College Football Betting: Wild Ride Begins As College Football Kicks Off This Weekend

Written by Matt Stevens

NCAA Football OddsAfter a long and in most cases tumultuous college football offseason, the stage is set for what should be an exciting kickoff weekend. All eyes will be on the Penn State Nittany Lions as they open a new season at home against Ohio Saturday afternoon, and there could be some value there at the end of what has been an emotional ride this past summer. Later on in the evening the top-ranked USC Trojans will debut the high-powered offense that everyone in the country seems to be talking about, but east of California the sports betting spotlight will be on the defending national champion and No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide as they take on the No. 8 Michigan Wolverines. Join Now to Bet on this Game!

Ohio Bobcats @ Penn State Nittany Lions (-6)
Saturday, 12:00 PM ET

The football betting line for this game is down to six, and even if everything that went down at Penn State this past offseason hadn’t happened we would think the Nittany Lions would be good to cover.

The emotional motivation that should come with the “Us vs. the World” mentality should play a big role in this game, as it takes on a much more personal tone for the players on the field. The sanctions levied against Penn State won’t hurt the actual on-field performance as much in year one as in years two and three, and you can expect the Nittany Lions to come out strong and set the tone for what is expected to be a wild ride this year.

College Football Betting Pick: Nittany Lions – 6

Hawaii Warriors @ #1 USC Trojans (-40)
Saturday, 7:30 PM ET

The hype that came with Heisman trophy candidate and quarterback Matt Barkley returning to USC for his senior season is a big part of what pushed the Trojans back in to the top spot in the national rankings. Barkley is back to take care of unfinished business as he gets his first shot at a national title after USC was banned from Bowl games the past two years, and after waiting so long to finally get their shot at the big stage, look for the Trojans to come out firing in what should be an embarrassment, as highlighted by the line the bookies have created. USC will cover the number, although a teaser would be worth the risk here.

College Football Betting Pick: USC Trojans - 40

# 8 Michigan Wolverines @ #2 Alabama Crimson Tide (-11)
Saturday, 8:00 PM ET

You better believe Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban is using the snub for the top ranking in the country as motivation to fire up his troops for the opener against Michigan. Both teams will be considered national title contenders if they win, but as we have seen time and again these high-powered offenses from other conferences simply don’t perform well against the beasts from the SEC. Alabama still has a lot to prove despite being the defending national champion, and that doesn’t bode well for a Wolverines’ team that may be overhyped.
