In Depth Analysis On The College Football Week 6 Winning Predictions For Top Underdogs

 

 

Florida State Seminoles (3-2) at Miami-FL Hurricanes (4-0)

When: Saturday, October 8, 2016 at 8:00 PM ET
Where: Hard Rock Stadium
TV: ABC
Live Stream: ABC Live Stream
NCAAF Odds: Miami Hurricanes -1.5

Analysis: Florida State Seminoles (3-2 SU, 2-3 ATS) might be struggling right now, but they’re my pick to beat Miami (4-0 SU, 4-0 ATS) outright to cover the college football betting line as a slight road dog. Florida State has gone a near-perfect 6-1 ATS in their last seven games following an SU loss, 4-1 ATS in their last five games following an ATS loss and a consistent 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall.

While Miami is 4-0 ATS this season and 4-1 ATS in their last five games in the month of October, the Hurricanes will be taking on a Florida State team that has gone 19-4 SU in its last 23 road games. I like Florida State to get the outright road win and ATS cover, mostly because they have more talent than Miami – and a whole lot more desperation.

My Pick: Florida State 28 Miami 24

Alabama Crimson Tide (5-0) at Arkansas Razorbacks (4-1)

When: Saturday, October 8, 2016 at 7:00 PM ET
Where: Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium
TV: ESPN
NCAAF Odds: Arkansas Razorbacks +13

Analysis: While I was really high on Arkansas Razorbacks (4-1 SU, 2-3 ATS) before the start of the season, I’m not feeling the Razorbacks quite as much as I was a month ago. Having said that…let me also say that I still like the Razorbacks to find a way to cover the spread against Alabama (5-0 SU, 3-2 ATS) in this matchup. While the Crimson Tide have won nine straight over their SEC rivals, Arkansas lost at Alabama by last season by 13 points and fell to the Tide by just one point in their heartbreaking 14-13 home loss in 2014.

I know Alabama has gone 8-4 ATS in its last 12 games and 4-2 ATS in their last six road games, but Arkansas is 6-1 SU in its last seven games, 6-2 ATS in their last eight SEC games and 16-7 ATS in their L/23 games against a team with a winning record. With the home team in this series going 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings, I say the Arkansas Razorbacks find a way to keep the final score closer than expected.

My Pick: Alabama 27 Arkansas 21
