Free NCAA Betting Picks Week 9

Pick No. 1

2-Unit Straight Bet (Thursday Night)

Virginia Tech -3.5 over Pittsburgh – Bovada Line and sign up (Click Here)

Virginia Tech is playing really well right now on both sides of the ball. The VT offense has put up 30+ points in four out five games. Meanwhile, the defense just shut down a pretty good Miami offense. Pittsburgh’s D has a tough time getting stops. Lay the points with VT.

Pick No. 2

1-Unit Straight Bet (Thursday Night)

San Diego St -6 over Utah St – Bovada Line and sign up (Click Here)

SDSU Head Coach Rocky Long has the Aztecs playing some great defense, allowing only 13 points over the last three games. Aztec Heisman hopeful Running Back Donnel Pumphrey should find space against a soft Utah St D.

Pick No. 3

2-Unit Straight Bet

Washington -10 over Utah – Bovada Line and sign up (Click Here)

Washington is a NCAA Playoff contender with a big defensive line to shut down a solid Utah running attack. Washington can score with the best with QB Jake Browning leading the charge.

Pick No. 1

1-Unit Straight Bet

Take New York Jets -3.5 over Cleveland – Bovada Line and sign up (Click Here)

New York went back to Matt Forte and limited Ryan Fitzpatrick from throwing interceptions. The Jets still offer a tough run defense, and the Browns are starting another rookie QB in Kevin Hogan.

Pick No. 2

2-Unit Straight Bet

Take Oakland +1.5 over Tampa Bay – Bovada Line and sign up (Click Here)

Tampa Bay got a win on the road vs a bad San Francisco team. Oakland offers a much tougher offense to stop. Amari Cooper should have a big day against a weak Tampa secondary. Tampa has some fight, but Oakland will come out on top.

Pick No. 3

2-Unit Straight Bet

New England -6.5 over Buffalo – Bovada Line and sign up (Click Here)

Tom Brady was not around when Buffalo surprised the Pats and got a 16-0 win. Don’t expect the injury-riddled Bills offense to keep up with the high-powered Pats offense. I am calling for a Pats blow out.
