The College Football season is underway. After a series of games last weekend, we go full throttle with games this weekend. There are some pretty good games, each of the following games – Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We have looked over the games, and are ready to give you the best College Football Week 1 Top 5 Betting Picks and Tips.
Indiana Hoosiers +21 over Ohio State Buckeyes
The Indiana Hoosiers are treating this as a National title game of sorts. The Hoosiers have high expectations to keep this game close. Indiana will need to take care of the football, and move the ball to keep the clock moving. While Ohio State is going to be one of the best defensive teams in the nation, Indiana in Week 1 will hang with them. Do not expect an Indiana win, but they should compete.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights +28 over Washington Huskies
The Huskies made the College Football playoff a season ago, but they will be down a bit. Sure, they are still going to be really good, but look for the home team to compete well. Rutgers is too early in the season to realize how poor they are. Look for them to compete in this game, but much like Indiana – they won’t win. Take the Scarlet Knights on Friday.
Illinois Fighting Illini -6.5 over Ball State Cardinals
Okay, this is a bad football game. One of the worst teams in the Big Ten will take on a historically bad Ball State team. Lovie Smith is in his second season; so you have to expect some improvement out of the Orange and blue. Look for it to start early. The final bet for this game is the Fighting Illini to cover the spread over the visitors from Ball State.
Michigan Wolverines -3 over Florida Gators
One of the biggest games of the week. Florida has done quite a bit of talking, but they have several guys out, and they will still have a tough time scoring. If the Florida offense did not improve greatly, they are going to be in big trouble. Look for Harbaugh and crew to make a huge statement with a blowout win in this game on Saturday.
USC Trojans -27 over Western Michigan Broncos
This is no longer the P.J. Fleck Western Michigan Broncos. While they will still have some talented players on the roster, they are going to be outclassed big time by one of the best teams in the country. USC is going to score early and score often all season long, and there is no reason not to expect they start in the first game of the season.
