Week 9 is shaping up to be a pretty eventful weekend for College Football betting as the CFP could be impacted by the end of Saturday. Ross Benjamin 23-11 (68%) brings you the best angles and trends to follow.

Friday 10/28

Navy vs South Florida 7:00 PM ET

Navy showed their character and determination by grinding out a 42-28 home win last Saturday over a 5-1 Memphis team. That came on the heels of an upset win over then #6 ranked Houston. Now they face a third consecutive quality AAC team in a road game at South Florida. Current (10/24) college football betting odds at BetOnline.com indicates that Navy is an 8.0-point underdog. Since 9/27/2008, Navy is an extremely profitable 20-5 ATS (80%) as a road underdog, and they won straight up on 13 of those occasions. As a matter of fact, during that exact time frame, if Navy was a road underdog of 13.0 or less, they went 12-7 straight up in those contests.

Saturday 10/29

#15 Auburn vs Ole Miss 7:15 PM ET

Any road favorite coming off 3 straight wins by 21 points or more, versus an opponent that allowed 37 points or more in their previous game, resulted in those road favorites going 23-4 ATS (85.2%) since 2007. Those road favorites also were 27-0 straight up in those contests. Considering the small point spread, it creates additional betting value for one of my college football week 9 picks.

Pick: Auburn -4.0

#3 Clemson vs #12 Florida State 8:00 PM ET

Since 2013, Florida State has gone a dominating 23-1 at home. Their only loss in that sequence came this year against North Carolina. The Tar Heels won that contest 37-35, and did so by kicking a 53-yard field go as time expired. Anytime we’re given an underdog with a superb home field strength, it automatically provides substantial betting value. Look for the Seminoles to take this game down to the wire, and an upset is well with a realm of possibility.

Pick: Florida State +5.0
