If you’re ready for some top NCAA football ATS picks for Week 5 of the 2016 college football season, then you’re in luck!
Thanks to the trio of Week 5 expert picks that you’re about to get, you’re going to have a fantastic chance to cash in not once or twice, but a whopping three times. Okay, with that said, let’s get started.
In Depth Analysis On The Trio Of Week 5 College Football ATS Winning Predictions
Baylor Bears (4-0) at Iowa State Cyclones (1-3)
When: Saturday, October 1, 2016 at 12:00 PM
Where: Jack Trice Stadium
NCAAF Odds: Iowa State Cyclones +16.5
Analysis: It’s all nice and everything that Iowa State Cyclones got a rare win last weekend, but make no mistake about it, the Cyclones are going down and going down hard in this Week 5 matchup. Baylor Bears is far superior on both sides of the ball and should be able to make an ATS win stand up against an Iowa State team that has issues all over the place.
I know the Bears are 0-4 ATS in their last four games against a team with a losing record and just 1-4-1 ATS in their last six road games against Iowa State, but these two teams really aren’t close in talent level or on-field performances. Baylor has scored an insane 165 points in the last three meetings against the Cyclones and should be able to approach the 50-point plateau once again in this meeting.
My Pick: Baylor 42 Iowa State 21
Oregon Ducks (2-2) at Washington State Cougars (1-2)
When: Saturday, October 1, 2016 at 3:33 PM
Where: Martin Stadium
TV: Pac-12 Network
NCAAF Odds: Washington State Cougars +1
Analysis: I know Oregon can score the ball with the best teams in the nation, but the Ducks are clearly missing something this season on both sides of the ball, making the Washington State Cougars the pick to get the outright home win and accompanying ATS cover.
While Oregon has gone 0-4-1 ATS in its last five games, the Cougars are 8-4 SU in its last 12 games and an incendiary 11-2 ATS in their last 13 games. Expect points aplenty on this contest, but Washington State wins outright.
My Pick: Washington State 35 Oregon 31
Wisconsin Badgers (4-0) at Michigan Wolverines (4-0)
When: Saturday, October 1, 2016 at 3:30 PM
Where: Michigan Stadium
NCAAF Odds: Michigan Wolverines -10.5
Analysis: I know Michigan is playing at home and has an elite defense, but the fact of the matter is that, on paper, the Wolverines aren’t actually better than their Big ten rivals in this contest. I love the way Wisconsin is playing defense this season and the way that quarterback Alex Hornibrook has taken control of the offense the last two games.
The Badgers are 4-1 ATS in their L/5 games against a team with a winning record and 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall. More importantly, the Badgers are 3-1-1 ATS in their last five road games against Michigan and 7-1-1 ATS in their last nine meetings against the Wolverines overall. Not only do the Badgers cover the college football betting line, but they do so by winning outright!
My Pick: Wisconsin 24 Michigan 21
