2019 College Football Week 6 Parlay Betting Picks
Utah State (3-1) at No. 6 LSU (4-0)
- When: Saturday, October 5, 2019 at 12:00 PM ET
- Where: Tiger Stadium, Baton Rouge, Louisiana
- College Football Week 6 Odds: LSU -27.5 / Total: 74
Utah State has won three straight since dropping their regular season opener including a solid 34-24 home win over Colorado State last weekend, though they never came close to covering the chalk as a 24-point favorite. LSU keeps looking better and better each week and the Tigers come into this one off an emphatic 66-38 smackdown of Vanderbilt two weeks ago as quarterback Joe Burrow continued his assault on the Tiger’s passing history records by tossing six TD passes.
With the Tigers averaging almost 20 points per game more than the Aggies and playing at home, I’m thinking the College Football Playoff hopefuls are looking rock-solid, even as 27.5-point favorites in this one.
While Utah State has gone a perfect 7-0 ATS in their last seven non-conference games and 5-1 ATS in their last six games against a team with a winning record, LSU is 5-1 ATS in their lasts ix games against a team with a winning record and 11-3 in their last 14 games in the month of October. I don’t like the high spread, but I’m going with LSU to cover it by putting at least 50 points on the board for the fourth time this season.
Pick: LSU -27.5
Purdue (1-3) at No. 11 Penn State (4-0)
- When: Saturday, October 5, 2019 at 12:00 PM ET
- Where: Beaver Stadium, University Park, Pennsylvania
- College Football Week 6 Odds: Penn State -28 / Total: 56
Purdue comes into this contest off a hard-fought 38-31 home loss to Minnesota last weekend as a 2-point home fave and the Boilermakers have allowed at least 34 points in each of their three losses this season. Penn State absolutely throttled Maryland en route to their overpowering 59-0 shutout win last weekend as a 6.5-point road favorite and the Nittany Lions have not allowed more than 13 points in any of their four games this season. Starting quarterback Sean Clifford has thrown for 1,169 yards this season with nine TD passes and just one interception and the Big ten playoff hopefuls are ranked a stupendous second in points allowed nationally (7.5 ppg).
Purdue has gone 1-4 ATS in their last five road games and 0-4 ATS in their last four games against a team with a winning record. Conversely, Penn State has gone a near-perfect 8-1 ATS in their last 9 home games vs. a team with a losing road record, a bankroll-boosting 24-6-1 ATS in their last 31 games following a straight up win and a equally impressive 17-6-2 ATS in their last 25 home games. The spread here might look daunting, but after watching Penn State pound the hell out of a Maryland team that looks eerily similar to Purdue, I’m going with the Nittany Lions to cover the chalk as a four-touchdown favorite!
Pick: Penn State -28
No. 12 Texas (3-1) at West Virginia (3-1)
- When: Saturday, October 5, 2019 at 3:30 PM ET
- Where: Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium, Morgantown, West Virginia
- College Football Week 6 Odds: Texas -10.5 / Total: 61
Texas has won two straight including their hard-fought 36-30 win over Oklahoma State last weekend as a 7-point home favorite. The Longhorns have put 36 points or more on the board in all four of their games this season although they’ve allowed 30 or more in two of their games so far this season. West Virginia has also won two straight including a 29-24 win over Kansas last weekend as a 4.5-point road favorite. The Mountaineers also recorded a 42-41 upset road win over the Horns last season and they’ve won three of the last four meetings overall.
While West Virginia looked awful in their 38-7 Week 2 blowout road loss at Missouri and Texas’ only loss this season was a thrilling 45-38 home loss against an elite LSU team in Week 2, I’m going with the Mountaineers to at least cover the spread as a double-digit home favorite in this affair.
Texas is an uninspiring 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 conference games. And 0-4 ATS in their last four games following an SU win while West Virginia has gone 3-0-2 ATS in their last five home games, 4-0 ATS in their last four games following a bye week and 5-1-2 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record. I like the Longhorns to get the outright road win, but I’m going with the Mountaineers to cover the chalk in this Big 12 battle.
Pick: West Virginia +10.5
