College Football PrizePicks CFB Top Picks Week 9 Saturday

Max Duggan, TCU – OVER 2.0 Pass TDs

TCU remains undefeated in large part because of a dangerous offense, led by quarterback Max Duggan. The Horned Frogs have scored at least 38 points in every game and are averaging 43.5 PPG against Big 12 competition. Duggan himself has tossed 19 touchdowns over six starts this year and has at least three pass TDs in five of six contests. Now he gets to face a West Virginia defense that's been getting lit up lately. The Mountaineers have given up at least 38 points to every Big 12 opponent and the defense has allowed 13 passing scores over four conference matchups so far. Banking on three TDs is tough, but Duggan has consistently shown he's able to do it and has a favorable matchup here.

Travis Dye, USC – OVER 118.5 Rush+Rec Yards

In case you didn't know, the Arizona defense is terrible. The Wildcats are giving up 454.1 total yards per game this season (118th in FBS) and 528.5 total yards during conference play (124th). Opposing Pac-12 offenses are having a field day in this matchup and USC's high-scoring, fast-paced attack will surely do the same. Travis Dye, in particular, will be again be a huge part of USC's offense. The Trojans' running back has gone over 118.5 combined rushing and receiving yards in five of the last six games. Dye is usually getting it done on the ground with 100+ rushing yards in four of the past six, and now he'll face an Arizona defense that's getting gashed for 207.43 rush yards per game and 5.81 ypc this year. Yikes! Dye could also be used in the passing game more than usual as Jordan Addison is questionable with an injury.

Raheim Sanders, Arkansas – OVER 19.5 Fantasy Score

Let's go from one favorable matchup to another. Raheim Sanders will face an Auburn rush defense that's allowing 204.71 rushing yards per game and 4.81 ypc this season. The Tigers have been even worse during conference play, giving up 264.5 rushing yards per game and 5.4 ypc to SEC opponents. Plus, Auburn's defense has allowed 13 rush TDs over four conference matchups already. Put it all together and it should lead to a big game for Sanders, who's put up 20+ fantasy points in five of the last six games. He's Arkansas' workhorse and should see 20-25 touches in this game with some receiving production added in. 

Elijah Higgins, Stanford – OVER 58.5 Receiving Yards

This one may seem random, but this 58.5 receiving yards line is a tad too low. Elijah Higgins has 68, 81, and 73 receiving yards in the past three games and has emerged as a reliable target for Stanford QB Tanner McKee. He'll also be locked into more targets than normal with Michael Wilson out for the Cardinals. We saw Higgins put up six catches for 73 yards last game without Wilson, who is out for the foreseeable future. Plus, Stanford will likely be throwing a bunch in this game as a 16.5-point underdog to UCLA. Meanwhile, that Bruins' defense is allowing 293 passing yards per game to Pac-12 opponents.

MarShawn Lloyd, South Carolina – OVER 77.5 Rush Yards

South Carolina's record would look a lot worse if it didn't have MarShawn Lloyd in the backfield. The Gamecocks' bell-cow back has gone over this 77.5 rushing yards in four straight games with 80+ yards in each. He's seen 22 and 18 carries in the past two matchups against Kentucky and Texas A&M, respectively, and should see a similar workload in this matchup against Missouri. On the surface, Mizzou's rush defense has been solid stats-wise, but it hasn't really faced good rushing attacks yet. Looking closer at some of Missouri's matchups, though, there's a path for Lloyd to goer 77.5 rushing yards if he gets 15-20 carries. Mizzou allowed Georgia's three-headed backfield to rack up 177 yards, Kansas State's Deuce Vaughn went for 145, and Florida's backfield duo combined for 169.
