College Football Week 5 Film Breakdown: Texas A&M-Alabama, Oklahoma-Iowa St., Auburn-Georgia

As we get deeper into Week 5, there’s more film to identify matchups and places where you can beat the line. How can you convert football strategy to in-game betting success?

It’s the second weekend for the SEC, and a pair of disappointing Big XII teams so far matchup in our game film breakdown of what to watch for in Week 5 of the college football season.

The Texas A&M Aggies head to Tuscaloosa as a big underdog, facing an Alabama Crimson Tide defense under Nick Saban defense that always shows different looks and flies to the ball. Will the slower pace of Jimbo Fisher’s offense and TAMU help under bettors?

The Oklahoma Sooners were stunned by Kansas State last week, and the Iowa State Cyclones got their doors blown at home by Louisiana just a couple weeks ago. Was this a blip for Oklahoma, or are they really in trouble long-term with Spencer Rattler at quarterback?

In not much of a surprise, the Auburn Tigers got by Kentucky last week, but now head to Athens and face Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs, who sport one of the best defenses in America. Will they be able to move the ball in this rivalry game?

Here are the current odds for the games we break down from DraftKings Sportsbook:

Texas A&M vs. Alabama: Alabama -17.5, total 52.5

Oklahoma vs. Iowa State: Oklahoma -7, total 63.5

Auburn vs. Georgia: Georgia -6.5, total 45
