College Football Picks: Week 5


We got back into the winners circle last week here on the college football picks, going 2-1 and cashing our biggest play. That brings our YTD record to 8-3-1, let’s go off the radar hunting this week in a very thin card.

BYU @ Toledo

Line: BYU -2 O/U 60.5

The Cougars have played an absolutely brutal schedule so far. The rivalry game versus Utah to start the year, back to back double overtime games against Tennessee and USC, and then they got physically beat down at Washington last week. Now a weird noon trip into the Glass Bowl versus Toledo? Give me the Rockets high flying offense and the home dog here.

Pick: Toledo +2 .5u

Hawaii @ Nevada

Line: Nevada -2.5 O/U 65

The Rainbow Warriors have really impressed me so far this year, but I always like to fade Hawaii on the road. Just some trends to back it up, Hawaii is 2-10-1 ATS their last 13 road games, 2-7 ATS last 9 against Neveda, and 1-6 ATS last 7 in Nevada. I’ll ride the trends and take the Wolfpack as a small home favorite.

Pick: Nevada -2.5 .5u

Colorado St. @ Utah St.

Line: Utah St. -24.5 O/U 71.5

Give me a good ole fashion Mountain West shootout in this one! Both team have Top 10 offenses and the Rams defense couldn’t stop a nose bleed. The Rams offense however can light up the scoreboard, even against a stout Utah St defense I think they score enough to push this one over.

Pick: Over 71.5 .5u

Last Week: 2-1 +1u

YTD: 8-3-1 +3u

Let’s hope going off the radar with the college football picks pays off for us this week! Stop over to Overtime Heroics Forums and give us your thoughts and feedback! You can follow me @SteelCurtainPeh on Twitter and as always tail or fade; best of luck this weekend!
