I love it when a plan comes together. Four of our college football picks from last week's 5-pack cashed in; the only blemish was Kent State (+44) failing to cover against Alabama in a 48-0 loss. Consarnit. Let's jump right into Week 5 and see if we can keep this money train rolling.


Stanford Cardinal vs Washington Huskies (–3.5)

Friday 9:00 p.m. ET, ESPN

It's a battle of undefeated Pac-12 teams, but the Cardinal (3-0 SU and ATS) are also undefeated at the bank, while the Huskies (4-0 SU, 2-2 ATS) needed overtime last week to squeeze past Arizona as 16-point road faves.

Free NCAAF Pick: Stanford +3.5
Best Line Offered: at BetDSI

Florida Gators vs Vanderbilt Commodores (+10)

Saturday 12:00 p.m. ET, SECN

Florida (3-1 SU, 1-3 ATS) hasn't had much success at the pay window; however, the Dores (2-2 SU and ATS) are completely outmatched here, sitting at No. 92 on the F/+ efficiency charts at Football Outsiders. Florida is No. 27.

Free NCAAF Pick: Florida –10
Best Line Offered: at Bovada

Tennessee Volunteers vs Georgia Bulldogs (+3)

Saturday 3:30 p.m. ET, CBS

Good work by the Vols (4-0 SU, 2-2 ATS) to beat Florida last week, 38-28 as 4-point home faves. But this pick is more about fading the Bulldogs (3-1 SU, 1-3 ATS), who got flattened by Ole Miss and are lacking in all facets of the game compared to Tennessee.

Free NCAAF Pick: Tennessee –3 (–115)
Best Line Offered: at 5Dimes

Northern Illinois Huskies vs Ball State Cardinals (–4)

Saturday 3:30 p.m. ET 

Here's the best mid-major pick on the NCAAF odds board: Ball State is 3-1 SU and 4-0 ATS, while Northern Illinois is 0-4 SU and ATS. Stretching back to 2015, the Huskies have dropped each of their last seven, both straight-up and against the number.

Free NCAAF Pick: Ball State –4
Best Line Offered: at Heritage

Texas A&M Aggies vs South Carolina Gamecocks (+17.5)

Saturday 4:00 p.m. ET, SECN

There's something very wrong with the Gamecocks (2-2 SU and ATS). They're No. 83 on the F/+ charts, one spot behind Ball State. The Aggies (4-0 SU and ATS) are seventh in efficiency, and they've got a better offense this year with QB Trevor Knight and RB Trayveon Williams.

Free NCAAF Pick: Texas A&M –17.5
Best Line Offered: at BetOnline

[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3027602, "sportsbooksIds":[1096,93,169,19], "LineTypeId":1, "PeriodTypeId":1 }[/]

Record: 9-7-1 ATS
