Top Week 5 college football expert predictions
One of Sallee’s top college football picks for Week 5: He’s going Under 45.5 in the SEC West matchup between No. 17 Texas A&M and Mississippi State at 4 p.m. ET on Saturday.
The Aggies are giving up just 11.8 points per game this season. Mississippi State is giving up 21.3, but its task got a little easier this week with Texas A&M losing star wide receiver Ainias Smith (leg) for the season. Sallee expects the Bulldogs to focus on stopping the A&M run game, which should keep this score low.
“Bulldogs defensive coordinator Zach Arnett isn’t going to be intimidated by anything he sees on tape from the Aggies this week, especially since the Aggies will be without Smith,” Sallee told SportsLine. “The game plan for Mississippi State is simple … stop Devon Achane and stop the Aggies.” See what else Sallee likes at SportsLine.
