Cyclones roll over ULM

The Iowa State football team is coming off a 72-20 win over Louisiana-Monroe at home last weekend. The Cyclones are 2-1 on the season, 2-1 against the spread and 2-1 with the over.

Iowa State is putting up a lot of yards this year, as the Cyclones are averaging 39.3 points and 531.7 yards per contest on offense. Defensively, ISU is giving up 21.3 points and 333.3 yards per contest. Brock Purdy has thrown for 989 yards and six touchdowns to lead the team this year while also rushing for 98 yards and three scores. Leading rusher Kene Nwangwu has 106 yards in 2019, but he is questionable to play this weekend with a hamstring injury. Tarique Milton is the leading receiver with 13 catches for 304 yards and two touchdowns. The defense is being led by O’Rien Vance, who has 17 tackles and 3.5 sacks.

Baylor off to strong start

The Baylor Bears are off to a 3-0 start to the season following a 21-13 win at Rice last weekend. Baylor is 1-2 against the spread and 2-1 with the over through the first three games of the year.

Baylor is putting up 46.7 points and 497 yards per game on offense in 2019, while the defense is giving up just 14.7 points and 261.7 yards per game. Charlie Brewer has been leading the team with 665 yards passing and seven touchdowns. Denzel Mims has been his leading target with 18 catches for 249 yards and three scores. Baylor has three backs with over 115 rushing yards. John Lovett is leading the way with 186 yards and a score. Clay Johnston is leading the defense with 24 tackles and 1.5 sacks.

College Football Betting Trends

Iowa State

Iowa State has hit the under in 10 of its last 11 road games and in 13 of its last 16 games following a win.


The Bears have hit the under in four straight Big 12 games, but are 20-8 with the over in their last 28 home games against a winning team.


These two have hit the under in three of their last four meetings. While Iowa State put up big offense last week, the Cyclones struggled a great deal at home against Iowa. The Cyclones are hitting the road for the first time and playing a defense that has had some success this year, so look for ISU to struggle to score. Baylor is likely to run into problems with the Iowa State defense, which hasn’t allowed more than 20 points in regulation this season. Baylor isn’t the offense it was years ago, so look for this game to be a real defensive battle.

College Football Week 5 Prediction: Iowa State/Baylor Under 56.5
