The Ultimate College Football Playoff Championship Betting Preview

The College Football Playoff Championship is set to kick off on Monday night, and it should be one of the best games in a long time. The LSU Tigers will take on the Clemson Tigers in a battle that most college football fans have been longing to see.

Both teams are in the top 10 in scoring offense, and they both have loaded defenses full of NFL talent.

LSU and Clemson both come into this game with records of 14-0, and both teams were conference champions. LSU represents the Southeastern Conference, and Clemson represents the Atlantic Coast Conference. The LSU Tigers are six-point favorites over Clemson in the title game.

Burrow Leads Explosive LSU Attack

LSU quarterback Joe Burrow was the Heisman Trophy winner this season after throwing for over 5,000 yards and 55 touchdowns. Burrow set all kinds of records in the College Football Playoff semifinal win against Oklahoma.

The Tigers score over 48 points per game, and their defense gives up just 21 points per contest. LSU is solid on both sides of the ball, but its offense has been unstoppable all season long.

Clemson Defense Can Be Elite

Clemson gave up just 10.6 points per game during the regular season, and its defense can be disruptive in this game. The Tigers love to rotate their defensive linemen, and they can all cause some havoc when fresh.

Clemson did give up 23 points to Ohio State in the semifinals, but it got off to a bad start early. Quarterback Trevor Lawrence is viewed as a future star in the NFL, and he has the ability to throw for a big total in this game.

Offense Will Rule the Day

Even though these teams take pride in their defenses, this game is going to be a high-scoring affair that will be dominated by the offenses. Both quarterbacks look like future NFL stars, and they are going to pick apart the opposing defenses in this game.

The betting total is set at 69.5 points for this one, and it’s hard to see these two teams combining for fewer points than that. Both teams average more than 45 points per game, and they will both want to score in this game.

Take the over 69.5 points at -110 when looking at the betting total.

A Look at Prop Bets

There will be a number of prop bets available on this game, but here are a few of the early ones that we think you should take a look at.

Joe Burrow Total Passing Yards:

  • Over 365.5 -110
  • Under 365.5 -110

Burrow averages close to 400 passing yards per game, but you have to think that LSU is going to run the ball a bit more in this game. The Heisman Trophy winner is capable of going over, but he likely won’t need to. Take the under 365.5 passing yards.

Trevor Lawrence Total Passing Yards:

  • Over 295.5 -110
  • Under 295.5 -110

Clemson is going to be trailing in this game, and Lawrence will have to try to lead it back. The Tigers love to run the football, but they are going to need points in a hurry. Even though it won’t help them win the game, betting over 295.5 passing yards for Lawrence is the play.

LSU Snaps Clemson’s Run

The Clemson Tigers have not exactly been dominant throughout the 2019 season, but they have yet to lose a game. Clemson has the “it” factor, but that won’t really matter against LSU.

The LSU Tigers have been dominant all season long, and they are clearly the best team in the country. Clemson won’t give up, but it’s hard to see this game being close for very long.

The LSU Tigers are going to win this game, and taking them at -6.0 is the smart pick to make in the College Football Playoff Championship Game.

College Football National Championship Betting Pick and Prediction

The field is set, and the College Football National Championship Game will kick off in less than two weeks. We will have a matchup as LSU will take on Clemson in the national title game. Both of these teams come into this game with perfect 14-0 records, and this was the matchup that most college football fans wanted to see. If you are a fan of high-scoring offenses, then this is an absolute must-watch.

Clemson is the reigning national champion in college football, and it was expected to be a title contender again this season. The Tigers blew through the Atlantic Coast Conference this season and survived a tough challenge from Ohio State in the semifinal victory.

LSU was not a title favorite before the year began, but it is the favorite in this game. The LSU Tigers dominated the competition in the SEC this season and blew out Oklahoma in their semifinal win.

The LSU Tigers are 5.5-point favorites over Clemson in the National Championship Game.

Burrow Leads Explosive Tigers Offense

LSU quarterback Joe Burrow was the Heisman Trophy winner this season after putting up some eye-popping numbers. Burrow didn’t slow down in the semifinal win, throwing seven first-half touchdowns in the rout of Oklahoma.

The former Ohio State quarterback threw for over 5,200 yards and 55 touchdowns this season, and he has also completed over 80 percent of his pass attempts. LSU also has a terrific rushing attack, but Burrow should have another huge game in this one.

