Following a win over Florida and a bye week, the Tennessee Volunteers will take the field on Saturday sporting their highest AP ranking since 2006. No. 8 Tennessee will visit No. 25 LSU in a noon ET kickoff and the Volunteers are 3-point favorites on the road according to the latest Week 6 college football odds from Caesars Sportsbook. In another top-25 matchup that kicks off at noon ET, No. 19 Kansas will host No. 17 TCU and the Jayhawks are 7.5-point home underdogs in this week's college football lines.
There will also be an SEC doubleheader on CBS as No. 2 Georgia (-28.5) hosts Auburn in a 3:30 p.m. ET kickoff followed by No. 2 Alabama (-24) hosting Texas A&M for an 8 p.m. ET start. So which side should you be backing in those four high-profile college football matchups, and what other Week 6 college football spreads should you be targeting on Saturday?

Top college football predictions for Week 6
One of the college picks the model is high on in Week 6: Auburn (+28.5) stays within the spread when it faces No. 2 Georgia on Saturday. Auburn head coach Bryan Harsin appears to be on one of the hottest seats in college football but he'll catch the Bulldogs coming off their worst performance of the season thus far last week in a near loss to Missouri.
Georgia trailed by double-digits in the fourth quarter as Stetson Bennett only managed to complete 54.5% of his passes. Now he'll take on an Auburn pass defense that has only allowed two passing touchdowns all season. Opponents have only completed 57.7% of their passes against the Tigers and Auburn only allows 193.6 yards per game through the air.
Kirby Smart's squad has now turned the ball over five times in its last two games and Auburn has generated a trio of turnovers in its last two games. The model is predicting that the Auburn defense helps slow the Georgia passing attack and limits the Bulldogs to 36 points on average, helping the Tigers cover the spread in nearly 70% of simulations.
Another one of the model's top college football picks: No. 7 Oklahoma State (-9) cruises to a blowout win over Texas Tech. The Red Raiders have played a grueling schedule over the past month, facing four straight top-25 opponents. They are coming off a 37-28 loss to then-No. 25 Kansas State and are on the road for the third time in four weeks, so this is a difficult scheduling spot for them.
Oklahoma State has only had to go on the road once this season, taking down then-No. 16 Baylor in a 36-25 win last week. The Cowboys have cruised to a 4-0 record and will be playing in front of an electric crowd on Saturday. Quarterback Spencer Sanders has thrown for nearly 1,100 yards to go along with 11 touchdowns and just two interceptions.
SportsLine's model expects him to have another big day against Texas Tech, totaling more than 290 yards of offense and three touchdowns. His success is one reason why Oklahoma State is covering the spread more than 70% of the time. See which other teams the model likes here.
