  • Week 1 of the 2021 college football season continues on Thursday, Sept. 2 with five big matchups.
  • According to our PRO betting tools, sharp bettors are getting down on two of Thursday night's games, including one spread and one over/under.
  • Below we break down tonight's college football odds, including how professionals are betting South Florida vs. NC State and East Carolina vs. Appalachian State.

The beauty of college football is the sheer number of games that it offers for fans and sports bettors to enjoy.

However, having a deep understanding of every college football Division I program can be a tall task, especially when staring at a loaded slate of matchups at the beginning of the season.

But for those feeling a little behind the college football betting 8-ball this season — fear not!

The Action Network’s College Football PRO Report was developed for bettors of all levels with the goal of tracking and summarizing, in real-time, five key value indicators so bettors can quickly analyze an entire board of games and pinpoint the best available wagers.

For this reason, there are often times in which there are no games worth betting via this tool. Remember, the purpose of our PRO Report is to find value, not to simply spit out picks for those jonesing for action.

However, while tonight’s college football slate is just six games deep, there are two games, including South Florida vs. NC State and East Carolina vs. Appalachian State showing as very savvy bets, so much so that sharps have all taking significant positions on both matchups.

Let’s take a deeper dive into how professionals are betting Thursday night’s college football slate.
