Top Three Week 6 College Football ATS Picks

Utah State vs. LSU 2019
  • After five weeks of college football, elite programs are dominating without a single upset to date. But, Week 6 will see some of the unbeaten teams square off so there might be an upset lined up.
  •  The lines for Week 6 of college football are less than ideal, with few clear winners jumping out. But, there could be some good ATS picks if you know what to look for.

Top Three Week 6 College Football ATS Picks

Here are our top three college football ATS picks for Week 6.

Utah State at LSU

  • When: October 05, 2019, 12:00 PM ET
  • Where: Tiger Stadium-LSU
  • College Football Lines: LSU -27.5
  • Over/Under: 73
  • Moneyline: Utah State +1200 vs. LSU -3200

Analysis: If you’re an LSU fan, don’t get your panties in a bunch. The Tigers are the big favorites to win this game, and I don’t think the Aggies will be able to keep up with LSU’s passing offense.

However, LSU might be looking ahead to Florida, and this could work against them. Utah State also has a track record for playing well in these types of games, and it could get the Tigers into hot water if they’re not careful.

Aggies quarterback, Jordan Love, is quite good. But, he’ll need to play the best football of his life if he’s to keep up with LSU’s offense.

LSU is playing at break-neck speed on offense, and they’re probably going to go all out in this game to get the early jump on the Aggies. However, the Tigers’ defense has to get off the field quickly, and they aren’t the best at doing so on third-down opportunities.

Betting Trends

  • Utah State is 4-1 ATS in their last five games.
  • Utah State is 10-5 ATS in their last 15 games played on a Saturday.
  • Louisiana State is 5-1 ATS in its last six games.
  • Louisiana State is 2-4 ATS in their last six games played in week 6.

Pick: Utah State +27.5

Iowa vs. Michigan

  • When: October 05, 2019, 12:00 PM ET
  • Where: Michigan Stadium
  • College Football Lines: Michigan -3.5
  • Over/Under: 47.5
  • Moneyline: Iowa +155 vs. Michigan -175

Analysis: Michigan rebounded from a bad loss at Wisconsin with a lights-out 52-0 win over Rutgers last week. But, seeing the Wolverines at home as a field-goal favorite opens up a lot of questions.

It's just Michigan's third time in their last 27 home games double-digits do not favor them. But the reason is that people are backing the Hawkeyes because of how they're playing football.

Iowa is playing great on both sides of the ball – 8.5 points per game allowed, eight touchdown passes with zero interceptions – while Michigan, on the other hand, isn’t having a great season. That said, Iowa’s toughest test this season was against Iowa State, and they only won that game by one point.

Michigan might have crushed Rutgers, but that’s not saying much. And the way the Hawkeyes are playing, even if the line’s been bet down to 3.5-points, there’s still good value on Iowa.

Betting Trends

  • Iowa is 4-2 ATS in their last six games when playing on the road against Michigan.
  • Iowa is 4-1 ATS in their last five games played in October.
  • Michigan is 1-7 ATS in their last eight games.
  • Michigan is 7-1 ATS in their last eight games played in week 6.

Pick: Iowa +3.5

Kent State at Wisconsin

  • When: October 05, 2019, 12:00 PM ET
  • Where: Camp Randall Stadium
  • College Football Lines: Wisconsin -35
  • Over/Under: 59
  • Moneyline: N/A

Analysis: The last time Wisconsin played, they survived against Northwestern right after riding the high of crushing Michigan. But, they’re getting more than five touchdowns against Kent State, and that may be off.

The Golden Flashes have been playing good offense, and their two losses were against excellent teams (Arizona State and Auburn). Last week, they lit up Bowling Green with 62 points and gained 750 yards.

Wisconsin will win this game, but I think the Golden Flashes will keep up. Take Kent State plus the points.

Betting Trends

  • Wisconsin is 4-1 ATS in their last five games.
  • Wisconsin is 1-4 ATS in their last five games played in October.
  • Wisconsin is 2-7 ATS in their last nine games played in week 6.

Pick: Kent State +36
