 BYU (-2.5) has no problem covering the small spread at home against Virginia at 10:15 p.m. ET on Saturday. Virginia head coach Bronco Mendenhall returns to Provo after serving as the BYU head coach from 2005-15. He has the Cavaliers on a roll right now as they’ve won and covered in four straight.

But BYU has played a schedule heavy on Power Five opponents and enters this matchup with a 6-2 overall record. The model is projecting almost 100 yards the ground for BYU running back Tyler Allgeier and over 300 yards through the air for quarterback Jaren Hall. BYU covers over 60 percent of the time, while the under 63.5 hits in 60 percent of simulations.

How to make Week 9 college football picks 

The model has also made the call on who wins and covers in every other game on the Week 9 college football schedule, and it’s calling for a top-10 team to go down hard. You can only get every pick for every game at SportsLine.

So what college football picks can you make with confidence? And which top-10 squad goes down hard?
