Bennett’s Picks for Week 6 College Football Betting
Kansas State @ Oklahoma State | Kansas State -11 | Total: 53.5
Kansas State has been a little bit of a wagon so far this season if you take out the Mizzou game. Even then, there was still a good amount of defense along with explosive offense from both teams. Oklahoma State has been a little bit of a dumpster fire having to play three different quarterbacks most of the time and that isn’t going to work out well for a team that throws the ball way more frequently than they run it. Bowman finally stepped up and was the only quarterback to throw the ball against Iowa State but he was still just fine. That all being said… the Cowboys can’t move the ball and Kansas State has a good defense that is good against the pass, and if you do try to move it on the ground they’re not going to let you. Kansas State’s offense isn’t explosive by any means but they should be able to ground and pound the Pokes into submission.
Pick: KState -11 (-110 on DraftKings)
LSU @ Mizzou | LSU -4.5 | Total: 64.5
I’m not going to sugar coat it. LSU broke my heart last week and it’s gearing up to be another shootout this week. Both these teams give up a ton of yards on the ground, through the air, literally everywhere. The Mizzou defense tends to not break when they bend a little better but they haven’t faced a quarterback or wide receiver group like LSU this year. LSU should be able to move the ball at will here and this game will come down to who makes the least amount of mistakes. We’ve seen what LSU can do and between this year and last year they are 4-1 after a loss with a total margin of victory just under 100 points. Missouri is also not historically a good home team under Drinkwitz.
Pick: LSU -4 (-110 on Caesars)
Georgia Tech @ Miami | Miami -20 | Total 57.5
Gonna keep this as plain and simple as I can. Tech doesn’t move the ball on early downs, on the ground, or through the air. Miami does move the ball on early downs, on the ground, and through the air. Miami gets the ball into scoring opportunities, the Jackets don’t. We’ve been riding with Miami on some pretty large spreads and I’m not afraid to do it again.
Pick: Miami -19.5 (-110 on DraftKings)

Rick’s Week 6 NCAAF Betting Picks
Oklahoma @ Texas -5 o/u @60.5
The Red River Rivalry sees its last matchup within the Big 12 this Saturday, so naturally the intensity surrounding this matchup is still high as ever. Both teams are undefeated heading into this matchup with aspirations of winning the BIG 12, and the winner of this game puts themselves right into the College Football Playoff picture.
The difference between these two teams is on the offensive end, but compared to previous Oklahoma and Texas matchups, their defenses are elite. Both teams have yet to allow more than 24 points this year, and while one most certainly will on Saturday, both won’t. I rate the defensive lines higher than the offensive lines and without an elite Oklahoma offense, give me the under with confidence.
Notre Dame @ Louisville +6.5 o/u @ 54
I’m not sure why we keep getting totals well above 50 with this Notre Dame team. Against Ohio State and Duke it was in the high fifties and the totals ended at 31 and 35. Louisville has struggled to score against solid defenses with 21 against Indiana and 13 to NC State, so I doubt they get over 24 points, and I don’t see Notre Dame putting up 30 or more. Give me an under for the third week running.
Additional play for College Football Betting this week:
Oregon State -9 @ Cal.
It’s the right thing to do.
Pat Taylor’s Picks for Week 6 College Football
Colorado @ ASU +4 o/u @ 60
Colorado might feel like the square play this weekend but let’s not kid ourselves, the Sun Devils are one of the worst teams in the Pac-12 and Power 5 football. Their defense is bad and their offense is even worse, ranking 120th in success rate. @StatsOWar has this at a 9 point winning margin for the Buffs and Coach Prime so I’ll happily take -4 on the road.
Play: Colorado -4
Alabama @ Texas A&M +1.5 o/u @ 47
Rumors are swirling about the hamstring of starting Alabama QB Jalen Milroe which could put his status in question. We know what the backup QBs look like and it is not pretty. Even if none of that comes to fruition, I love the spot for A&M. The Aggies have rolled outside of a blip on the radar at Miami (who might be legit). Max Johnson has been a steady hand since having to come in relief at starting QB. This defense is talented and can cause problems for whoever is behind center for the Tide. Despite Jimbo’s misgivings he always has played Bama tough. Give me A&M ML here since the 3 is long gone by this point.
Play: A&M ML
Andy’s College Football Week 6 Betting Picks
Kentucky @ Georgia -14.5 o/u @ 47.5
Saturday we will get to see a clash of undefeated SEC East teams as the Kentucky Wildcats head to Athens to take on the Georgia Bulldogs. If you saw this game on paper over the summer, the spread was in the low-to-mid 20’s. As we head into the weekend, the Bulldogs are sitting at -14.5, a number they have remained at all week with some books beginning to move them to 15 for good reason.
The hook does not scare me in this game, and it has recency bias written all over it. I do not put a lot of stock into Kentucky’s results this season, as their opponents include Ball State, Eastern Kentucky, Akron, Vanderbilt, and Florida. Blowing out a Florida team that had just upset Tennessee after Georgia barely pulled one out against Auburn makes this spread a lot smaller than it should be in a game that won’t even be close. Kirby Smart sat on the podium with a straight face this week saying every SEC team should be ranked, when deep down he knows what his team is about to do, and that is blow the brakes off of this Kentucky team.
Don’t get me wrong – I think the Wildcats can still wind up being a 7 to 8 win team if a couple of results go their way. However, their back half of the schedule is not as promising as the first five games, and it all starts with a team swimming with NFL talent in the Georgia Bulldogs who will give the Wildcats a wake up call at Sanford. Give me Georgia by two touchdowns and a point, as the hook is not going to scare me away from the classic overvalue and undervalue clash here as we enter the middle of the college football season. Don’t overthink it.
The Play: Georgia -14.5 (-110) – 1 Unit
Rusty’s Picks for College Football Week 6
Arizona @ USC -21.5 o/u @ 71.5
Last week my USC Team Total pick missed by just half a point. Half a point is not enough to scare me away from taking them again. This offense is too damn good. Plus my future on Caleb Williams Heisman looks pretty damn good right now.
The pick: USC team total o47.5 (-110 @ DraftKings Sportsbook)
Bama @ A&m +1.5 o/u @ 46.5
I will be transparent and admit that I think Alabama kinda blows this year. That’s not a hot take but still for honesty sake I’m putting that out there. BUT this feels like a “don’t overthink this” pick to me. I have a chance to get Bama ML and I’m going to trust Saban here.
The pick: Bama ML (-120 @ draftkings Sportsbook)
