NCAA Football Week 6 Must Bet Games – 2018 Season

Saturday, October 6

LSU at Florida

The LSU Tigers went 9-4 a year ago and suffered a couple of head-scratching losses to Troy and Notre Dame in the Citrus Bowl while coming up short of reaching the double-digit win mark they had hoped for under head coach Ed Orgeron. Making matters worse is the fact that LSU will have a first-time starter under center following the graduation of two-year starter Danny Etling. Not only that, but the Tigers also will be breaking in a new tailback following the departure of All-SEC back Derrius Guice to the NFL.Florida went an awful 4-7 last year in a tumultuous campaign that saw them part ways with former head coach Jim McElwain amidst all sorts of controversy. No matter, the Gators are expecting big things moving forward under the widely respected talents of former Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen.Mullen will need to identify who his own starting quarterback will be in 2018 whether that’s former part-time starter Feleipe Franks or redshirt sophomore Kyle Trask. The good news is that the Gators have a trio or talented running backs in juniors Jordan Scarlett and Lamical Perine and sophomore Adarius Lemons.LSU beat Florida 17-16 in Florida a year ago as a 1.5-point road dog, but I’m thinking the Gators are going to be far more explosive under Mullen moving forward and that they’ll get their payback in this one.NCAA Football Week 6 Betting Pick: Florida 28 LSU 24

Florida State at Miami

Florida State will be looking to rebound in 2018 after their disappointing 7-6 season a year ago, but they’ll be heading in a new direction under first-year head coach Willie Ttaggart after former head coach Jimbo Fisher bolted for the job at Texas A&M. The good news for the Seminoles is that they’ll have gifted quarterback Deondre Francois back on the field after he missed almost the entire season after suffering a knee injury in their 2017 opener. Taggart also has the luxury of handing the ball to Cam Akers, who broke FSU’s freshman rushing record with 1,024 yards in 2017.Miami went 10-3 a year ago and won the ACC Coastal division crown while competing for a berth in the four-team CFP late in the season before suffering a trio of costly losses. The good news is that the U is back in good position to contend again with a ton of talent on both sides of the ball.Are the Miami Hurricanes a safe bet to win in NCAA Football Week 6?Head coach Mark Richt must now decide if 2017 starting quarterback Malik Rosier is going to start again in 2018 seeing as how he’s not the most accurate quarterback in the country. If Rosier doesn’t get the nod, Richt will go with one of three freshmen in N’Kosi Perry, Cade Weldon or Jarren Williams (true freshman). Right now, Perry is the likely choice. Miami is loaded at the skill positions and on defense but they need to replace two starting defensive tackles and starting cornerback Malek Young.Still, for this Week 6 home date, the canes are the pick to get past a Florida State team that no one really knows how good they’ll be right now and one that could need some time to learn Willie Taggart’s new schemes. Miami picked up a 24-20 road win a year ago and now, they’ll make it two straight!NCAA Football Week 6 Betting Pick: Miami 30 Florida State 23

Oklahoma at Texas

The Oklahoma Sooners went 12-2 last season and fell just short of reaching the national championship under first-year head coach Lincoln Riley. The bad news heading into 2018 is that the Sooners will need to replace an all-time great in quarterback Baker Mayfield, who just so went on to become the top pick in the NFL Draft. Not only that, but left tackle Orlando Brown and tight end Mark Andrews, both unanimous All-Americans, are also gone. Now, Riley will turn to either former Texas A&M starter Kyler Murray or former four-star recruit Austin Kendall to fill Baker’s shoes, but it’s going to be daunting to say the least.At Texas, the Longhorns head into Year 2 of the Tom Herman era after going 7-6 a year ago under the former Houston Cougars head coach. After foolishly playing some musical chairs with his quarterbacks last season, Herman is almost surely going with gifted dual-threat signal-caller Sam Ehlinger who played well when called upon last season. Herman will need to find out who his starting tailback will be and the Horns need to replace linebacker Malik Jefferson (the Big 12 Co-Defensive Player of the Year), defensive tackle Poona Ford (the Big 12 Defensive Lineman of the Year), safety DeShon Elliott (a Thorpe Award finalist) and cornerback Holton Hill, but Texas should be better in 2018 simply because they’re in their second year under the widely respected Herman who turned Houston into a big-time winner during his time there.Oklahoma has won two straight in the long and ballyhooed red River Showdown, including a 29-24 win last season, but I’m expecting Texas to get back in the win column in 2018 simply because Baker Mayfield is gone.NCAA Football Week 6 Betting Pick: Texas 31 Oklahoma 27
