The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / College Football Week 5 2021 Beating the Spread

College Football Week 5 2021 Beating the Spread

Publish Date: 10/07/2021
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa
MANHATTAN, KS - OCTOBER 02: Quarterback Spencer Rattler #7 talks with running back Kennedy Brooks #26 and tight end Jeremiah Hall #27 of the Oklahoma Sooners,during the second half against the Kansas State Wildcats at Bill Snyder Family Football Stadium on October 2, 2021 in Manhattan, Kansas.

8-4 last week, not too bad. Overall for the year against the spread, 34-20!

Temple at No. 5 Cincinnati (-28.5) (7 p.m., ESPN)

The Bearcats are on a short week after maybe the biggest win in school history. Temple beat Memphis last week and will cover this spread, but the Bearcats will win comfortably. Pick Temple +28.5

No. 6 Oklahoma (-5.5) vs. Texas (noon, ABC)

It’s rivalry time down south! Oklahoma has disappointed this year, barely squeaking by in games. They are 0-4 ATS so far this season, but those were all double-digit spreads. Pick Texas +5.5

Maryland at No. 7 Ohio State (-20.5) (noon, FOX)

Maryland showed last week they are not quite ready for games like this. On the other hand, Ohio State is starting to roll, and they will cover this spread easily. Pick Ohio State -20.5

No. 11 Michigan State (-6.5) at Rutgers (noon, BTN)

Rutgers is coming off back-to-back losses, and Michigan State has been rolling along behind the ground game of Kenneth Walker III. The Spartans will win the game and cover the spread. Pick Michigan State -6.5

No. 13 Arkansas at No. 17 Ole Miss (-6.5) (noon, ESPN)

These are two teams that got beaten back to reality last week. I look for this game to turn into an old-fashioned shootout. Pick Arkansas +6.5

Boise State at No. 10 BYU (-2.5) (3:30 p.m., ABC)

The difference in this game will be the running game of the cougars, and it will carry them to the victory. Pick BYU -2,5

No. 2 Georgia (-14.5) at No. 18 Auburn (3:30 p.m., ESPN)

The Bulldogs should be ranked number one as they are playing at an entirely different level than everyone else right now. Pick Georgia -14.5

No. 4 Penn State at No. 3 Iowa (-2.5) (4 p.m., FOX)

This will be the game of the year up until this point, and these teams are very evenly matched. Penn State has won the last three games at Kinnick stadium. I think the advantage here could be Sean Clifford as the Nittany Lions pull the minor upset. Pick Penn State +2.5

No. 9 Michigan (-3.5) at Nebraska (7:30 p.m., ABC)

I am still not buying the Michigan hype=train yet. The Wolverines, except for last week, have been in the pleasant confines of their home field. Nebraska has been maybe the most improved team since the start of the season. I think Michigan wins by a Touchdown and covers. Pick Michigan -3.5

No. 14 Notre Dame at Virginia Tech (-0.5) (7:30 p.m., ACC Network)

The Irish fell last week, and now they have to travel to Blacksburg to face a good Hokies team. I like the Irish to get it done, but this will be a tight battle. Pick Notre Dame -0.5

LSU at No. 16 Kentucky (-3.5) (7:30 p.m., SEC Network)

This could be a trap game for the Wildcats coming off an emotional win against Florida. But even if that’s true, the LSU run game is so bad I think Kentucky rolls on. Pick Kentucky -3.5

No. 1 Alabama (-17.5) at Texas A&M (8 p.m., CBS)

The Aggies have failed to live up to expectations, losing three straight games. Bama is just too good and takes this game in a rout. Pick Alabama -17.5
