Why Bet The Iowa State Cyclones To Beat The Sooners

Iowa State needs to return to rushing the ball to win. In the first four weeks sophomore RB David Montgomery rushed 321 yards and four TDs. His yards per carry average? A stellar 5.7! But Iowa State unsuccessfully tried to open things up with its passing game in the first half last week, which forced the Cylcones to abandon the running game after going down by14. Montgomery finished with 34 yards on nine carries, while Park threw the ball 48 times. Iowa State lost 17-7.

Oklahoma’s defense is under the microscope this week. They give up an average of 134.3 rushing yards per game. The OU defense allowed the Baylor Bears to rack up 41 points and 523 total yards last week.

Why Bet The Oklahoma Sooners To Beat The Cyclones

The Sooners may have struggled against Baylor last week, but they again found a way to win. It has been 371 days since their last loss and 714 days since they last lost a conference game. Their 17 consecutive Big 12 wins matches the longest in school history. They have also won 13 consecutive true road games, the nation’s longest active streak. Can ISU put a stop to Sooner streak?

Oklahoma’s offense has one speed. Fast and dominant. The Sooners average 48.0 points per game this season; only Oklahoma State, Louisville, and SMU average higher. Heisman Trophy candidate QB Baker Mayfield is jet fuel this offense runs on. He has thrown for 1329 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2017. He’s the only Big12 starting QB who has thrown zero picks.

If You Still Can’t Decide Who To Bet On:

  • Cyclones are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a straight up loss.
  • Cyclones are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games in October.
  • Sooners are 12-5 ATS in their last 17 conference games.
  • Sooners are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 home games.

Iowa State Vs. Oklahoma Week 6 Betting Analysis:

Take Oklahoma to win and cover. A Sooner loss to an unranked team will all but kill their playoff dreams. Plaus Oklahoma is 5-1 ATS in its last six games when playing at home against Iowa State.

Notre Dame vs North Carolina Spread & ATS Pick

Notre Dame vs North Carolina Spread & ATS Pick

North Carolina Looks to Nab Huge Upset at Home Against Visiting No. 22 Notre Dame

The North Carolina Tar Heels will look to get the huge upset at home when they host the visiting 22nd-ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Kenan Memorial Stadium on Saturday. With these two teams heading in polar opposite directions, let’s find out if the Irish can cover the week 6 college football betting spread as 13-point road favorites.

Notre Dame vs North Carolina College Football Week 6 Spread & ATS Pick

Notre Dame Fighting Irish (4-1) at North Carolina Tar Heels (1-4)
When: Saturday, October 7, 2017 at 3:30 PM ET
Where: Kenan Stadium
TV: ABC
Stream: Watch ESPN
Spread: Notre Dame -13
Total: 59.5

Why Bet the Notre Dame Fighting Irish Spread at -13

Notre Dame overpowered overmatched Miami-Ohio the last time out, winning 52-17 last weekend as quarterback Brandon Wimbush completed 7-of-18 passes for 119 yards with three touchdowns while running back Josh Adams ran eight times for 159 yards and two scores. This season, Wimbush is completing just 52.3 percent of his passes for 783 yards with six touchdowns and two picks while Adams has rushed for a team-high 658 yards and four scores on 73 carries. Defensively, Notre Dame is limiting the opposition to just 18.2 points per game to rank 23rd nationally in points allowed.

Why Bet the North Carolina Tar heels Spread at +13

North Carolina has lost two straight and comes into this contest off a humbling 33-7 blowout loss at Georgia Tech as quarterback Chazz Surratt was limited to 18 for 30 passing for 141 yards with no touchdowns and one interception while backup Brandon Harris threw a pick in his only pass attempt. More importantly, the Tar Heels gave up a jaw-dropping 403 rushing yards to Georgia Tech and their powerful triple-option rushing attack while losing the time of possession battle by over 17 minutes. For the season Surratt is completing 63.3 percent of his passes for 988 yards with five touchdown and two interceptions. Defensively, North Carolina has been abysmal in allowing a whopping 33.0 points per game to rank 105th nationally.

Notre Dame vs North Carolina ATS Pick

Notre Dame is the super easy pick in this Week 6 matchup seeing as how North Carolina has been mostly inept on the defensive side of the ball and Notre Dame has been increasingly productive in scoring at least 49 points in two of their last three games.

While North Carolina has gone 5-1 ATS in their last six non-conference games, the Tar Heels are also an uninspiring 1-4 ATS in their last five home games while Notre Dame has gone 4-1 ATS in their last five non-conference games and 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games in the month of October. The nearly two-touchdown spread may look a bit daunting, but I like the Irish to cover it!

Pick: Notre Dame -13

Memphis Tigers Vs UConn Huskies College Football Week 6 Odds & Pick

Memphis Vs UConn Odds & Pick

Memphis Looks to Cover College Football Odds as 2 TD Road Favorite at Reeling UConn

The Memphis Tigers will look to rebound from a loss last weekend when they hit the road to take on a UConn Huskies team that is struggling mightily as they get set for their Week 6 AAC conference matchup. Now, let’s find out if the Tigers can bounce back to win and cover the Week 6 college football betting odds two-touchdown road favorite against their conference rivals.

NCAAF Odds: Memphis -14
Total: 73.5

Why Bet the Memphis Tigers Odds at -14

Memphis had their three-game winning streak snapped in their humbling 40-13 blowout loss against Central Florida as quarterback Riley Ferguson was limited to 27 of 49 passing for 321 yards and one touchdown while tossing a costly three interceptions in the defeat. For the season, Ferguson is completing just 55.4 percent of his passes for 1,104 yards with nine touchdowns and five interceptions.

Defensively, Memphis has been almost as bad as UConn in giving up a stunning 36.2 points per game to rank 111th in points allowed nationally.

Why Bet the UConn Huskies Odds at +14

The Huskies have dropped three straight and come into their Week 6 matchup against Memphis off a humbling 49-28 blowout loss against SMU last weekend while never coming close to covering the spread as a 16.5-point road underdog. Quarterback Bryant Shirreffs was solid in completing an efficient 22 of 28 pass attempts for 408 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions but the Huskies were held to a jaw-dropping -8 rushing yards on 36 team carries. For the season, Shirreffs is completing a stellar 68.9 percent of his passes for 1,165 yards with eight touchdowns and two interceptions, but the UConn defense has been atrocious in allowing a whopping 37.0 points per game to rank a pitiful 117th in points allowed nationally.

Memphis Vs UConn Pick

I know Memphis is 3-1 while UConn is a polar opposite 1-3, but the Huskies have the far better quarterback in this matchup of pitiful defensive teams and that leads me to believe that UConn is the easy pick to at least cover the college football betting line at home in this Week 6 matchup.

The Tigers are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the Huskies are 7-19 ATS in their last 26 conference games and 14-39-1 ATS in their last 54 games overall.

I’m taking UConn and the nearly two touchdowns to cover the chalk everyone!

Pick: UConn +13.5
