CFB Props Week 5

Last Updated: Sep 29, 2023

It’s Week 5 of the college football season, and more conference games are being played.

We went 3-1 on our prop bets last week, with Oregon’s team total of Over 45.5 points coming up short despite looking like it was on track to hit.

Following a successful week of prop betting, there will be more thrilling action across the college football landscape.

Here are our best game props and player props in Week 5.

CFB Week 5 Best Props

Washington: Over 43.5 (-115)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

Is there a team that could slow down this Washington offense right now? With lefty Michael Penix Jr. dissecting defenses from under center, the Huskies are averaging 49.8 points per game (third-most in the nation) this season. Penix Jr. is one of the top favorites in the latest Heisman Trophy odds.

While Arizona is allowing only 16 points per game and is a much better team than last season, the Wildcats are giving up chunk plays through the air.

Entering Week 5, Arizona is allowing 13.09 yards per completion and has zero interceptions on the defensive side of the ball.

Moving the ball shouldn’t be an issue for a Washington team that is completing 74 percent of its passing attempts (10th in the nation) for 16.54 yards per completion (eighth-most in the nation).

It also helps that the Huskies are converting on 91 percent of their red-zone trips this season, making this one of our best CFB prop bets in Week 5.

Kansas: Over 21.5 (-115)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

In last season’s meeting between Texas and Kansas, the Longhorns went on the road and crushed the Jayhawks 55-14.

This season’s Kansas team will want to return the favor by upsetting a top-ranked Texas program in front of its home fans.

The Jayhawks are 4-0 to begin the season, and they have the ingredients to make this a game against the Longhorns.

Even with Texas allowing a mere 12.5 points per game, Kansas is registering 37.8 points per game (26th-most in the nation) on the offensive side of the ball.

One area that should help the Jayhawks is they are leading all of college football in third-down conversion rate (60.5 percent).

We could get an offensive game in Texas on Saturday, and we only need Kansas to score 15 fewer points than they are averaging this season to hit the Over.

CFB Week 5 Player Props

Rome Odunze: Over 103.5 Receiving Yards (-115)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

As mentioned above, Washington’s aerial attack has been lethal to begin the season. And whenever Penix is airing the ball, most of the passes are going in the direction of Rome Odunze or Jalen McMillan.

Odunze’s receiving yards number is high for Saturday’s matchup, but Arizona’s defense is giving up chunk plays against the pass.

The standout pass catcher has also tallied at least 107 receiving yards in each of his first four games this season.

The volume is also there for Odunze, as he’s caught at least five passes in each of the first four games and is averaging 20.1 yards per reception.

With Washington’s dynamic passing game, Odunze only needs five or six catches to hit his Over of 103.5 yards.

Even though Arizona is allowing 219.2 passing yards per game, Washington’s offense is logging an average of 467.2 passing yards per game. A decent percentage of those yards are always going to be contributed by Odunze.

Cody Schrader: Over 77.5 Rushing Yards (-115)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

Don’t look now, but Missouri is 4-0 through the first four weeks of the season.

The Tigers have a well-balanced offense, and they’ve shown they are capable of pounding the rock with Cody Schrader leading the way.

Missouri is tallying 152 rushing yards per game this season, and Schrader has 403 yards on 65 attempts.

Meanwhile, Vanderbilt’s defense is surrendering 150 rushing yards per game in its first five games.

To add to that, Schrader has three games this season in which he’s notched 84-plus rushing yards.

Schrader received at least 14 attempts in all three of those games, and the lone game he saw fewer than 14 attempts he had 58 yards.

With Missouri being double-digit favorites against Vanderbilt, Schrader should get at least 14 attempts and scamper for 78-plus rushing yards.
