College Football 2023 Week 6 Picks And Top 25 Matchups
The college football 2023 Week 6 schedule includes four Top 25 matchups to kickoff October. I cover the Top 25 action tee-to-green in my college football 2023 Week 6 betting report at Forbes. I chip-in and add my weekly Top 25 Picks and Opinions in my updates at Off Shore Gaming Association. Check out the game analysis before I post more here each week with added picks and information you can bet on.
Our Picks went 2-0 last week to improve the strong run of winners this season in Top 25 matchups, games and bonus picks.
I like to dig into stats and have provided information and insight for years looking for match-up edges, along with stats and situational plays that can often be overlooked when evaluating the games and match-ups. See my bonus pick this week below, and know there are more as we evaluate adjusted betting lines from early season, over-reactions in the market, scheduling situations, coaching and motivation that affect the outsomes beyond the stats.
We’re off to a strong start in our 2023 college football point spread prognosis and picks.
All college football 2023 Top 25 Picks and Opinions (and some bonus picks/opinions) through Week 5 are 12-5, including 10-3 ATS on sides. I focus on the Top 25 games for this weekly exercise and picks as the media coverage of the top teams and most bet games are more popular, but not necessarily the best games to bet.

College Football 2023 Week 6 Top 25 Picks And Matchups
There are four NCAA Football Top 25 matchups between ranked teams in Week 6. Analysis of the Week 6 Top 25 games plus bonus picks are at OSGA.
No. 12 Oklahoma vs No. 3 Texas | 12:00 p.m. ET on ABC
Line: Texas -5.5 and Total 60.5
Opinion: Texas and Lean Over
No. 23 LSU at No. 21 Missouri | 12:00 p.m. ET on ESPN
Line: LSU -5.5 and Total 64
Opinion: LSU and Over
No. 20 Kentucky at No. 1 Georgia | 7:00 p.m. ET on ESPN
Line: Georgia -14.5 and Total 47.5
No. 10 Notre Dame at No. 25 Louisville | 7:30 p.m. ET on ABC
Line: Notre Dame -6 and Total 54.5
Opinion: Notre Dame
Opinion: Oklahoma State (+11.5) vs Kansas State (Friday, was an outright winner). This line would have been nearly a FG at the start of the season, and while K-State has nearly a 200 Club offense, it’s the Cowboys playing with major redemption and a positive home underdog role for coach Gundy.
Pick: No. 25 Fresno State (-5.5 or -6) at Wyoming. The Cowboys have cashed for us twice as big ‘Dogs this season, but Wyoming (4-1) has been fortunate while getting out-gained by 60 yards per game, and especially the last two wins. Fresno State (5-0) is the only Group of 5 team in the AP Top 25. The Bulldogs feature a top-10 run defense allowing 83 rushing YPG at 2.9 YPR. Fresno State has dominated Wyoming in the last four meetings including a combined 47-0 the last two years when they were not as dominant. Look for the Bulldogs to extend their winning streak to 15 games with a big road win in Laramie.
