The No. 1 team in the country has won its last two games by a combined score of 125-3.
No one wants to play Alabama right now.
The Crimson Tide (5-0) head to College Station this weekend to take on Texas A&M (4-1) in a clash of two high-powered SEC offenses. Alabama is favored by almost four touchdowns.
Alabama, Clemson and Oklahoma remain the top three teams in the country.
All three schools are in action this weekend.
VegasBetting is going to use one of them in our two-game parlay bet of the week (odds provided by bovada.lv).
VGB’s college football Week 6 parlay pick — Take Clemson (-22.5) over Wake Forest and Notre Dame (-15) over North Carolina for a $25 parlay. If both teams cover the spread, the payoff is $66.13. If either team loses, the ticket is void.
Wake Forest at No. 2 Clemson (-22.5) — The Tigers won their third straight game against a Top 25 team last weekend when they beat Virginia Tech by two touchdowns. The defending national champions (5-0) have also beat Auburn and Louisville this season.
Junior quarterback Kelly Bryant led the charge against the Hokies, rushing for 94 yards while throwing for 186 yards and one touchdown. Bryant is currently 100-1 following Week 5 play to win the Heisman Trophy. Penn State running back Saquon Barkley is the even money favorite.
Virginia Tech never really got much going against the Tigers, and that will be the biggest problem for the Demon Deacons. This Clemson defense is one of the best in the country, allowing just nine points per game.
Wake Forest (4-1) lost a heartbreaker to Florida State last weekend after leading in the fourth quarter. QB John Wolford completed 24-of-34 passes for 271 yards, with one interception. He also led the team in rushing with 63 yards and a TD on 19 carries.
Both teams are 4-1 against the spread this season, but the Tigers are 5-0 ATS versus a team with a winning record.
Fighting Irish Surging In Top 25 Rankings
No. 21 Notre Dame (-15) at North Carolina — The Fighting Irish lost a tight game in Week 2 to Georgia, who has climbed to No. 5 in the rankings. Since that game, Notre Dame is 3-0 and has outscored their opponents 139-55. The Tar Heels, who have been favored in three of their five games, are 1-4 overall and 0-3 at home in Chapel Hill.
The Fighting Irish, led by quarterback Brandon Wimbush, are in line for a major bowl game if their play continues at this level. Wimbush is hardly a prolific passer, completing just over 50 per cent of his passes, but the Notre Dame ground attack is superb. The team averages more than 300 yards a game.
The Tar Heels seem to struggle on both sides of the ball. Their defense gives up of 33 points per game. They will likely offer little resistance in this one.
