Hurricane Matthew is already causing trouble, but if the conditions are right, Saturday's Florida State-Miami matchup could be the easiest NCAAF picks of the week.


Record: 9-11-2 ATS, 0-1 Totals

Into everyone's life, a little rain must fall. We got soaked with last week's Top 5 picks, but there's a bigger storm brewing in the Southeast, and it's already had an effect on the Week 6 college football schedule. Let's see if we can take advantage.


Boise State Broncos vs New Mexico Lobos (+17)

Friday, 9:00 p.m. ET, CBSSN

The college football odds haven't been kind to the Broncos (4-0 SU, 1-3 ATS) or the Lobos (2-2 SU, 1-3 ATS). However, New Mexico covered the spread in each of their last five meetings, and even beat Boise State last year as a 31-point road dog.

Free NCAAF Pick: New Mexico +17 (+100)
Best Line Offered: at Intertops

LSU vs Florida (+3)

12:00 p.m. ET, ESPN

Maybe we should have taken the Tigers last week against Mizzou after all. But now that we've seen what they can do under new head coach Ed Orgeron, we're happy to put LSU (3-2 SU, 1-4 ATS) in our college football picks against the hobbled Gators (4-1 SU, 1-4 ATS).

Free NCAAF Pick: LSU –2.5 (–120)
Best Line Offered: at 5Dimes

Brigham Young Cougars at Michigan State Spartans (–6)

3:30 p.m. ET

BYU (2-3 SU, 4-1 ATS) are one point away from sweeping the table at 5-0 ATS. The Spartans (2-2 SU, 1-3 ATS) have lost back-to-back games at favorites, yet they've steamed all the way from –4.5 at the open. Every point helps.

Free NCAAF Pick: BYU +6
Best Line Offered: at Bovada

Florida State Seminoles at Miami Hurricanes (–3)

8:00 p.m. ET, ABC

Assuming Hurricane Matthew doesn't force this game to be postponed, we like the UNDER to take advantage of the conditions and beat the posted total of 64 points. As with any weather-based pick, we suggest waiting closer to kick-off for more information.

Free NCAAF Pick: UNDER 66

Washington State Cougars at Stanford Cardinal (–7)

10:30 p.m. ET, ESPN

The Cardinal (3-1 SU and ATS) got absolutely smoked by Washington last week, but that just makes them a better value pick against the Cougars (2-2 SU, 3-1 ATS), who project to lose this game by double-digits.

Free NCAAF Pick: Stanford –7
