Week 2 College Football Betting Predictions

It’s week 2 of the college football betting season and there’s plenty tantalizing action lined up discerning bettors everywhere.

And, this week we’ve got the line on a few games that promise to put lots of dough in your pockets. Let’s get going…

Oregon Ducks at Michigan States Spartans

Last year the Oregon Ducks outplayed the Spartans 28-3 in the second half of the game, that ended in a 46-26 win for the Ducks.

This year however the Ducks have a new quarterback, Vernon Adams, and it’ll be the first time he’s really tested on the road against a team that traditionally has been successful in poking holes in their defenses. They only won last year because of Marcus Mariota, who has moved on to the pros as the Tennessee Titans QB.

There’s also the fact that the Ducks aren’t quite the defensive team they once were under Chip Kelly and former defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti.

The Spartans are the 3.5-point favorites and we believe they’ll cover the spread easily.

LSU Tiger at Mississippi State Bulldogs

The Tigers are the 4.5 point favorites heading into this match against the Bulldogs.

The problem for LSU is that it’ll be their first game this season and Les Miles hasn’t really had a chance to try out their offense or QB Brandon Harris. This means that although the Tigers will likely win, they won’t cover the spread.

Some analysts in fact, expect the Bulldogs to pull the upset. We think that’s somewhat far-fetched though.

Although it’ll be a close game, too close to bet on the Tigers, we’re taking the Bulldogs ATS at +4.5.

Oklahoma Sooners at Tennessee Volunteers

The Sooners are on their way to Knoxville to face the Vols on Saturday at 6:00 PM EST.

Neither of these teams are heavy favorites as the slight 1 point spread on Oklahoma reflects.

It’s hard to make a call based on the stats alone and although Tennessee may have the slight home field advantage, the Sooners’ QB Baker Mayfield could capitalize on his team’s strong running game which could swing the game their way.

This being the case, the best bet should be the OVER 61.5.

Houston Cougars at Louisville Cardinals

This will most likely be a lively game to watch, as both teams will put up many points on the board.

The Cougars are a team to watch this year and some analysts were even predicting they would go undefeated this season. The Cardinals lost to Auburn in their first game, and they’ll be wanting to prove themselves in front of their home crowd for this match.

We suggest taking the OVER 53.5.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Virginia Cavaliers

The line suggests that the Fighting Irish will demolish the Cavaliers. Notre Dame won convincingly last week against the Texas Longhorns and they just keep on running on that steam into this game.

If you add Virginia’s loss to UCLA in their last game to the mix, without a question it’ll be an easy win for Notre Dame.

The problem is the spread is too high to bet Notre Dame ATS, especially considering that their 5-12 ATS record.

We’re going for Virginia ATS at +11.5

And there you have ‘em folks, our picks for week 2 of the College Football Season.
