Arizona State vs Colorado Pick

The Pac-12 will be on display on Thursday night in Boulder, where the Arizona State Sun Devils and the Colorado Buffaloes will match wits on the college football betting odds in this crucial tilt.

The Sun Devils are quietly a 4-1 team that is coming on strong. Their only loss was on the road to the Missouri Tigers, though that loss is definitely looking more and more suspect the more that we see ASU play.

Washington vs Oregon Pick

The Pac-12 will be showcased in the final NCAA football betting battle of the night on Saturday, when the Oregon Ducks play host to the Washington Huskies.

U-Dub is in the Top 25 in one of the two polls at this point, and it knows that a win, and it will be in the Top 20, and maybe even the Top 15 in both. Of course, this is a huge uphill battle playing at Autzen Stadium, especially knowing that a game hasn’t been won here in nine years.

Miami vs Notre Dame Pick

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.

Northwestern vs Penn State Pick

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.

Utah State vs BYU Pick

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.

Pittsburgh vs Syracuse Pick

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.

USC vs Utah Pick

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.

Oregon vs. Washington State Picks

The newly anointed No. 2 team in the country will engage in NCAA football betting action in the final kickoff of the night on Saturday, when the Oregon Ducks battle the Washington State Cougars.

The Ducks are flying all over the field, but it was their defense that made headlines last week when they shut out the Arizona Wildcats 49-0. It was one of the most impressive displays that any team has come up with this year, though both the Cats and the Ducks know that there should have been a heck of a lot more on the board in terms of points.

Wisconsin vs Nebraska Pick

Big Ten foes that very well could be playing in the conference title game this year will meet for the second time ever and the first in Lincoln on Saturday night, where the Nebraska Cornhuskers will take on the Wisconsin Badgers.

The truth of the matter is that the season starts right now for the Badgers. All that we learned in the first month of the year about Wisky is that it just isn’t all that great.
