sportsformulator-com-header

It’s time to look forward to week 6 of the 2016 college football season and predict what the betting lines for the big games will be.  We cover seven games all on October 8, 2016.

These aren’t SportsFormulator’s predictions for the game, just predictions for the point spreads in week 6.

Alabama at Arkansas

The Tide didn’t look great beating Kentucky this week while Arkansas rolled over Alcorn State.  The Tide are favored but by how many on the road?

Predicted Betting Line: Alabama -10.5

Florida State at Miami

Florida State is coming off an upset loss to North Carolina while the Canes come in to this game undefeated.  It’s been awhile since the Canes were the higher tanked team in this game.  Can they handle the big stage?

Predicted Betting Line: Miami -3

Tennessee at Texas A&M

The Aggies held several players out to rest injuries while the Vols come in to this game after a Hail Mary win against Georgia.  Will Tennessee suffer a hangover after this emotional win?

Predicted Betting Line: Texas A&M -3.5

LSU at Florida

LSU gave Coach O an impressive 42-7 win over Missouri in his debut replacing Les Miles.  Florida won an ugly game at Vanderbilt.

Predicted Betting Line: Florida -3

Oklahoma vs. Texas

The Sooners held on to beat TCU in week 5 while Texas lost to Oklahoma State.  This game could be it for Charlie Strong if he’s not out before then.  Questions surrounding his job status were swirling entering this game last season and his team pulled off a big upset.  Will they do the same this year?

Predicted Betting Line: Oklahoma -7.5

Virginia Tech at North Carolina

Larry Fedora’s Tar Heels got a huge win at Florida State in week 5.  That’ll lead to a slightly inflated line in favor of UNC on Saturday.  Expect a lot of points in this one.

Predicted Betting Line: North Carolina -6

College Football Predictions Week 5 – 2016

SFpageheader

Les Miles is out at LSU in a surprise move.  At least surprising to be fired this early in the season.  Can Ed Orgeron finish out the season getting LSU to their full potential?

Three huge match-ups this week as Clemson hosts Louisville, Stanford visits Washington and Michigan plays Wisconsin.  These games will create national contenders.

College Football Predictions Week 3 – 2016

SFpageheader

Week 3 of the 2016 college football season is loaded with big games.  The race to the College Football Playoff will be greatly impacted by this weekend.

Big Games in Week 3

The top game of the weekend is Ohio State at Oklahoma.  The Buckeyes go on the road against a Sooners team that doesn’t want to fall to 1-2.

In the SEC, Alabama travels to Ole Miss.  The Rebels have won two straight over Bama so the Tide will want revenge.  Chad Kelly better be ready for the Tide’s fierce defense.

Florida State at Louisville is a huge game for the ACC.  The winner here becomes a favorite to win the ACC and make the playoff.

Using our predictive formula we’ve predicted every college football game on the board in week 3.  We predict several upsets this weekend.

Week 2 College Football results – 41 of 46 (89%) SU and 26-18-2 (59%) ATS.

SF16 COLLEGE FOOTBALL PREVIEW

2016-17 Preseason College Football Playoff Contenders

2016 COLLEGE FOOTBALL PREVIEW-1

Who will the committee choose for the 2017 College Football Playoff?  We examine our preseason contenders and try to predict the college football final four.

Oklahoma and Florida State

We predict two power five conference teams, Oklahoma and Florida State, go undefeated.  The committee won’t leave undefeated power 5 conference champions out of the playoff so OU and FSU are in the college football playoff.

Boise State

One group of five school we predict will be undefeated in 2016, Boise State.  The Broncos should run the table but don’t have a marquee game that can grab the committee’s eye.  The Broncos we think will be left out when compared to one-loss power 5 teams.

One- Loss Power 5 Teams

There are several one-loss power 5 conference teams that could be considered.  We know from the previous two years the committee rewards a team for winning its conference championship.

This knocks Alabama, UCLA, Michigan, Clemson and North Carolina out of consideration.  We see three of those four still going to New Year’s Six Bowls.

Ohio State and LSU are conference champions but Notre Dame is projected to go 11-1 as well.  The Buckeyes only 2016 loss is at Oklahoma.  Notre Dame loses it’s season finale at USC.  LSU loses in SEC play.  The late season loss knocks Notre Dame out.  Ohio State and LSU make the college football final four.

College Football Playoff Match-ups

We have Florida State, Oklahoma, LSU and Ohio State in the college football playoff.  The committee will have a tough time seeding these teams.

Florida State comes in with an undefeated season the includes great non-conference games against Ole Miss, Florida and South Florida.

Oklahoma brings in a win over another CFB Playoff team, Ohio State and a Big 12 conference championship where you beat every other team in the league.

LSU comes in as SEC Champions, the toughest league in college football and a non-conference win over Wisconsin.

Ohio State comes in as Big Ten Champs and a loss only on the road at fellow playoff team Oklahoma.

The committee won’t want to repeat a season a regular season match-up so Oklahoma and Ohio State will only replay if in the national championship.

Due to this, Ohio State has the better loss compared to LSU and will get the 3 seed.  Oklahoma will then be the 1 seed.

Look for Oklahoma vs. LSU and Florida State vs. Ohio State in this season’s College Football Playoff.

We predict Ohio State will win the National Championship.