The SEC is known for its defense, and the Tigers fit the mold. LSU held opponents to just 21 points per game this season, which was impressive considering how much time the defensive unit spent on the field.

LSU has a pair of future NFL stars in its secondary in safety Grant Delpit and cornerback Derek Stingley Jr., and they are getting a star linebacker, Michael Divinity, back in this game. If LSU plays an average game on defense, its offense should do the rest.

Lawrence, Etienne Carrying Clemson Offense

The LSU Tigers have some talented offensive players of their own, most notably Trevor Lawrence and Travis Etienne. Lawrence threw 36 touchdown passes this season, and he can also make some plays with his legs.

Etienne racked up over 1,500 rushing yards during the regular season, and he has found the end zone 18 times. It took Clemson awhile to get its offense rolling against Ohio State, and that can’t happen in this game.

Clemson had one of the most dominant defenses in the country a season ago, and this year’s version is pretty good as well. The Tigers gave up just 10.6 points per game this season, and they slowed down a great Ohio State offense in the semifinal win.

Clemson will have to find a way to get pressure on Burrow, but racking up sacks is one of its specialties. Holding LSU to under 30 points in this game might be a win.

LSU Just Has Too Much Offense

Both of these teams looked extremely impressive in their College Football Playoff semifinal wins, but only one team can be crowned champion. Even though both teams can score points in a hurry, defense will play a role at some point in this game.

Clemson just doesn’t have an offense to overwhelm the LSU defense, but the same cannot be said for the other way around. LSU has scored points on everyone this season, and that isn’t going to change in the National Championship Game.

The LSU Tigers are just too explosive, and they will cruise to victory in this game. Bet the LSU Tigers -5.5 over the Clemson Tigers in the College Football National Championship Game.

Must Bets During 2019 College Football Bowl Season

College football bowl season is here, and the first of 41 games is set to kick off this weekend. With so many games available to bet on, there is the real potential to win some money during bowl season.

It is also important to show some patience and restraint and wait for the best betting opportunities. We have picked the five games we like the best, and we are calling them the “Must Bets During 2019 College Football Bowl Season.”

Take a look at each game, and our betting pick and prediction for each.

Holiday Bowl: USC Trojans +2.0 vs. Iowa Hawkeyes

USC features an explosive offense led by a freshman quarterback, and the Iowa Hawkeyes have a terrific defense that is filled with veterans. The winner of this game is going to be the team that establishes its identity, but bowl season is usually full of offense.

Iowa is going to be ready to defend the Trojans in this game, but quarterback Kedon Slovis is not an easy man to stop. Iowa just doesn’t have the offense than can keep up in this one. Look for the USC Trojans to throw their way to victory in the Holiday Bowl.

Take the +2.0 points and pick the USC Trojans over the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Cotton Bowl Classic: Penn State Nittany Lions -6.0 vs. Memphis Tigers

Memphis comes into this game with a record of 12-1, but it is also losing its incredible head coach. Mike Norvell is moving on to Florida State next season, and he is leaving behind a talented group at Memphis.

Penn State finished the year with a record of 10-2, and it looks like a national title contender next season. The Nittany Lions can score points in a hurry, but their defense is going to win them this game.

Memphis will be upset about losing its coach, and its focus will not be there. Penn State is going to use the Cotton Bowl to springboard it to a huge 2020 season.

Penn State -6.0 is a must bet in this game.

Peach Bowl: Oklahoma Sooners +14.0 vs. LSU Tigers

The first semifinal game of the College Football Playoff will pit the LSU Tigers against the Oklahoma Sooners. LSU is the No. 1-ranked team in the country, and its offense has been unstoppable this season. Heisman Trophy winner. Joe Burrow completed nearly 80 percent of his passes, and the Tigers throw the ball a ton.

Oklahoma has had some major issues on defense this season, and that’s not going to make this matchup easy. The Sooners will try to outscore the Tigers, and that strategy just won’t work.

Quarterback Jalen Hurts is capable of making plays with his legs as well, but LSU is just too good. Oklahoma’s offense will keep this game closer than the spread, but the Tigers won’t really feel threatened.

The Tigers win this game, but look for Oklahoma to keep it within two touchdowns. Take the +14.0 points and the Sooners in this one.

