Written by on June 27, 2017

The college football offseason always feels a little too long, but we are now just a couple of months away from the start of what should be another great year. In the weeks leading up to the Week 1 kick-off, we will have all manner of different articles and predictions to help you get ready for the madness that is sure to follow. Today, we are going to take a look at the opening week of the 2017 NCAAF season by looking at some of the top games on tap. With the introduction of the playoff system, the days of starting the season with games against punching bag opponents are gone, which means we have some excellent games to wager on in Week 1. Let’s take a quick look at some of the best NCAAF betting games that are going to be available.

Analyzing The Complete Betting Guide & Favorites For 2017 NCAAF Week 1


Alabama Crimson Tide Vs Florida State Seminoles

Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide are sure to still be reeling after losing the National Championship Game to Clemson last season in a game that was an instant classic. I’m sure that is something that they will shake off very quickly once they get back on the field, and they are going to need to, as they will be heading to Georgia to face the Florida State Seminoles in a neutral field game. These are possible two of the best teams in the country, so we should be in for a treat here.

Florida Gators Vs Michigan Wolverines

The Wolverines are sure to be coming into this season with a chip on their shoulder, as they still feel that they got the wrong end of the stick in their game versus Ohio State. They will have the opportunity to make an immediate statement in Week 1 if they can take down the Florida Gators in a neutral field game that will be held in Arlington. Florida are going to have a tough time defending the SEC East this season, and a win here would be a real confidence builder.

Virginia Tech Hokies Vs West Virginia Mountaineers

These two teams will start the season in the top 25, and whether they go up or down will likely depend on how quickly their new QB’s adapt to life in the starting role. The Mountaineers have been a team that has been consistently good on the offensive side of the football, so you imagine that they will be able to handle the change, but they are going to be seriously tested against a very good Virginia Tech team. These two may not be huge names in college football, but this is going to be a game worth watching. It might be possible that we get a poor start from the Yellow Jackets team as they did last season.

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Vs Tennessee Volunteers

This game is going to be all about seeing how these two teams respond after down years. There was an awful lot of hype surrounding Tennessee last season, and it’s fair to say that they never came anywhere close to living up to it. They have lost a lot of their best talent to the NFL, and could be in some serious trouble this year, especially if they get off to a poor start against a Yellow Jackets team who were poor last season. This game features a pair of coaches who could quickly find themselves on the hot seat if things don’t get better this year. Ann awful lot of pressure on both teams in this one.

Western Michigan Broncos Vs USC Trojans

It wasn’t so very long ago that we would have looked at this match-up as being totally one-sided in the favor of the Trojans. USC are clawing their way back after numerous NCAAF violations, and there are a lot of college football fans who believe that this might be their year to get back in the spotlight. They will start their season with a game against the Western Michigan Broncos, a team that managed to go unbeaten before losing a close one to Wisconsin in the Cotton Bowl. This is a game that USC would be expected to win, but it may well be a great battle.
