Top Week 5 college football predictions
One of the top Week 5 college football picks the model is recommending: Texas (-13 at William Hill) gets the win and the cover at home in a noon ET kickoff against TCU on Saturday. The Longhorns survived in a 63-56 shootout against Texas Tech in Week 4. TCU, meanwhile, fell at home against Iowa State.
SportsLine’s model is calling for another big day for Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger. He accounts for over 300 total yards and three scores in the simulations. The Texas defense, however, performs better — giving up fewer than 20 points, according to the model. Texas gets the cover in well over 50 percent of simulations, making it a great choice for Week 5 college football bets.
Another one of the top Week 5 college football predictions from the model: The Missouri Tigers (+10) travel to Neyland Stadium and keep it within the spread in a noon ET kickoff on Saturday. Dating back to last year, the Vols have won seven straight games, marking the longest active winning streak for Power Five teams. The model is calling for Tennessee to win straight-up to keep that run alive, but it’ll be closer than oddsmakers expect.
Missouri quarterback Shawn Robinson, a transfer from TCU, got a tough test against Alabama last week. But Tennessee’s secondary should be more accommodating, and the projections show Robinson throwing for well over 200 yards. Mizzou running back Larry Rountree III is the leading rusher in the simulations with 62 yards. Missouri keeps this one within the spread in almost 70 percent of simulations.
