Week 1 College Football Top 10 Teams to Bet On the 2022 Season
The Tide should have a relatively easy opener against Utah State. Alabama has arguably the most talented roster in America. Bryce Young will start his campaign to become only the second person to win the Heisman Trophy twice.
2. Ohio State
The Ohio State Buckeyes decided to challenge themselves when they agreed to play Notre Dame to start the season. This one will be in Columbus, so they’ll have the home-field advantage. We’re anxious to see the new-look defense under the direction of Jim Knowles.
The Georgia Bulldogs will begin the defense of their National Championship in Atlanta against their former defensive coordinator, Dan Lanning, and his Oregon Ducks. This will be a stiff test for the Bulldogs, and they’ll have many defensive pieces to replace.
The Tigers are looking to rebound from a disappointing 2021 season. They’ll have a conference game for their season opener, as they’ll play Georgia Tech in Atlanta. The Yellow Jackets hung tough against Clemson last season.
5. Notre Dame
Marcus Freeman will make his head coaching debut in a hostile environment as the Notre Dame Fighting Irish travel to Columbus to take on Ohio State. The Buckeyes have one of the nation’s most dangerous offenses, so we’re eager to see how Freeman plans to slow them down.
6. Texas A&M
Jimbo Fisher has this season’s top recruiting class, so the expectations are high in College Station. They should have an easy one this week, as they host Sam Houston State.
The Utes travel across the country to play the Florida Gators. Kyle Whittingham has a lot of returning starters, and the Utah Utes are looking for a playoff spot. We’ll see if they can handle the rigors of playing on the road in a hostile SEC environment.
The Michigan Wolverines host Colorado State at the Big House. Harbaugh has a veteran offensive line that will showcase a running-style offense. We’ll see how the defense looks after losing many key players to the NFL.
Let the Brent Venables era begin in Norman. We’ll see how the new-look Oklahoma Sooners come out. They host UTEP, so this should be a fairly easy one to start off.
The Baylor Bears are a trendy pick to win the Big 12 this season. They have plenty of experienced players returning. They should have a cakewalk in the season opener as they host Albany.
Top 25 Betting Analysis
- Utah @ Florida
The Utes are favored by two points in this one. Even though it’s a road game against a perennial SEC powerhouse, we still like the Utes to win and cover. This will be Billy Napier’s head coaching debut at Florida, and the Gators still have some work to do. Take the Utes in this one!
