Welcome to the sixth installment of my weekly top 25 Vegas power ratings for 2017. I have nine sets of power ratings, and I will supply the set that is closest to what Las Vegas uses. The folks over at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook are giving me their ratings this year, and last week I brought in a comparison to my average game grades from philsteele.com. These take into account this year's stats, including yards rushing, passing and points for both offense and defense, as well as opponent strength.

Here are the top 25 teams for Week 6:

1. Alabama Crimson Tide (Rating: 143.9)

Alabama was finally rated No. 1 by the FPI last week and remained there. The Crimson Tide were expected to win by 28 points last week and won by 63, so their margin has grown. All four sets of power ratings continue to have the Tide at the top.
