Do you need to boost your sports betting bankroll ASAP? Then your best bets are picking wining upset straight-up moneyline bets. And you are in luck because I have three such upset moneyline picks for College Football Week 9 action.
Upset Moneyline Picks College Football Week 9
#9 Florida +235 vs. #7 Georgia -275
When: Saturday, Oct. 27 at 12:30 pm ET
Where: TIAA Bank Field, Jacksonville, FL
Spread: Georgia -6.5
Analysis: Bulldogs head to Jacksonville for a battle against Florida after a bye. Georgia needed a week off after the LSU Tigers pummeled them 36-16 in a surprising loss. Strangely, the Bulldogs are favored even though the game’s in Jacksonville and the Gators are hot.
Since the 16-27 loss to Kentucky in Week 2, Florida’s gone 5-0 straight up and against the spread. The Gators beat Mississippi State, LSU, Tennessee and Vanderbilt in 3 of the 5 wins.
Georgia will play Florida tough, but Florida might just be the better team.
Straight-up Moneyline Upset Pick: Florida +235
#18 Iowa +200 at #17 Penn State -240
When: Saturday, Oct. 27 at 3:30 pm ET
Where: Beaver Stadium, University Park, PA
Odds: Penn State -4.5
Analysis: Nittany Lions got back on the winning track in a 33-28 win over Indiana in Week 8. Before beating Indiana, Penn State had lost back-to-back games to Ohio State and Michigan State.
Although beating Indiana’s nice, Nittany Lions won’t start a winning streak on Oct. 27. Iowa’s been the best team in college football against the spread, going 6-1. They’ve suddenly become very good on the moneyline as well.
Iowa’s won 3 in a row: 48-31 at Minnesota, 42-16 at Indiana, and 23-0 over Maryland at home. Hawkeyes should beat Nittany Lions straight up on Saturday.
Straight-up Moneyline Upset Pick: Iowa +200
#15 Washington State +135 at #23 Stanford -155
When: Saturday, Oct. 27 at 7:00 pm ET
Where: Stanford Stadium, Stanford, CA
Odds: Stanford -3.5
Analysis: Stanford’s back into the Top 25 after beating ASU 20-13 on Oct. 18. But, Stanford’s got a huge mountain to climb to keep it close against the Washington State Cougars.
Save for a 36-39 loss to USC in Los Angeles, WASU’s got a perfect straight up record. The Cougars record against the spread actually is perfect at 7-0.
Washington State should beat Stanford on Saturday, and it probably won’t be that close. Cougars by 7 to 10 points seems probable.
Straight-up Moneyline Upset Pick: Washington State +135
