College football’s sixth weekend will attract bets from average Joes to professional bettors.
TCU Horned Frogs
is favored by 13 against No. 23
West Virginia Mountaineers
, No. 1
Alabama Crimson Tide
travels to 4-1
Texas A&M Aggies
as a 26.5-point favorite, and No. 7
is favored by 10 at home against arch-rival
Michigan State Spartans
in a game that’s already seen the line move several points.
With so many eye-popping games and so many odds on the move, you’ll want to know to what SportsLine’s advanced computer model is picking.
SportsLine’s Projection Model turned in double-digit profitable weeks in college football last season across all picks, including a remarkable 18-4 run on straight-up picks to open the season. Anyone who followed it during those weeks profited big. And it’s fresh off a week in which it called
Ohio State Buckeyes
continuing to cover huge spreads.
This week, the model simulated every top-25 game, plus the rest of the slate, and the results were surprising.
The model is once again loving Ohio State, this time to cruise past
, 49-11. The Buckeyes are 4-1 against the spread this season, and will easily cover a huge 31.5-point line on Saturday. Expect the Over to hit as well.
The model is also all-in on
Penn State Nittany Lions
, even on the road at
. The Nittany Lions are 14-point favorites, but the model is calling for a blowout, 39-16. Penn State is winning a whopping 87 percent of simulations and has covered every game this season.
One huge shocker: TCU, favored by two touchdowns against West Virginia, only wins by five. Vegas is greatly underestimating the Mountaineers, who have beaten their last three opponents by an average of 33 points.
Another stunner: the nation’s No. 2 team,
Wake Forest Demon Deacons
, but the score will be much closer than you think. Clemson is favored by three touchdowns, but the model is calling for a 29-13 Clemson victory. The Demon Deacons were 4-0 before dropping last week’s game against
Florida State Seminoles
It’s also calling for a top-25 team with high hopes to go down in flames, potentially wrecking its national championship bid in the process.
