Week 6 of the college football season featured one of the craziest Saturdays we’ve ever seen.
We had LSU getting beaten at Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas went to quadruple overtime, and Alabama and Ole Miss combined for 111 points – prompting Rebels head coach Lane Kiffin to say, “I thought they played defense in the SEC.”
So what’s in store for week 7, and more importantly, where should you put your money? Take a look at our best bets.
Louisville at Notre Dame (-14)
Louisville has a great offense led by Malik Cunningham, so it should score some points in this one. But the Cardinals also turn the ball over too much and play suspect defense.
Notre Dame struggled out of the gate with a lackluster win over Duke, but the Irish have been more than impressive ever since and are coming off a 16-point win over Florida State.
This will be a high-scoring affair for both teams, with Notre Dame winning by at least 17 points.
LSU (+11) at Florida
No question the defending national champions were gutted this offseason, losing 37 players from last year’s team. But is LSU really a below .500 team?
Their current 1-2 record says yes, and they will be 1-3 after this weekend’s game at Florida. But the Gators have some real problems on defense, and the Tigers will keep this close.
Quarterback Kyle Trask will lead Florida to victory, but LSU covers the double-digit spread.
Clemson at Georgia Tech (+26.5)
Clemson looks every bit the No. 1 team in the country so far, but other than a game against The Citadel, the Tigers haven’t covered a spread as big as this one. Georgia Tech is better than both Wake Forest and Virginia, and both of those teams kept it to within three touchdowns. That will happen again to Clemson this week.
The Tigers win easily but fail to cover the spread.
Coastal Carolina (+7) at Louisiana
The Ragin’ Cajuns were all the rage after beating Iowa State to start the year, and deservedly so. But two lackluster wins over Georgia State and Georgia Southern (by a combined five points) has taken the bloom off the rose.
Coastal Carolina has looked dominant since it also upset a Big 12 team to open the season and does not deserve to be touchdown underdogs. Take the Chanticleers and the points.
Georgia at Alabama (-5)
The game of the week is No. 3 Georgia at No. 2 Alabama. Both teams have been dominating opponents, with Georgia winning by an average of 23 points and Alabama winning by 21.
Expect this to be a close game throughout, but the superior Tide offense will pull away in the fourth quarter and win by at least a touchdown. Alabama covers the modest five-point spread at home.
