Week 5 College Football Preview

OVERALL RECORD: 110-81-1 (57.6%)

2021 SEASON RECORD: 31-25-0 (55.3%)

TGIS is back hot again with a 8-4 record in Week 4. Let’s keep it rolling into week 5… HERE ARE THIS WEEK’S PICKS:

Week 5 Game of the Week (All Times CST)

Ole Miss at Alabama UNDER 80– Saturday 2:30pm

The line is around 14 which is about right for this game as Ole Miss is a top ten team in the nation. That makes us turn our head towards the point total. Both teams will score…. but 80 points??? Way too high of an over/under. Alabama wins by two scores.

Pick: Alabama 45-31

Top Picks of the Week

Iowa at Maryland (+3.5) – FRIDAY 8:00pm

Expect a close, fun Friday night matchup between two 4-0 teams. I still don’t trust Iowa’s offense and I think a reality check is coming. I like Maryland as a home underdog.

Texas (-4.5) at TCU OVER 65 – 11:00am

Texas showed against Texas Tech that they can score by putting 70 points on the Red Raiders. Now they play a TCU team that can’t stop the run and give up huge gains in the pass game. Texas by over a touchdown.

Ohio State (-14.5) at Rutgers – 2:30pm

Rutgers has been a tough opponent this year for teams… but no way do I trust them as only a two touchdown underdog against Ohio State. The Buckeyes will get back on track.

Mississippi State (+7.5) at Texas A&M UNDER 46 – 6:00pm

You can’t trust the Texas A&M offense after only scoring 10 points against Colorado and Arkansas. Seven points and the under are easy takes.

Boston College (+15) at Clemson – 6:30pm

Clemson offense is bad right now. Add in defensive lineman Bryan Breese is out for the year… this is not a good Clemson team. Boston College can cover.

UCONN (+16) at Vanderbilt -6:30pm

I know. I know. I’ve been fading UConn all season. But Vanderbilt shouldn’t be a 16 point favorite over anyone.

Western Kentucky (+11) at Michigan State – 6:30pm

Western Kentucky has been 3-0 against the spread. Why would I stop relying on their offense now? They have a tough one in East Lansing, but Michigan State showed vulnerability against Nebraska and they can cover a double digit spread.

Auburn at LSU (-3) – 8:00pm

Auburn has a QB controversy between Bo Nix and TJ Finley… neither are very good. LSU’s offense is starting to figure it out and should win Saturday night in Baton Rouge.

Washington (+2.5) at Oregon State – 8:00pm

WRONG TEAM FAVORED. Washington has started to turn it around and will be a much tougher opponent than Oregon State’s last opponent USC. Washington pulls out a close one.
