2019 NCAA Football Week 6 Betting
Week 6 of the college football betting season kicks off on Thursday, but there’s a banger of a game on Friday night in Cincinnati. The Bearcats will attempt to put an end to a three-season losing streak against UCF, establishing themselves as the preeminent power in the AAC. A number of big time power conference matchups are on the docket Saturday with Sparty traveling to Columbus 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. That’s the site of College Gameday this week, and the atmosphere should be electric. Buckle your seatbelts!
2019 College Football Week 6 Betting Schedule
College Football Thursday, October 3, 2019
Georgia Southern at South Alabama (+11.5) | 7:30pm | ESPNU
Temple at East Carolina (+12) | 8pm | ESPN
College Football Friday, October 4, 2019
UCF at Cincinnati (+4) | 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 UCF. The Knights have rattled off three straight wins and covers by a combined margin of 113-39. Cincinnati 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 a game that every college football fan will be watching on Friday night.
New Mexico at San Jose State (-7) | 10pm | CBSSN
College Football Saturday, October 5, 2019
Iowa at Michigan (-4.5) | 12pm | FOX
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. 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 – winning the Big Ten! However, the Boilermakers still have some growing pains to overcome, and it’s clear the preseason hype was a bit too much for a team that doesn’t have all the talent in place quite yet. Keeping it close will be an accomplishment against a Penn State team that likes to run it up.
Tulane at Army (+3) | 12pm | CBSSN
Oklahoma at Kansas (+35.5) | 12pm | ABC
Maryland at Rutgers (+13) | 12pm | Big Ten Network
Oklahoma State at Texas Tech (+8.5) | 12pm | FS1

Bowling Green at Notre Dame (-45) | 3:30pm | NBC
Air Force at Navy (+2) | 3:30pm | CBSSN
Auburn at Florida (+2.5) | 3:30pm | CBS
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 every 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.
Virginia Tech at Miami (FL) (-14) | 3:30pm | ESPN
Illinois at Minnesota (-13.5) | 3:30pm | Big Ten Network
Arkansas State at Georgia State (+7.5) | 3:30pm | ESPN+
Texas at West Virginia (+11.5) | 3:30pm | ABC
West Virginia had an offense assembled that could compete with the top defenses in the country last season. Unfortunately, its defense did next to nothing to prevent opposing teams from racking up big point totals themselves. The Mountaineers are now in rebuilding mode under new head coach Neal Brown, and this is not the high-flying West Virginia team we have seen in the past. That could lead to Texas running it up despite the Red River Showdown being on tap next week. Tom Herman and the Longhorns haven’t forgotten about West Virginia flashing ‘Horns Down’ last season in Austin, so this one could get ugly.
Memphis at Louisiana-Monroe (+14) | 3:45pm | ESPNU
North Carolina at Georgia Tech (+9.5) | 4pm | ACC Network
Troy at Missouri (-25.5) | 4pm | SEC Network
Northwestern at Nebraska (-7) | 4pm | FOX
Arizona at Colorado (-3) | 4:30pm | Pac 12 Network
Western Kentucky at Old Dominion (+3) | 6pm | ESPN+
UMass at FIU (-27) | 7pm | ESPN3
Georgia at Tennessee (+25.5) | 7pm | ESPN
Rice at UAB (-10) | 7pm | ESPN+
Tulsa at SMU (-13) | 7:30pm | ESPNU
Vanderbilt at Ole Miss (-7.5) | 7:30pm | SEC Network
Michigan State at Ohio State (-19.5) | 7:30pm | ABC
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 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. Michigan State has the second-best defense in the country per SP+ coming into this game, and the Spartans have a knack for making games ugly.
UTSA at UTEP (+2) | 8pm | ESPN+
Liberty at New Mexico State (+6.5) | 8pm | FLO
Pitt at Duke (-5) | 8pm | ACC Network
California at Oregon (-18) | 8pm | FOX
Oregon State at UCLA (-7.5) | 9pm | Pac 12 Network
San Diego State at Colorado State (+7) | 10pm | ESPN2
Boise State at UNLV (+24) | 10:30pm | CBSSN
Washington at Stanford (+14.5) | 10:30pm | ESPN
These Pac-12 North rivals have alternated wins against one another in each of the last three seasons. After holding on for a win in Seattle last season, U-Dub will now be out to log successive victories against the Tree for the first time since the 2001 and 2003 seasons. The Huskies are hefty road favorites per the college football betting odds as Stanford has had some real problems through the early part of the season, and KJ Costello won’t be fully healthy even if he does get the start at quarterback.
