Notre Dame Fighting Irish

College football odds, Week 6: Oklahoma, LSU, Notre Dame all betting favorites

The No. 7 Oklahoma Sooners are 12-0 straight up and 6-6 against the spread in their last 12 games as a betting favorite. The Sooners will try to extend their winning streak as a favorite this Saturday when they take on the No. 19 Texas Longhorns in Dallas.

Oklahoma is a 7.5-point favorite on the college football odds at the Cotton Bowl at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. Since losing its season-opening game to Maryland, Texas has won each of its last four games, including impressive wins over TCU and USC. The Longhorns have covered the spread in each of their last five games played in the month of November.

Elsewhere, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish have moved up to No. 6 in the AP Top 25 coming off an impressive 38-17 win over the Stanford Cardinal last Saturday. This Saturday, the Fighting Irish are a 5-point road favorite visiting the No. 24 Virginia Tech Hokies. Virginia Tech is 12-0 SU and 10-2 ATS in its last 12 games against independent schools.

The No. 5 LSU Tigers are on the road Saturday to take on the No. 22 Florida Gators. LSU passed its first big road test two weeks ago at Auburn and will now face another one as 3.5-point road favorites. The Tigers are 4-1 SU in their last five games against Florida. Things don’t get any easier for LSU with a matchup against No. 2 Georgia coming up at home next Saturday.

Georgia doesn’t have nearly as tough of a game this week heading into that big matchup as it is a 26.5-point favorite at home against Vanderbilt. The Bulldogs are 20-3 SU in their last 23 games against the Commodores.

The rest of the top-five teams in action also have soft opponents this week as No. 1 Alabama (-34) visits Arkansas, No. 3 Ohio State (-25) hosts Indiana, and No. 4 Clemson visits Wake Forest. The Wake Forest game could be an interesting one for Clemson if quarterback Trevor Lawrence is unable to start.

And in one of the biggest surprises of the 2018 season, the Kentucky Wildcats are off to a 5-0 SU and 3-2 ATS start, earning them a No. 13 ranking. Kentucky is a 6-point underdog this Saturday on the road against the Texas A&M Aggies.
