College Football Week 2 Opening Lines

The USC Trojans have designs on getting back into the national title picture, and they'll get a great chance to assert themselves this week when they take on the Cardinal at Stanford as road underdogs on the college football Week 2 opening betting lines.

USC opened its season last week with a 52-13 thumping of Fresno State, while Stanford blanked UC Davis 45-0 in its first game of the season. For their matchup on Saturday afternoon at Stanford the oddsmakers at 5Dimes have opened the Cardinal as 3.5-point home favorites on the betting lines.

The other top matchup on the college football betting slate for Week 2 features another Pac-12 team, as Oregon plays host to Michigan State as a 12.5-point favorite on the college football opening betting lines at 5Dimes. Oregon beat South Dakota 62-13 in its first game of the season, while Michigan State topped Jacksonville State 45-7.

Ohio State survived its first game without quarterback Braxton Miller at the helm last week, beating Navy by a score of 34-17. The Buckeyes are listed as 12-point favorites on the Week 2 college football opening betting lines at 5Dimes over Virginia Tech, who are coming off a 34-9 win over William & Mary.

And two other top-ranked teams will get even bigger spreads to try and cover this week, with Alabama favored by 40.5 points at home over Florida Atlantic on the opening odds at 5Dimes, and Oklahoma favored by 24.5 points on the road against Tulsa. No. 1 Florida State hosts Citadel this week; odds were not yet posted for that expected mismatch as of Sunday night.
