Week 5 college football odds, betting lines, TV: LSU, SEC, state schools, Top 25 games

After a fantastic third quarter, LSU allowed Mississippi State back into the game last Saturday. And while the Tigers covered (thanks to that half-point hook), the Bulldogs covered all the in-game live lines.

So what does that mean for this week?

One would think the LSU-Auburn game would be in the ballpark of a pick ’em, but that’s not the way the lines makers see it. So which LSU team will we see this week, and it is tough to predict, considering as of Monday afternoon we don’t even know who will be playing quarterback for Auburn.

Will it be Bo Nix, or it will be LSU transfer and Ponchatoula alum TJ Finley, who likely would love to get a chance against his old team.

As far as the rest of the SEC, the big game is Ole Miss at Alabama. The over/under is incredibly high, so we know Vegas expects a shootout. And why not? The Rebels have been able to score at will, and it will be interesting to see if they can continue that against the No. 1 Crimson Tide.

Also, No. 2 Georgia hosts No. 8 Arkansas in an early game.

(Note: Lines are from Caesars Sportsbook, as of Monday afternoon. Odds for games involving FCS teams won’t be released until later in the week. All games are Saturday, Oct. 2 unless otherwise noted.)
