Wisconsin vs. Ohio State is one of five Big Ten games involving ranked teams on Saturday. Unbeaten Penn State puts its No. 6 ranking on the line when the Nittany Lions visit Michigan State. James Franklin and company are favored by almost a touchdown, according to the current college football lines. No. 17 Minnesota (-16.5) takes on visiting Maryland, No. 20 Iowa (-10) heads to Northwestern, and No. 19 Michigan hosts No. 8 Notre Dame in Ann Arbor.

The Nittany Lions picked up a huge 28-21 win overMichiganlast week, keeping them undefeated and in the mix for the Big Ten title and a College Football Playoff bid. They’ll have to keep style points in mind, however, with five other undefeated teams currently sitting in front of them. Michigan State, meanwhile, is just 2-5 against the spread and ranks 12th in the Big Ten in total offense. The model projects that the Spartans muster just 11 points, while Penn State quarterbackSean Cliffordthrows for well over 200 yards as the Nittany Lions cover in over 60 percent of simulations.
Another one of the 2019 Week 9 college football predictions from the model: California stays within the spread as a 21.5-point road underdog when the Golden Bears face No. 12 Utah.
Cal is 4-3 this season, but just 1-3 in the Pac-12 and riding a three-game losing streak. QuarterbackChase Garbershas thrown for 952 yards and eight touchdowns, while running back Christopher Brown Jr. has 480 rushing yards and four touchdowns. The Golden Bears have been consistent on offense all season, averaging 324 yards per game, but it’s Cal’s defense that will be a difference against Utah, as the Golden Bears allow just 18.7 points per game.
The model projects that Cal holds Utah quarterbackTyler Huntleyto under 200 passing yards. That helps the Golden Bears cover the spread over 70 percent of the time.
That’s why the model has the Cardinal covering in well over 60 percent of simulations. Meanwhile, the over (52.5) has all the value since it hits 50 percent of the time.
The model also has made the call on every other FBS matchup in Week 9, including the monster SEC showdown between No. 2LSUand No. 9Auburn. It also knows a line in another game is way off, saying one side of the spread hits in almost 70 percent of simulations. You need to see its college football picks before locking in any of your own.
