Week 9 college football point spread: Nebraska, Florida, Kansas

In this section we look into the point spread and betting odds on the Week 9 college football games Nebraska vs. Texas, Georgia at Florida and Kansas vs. Texas A&M.

Week 9 college football point spread: Nebraska, Florida, Kansas Week 9 of college football promises plenty of heavyweight games and matchups. We start with the Saturday game between the Nebraska Cornhuskers (4-4) and No.17 Texas Longhorns (6-2). This is the game which will either make or break the sportsbooks. The Longhorns are listed favorite at Bookmaker with odds on winning the home game at -1600 and the Huskers are underdog with odds +1050 (if they win the bookie will pay out 1050 for every 100 bet). The point spread on the Nebraska vs. Texas is favoring the Longhorns -21 points with total sitting at 58 points. Nebraska is 0-5 against the spread in its last 5 games and the total has gone UNDER in 4 of Nebraska's last 5 games on the road. Texas is 21-4 SU in its last 25 games at home and the total has gone OVER in 5 of Texas's last 7 games.

 Nebraska has lost three straight games already and coach Bill Callahan complained today that his uncertain future with the college football team is "is undercutting his ability to recruit." Callahan also announced that offensive lineman Lydon Murtha will miss the rest of the season with a toe injury and linebackers Bo Ruud and Blake Lawrence are day-to-day, and so is center Brett Byford. If Byford is unable to play on Saturday, Jacob Hickman would move from left guard to center, and Mike Huff would start at left guard position.

 From Texas we go east to Jacksonville Municipal Stadium, where the No.9 Florida Gators (5-2) will welcome the No. 20 Georgia Bulldogs (5-2). The Gators are clear favorite at Bookmaker with odds -355 and the Bulldogs hold the underdog odds of +295. The point spread for the Georgia vs. Florida game is sitting at -9 points chalk the Gators with a total of 55.5 points. Lat time the two SEC teams met in 2006 the Gators won the game 21-14. Betting trends indicate that Georgia is 3-6 against the spread in its last 9 games when playing Florida and the total has gone UNDER in 5 of Georgia's last 6 games when playing Florida. The Gators are 4-2 against the spread in their last 6 games.

 And for the last betting preview we go back to Texas. The No.12 Kansas Jayhawks (7-0) will visit the Texas A&M Aggies (6-2). Will Kansas be able to hold on to their unbeaten record this Saturday - Bookmaker thinks so, listing the Jayhawks at -130 and the Aggies underdog with odds +110. The point spread on the Kansas vs. Texas A&M game is posted at -2 points chalk Kansas and the total is set down at 55.5 points. Kansas is 5-0 against the spread  in its last 5 games and 5-1 ATS in its last 6 games on the road. The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Texas A&M's last 5 games.

 Kansas is leading the BIG12 by point scored and points allowed, 45.9 and 10.1 respectively. Kansas also leads the BIG12 in defense with only 277.1 yards allowed on average per game, compared to Texas A&M with 411.3 yards per game. If this average stays true on Saturday, the Jayhawks have the potential to cover much bigger spread than the posted -2 points. The last time Kansas met with Texas A&M, however, the Aggies won the game 21-18. So far only defensive end Jeff Wheeler is probable for Week 9 with arm injury.
