If you like to make the most out of your college football betting bucks by betting on value-packed underdogs that have a high probability of cashing in, then you’re in luck.
This fun-filled, yet informative betting breakdown on three Week 1 pairings will point you in the right direction toward making a series of potentially winning wagers, starting wit these three games.
Now, with Week 2 quickly approaching, let’s get started.
My CFB Week 2 Must Bet On Underdogs
Michigan State +11 at No. 3 Oregon
The Oregon Ducks might have the big-name star in Heisman Trophy contender Marcus Mariota and one the game’s most explosive offenses, but it is the Michigan State Spartans that are my pick to cover the NCAA betting line in this matchup. Mostly because they have a voracious defense.
The Spartans are 7-1 ATS in their last eight games, 6-1 ATS in their last seven games following an SU win and a consistent 16-5-1 ATS in their last 22 road games.
The Ducks are just 1-4 ATS in their last five home games and 1-5 ATS in their last six games overall.
The Pick: Michigan State +11
San Diego State +15.5 at North Carolina
North Carolina routed little Liberty 56- 29 in their 2014 opener last week but I think the Tar Heels are far overrated heading into this contest.
San Diego State throttled Northern Arizona 38-7 to win its opener last week and I think the Aztecs are the right pick to cove the spread, if not win outright.
The Aztecs are 6-0 ATS in their last six games after allowing less than 20 points in their previous game and 5-1 ATS in their last half-dozen games overall.
North Carolina apparently doesn’t fare well right after they put up a ton of points, having gone 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games after scoring more than 40 points in their previous game.
The Aztecs are 5-2 ATS in their L/7 games against a team with a winning record and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 road games against a team with a winning home record.
The Pick: San Diego State +15.5
Michigan +3.5 at Notre Dame
Notre Dame may be playing at home in this Week 2 affair, but I really like the Michigan Wolverines to get the ATS cover – by getting the outright road win against a Fighting Irish team that I believe is a bit overrated right now.
The Wolverines are 4-1 ATS in their last five games and an identical 4-1 ATS in their last five games against teams from the Independent conference.
Notre Dame apparently don’t handle success very well as the Fighting Irish have gone just 2-12 ATS in their last 14 games after scoring more than 40 points in their previous game, 1-7 ATS in their last eight games following an SU win of more than 20 points and a discouraging 0-3-1 ATS in their last four games in the month of September.
