2019 College Football Week 6 Over/Under Betting Picks

Written by on October 1, 2019

The teams that will eventually make it into the top 4 and the college football playoffs will be the ones who can survive the scare that they are sure to face this season. The Clemson Tigers had their first one last weekend, being just a late 2-point conversion away from potentially dropping their first game of the season in North Carolina.

The other big guns have all gone through the season unscathed and without any real bad moments, but that just means that those are still to come. College Football Week 6 is almost upon us, which means that it’s time to look ahead and start making some picks. Besides our O/U picks here, we will also have SU and ATS selections coming your way.

College Football Week 6 Over/Under Betting Picks

Oklahoma Sooners at Kansas Jayhawks (OVER 67)

The Sooners are one of those teams at the top who have made it look very easy through their opening 4 games of the season. QB Jalen Hurts, who transferred in from Alabama in the offseason, has fit in nicely in the Sooners offense, helping them get to an average of 55 PPG.

They are going to put some big number up on the board again this week, and while the Jayhawks have not been a huge offensive threat this season, you still expect them to chip in some points here and there, all of which should take this one OVER.

  • The total has gone OVER in 5 of Oklahoma’s last 6 games against an opponent in the Big 12 conference
  • The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Kansas’ last 5 games played in week 6

Maryland Terrapins at Rutgers Scarlet Knights (UNDER 54)

The 142 combined points that the Maryland Terrapins put on the board in the opening 2 weeks of the season now seems like a distant memory. They have dropped back to back games since then, managing just 17 points in those losses. Rutgers have been even worse and have been shutout twice already this season, including a 52-0 loss to Michigan last week.

While I like Maryland to get some of their swagger back in this one on their way to a win, this still looks like a game where the UNDER is a good bet.

  • The total has gone OVER in 7 of Maryland’s last 9 games played in October
  • The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Rutgers’ last 5 games played on a Saturday

Purdue Boilermakers at Penn State Nittany Lions (OVER 55 ½)

The question about whether Penn State are for real or not this season will likely not be answered until they get into the heart of their conference schedule. For now, though, they have impressed in 3 of their 4 wins, putting up some big points.

Purdue is one of the favorites for College Football Week 6.

That said, they did have one game that may have given pause to some of the folks looking to crown them already, with that one being a 17-10 win over the Pitt Panthers. While the under has hit in 8 of the last 11 meetings between these two, the Boilermakers have seen 4 of their last 5 go over, with the Nittany Lions also seeing the OVER hit in 4 of their last 5 games in October.

  • The total has gone UNDER in 10 of Purdue’s last 12 games on the road
  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of Penn State’s last 5 games played in October

Northwestern Wildcats at Nebraska Cornhuskers in College Football Week 6 (UNDER 50)

When the Cornhuskers get involved in conference play, the points tend to start piling up, with 11 of their last 14 games versus Big Ten opposition going over.

Before you check the over box on your betting slip for this one, though, there are some things to consider, with the biggest being that each of Northwestern’s last 5 road games have gone UNDER the point total. They have also seen 8 of their last 12 overall go that route, which is why I am more inclined to go UNDER.
