Week 6 College Football Odds: Tide is again a big road favorite

New, 15 comments

Alabama is a huge double-digit favorite.

Las Vegas

Below are this week’s point spreads for Week 6. Once again, the Tide is a huge favorite, -25.5 on the road against the Aggies. The oddsmakers don’t see a very competitive game from the Ags, who are playing with a much worse defense than last season and a freshman quarterback -- against the nation’s No. 4 offense and No. 1 defense. Alabama has covered the last four straight against A&M. The largest spread has been 13 points, meanwhile the Tide have won by 3, 59, 18 and 18 points. Tough game.

There are a couple of interesting ones in here though: I like Michigan’s defense to cover -12 at home against Sparty. Penn State has not played well on the road, but I suspect the Lions get a two-touchdown cover in Evanston. USC is at home and licking their wounds; this team needs style points and is going to cover 34 against the hapless Beavers, one of the worst teams you’ll see all year. Look for Boise to whack BYU on the road (-7). I like BC at home to at least garner a push at +17 against the Hokies. Memphis rebounds with a solid thrashing of UConn. And Maryland covers +30 in the Horseshoe.

SEC teams are in bold, with two teams on a bye -- Arkansas and Mississippi State. Bonus action is below the spreads.
