Some great games are on tap early in the season in college football online gambling. Here is a look at just a few of the big ones for Week 1.
Internet gambling companies will be very happy about one of the games on Thursday, September 2nd as Pittsburgh visits Utah. This is a great matchup of potential Top 25 teams. The Panthers will be the favorites in the Big East this season while Utah is ranked in the Top 25 to start the season. Pittsburgh usually struggles on offense but they have an exciting running back in Dion Lewis. Utah returns quarterback Jordan Wynn who had a big game in Utah’s win over California in their bowl game. The Utes should be a small favorite in this opener.
Saturday, September 4th is the day that college football really gets going. One very interesting inter-conference matchup has LSU playing North Carolina. The Tar Heels are going to be great on defense but how far they go this season will depend upon their offense as either T.J. Yates or Bryn Renner needs to play well. LSU is always good and they can win any game. This game will be at the Georgia Dome which means LSU could be favored even though North Carolina might be ranked higher in the polls. It should be a great game on ABC television regardless of who is favored. Another game on Saturday that will get attention in online gambling has Oregon State vs. TCU on ESPN. Both teams should be in the national rankings but TCU will be favored.
Not to be left out of the opening weekend of college football is perhaps the biggest game of the season for Boise State as they are at Virginia Tech on Monday, September 6th. If Boise State wins this game that can be seen on ESPN they could be playing for the national title if they go unbeaten. Winning won’t be easy though as Virginia Tech returns quarterback Tyrod Taylor and running backs Darren Evans and Ryan Williams. Boise returns 19 starters but winning at Virginia Tech is just not easy to do. Technically the game is at FedEx Field in Washington, D.C. so the home field advantage will be with the Hokies.
