College Football Week 7 and NFL Week 6 Point Spreads – Oklahoma -7.5 vs Texas

Written By Vegas Matty

The unbeaten Alabama Crimson Tide and Georgia Bulldogs appear to be on a collision course to meet in this year’s SEC Championship Game in December, although each of them has a tough road matchup with the Auburn Tigers looming next month. Until then the top-ranked Crimson Tide and fourth-ranked Bulldogs continue to carry massive price tags and will again this coming weekend.

Alabama opened as 29-point chalk against the Arkansas Razorbacks at BetOnline.AG and that number has ticked up slightly to -29.5 following their 27-19 road win over the Texas A&M Aggies last week. Meanwhile, Georgia opened as a 27.5-point fave versus the Missouri Tigers and that number is up to -28 after routing the Vanderbilt Commodores 45-14 for the team’s second consecutive blowout on the conference road.

Meanwhile No. 10 Auburn takes their show on the road to Baton Rogue to take on the LSU Tigers. There has already been some significant line movement in this game, with Auburn opening as a modest 4-point road favorite before climbing to -9 after hitting a high of -9.5. LSU enters off a 17-16 road victory against the Florida Gators, a much-needed bounce back after being upset by Troy the previous week.

Two Top 10 teams lost last Saturday to jumble the rankings a bit, with the Penn State Nittany Lions moving up to No. 3 replacing the Oklahoma Sooners, who fell to No. 12 after losing outright to Iowa St as 31 point favorites. This week the Sooners are listed as 7.5-point faves against the Texas Longhorns in the annual Red River Rivalry game after opening at -10.5.

The second-ranked Clemson Tigers kick off the weekend a little earlier than usual when they visit the Syracuse Orange at the Carrier Dome on Friday night. The Tigers opened as 21-point chalk and remain at the number despite the fact starting QB and Heisman hopeful Kelly Bryant suffered an ankle injury in Clemson’s win over Wake Forest. Clemson head coach Dabo Sweeney reportedly said Bryant will be limited in practice but is still expected to play at Syracuse.

NFL Week 6 is highlighted by a rematch of last season’s AFC Divisional Playoff game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Pittsburgh Steelers. The Chiefs opened as 3.5 point home favorites but have since been bet down to -3 even though the Steelers were crushed 30-9 at home by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Pittsburgh won two meetings with KC last year, including the 18-16 decision in the postseason.

Another intriguing NFC matchup takes place under the lights on Thursday Night Football with the Philadelphia Eagles visiting the Carolina Panthers.  The Panthers opened as 3-point home favs at BetOnline.AG and have remained there. Both teams are coming off impressive wins in Week 5 and have only one blemish each on their resume’s thus far.
