College football picks for Week 9; 5-1 on best bets

After spottting Temple a 10-0 lead at the half, Rutgers rolled to a 35-10 victory to secure last week's best bet.
That puts us at 5-1 for best bets on the season, with our only loss coming when UCLA won 21-14 against Utah while giving 9.
That still smarts but we're on a roll.

This week we're going with USC as the best bet. If you look at the Pac-12 there have been very few upsets especially with the late games being one-sided. USC has the defense to shut down Matt Scott and KaDeem Carey and that will be enough. You know they'll score

I also thought about Northwestern. The Wildcats are coming off a heart-breaking 29-28 loss to Nebraska. While that may have dampened their spirits it really showed how talented NU is and they should post a double-digit win this weekend. My problem is if they fall behind 7-0 it's tough for them to cover a TD spread.

Best bet: USC
Preferred: Boise State, Texas

Here are picks for every game. The selection is in bold
