There's a host of intriguing early betting lines on a Week 6 college football slate that features a surprisingly high number of Top-25 teams hitting the road this weekend. 


After a Week 5 that saw Top-5 teams like Alabama, Clemson and Ohio State all fail to cover their respective lines, the sportsbooks have clearly taken a dip in confidence on these same teams going on the road for Week 6. 

Perhaps, the most eye-catching of all these lines comes out of College Station, where an unranked Texas A&M is somehow being favored by nearly six points over a 5-0 and scorching No. 13 Kentucky team. A&M is 4-1 against the spread this season, but making the Aggies outright favorites by 5.5 is a little surprising. 

No. 4 Clemson's new starting quarterback and true freshman Trevor Lawrence is still questionable after suffering a neck sprain in Week 5's nail-biter against Syracuse. The Tigers' spread over Wake Forest has fallen to just 17.5 points. Lawrence is expected to play. 

Lastly, Alabama's Heisman-favorite quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and the Crimson Tide are facing -34.5 points on the road against Arkansas – 14.5 points less than their Week 5 favor over Louisiana Lafayette. Arkansas is 1-3-1 ATS, and the Razorbacks have already been handily beaten by more than 30 points against an SEC opponent, failing to cover.
