Notre Dame vs. Arizona StateWeek 6 NCAA football odds are posted here at Bankroll Sports, and we are already set to break down some of the best games on the college football betting lines for the week ahead. Join us as we take our best shot at the NCAA football Vegas odds in Week 6.

Big huge favorites are back again in Week 6, and the biggest favorite of the bunch is the Alabama Crimson Tide. The Tide have finally put together a rather complete game, as they took care of the Ole Miss Rebels last week without much of a fight. Now, for the first time all year, they should have a game where they open up one of these 70-3 cans on a poor unsuspecting foe. The unsuspecting foe this week is the Georgia State Panthers, who are clearly only here for the sake of getting a big, fat paycheck from the boys from Tuscaloosa and to get some experience as they figure out what life is like playing at the FBS level. It is clear that there is a real talent gap between these two teams, and there is little way that this game will be close. Want proof? This is one of the biggest college football point spreads in a game pitting a pair of FBS teams against each other, as Bama is expected to roll by 55.5.

Of course, it’s tough not to laugh when you think that a team that is -33.5 on the road is the third biggest favorite of the week, but that’s the case with the Louisville Cardinals against the Temple Owls in the City of Brotherly Love. The game that has supplanted this one is another conference game featuring another team on the road. The Oregon Ducks, who continue to just take out their lawn mower and trample everything in their way on their schedule, are giving 38 to the Colorado Buffaloes, who are clearly at the bottom of the Pac-12 and have no chance of competing in this game, even at Folsom Stadium with the high altitude. You could play this game on the moon and Oregon would put up 50 points.

That’s really the end of the garbage games though, and if there are only three games that are just complete and utter embarrassments with nearly 130 FBS teams to choose from, we consider it to be an accomplishment. There aren’t really any of those marquee games like we had last week when the LSU Tigers took on the Georgia Bulldogs, but there are good games littered throughout that are worth discussing.

NCAA Football BetDSITo kick off the week, there are a pair of teams that are going to be hoping to pull off some upsets to turn their seasons around. Neither the Iowa State Cyclones nor the Utah Utes are teams that are likely to be going to bowl games this year, but both could take a massive step towards that if they can beat teams that are perhaps amongst the most talented 25 in the country on Thursday night. The Cyclones are +9 at home against the Texas Longhorns, while the Utes are +4 at home against the UCLA Bruins. The Bruins know just how dangerous this game is, and QB Brett Hundley and the gang are going to be paying extra attention in practice. Rice-Eccles Stadium is no fun to play at, especially at night on national television.

On Friday, the Mountain West is going to be on display. The BYU Cougars, who have been a complete mixed bag this year, are +6.5 on the road going against a team that they are very familiar with. Of course, now, it’s the Utah State Aggiest that are in the Mountain West, while the Cougs are the independents. No less, this is a game that is going to be great. Both of these teams have already been beaten in the battle for the Beehive Cup, so that isn’t going to make a difference, but this one could have a big difference when it comes to recruiting. The host Aggies are -6.5 in what amounts to be a huge game for them, as it isn’t all that often that they are really expected to beat BYU. The San Diego State Aztecs play their first Mountain West game of the year on Friday night as well, as they are hosting the Nevada Wolf Pack. The Wolf Pack, in spite of their 2-0 start to the season in conference play, are +4.5 in this one.

There are a lot of middling games in conference play that could be very intriguing. The Iowa Hawkeyes haven’t played much in the way of big foes yet this year, but they are bringing one to Kinnick Stadium on Saturday. Iowa is -2 against the Michigan State Spartans, and the loser of this one is going to be in a lot of trouble when it comes to challenging for the Legends Division title. The Hawkeyes are already 4-1, but they still have a lot of work to do just to ensure that they will go bowling. The Illinois Fighting Illini and the Nebraska Cornhuskers are both 3-1 teams that have yet to open up their conference slates yet. They’ll do battle with the Children of the Corn giving 10.5 on the opening Week 6 college football lines.

