Week 2 College Football Odds & Totals

Wisconsin opened -17 but has been bet up to -20.5 on the latest college football odds board
Each week Maddux Sports will try to point out the lines with the biggest movement in college football, especially for highly regarded games, so you can see which teams have increased value. Don’t forget to check out the always-updating lines at our college football odds page. It’s important to stay current with the numbers, and the betting lines page is helpful to locate a top-notch sportsbook that’s offering a better line for your liking.

Here’s a quick glance at some of the biggest movers:

Wisconsin (-20.5) vs. Oregon State – The Badgers opened at -17 but the line has been steamed up to 20. Russell Wilson looked impressive in Wisconsin’s opener against UNLV, but Oregon State should be a tougher matchup than the Running Rebels. However, the Beavers lost to Sacramento State last week, so you never know.

Kentucky (10 ½) vs. Central Michigan – Sharps have killed this line all week. Kentucky started at -15 ½ but that’s been bet down to 10 ½. Some bettors (whistling inconspicuously) lost a little on the Wildcats against Western Kentucky last week and can understand why wiseguys are fading Kentucky.

Tennessee (-4 ½) vs. Cincinnati – Tennessee opened at -7 ½ but that’s been bet down to 4 ½. The total has been pushed from 51 to 54 as well; bettors seem to expect Cincy to exhibit a decent amount of offense in Knoxville. However, this is still the SEC against the Big East. Stay tuned.

Oregon (-26 ½) vs. Nevada – The Ducks, fresh off their loss to LSU, are getting played heavily by sharps. The line has been steamed from 22 ½ to 26 ½ over the course of the week. The Oregon offense should find more room to work against Nevada. The Wolf Pack had last week off, meaning, they’re opening the season in Eugene with a new quarterback. Have fun, Nevada.

California (-6 ½) at Colorado – The Golden Bears opened at -3 ½ and have been bet up to -6 ½. Cal looked better than expected against Fresno State last week, while the Buffs looked worse than expected at Hawaii. However, this is the home opener for Colorado and playing in Boulder can be tough. The Buffalos are hoping to get revenge for last year’s butt-kicking.

Stanford (-20 ½) at Duke – This line has been steamed from 15 ½ to 20 ½. Insert obligatory smart kids playing football joke here.

Purdue (-1 ½) at Rice – The Boilermakers opened as 2 point road dogs, but over the course of the week, sharps and squares have swung the line around to Purdue -1 ½. Rice gave Texas some trouble for a while, though the Longhorns ultimately wore down the smaller, less talented Conference USA school. Purdue had to fight and claw to put away Middle Tennessee State at home.

Florida (-23 ½) vs. UAB – The Gators have gotten their fair share of action from bettors, moving Florida’s line from -20 ½ to -23 ½. Florida handled their cupcake just fine last week, and Charlie Weis’ influence on the offense will become more pronounced as the season wears on. UAB is no pushover, but they’ll have their hands full in the Swamp.

South Florida (-20) vs. Ball State – The Bulls follow up their week 1 win over Notre Dame with Ball State at home. Sharps have pulled the line back from an opening -23 ½ to the current 20 or 20 ½, depending upon the book. Ball State, a touchdown underdog last week, beat Indiana straight up. It seems the wiseguys are expecting a letdown from South Florida.

Navy (-9 ½) at Western Kentucky – The Midshipmen opened as 12 point road favorites against Western Kentucky, but sharps have pulled that down to 9 ½. As mentioned above, the Hilltoppers gave Kentucky all they wanted last week. It’ll be interesting to see whether Western Kentucky is that good or Kentucky is that bad. Probably some of both.
