Best College Football Games to Wager in Week 1

The opening week of college football isn’t without it’s mismatches.  This slate of games almost always features some of the largest point spreads of the season.  Bigger programs look to start their year with a blowout victory, while smaller schools look to put their name on the map with a major upset.

This year the first week has just two top 25 teams matching up with #11 Oregon squaring off with #16 Auburn, but there are still plenty of games to keep an eye on. I will be watching the Florida State/Boise State matchup very closely as this game could be a big determining factor for both teams as far as the trajectory of the rest of their season. Miami vs Florida as the opening game of the season should be a great matchup as well.  There are bound to be upsets, however, I’m not seeing many opportunities for a ranked team being upset. These programs know how important it is to secure their first win, particularly when they start the season ranked, so they typically try to set up their schedule years in advance to be against a team they can run over.
