The public loves themselves a favorite.

That's not typical for a college football Saturday but they are all over the favorites in Week 6.

Four out of the five most popular picks of the day are favorites. The people have no fear of laying the points.

Let's get into the most popular public plays of the day including Air Force vs. Utah State and North Carolina vs. Miami.

Most Popular College Football Picks

1. Air Force (-10) vs. Utah State

7 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1

Air Force has been a public darling throughout the season and that's not changing today.

That strategy has worked out for the people so far as the Falcons are 3-2 against the spread. However, they are 0-1 ATS so far this season on the road.

The public is sticking with their guns and taking the fighter jets as the most popular pick of the day. Air Force is currently getting 90% of the bets.

The Public Play: Air Force -10

2. Duke (-3.5) vs. Georgia Tech

4 p.m. ET

Duke is undergoing a bit of a resurgence under new head coach Mike Elko. Georgia Tech is hoping for the same resurgence. But it's not coming this year as GT already fired its head coach and athletic director four weeks into the season.

The public is backing the Blue Devils in this matchup and laying the 3.5 on the road. Duke is getting 83% of the public bets.

The Public Play: Duke -3.5

3. Appalachian State (-18.5) vs. Texas State

7 p.m. ET on ESPN+

App State is another public darling and the people are back on the Mountaineers for Week 6.

They're coming off a bye week after a devastating loss to James Madison in which they blew a 20+ point lead.

The public is expecting the Mountaineers to bounce back as they're getting 84% of the public bets.

The Public Play: App State -18.5

4. UConn (-5.5) vs. Florida International

7 p.m. ET on ESPN3

Is UConn back? That remains to be seen but they're showing some signs of life under new head coach Jim Mora Jr.

They picked up their second win of the season last week vs. Fresno State and they're now just one win away from hitting their season total of over 2.5.

The Huskies have a great chance to do that today against one of the worst teams in college football.

The public is backing them against FIU as UConn is getting 80% of the public bets.

The Public Play: UConn -4.5

5. North Carolina (+3.5) vs. Miami

4 p.m. ET on ESPN2

This is a game that can teach us a lot about these two teams.

Both schools are fringe candidates to win the ACC Coastal division and whoever wins this game could vault themselves into position to win the division.

The public is backing North Carolina to take care of business on the road. The Tar Heels are getting 78% of the public bets.

The Public Play: North Carolina +3.5
