My 10 best Week 6 college football ATS bets

Phil Steele picks New Mexico St.-Ole Miss

Phil Steele offers his pick for the non-conference game between New Mexico State and Ole Miss (-43) in Oxford.

Each week during the 2015 college football season I will offer up my selections and scores for the weekend's biggest games and a handful of other key matchups.

This year has started off on a solid note. In the first five weeks my selections have now gone 41-9 (82 percent) picking the straight-up (SU) winners and 28-21-1 (58 percent) against the spread (ATS).

So far this year there have been 15 meetings between ranked teams. The higher rated team is 10-5 SU (2-3 last week) but the 'dog is 8-7 ATS in those matchups. This week there are only two games between ranked teams.

Here are my 10 best bets for Week 6 in college football:

Wisconsin Badgers at Nebraska Cornhuskers (-1.5)

3:30 PM ET, ABC

While neither team is in the top 25, this is a key game in determining the Big Ten West title, as both are very much alive. Each was upset last week with Nebraska suffering its third loss in the final seconds of a game (or in overtime). The Cornhuskers were outgained by Illinois 292-382 but did lead 13-0 in the fourth quarter.
