Brad’s Best Bets – College Football Week 9

2020 College Football Record: 44-35-4 +15.45 units

Last week in college football, America really felt the effects of COVID-19 and how easily it could change the landscape of the entire college football season as Heisman front runner and future #1 overall NFL draft pick Trevor Lawrence was sidelined with the virus.

Another week of College Football is upon us, and yet again we are dealing with game cancellations and roster changes with players dealing with COVID-19. With that being said, college football continues, and we look to continue a solid season with another profitable week.



#23 Michigan Wolverines at #13 Indiana Hoosiers

Point Spread: Michigan -4 (-110), Indiana +4 (-110)

Last weekend Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines fell at the hands of their across state rival Michigan State to the tune of 24-27. Many might say Harbaugh is on the hot seat, I’d have to agree. Luckily for Coach Harbaugh, they are presented with a very winnable game against the Indiana Hoosiers.

When looking for games to back, it is very important you find teams that are either very hot or find themselves in favorable matchups. This game features the latter. Michigan owns the series between the two with their current winning streak at 24 games. The last time Indiana was victorious against the Wolverines was 1988. This is a great bounce back spot for Harbaugh and his team.

Before Michigan’s tough loss against the Michigan State Spartans, the were 5-0 against the spread as favorites. Michigan looks to have found their quarterback in Joe Milton. Milton had a solid game against Michigan State despite struggling to find the endzone. He finished the game completing 32/51 of his passes for 300 yards and added another 59 yards on the ground through 12 carries. If Harbaugh allows Milton the freedom necessary, this could be a long game for the Hoosier.

Indiana on the other hand is not a team I am very worried about. Michael Penix Jr and the Indiana offense des not scare me. With all the preseason hype, I expected Penix and the Hoosier offense to make major leaps. That has not been the case.

With the current win streak at 24 and Michigan 5-1 against the spread, I will take Michigan -4 (-110) for three units to win 2.72 units.
