Bet on NCAAFCollege football odds will be set for an attractive opening night of the college football betting season with 2 ESPN feature games to begin a great weekend of action! College football odds handicappers will have a total of 5 college football betting matchups to chose from on opening night with numerous bowl contenders on the board.
The first game to look at against the college football odds is the ESPN opening game between the South Carolina Gamecocks and the North Carolina State Wolfpack, who opened as a 4-point home favorite on the college football betting board. The Wolfpack finished strong last year against the college football betting lines to finish with a bowl game as head coach Tom Obrien finally saw success in his 2nd year as coach. The Wolfpack are being touted as a potential sleeper against the college football odds in the Atlantic Coast Conference. South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier is yet to bring the Gamecocks to the promised land as begins his 5th year at the helm with an unremarkable record of 28-22 straight up.
The battle of Utah will take place Thursday against the college football odds as the Utah State Aggies will meet the host Utah Utes, who opened as a 20.5 chalk on the college football odds board. Utah State has been a hopeless team for what seems like forever while the Utes are coming off an epic season that ended with a BCS bowl win and cover against powerful Alabama. While the Utes are not likely to match their success of 2008 against the college football odds they are still expected to contend for the Western Athletic Conference title.
A game that is eagerly anticipated against the college football odds Thursday night is the ESPN nightcap on the famed “blue carpet” of Boise State as the Broncos host the Oregon Ducks. Oregon is being touted as a national title contender while few teams are better at home against the college football odds than Boise State, who is expected to again contend for a bowl berth. Also on the card for Thursday is Troy at Bowling Green, and North Texas at Ball State.
