College Football Week 6 Predictions

College Football Week 6 Predictions

For my money, there's nothing better than wagering on college football.

There's simply more value and weaker lines than in any other sport. With no marquee games this weekend, there's still plenty of action to get the pulse racing and the pockets lined.

Minnesota @ Purdue (-4) O/U: 45.5 (Oct 7,3:30 ET)

This game features two of the nation's best and brightest young coaches in Minnesota's PJ Fleck and Purdue's Jeff Brohm. Both coaches are in year one at their respective schools, and both have generated plenty of buzz around campus early in the season. 

Minnesota (3-1) comes off a bye week after losing 31-24 to a solid Maryland squad September 30. Purdue (2-2) suffered both its losses to ranked opponents and played each one -Louisville and Purdue - close well into the fourth quarter. 

Brohm and Fleck are offensive-minded coaches with Minnesota scoring 48,34 and 24 in its last three games and Purdue reaching at least 35 against everyone but Michigan this season.

This will be an entertaining game with plenty of quick-hitters and passing yards and probably even a few gadget plays thrown in. I see lots of scoring here.

Kent State @ Northern Illinois (-23.5) O/U: 46 (Oct 7,3:30 ET)

If you enjoy good college football, I'm sorry to add this one to the list, but if you enjoy making money read on. Really there's not even that much to read. Kent State is awful - one of the worst teams in college football - and has an offensive unit that would struggle to score against air. 

Clearly, the oddsmakers expect NIU to do all of the scoring here, but I can't see how Kent State manages over 10 points. I hate asking a team to cover this many points, so let's take the under here knowing that Kent State won't contribute much to that 46-point total.

Take the UNDER 46 Bovada

Miami @ Florida State (PK) O/U: 46 (Oct 7, 3:30 ET) 

Florida State is a tough team to read so far this year due to the injury of QB Deondre Francois in the opener against Alabama and the fact that they've only played three games because of the effects of Hurricane Irma. What seems clear about the Noles, however is that they are legitimate on defense.

Under coach Mark Richt, Miami likes to throw the ball around and score points. That is also FSU head coach Jimbo Fischer's preferred style, but given Francois' injury, the Noles probably play this one a little closer to the vest while trying to salvage their once-promising 2017 season.

FSU at home seems like the play here.

NCAAF Bowls: 2019-20 College Football Playoff Favorites 

For decades, the NCAA didn't determine its national football champion until the Tuesday following the final bowl games. NCAA coaches and sportswriters would cast ballots to determine the eventual national champion. That system was finally changed to a playoff format in 1998. Originally called the Bowl Championship Series, it pitted No. 1 vs No. 2 in a sudden-death game. The current four-team College Football Playoff was initiated in 2014.
