College Football Week 6 Opening Odds – By the Numbers

Get amped up for some more great college football betting action by taking a look at some of the more notable facts and figures for the Week 6 NCAA football betting odds.


The Numbers

0: The number of times an unranked road team has been favored over a ranked home team this season. Until now. Stanford isn’t just a minor chalk at Utah; it’s a 4.5-point favorite in a Pac-12 game that both these teams figure to have to have if they want to compete for a league title. The Stanford story is awfully interesting since the team has already been dumped by both USC and San Diego State this season. However, even ESPN’s FPI suggests that the Cardinal are winning this game a whopping 76.2 percent of the time, and that’s a good indication that they’ll probably get the job done and bounce the Utes from the rankings by this time next week.

1: The number of wins Iowa State has against Oklahoma since 1961. The Cyclones haven’t really been all that close to the Sooners recently either. OU has been favored by double-digits in every game in this series since 2005. This is expected to be yet another romp of epic proportions in this one-sided series.

10: The number of points the last three meetings between Florida State and Miami have been decided by. The Hurricanes have been getting closer and closer to knocking off FSU, but they just haven’t been able to get over the hump since winning in 2009 in Tallahassee. The last time the Canes won at home in this series was back in 2004, a shocking revelation in a series that used to be owned by “The U.” Miami is actually a short road favorite at the Doak on Saturday afternoon after opening at a pick ’em.

34: The number of points USC is favored by over Oregon State, making it the biggest favorite of the college football weekend. The Trojans were beaten last week in Pullman by Washington State, making their margin for error the rest of the way effective nil if they want to play in the College Football Playoff. Oregon State has one of the worst teams in the Power Five this year, especially with starting quarterback Josh Luton on the shelf for the rest of the season. The Men of Troy really haven’t won a game impressively this season. If they can’t put away the Beavs by a huge amount, they’re clearly in some trouble.

365: The number of consecutive games Florida has gone since being shutout, tying the NCAA record held by Michigan. If the Gators can put a point on the board against LSU on Saturday afternoon, they’ll be the all-time record-holders. Remember that this game was rescheduled to the Swamp this year after moving last year’s game to Baton Rouge because of Hurricane Matthew. This might work out incredibly well for both teams, especially with LSU ultimately struggling this season and probably effectively punting the rest of the way. This is the first time the Gators have been favored against LSU since 2012.
