A Closer Look At The College Football Week 6 Expert Picks For Top Favorites

 

 

Clemson at Boston College

When: Friday, October 7, 2016
Where: Alumni Stadium
TV: ESPN
Live Stream: Watch ESPN
NCAAF Odds: Clemson -17

Analysis: While Boston College Eagles (17.2 ppg) has an elite defense, so does Clemson (16.0 ppg). However, the BC Eagles just don’t have enough offensive firepower to keep up with the explosive Tigers. Clemson (5-0 SU, 3-2 ATS) averages a stellar 35.2 points per game to rank 48th nationally while Boston College (2-2 SU, 2-2 ATS) averages a more modest 23.4 points per contest.

Not only that, but the Tigers have a huge edge in overall talent level and know this is a game they cannot afford to take lightly as they seek their second straight appearance in the national championship. Clemson has gone 6-2 ATS in its last eight games, but just 2-4 ATS I their last six games against BC while the Eagles have gone 3-5-1 ATS in its last nine home games and 2-5 SU in their last seven home games.

Clemson has won five straight in this ACC rivalry including last season’s hard-fought 34-17 home win and I think they’re start to hit their stride at just the right time after opening the season with a couple of underwhelming performances. The Tigers are the pick to win and narrowly cash in against a BC team that generally gives them a hard way to go!

My Pick: Clemson 35 Boston College 17

Arizona at Utah

When: Saturday, October 8, 2016
Where: Rice-Eccles Stadium
NCAAF Odds: Utah -9

There’s no sense in beating around the bush with my Week 6 pick on this Pac-12 pairing since I genuinely believe that Utah Utes is going to hand Arizona a humbling defeat after losing their first game of the season last weekend. While Utah is just 3-6 ATS in its last nine games and 2-5 ATS in its last seven home games, Arizona is just 1-6 ATS in its last seven games and 2-4 ATS in its last half-dozen road games.

The Utes are averaging 26.4 points per game while limiting their opponents to just 18.2 points per game. While Arizona averages a healthy 29.2 points per contest, the Wildcats are also giving up a whopping 29.4 points per contest defensively. I know the underdog in this series has gone 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings between these two, but Utah’s loss last weekend – and Arizona’s underachieving defense – leads me to believe the Utes are going to hold it down at home with a big win!

My Pick: Utah 30 Arizona 20
