Michigan Stadium at nightThe Week 2 2013 college football odds are officially posted, and here at Bankroll Sports, we are going to be looking at some of the best games on the NCAA football lines right off the bat in Week 2 of the season.

Thanks to the fact that this is also the first week of the NFL season, we know that some of the games on the college football schedule are going to be a lot less intriguing than they were in Week 1. We find that out right off the bat on Thursday when the Florida Atlantic Owls travel on the road to the East Carolina Pirates for the first time as members of Conference USA. What we learned last week about the Pirates is what we knew from them last year. This is a team that can fly all over the field with QB Shane Carden calling the shots under center, but it is also a team that is going to be in some trouble on the other side of the field. If FAU can figure out how to score some points in this game, there’s a chance for the outright upset.

Friday’s game isn’t all that intriguing either. Don’t get us wrong. This is an important one for both the Boston College Eagles and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons, but it isn’t a game that is going to be all that thrilling to watch or to bet on. The oddsmakers are having a real tough time lining this one on the college football odds, but the Eagles have come into this week as a three-point favorite in a battle of two of the lesser teams in the ACC. Elsewhere on Friday night, the UCF Knights are giving 24.5 to the FIU Golden Panthers down in South Florida. The Knights opened up the week at -21 and quickly rose up to where they are at right now.

NCAA Football BetDSIAnd that brings us up to Saturday, where it feels like the mass majority of the games at the FBS level don’t even involve a pair of FBS teams playing against each other. The biggest favorite of the bunch in the FBS vs. FCS games are the Clemson Tigers over the South Carolina State Bulldogs. It’s not all that surprising to see the oddsmakers giving South Carolina State a head start of 52.5 points, but is it enough? It’s going to be tough for the Tigers to really get up for this one for sure.

Interestingly enough though, there aren’t all that many games that feature tremendously lopsided college football spreads at the FBS vs. FBS level. The biggest favorite of the bunch in that mix is the LSU Tigers. The Bayou Bengals are coming off of a very impressive win in Arlington over the TCU Horned Frogs, and they are going to be coming back home to Tiger Stadium for the first time this year. They’ve got the UAB Blazers coming to town, and you know that Baton Rouge is going to be rocking at night. The Blazers are getting 34.5. LSU though, has had very little luck covering games against numbers this big, and this could be problem going forward in this game. Still, there’s no doubt that the men in white, gold, and purple are going to be 2-0 when this day is said and done with.

It’s not that every game on the docket stinks, though. There are three tremendous showcase games which are played at 12:00, 4:30, and 8:00 to spread out the day for college football betting fans.

We’ll start in the Sunshine State at high noon, where the Florida Gators are favored by a field goal over the Miami Hurricanes on the road. Florida is one of the squarer teams on the docket, knowing that they are a short road favorite against a team that is unranked (at least according to the AP Poll). However, Miami is hungry for this victory, and Head Coach Al Golden knows that it is one of the biggest spots that his team has ever been in, referring to it as the “biggest game in [his] tenure” at “The U.” This could be the day that RB Duke Johnson becomes a legitimate Heisman Trophy contender for this season in just his sophomore year.

The afternoon features the most important game of the day, as we have another situation where a team is favored by just a field goal at home. The Georgia Bulldogs are in dire need of a victory after getting beaten last week by the aforementioned Clemson Tigers, and they aren’t going to be in for an easy one this time around either. The South Carolina Gamecocks are coming to town, and the Dawgs have actually never beaten SC since QB Aaron Murray came to town three seasons ago. This is the fourth and final chance for UGA to get the job done, and if this one isn’t won, you have to think that the best this team can do is get to the Capital One Bowl this season, barring a huge collapse by the Gamecocks down the line in the SEC season. South Carolina knows that it has a team that can contend for a National Championship though, and this is a glorious opportunity to capitalize and firmly into the Top 5 in the land in both polls.

BetOnline FootballIs the game between the Michigan Wolverines and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish one of the biggest rivalries in college football? That’s the question that has been bantered around all week between these two as they embark upon their last game in this series that will be played in Ann Arbor. It’s a rare game under the lights, and the crowd at the Big House is going to be rocking and rolling for this one. QB Devin Gardner and the Wolverines have high hopes for a National Championship this year and a run at Ohio State for the Big Ten title. Notre Dame though, has won 13 straight regular season games dating back to last season, easily the best mark in the country. The Golden Domers are getting four points, and that’s a scary little number to be getting in a game that could be back and forth the whole way as it was the last time that these two met at Michigan Stadium.

There is an unusually high amount of road favorites in Week 2 on the college football odds. We have already spoken about Florida, but other teams like the Houston Cougars (-3 @ Temple), Cincinnati Bearcats (-8 @ Illinois), Utah State Aggies (-9.5 @ Air Force), Duke Blue Devils (-6 @ Memphis), Texas Longhorns (-7.5 @ BYU Cougars), Bowling Green Falcons (-7.5 @ Kent State), and Arizona Wildcats (-10.5 @ UNLV) are also favored. The biggest road favorites of the weekend are the Oklahoma State Cowboys, though the Pokes are going to want to be careful with this one. They have the Texas San Antonio Roadrunners, who have been wildly successful over the course of their first season and change here at the FBS level. This is the first time that a big time conference team has ever come to the Alamodome, and the student section for this game is going to be delirious. We don’t think that the Roadrunners are winning this game, but there is a good chance that they stick inside of the 26.5-point college football Vegas lines.

‘Totals’ this week are interesting as well. The oddsmakers haven’t really taken any bold steps into the 70s or into the low-40s, but there are some games of note.

One of the lowest ‘totals’ of the weekend pits the Bowling Green Falcons against the Kent State Golden Flashes. Only 45.5 are expected to hit the board in that game, and that is only one of the six games all weekend long that are lined in the 40s. Keep an eye on the clash between the Michigan State Spartans and the South Florida Bulls as well. That game is lined at 44, and it is the lowest mark of the weekend by a relatively big 1.5-point margin. Neither one of these teams showed much of anything offensively last week, and it could be a tough day for both on that side of the ball once again.

The highest ‘total’ of the week is only 67.5. There are plenty of games in the mid-60s, but the highest of the bunch involves the Navy Midshipmen and the Indiana Hoosiers. These two are high flying teams that can score a lot of points, but neither has a defense of any note whatsoever. Still, that’s a lot to ask for a game this early in the season, especially with two clubs who tend to be all over the map in terms of wins and losses. There is a ton of inconsistency on both sides.
