With week 0 or whatever that was called last weekend is over, it is time for some real football action. This week I have 6 college football picks to get us back into plus money. Here are The Red Beard: College Football Picks Week 1.
Oklahoma State vs. Central Michigan
Thursday night offers some good matchups to watch. However there is only one number that stands out to me. That number is Oklahoma State as 20.5 point favorites over Central Michigan.
Coming into this season Oklahoma State is ranked #12 in the top 25. I am looking for them to come out week 1 and do what top 25 teams do to teams such as Central Michigan; dominate.
Oklahoma State should be able to cover this number easily, yet be careful as this number rises. My advice, do not take anything above -23.5. I absolutely love this number at the 20.5 I got it at. Expect to see a 45-7 win for Oklahoma St.
Saturday 09/03/22 College Football Picks
For Saturday’s slate, the first week we get a chance to see the big name schools we have been waiting for. I am going to stay away from sides completely and focus on 4 overs.
Florida vs. Utah
The over I am most confident in is the Florida v Utah at Over 51 points. Florida has a quarterback that some sharp bettors are taking for the Heisman this year. I do not see a blow out and I am hoping for a shoot out instead of a defensive battle. Look for this game to end 38-28, Florida winning. I would take this over up to 53.
Alabama vs. Utah State
Next over I am taking, is Alabama v Utah State Over 62.5. No doubt in my mind Alabama wins this game by 28 points or more. I would be wary of this number jumping over 63. The final score for this game as I see it is Alabama winning 56-10. Alabama offense is unstoppable until the 4th quarter when the back ups get some playing time. Hopefully by then we are within a touchdowns reach of the over 62.5.
Notre Dame vs. Ohio State
Notre Dame and Ohio State will go at it this Saturday. The spread in this one is 17.5 which I believe is too high to take. With a new head coach and quarterback, I have no idea what to truly expect from Notre Dame. I am taking the Over 58.5 and pray Ohio State can put up 42 or more points on their own. I am more than confident if that happens Notre Dame can cover the other 17 needed for the over to hit. Ohio State 52 Notre Dame 17. I would take this over up to 60.5.
Oklahoma vs. UTEP
The Last bet I am taking for Saturday is Oklahoma v UTEP Over 57. I am nervous about this one only because of Oklahoma’s inconsistency last year at putting points on the board. But against the Mighty Minors I expect 3rd year quarterback for Oklahoma to come out the gates swinging. He had Heisman like expectations put on him as a freshman he still have not lived up too. Im calling this year as that year for him to be looked at as elite. Oklahoma wins 63-0 and hit the over by them self.
Florida State vs. LSU
I am going to keep the over train rolling on Sunday, my last sunday without the beloved NFL. I will take the Florida State v LSU Over 51.5 as possibly the easiest pick of the weekend. This over will be covered by the half. Both teams have elite players and offensive schemes that are built to put the ball in the end zone. Neither of these teams have defenses that would be considered “shut down” in any football circle. LSU wins a close one in a shootout 48-45.
