College Football Week 6 Betting
Week 6 of the college football betting season kicks off with a bang at online sportsbooks on Friday night in Cincinnati where the Bearcats will attempt to put an end to a three-season losing streak against Central Florida. A number of big time power conference matchups are on the docket Saturday with Sparty traveling to the Show to battle the Buckeyes, Texas shipping out to Morgantown to lock horns with the Mountaineers of West Virginia and Washington looking to take a third in four tries from Pac-12 North rival Stanford. The game likely garnering the most public action of the week will be the cross-divisional SEC showdown between the Auburn Tigers and Florida Gators from the Swamp. Buckle your seatbelts!
2019 College Football Week 6 Betting Schedule
College Football Thursday, October 3, 2019
Georgia Southern at South Alabama | 7:30pm | ESPNU
Temple at East Carolina | 8pm | ESPN
College Football Friday, October 4, 2019
UCF at Cincinnati | 8pm | ESPN
Since logging the impressive 52-7 win and cover as 26-point favorites back in 2015, Cincinnati has had no luck whatsoever running with the Knights of Central Florida. UCF has rattled off three straight wins and covers with the aggregate score of the matchups finding the Knights outscoring the Bearcats 113-39. Needless to say, Cincy failed to cover each of those battles as an underdog of 10.7 points on average. But Luke Fickell has Cincinnati’s football program on the rise! Fresh off an 11-2 campaign that stood out as one of the most surprising of the 2018-19 season, you can bet your bottom dollar the Bearcats had this one circled all offseason and will be stoked to host the Knights in front of a nationally televised audience. Desmond Ridder and the offense will be locked in and ready to go for this one after fizzling out in the Florida heat a season ago. Current power numbers have UCF and Cincinnati in a dead heat, so this year’s matchup will likely be more competitive than past versions.
New Mexico at San Jose State | 10pm | CBSSN
College Football Saturday, October 5, 2019
Illinois at Minnesota | 3:30
Northwestern at Nebraska | 3:30
Iowa at Michigan | 12pm
Purdue at Penn State | 12pm | ABC/ESPN/2
These non-divisional B1G rivals haven’t crossed paths on the gridiron since 2016 when James Franklin’s Nittany Lions busted out their whipping sticks and shellacked the Boilers 62-24 as 14.5-point road favorites. It just so happened that the massacre occurred at Ross-Ade Stadium in front of the Boiler faithful. With the ink on his fresh new offseason deal still drying and a top-25 recruiting class in town, Jeff Brohm has Purdue’s football program on the up and up with a coaching staff firmly aware of what the ultimate goal is – win the Big Ten! With a veteran and hopefully improved defense paired with what’s likely to be another explosive and efficient offense, Purdue is out to prove it belongs amongst the big boys. Snap a four-game losing streak in Happy Valley that dates back to 2005, and the Boilermakers will start grabbing some important people’s attention!
Tulane at Army | 12pm | CBSSN
Western Michigan at Toledo 3:30pm
Ohio at Buffalo | 3:30pm
Marshall at Middle Tennessee | 3:30pm | Facebook
Bowling Green at Notre Dame | 3:30pm | NBC
Air Force at Navy | 3:30pm | CBSSN
WKU at Old Dominion | 6pm | ESPN+
UMass at FIU | 7pm | ESPN3
Michigan State at Ohio State | 7:30pm | ABC or ESPN
This will be the Buckeyes first real test of the season. Some would argue it came last week at Nebraska, but CFB bettors will be a bit more interested in seeing how Ohio State reacts to coming off such a hyped game from the previous week. After cruising through its non-conference slate and battling Indiana in its first conference test of the season, this matchup against a Spartans team will go a long way in determining just what type of team new head coach Ryan Day has at his disposal. While Sparty struggled most of last season, we’re still talking about a program that’s gone bowling four of the last five seasons under Dantonio with a CFP entry in the mix. With a new-look up-tempo offense in tow, we might finally see these teams play to some high scorers after boring the lights out of those that watched their last four matchups. That is unless you hammered the under at online sportsbooks!
UTSA at UTEP | 8pm | ESPN+
Boise State at UNLV | 10:30pm | CBSSN
Arkansas State at Georgia State
San Diego State at Colorado State
Maryland at Rutgers
Memphis at ULM
North Carolina at Georgia Tech
Oklahoma at Kansas
Oklahoma State at Texas Tech
Oregon State at UCLA
Pitt at Duke
Rice at UAB
TCU at Iowa State
Kent State at Wisconsin
Texas at West Virginia
West Virginia had an offense assembled that could compete with the best of defenses last season. Unfortunately, its defense did next to nothing to prevent opposing teams from racking up big point totals themselves. Because of it, the Mountaineers went on to lose a total of four games which included falling to Syracuse in the bowl game; a matchup Will Grier actually sat out. Though a number of key contributors from that offense are no longer members of the team, new head coach Neal Brown has sparked a renewed sense of optimism in Morgantown with his family-first approach. Players, parents and boosters are all buying into it; but will it all amount to more wins than a season ago? Not if Texas can help it with the Longhorns aiming extremely high in believing they have what it takes to win it all regardless of the fact that their odds to do just that checks in at 20-1. Current Game of the Year lines have the Horns laying 7-points on the road even though WVU has had their number in winning three of the last four confrontations.
Troy at Missouri
Tulsa at SMU
USF at UConn
Utah State at LSU
Vanderbilt at Ole Miss
Virginia Tech at Miami (FL)
Washington at Stanford
These Pac-12 North rivals have alternated wins against one another each of the last three seasons. It was the Huskies time to reign supreme a year ago after logging the 27-23 win that saw them need to hold on for dear life in the second half even though it took a 21-0 lead with it into halftime. Unfortunately for those that laid the near 10-points at top rated sportsbooks, Chris Petersen’s kids failed to cover the closing college football odds. U-Dub will now be out to log successive victories against the Tree for the first time since the 2001 and 2003 seasons. Should David Shaw’s squad enter this matchup in good shape after taking on the likes of Northwestern, USC, UCF and both Oregon schools, a win here would go a long way in letting the nation know that Stanford is back and should be taken as a serious conference title contender. All that will likely depend on the type of team the Cardinal choose to be this season. The one that shrunk the clock with a power running game and dominant defense, or the one that looked to chuck the ball on every down and turned it over relentlessly. Washington will likely be hoping for the latter – it would have a field day with that one.
Liberty at New Mexico State
Georgia at Tennessee
California at Oregon
Boston College at Louisville
Baylor at Kansas State
Ball State at NIU
Auburn at Florida
Recent results against Auburn have been nothing short of nightmarish for the Gator faithful. Since destroying the Tigers in both the regular season and the SEC title game back in 2000, the Gators have amassed a grand total of one win through five tries. On top of that, they failed to cover the closing college football betting odds in each and evert one of those matchups. Dan Mullen has stated repeatedly that his No. 1 goal throughout his stay in Gainesville is to put the Florida program back on the map as the most dominant in the country. You remember the Steve Spurrier days, right? If ever there was an opportunity to start making good on that promise, this is it. Having already run up against Miami, Kentucky and Tennessee – three teams on par with Auburn – the Gators shouldn’t have much of a problem making a statement in this one. The Game of the Year lines has Feleipe Franks and his teammates lined as 7-point favorites to come out on top of this one, but that looks to be a bit short.
