College Football Week 6 Free Picks
If you watched that game last night in Tampa, you almost wanted the South Florida Bulls to lose the game. I guess the fans expressed all their emotions at the Tampa Bay Rays game, they forgot to save some for the night game.
The Bulls looked flat and you had the idea that the longer the Panthers hung around in that game the better chance they had to pull it out. LeSean McCoy looked sensational by making Bulls’ defenders miss all game, the kid will be playing on Sundays. Both the Utes and Cougars from the Mountain West remained undefeated with wins early in the week.
Our record through 2 weeks is 3-3 but we are confident it will be 6-3 following this week.
Let’s take a look at the free college football picks for Saturday.
1. Connecticut Huskies @ North Carolina Tar Heels (-7.5, O/U 46.5)
Pick: Connecticut Huskies +7.5 : Who is the ranked team in this game? Both teams are missing their starting quarterback so the running game will be important in this one. The Huskies feature Heismen candidate Donald Brown, who leads the nation in rushing and second in touchdowns. We like our chances with Huskies, play the points.
2. Arizona State Sun Devils @ California Golden Bears (-8.5, O/U 54)
Pick: Over 54: We like the over in this contest because both teams can light up the scoreboard and create huge plays on offense. Both quarterbacks have confidence in their ability and both offences share synchronicity. Defence will be an afterthought as these teams will be trading points all night long. We predict a final score of 45-34 in favor of the Golden Bears.
3. Western Kentucky Hilltoppers @ Virginaia Tech Hockies (-28, O/U 43.5)
Pick: Virginia Tech -28: This Western Kentucky team has really struggled against big name programs with big loses at Indiana, Alabama and Kentucky, this week against Virginia Tech may be tougher. The Hockies are playing good football since an opening season loss to East Carolina, Frank Beamer has his team playing to their capability. We expect the Hockies to jump on this team early and the defence to minimize the Hilltoppers opportunities.
