No. 1 Georgia survived a huge scare as a 31-point favorite in Saturday’s college football action, so the point spreads don’t always mean a lot.

But they do give us a pulse to start with for the week, and a place to get some value bets in before the lines move throughout the week.

In Week 6 of the college football season, the game everyone thought would be the week’s biggest — Alabama-Texas A&M and the Nick Saban-Jimbo Fisher grudge match. But with A&M already having lost twice and Bama looking vulnerable, particularly with quarterback Bryce Young leaving with an injury Saturday, that one has taken a backseat. Alabama is favored by 23½ points, so not much of a contest is expected.

Likewise, the annual Texas-Oklahoma showdown at the Texas State Fair has lost a lot of luster with four combined losses between the teams. Oklahoma is a 4-point favorite to open.

Instead, eyes turn elsewhere around the country, especially to Lawrence, Kansas, where the nation’s most surprising 5-0 team, the Jayhawks, plays host to another unbeaten in TCU. The Horned Frogs are laying 5 points on the opening line.

Also, No. 7 Tennessee travels to 4-1 LSU, with the Volunteers opening as a 3½-point favorite, and the Pac-12 race will thin out with games between Washington State (4-1) and No. 6 USC (5-0) and between No. 12 Utah (4-1) and UCLA (5-0). USC is favored by 10½ to start, and Utah is a 3½-point road favorite.

Here’s a complete schedule and list of the available Week 6 point spreads and over/under totals at Caesars Sportsbook.
