Welcome back to college football picks for Week 6! We had our first losing week last week. Trying to go off the radar can go either way, and it didn’t go well for us! 1-2 drops us to 9-5-1 on the year, let’s go hunting for some wins this week and get back on track!
Auburn @ Florida
Line: Auburn -2.5 O/U 48.5
I’ve been talking about this stretch of games for Florida since the schedule dropped. The Gators face Auburn here, followed by LSU and South Carolina on the road, and the brutal stretch ends against Georgia. This is going to be a classic SEC defensive matchup. I have Auburn as my #1 team right now and I think their defense will hold the hit and miss Gator offense in check. This line seems fishy to me, but Bo Nix makes just enough plays to get the big road win and solidify Auburn’s playoff chances.
Pick: Auburn -2.5 .5u
Bowling Green @ Notre Dame
Line: Notre Dame -46.5 O/U 61.5
With USC and Michigan on deck, I think the Irish want to get their offense tuned up. What better way then the Bowling Green defense to get better against? The Falcons have given up 52 to Kansas St and 62 to Kent St! Notre Dame will drop 50 and the Falcons score some in garbage time to push this one home.
Pick: Over 61.5 .5u
Georgia @ Tennessee
Line: Georgia -24.5 O/U 51.5
Tennessee is just awful! The once proud Volunteer program just can’t find their footing. They got hammered by Florida 38-3 and the Dawgs are a better squad. The Dawgs offensive line dominates up front and the defense feasts on an offense that doesn’t even know who is going to be playing QB come Saturday. The Dawgs are on a playoff mission and no way does Tennessee derail that.
Pick: Georgia -24.5 1u
Boise St. @ UNLV
Line: Boise St -22 O/U 57
The Broncos shocked me last week by dispatching a game Air Force squad. Now, they get a very beat up and thin UNLV squad. They gave up 374 yards on the ground last week; Robert Mahone and that offensive line should be licking their chops to get after that defensive line. Hank Bachmeier and a talented group of receivers should be too much for the Rebels to handle.
Pick: Boise St. -22.5 2u
