Posted by Eric Williams on October 6, 2016 in

If you’re looking to make the most out of your Week 6 college football betting selections, then you’re going to enjoy the fun-filled look at the hottest and coldest ATS teams in the country. With that said and Week 6 set to get underway in just over 48 hours, let’s get started.

Take a Closer Look at the College Football Week 6 Betting Guide


Colorado 5-0 ATS

The Buffaloes are making some real noise in the Pac-12 right now, having won four of five while posting a perfect 5-0 As mark along the way. Colorado is averaging an insane 43.2 points per game while limiting the opposition to jus 20.6 points per game defensively.

Western Michigan 5-0 ATS

You may not know it, but the Western Michigan Broncos are a perfect 5-0 ATS and have many calling for them to become nationally ranked despite their small-school status.

Miami 4-0 ATS

Former Georgia head coach Mark Richt has certainly made his mark in his first season at his beloved alumni. The Hurricanes are a perfect 4-0 SU and ATS heading into Saturday’s huge matchup against in-state rival Florida State. Miami is averaging a jaw-dropping 47 points per game while limiting the opposition to just 11 points per contest defensively.

Ohio State 4-0 ATS

Not only are the unbeaten Buckeyes looking like a very real national championship contender with a perfect 4-0 SU mark, but they’ve also put together a perfect ATS mark by averaging 57 points per game while limiting the opposition to just 9.2 points per contest defensively.

Houston 4-1 ATS

The good news for the undefeated Houston Cougars (5-0) is that they are now on the map as a legitimate national title contender. Houston is averaging a healthy 44,2 points per game while limiting the opposition to just 11.2 points per game defensively. The bad news for the Cougars’ gridiron program is that head coach Tom Herman is so hot that he’s going to have his pick of jobs. Do you hear that LSU and Texas?

Best of the Rest

Texas A&M 4-1 ATS

Not only are the unbeaten Aggies (5-0) averaging a stellar 39.2 points per game this season, but they’re also limiting their opponents to just 15.4 points per game defensively.

South Florida 4-1 ATS

The Bulls are allowing an uninspiring 26.4 points per game defensively, but the high- scoring Bulls are also putting up a stellar 45.8 points per game offensively.

Wisconsin 4-1 ATS

The Badgers (4-1 SU) don’t have the most explosive offense (26.0 ppg) but they’re as good as it gets defensively (12.2 ppg).

Auburn 4-1 ATS

Sure, the Tigers have two losses (3-2) but they’re pretty damned good on both sides of the ball in averaging 31.2 points per game while allowing just 16.4 points per contest defensively.

Not (These teams have all failed to cover the college football betting line at least four times through five games.)

Oregon 0-4- 1 ATS

The Ducks (3-2 SU) have fallen on hard times this season and have failed to cover the spread in every single game heading into Week 6. Then again, when you’re giving up a whopping 36.2 points per game defensively, it’s kind of hard to cove the spread against anyone.

UConn 0-4- 1 ATS

The Huskies have a losing SU record (2-3), mostly because they’re giving up more points per game (26.4 ppg) than they’re averaging (19.8 ppg).

Arizona 1-4 ATS

The Wildcats also have three losses after five games (2-3) mostly because they’re minus 0.2 points in the scoring differential department.


At 3-2, the Bruins have a winning SU mark, but UCLA is a modest plus 5.8 points in the scoring department.


TCU has an impressive 4-1 SU mark after five weeks, but the Horned Frogs are struggling to cover the spread mostly because they’re giving up a whopping 31.4 points per game defensively.

Florida 1-4 ATS

The Gators (4-1) have an elite defense that limits the opposition to just 11.6 points per game and they still have slim playoff hopes. Unfortunately, it hasn’t helped the Gators cover the spread very often this season.

Pittsburgh 1-4 ATS

The Panthers (3-2 SU) are giving up a whopping 31.0 points per game defensively.


How many ways has LSU underachieved this season? The Tigers’ pedestrian offense (25.2 ppg) got former head coach Les Miles fired after four games.

Iowa 1-4 ATS

The Hawkeyes are averaging a healthy 30.6 points per game but are struggling to cover the spread in a big way this season.

Cincinnati 1-4 ATS

The Bearcats (3-2) are giving up more points (26.4 ppg) than they are averaging (25.8 ppg).
