College Football Week 2 Betting
The Week 2 college football betting schedule gets underway with a pair of games on Friday night, but the real action takes place on Saturday with several enticing matchups among a plethora of games throughout the day.
The Alabama Crimson Tide showed why they are the top team in the land with a thorough 55-0 beating of Utah State. The competition goes up a notch when the Tide pays a visit to the Texas Longhorns in an early matchup to get Saturday underway. This is a big season for Steve Sarkisian and the Horns after going 5-7 last year. The 2022 campaign got off to a successful start with a 52-10 win over UL Monroe, a nice warmup for QB Quinn Ewers and the youthful Horns before the stuff hits the fan. Few expect the Horns to win the game – they are a 20-point dog on the opening line – but hanging close with the No. 1 team could be considered a victory.
There is plenty of hype surrounding the USC Trojans after a busy offseason landed coach Lincoln Riley and QB Caleb Williams, among others, from the transfer portal. The men of Troy didn’t disappoint in the opener hanging double sixes on Rice. USC has had problems with Stanford in the past and though they’re favored by 9-points, it should be a stiff test. And SC is likely the last CFP hope for the Pac-12 after Oregon and Utah were defeated in Week 1.
There are some crazy spreads on the Week 2 betting board but none more outrageous than the line for the Hawai’i at Michigan matchup. The Wolverines dominated on defense and got production from Cade McNamara and J.J. McCarthy as they fight for the QB1 job. UM is a whopping 50-point favorite on the opening line and it’s well-deserved since the Rainbow Warriors were outscored 112-27 by Vanderbilt and Western Kentucky.
Those in the eastern part of the country might want to stay awake for the showdown between the Baylor Bears and BYU Cougars in what should be a tussle to end a busy day on the gridiron. Both teams lived up to their national ranking last week with lopsided wins. The defending Big 12 champion Bears poured it on in a 69-10 win over FCS Albany, covering the 42.5-point closing line. Blake Shapen won the starting QB job and was efficient completing 17 of 20 with a pair of TDs.
BYU loaded its roster and schedule with ranked opponents in hopes of playing a meaningful game at the end of the season. The start was nice hanging half a hundy on USF. The Cougs scored on their first offensive play against the Bulls scoring four touchdowns in the first 11 minutes. BYU hit the board as a 3-point favorite in a game featuring two balanced and well-matched clubs.
