After two of the three highest Week 5 college football over/under totals hit the over for the first time this season, the Week 6 slate brings us a fresh set of high-scoring projections to consider placing wagers on.
With that in mind, here are the three highest totals, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, in Week 6 of the 2019 college football season.
1. Utah State vs. No. 5 LSU – O/U: 73.5 Points
LSU's offense has been flat-out ridiculous through four games, leading the nation with an average of 57.8 points per game (PPG), making the Tigers a candidate for this list each and every week. And nothing LSU has done recently points to them slowing down as the Tigers have scored at least 65 points in back-to-back games. Meanwhile, Utah State is averaging 38.5 PPG (tied for No. 19 in the NCAA), giving this game all the makings of a shootout.
2. Western Michigan vs. Toledo – O/U: 73 Points
Toledo and Western Michigan both have top-50 scoring units, averaging more than 34.5 PPG. Two of the last three meetings between these two programs have seen a combined score of at least 75 points, including a combined 90 points when they played in 2016. Given the recent history between these two, this 73-point over/under total is seemingly well deserved.
3. Arkansas State vs. Georgia State – O/U: 69.5 Points
Arkansas State and Georgia State are both averaging more than 32.5 PPG so far this season, meaning we could see some fireworks on Saturday afternoon. Additionally, Georgia State's defense is tied for the third-worst unit in the NCAA, surrendering 41.5 PPG, while Arkansas State's D has been similarly ineffective, allowing 36.0 PPG, which is the 17th-worst mark in the country. With two high-powered offenses facing off against two leaky defenses, this 69.5-point over/under total should come as no surprise.
