"Stanford Steve" Coughlin and Chris "The Bear" Fallica preview Week 6 of the 2022 college football season as only they can, offering their top bets, nuggets and totals worth wagering on.

Odds and lines are from Caesars Sportsbook unless otherwise noted.

The Bear (Last week: 4-2. Season: 21-8-1)
Stanford Steve (Last week: 3-1. Season:10-10-1)

The plays

Houston at Memphis (-3, 57.5)
7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2, Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium, Memphis

The Bear: I've faded the Cougars twice and have been on the right side both times. However this is a spot I like Houston. Memphis may be 4-1, but wins over Navy, Arkansas State, North Texas and Temple hardly get the juices flowing. If the Cougars haven't thrown in the towel on the season, they should win this game.
