  • Strong winds were not very prevalent in Week 1, but both Minnesota-Fresno State (10:30 p.m. ET) and Oregon State-Hawaii (12 a.m.) are boasting 15+ mph winds as well as falling over/unders.

After a relatively calm start to the college football season that’s featured just five games with winds of 10+ mph, Week 2 is throwing us a bone. Thirteen games on Saturday are forecasted to have double-digit average wind speeds, including two games with winds of 15+ mph.

These aren’t Hurricane Dorian-esque winds, but they’re certainly strong enough to impact the flight of a football. These forecasts may not entice casual fans very much, but they’re certainly noteworthy when it comes to betting.

Minnesota at Fresno State

  • Odds: Minnesota -3, Total 46
  • 10:30 p.m. ET (CBS Sports Network)
  • 15 mph wind

Windy games on the west coast are not common, but tonight’s Minnesota-Fresno State game is an exception. With 15 mph winds, the kickers and quarterbacks on the Golden Gophers and Bulldogs will have their hands full.