SEC East teams are going to be in for some interesting battles this week as well. The Georgia Bulldogs, Florida Gators, and South Carolina Gamecocks are all double digit favorites in games against fellow SEC rivals. However, the Gamecocks (+21 vs. Kentucky) are playing in their first game without QB Connor Shaw, the Gators (-10.5 vs. Arkansas) are playing in their second game without QB Jeff Driskel, and the Bulldogs (-11 @ Tennessee) have to go on the road into a hostile environment against a team that is hungry for a victory the week after winning another huge game against a Top 10 team in the land. All of these games are dangerous to say the least. Even the team that lost that big game Between the Hedges last week, the LSU Tigers are only -9.5 at the Mississippi State Bulldogs in Starkville.

That brings us to the ACC, where issues are always interesting. The Florida State Seminoles are -14.5 at home against the Maryland Terrapins in one of the very few Top 25 matchups of the weekend, while the Clemson Tigers have another one of these “Clemson” games against the Syracuse Orange and are -11. Both of these teams have looked vulnerable over the course of the last few weeks, and the ACC can’t afford either to lose in the next two weeks with their matchup coming against each other in Death Valley on October 19th in what would be the biggest ACC game of the year. The North Carolina Tar Heels are also +7 in what would be an elimination game to them in all likelihood against the Virginia Tech Hokies, while the Miami Hurricanes, in their first conference game of the year, are currently off the board against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in what will prove to be a critical clash.

SportsBetting.ag FootballThere are three clashes though, that are clearly very important in primetime, and they are going to shape the course of the rest of the college football betting season. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish know that they are going to have to probably run the table if they are going to end up making it into one of the BCS bowl games for a second straight season. They have the Arizona State Sun Devils in Arlington on Saturday night in the Shamrock Classic in the Lone Star State, and they are relatively big six-point pups. ASU wouldn’t be a Top 25 team in the land had the Wisconsin Badgers not blown it a few weeks ago, but there is no doubt that this is a team with some character that can fight it out against some of the best in the biz. This -6 spread is warranted.

Just a half hour later, the Northwestern Wildcats will be playing in what amounts to be perhaps the biggest game in the history of Ryan Field. The Cats are taking on the #4 Ohio State Buckeyes with a chance to seize control of the path to the Rose Bowl, and perhaps to the BCS National Championship as well. It’s still a pipe dream for Northwestern, but the spot is a good one. The Bucks are coming off of the emotional win over Wisconsin last week, and they have to go on the road in primetime to a hostile environment in this one. Be very careful, Ohio State! There’s a reason that you’re only a five-point favorite.

But perhaps the game of the night is the nightcap between the Stanford Cardinal and the Washington Huskies. Stanford has had its challenges thus far this year, and it is passing them with ease at this point. The defense is nasty for Head Coach David Shaw and the gang, and the unit is only going to get better as the season wears on. U-Dub is still undefeated and is inching up the polls with each and every week. Head Coach Steve Sarkisian knows if there is a way to get back into the Pac-12 title race, this is the way to do it. The Huskies pulled off the upset 17-13 last year in Seattle, but this would be a much different situation playing on the Farm and winning. The Cardinal are laying a touchdown for the third time in the last four years in this series, and they are hoping that this is the game that turns this series back into a blowout.

The highest ‘total’ of the week is 76, and that can be seen in a pair of games. The Oregon Ducks are expected to drop a huge number on the Colorado Buffaloes, and that’s why that number is so high, and the same could be said for the Baylor Bears, who are taking on the West Virginia Mountaineers. WVU finally flashed some offense last week in the upset of the Oklahoma State Cowboys, but this is going to require a heck of a lot more. The oddsmakers are showing some confidence that it is going to happen, which is more than we can say for this team from the rest of the year.

On the flip side of things, there are plenty of games that are in the 40s, including a record for the year of three games with numbers of 45 or lower. Some of these games could be embarrassing offensively, but none are like the clash between the Michigan State Spartans and the Iowa Hawkeyes. That number of 42 is pathetically low, but we continue to expect this out of the Big Ten in the future, especially in these MSU games.
