Early College Football Week 5 Bets To Place

The Week 4 college football slate is loaded, but it’s not too early to take a peek at the odds for Week 5’s schedule, which includes a Caleb Williams vs. Shedeur Sanders showdown and a big-time SEC matchup between LSU and Ole Miss. Here’s a look at which bets to lock in this weekend.

Georgia (-13) vs. Auburn

Auburn hasn’t beaten an SEC opponent on the road since October 2021. A Tigers loss to Texas A&M in College Station could be all that’s needed to push this line just a bit further in Georgia’s favor.

The line is under two touchdowns partly because Georgia didn’t exactly look the part in its win over South Carolina, though a strong second half was probably a better indication of what’s to come for the Bulldogs. Even with their offensive question marks, the talent level for Georgia is more than capable of leading a 14+ point win over Auburn.

The Tigers’ only decent test this season was a narrow 14-10 win at California, and it’s still unclear whether Auburn’s offensive problems have even come close to being solved. It could be a long day against Georgia, and Auburn doesn’t look like it can give the Bulldogs as much of a challenge as the Gamecocks did. This is a line to lock in early.

Utah (+2.5 / Moneyline) vs. Oregon State

This week could force a big shift for both Utah and Oregon State. The Utes are expected to have Cameron Rising back for the first time this season and have become decisive favorites against UCLA. A big win over the Bruins would serve as a reminder that the back-to-back Pac-12 champions can’t be forgotten so easily.

Meanwhile, Oregon State is favored at home against Washington State. That line might be a little off. Washington State has a prolific offense led by Cameron Ward, and whether the Beavers’ defense can carry enough weight to earn the win is far less certain than the odds make it seem.

If either of these scenarios play out in Week 4, Utah could become even on the moneyline or even a slight favorite in Corvallis. I’m locking in the Utes this weekend.

Kansas (+17) vs. Texas

The Longhorns have looked strangely vulnerable at times against Rice and Wyoming, though they recovered well enough to win by three possessions in both games. What if they start slow again on the road at Baylor?

The Bears aren’t a great litmus test – their only win came against an FCS school, and they have unsolved quarterback issues – but Baylor was able to keep its matchup with Utah competitive. If Quinn Ewers has the game he had against Wyoming, it won’t reflect well on Texas’ outlook.

Enter Kansas. The Jayhawks have scored 30+ points in all three of their games this season, and it would be pretty surprising if they didn’t have another strong showing against BYU on Saturday. That could be enough to bring this line much closer to two touchdowns than three.

Notre Dame (-6.5) vs. Duke

Duke has been a tremendous story this season. The Blue Devils thoroughly impressed against Clemson, and they’re one of the most well-coached teams in the ACC, let alone the power five conferences. They still might not be fully ready for Notre Dame, even at home.

The Fighting Irish have a fifth-year star at QB in Sam Hartman, and the running game looks tremendous with Audric Estime manning the backfield. A win over Ohio State would improve Notre Dame’s outlook tremendously.

Duke likely won’t get blown out in this one, but the line being under a touchdown feels temporary unless Notre Dame really gets its doors blown off by the Buckeyes. I don’t think they will. I’m taking Notre Dame as long as this line is where it is.
