On Thursday Night into Friday morning in the fall, Scott Van Pelt provides one of the more entertaining segments in sports media with his “Winner$” segment on ESPN’s SportsCenter. Admittedly not the sharpest bettor around, SVP picks his favorite CFB and NFL plays week-to-week and often times finds success. Each and every week, we cover his picks and track his record from previous weeks. Last week’s picks were successful, as SVP was 2-0 in CFB and 2-2 in NFL. Will Week 4 (or Week 5 in CFB) be the same? Let’s dive into SVP’s picks for this weekend’s football action.

 

SVP College Football Picks – Week 5

Here is a look at SVP’s “Winner$” picks for Week 5 in college football.

SMU +2.5 vs. Memphis

SVP loves underdogs in CFB, and SMU is his first one against #25 Memphis to win.

Vanderbilt +21 vs. LSU

SVP picked this last year, and lost. This year, he thinks Vandy can cover.

West Virginia +2.5 vs. Baylor

West Virginia to win, per “Moneyline Mike” on SVP’s “Winner$” segment. They are getting +2.5, and SVP is taking them

Texas A&M +17.5 vs. Alabama

As always, “It’s not fun to take points against Alabama”, but Scott Van Pelt is taking the Aggies +17.5 as his fourth CFB game in Week 5.

Scott Van Pelt Week 4 NFL Picks

After picking his CFB favorites, SVP moves onto the NFL where he has his top picks for Week 4.

Miami Dolphins +6.5 vs. Seattle Seahawks

SVP is taking Miami +6.5 with Seattle playing in the humidity. “Steve had one word this week, humidity”. SVP likes the Dolphins.

Las Vegas Raiders +3 vs. Buffalo Bills

SVP says “no stats or reasons why, because I said”. That is his reasoning for the Raiders, the second of three home underdogs.

Carolina Panthers +3.5 vs. Arizona Cardinals

The third home dog of the week is the Panthers +3.5 against the Cardinals, and SVP is on the Panthers train for Week 4.
