Every year, the Power 5 conferences begin with the firm favorites very much in place. Teams like Alabama, Clemson, Oklahoma, Georgia, and Ohio State have all proven that they have the ability to reload when they lose players to the NFL, making them the teams that everyone else needs to chase in order to break up the status quo. All of the teams mentioned there are off to perfect starts as we head into Week 6 of the college football season. That puts added pressure on the teams looking to play catch-up, with one of those teams guaranteed to fall off the pace this coming weekend.
The Auburn Tigers are looking to challenge the Crimson Tide in the SEC West, while the Florida Gators have their sights on the Georgia Bulldogs in the East. Both teams are off to winning starts, but they also both know that a loss here will put them behind the 8-ball in their respective divisions. This is one of the better games in this time slot on Saturday, and it’s the Auburn Tigers who are favored by 3 ½ on the road. The point total for this one has been set at 48 ½.

Why bet on the Auburn Tigers?
The Auburn Tigers started the season ranked down in the #16 spot, but they have worked their way up to #7 courtesy of a couple of signature wins along the way. They got the ball rolling by delivering a brilliant 4th quarter comeback to down the Oregon Ducks in Week 1. Their second game against a ranked opponent came a couple of weeks ago when they beat Texas A&M 28-20 on the road, making it clear that they mean business this season.
The Tigers schedule gets a good deal more brutal, though, with Georgia and Alabama both on the horizon. The bad news is that they are just 1-5 SU in their last 6 road games versus Florida, while bettors will enjoy the fact that Auburn has now covered the spread in 6 straight games.

Why bet on the Florida Gators?
The Tigers made a switch at the QB position in Week 1 in what was a coach’s decision. The Gators have also made a switch, but this one was by necessity rather than design, with Feleipe Franks going down with what looks to be a season-ending injury. Kyle Trask has looked comfortable in the starting role, but this will be his first serious test.
With no disrespect to Tennessee and Towson, Trask and the Gators will know that this game is a completely different kettle of fish. The Gators are on a run that has seen them win 9 straight games, including 5 n a row at home. They are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games in Week 6, but they are also just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games against conference foes.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction for Auburn vs Florida
It’s the battle of the back-ups on Saturday afternoon, and while both have played well, it is Bo Nix of Auburn who has had the tougher schedule to negotiate. I like the Tigers to go into Florida and win, covering the spread in the process.
