Now that we’ve seen everyone in action at least once, we have a better feel for teams. Although many of the top teams in the country played a “cupcake”, it still gives us a better understanding of each squad. After looking at the Week 2 slate of games, we’ve come up with a couple of sure-betting winners for you. Let’s take a look at those games, and we’ll give you our NCAA Football Betting predictions.
Sure Winners For Week 2 of the 2022 Season | College Football Betting Picks
USC @ Stanford (+9.5)
Whenever Stanford isn’t highly ranked, the Cardinal always seems to pull off a huge upset at least one time during the season. The USC Trojans are one of the top teams in the country, and with Utah’s loss at Florida, the Trojans know that they now have the inside track at a playoff berth.
David Shaw was once thought to be one of the next hot, young NFL coaches. Since Stanford has hit hard times over the past few seasons, Shaw could actually be on the hot seat this season. His squad had a big win over Colgate in Week 1 by a score of 41-10.
USC and their loaded offense took it to Rice by a score of 66-14. USC put up over 500 yards of offense and was very balanced, as over 300 was in the air and over 200 on the ground. USC’s defense is the big question mark this season, but they did hold an under-manned Rice squad to just 14 points.
Even though Shaw has always seemed to have USC’s number, this squad isn’t what Shaw has had in the past. Lincoln Riley has turned the Trojans into an offensive powerhouse, and Stanford won’t have enough to stop the machine. USC rolls big in this one and wins by at least three touchdowns. Go big on USC!
Wake Forest @ Vanderbilt (-7)
Wake Forest is a sneaky pick to win the ACC this season. The Deacons are no longer the doormat in the ACC, and they’ve had a lot of success over the past few seasons. Speaking of doormats, Vanderbilt has been the doormat over the past few seasons in the SEC. The Commodores program has been one of the worst programs in the country, but with a coaching change, they look like they’re headed in the right direction.
Wake Forest will take a trip to Nashville on Saturday. Vandy already has two games under their belts, as they’ve had two big victories over Hawaii and Elon. In the first two games, Vanderbilt has established the run, as they’re nearly averaging 300 rushing yards per game. Look for them to try and do the same against Wake Forest.
The Demon Deacons destroyed an overmatched VMI team, so it was hard to see what they’re really made of. They did only give up 214 yards of offense in the victory, though. We know that they’ll have a very balanced offense and will make things tough on a Vandy defense that has given up over 400 yards of offense in each of its first two games.
While everyone would love to see Vanderbilt become relevant again in the college football landscape, we just can’t get on board quite yet. If Vanderbilt was giving up big offensive yards to Hawaii and Elon, what will Wake Forest’s offense do to them? We think that Vanderbilt will be able to hang around and keep the game close; the Demon Deacons will pull away at the end. Wake Forest wins by 14.
