With college football action starting on Thursday night, we’ve found a few last-minute games for you to bet on. After looking over the slate of games, we’ve done something that we don’t normally do. We’ll admit, we’re going out on a limb here by picking three road favorites to cover, but we feel confident in our selections. We’ll preview three games, and give you our picks in each of them.
Week 6 of the College Football Season 2022
Tennessee Volunteers (-3.5) @ LSU TigersA trip to Death Valley is never easy. LSU has been getting better each week, and Brian Kelly’s squad would love nothing more than to play spoiler. Josh Heupel has the Tennesse Volunteers headed in the right direction, and their offense is hard to stop. Hendon Hooker is one of the best quarterbacks in the country, and he very rarely turns the ball over.
While this one will be close throughout, we see the Volunteers pulling away late. Many see this as a trap game for Tennessee, as experts think they’ll be overlooking LSU and looking forward to hosting Alabama next Saturday. We don’t think that this will be the case. The Vols will survive a scare in Death Valley, and they’ll win this one by a touchdown.
Utah Utes (-3.5) @ UCLA Bruins
After defeating Washington last weekend, the UCLA Bruins are looking to knock off another of the top teams in the Pac-12. Chip Kelly’s tenure as head coach has been criticized by many, but now may be the time that he finally brings the Bruins back into the conference championship mix. Even though this game is at the Rose Bowl, there hasn’t been much fanfare surrounding the Bruins. As a matter of fact, there have hardly been any fans at their home games this season. We could see an influx of Utes fans take over the Rose Bowl on Saturday.
Speaking of Utah, after losing at Florida in Week 1, the Utes have bounced back and have been beating teams soundly. While UCLA has an offense that scores an average of over 40 points per game, Utah’s defense is one of the best in the country, giving up just over 14 points per game. We’ll see which unit wins out.
We like Utah to win this one. Even though it’s a road game, it could be more like a home game for Utah. The Utes win by a touchdown, and continue on their journey towards a Pac-12 title.
