Week Nine point spreads and championship odds: road visitors are tight chalk this weekend

Auburn -2 and Clemson -2.5 are just some of this week’s tight road lines.

Las Vegas

I love that Auburn line at -2 versus the SEC’s worst defense, Hawaii giving 2 at home, ISU getting a full touchdown at home, and Tennessee at twelve and the hook. I just don’t know how South Carolina is going to score...pretty much ever again.

Games I’m not touching this week are weirdly the marquee ones. Eight feels like too much for the UW-Nubber game, I never bet the WLOCP, and Clemson has historically struggled in Tallahassee (and particularly the past two meetings there.)
