Damico’s Depository + CFB Week 9 Game Picks


Givanni Damico | October 27th, 2019 

Welcome back to my locks and game picks! Last week I went 4-4 on my locks, which is not ideal. That makes me 15-11 (.577) on locks so far this year. I’ve got eight more bets for you guys this week. Let’s improve on the last two weeks.

Liberty -7.5 at Rutgers

Rutgers is incapable of throwing the football. It’s amazing to me how absolutely none of their quarterbacks have any competence. This should be an easy game for Liberty.


2 LSU -10 vs. 9 Auburn

Auburn has a very weak secondary that will be facing the number two passing offense in the country. This is a recipe for disaster for the Tigers from Auburn, Alabama.

Indiana +2 at Nebraska

Indiana has played tough football this year against good competition. Nebraska is allowing more points than it scores which sets Indiana up for a conference victory.


24 Arizona State -3 at UCLA

UCLA has upset Stanford and Washington State, but Arizona State won’t fall victim to the same ordeal. Their defense will be able to control UCLA’s offense. UCLA’s defense is very weak which should allow Eno Benjamin and the Sun Devils to put up some points and cover the spread.

South Carolina -4.5 at Tennessee

Although the Vols looked competent at times against Alabama last week, they’ll fall back down to Earth this week (not that they did anything special last week). South Carolina and Ryan Hilinksi were able to upset Georgia, so beating Tennessee by a touchdown should not be a problem.

Arizona +1.5 at Stanford

Stanford has been a huge let down this year. After a crushing loss to UCLA last week, Arizona and Khalil Tate should be able to take care of the Cardinal with ease. 

8 Notre Dame (even spread) at 19 Michigan

This spread is even right now so whoever wins will cover the spread. Notre Dame and Ian Book will expose TTUN’s defense while Shea Patterson will struggle tomorrow in Ann Arbor.


15 Texas (even spread) at TCU

I don’t really understand this spread, but, ok. Cool. Hook ‘Em.

Game Picks

Last week: 38-15

Overall Picking Record: 287-100 (.742)


13 Wisconsin at 3 Ohio State -14.5

My Pick: THE Ohio State University

It’s going to be a rainy day where defenses may prevail. Last week proved that the Buckeye’s defense is more elite than the Badgers’. 

5 Oklahoma -23.5 at Kansas State

My Pick: Oklahoma

20 Iowa -9 at Northwestern

My Pick: Iowa

21 Appalachian State -27.5 at South Alabama
