ATHENS, Ga. – With four ranked matchups on the schedule for Week 5 of the college football season, betting value can be found on many of the best teams in the country. Which odds are the best to take this weekend?
No. 2 Georgia Bulldogs Vs. No. 8 Arkansas Razorbacks
The Arkansas Razorbacks have beaten Texas A&M and Texas but remain large underdogs to the Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday night. Regulated sports betting sites favor Georgia by three possessions.
Georgia Vs. Arkansas Spread Odds
- Georgia Bulldogs -18.0 -110
- Arkansas Razorbacks +18.0 -110
The Bulldogs have only played one real respectable opponent this season in Clemson and even that is turning out to not look like that good of a win. Arkansas has the more impressive resume and probably the better offense. It may come down to just how dominant the Bulldog’s defense can be.
This game has a 12:00 p.m. EST kickoff on Saturday and can be viewed on ESPN.
No. 9 Notre Dame Fighting Irish Vs. No. 7 Cincinnati Bearcats
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish find themselves as home underdogs to the Cincinnati Bearcats. They are coming off of a big win over Wisconsin, but are not getting the respect from sportsbooks when it comes to betting lines.
Notre Dame Vs. Cincinnati Moneyline Odds
- Notre Dame Fighting Irish +105
- Cincinnati Bearcats -125
Those betting on college football can potentially get an easy underdog win in this matchup if the Fighting Irish plays at a similar level the way they did against the Badgers. It should be noted that the Bearcats are coming off of a BYE week, giving them an extra week of preparation for this game.
NBC will have coverage of the match beginning at 2:30 p.m. EST on Saturday.
No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide Vs. No 12. Ole Miss Rebels
The two Heisman favorites will meet one another as the Alabama Crimson Tide take on the Ole Miss Rebels on Saturday. Matt Corral currently holds the betting advantage over Bryce Young, but that’s all subject to change after this weekend.
Alabama Vs. Ole Miss Spread Odds
- Alabama Crimson Tide -14.5 -110
- Ole Miss Rebels +14.5 -110
The Crimson Tide have looked like the most impressive team this season with two ranked wins and an average score of 46.5-17.5. Ole Miss has looked good but hasn’t played a ranked opponent or even a conference game. Seeing Alabama for their first real test of the season could spell trouble for the Rebels.
The game has a 3:30 p.m. EST scheduled start time and can be watched on CBS.
No. 21 Baylor Bears Vs. No. 19 Oklahoma State Cowboys
Two newly ranked Big 12 teams will play one another when the Baylor Bears take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys. Online sportsbooks are giving Oklahoma State the advantage.
Oklahoma State Vs. Baylor Spread Odds
- Oklahoma State Cowboys -3.5 -110
- Baylor Bears +3.5 -110
The biggest indicator of this game’s winner may be the total. With a total set at 47.5 points, oddsmakers seem to believe that the defense will have a big impact on the field. Both teams allow fewer than 20 points per game, but Baylor has proven to have the more high-powered offense.
Not only could Baylor win this game as a (+150) underdog, but if they do have success, the total will likely hit the OVER.
ESPN2 will have coverage of the game beginning at 7:00 p.m. EST on Saturday.