Fiesta Bowl: Ohio State Buckeyes +2.0 vs. Clemson Tigers

One of the best games of college football bowl season should be the matchup between the Clemson Tigers and Ohio State Buckeyes. Both of these teams have terrific offenses, and their defenses can really get after opposing quarterbacks. Expect a high-scoring affair in the 2019 Fiesta Bowl as these two teams are both terrific.

Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields has had a monster first year in Columbus, and the Buckeyes can really score. Running back JK Dobbins is a game-breaker as well. Oh, and Ohio State has defensive end Chase Young, who is the best defensive player in the country.

Clemson still has a dynamic duo of Trevor Lawrence and Travis Etienne, and the Tigers are going to get their points also. The Tigers are the defending national champions and are perfect so far in 2019. Clemson had a new defensive line this season, but it has still held opponents to less than 13 points per game.

This game should be close, but Ohio State is the better team. Take the +2.0 points and pick the Buckeyes in this one.

Rose Bowl: Oregon Ducks +3.0 vs. Wisconsin Badgers

The annual Rose Bowl game is always highly anticipated, and this game should be terrific. Wisconsin had an interesting 2019 that saw it have some impressive wins but also some really bad losses.

The Badgers are led by running back Jonathan Taylor, who will leave school with a ton of records to his credit. Wisconsin also has a terrific defense that gave up just 16 points per game.

Oregon comes into this game with a ton of momentum after stunning the Utah Utes in the Pac-12 Championship Game. The Ducks were also great on defense this season, allowing just 15.7 points per game. Quarterback Justin Herbert is a future NFL talent, and the Ducks can score points in a hurry.

Oregon is winning this game, and taking them at +3.0 is a must in the Rose Bowl.

NCAA Football Conference Championship Betting Picks

It’s conference championship weekend around the world of college football, and there are some terrific games on the schedule. We have narrowed our focus to the Power 5 conference championship games, and have provided a betting preview and prediction for each game. Let’s take a look at each of them below.

Pac-12 Championship Game: Utah Utes -6.0 vs. Oregon Ducks

The Pac-12 Conference has been extremely competitive and unpredictable all season long, and it should be much of the same in the Pac-12 Championship Game. Utah comes into this game with a record of 11-1, while the Oregon Ducks are an impressive 10-2 this season. Both teams feature terrific play on the defensive side of the ball, and that could definitely play a huge role in this game.

Oregon has one of the best quarterback prospects in the country on its side in Justin Herbert, but he has not been great this season. The Ducks are averaging less than 275 passing yards per game, and their offense has not been as explosive as they usually are.

Utah has actually scored more points than Oregon this season, and its defense has been dominant as well. The Utes have allowed just 25 combined points in their last three games, and they will be tough in this game.

Bet the Utah Utes -6.0 over the Oregon Ducks in this game.

Big 12 Championship Game: Oklahoma Sooners -8.0 vs. Baylor Bears

The Big 12 Championship Game will feature the Oklahoma Sooners taking on the Baylor Bears. This is a rematch of a stunning regular-season game that featured a ridiculous comeback by the Sooners just three weeks ago. Baylor jumped out to a monster lead in that game but suffered a 31-28 defeat. Oklahoma wants to win games with its offense, and Baylor is one of the best defensive teams in the conference.

Baylor quarterback Charlie Brewer had a great regular season, throwing for close to 3,000 yards. The Bears put up more than 36 points per game this season, and their defense allowed just 18.4 per contest.

Oklahoma tried to outscore every opponent it played this season and ended the season with a scoring average of 44.3 points per game. Quarterback Jalen Hurts threw for over 300 yards per game this season, while also racking up over 1,200 rushing yards.

Bet the Oklahoma Sooners -8.0 over the Baylor Bears in the Big 12 Championship Game.

Big Ten Championship Game: Wisconsin Badgers +16.5 vs. Ohio State Buckeyes

The Big Ten Championship Game is a rematch between Wisconsin and Ohio State. The Buckeyes won the first matchup of the season by a score of 38-7, and they have not slowed down since the beginning of the season. Ohio State is the top-ranked team in the country, and it has outscored its first 12 opponents by an average of 38 points per game. The Buckeyes have plenty of NFL talent on their roster, and they waste little time in scoring when on offense.

