We have already reached week 5 of the college football season and there are some big games set to take place this weekend. Most of the non-conference action is now over and there are some big conference battles on the schedule.

Betting on the game total is one good betting option and there are some great options out there. Here are the five best college football week 5 over/under picks. Learn what an over/under bet is in our betting guide.

Illinois Fighting Illini at Wisconsin Badgers

Illinois vs. Wisconsin Prediction

Best Bet: Under 44 Points

Big Ten Conference rivals meet up on Saturday when the Wisconsin Badgers host the Illinois Fighting Illini. This league is pretty competitive after Ohio State and this could be a game that goes down to the wire.

Illinois just shut out their week 4 opponent and the Fighting Illini has a defense that has been dominant. Wisconsin is always a program that wants to run the football and that ends up taking plenty of time off of the clock.

Take the under 44 points in this game, as it’s a defensive battle.

Kentucky Wildcats at Ole Miss Rebels

Kentucky vs. Ole Miss Prediction

Best Bet: Under 55 Points

The Kentucky Wildcats have turned into an explosive offensive team and Ole Miss is the exact same way. The Alabama Crimson Tide continue to be the best team in the SEC, but the entire conference is loaded with solid teams.

It’s going to take some big defensive stops to come away with a win in this one and neither team will be looking to take big risks. Bet on the under in this match-up between SEC rivals.

Rutgers Scarlet Knights at Ohio State Buckeyes

Rutgers vs. Ohio State Prediction

Best Bet: Over 59.5 Points

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights head to Columbus, Ohio, to take on the mighty Buckeyes in Big Ten Conference action. The spread for this game is large and the over/under lines are set pretty high as well.

Ohio State is likely going to score at least 45 points in this game and then it will be all up to the production of Rutgers. For as good as the Buckeyes have been, they are also a team that gives up some points at times.

Look for this point total to get into the 60s, as there will be plenty of points scored in this one.

Alabama Crimson Tide at Arkansas Razorbacks

Alabama vs. Arkansas Prediction

Best Bet: Under 61 Points

The Alabama Crimson Tide continue to blow teams out in the SEC, as they look to get back to the College Football Playoff. Alabama does have a tough test ahead of them in week 5, as the Arkansas Razorbacks are a good team.

The over/under is at 61.0 points for this game, but it doesn’t take into account how good these teams can be on defense. Alabama can score points in a hurry, but head coach Nick Saban is also going to want his team to get stops.

Take the under 61 points in this huge SEC match-up.

Arizona State Sun Devils at USC Trojans

Arizona State vs. USC Prediction

Best Bet: Over 61.5 Points

The Pac-12 Conference race looks like it is USC’s to lose, but the Trojans nearly blew it in week 4. Now USC will be back at home this weekend to take on an Arizona State Sun Devils squad that is a bit overmatched.

The over/under for this NCAAF game is relatively high, especially since Arizona State might not do a ton of scoring in this one. USC should have a big day on offense, though and the Trojans will help push this point total to over 61.5 points.
