NCAA football line moves for Week 5

Most of the NCAA football lines moves have been modest, but a couple big shifts did stand out from the pack. Check out all the college football odds for the week here.

The largest line move this week was in the Texas A&M at Alabama matchup. At the beginning of the week Alabama opened as a 9.5-point favorite. Check in on that game now and you’ll find Alabama listed as an 18-point favorite. That’s an 8.5-point swing.

Undoubtedly, bettors have been tossing money at Alabama forcing the oddsmakers to inflate the line. Bettors will want to be cautious with the new line. Alabama is 6-5 against the spread when favored by 9.5 points, compared to 0-4 ATS when favored by 18 points.

Other big NCAA football line moves?

The other big standout line move this week was in the South Florida at Cincinnati matchup. When the line was originally set for this game Cincinnati was a 14-point favorite. The current odds have them listed as a 22-point favorite. That’s an 8-point swing. In their last 12 games when favored by 20-25 points Cincinnati is 9-0 straight up, but only 2-7 ATS.

After Alabama and Cincinnati the size of the line movements drops considerably. The only other games that saw the line move by more than 2.5 points were Oklahoma at Iowa State and Tulsa and Central Florida.

Oklahoma began the week as 10.5-point favorites but have since dropped to a 7-point chalk, a 3.5-point drop. It shouldn’t be a big surprise that bettors are losing faith in Oklahoma. Last week Oklahoma lost to Kansas State as a 27.5-point favorite and they’re 3-9 ATS in their last 12.

Central Florida started the week as an 18.5-point favorite against Tulsa and have since grown to a 21.5-point favorite.  Central Florida is 8-1 SU in their last nine games, but only 4-5 ATS. Tulsa is 7-2 ATS in their last nine as an underdog.

Two other games on this weekend’s scheduled have had the line move by more than 2 points. North Carolina at Boston College and LSU at Vanderbilt.

North Carolina opened as an 11.5-point road favorite and currently sit at -14. North Carolina has covered the spread in four straight.

LSU began the week as an 18.5-point road favorite and have grown to a 21-point favorite. Bettors have not been scared away from LSU’s 44-34 loss to Mississippi State last week as a 14.5-point favorite.
