2018 College Football Week 9 Betting Odds

Getting back on the Tuesday night rotation for the remainder of the regular season, a Sun Belt Conference clash gets Week 9 of the 2018 college football season underway. There are an abundance of week day games to get fans amped for a full slate on Saturday. Troy and South Alabama get the betting week started with a five-game slate on tap for both Thursday and Friday. The Ohio Bobcats haven’t won a league title since 1968, but that could change this season as they are a favorite in the Mid-American Conference. There hasn’t been a repeat champion in the MAC since 2011-12 and the Bobcats would love to extend that streak. They have a Thursday matchup with Ball State to get the day’s action started.

Three games featuring Power 5 conference teams are on the Friday night schedule. A crossover tilt in the ACC has Miami travelling to Chestnut Hill to take on Boston College. It’s not the most ideal Big 10 matchup on the schedule, but two programs on the rise get together when Minnesota hosts Indiana. We also have a Pac-12 South contest set for late night with UCLA entertaining Utah. The Utes had a hand in the demise of Jim Mora by winning two straight in the series and three of the last four. Utah’s 48-17 win last season gave them a winning record over the Bruins since joining the conference in 2011.

2018 NCAA Football Week 9 Betting Schedule

October 23rd, 2018 to October 29th, 2018

Tuesday, October 23

Troy at South Alabama, 8 p.m. ET (ESPN2)

Thursday, October 25

Ball State at Ohio, 7 p.m. ET

Toledo at Western Michigan, 7 p.m. ET

Baylor at West Virginia, 7 p.m. ET (FS1)

Georgia Tech at Virginia Tech, 7:30 p.m. ET (ESPN)

Week nine action in the power five opens with an Atlantic Coast Conference matchup between the struggling Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and the inconsistent but still contending Virginia Tech Hokies. While Virginia Tech leads the Coastal Division standings they have Virginia and Miami right on their heels. Meanwhile the Yellow Jackets are very much alive for a bowl, albeit a minor one at best. With the famed Georgia Tech option offense going against the Bud Foster led Hokie defense live betting options could provide gamblers with openings. More

Appalachian State at Georgia Southern, 7:30 p.m. ET (ESPNU)

Friday, October 26

Louisiana Tech at Florida Atlantic, 6:30 p.m. ET (CBSSN)

Miami at Boston College, 7 p.m. ET (ESPN)

Week nine features a Friday night appetizer from the Atlantic Coast Conference between two inconsistent teams as the Miami Hurricanes meet the Boston College Eagles. Miami was touted for big things this year but has stalled due to an inconsistent offense with poor quarterback play. Boston College has one of the superior rushing attacks and offensive lines in the country but will be up against a Hurricanes defense that is among the best in the lands. All of which leads to plenty of live betting options and opportunities to kick the weekend off in the right manner! More

Indiana at Minnesota, 8 p.m. ET (FS1)

Wyoming at Colorado State, 10 p.m. ET (CBSSN)

Utah at UCLA, 10:30 p.m. ET (ESPN)

Oregon at Arizona, TBD

Arizona State at USC, TBD

Oregon State at Colorado, TBD

Washington at California, TBD

Washington State at Stanford, TBD

Illinois at Maryland, TBD

Vanderbilt at Arkansas, TBD

Texas A&M at Mississippi State, TBD

With the arrival of Jimbo Fisher expectations for the Texas A&M Aggies are indeed larger than life and emblematic of the state itself. As the saying goes. “everything is bigger in Texas” and that is certainly the case ever since the Aggies nearly upset national title contender Clemson in week two. Indeed, A&M has shown dramatic improvement already under Fisher and it stands to figure that when he gets his own recruits clicking in the program will take off. Conversely the Mississippi State Bulldogs are regressing under first year head coach Joe Moorhead. It was stated that previous coach Dan Mullen left behind a full cupboard for Moorhead. Either the talent or the coach have proven to be overrated. Perhaps it is both. Texas A&M meets Mississippi State on Saturday. More

Kentucky at Missouri, TBD

Tennessee at South Carolina, TBD

Clemson at Florida State, TBD

Most pundits figured last week’s game with NC State would be one of Clemson’s toughest battles. That was hardly the case. In a matchup of the ACC’s last unbeatens, the Tigers used their explosive offense to dismantle the Pack, clearing their path to another Atlantic Division title. The Florida State Seminoles are no stranger to being at the top of the division rankings, but this has been a transition season for them. Willie Taggart’s squad stumbled out of the gate and has just a 2-3 league record, but beating Clemson is always on their checklist and they could throw a wrench in the CFP plans of the Tigers on Saturday.

