Gators vs Hurricanes betting preview

The Gators opened as 2-point road favorites in the first meeting between these two in-state rivals since 2008.

The Gators looked strong defensively in an opening win over Toledo, despite five players being suspended and multiple others missing the game with injuries. Most of the players who sat out against Toledo are supposed to be back to face Miami, a team expected to contend in the ACC in coach Al Golden’s second season.

Star running back Duke Johnson rushed for 186 yards and a touchdown in the Hurricanes’ 34-6 opening win over Florida Atlantic.

Miami went 3-0 as a home underdog last season and is 5-2 in that situation over the past 10 seasons.


College Football Betting: Week 2 Overview

College football’s opening week featured a ton of upsets, with seven teams from the Football Bowl Subdivision falling to teams from the lower FCS level. 
What does Week 2 have in store for bettors?

Florida State favored big at Pitt

The Jameis Winston era kicks off at Florida State with a road test at new ACC foe Pittsburgh.

Winston, a dynamic redshirt freshman quarterback, is a darkhorse Heisman candidate and leads a Seminole offense that returns seven starters, including four offensive linemen. Pittsburgh enters its second season under coach Paul Chryst with tempered expectations.

Rutgers transfer Tom Savage will start at QB for the Panthers, who return just five starters on offense. Pittsburgh has covered the spread in four of its last five games as a home underdog.

Florida State has covered the spread in all three season openers under coach Jimbo Fisher, but all three of those games have come against non-BCS competition.

And FSU bettors should beware the recent Noles trend: they are 0-6 ATS in their past 6 games as a road favorite.


Louisville big chalk vs Ohio Bobcats

This is a sneaky good matchup between perennial MAC power Ohio and a Louisville team receiving plenty of hype this offseason.

Ohio opened last season by winning at Penn State, but the Bobcats are much bigger underdogs (+21) against the Cardinals.

Heisman candidate Teddy Bridgewater leads a Louisville offense that averaged 31.2 points per game last season. Ten starters return on the Cardinals’ defense.

Ohio’s offense is led by senior quarterback Tyler Tettleton, who led the Bobcats to an impressive 45-14 rout of Louisiana-Monroe in the Independence Bowl last season. The Cardinals are just 7-14 against the spread at home under coach Charlie Strong.

Texas AM vs Rice betting preview, Manziel?

Whether he plays or not, all eyes will be on Aggie quarterback Johnny Manziel.

The reigning Heisman Trophy winner’s status is in question after allegations surfaced that he took money in exchange for his autograph. The NCAA investigated, and Manziel will miss the first half.

True freshman Kenny Hill appears to be the favorite to step in. Rice is one of the most experienced teams in the nation, returning 19 starters.

Quarterback Taylor McHargue is a hidden star and put up big numbers last season. The Owls are 10-15 against the spread in non-conference play under coach David Bailiff.

Rice has been tough as an underdog lately, winning three in a row SU and going 6-1-1 ATS in eight. But 28 points?
