If you needed a reminder that Las Vegas has mastered the whole point spread thing, you got it in Week 5. Georgia-LSU and Ohio State-Wisconsin—the two biggest games on a docket loaded with intrigue—each ended in… pushes. Shucks, that's not nearly as much fun.
You didn’t require this reminder, of course, but you got one anyway. Vegas is good.
In the land of the AP Top 25, Week 6 doesn’t pack the same punch from a matchup standpoint, but there are a handful of fabulous games. On top of that, the oddsmakers have provided a handful of downright fascinating lines that look almost too good to be true.
Remember: If it looks too easy, it probably is. Well, not always, but just keep this in mind before you scroll to the Georgia-Tennessee slide.
As for how the AP Top 25 will fare against the spread, let’s pick ‘em and hope the solid start stays solid.
