Week 0/1 College Football Betting Analysis

Wanting to dip your toes in the betting world this season or needing a reminder on how to make the best picks for this college football season? We got a great betting tutorial to help you out.

Let's get started on where you might want to make your wagers in Week 1. 

(5) LSU Tigers vs (8) florida state seminoles

Now, this game is a big one because it's the only ranked meeting of the week. It's always an intense battle when two top 10 ranked groups go head-to-head, with the OVER hitting in 66.3% of last year's matchups. 

This contest has even more at stake because it's a rematch from last season's finish that left us on the edge of our seats. An eventful second-half, totalling 37 points, had Florida State barely sneak past LSU in a 24-23 victory. 

Both squads finished on a level playing field, with the Seminoles holding a 9-3 record and the Tigers carrying a similar 9-4 finish. Even oddsmakers predict another tight one with LSU pinned subtle 2.5-point favorites at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. Who will take control of the scoreboard this time around?

Middle Tennessee State vs (4) Alabama

The Crimson Tide has got a lot of pressure on them this season. Not only did No. 4 Alabama miss the CFP for just the second time last year, it was ranked outside the preseason AP Poll's top three for the first time since 2009. 

Not to mention, Nick Saban had to say goodbye to Bryce Young, who was selected first-overall in the NFL Draft. The 2021 Heisman Trophy winner wrapped up his senior year with over 3,300 passing yards and 36 total touchdowns -- hard spot to fill. 

But despite those shortcomings, oddsmakers don't expect them to miss a beat and tag them as whopping 39-point favorites. 

East Carolina vs (2) Michigan

On the flip side of things, No. 2 Michigan has been gifted its highest preseason ranking since 1998. The Wolverines will look to keep that high number against the East Carolina Pirates, who finished last year with a 8-5 overall record.

Michigan had its national championship hopes snatched away when No. 17 TCU took home the 51-45 win at the Fiesta Bowl. But unlike most replacing key players, the Wolverines can keep falling back on QB1 J.J. McCarthy and RB Blake Corum, who was just named a captain for the upcoming season. 

Michigan went 8-4-1 ATS in the regular season of 2022, with 11 of those being double-digit spreads. So, don't think that the 36-point favored line is scaring them at all.
