Ten Betting Tips: College Football Betting Bits To Watch For Week 6

After another great week of the college football betting season, we are back for Week 6, as we look at the top teams, players, and trends of note for the this week on NCAA football schedule.

There is a new clear cut favorite on the odds to win the Heisman Trophy this year, and that man is QB Geno Smith for the West Virginia Mountaineers. Smith threw for a whopping 656 yards and eight scores in last week’s win over the Baylor Bears. Now, he has his biggest challenge of the year to date, and maybe his biggest challenge period.

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.

Ten Betting Tips: College Football Betting Bits To Watch For Week 5

After another great week of the college football betting season, we are back for Week 5, as we look at the top teams, players, and trends of note for the this week on NCAA football schedule.

There are certainly a bunch of teams that are on upset alert this week, but none might be in more trouble this week than the Florida State Seminoles. Not only are the Noles coming off of their biggest win in years over the Clemson Tigers, but they are also playing against a South Florida Bulls outlet that is hungry for a victory and has clearly been looking ahead to this game for the last several weeks.

Arizona @ Oregon College Football Pick

Two of the top teams in the Pac-12 this year meet in college football betting action on Saturday night at Autzen Stadium, where the Oregon Ducks take on the Arizona Wildcats.

Arizona hasn’t exactly come out of nowhere this year, but it is really a surprise that the team is 3-0 this year. Of course, the Wildcats have only won one game that they were really supposed to lose, that being the game against the Oklahoma State Cowboys, and aside from that, there hasn’t been all that much to talk about.

Vanderbilt @ Georgia College Football Pick

Sanford Stadium will be the site of a Week 4 college football betting showdown between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Vanderbilt Commodores, which will be shown on the Deuce.

The Dores have just one win so far this year, and one look further down their schedule suggests that they are going to have a heck of a time just getting to a bowl game once again. A game like this would have to be won from time to time to even think about playing in the postseason, and it just might not happen that way.

LSU vs Auburn Pick

A pair of Tiger teams are going to be meeting up in a classic SEC West showdown that will surely have National Championship implications, as the Auburn Tigers host the LSU Tigers.

The Bayou Bengals are clearly the best of the Tigers in the SEC this year, and that should show on Saturday night at Jordan Hare Stadium. Yes, this is the first road game for QB Zach Mettenberger, but it isn’t the first road game for so many of these experienced defenders, who are clearly amongst the best in the nation.

Oregon State vs UCLA Pick

The Pac-12 is going to have a heck of a lot of publicity this week, and the first of the big time clashes on the gridiron on the NCAA football odds pits the Oregon State Beavers against the UCLA Bruins.

We really don’t know a whole heck of a lot about the Beavers yet this year. They have beaten the Wisconsin Badgers at home in a game in which the Reser Stadium faithful stormed the field, but all of a sudden, virtually everyone looks like they can beat the Badgers.

Free College Football Pick: Baylor @ Louisiana Monroe

One of the new sweethearts of the NCAA football betting world, the Louisiana Monroe Warhawks are going to be out for another scalp on Friday night on national television, when they take on the Baylor Bears in a rare home game against a major conference foe.

Just a few weeks ago, this looked like it would be a slam dunk game for the Bears. Now, we’re not all that sure that that’s the case. Remember that Baylor struggled last week against the Sam Houston State Bearkats, falling behind 20-10 at halftime before turning on the jets and coasting to a second half victory.
