With college football Week 0 just two and a half weeks away from beginning, it’s time to start thinking about what teams you think will be stirring up the pot this year. I bring to you some of the team win/loss futures that I like this upcoming college football season. Side note: some of them are extremely biased. Gamble Responsibly.

Big Ten: Penn State Nittany Lions: u9 (-125)
This one is not biased as I grew up a Penn State fan because my grandpa had season tickets. Went to games every year in bumble fuck, Pennsylvania and always had a blast.
Unfortunately, setting the o/u at 9 here is just too high, especially in a very good Big 10 conference. Penn State also has a pretty tough schedule, some of their key games being against Auburn, Iowa, Ohio State, and Illinois. I just can’t see James Franklin and the Nittany Lions taking 9 or more games.
ACC: Virginia Tech Hokies: o7 (+105)
The Hokies were a very frisky team last year and are poised to do the same thing this year. There could be some good value here at +105.
The Hokies started off the year hot winning 4 of 5 to start it off, and then they fell off a bit. The only really tough games for the Hokies this year will be non-conference games against West Virginia and Notre Dame. VT does not play Clemson or Florida State this year. The rest of their games are all winnable to me besides maybe Miami.
Big 12: Kansas State Wildcats: u5.5 (+120)
Kansas State is one of those classic teams that you just always bet against. It’s such a cop-out move to take an Oklahoma or a Baylor spread when they are playing K-State, but it always hits.
The only games that I can really see Kansas State for sure winning are against Southern Illinois and Nevada. They also have a chance against Kansas, as that game usually goes either way. But bottom line here is, they stink.
SEC: Mississippi State Bulldogs: o6 (-113)
Honestly most of this bet revolves around Mike Leach. Electric football coach. Air Raid offense. Quirky dude. What’s not to love here.
Their schedule is definitely not EASY as there are a couple of very good SEC teams, but the good thing about the SEC is that there is also a lot of bad teams. I think the bulldogs win 7 here but they can definitely overachieve and win 8-9 games this season.
PAC-12: Colorado Buffaloes: o4.5 (-113)
This one is where most of the bias comes in from me. I went to school at Colorado, been a fan for quite some time now and am always hopeful when it comes to their football program. They are in the midst of a QB change, but both options are solid. The Buffs have many returning players this year and are coming off of a very respectable season last year.
This team won 4 games last year in a 5 game season! They also lost a bowl game but thats neither here nor there. Texas A&M, Minnesota, Oregon, and Washington are the only teams that the Buffs have a small chance of beating. The rest are fair game. This team can win 5-6 games without even sweating. I’m putting all my money on this bet.
Not gonna explain myself on these ones, they’re just college football teams I like and know will dominate in their conferences (independence) this year:
Utah State Aggies: o3.5 (-134)
Toledo Rockets: o8.5 (+100)
Liberty Flames: o9 (-125)
