The lone betting trend to come through last weekend was the Oklahoma-TCU under, which wasn't even close. Do we have some more winners in store for Week 9?

Here are some angles to keep on your radar for this upcoming weekend.

Georgia due to bounce back

The last time we saw Georgia in action, it was no match for a potent Alabama offense. How will head coach Kirby Smart respond in Week 9?

The Bulldogs are 16-5 against the spread the last 21 games following an outright loss, which doesn't happen often in Athens. Smart and the Bulldogs have also been a great bet on the road, covering 20 of the last 28.

Georgia should steamroll a Kentucky team that posted 145 yards of total offense against Missouri last weekend.

Trend play: Georgia -15

Michigan State struggling as a road underdog

Michigan State got off on the wrong foot to start the 2020 season, losing outright to Rutgers as a double-digit favorite. Things don't get any easier in Week 9 against archrival Michigan, which embarrassed Minnesota on the road last Saturday.

Here, we want to fade the Spartans, who are 0-6 ATS the last six when getting points and 0-4 ATS the last four as road underdogs. Michigan State has also struggled to cover in Big Ten play, going just 1-7 ATS the last eight conference games.

Trend play: Michigan -24.5

Home team on a roll in LSU-Auburn series

It's a battle of the Tigers when LSU travels to take on Auburn. Both programs have been uncharacteristically spotty this season, losing multiple games so far. In a toss-up of which team you trust more, bettors should side with the home team.

Not only has the underdog cashed each of the last four meetings between these two, but the home team is also 8-3 ATS the last 11.

Take the points with Auburn.

Trend play: Auburn +3

Points coming in Tuscaloosa?

Is this the week Mississippi State finally recaptures its magic from Week 1 and puts some points on the board? After erupting for 44 en route to upsetting LSU in the opener, the Bulldogs haven't scored more than 14 in any of their last three games.

This might be a good spot to play the over. Alabama has cashed 19 of the last 26 after allowing fewer than 20 points in its previous game, while the Bulldogs are 4-1 to the over the last five on the road.

Trend play: Over 63.5

James Franklin, Penn State won't be fazed by Ohio State

Penn State and Ohio State are coming off completely opposite results in the opener. The Nittany Lions lost on the road to Indiana as seven-point favorites, while the Buckeyes pasted Nebraska 52-17.

Despite the way these two teams are trending, consider Penn State plus the points. Head coach James Franklin has covered each of the last four in this series and the home team is 5-2 ATS in the last seven.

Trend play: Penn State +12
