Welcome to Week 0.
After a long eight-month break from the gridiron, college football makes its much anticipated return to our TV screens and betting cards today.
The action begins with Nebraska vs. Illinois, UCLA vs. Hawaii, and Fresno State vs. UConn early in the day before rolling into Alcorn State vs. NC Central, UTEP vs. New Mexico State, and San Jose State vs. Southern Utah later in the night.
While this week pales in comparison to what is to come next week, it gives us the perfect opportunity to ease into the new season and make some money along the way. After all, football is football, right?
Our staff of college football writers attacked this Week 0 slate from every angle.
Looking for guides to each individual game? Check. Best bets from our entire staff? Check. A look into our futures portfolio? Check. Want to bet a UTEP team total? We even have you covered there — twice. Find anything you need to bet today’s games below.
So, sit back, relax with a nice cup of coffee, and enjoy some football for the first time since January.
