As I discussed in my winning preview of the Alabama Florida State game, NCAA football odds are dependent on kids. Superb athletes with huge hearts, but still teenagers for the most part. Quarterbacks typically run as often as throw, O lines miss blocks, and defenses gets confused. Its part of the charm when it comes to betting college football online.
NCAA Football Odds – Betting Lines
As NCAA college football heads into Week 2 I thought I would look at some interesting matchups and see if we could squeeze out a little profit. First up we have Fresno State against the Alabama Crimson Tide. As predicted by yours truly, Alabama beat the Florida State Seminoles and the pointspread quite handily last week. Nick Saban and team look and play like the nation’s number one team for sure.
The Fresno State Bulldogs may be a Division 1 team but that is like saying Mercury and Jupiter are both planets. Err, the Bulldogs are Mercury here if that makes sense. The pointspread currently has Fresno as +43.5 underdogs and we may never see a moneyline as it will be rarer than a unicorn. The gambler in me loves to take the +43.5 points but even with the largest spread in the history of NCCA football odds it may not be enough. Take the Over 53.5 and pray that Fresno State manages to kick a couple of field goals.
College Football Best Picks – Stanford vs. USC
Now this should proved to be an interesting game as the rich eggheads from Stanford take on the rich jocks from University of Southern California. The nerdy west coast Ivy League school has one of the most well funded sports programs in the country and is surprisingly competitive.
USC is of course a classic NCAA football program with a number of national titles and Heisman winners. The line is -6.5 for the Trojans at home which is giving a lot of respect to Stanford on the road. USC is also -240 on the moneyline and the O/U sits at 55. I think that pointspread is way too narrow in favor of Stanford and I think you take USC at -6.5. I don’t expect the game to be that close and that should be a solid win regardless of the NCAA football odds.
Notre Dame Game Odds – NCAA Betting Online
And lastly, the Georgia State Bulldogs versus the Notre Dame Fighting Irish should be a popular game this weekend as the game is on NBC. The Irish are +5.5 underdogs at home against Georgia and I think this should be a competitive contest. Although neither team is currently a national threat, they are both elite programs that should deliver some entertainment value. I like Notre Dame here but take them on the -220 money line as this could be close.
