Week Six College Football Gambling Picks
Let's keep the train rolling.
How about this past week. Yeah, no big deal, kind of killed it. And guess what, I’m about to kill it again with not one, not two, not three, but FOUR winning picks for you folks and loyal readers.
First off, let’s get to the lock of the week with a game I bet you didn’t expect. I am in love with UConn -3.5 on the road against the UMass Minutemen. Two squads that do not have a win under their belt, I hope one of them wins, hoping.
Eleven losses between the two teams, but one of them is clearly better than the other. And that is the UConn Huskies.
The Huskies have progressively gotten better as the seasons gone on. They’ve lost their last two contests by a total of four points. The offense is getting better and quarterback play from Tyler Phommachanh and Steven Krajewski will lead UConn to win this game and cover the 3.5 point spread.
While both teams are winless, UMass is terrible. Like on a whole other level of bad.
The Minutemen got walloped the past two weeks by Coastal Carolina and Toledo with a combine score of 98-10. Nothing seems to be working for them, that is why the Huskies are my lock of the week.
UConn -3.5 at UMass this Saturday.
The next game I love is Penn State traveling to middle America to play the Iowa Hawkeyes. Give me Penn State +1.5 at Iowa.
This is a battle of two top five teams, Iowa is ranked third and Penn State is ranked fourth so this game could decide a playoff spot.
Essentially, the line has nothing to do with this game, it’s a pick em and I love the Nittany Lions heading into Kinnick Stadium and beating the Iowa Hawkeyes. Penn State has already beaten a tough opponent on the road in Wisconsin and had a good showing at home vs Auburn so a big game like this won’t faze James Franklins squad.
Iowa hasn’t really played anyone big besides a disappointing Iowa State team and an overhyped Maryland squad. Granted they won both games by double digits.
The key to who wins this game will come down to Penn States front seven against the Iowa rushing attack. Iowa has the nations best player on their offensive line in center Tyler Linderbaum so if they get going Penn State could be in trouble.
That is if Iowa can get the run game going. Penn States defense has been great. They’re 5-0 and haven’t given up more than twenty points in a game this year.
Expect this game to be low scoring with the Nittany Lions winning by over four points. Hammer Penn State +1.5 at Iowa.
Next up on the docket is an over under game. I’ve got Arkansas at Ole Miss over 65.5 points this weekend. Two high powered SEC squads that don’t have awesome defenses, but have explosive offenses.
The Lane Kiffin led Rebels have scored over forty in three games this year and have a combined 179 points on the year. For the Razorbacks, they’ve dropped 105 points.
The key factor in this game, the man that can turn this game into a points party is Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral. He’s tallied 1,210 yards with 10 touchdowns and zero interceptions over four games while only being sacked 8 times.
I really don’t give a shit who wins, I just need both teams to air it out and have a Big 12 esque shootout, and I am extreme confident that this will happen.
Bang on the over, Arkansas at Ole Miss over 65.5.
Now last, but certainly not least is an ACC dual in upstate New York. I like Wake Forest traveling to Syracuse, giving the Orange 6.5 points.
Wake Forest is the best team in the ACC this season by a small margin, but they’re currently the top dogs.
In the Demon Deacons first five games this season, they haven’t scored less than 35 points in a game. They have combined for 192 points in games against Norfolk State, Florida State, Virginia, Old Dominion, and Louisville.
Former QB1 star Sam Hartman has led the Deacons to where they’re at this season. He’s passed for 1,285 yards with 11 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. On the other side of the ball, Wake has been stellar. Nothing crazy, they just do their job.
As for Syracuse, they’re mediocre at best this year. They lost to a dismal Florida State team and have one notable win over Liberty, the other coming against D1-AA UAlbany. Doesn’t seem like there’s much of a game here.
Put your mortgage on it, Wake Forest -6.5 at Syracuse.
