  • Collin Wilson uses his betting power ratings to project odds for every Week 2 college football game.
  • Use these to find value on the opening point spreads posted Sunday afternoon.

College football’s first week is in the books!

Well, we’ve still got Oklahoma-Houston and Notre Dame-Louisville game to complete, but that will not stop oddsmakers from posting Week 2 odds.

Every Sunday morning, The Action Network will provide point spread projections for the following week. Some oddsmakers will shade spreads in anticipation of a swarm of money on one side.

Our projections are the raw number from the The Action Network power ratings built as result of injury, box score and advanced stats.

Look here in preparation for openers and follow me in The Action Network App when I bet these lines on Sunday afternoon.

A negative number indicates the home team is favored by that many points; inverse for a positive number.

Week 2 Scheduling Notes

  • UAB, Tulane, Minnesota, Oregon State, Rutgers, Army, Central Michigan and BYU all have extra rest heading into their road trip.
  • Clemson, Colorado, FIU, Georgia Tech, Michigan State, San Jose State, UConn and Utah will host games on extra rest.
  • New Mexico State, Eastern Michigan, Syracuse and Tulsa will be on back-to-back travel.
