Week 6 of the College Football Season is upon us, and we’re in the thick of conference action. We saw some huge matchups last weekend, and we’ll see some more on Saturday. The early lines have been released by the oddsmakers, and we’ve found some games that we think we’re confident in. Here are a couple of games that we think you can turn a few bucks into a lot of money if you’re willing to place a NCAAF odds.
College Football Betting Preview Week 6
Maryland Terrapins @ Ohio State Buckeyes (-19.5)
After losing to the Oregon Ducks in Week 2 of the season, the Buckeyes knew that their road to the College Football Playoffs had just gotten a lot tougher. And this past weekend, the road got even rougher, as the Ducks lost to the Stanford Cardinal.
Ohio State had little margin for error, but after Oregon’s loss, they have even less margin now. The Buckeyes crushed Rutgers 52-13 on Saturday. CJ Stroud, who was questionable entering the game, showed everyone that he’s ready to carry the Buckeyes, as he threw for over 300 yards with five touchdown passes.
Stroud does have an advantage that no one else has, as he quite possibly has the best group of wide receivers in the country. Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson continue to play well, and are very hard to stop. They’ll need to play big in the upcoming weeks.
The Maryland Terrapins were 4-0 heading into their matchup with the #5-ranked Iowa Hawkeyes last Friday night. College Park was ready for a huge game. Unfortunately, the home faithful were let down, as the Hawkeyes destroyed the Terps 51-14. Taulia Tagovailoa threw five interceptions in the blowout loss.
While the Terps will be looking to rebound from this huge loss, things aren’t going to be easy, as they travel to Columbus. Ohio State looks to be rounding into form, and they know that they can’t have any letdowns. We think we’re going to see another blowout loss for Maryland. The Buckeyes show everyone that they’re not done yet, and blow out the Maryland Terrapins by at least four touchdowns.
Michigan State Spartans (-4.5) @ Rutgers Scarlet Knights
While the Spartans were predicted to finish near the bottom of the Big 10 standings this season, Mel Tucker had other thoughts. In just the second year of his rebuild, Tucker has the Spartans sitting at 5-0 and ranked 11th in the country.
A huge reason for their 5-0 start is Heisman Trophy candidate Kenneth Walker III. He had 126 yards and three touchdowns in MSU’s victory over Western Kentucky last weekend. Until someone finds a way to stop Walker, it’ll be hard to beat Sparty.
Former NFL defensive coordinator, and now Rutger head coach Greg Schiano may have a magic formula to stop Walker. Rutgers will do everything in their power to stop the powerful Spartan rushing attack.
While we think this will be a very close game, as Michigan State is due for a clunker, we still think that the Spartans find a way to win, and will cover the 4.5-point spread. Michigan State wins this one 27-20 when they score a late touchdown.
