College Football Week 2 ATS Picks and Winning Favorites

College Football Week 2 ATS Picks and Winning Favorites

Written by on September 4, 2017

You forget how much you miss college football until Week 1 begins, and all the madness starts to flow once again and this allow us to start adding the latest ATS picks after the first week finishes. The opening week was brilliant, as we were treated to upsets, great games, and the idea that all the things we though we knew about what was going to happen this season may be way off. Alabama once again look like the team to beat after a dominant defensive showing against the Florida State Seminoles. But now, we head into College Football Week 2. The Michigan Wolverines showed that they have reloaded to near perfection, blowing out the Florida Gators in Week 1, and while the Georgia Bulldogs may have lost their starting QB, Jacob Eason, for an extended period, they look to have replaced him with a 5-star gem in the form of Jake Fromm. How will things play out in Week 2? Let’s see if we can make some bold predictions with the current college football betting odds for Week 2 provided by MyBookie.

Iowa Hawkeyes vs. Iowa State Cyclones

Week 2 of the college football season features a lot of the bigger teas going against smaller opposition, but that is certainly not the case with this in-state rivalry. Both teams go their seasons off to a winning start, and both covered the spread in Week 1. While it has been the Cyclones who have dominated ATS versus Iowa in recent years, I am looking at what the Hawkeyes have done recently, which is to go 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games. This has all the makings of a TD game, and I am putting things in the favor of the Hawkeyes, which means a win and a cover.

Indiana Hoosiers vs. Virginia Cavaliers ATS Picks

When / Where: September 09, 2017, 3:30 PM ET – Scott Stadium Live Stream: NCAA Live College Football Week 2 Odds: Indiana -3

Forecast Weather

  • Clear: 22°C/72°F
  • Humidity: 44%
  • Precipitation: 0%
  • Cloud Cover: 8%
  • Wind: 6 mph NE
  • Stadium Type: Ope
When you look at the final score of Indiana’s opening game of the regular season, you don’t get to see the whole picture. Yes, they lost 49-21 to Ohio State, but this was a game that Indiana was very much in until later in the 3rd quarter. This Hoosiers team is going to cause lesser teams a whole lot of trouble this season, as they are playing an upbeat style of offense that is going to be tough to stop. The Hoosiers have gone 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games on the road, and I think they can comfortably improve that record this weekend in Virginia.

Oklahoma Sooners vs. Ohio State Buckeyes

When / Where: September 09, 2017, 7:30 PM ET – Ohio Stadium Live Stream: NCAA Live College Football Week 2 Odds: Ohio State -9

Weather Forecast

  • Clear: 18°C/64°F
  • Humidity: 59%
  • Precipitation: 1%
  • Cloud Cover: 15%
  • Wind: 8 mph NNE
  • Stadium Type: Open
Both of these teams did what they we expected to do in Week 1, although it’s fair to say that one of them made it look easier than the other. The Oklahoma Sooners laid an absolute beating on the UTEP Miners, coming away with a 56-7 win, while the Buckeyes took 30 minutes to finally get rolling in a 49-21 win over the Indiana Hoosiers that was not as convincing as the final score might suggest. College Football Week 2 ATS Picks: Oklahoma have now covered in each of their last 5 games, and have also won their last 5 on the road. Oklahoma have now covered in each of their last 5 games, and have also won their last 5 on the road. This is not to suggest that they will spring the upset here, but I do believe that they will manage to cover the spread.

Stanford Cardinal vs. USC Trojans

When / Where: September 09, 2017, 8:30 PM ET – Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Live Stream: NCAA Live College Football Week 2 Odds: USC -6 Weather Forecast 
  • Clear: 23°C/73°F
  • Humidity: 71%
  • Precipitation: 1%
  • Cloud Cover: 0%
  • Wind: 5 mph WSW
  • Stadium Type: Open
The danger with heaping praise on a team before the season starts is that they will start to believe their own press and come out a little too confident. That may well explain what happened to USC, as they struggled to get a 49-31 win over Western Michigan in Week 1. Defensively, the Trojans looked very soft, which is not good news when they are about to face a Stanford team that pounded Rice 62-7. I was one who was a little skeptical about all the preseason love being sent the way of USC, and while they still might prove me wrong, I think they may be in trouble this coming weekend against a very good Stanford team.
