Pittsburgh vs Syracuse Pick

The Big East will be on display on Friday night at the Carrier Dome, where the NCAA football odds will be contested between the Syracuse Orange and the Pittsburgh Panthers.

Have the Panthers righted the ship? That’s the biggest question right now in Steeltown, and it is certainly one that is up for debate. Pittsburgh has won its last two games, but there is a real question as to whether those wins against Gardner Webb and Virginia Tech were really good enough to get this team going for the rest of the campaign.

USC vs Utah Pick

Week 6 of the college football betting season starts on Thursday night, and the showcase game of a big time three-pack pits the Southern Cal Trojans against the Utah Utes at Rice Eccles Stadium.

With names like QB Matt Barkley, RB Silas Redd, RB Curtis McNeal, WR Marqise Lee, and WR Robert Woods, the Trojans really shouldn’t be struggling offensively at all.

Oregon vs. Washington State Picks

The newly anointed No. 2 team in the country will engage in NCAA football betting action in the final kickoff of the night on Saturday, when the Oregon Ducks battle the Washington State Cougars.

The Ducks are flying all over the field, but it was their defense that made headlines last week when they shut out the Arizona Wildcats 49-0. It was one of the most impressive displays that any team has come up with this year, though both the Cats and the Ducks know that there should have been a heck of a lot more on the board in terms of points.

Wisconsin vs Nebraska Pick

Big Ten foes that very well could be playing in the conference title game this year will meet for the second time ever and the first in Lincoln on Saturday night, where the Nebraska Cornhuskers will take on the Wisconsin Badgers.

The truth of the matter is that the season starts right now for the Badgers. All that we learned in the first month of the year about Wisky is that it just isn’t all that great.

Texas vs Oklahoma State Pick

The early advantage in the Big XII will be handed out on Saturday night at Boone Pickens Stadium, where the college football odds will be contested between the Oklahoma State Cowboys and the Texas Longhorns.

The Horns have been awesome all year long, but this is really going to be their first massive test. Head Coach Mack Brown will be quick to point out the fact that the Ole Miss Rebels team that his squad blew out two weeks ago is a 3-1 team and the Wyoming Cowboys that his team beat to start the year did win eight games in 2011.

Hawaii vs. BYU Picks

Teams that have the ability to score points in bunches are going to be duking it out on Friday night in NCAA football betting action, as the BYU Cougars take on the Hawaii Warriors at Lavell Edwards Stadium.

The Warriors have had a frustrating season, and matters just don’t seem to be getting any better any time in the near future. They aren’t nearly the offense juggernauts that they once were, and they are still struggling defensively.

NCAA Football Betting: College Football Matchups for Week 5

Here at Bang the Book, we have all of the top matchups of the 2012 NCAA football betting campaign covered! Today, we’re taking a look at the best matchups for Week 5!


Head Coach Hugh Freeze is one of the up and coming coaches in college football, and he would love to put together a great effort here in Tuscaloosa to bring some notoriety to his Ole Miss program. That being said, this is still going to be a huge mountain to climb, knowing that Alabama hasn’t let its foot off of the gas pedal against either of the big time foes that it has faced this year.

Stanford vs Washington Pick

The Stanford Cardinal will be back on the field for the first time since upsetting the USC Trojans on Thursday night in NCAA football betting action when they take on the Washington Huskies at CenturyLink Field.

The Cardinal are ranked in the Top 10 in the country, but there aren’t many that really believe that they are amongst one of the best 10 teams in the land. The truth of the matter is that the Pac-12 is pretty solid this year, but outside of the Oregon Ducks, there might not be any truly superior teams, and that includes USC.

Arizona @ Oregon College Football Pick

Two of the top teams in the Pac-12 this year meet in college football betting action on Saturday night at Autzen Stadium, where the Oregon Ducks take on the Arizona Wildcats.

Arizona hasn’t exactly come out of nowhere this year, but it is really a surprise that the team is 3-0 this year. Of course, the Wildcats have only won one game that they were really supposed to lose, that being the game against the Oklahoma State Cowboys, and aside from that, there hasn’t been all that much to talk about.

Vanderbilt @ Georgia College Football Pick

Sanford Stadium will be the site of a Week 4 college football betting showdown between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Vanderbilt Commodores, which will be shown on the Deuce.

The Dores have just one win so far this year, and one look further down their schedule suggests that they are going to have a heck of a time just getting to a bowl game once again. A game like this would have to be won from time to time to even think about playing in the postseason, and it just might not happen that way.