Wisconsin does not have an explosive offense this season, but it does have one of the best running backs in the country. Jonathan Taylor has run for close to 1,800 yards and 18 touchdowns this season, and he has the potential to keep this game close. Wisconsin will have to sustain some long drives to give its defense a break in this game.

Ohio State is going to roll, but look for the Badgers to keep it close. Bet the Wisconsin Badgers +16.5 over the Ohio State Buckeyes.

SEC Championship Game: LSU Tigers -7.5 vs. Georgia Bulldogs

The best game of the weekend will likely be the SEC Championship Game between the LSU Tigers and Georgia Bulldogs. LSU is one of the highest-scoring teams in the country this season, and quarterback Joe Burrow is the likely Heisman Trophy winner. Georgia is giving up just 10 points per game this season, and its defense has the ability to shut down any opponent.

The Bulldogs can run the ball well with running back D’Andre Swift, and quarterback Jake Fromm has won some huge games in his career. The problem is that LSU has a terrific defense as well, and its secondary is loaded with future NFL players.

Burrow has completed nearly 80 percent of his passes this season, and LSU can score points in a hurry. The Tigers have some monster wins already this season, and they won’t be afraid of the moment.

Bet the LSU Tigers -7.5 over the Georgia Bulldogs in the SEC Championship Game.

ACC Championship Game: Clemson Tigers -28.5 vs. Virginia Cavaliers

The Clemson Tigers are the reigning national champions in college football, and they look like strong contenders to win it all again this season. Clemson is a monster 28.5-point favorite over Virginia in the ACC Championship Game, and it’s hard to imagine this game staying that close.

Virginia has three losses already this season, and its offense has really struggled of late. Clemson is loaded with NFL talent on offense, and quarterback Trevor Lawrence will have a big game in this one. The Tigers also have one of the best defenses in college football, and they aren’t going to give up much in this game.

Bet the Clemson Tigers -28.5 to blow out the Virginia Cavaliers in this game.

NCAA Football Week 13 Betting Picks and Predictions

It’s time to start looking ahead at the NCAA football week 13 schedule and look for some games to bet on. There are plenty of betting opportunities available, but there are a handful of games that really stand out. Let’s take a look at the four best games to bet on this weekend and give some betting picks and predictions.

Penn State Nittany Lions +17.5 at Ohio State Buckeyes

First place in the Big Ten East Division will be on the line when the Ohio State Buckeyes host the Penn State Nittany Lions. Ohio State is the top-scoring team in the country this season, while the Penn State defense has carried this team. Ohio State is a huge favorite, but this is a battle of two of the top 10 teams in the country.

Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields is putting up ridiculous numbers this season, as is running back J.K. Dobbins. The real star for Ohio State, though, is defensive end Chase Young, who leads college football with 13.5 sacks and will be returning to the field after a two-game suspension.

Penn State is averaging 37 points per game in its own right, but its defense carries this team. The Nittany Lions are allowing just 13.5 points per game, but they have been a bit shaky of late. Penn State will have to get some stops to keep this game close.

There is no doubt that Ohio State is the better team, but take the +17.5 points and look for this to be a close game.

Illinois Fighting Illini +16.0 at Iowa Hawkeyes

Illinois comes into this game with a ton of momentum after winning its last four games. The Fighting Illini are bowl eligible for the first time under head coach Lovie Smith, and their defense leads the country in several takeaway categories. Wide receiver Josh Imatorbhebhe has racked up close to 600 receiving yards this season and has nine touchdown receptions. Illinois still has some things to fix, but this team just never seems to quit.

Iowa does not score a ton of points on offense, but its defense is giving up less than 13 points per game. The Hawkeyes should also have some momentum after knocking Minnesota from the ranks of the unbeaten a week ago. Quarterback Nate Stanley has thrown for over 235 passing yards per game, and the Hawkeyes will use their tight ends a ton. Iowa is always tough to beat at Kinnick Stadium, and it should win this game as well.

This is another Big Ten matchup where taking the points is the right play, and the Fighting Illini will keep this game within two scores.

Texas A&M Aggies at Georgia Bulldogs -13.5

The Georgia Bulldogs have played their way into the College Football Playoff picture, and now they will be looking to stay there this weekend. Georgia’s defense gets overlooked a lot of times, but they are giving up just 10.5 points per game. Running back D’Andre Swift has run for over 1,000 yards this season, and the Bulldogs will run the ball a lot in this game. Georgia doesn’t score a ton, but it has the weapons to do so.

