There are around a dozen teams who appear to still be in the College Football Playoff conversation to some degree, and a few of them will have tough tests as the Week 9 college football schedule rolls around. The latest Week 9 college football odds from Caesars Sportsbook list No. 2 Ohio State as a 15.5-point favorite on the road against No. 13 Penn State. Top-ranked Georgia, meanwhile, is laying 23 points in the 3:30 p.m. ET SEC on CBS matchup against Florida.

No. 3 Tennessee is -11.5 against No. 19 Kentucky and No. 4 Michigan is -23 against rival Michigan State. Which sides should you back in those huge showdowns? And which other Week 9 college football lines have value on Saturday? Before making any Week 9 college football picks on those games or others, be sure to see the latest college football predictions from SportsLine's advanced computer model.

Top college football predictions for Week 9

One of the college picks the model is high on in Week 9: No. 9 Oklahoma State (+1.5) pulls off the outright upset and easily covers against No. 22 Kansas State on the road in a 3:30 p.m. ET matchup on Saturday. The Cowboys saw their playoff hopes take a huge hit when they lost to TCU two weeks back, but they bounced back for a solid win over Texas in Week 8.

Kansas State is the final ranked team remaining on Oklahoma State's schedule, so the Cowboys will be looking for a convincing win as they try to climb the rankings again. SportsLine's model believes the wrong team is favored here. Kansas State is unsure if starting quarterback Adrian Martinez (knee) will be able to play, and the model projects just 24 points for KSU. Oklahoma State covers well over 60% of the time, providing huge value as a small underdog in this spot. 

Another one of the model's top college football picks: No. 4 Michigan (-23) cruises to a blowout win against Michigan State on Saturday afternoon. The Spartans have struggled to get anything going in conference play this season, with their lone win coming in double overtime against a reeling Wisconsin team. They have been blown out by Minnesota, Maryland and Ohio State, which makes this look like another blowout spot on the schedule.

Michigan has won six of its seven games by double digits, including a 41-17 win over then-No. 10 Penn State its last time out. The Wolverines are led by star running back Blake Corum, who has rushed for 901 yards and 13 touchdowns, averaging 6.2 yards per carry. They have covered the spread in 12 of their last 17 games, while Michigan State has only covered once in its last five games.

Corum is rushing for almost 100 yards and more than one touchdown in the model's latest simulations. His success is one reason why Michigan is covering the spread well over 50% of the time. See which other teams the model likes here.
