Action Network PRO is ready to dish out picks Saturday of college football Week 1 — including big-time moneyline predictions.

Using expert projections, sharp opinions, big-money bets and more, we'll dive into these Saturday moneyline picks:

  • Northern Illinois vs Boston College, 12 p.m. ET
  • UTSA vs Houston, 7 p.m. ET
  • Toledo vs Illinois, 7:30 p.m. ET

Boston College admittedly opened as a big favorite against NIU, but the Eagles' spread and moneyline prices are moving.

UTSA vs. Houston, meanwhile, is a toss-up game. However, experts and projections see a big edge to bet.

Finally, picks close in Toledo vs. Illinois, where there's betting value to fire on.

Let's dive into the three big moneyline predictions to consider on Saturday of college football Week 1, and the best odds on all three.

Our college football betting data shows 88% of the money bet on the NIU vs. Boston College moneyline is landing on the home team.

However, PRO recommends a moneyline pick on the NIU Huskies Saturday in Week 1.

NIU is attracting 91% of the coin bet in the moneyline market — enough to set off the Big Money tool in PRO.

Projections agree, as the NIU best odds of +280 at FanDuel differ drastically than our fair price of Northern Illinois +211.

There's value on an upset in NIU vs. Boston College Saturday.
