College Football Week 2 Sure Losers and Predictions

College Football Week 2 Sure Losers and Predictions

Written by on September 6, 2017

Week 1 of the college football season delivered all that we have come to expect from this sport, with great games and shocking surprises to be found all over the place. College Football Week 2 sees most of the bigger teams take things a little easier against lesser opposition, so finding sure losers is a little easier this week. Rather than picking those games, I am going to go a little off the beaten path to find match-ups that look as though they are going to be close in the betting odds for Week 2. These are the games where a team is favored by 7 points or less. I have definite ideas about who I think will win these games, and the odds should be good enough that you still get a decent chunk of change in your pocket with a winning ticket.

College Football Week 2 Sure Losers and Predictions

Ohio Bobcats vs. Purdue Boilermakers

I believe that this is a real opportunity to cash a nice winning ticket, as the Purdue Boilermakers are in as a 4-point favorite, and I think they are destined to lose this one. Over the past 3 seasons, the Boilermakers have gone 9-2 ATS as the underdog, while Purdue are just 3-10 ATS in home games during that same period. Ohio hammered Hampton 59-0 in Week 1, and while the Boilermakers lost, they did put in a pretty solid performance against Louisville. I think that Ohio can win this one straight up, but if you want to play it a little safe, take Ohio against the spread. College Football Week 2 Pick: Ohio Bobcats

East Carolina at West Virginia NCAAF Odds & Expert Pick

Kansas Jayhawks vs. Central Michigan Chippewas

These two teams have met twice over the last few years, and it was Kansas who came away with the win both times. Both teams put up opening week wins, but Central Michigan appear to be up against it this week given that they only have 1 win in their last 6 on the road. Kansas come into this game as a 6-point favorite, and I think they might be able to cover, as I have them winning this one by a TD. This one might prove to be a bit of a nail-biter, but Kansas will come away with the win. College Football Week 2 Pick: Kansas Jayhawks

Michigan State Spartans vs. Western Michigan Broncos

The loser of this one may well depend on how you are planning on playing the game. If you are looking at betting ATS, then Western Michigan may be the way to go. Over the past 3 seasons, they are 10-3 ATS in road games, which includes going 8-1 ATS in September games. They are 6 ½ point underdogs for this one, and might be able to keep it close enough to cover. That said, I still believe that Michigan State Spartans will come up with the win. They may not be the same team that they were a couple of seasons back, but they are still good enough to get the job done at home. College Football Week 2 Pick: Michigan State Spartans College Football Week 2: I still believe that Michigan State Spartans will come up with the win.

Northwestern Wildcats vs. Duke Blue Devils

Another game that the bookies have as being a tight one, with Northwestern favored by 3 points on the road. The Wildcats have dominated this match-up, winning 8 of the last 10 meetings against Duke. They have also been a very solid bet on the road, going 9-4 SU in their last 13 games away from home. I am actually a little surprised that the bookies have this one so tight, as I think the Wildcats can win this one quite handily. Not only will I be playing them SU, I will also have them ATS in this one. There are several different ways that you can play these picks. The easy way to go would be to just play them all as singles, but you might also consider putting together what would be a very profitable parlay ticket. You can hedge your bets a little by putting together the parlay ticket in a round-robin style so that you can still cash out even if one of the picks falls short.
