We have a long way to go before we see the National Champions crowned at the end of this season, but there are a few teams who made a big statement in the opening week of the season. Perhaps the biggest statement of all was the one that the Georgia Bulldogs made, as they absolutely destroyed a ranked Oregon Ducks team to show that taking their title is not going to be easy. We also saw a couple of teams survive tough tests in Week 1, with Ohio State not at their best but still managing to pull out the win over Notre Dame. The big shots basically all started with a win, but will that carry over into Week 2 of the season? That remains to be seen, but for now, we are going to make a few O/U picks for Week 2 of the college football season. Let’s get right to it so you can go ahead and place your bets against the NCAAF Odds.
NCAAF Week 2 O/U Betting Picks | 2022 College Football Analysis
Alabama Crimson Tide at Texas Longhorns – OVER 61 ½
There are going to be a lot of fans who look at this game as a preview of sorts, with the Texas Longhorns set to make the jump from the Big 12 to the SEC. This matchup will give them some idea of what they are going to be up against in the near future, while also giving the Longhorns a look at how much work needs to be done to be competitive in the strongest conference in college football. Both teams opened the season with dominating wins, but those were both games that Alabama and Texas were expected to win. While each team is trending toward the UNDER of late, there are signs that this one might go OVER. 5 of the last 6 that Alabama has played versus the Big 12 have gone OVER, while the same is true with Texas, who has seen 8 of their last 12 versus the SEC go OVER.
Washington State Cougars at Wisconsin Badgers – UNDER 46 ½
Here is another game where we have both teams coming in at 1-0 after wins in Week 1. Washington State beat Idaho 24-17, with the point total on that one going UNDER. We had the Wisconsin Badgers cruise to victory in their season opening, winning 38-0 and seeing the point total also go UNDER. The last meeting between these teams was a higher scoring affair, but I think we get back to more of a defensive battle here. Washing State has now seen 5 of their last 6 games played in the month of September go UNDER, while 10 of the last 14 games that Wisconsin has played at home on a Saturday have also gone UNDER.
Kansas Jayhawks at West Virginia Mountaineers – OVER 57 ½
Kansas opened their season with a blowout win over Tennessee Tech, covering the spread and seeing the point total go OVER in the process. West Virginia got into a bit of a slugfest with the Pitt Panthers, losing 38-31 in what was a hotly contested matchup. That all means that Kansas has now seen 14 of their last 20 games go OVER, while also seeing 11 of their last 16 versus the Big 12 go the same route. 5 of the last 6 meetings between these two teams have gone OVER, while the Mountaineers have seen 12 of their last 18 games starting as a favorite go that route too.
