2022 NCAA Football SU Betting Picks for the Best Week 5 Games

2022 NCAA Football SU Betting Picks for the Best Week 5 Games

As exciting as college football is on a weekly basis, you also cannot deny that it can be a truly cruel sport. One bad showing can destroy a season and make winning a National Championship all but impossible. If that is something you don’t believe, then take a poll of Oklahoma Sooners fans and ask them if they think they will win a championship this season after losing in Week 4 to Kansas State. Every team will have an off week or two, but as long as they still manage to come away with the win, the chances of ending the season as champion will still be there. We head into Week 5 with some big games set to go that will almost certainly have an impact on the rankings. We will have ATS and O/U picks for you, too, but for now, let’s make some SU College Football Betting picks for college football Week 5.

NCAAF Week 5 Straight-Up Betting Picks | 2022 College Football Analysis

UCLA Bruins over Washington Huskies

It has been a minute since we have seen a PAC 12 team in the playoffs, but could that change this year? Both the UCLA Bruins and Washington Huskies come into Week 5 with perfect records, so something has to give here. A 5-0 start does not guarantee anything, but the winner of this one is going to have a bit of a leg-up in the conference and in the hunt for a spot in the final four. It’s a huge game, and it may well be the home field advantage that makes the difference for the UCLA Bruins, who are in as a slight underdog here. Washington has routinely struggled when making this trip, winning just once in their last 9 visits to UCLA. I went back and forth on this one, but I am falling on the side of the Bruins.

Oklahoma State Cowboys over Baylor Bears

With Oklahoma losing this past weekend, the race for the Big 12 championship is now wide open. After a 3-0 start to the season, the Oklahoma State Cowboys are going to really fancy their chances of winning the Big 12, but this trip to Baylor, who have started the season at 3-1, is certainly not going to be an easy trip. Baylor has had the best of this matchup of late, winning 6 of the last 10, which may be why they are in as a slight favorite for this one. I am all about taking the underdog here, though, as this Cowboys offense is rolling in the early going. They have won each of their last 8 games in Week 5 and are 5-1 SU in their last 6 versus conference opponents.

Mississippi State Bulldogs over Texas A&M Aggies

We spoke earlier about the cruelty of this sport, which is something that Texas A&M got to experience firsthand with a loss to Appalachian State earlier this season. They have won both games since that loss, including a good win over Arkansas last weekend, but this is still not the start to the season we expected from them. The Bulldogs are also 3-1, with their lone loss coming at the hands of LSU. All the trends would seem to point to the Bulldogs coming up short here, but I am taking a bit of a risk and going with Mississippi State to win.
