College Football Betting Recap

Week 6 in NCAA football betting was an exciting one, with several undefeated teams going head to head and splitting people’s opinions at sportsbooks in the process.

The battle of Michigan, pitting Michigan State against Michigan, probably had the most betting buzz over the weekend. Led by dynamic Denard Robinson at quarterback, the 5-0 Wolverines were favored at home to the 5-0 Michigan State Spartans. But those who felt the visiting Spartans were the more legit team got rewarded.

Michigan State won 34-17, amassing 536 yards of offense. Edwin Baker tallied 147 rushing yards. Meanwhile, Robinson got picked off three times and was a big reason why this game fell UNDER the total of 63.5.

Were you feeling lucky betting on South Carolina as a 6.5-point underdog at home to No. 1 Alabama? Steve Spurrier’s Gamecocks did the unthinkable and knocked off the defending national champs, possibly ending their hopes of a repeat in the process.

South Carolina scored on its first three possessions to stake out a 21-3 lead and held the Crimson Tide to just 34 rushing yards. The surprising 35-point outburst from the Gamecocks helped push this game OVER the common projected sportsbook total of 48.


The Michigan game settled the score between two undefeated teams and another matchup, LSU versus Florida, did the same.

A week after taking a beating from Alabama, the Gators got their hearts broken on Saturday. The LSU Tigers, who were underdogs by roughly a touchdown at most books, won a 33-29 thriller. Quarterback Jarrett Lee – not Jordan Jefferson – hooked up with Terrance Tolliver for the winning touchdown pass with just six seconds left.

The wild shootout naturally went OVER the total of 42.5.

What does Week 7 hold for college football bettors? No. 15 Iowa will hope for a big road victory when it travels to Michigan, which will look to rebound after losing a painful one to Michigan State. The Hawkeyes are favored by about 3.5 points in the early lines.

The gigantic Ryan Mallett hopes to play giant killer as he takes No. 14 Arkansas on the road against the 6-0 Auburn Tigers. Auburn is favored, but only by three points. Remember, Mallett did lead a wild comeback at Georgia earlier this season.

The other {URL=http://www.oddsshark.com/Stats/Matchup/Football/NCAAF/27813}marquee betting matchup {/URL}pits Ohio State, which looks like the country’s new top-ranked team, against Wisconsin on the road. The undefeated Buckeyes are favored by six points give or take at most books among the early lines.

Buckeyes quarterback Terrelle Pryor rides a 334-yard, three-touchdown performance against Indiana into Wisconsin this week. With 15 touchdown passes and just three interceptions this season, he’s a serious Heisman Trophy contender.
