2022 NCAAF Week 5 Betting Predictions: Best Loser Picks

2022 NCAAF Week 5 Betting Predictions: Best Loser Picks

As we come into Week 5 of the college football season, the oddsmakers have given us their early lines for the week. In looking at this week’s slate of games, we’ve found some games that have caught our NCAA Football Betting eye. We’ve found some teams that are “sure losers”. Here they are!

Who Will Be the Big Losers In Week 5 of the 2022 College Football Season?

LSU @ Auburn (+7)

If it wasn’t for a late missed field goal by Missouri, Brian Harsin may not have still been an Auburn employee. Many were speculating that if Missouri beat Auburn, the Auburn administration would have made a change. We’ll never know, but since Harsin has taken over the Tigers program, they haven’t been very successful.

This week, they’ll welcome Brian Kelly and his Tigers to Jordan-Hare Stadium. Ever since TJ Finley took over for Bo Nix, the Auburn offense just hasn’t clicked. The Tigers are 3-1 on the season, but they’ve yet to really beat anyone. Penn State beat Auburn 41-12, and that’s when the rumors about Harsin started flying around. 

Even though LSU isn’t exactly lighting the world on fire, we think that they’re the more talented team, and that they’ll come into Auburn with something to prove. We’re going to choose Auburn as one of our “sure losers” this week.

Alabama (-15.5) @ Arkansas

After the Arkansas Razorbacks jumped all over Texas A&M early, many felt that the Razorbacks were showing how good they truly were. Well, things changed quickly, and the Aggies ended up beating Arkansas.

Sam Pittman has to be down about that loss, but he doesn’t have much time to sulk, as his Razorbacks host the #1 team in the country this week, in the Alabama Crimson Tide. Ever since their narrow victory over Texas in Week 2, the Tide has had two easy games against Louisiana-Monroe and Vanderbilt.

Mistakes cost Arkansas last week, and they can ill-afford to make those same kinds of mistakes against a team like Alabama. We’re banking on KJ Jefferson, and the offense playing much better this week.

We don’t say this very often, but the Alabama Crimson Tide are one of our “sure losers” this week. While we think they’ll leave Fayetteville with a victory, we think that it’s going to be a very close game. The raucous Arkansas crowd will make things difficult for Bryce Young and the Alabama offense. Alabama wins the game, but they won’t cover the spread.

Oklahoma (-4.5) @ Texas Christian University

Back in the day, a trip to TCU was one that teams didn’t want to make. Gary Patterson was one of the top defensive coaches in the country, and he always seemed to find a way to slow a powerful offense down. Well, those days are gone, and the Oklahoma Sooners are coming off of a bad loss at Kansas State.

While we know that TCU isn’t a bad team, we just have a feeling that Brent Venables’ squad is going to be fired up for this one. They know that last week’s loss could really cost them, and they need to make up for it.

TCU is going to be one of our “sure losers” this week, as the Sooners will come into Fort Worth and put a hurtin’ on the Horned Frogs.
