With a handful of ranked teams having compelling matchups in college football this week, Week 6 has all the potential to deliver another exciting slate of games.

If you're looking to place a wager on any of the games, we have selected three matchups to watch out for. Below is our list of Week 6 college football matchups that can be potentially exploited against the spread (ATS).

All betting lines, odds and spreads available via FanDuel Sportsbook.

1. No. 14 Iowa Hawkeyes (+3.5) vs. No. 19 Michigan Wolverines

While the pedigree of Michigan's football program is much more impressive than Iowa's, that hasn't exactly shown true in recent years and meetings. Iowa has won each of the last two meetings between the schools and five of the last six. Meanwhile, Michigan has been one of the more disappointing top teams in the country this season. After barely squeaking out a win against Army in overtime, the Wolverines got blown out by the Wisconsin Badgers the following week, losing 35-14. Yes, this game is in the Big House, but Iowa is rolling and Michigan hasn't looked great. Don't be surprised if the Hawkeyes come out on top here.

2. No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs (-24.5) at Tennessee Volunteers

This is a big number, but that's indicative of just how bad Tennessee has been this season. The Volunteers currently sit at 1-3 with three bad losses, including a 34-3 beatdown from the Florida Gators in Week 4. Florida is currently ranked No. 9 in the country. Georgia is ranked No. 3 in the country and is sitting at 4-0, with those wins coming by an average margin of 32.75 points per game (PPG). If the Vols cant find a way to play up to SEC competition, this game could quickly turn into a blowout.

3. No. 25 Michigan State vs No. 4 Ohio State (-20)

Justin Fields and Ohio State have been absolutely lighting up the competition so far this season, scoring at least 42 points every week and never surrendering more than 21 at any point. Michigan State will be Ohio State's toughest test yet, but coming into the Horseshoe isn't an easy task, especially against a Buckeyes team that's clicking on all cylinders. Additionally, both teams have played Indiana this season, and the results were quite telling. Michigan State defeated Indiana, 40-31, while Ohio State blew out the Hoosiers on the road, winning 51-10.
