Written by on July 31, 2019

Will the championship-hopeful Michigan Wolverines avoid the big upset at home against the stingy Iowa Hawkeyes when the two rivals square off in their Week 6 Big Ten battle? Staying in the Big Ten, Ohio State will look to take care of business at home against visiting Michigan State. Pac-12 resident Stanford hosts Washington in another intriguing Week 6 conference clash. If you’re fired up about the quickly approaching 2019 season, then let’s take a look at the College Football Week 6 betting matchups you must bet on.

2019 College Football Week 6 Must-Bet Games

Iowa at Michigan

  • When: Saturday, October 5, 2019
  • Where: Michigan Stadium, Ann Arbor, MI

Believe it or now, Iowa has won two straight in this series, by claiming home wins in 2013 and 2016. The Hawkeyes went 9-4 a year ago while averaging a respectable 31.2 points per game in 2018 (44th), but they were phenomenal defensively in limiting the opposition to just 17.8 points per contest to finish 11th nationally in points allowed.

Michigan went 10-3 on the year, but the Wolverines failed to live up to their College Football Playoff expectations again under head coach Jim Harbaugh despite ranking an encouraging 21st in scoring (35.2 ppg) and outstanding 16th in points allowed (19.4 ppg). With Iowa winning five of six in this series, an upset road win definitely looks like a possibility in this one.

Michigan State at Ohio State

  • When: Saturday, October 5, 2019
  • Where: Ohio Stadium, Columbus, OH

Michigan State went an uninspiring 7-6 last season while finishing a pitiful 126th in scoring (18.7 ppg), but an outstanding eighth in points allowed (17.2 ppg). The Spartans  have some experience back under center in senior Brian Lewerke, but the Big ten title hopefuls really need to address a rushing attack that finished a discouraging 115t nationally against the run.

Ohio State went a fantastic 13-1 last season and 9-1 in the Big Ten East division while ranking a stellar eighth in scoring (42.4 ppg) and a respectable 52nd in points allowed (25.5 ppg). The Buckeyes are getting set for their first full season under new head coach Ryan Day and without star defensive end Nick Bosa and gifted quarterback Dwayne Haskins who are both now playing their respective trades in the NFL. Can Michigan State avoid their third straight loss in this huge rivalry? I think not, even in Year 1 of the Ryan Day era.

Washington at Stanford

  • When: Saturday, October 5, 2019
  • Where: Stanford Stadium, Stanford, CA

Washington lost two of their biggest stars in program history following last season in quarterback Jake Browning and running back Myles Gaskin. Still, the Huskies are coming off a fine, 10-4 campaign in 2018 while fielding one of the best defensive units in all of college football. Stanford went a solid 9-4 a year ago while ranking 38th in points allowed and 73rd in scoring (28.4 ppg).  The Cardinal are in good shape at quarterback with junior K.J. Costello, but they’ve dropped two of their last three games against Washington, including last season’s narrow 27-23 road loss. This week 6 pairing looks like an affair that could very well come down to which team has the ball last.
