Top 25 College Football Analysis and Betting Opportunities for Week 6 of the 2022 Season
8 Tennessee Volunteers vs 25 LSU Tigers (Saturday)
The eighth-ranked Tennessee Volunteers and the 25th-ranked LSU Tigers are very similar programs so far as the Vols are 4-0 (1-0) while the Tigers are 4-1 (2-0) heading into this matchup. However, this will be the toughest game on the schedule thus far for LSU, while this is the third time that Tennessee has faced a ranked opponent this season. Senior quarterback Hendon Hooker has a 90 QBR, which is fifth in the nation for Tennessee, while junior quarterback Jayden Daniels has a 79.6 QBR, which ranks 20th. These teams are similar, but Tennessee is just a bit better. The road team is 6-0-2 against the spread in their last eight games against one another. All in all, go with the Tennessee Volunteers being favored on the road by less than a field goal.
11 Utah Utes vs 18 UCLA Bruins (Saturday)
The 11th-ranked Utah Utes will be heading to the Rose Bowl to take on the 18th-ranked UCLA Bruins in a Pac-12 Conference matchup. UCLA has been proving they are a serious threat, with Chip Kelly calling the shots. Both offenses have been dominant, while the defense has been shutting the door on giving up points. Utah is very dependent on the running game behind junior running back Tavion Thomas as he is averaging 4.4 yards per carry, but UCLA is sixth in the entire country, allowing just 80.4 rushing yards per game. The Bruins are being considered to be a four-point home underdog in this matchup, and go with them getting points to cover the spread against an extremely talented Utes program.
Army Black Knights vs 15 Wake Forest Demon Deacons (Saturday)
The Army Black Knights are struggling this season with a 1-3 record and are taking on the 15th-ranked Wake Forest Demon Deacons, who are 4-1 themselves. Both offenses have been doing well, and obviously; the Black Knights are going to run the football as they lead the nation with 369.8 rushing yards per game. Junior quarterback Sam Hartman has been doing extremely well for the Demon Deacons as he has an 8:0 touchdown-to-interception ratio in his last two games, but he is not going to get the football as often as he typically does with a run-based attack on the opposite sidelines keeping the clock going and less total plays throughout the game. The spread is currently being listed as Wake Forest being favored by 16.5 points at home, but that feels like too much as I smell upset brewing here. Give me Army with the points, but do not be completely shocked if they win outright.
