Football Betting Nirvana, Continued: College Football Betting Week 2 Schedule

“And now for something we hope you’ll really enjoy!” Week 1 NFL Betting is here, and so is College Football Betting Week 2. This is the time of year when everything gets crazy: sportsbooks are in a state of pandemonium as players crash through the doors in droves. Then, once they’ve got everyone signed up, it’s another mad dash for the credit card processors to get the cash loaded up for betting action. Once that’s done, the fun officially begins: you’re now up and running for NFL Football 2009.

Most of this week’s college football betting action happens on Saturday, the typical day for any NCAA football contest. The two exceptions are Clemson at #15 Georgia Tech on Thursday, September 10, at 7:30 PM EST. Note also that the NFL season opener starts an hour later on NBC (Titans vs. Steelers). The next game before College football Saturday starts at 9:00 PM EST on Friday, September 11, with Colorado facing Toledo. After that it’s an express train to Saturday’s college football games, which promise to be just as exciting as last week’s action.

The first college football game on Saturday, Septemer 12, is Syracuse at #7 Penn State, which should be a relatively decisive victory for Penn. Eight other games kick off simultaneously at 12:00 PM, so get your TV ready to do split screen action (or, steal cable from your old lady neighbor Maude who only watches the “Price is Right” during the week).

Games continue to kick off around the clock until 11:00 PM EST. Some of the exciting contests of Week 2 include: Troy at #1 Florida (should be a blowout); #2 Texas at Wyoming; and Vanderbilt at #11 LSU. The only contest in which two nationally ranked teams play starts at 8:00 PM EST on Saturday, September 12, between #3 USC at #8 Ohio State. Perhaps the Buckeyes can upset this tentative #3 ranked team, and push their way up the ladder towards the top 5. Remember, it’s still just week 2, so most of these rankings are somewhat speculative.

Then Sunday brings us the bulk of Week 1 NFL betting action. The Ravens, Saints, and Colts are all favored to win. The rest of the games are a toss up, but there’s money to be made if you get the right line.

The first official Monday Night Football contests are probably the most exciting events of Week 1 NFL football. The smart money is riding on the Chargers to smack the crap out of the Raiders, while Brady and the heavily favored New England Patriots will make mince meat out of a more modest Buffalo Bills squad. The $64,000 question is whether or not the dogs will cover the spread. Oakland might have a chance, while the Bills probably face the stiffer opposition of the evening.
