Week 5 of the college football season has come and gone, and it’s time to move on to Week 6. With everyone playing conference games now, each game is very important. Last week we saw some of the top programs in the country suffer some huge losses. We’ll have to see if those teams can rebound, or if they’ll continue to fall. In looking over this week’s slate of games, we’ve found a couple of games that have caught our betting interest. We’re going to give you our College Football Betting predictions on those two games, and we’ll give you our “sure winners” of Week 6. Good Luck!
Sure Winners For Week 6 of the 2022 Season | College Football Betting Picks
South Florida Bulls @ Cincinnati Bearcats (-27)
So, when looking at this game, all signs point towards the Cincinnati Bearcats. Cincinnati is 4-1, while South Florida is 1-4. South Florida has lost three straight games, while Cincinnati has won four straight. South Florida hasn’t won a road game since 2019, while the Bearcats haven’t lost a home game since 2017. The obvious choice here is to take the Cincinnati Bearcats, right?
Well, we’re going to go out on a limb, and make South Florida one of our sure winners of the week. While their defense is fairly suspect, they do run the ball well. They average just over 175 yards on the ground per game. Cincinnati is obviously the better team, and they’re going to win this game, but not by 27 points. South Florida hasn’t been blown out of games, and they’ve been a competitive team. We think the Bearcats win this one by 24, and South Florida covers the spread.
Oregon Ducks @ Arizona Wildcats (+10.5)
The oddsmakers seem to think that the Oregon Ducks are in for a tough test when they head to Tempe next weekend. Judd Fisch has done a great job of rebuilding the Arizona program, and in his second season, the Wildcats come into this one with a 3-2 record. Arizona is coming off of a 43-20 win over Colorado on Saturday. Now, remember, they beat Colorado. The Buffaloes are one of the worst Power 5 teams in the country, and they just fired their head coach on Sunday, so don’t look too far into this one.
As for the Oregon Ducks, after getting blasted by the Georgia Bulldogs by a score of 49-3 in Week 1 of the season, they have gone on to win four straight. Their four wins have been impressive, as they’ve beaten some quality opponents. With Bo Nix leading the way, the Ducks’ offense has been very good.
Both teams’ defenses have had problems stopping teams, but we heavily favor Oregon’s offense over Arizona’s. There will be a lot of points scored, so the over would probably be a very good play. But in terms of picking with the spread, we are going to make the Oregon Ducks another sure winner for the week. The Ducks are just too strong for Arizona. The Wildcats are headed in the right direction, but they’re not quite there yet. Oregon wins by 14.
