Last week, I went a season best 8-1 in college football spreads. Let’s keep that momentum going into week 10 of the season. Every Saturday on CA Betting News, I will give you my top college football plays for the week using the latest odds from FanDuel Sportsbook and DraftKing Sportsbook. Here are my best plays for the week of college football.

Houston Cougars at UCF Knights -12.5 1H
FanDuel Sportsbook Odds: UCF -12.5 1H
DraftKings Sportsbook Odds: UCF -12.5 1H
UCF has been a first half machine at home this season, but during the second half, they’ve let teams back in. They had easy first half covers against East Carolina two weeks ago at home and last month against UConn before easing up. Houston has been the opposite, getting off to slow starts before coming on stronger in the second half. To me, this is a perfect setup for UCF to put their foot down early in this game and hang on. I like the -20 overall, but am going to play it safer with the first half number here. UCF is coming off a thumping of Temple on the road a week ago, one of their more impressive wins of the year and seems to have righted the ship since their loss at Cincinnati. If they can avoid turnovers, which has been their achilles heel in their close games and losses, they should have their way with Houston today.
Prediction: Halftime UCF 28, Houston 10
#8 Georgia Bulldogs vs. #6 Florida Gators 1H UNDER 23.5
FanDuel Sportsbook Odds: UGA-UF 1H UNDER 23.5
DraftKings Sportsbook Odds: UGA-UF 1H UNDER 23.5
Arguably the biggest game of the day and a crucial game in the college football playoff picture. If the Gators win today, they will be likely headed to the SEC Championship game with a shot at the playoff. A Georgia win and they also likely head to the SEC Championship game but still need to navigate through Auburn in two weeks to ensure that SEC Championship game is for a playoff spot. Both teams come in strong on defense, Georgia ranking No. 7 and Florida No. 25. Georgia has had success on the ground and will continue to try and ride De’Andre Swift in this game, which should slow the first half down a lot. This should be a slugfest with points coming at a premium here today. Look for a low scoring first half in Jacksonville.
Prediction: Halftime Georgia 10, Florida 10
Northwestern Wildcats at Indiana Hoosiers OVER TT 26.5 points
FanDuel Sportsbook Odds: Ind OVER TT 26.5 points
DraftKings Sportsbook Odds: Ind OVER TT 26.5 points
It’s time to start paying attention to Indiana football. This is a scary good football team with Michael Penix, Jr. at quarterback. They can score, as evidenced in their recent games. They put up 31 on the road on a good Michigan State defense and 38 on the road a week ago in Nebraska. Northwestern has had great defensive performances this year, but against average offensive teams. The one strong offense they played, Ohio State, they gave up 52 points. A primetime game in Bloomington with a sold out crowd expected, it is going to be loud and motivational for Indiana. I like Indiana with the team total points but also the line as well at -8.5. Play both and take your winning ticket to the window.
Prediction: Indiana 38, Northwestern 14
