With Week 6 of the College Football season here, we have three of the best bets you can make this weekend.
Let’s dive in.
At home, Rutgers is three-point home underdogs against a Nebraska Cornhuskers team that, against really anyone else, has no business being a favored team.
The Cornhuskers have had a rough go of it this year, beginning the season by firing head coach Scott Frost.
The bright spot on their team is quarterback Casey Thompson who’s played good football, but their defense has been so abysmal in all facets of the game that we give the edge to the Scarlet Knights’ run game.
Under head coach Greg Schiano, Rutgers is actually quite OK on defense, ranking 18th in passing yards per game.
Nebraska laying points is a big no-no right now.
There’s still some question as to whether or not Bryce Young will be under center for the Crimson Tide, but either way, they should handle A&M with ease.
Texas A&M is dealing with some quarterback issues as Max Johnson is dealing with an injury to his hand. They’re also dealing with injuries to starting cornerback Jaylon Jones and offensive lineman Jordan Spasojevic-Moko.
Alabama has had a couple of close calls this season and even lost the A&M last season. Also, A&M allows less than 190 passing yards per game.
With Young hurting, they could and should rely on the run game here. That alone should propel them while the A&M offense struggles.
USC gave us a bit of a scare a few weeks back against Oregon State, winning just 17-14, but they rebounded last week, easily beating Arizona State, 42-25.
This week, they get Washington State at home, who’s averaged nearly 36 points per game.
However, Washington State cannot defend the pass, ranking 116th in the country in passing yards per game while giving up over 11 yards per completion.
USC quarterback Caleb Williams and wide receiver Jordan Addison should be able to rebound here.
Laying 13, we’d feel more comfortable if this number were north of two touchdowns. Still, at 13, this is a number that USC should be able to cover, even if they’re going up against another tremendous passing offense in Washington State—they pass for nearly 290 yards per game.
