The Degenerate Report: College Football Week 9 Picks

Just when you though I was down and out the gut picks sucked me back in. I had a strong 6-2 week and the first winning weekend of the year. So you better bet this week I’m going back to full gut picks. No diving deep into the number, just picks based off what I have seen and what I can feel deep inside the gut.

I am locked in and ready to have some fun because let’s face it, we all have a little degenerate in us, and every once in a while we let it out.

Here are my picks for the weekend.

(make sure to take a listen to Trophy Kids Pod every Wednesday and Friday)


Penn State vs MSU +6 O / U 43.5: Penn State was one of two picks last week that didn’t hit for me. The number was a little to big and Michigan played better then I had anticipated. Am I concerned that Penn State won’t cover again this week? Absolutely not!

I love this Penn State team and think MSU is a dead team walking. The number is solid at 6. I think early it will be a close game but Penn State will pull away towards the end and clobber them.

Pick: Penn State -6

Auburn vs LSU -11 O/U 59.5: LSU is an absolute unit. This team is playing high level football and I’m all in on it. I love Coach O, Joe Burrow, and everything happening down in the bayou.

The number is 11 and that’s a big some for some people but I think it’s just right. I have little faith in Bo Nix on the road for the first time in one of the most electric atmospheres in college football. Sure Auburns d-line will probably manage to keep them in it for a little, but I think Nix will give that LSU defense a few plays to remind everyone why they are still DB U.

Pick: LSU 11

Wisconsin vs Ohio State -15 O / U 50: I am big game hunting this week. I have made it very clear on the Trophy Kids Podcast the last couple weeks that OSU is the second best team in the country and a strong contender for the national championship. I have also been a supporter of this Wisconsin team. Last week might have taken a little shine off this game but it’s still two battering rams ready to go head to head.

Last week was super unfortunate for Wisconsin but they still control their own destiny. The defense is still good despite last week and I think Paul Chryst learned a valuable lesson… run the football. I don’t think Wisconsin wins but I do think they play good defense, control the clock through that powerful run game and muck this game up.

Pick: Wisconsin +15

Texas vs TCU +1.5 O / U 57: Texas is absolutely not back. Honest they are a walking, talking joke at this point. Kansas almost beating them last week as all to perfect. Do I think they will beat TCU… IDK maybe. I do think though that the defense is trash and the over number is low. I like this over hitting.

Pick: OVER 57.5

It should be a great week of football and may the picks be in your favor.
