Week Six College Football Best Bets

Don’t look now, but here comes another exciting week of college football! Let’s take a closer look at what we have to look forward to in Week Six!

The gambling Gods answered our prayers! We are building momentum going into Week Six of the College Football season! After a 6-2 week, we are now 19-15 on the year! With these eight Week Six Best Bets, we should continue to cash those tickets!

Florida St @ #14 North Carolina St (NCST -3 -110)

Both of these teams are coming off a loss to a higher-ranked opponent. NC St. put up a good fight against #5 Clemson at Clemson. Florida St lost at home against #22 Wake Forest. Florida St. is also dealing with a lot of injury problems.

NC St. has more talent up front, and I think they will be putting a lot of pressure on FSU Quarterback Jordan Travis. I think Florida St. is going to try and run the ball against this good NC St. secondary and with the injuries to their offensive line, I think NC St goes up early and FSU can’t recover. I’ll take NC St to cover the three.

Air Force @ Utah St (Air Force -10.5 -110)

Utah St. is a bad team. They have a 1-4 record and the only team they beat was UCONN in Week Zero of the College Football season. Utah St. Also allows 188.4 rushing yards per game.

I don’t know if you have watched a lot of Air Force games this year, but they know how to run the ball. Air Force is averaging 369.8 rushing yards per game. I am looking for Air Force to run the ball and run it efficiently against a bad Utah St. team. Air Force is one of my Week Six Best Bets.

North Carolina @ Miami (North Carolina +3.5 -110)

Miami has had a very weird season. Coming into the year Quarterback Tyler Van Dyke was a dark horse candidate for Heisman. He now finds himself with 809 passing yards, only four touchdowns, and three interceptions. The Mario Cristobal-led Hurricanes also just lost to Middle Tennessee State at home.

Miami is trending in a downward spiral right now. Meanwhile, North Carolina might have one of the most electrifying offenses in College Football. Quarterback Drake Maye has been nothing short of amazing, with 1,594 passing yards, 19 passing touchdowns, and only one interception, Drake Maye is the guy. I think Miami is going to struggle to keep up with North Carolina’s high-scoring offense. Look for UNC to win outright!

Ball St @ Central Michigan (Ball St +8.5 -110)

This bet is mainly because I see Ball St. and Central Michigan as more or less the same team. They both are allowing almost identical stats this year with points allowed and points scored. I think this game will involve a very run-heavy game and a lot of punting.

I don’t think Central Michigan can score enough points to beat Ball St. by multiple scores. I also don’t think there will be a ton of points scored in this game due to both of these teams struggling to score. Look at the game total under 63.5 to be another bet this week.

#11 Utah @ #18 UCLA (Utah -3.5 -110)

This in my eyes, is a classic hangover game. UCLA just had a big win against #15 Washington to get their first good win of the season. Utah lost to Florida in their home opener, and they have bounced back from that loss. They find themselves with a 4-1 record heading to play a UCLA team with all the hype.

UCLA’s defense isn’t great against the pass allowing 237.6 yards per game. I am looking for Utah QB Cam Rising to have a huge game against the UCLA Bruins. Utah is the better team and I think they take care of UCLA on the road.

Akron @ Ohio (Akron +11 -110)

This is a game that for me is about the points. Looking at Akron and what they have done this year so far, it hasn’t been much. What I can see is that they are getting better each week. Last week they scored 28 against a solid Bowling Green team and held them to 31 points. When you look at the 38 points per game allowed stat for Akron, it doesn’t give you the full picture.

Akron had Tennessee drop 63 on them and Michigan St put up 52. Those were two highly-ranked teams going into their respective matchups. On the flip side, Ohio allows 42 points per game and their best opponent this year was Penn St or Iowa St. I think Akron is a better team than their stats show, and I think they cover the 11-point spread.

#8 Tennessee @ #25 LSU (TENN -3 -110)

The Tennessee Volunteers have been one of the best teams in all of College Football this season. Quarterback Hendon Hooker has propelled himself into the Heisman race with 1193 passing yards and eight passing touchdowns. Tennessee is 4-0 heading into this game, and they had an extra week to prepare for this up-and-down LSU team.

The Volunteers put up big numbers and I think they want to be 5-0 heading into next week against Alabama. I think Tennessee goes into Death Valley and puts up a big scoring day that LSU won’t be able to keep up with. TENN -3 is one of my Week Six Best Bets.

Iowa @ Illinois (Illinois -3.5 -110)

We talked about it last week. Bret Bielema gets his team ready on defense for away games. He also does fantastic at home. Illinois is only allowing 8.4 points per game this season and only 70.2 rushing yards per game. This tells me that Illinois is going to make Iowa QB Spencer Petras throw the ball, and no one wants to see him struggle to do that.

Petras has a QBR of 17.8 which is 128th in all of college football. He has two touchdowns and two interceptions with only 770 yards passing. He is awful and the Iowa offense is even worse. Iowa is averaging 16.4 points per game. I see Illinois beating Iowa by a few scores. The Fighting Illini are one of my Week Six Best Bets.

Hopefully we can continue the success of last week! For more College Football news and Best Bets check out Stadiumrant.com!