NC State at Syracuse, TBD

Northern Illinois at BYU, TBD

Cincinnati at SMU, TBD

Army at Eastern Michigan, TBD

New Mexico State at Texas State, TBD

Hawai'I at Fresno State, TBD

San Diego State at Nevada, TBD

UNLV at San Jose State, TBD

New Mexico at Utah State, TBD

Iowa at Penn State, TBD

The Iowa Hawkeyes just won’t go away in the Big Ten race and an upset victory over Penn State in Week 9 sets them up well for the rest of the season. Their only loss was a big one, though, falling to West favorite Wisconsin a few weeks ago. Since then the Hawkeyes have been dominant and their shutout victory over Maryland last Saturday showed off their stingy defense. The Hawkeyes have won their last three games by 17, 26 and 23 points and are spotted 4.5-points on the opening college football Week 9 betting lines at BookMaker.eu. More

Purdue at Michigan State, TBD

Central Michigan at Akron, TBD

Arkansas State at Louisiana, TBD

Coastal Carolina at Georgia State, TBD

Southern Mississippi at Charlotte, 2 p.m. ET

Middle Tennessee at Old Dominion, 3:30 p.m. ET

Florida vs. Georgia, 3:30 p.m. ET (CBS)

Week nine’s best matchup of all could very well be the one known as “The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party” between the Florida Gators and Georgia Bulldogs. Florida has shown rapid improvement under new head coach Dan Mullen after stubbing their toe early in a home loss to Kentucky. Georgia was undefeated until their last game which was an embarrassing blowout loss at LSU that many believe was overdue to have happened. The Cocktail Party takes place at the neutral site of Jacksonville with equal ticket allotments for each side. At stake is first place and control of the SEC East Division. More

Rice at North Texas, 4 p.m. ET

Boise State at Air Force, 7 p.m. ET (CBSSN)

UAB at UTEP, 7:30 p.m. ET

Florida International at Western Kentucky, 7:30 p.m. ET

Navy vs. Notre Dame, 8 p.m. ET (CBS)

The 90th meeting between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Navy Midshipmen will be in beautiful San Diego this Saturday. Notre Dame has dominated the all-time series and holds a 75-13-1 record over Navy. However, the Midshipmen have been far more competitive with the Irish over the last decade than at any point since Roger Staubach last lined up under center for Navy. They have won four of the last contests between these two teams and won the last neutral site contest in Jacksonville in 2016. More

Week 9 College Football Games of the Week

Clemson at Florida State, Saturday, October 27

These two schools have combined to win the last seven ACC Championships and there’s a good chance we could see the streak extended. With both teams competing in the Atlantic Division we’ll never see a matchup in the conference title game, so this is the next best thing. Clemson and Florida State have also won a total of 32 ACC titles between them, which is nearly as many as the rest of the teams – past and present – have combined to win. The last time a team other than Clemson or FSU won the league title was in 2010 when Virginia Tech claimed the prize with a win over the Noles.

The two have also dominated the Atlantic Division since the league expanded in 2005, with both winning five titles. So there is plenty riding on this game and the Noles have a slight advantage with the game played in Tallahassee. Clemson got a narrow victory on the road two years ago, ending a four-game losing streak in on the road to FSU. While the teams are always closely matched, the game scores have reflected that. Five of the last eight meetings have been decided by 10 points or less with the teams splitting those contests.

Navy vs. Notre Dame, Saturday, October 27, 8 p.m. ET (CBS)

Notre Dame has dominated the series on the field, but this rivalry is about more than just that. It’s about respect and honor, and the Irish have honored a commitment for several decades after the U.S. Navy helped keep the school operating during some difficult times. The teams have played annually since 1927 making it the longest continual intersectional rivalry in college football. Notre Dame has won 75 of the 91 meetings with a pair of wins vacated by the NCAA.

Navy ended a 43-game losing streak to the Irish with a triple-overtime thriller in 2007 and the Middies have four of their 13 series wins since then. With the small capacity of its home stadium, Navy usually takes to the road in even numbered years, and this event will take place in San Diego, the first time the series has been played west of the Eastern Time Zone.
