2019 College Football Week 6 Odds, Overview & Picks

No. 18 Central Florida (4-1) at Cincinnati (3-1)

    • When: Friday, October 4, 2019 at 8:00 PM ET
    • Where: Nippert Stadium, Cincinnati, Ohio

Central Florida bounced back from their one-point road loss against Pittsburgh to lay a huge, 56-21 smackdown on Connecticut last weekend while Cincinnati also topped the half-century mark by spanking Marshall 52-14 the last time out. Central Florida has won three straight in this AAC rivalry including an emphatic 38-13 beat-down as a 6.5-point home favorite a year ago.

The Knights are a near-perfect 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 conference games while Cincinnati has gone 5-16 ATS in their last 21 games against a team with a winning record and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games vs. a team with a winning road record. With the favorite in this rivalry going 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings and the Knights getting some phenomenal play from quarterback Dillon Gabriel, UCF is the pick to win and narrowly cover the chalk.

Pick: Central Florida -4

No. 25 Oklahoma State (4-1) at Texas Tech (2-2)

Outside of their narrow 36-30 loss to Texas, Oklahoma State is looking rock-solid this season and they come into this contest off a 26-13 home win over K-State as a 4-point favorite last weekend. Texas Tech has dropped two straight including their embarrassing 55-16 road loss against mighty Oklahoma last weekend that came on the heels of their 28-14 smackdown loss to Arizona a week earlier.

While the Red Raiders got a stunning 41-17 road win over the Cowboys a year ago, Oklahoma State had won each of the previous nine meetings and I fully expect the Cowboys to get back in the win column against their conference rivals in this affair despite being on the road. Oklahoma State running back Chuba Hubbard is having a campaign for the ages with 938 yards so far this season while averaging a mind-boggling 7.3 yards per carry. Hubbard has rushed for over 256 yards in two of his last three games, including a stupendous 296 yards last weekend. The road team in this Big 12 rivalry has gone 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings and Oklahoma State is 4-1 in the last five. No doubt…the Cowboys win big here to cover the chalk with room to spare!

Pick: Oklahoma State -10

No. 14 Iowa (4-0) at No. 18 Michigan (3-1)

  • When: Saturday, October 5, 2019 at 12:00 PM ET
  • Where: Michigan Stadium, Ann Arbor, Michigan
  • College Football Week 6 Odds: Michigan -3.5/ Total: 48

Iowa is looking great heading into their matchup against Michigan this coming weekend. The Hawkeyes are coming off an emphatic 48-3 spanking of Middle Tennessee State last weekend and they’ve held the opposition to 17 points or less in every game this season, although it should be noted they haven’t played the best competition through four games.

Michigan bounced back nicely from their resounding loss against Wisconsin one week earlier to shut Rutgers out 52-0 last weekend, but the Wolverines are clearly a team with problems this season. To make matters worse for No. 18 Michigan, they’ve also dropped two straight and four of the last five meetings against the Hawkeyes, including a crushing 14-13 road loss last season.

The underdog in this Big Ten rivalry is11-3 in the last 14 meetings and Iowa has gone 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games after limiting their previous opponent to less than 100 rushing yards. With Michigan going 1-7 ATS in their last eight games and 0-5 ATS in their last five games following an SU win, I think the handwriting is on the wall here. Iowa gets the win by shutting down Shea Patterson and the rest of Michigan’s wobbly offense.

Pick: Iowa +3.5
