Mike the TigerWeek 5 NCAA football odds are posted here at Bankroll Sports, and we are already set to break down some of the best games on the college football betting lines for the week ahead. Join us as we take our best shot at the NCAA football Vegas odds in Week 5.

First off, we can really be thankful over the fact that this isn’t a week in which there are a ton of dog games like there were last week. We have some real marquee battles all across the board, and there are a lot of Top 25 teams on upset alert, unlike last week, when the entire Top 25 managed to hold firm, save for Stanford and Michigan State losing games against other ranked teams. In fact, there isn’t a single game pitting an FCS and an FBS team against each other for the first time all season long, and that should make for much better football.

We’ll start on Thursday and Friday with all of the midweek games. Over in the ACC, there is a crucial game on Thursday, as the Virginia Tech Hokies and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets face off with one another. There is a good chance that this could act as an elimination game in the ACC Coastal Division race, especially if G-Tech, which has already beaten North Carolina and Duke, turns out to be victorious. Head Coach Frank Beamer and his Hokies haven’t looked all that sharp over the course of the last week or two, but they are winning games, something more than what we could say about a lot of other teams across the country, specifically in the ACC. Georgia Tech is giving 7.5 in this one, and that’s a heck of a lot of points to be giving in the ACC, especially in the Coastal Division where things couldn’t quite possibly be any tighter than they already are.

The Iowa State Cyclones have yet to win a game this year, but they are going to have a puncher’s chance in this one on the road against the Tulsa Golden Hurricane in a rare situation where a big time conference school has to go on the road to take on a Conference USA team. We haven’t seen a lot of luck for the big boys in this situation yet this year, especially out of the bottom of the Big XII, and the oddsmakers are quite aware of that. ISU is getting a field goal in this one against the Golden Hurricane, who in their own right, only have one victory

On Friday, there is a great game out of the MWC, as the San Jose State Spartans play host to the Utah State Aggies. San Jose State is a team that we remain high on in spite of the fact that it is only 1-2 on the season, and it has a chance to make a name for itself on national television on Friday night against Utah State. The Aggies have the names attached to them, including QB Chuckie Keeton, who figures to be one of the top players in the conference this year. Utah State is giving 9.5 on the road, but that could be a grossly overstated number, knowing that these two teams are very familiar with one another having played all those years in the WAC before transferring over.

In the final Friday nighter, the BYU Cougars are giving 21 to the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders.

NCAA Football BetDSIPerhaps the best news is the fact that the 21 points being laid in that game between BYU and MTSU is one of the higher spreads of the weekend. At least as of this point, the only team that is favored by more than four touchdowns is the Oregon Ducks. The Quack Attack is excellent and is running up the score against anyone and everything that it faces. Now, it gets to take on a very similarly constructed Cal Golden Bears outfit that doesn’t nearly have the same type of athletes on it. QB Marcus Mariota and the gang should be in for a big time day for sure against what should be a challenged Cal team defensively, and that’s why the Ducks are laying 35.5.

There are some big road favorites that deserve to be pointed out. The Florida State Seminoles, who have destroyed all of their foes this year, are -21.5 on the road in their second conference game against the Boston College Eagles, while the Oklahoma State Cowboys are -21 on the road against the offensively challenged West Virginia Mountaineers. Why are these two games so notable? They’re the only ones on the whole slate where road teams are favored by more than 18 points. There are also only a total of six games on the docket right now that feature double digit road favorites, though there are teams like the Texas A&M Aggies, Miami Hurricanes, and Fresno State Bulldogs who will all open up as double digit chalks in all likelihood on the Week 5 NCAA football betting lines.

Last week, the Top 25 teams were favored by an average of 19 points per game, and a ton of them were laying 30 and 40 points and successfully covering in doing so. This time around, there are a slew of Top 25 teams that have to go on the road, many of which are in very dangerous situations.

The UCF Knights are looking to win what might be the biggest game in their history when they host the South Carolina Gamecocks at Bright House Networks Stadium. In spite of the fact that UCF isn’t a Top 25 team at this point, it is still a club that is getting a lot of respect from the oddsmakers. The Gamecocks are only +7.5 and are already dropping as the week starts off, and we are very aware that this could be a game where a Top 15 team in the land is on upset alert. The #14 Oklahoma Sooners could also be in some trouble when they hit the road to take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, who have failed to cover two straight games here in South Bend. The boys from Norman are expected to win and are -3 in this one, but we know that this is a game that really could end up going either way.

But of course, when you’re talking about the games of the day, there is no doubt that there are two games that everyone is going to be talking about. In the evening, the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Wisconsin Badgers are going to have at it in the Big Ten Leaders Division. Most essentially figure that this is the Leaders Division title game at this point, and with the Penn State Nittany Lions ineligible for the postseason, there is no doubt that the winner of this game is heading to Detroit for the conference title game barring an epic collapse with multiple losses. Ohio State still might not have QB Braxton Miller, who has been battling a knee injury, but the oddsmakers obviously have the confidence that this team is no worse with QB Kenny Guiton calling the shots if that’s what it comes to. We have to think that Miller is going to be back under center for the biggest game of the year in what might be one of the few games separating OSU from a trip to the National Championship Game. The Buckeyes are -7.5 on the opening college football Vegas odds.

The other game of course, is the big one out of the SEC. The LSU Tigers are going on the road to take on the Georgia Bulldogs, and there is no doubt that this is a personal game. QB Zach Mettenberger was kicked out of Athens early in his collegiate career, and he found a home here in the Bayou. LSU has taken a meteoric rise through the rankings over the course of the first four weeks of the season, and it is a team that many think can win this one “Between the Hedges.” It’s a game that could be dangerous for the Dawgs, who can’t afford another loss if they think they are going to contend for the National Championship, but it is every bit as big of a game for LSU, a team that many think could win the whole enchilada this year. LSU is getting 3.5 at the open, but the college football betting lines in this one are going to be flying all over the place.

SportsBetting.ag FootballThese aren’t the only really important games of the day by any stretch of the imagination. The Alabama Crimson Tide aren’t expected to be tested until the Bayou Bengals come to Tuscaloosa, but they had better not overlook the Ole Miss Rebels. The Rebs are hungry and they have already proven that they can go on the road and win some games this year. Ole Miss is getting 17, and many think that this could be a game very similar to last season’s game against QB Johnny Manziel and the Texas A&M Aggies. QB Bo Wallace could be a dark horse Heisman Trophy candidate, and if he can pull off the upset in this one, you can bet that you’ll be hearing many talk about him throughout the weeks to come.

Over in the Pac-12, the Stanford Cardinal are -10 on the road against the Washington State Cougars in an important game, while the Arizona Wildcats are getting a touchdown on the road in Seattle against the Washington Huskies.

The lowest ‘total’ of the week is right off of the bat on Thursday night between G-Tech and V-Tech. The number of 43 is almost as low as any number that we have seen all season long. However, on the flip side of that, Oregon and Cal are featuring an 84 on the board right now, and that’s the highest ‘total’ that we have ever seen in a game.
