2022 College Football SU Betting Picks for the Top Weekend Games of Week 1

2022 College Football SU Betting Picks for the Top Weekend Games of Week 1

Many people talk about the Christmas holiday season being the most wonderful time of the year, but for me, and I’m sure many others like me, it’s the start of football season that is the best part of the year. We got a small glimpse of college football this past weekend, with a few games played in what is now known as Week 0. This weekend is when the real funs starts, though, as we will have a full slate of games and all the big guns coming out to play. Narrowing down all those games to just a few picks is tough, but for the purposes of this piece, I am going to focus on some of the bigger games, as well as those that are considered maybe too close to call by the bookies. With that in mind, let’s get to our SU picks for college football Week 1 so you don’t miss your chance to bet against the College Football Odds.

NCAAF Week 1 SU Betting Picks | 2022 College Football Analysis

Penn State Nittany Lions over Purdue Boilermakers

While much of our focus is going to be on the Saturday games, we couldn’t let this Thursday matchup pass bye without making a pick. This is a tricky start to the season for Penn State, going on the road to face a Purdue team that has built something of a reputation for coming up with big wins against the better teams in college football. You get an idea of just how tricky this one is, with Penn State in as a 3 ½ point road favorite. The bookies seem to think this one will be close, and while I tend to agree, I think Penn State gets the SU win.

Georgia Bulldogs over Oregon Ducks

This game is actually billed as a neutral site matchup, but since it’s being played at the Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta, it is certainly going to feel like a home game for the Dawgs. The reigning champions lost a lot of talent to the NFL Draft this offseason, but given how good they are at recruiting, we shouldn’t see too much of a drop-off this season. The Georgia Bulldogs are clear favorites for this one, and while the value is not great, they might be a good parlay pick.

Utah Utes over Florida Gators

This is another big one, with a very good Utah Utes team hitting the road in Week 1 to take on SEC opposition in the form of the Florida Gators. The Utes made it to the Big Ten Championship Game last season, losing to Michigan, and should be in the thick of the conference battle once again. In Florida, the Gators will have a new head coach on the sidelines as they look to return to prominence in the SEC. I’m not sure that happens overnight, though, and I think the Gators could be in trouble here.

Ohio State Buckeyes over Notre Dame Fighting Irish

This is another one of the big marquee games in Week 1, with Notre Dame starting their season out on the road at the Ohio State Buckeyes, a team that a lot of people think are in contention to win the National Championship. This is a game that could very much set the tone of the season for both teams, so it goes without saying that it’s a big one. I still think that Ohio State are a little too good to lose here, so I gotta take them for the win.