Texas A&M has won four straight games, and it has been scoring points like crazy during the winning streak. The Aggies are led by quarterback Kellen Mond, who has thrown for over 2,400 yards and 18 touchdowns this season. Texas A&M wants to play fast, but that will put its defense on the field in this game. The Aggies are giving up more than 20 points per game, and that will hurt them in this matchup.

Bet the Georgia Bulldogs -13.5 over the Texas A&M Aggies in this SEC Showdown.

UCLA Bruins at USC Trojans -13.5

USC and UCLA have one of the best rivalries in college football, and they will resume that rivalry on Saturday. UCLA is suffering through another tough season, and its rival USC is having a great bounce-back campaign.

USC freshman quarterback Kedon Slovis is the biggest reason for the Trojans’ great season up to this point. Slovis will still make some mistakes at times, but he has thrown for 2,727 yards and 24 touchdowns this season. The Trojans are a little shaky on the defensive side of the ball, but that should not be a huge issue in this game. USC is allowing 27 points per game, but it has played better in its two most recent games.

UCLA has won three of its last four games, but it is still trying to find a way to be more explosive on offense. The Bruins are averaging just 26.7 points per game, and it’s hard to win scoring that little. UCLA is also allowing 33.7 points per game, and its shaky pass defense will be tested in this one.

Take the USC Trojans -13.5 to blow out their rivals from UCLA in this game.

Top 3 Bets For Week Eight In College Football

The 2019 college football season is flying by, and week eight is quickly approaching. The race to reach the College Football Playoff is starting to heat up, as are conference races across the country. There aren’t a lot of top-25 matchups on the schedule this weekend, but there are some terrific betting opportunities.

Let’s take a look at the top three bets for week eight of the college football season. A betting pick and prediction is provided for each of the three games below.

Florida Gators -6.0 at South Carolina Gamecocks

South Carolina stunned the Georgia Bulldogs last weekend, and they will have another top-10 opponent facing them this weekend. The No. 9 Florida Gators will be coming to town, and they will be trying to bounce back after a tough loss to the No. 2 LSU Tigers in week seven. If you are a fan of hard-hitting defenses, then this is the game that you will want to watch.

Florida quarterback Kyle Trask played well in the loss at LSU last Saturday night, but the Gators’ vaunted defense gave up a ton of points to the Tigers. Florida has allowed just 14.1 points per game this season, but it was exposed in several areas in that loss. The Gators will be looking to hand the ball to Lamical Perine in hopes that he can establish the running game.

South Carolina did almost everything right in its win over No. 10 Georgia, including limiting the Bulldogs to just 17 points. The Gamecocks have given up close to 23 points per game this season, but they stepped it up in that game. Quarterback Ryan Hilinski comes into this game a little banged up, and that will hurt South Carolina in this game.

Bet the Florida Gators -6.0 over the South Carolina Gamecocks in this game.

Oregon Ducks -3.0 at Washington Huskies

No. 12 Oregon lost its season opener to Auburn, but it has been on a roll ever since that game. The Ducks have not exactly been dominant in all of their wins, but they come into this game with a record of 6-1. No. 25 Washington has had an up-and-down season and is just 2-2 so far in Pac-12 Conference play.

Quarterback Justin Herbert is one of the best in the country for Oregon, and he is having a solid season. Herbert has thrown for over 1,600 yards, and Washington will have to find a way to slow him down.

The real story for Oregon has been their defense, as that unit is allowing just over eight points per game. The Ducks will blitz a ton, and they have a talented secondary filled with athletes.

Washington has been solid on defense this season as well, holding teams to less than 20 points per game. The Huskies rode their defense to a Pac-12 championship a season ago, but it has been their offense leading them this season.

Washington is averaging more than 34 points per game, and they have plenty of balance on offense. The Huskies will be trying to solve one of the best defenses in the country in this game.

This game should be tight throughout, but the defense of Oregon is just too good to bet against. Take the Oregon Ducks -3.0 over the Washington Huskies in this Pac-12 showdown.

Michigan Wolverines at Penn State Nittany Lions -9.0

The Big Ten Conference race is still wide open, but things will look a bit more clear after this game. No. 7 Penn State is hosting No. 16 Michigan on Saturday night, and this has the potential to be the best game of the weekend. Michigan is 3-1 so far in Big Ten play, while Penn State is a perfect 3-0.

Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson continues to struggle with accuracy, as he has completed just 57 percent of his passes this season. The Wolverines have been trying to run the ball more this season, and Zach Charbonnet will be a huge part of the game plan in this one.

Michigan will be facing a terrific defense, but it has some talent on offense. The Wolverines defense has played well at times, but they were gashed by the Wisconsin running game in their only loss of the season.

Penn State has been doing almost everything right all season long, and they are always tough to beat at home. The Nittany Lions are allowing just 8.2 points per game this season, and their offense is averaging 42.0 points per contest.

Penn State has all of the tools needed to win the Big Ten Conference this season, but this will be their toughest game to date.

Look for the Penn State defense to shut down Michigan, and the Nittany Lions are going to run away with this game. Bet Penn State -9.0 over Michigan in this Big Ten Conference matchup.

Top 5 College Football Bets for Week 4

The 2019 NCAA Football season is in full swing, and conference battles are starting to appear on the schedule. There are plenty of marquee matchups on the week 4 schedule, and there are plenty of matchups featuring a pair of ranked teams.

Looking for the top five college football bets can be overwhelming, but we have selected five games from the list of top-25 games. Let’s take a look at each game below while making a betting pick for each of them.

Air Force Falcons at Boise State Broncos -8.5

Week 4 of the college football season will kick off with a terrific game on Friday night. The Boise State Broncos have been one of the best stories of the season so far in college football, and they will look to move to 4-0 in this game. Air Force brings a 2-0 record into this game, and they have been mighty impressive as well.

The Falcons have one of the best rushing attacks in college football, and they will run the ball on almost every play in this game. Boise State quarterback Hank Bachmeier has thrown for 927 yards this season and should have another huge game in this one. Air Force will keep it close, but Boise State -8.5 is the right play in this game.

Michigan Wolverines at Wisconsin Badgers -3.5

The Big Ten Conference has a lot of talented teams this season, and two of them are set to square off in week 4. Wisconsin will host Michigan in a very important game, and the winner of this matchup will have a huge win on its resume.

Michigan barely survived a week 2 win over Army, and its offense just isn’t clicking on all cylinders yet. Wisconsin has outscored its first two opponents by a combined score of 110-0, and the Badgers will run the ball like crazy in this game. Running back Jonathan Taylor is just too good, and he will lead his Badgers to a comfortable win in this game.

Auburn Tigers +3.5 at Texas A&M Aggies

The Auburn Tigers are a perfect 3-0 so far this season, but that record will be tested in a road game at Texas A&M on Saturday afternoon. The Aggies suffered a disappointing 24-10 loss to Clemson in week 2, but they still have their sights set on winning the SEC this season.

Auburn has a freshman, Bo Nix, at quarterback, and he has really struggled so far this season. JaTarvious Whitlow has been running the ball like crazy, but the Tigers will need some offensive balance in this game.

Texas A&M has a veteran quarterback in Kellen Mond, but he has made some costly mistakes already this season. Don’t expect a ton of offense in this game as SEC matchups tend to be full of defense and big hitting. Auburn is the more complete team, and they will get a huge road win in this game. Bet the Auburn Tigers +3.5 over the Texas A&M Aggies.

UCF Knights -12.0 at Pittsburgh Panthers

UCF just continues to win games despite having some extreme roster turnover in the last few seasons. The Knights have three extremely talented quarterback options, and it hasn’t mattered who has been playing under center this season.

UCF has struggled to get quality competition on its schedule, but a road game at Pittsburgh will be a huge step in the right direction. The Panthers are just 1-2 this season, but both of their losses have come against ranked teams.

Pittsburgh is averaging just 87 rushing yards per game, and that problem must be solved in this game. Playing at home should help the Panthers keep this game close for a while, but UCF just has way too much talent. Take the UCF Knights -12.0 to win this important road game.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish +14.0 at Georgia Bulldogs

Notre Dame and Georgia will meet up on Saturday night in a matchup of two of the most successful teams in the last few years. Notre Dame was forced to replace a ton of starters from last season’s team that went through the regular season with an undefeated record.

Quarterback Ian Book is not a new player, and he is putting up huge numbers this season. Book is a dual-threat quarterback and leads the team with 127 rushing yards.

