SVP Picks for College Football Week 9

Every Thursday Night on SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt, SVP gives his favorite betting picks for the week in college football. This is not an information-filled set of picks, as SVP gives his choices, some brief reasoning (some tongue-in-cheek) and some laughter on set. With this being the first “Winners” segment back in the studio after two weeks, this will be a fun set of picks. Let’s take a look at his action for Week 9.


Florida Gators +14 vs. Georgia Bulldogs

Scott loves the Gators getting TWO touchdowns this week.

Mississippi State +1.5 vs. Kentucky

SVP talks about Mike Leach’s love for candy, so he likes MSST this week.

Washington +2.5 vs. Stanford

Why? SVP doesn’t know, he has. But he has Washington.

California +1.5 vs. Oregon State

SVP is not afraid of Oregon State, as he backs Berkeley.

Wisconsin -3.5 vs. Iowa

The Badgers are favored but unranked at home against a ranked team. General principle game.

Houston -1.5 vs. SMU 

SVP takes an unranked team at home again.

NC State -6.5 vs. Louisville

This is one that SVP added for no reason, really. He just wanted seven picks.

Stanford Steve’s Pick This Week

Kansas +30.5 vs. Oklahoma State. THIRTY POINTS.

Should I bet on Scott Van Pelt’s betting picks?

If you are wondering if Scott Van Pelt is worth tailing, the answer is yes and no. SVP has never claimed himself to be a top handicapper, as his picks are just for entertaining purposes. With that said, he is above .500 on the season and for his career. Given that he picks mostly upsets, that is relatively impressive. With that said, the “Winners” segment is still for entertainment first, picks second. Let’s look at his betting records on a week-to-week basis this year.
