Early College Football Week 6 Bets To Place
Week 5 is a bit of a lull compared to the loaded Week 4 schedule, so why not look ahead to Week 6? The slate is headlined by the final Big 12 matchup between Texas and Oklahoma, one that has high stakes with both teams off to a strong start.
Let’s take a look at the early odds for Week 6 and which bets are worth locking in right now.
Washington State (+4) vs. UCLA
I have been riding Washington State more and more lately, including ahead of their win over a very tough Oregon State defense in Week 4. That same Oregon State team just rolled over Utah, who rolled over UCLA in Week 4. The transitive property isn’t how football works, but there’s reason to believe Cameron Ward and the Cougars’ offense is simply better than anything UCLA can bring to the table right now.
Both of these teams are off this week, so line movement may be minimal, but what Oregon State did to Utah might linger in the minds of oddsmakers/ Ward made the Beavers’ defense look helpless. He can do the same to UCLA.
North Carolina (-6.5) vs. Syracuse
The Tar Heels are on their bye, so only one team can affect this line: Syracuse. The Orange might be running into Clemson at the wrong time. The Tigers looked pretty strong altogether against Florida State last week, outplaying the Seminoles in most phases of the game, but questionable coaching decisions and one critical mistake from Cade Klubnik cost them.
While those issues might not disappear all at once, it seems like Clemson is getting closer to being the team it can be. The Tigers might take their frustrations out on Syracuse this week.
Will that be enough to push this line to a touchdown or more? Drake Maye hasn’t looked convincing for much of the season, but UNC has won by 2+ touchdowns in three of four games. A home matchup with Syracuse is one the Heels can win comfortably.
Arkansas (+9.5) vs. Ole Miss
It hasn’t been the strongest season for the Razorbacks, who have a loss to BYU, but they looked competitive in a last-minute loss to LSU in Week 4.
Ole Miss struggled offensively against Alabama in Week 4, and the steep decline by the Rebels’ running game has lowered their ceiling this season. If Ole Miss hits another bump against LSU at home this weekend, which would come as no surprise considering how well the Tigers’ offense has been playing of late, this line could tilt in favor of Arkansas.
The Rebels were trounced by LSU last season, a loss that ended up turning their season in the wrong direction. Is it possible the loss to Alabama will have the same effect this season? The recent drop off by QB Jaxson Dart along with the struggling running game are bad signs for the immediate future. I’m locking in Arkansas +9.5 today.
Alabama (-3) vs. Texas A&M
Texas A&M just lost QB Conner Wiegman to a season-ending injury, which threatens to send the Aggies’ offense back to the depths it experienced early last season. If the offense does come out flat against Arkansas with Wiegman sidelined, oddsmakers are quickly going to lose faith in Jimbo Fisher’s team.
Arkansas’ offense is rumbling right along. While the Razorbacks’ defense has yet to catch up, it’s certainly possible Texas A&M just won’t have enough in the tank to keep up with Arkansas in Week 5. That won’t reflect well on the Aggies, who, like Ole Miss, likely don’t have the offense to deliver a blow to Alabama’s defense.
With Alabama starting to build back respectability after re-inserting Jalen Milroe at QB and taking down Ole Miss, it wouldn’t be surprising to see this line shift a point or two in the Tide’s favor before Week 6.
