Sports betting action on college football is less than a month away with games starting on Thursday, September 3rd.
It doesn’t take long for great games to be on the online sports betting board in the opening week. Here is a look at some of the key games for the first week of college football sports betting at the sportsbook.
Sports betting begins in college football on Thursday, September 3rd with South Carolina at North Carolina State. This is a very interesting ESPN game that has Steve Spurrier’s squad facing a tough road game at Tom O’Brien’s NC State Wolfpack. The late game on ESPN is another great early season sports betting matchup as Oregon is at Boise State. The Ducks could be a Top 10 sports betting team but not many teams go into Boise and win. The Broncos could be looking at a possible unbeaten season if they can get by the Ducks in this online sports betting game.
Saturday’s sports betting action has a lot of good games including an interesting one as Ohio State takes on Navy. The Buckeyes will have to avoid looking ahead to their huge game the following week against USC in online sports betting. There is no question that one of the best games of the week in is Georgia at Oklahoma State. Georgia lost a lot of talent but Mark Richt always seems to reload at Georgia and if they can win their opener on the road it would be a huge step for them in the online sports betting world.
Another interesting game has Missouri playing Illinois in St. Louis. Juice Williams is the quarterback that will get the attention in this sports betting matchup. Missouri lost a lot in the off-season so it will be interesting to see how well they reload. Another interesting sports betting game at the online sportsbook has BYU playing Oklahoma. The Sooners are considered a national power with quarterback Sam Bradford but BYU has a good quarterback of their own in Max Hall.
The game of the week in sports betting at the sportsbook in college football for the first week is Alabama vs. Virginia Tech in Atlanta. The winner of this game stays in the national title hunt while the loser is probably out. That is how important this game is in sports betting to start the season.
Also, don’t forget that the opening college football sports betting week at the online sportsbook has games on Sunday and Monday as well including Miami at Florida State.
