Well folks, you know college football season is going wayyyyyy too fast when we're already getting set for Week 5 of the college football season.
And while it's sad that we're now five weeks in, the good is, we have some MEGA games. We have a Top 10 showdown between Arkansas-Georgia at noon ET, the same time Michigan faces its toughest game of the season at Wisconsin. Cincinnati-Notre Dame kicks off at 2:30 ET, while Ole Miss travels to Alabama for the 3:30 ET CBS game. Oh, and then the nightcap includes Auburn at LSU among other games.
So with that, let's get to the Week 5 spreads - with all the point spreads coming via DraftKings Sportsbook:
Virginia at Miami (-3) - O/U 61 (Thursday)
No. 5 Iowa (-4) at Maryland - O/U 46.5 (Friday)
No. 13 BYU (-9) at Utah State - O/U 59
No. 14 Michigan at Wisconsin (PK) - O/U 44
Texas (-4.5) at TCU - O/U 67
Duke at North Carolina (-18) - O/U 69.5
Pittsburgh (-3.5) at Georgia Tech - O/U 58
No. 8 Arkansas at No. 2 Georgia (-19) - O/U 49
Tennessee at Missouri (-3.5) - O/U 63
Mississippi State at No. 15 Texas A&M (-9.5) - O/U 47
Louisville at Wake Forest (-6.5) - O/U 60.5
USC (-7) at Colorado - O/U 50.5
No. 7 Cincinnati (-2) at No. 9 Notre Dame - O/U 50.5
No. 12 Ole Miss at No. 1 Alabama (-15.5) - O/U 76.5
Syracuse at Florida State (-4.5) - O/U 52
No. 3 Oregon (-7.5) at Stanford - O/U 59
No. 10 Florida (-8) at Kentucky - O/U 54.5
No. 6 Oklahoma (-10.5) at Kansas State O/U 53
Texas Tech at West Virginia (-7.5) - O/U 57
No. 21 Baylor at No. 19 Oklahoma State (-4) - O/U 49.5
Indiana at No. 4 Penn State (-11) - O/U 52
Northwestern at Nebraska (-10) - O/U 49
Boston College at No. 25 Clemson (-15.5) - O/U 47
UConn at Vanderbilt (-14) - O/U 50.5
No. 22 Auburn at LSU (-3.5) - O/U 53.5
Arizona State at No. 20 UCLA (-3.5) - O/U 55.5
I mean, among the most notable point spreads are arguably the two biggest games - Arkansas being nearly a three touchdown underdog at Georgia, and Ole Miss being over a two TD dog at Alabama is shocking.
Not saying either team should be favored, but that's an awful lot of points for each. Especially Ole Miss coming off a loss.
The other thing that jumps out is that Cincinnati is actually a slight favorite at Notre Dame. Part of that may be that we don't know the health of Jack Coan, but of importance, it feels like the oddsmakers aren't fully buying into the Irish as a legitimate contender.
Finally, a few other notes: The fact that USC is a touchdown road favorite against anyone in the Pac-12 - coming off two awful losses in three weeks - is shocking. Michigan-Wisconsin being a pick 'em is kind of shocking too, but maybe a testament to the fact that Michigan barely held on against Rutgers... while no one is really sure what Wisconsin is. Florida as more than a touchdown favorite at undefeated Kentucky is surprising too.
