Nebraska and Ohio State are both coming off big wins in their Big Ten openers. The Cornhuskers scored 20 straight points to come from behind to beat Wisconsin last Saturday night. Ohio State won Urban Meyer’s Big Ten debut in East Lansing in a defensive struggle 17-16. The Horseshoe will be rocking this Saturday night when these two meet in a battle of two of the Big Ten’s best.
Bo Pelini actually played football for Ohio State, so this game might mean a little more to him than an average game. Pelini’s Cornhuskers had a disappointing early season loss to UCLA,
It has been quite some time since the Miami Hurricanes and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish have met regularly. Now that they are going to be sharing the ACC banner down the road, that might not be the case for long, and the first installment of this newly recreated rivalry will take place at Soldier Field on Saturday night on the college football Week 6 odds.
Georgia has steamrolled its way to a 5-0 straight-up (2-3 against the spread) start behind an offense that is ranked eighth in the nation in scoring with an average of 48.2 points a game. The Bulldogs are a perfect 3-0 SU in conference play with dominating victories over Missouri, Vanderbilt, and Tennessee in which they outscored their opponents by a combined 140-67. The total has gone OVER in all five games.
LSU is a perfect 5-0 straight-up (2-3 against the spread) on the year, but fell another spot in the latest AP poll after an uninspired 38-22 victory over a heavily outmatched Towson team that came into this game as 43-point underdogs on the road. The Tigers also failed to cover the week before as 18-point favorites on the road against Auburn in a tight 12-10 victory.
The Big Ten schedule continues for the Northwestern Wildcats, as they hope to keep their perfect season alive when they take on the Penn State Nittany Lions in college football betting action this Saturday.
The Wildcats are one of the two teams that are still unblemished in the Big Ten, and with a win on Saturday, they might be the only team left in the conference that still has a ranking in the Top 25 as well.
The college football consensus report for the week covers a long list of college football games and usually it is the lower tiered games that should get a second look. But in Week 6 of the college football season it is a high profile game that is getting the looks. It is not the big SEC games featuring LSU vs Florida and Georgia vs South Carolina, but a game that features the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
The Miami Hurricanes are off an incredible game filled with emotion.
When you bet on NCAA Football, you should know all about the numbers. Numbers for stats, numbers for trends, numbers for betting lines, numbers for ‘totals’ – You should know it all. Here at Bang the Book, we are set to talk about the NCAA football betting lines for Week 6. Here are the most important numbers that you need to remember for the week!
0: The number of games that the Mississippi State Bulldogs have lost against teams that didn’t ultimately finish the season with at least eight wins since Head Coach Dan Mullen took over. That’s right. The Bulldogs, who have a whopping 17 losses since the start of the 2009 season, have never lost to a team that didn’t finish with at least eight wins that year.
The BYU Cougars and the Utah State Aggies fight it out on Friday night in the second game of a college football betting doubleheader on ESPN, as these two clash for Beehive State supremacy.
You have to go back to 1974 to find the last time that the Aggies were able to beat both the Cougars and the Utah Utes in the same season. There has been a heck of a lot of frustration in the interim, but now is the opportunity for Utah State to shine.
The Big East will be on display on Friday night at the Carrier Dome, where the NCAA football odds will be contested between the Syracuse Orange and the Pittsburgh Panthers.
Have the Panthers righted the ship? That’s the biggest question right now in Steeltown, and it is certainly one that is up for debate. Pittsburgh has won its last two games, but there is a real question as to whether those wins against Gardner Webb and Virginia Tech were really good enough to get this team going for the rest of the campaign.
Week 6 of the college football betting season starts on Thursday night, and the showcase game of a big time three-pack pits the Southern Cal Trojans against the Utah Utes at Rice Eccles Stadium.
With names like QB Matt Barkley, RB Silas Redd, RB Curtis McNeal, WR Marqise Lee, and WR Robert Woods, the Trojans really shouldn’t be struggling offensively at all.
