College Football Week 5 Line Movements
As we approach kick off for the early games in Week 5 of the college football season, what have been the biggest line movements for Saturday's games?
Oregon at. Colorado, 10:00PM ET
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Ducks opened as a 10.5-point road favorite before the line dropped all the way down to 7 despite 84% of public bettors backing Oregon. The total has also moved from 71.5 down to 69.5.
Baylor at. Texas Tech, 3:30PM ET
The Red Raiders are coming off an emotional roller coaster loss to TCU and after opening as 14-point underdogs, Tech is now a 17-point home dog versus Baylor today. Red Raiders quarterback Patrick Mahomes was banged up in the loss to the Horned Frogs but stayed in the game despite being limited as a runner. He's expected to play against the Bears today but make sure to monitor his status leading up to game time.
Ohio State at. Indiana, 3:30PM ET
The Buckeyes haven't covered a spread since their season-0pening victory in Blacksburg but the line for their game today against the Hoosiers has gone from 19.5 up to 22.5. According to our public betting charts, 66% of the action is on Ohio State for this game so perhaps bettors are assuming that the Buckeyes are finally ready to blow an opponent out to the point where they cash at the betting window.
