- The Fresno State Bulldogs are favored by 27.5 points OVER the UConn Huskies.
- The San Jose State Spartans have (-115) odds to cover the 24.5 points spread against the Southern Utah Thunderbirds.
- The UCLA Bruins are 18-point favorites in their meeting against the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors.
LAS VEGAS – With five college football games kicking off the NCAAF season on Saturday, only one game has a single-digit spread with multiple teams being favored by 24+ points.
Four Games With Double-Digit Spreads
There are five games on the schedule for Week 0 of the college football season which begins on Saturday. While it may be an exciting time to have college football back, the games themselves are not expected to be very competitive, at least according to the regulated sports betting sites.
Aside from the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Illinois Fighting Illini game, every game has a double-digit spread with multiple games seeing three-possession favorites.
Fresno State vs UConn Spread Odds
- Fresno State Bulldogs -27.5 -110
- UConn Huskies +27.5 -110
The Fresno State Bulldogs are the biggest favorites of the week at 27.5 points. Although an expected score of 45-17 doesn’t necessarily make for a thrilling matchup to watch.
San Jose State vs Southern Utah Spread Odds
- San Jose State Spartans -24.5 -115
- Southern Utah Thunderbirds+24.5 -105
College football betting sites have an expected score of around 40-17 for this game, making for another anticipated blowout to start off the 2021-2022 season.
The UCLA Bruins and Hawaii Rainbow Warriors will take up the 3:30 p.m. EST time slot in what is, again, not expected to be a close game, as UCLA is favored by 18 points. Lastly, the UTEP Miners are 10-point favorites over the New Mexico State Lobos.
It’s up to the individual bettor to decide if laying the points on these large spreads is worth it, but for general viewing purposes, the game may not be exciting without a little action on the game.
Is It Worth Betting The Moneylines?
In theory, all profit is good profit but it always comes down to risk vs reward when gambling. The San Jose State moneyline odds are unavailable, but Fresno State has a (-5000) line while UCLA is (-900) and UTEP is (-400). Again, it’s ultimately up to the individual sports bettor to consider if a low payout is worth the high risk but maybe parlaying the three games together for (-240) odds could be more enticing.
