MINTY BETS: Well, welcome to Mad Bets everyone. We are doing an early preview on week five of college football. I will actually go first with my favorite bet on the board. I like Tennessee, minus 11 over Missouri. Now Missouri is 1-7 against the spread their last eight games.

They're working with a new head coach. So I can see some struggles here this season. So I think Tennessee can control this game and cover easily. And Jared, Mr. College Football, what's your pick for this week?

JARED QUAY: I don't know if I'm Mr. College Football because I feel like I'm Mr. NFL Undefeated. But I'll take college. I love Cincinnati minus 21 and 1/2, that's a half point hook. I still like them to cover this against USF.

And I'll tell you why Cincinnati is great. They just shut down Army's offense. Army had one touchdown, and it was a defensive touchdown. Their defense is amazing. But it's really not why I'm picking this. I'm picking this because USF is bad, bad.

USF has one win against the [INAUDIBLE]. And just to show you how bad the [INAUDIBLE] is, they lost by eastern Kentucky by more. And they had two quarterbacks. Neither of them have thrown 400 yards in any of their games. Cincinnati is number 15 for a reason. They about to blow this team out. I like them, plus two points. Give it to me.

MINTY BETS: OK, Cincy. And Matt, what's your pick?

MATT GOTHARD: Jared, I like Cincy, but I have a little bit of anger towards Luke Fickell. I wish he would've went to Michigan State. But I still think I like the Cincinnati Bearcats in that one. I had a rough weekend last week in college football. But nobody had a rougher weekend than LSU.

And you have to think about, who do you not want to be right now? And it's Vanderbilt, going up against the Tigers. Only getting 20 in that game, usually in those games I'm worried about a backdoor cover. Because LSU might rest their starters, give guys a shot. But coming off of a loss, they're going to want to make a statement. I like LSU big against Vanderbilt. Lay in minus 20.

JARED QUAY: Let me see your impression Ed O. You got an Ed O impression?

MATT GOTHARD: We coming. We coming.
