  • According to our college football betting model predictions, Saturday's Week 5 college football slate is loaded with big edges.
  • Most bettors focus on the day's biggest games, but don't forget that winning bets on smaller matchups pay just the same.
  • Because of this, sharp bettors are all over Saturday night's Arizona State vs. UCLA matchup.

College football’s Week 5 Saturday slate is loaded with big-time matchups, including No. 8 Arkansas vs. No. 2 Georgia, No. 7 Cincinnati vs. No. 9 Notre Dame and No 12. Ole Miss vs. No. 1 Alabama.

In a somewhat unusual scheduling twist, all three of those games will kick off between noon ET and 3:30 p.m. ET, giving fans an action-packed afternoon of high-profile contests.

And in very unsurprising news, these are currently the most heavily bet games, in terms of the number of tickets, of college football’s entire Week 5 schedule.

Bettors will undoubtedly be keying in on these matchups, but let’s not forget about the rest of Saturday’s slate, which is littered with solid values from start to finish.
