Football Games That Aren’t Super Bowl That You Can Bet On


Washington at Rutgers

Washington -29.5Analysis: The high-scoring Washington Huskies (12-2) had phenomenal 2016 campaign and they’ll get a real patsy in their 2017 opener as they take on a pitiful Rutgers program that went 2-10 last season.

Maryland at Texas

Texas -15When: Saturday, September 2, 2017Analysis: The six-win Maryland Terrapins will have their hands full against Tom Herman’s new-look Texas Longhorns.

Stanford vs. Rice (in Sydney, Australia)

When: Saturday, September 2, 2017Stanford -32.5Analysis: The 10-win Stanford Cardinal won’t have any problem beating the 3-win Rice Owls, but damn, 32.5 points is a ton!

Ohio State at Indiana

Thursday, August 31 2017Odds: Ohio State -18.5Analysis: If the Buckeyes (11-2) don’t have a better game plan than relying on quarterback J.T. to do everything for them next season, they could struggle early, even against an Indiana team that went 6-7 in 2016.

Florida at Michigan

When: Saturday, September 2, 2017Odds: Michigan -7Analysis: The Florida Gators (9-4) are touchdown underdogs against a Michigan tem that I expect to challenge for a berth in the four-team playoffs.

BYU vs. LSU (in Houston, TX)

When: Saturday, September 2, 2017LSU -14Analysis: Things are looking up at LSU (8-4), but the Tigers will have their hands full against an explosive BYU Cougars team that won nine games in 2016.

Alabama vs. Florida State (in Atlanta, GA)

When: Saturday, September 2, 2017Alabama -4Analysis: I saved the best for last as national championship runner-up Alabama takes on a Florida State team that has a quarterback in Deondre Francois that could make them pay big, much like Clemson superstar Deshaun Watson did in the national championship.