Georgia has a dynamic duo in Jake Fromm and D’Andre Swift. These two men will be playing on Sundays in the near future, and they have been almost impossible to stop this season. Georgia is going to win this game, but Notre Dame will not get blown out. Take the +14.0 points and bet the Fighting Irish in this matchup with the Bulldogs.

Top 5 NCAA Football Teams To Bet On In Week 2

Week one of the college football season has come and gone, and week two will kick off Friday night. There is another full slate of games on tap, and there are some terrific betting matchups. There are a number of teams to bet on in week two throughout the college football landscape, but we have narrowed our search to games featuring Top-25 teams.

Let’s take a look at the five top teams to bet on in week two of the NCAA football season, with odds and reasons given.

Boise State Broncos -12.0 vs. Marshall Thundering Herd

The first team on this list will play on Friday night and will kick off a nice weekend of winning if you bet on them. The Boise State Broncos will host the Marshall Thundering Herd in a battle of 1-0 teams. Boise State is a 12.0-point favorite in its home opener after pulling off a dramatic come-from-behind victory over the Florida State Seminoles. Marshall earned a 56-17 win over VMI, but this will be a huge step up in competition.

Broncos quarterback Hank Bachmeier threw for 407 yards and one touchdown in week one and should have another big game in this one. Marshall just simply doesn’t have the talent or depth to keep up to win this game, and the Boise State Broncos are going to roll on the blue turf. Boise State is going to easily cover the 12.0-point spread in this game.

Ohio State Buckeyes -16.0 vs. Cincinnati Bearcats

Week one of the Ryan Day era went surprisingly well in Columbus, as Ohio State had little trouble rolling to a victory. The Buckeyes blew out Florida Atlantic 45-21 in their season opener. Ohio State will now take on in-state rival Cincinnati, and they will be 16.0-point favorites. The Cincinnati Bearcats are also 1-0 on the season after beating the UCLA Bruins by a score of 24-14.

The Bearcats looked impressive in their season opener, but taking on the Buckeyes in Columbus is never an easy task. Ohio State introduced new quarterback Justin Fields a week ago, and he had 234 passing yards and four touchdowns. Cincinnati is going to hang around until halftime, but this game feels like a rout. Bet the Ohio State Buckeyes -16.0 over the Cincinnati Bearcats.

Oregon Ducks vs. Nevada Wolf Pack +24.0

Oregon heads home this week after suffering a devastating loss a week ago to Auburn. The Ducks led for the entire game but saw the Tigers slip past them in the final seconds of the game. Oregon will be taking on a Nevada Wolf Pack team that pulled off a miraculous win of their own in the season opener. Nevada kicker Brandon Talton made a game-winning field goal as time expired to stun Purdue a week ago.

The Wolf Pack are 24.0-point underdogs in this game, but they will have a ton of momentum and confidence. Oregon is the much better team in this matchup, but Nevada will keep this one close. Stay away from the moneyline in this game, but take the 24.0 points and bet on Nevada in this game.

Texas Longhorns vs. LSU Tigers -6.0

The biggest game of the weekend features the Auburn Tigers and Texas Longhorns. Both of these teams are ranked in the top 10 coming into this game, and the winner of this game will get a huge boost in the playoff standings. Both the Tigers and Longhorns looked sharp in their season openers, but this will be a much tougher battle for each team. Injuries have hit the Texas team hard already this season, especially at the running back position.

LSU quarterback Joe Burrow went 23-27 for 278 yards and five touchdowns in the season opener and finally gives the Tigers an elite passer. Neither team is going to break open a huge lead in this game, but the Tigers will win by at least a touchdown. Bet the LSU Tigers -6.0 over the Texas Longhorns in week two.

Central Michigan Chippewas +35.0 at Wisconsin Badgers

The final team to bet on this weekend is the Central Michigan Chippewas. The Chippewas are traveling to Madison, Wis., to take on the 17th-ranked Badgers, and they are getting no respect. Central Michigan beat Albany by a final score of 38-21 in the season opener, but this will definitely be a tougher test.

Wisconsin blew out USF, winning by a score of 49-0. The Badgers should be one of the top teams in the Big Ten this season, but they don’t have a ton of great athletes. Look for the Chippewas to stick around in this game, before eventually losing by a few touchdowns. Wisconsin wins the game, but it would be wise to take the Central Michigan Chippewas at +35.0.
