College Football Week 6 Betting Recap:
– This was a memorable week in the college football season and it all started on Thursday night with Arizona’s shocking upset over 21-point favorite Oregon. Arizona was as high as +1,375 on the moneyline at 5Dimes to beat the Ducks on their home turf and they came out with a 31-24 victory. The loss immediately dropped Oregon’s title odds from 9:1 to 22:1 and improved Arizona’s title odds from 225:1 to 125:1. By Monday morning, Arizona was as low as 50:1 at Sportsbook.com.
– Friday night then brought on another huge road upset win, this time Utah St beating 21-point favorite BYU. Heisman hopeful QB Taysom Hill suffered a broken leg for BYU during the game and they were never able to recover. These two upsets set the stage for a tremendous Saturday of football.
– Saturday was a great day for sportsbooks with a number of upsets and late covers (Ole Miss, Notre Dame, Nebraska).

Bad Beat/Stupid Coaching Decision:
Texas A&M -1.5 2H. The 2H odds were Texas A&M -1.5 and with the 2H score of Miss St 20-14, bettors on A&M needed a TD and 2-point conversion to cover. Texas A&M rallied late in the game despite being down big and scored a TD to make the game 48-30 with less than 2 minutes left. Instead of going for 2 to get the game to 16 points (only 2 possessions), A&M Coach Kevin Sumlin decided to kick the XP to make it a 17-point game and breaking the hearts of A&M 2H bettors.
