As we enter Week 6 of the college football season, our focus has begun to turn to the national landscape of the sport — which teams are well-positioned for a College Football Playoff push, and which teams have already removed themselves from consideration. Collin Wilson said it best in his Top 5 Favorite Betting Spots for Week 6:
Can a top-25 Iowa State team sweep the Big 12 and still make the Playoff with a loss to Louisiana? Will Virginia Tech be even better after fully recovering from COVID-19 and the return of quarterback Hendon Hooker? Will an undefeated Group of Five team sweep into the spot if the Power Five conferences finish with two-loss champions?
Week 6 will help answer a few of those questions.
Collin is 100% spot on that Week 6 should deliver crucial answers for some of the country’s premier programs. This week might be the most compelling, if not somewhat top-loaded, betting card of the young college football season. And our staff has you covered with our best bets from six games this weekend.
