No. Alabama opened the season as a 42-point favorite against Utah State, but the Crimson Tide had no trouble covering the lead in a 55-0 blowout. They will look for another decisive win when they travel to Texas on Saturday in the Week 2 college football schedule. Alabama is a 20-point favorite in the latest Week 2 college football odds at Caesars Sportsbook, while that plus/minus is 64.5. Which side of the spread and total should you bet with your Week 2 college football bets?

Texas got off to a good start, claiming a 52-10 win over Louisiana Monroe to cover a 37.5-point lead last week.

Best College Football Predictions for Week 2

One of the college picks the model is high on in Week 2: Pittsburgh Panthers (+6) stay in the gap against the Tennessee Volunteers in a 3:30 p.m. ET game at Acrisure Stadium of Pittsburgh. Both teams are coming off high-scoring wins in Week 1, although Pittsburgh’s win came against a quality opponent.

The Panthers handed the Vols a 41-34 loss at Neyland Stadium last year, so they’ll be looking to sweep the home-and-away series on Saturday. Tennessee has only been a 7-plus road favorite seven times since 2008, and four of those opportunities have come against Vanderbilt. The Vols approach that number over time, providing value to the Panthers as big underdogs.

Pittsburgh is the defending ACC champion and is coming off an impressive win over West Virginia. Transfer quarterback Kedon Slovis threw for 308 yards and a touchdown, while Rodney Hammond rushed for 74 yards and two scores. That line opened with Tennessee favored by just 4.5 points, so the pattern has found value on Pittsburgh now that the line has moved.

Another prediction: Iowa State (+3.5) remains in the gap on the road against Iowa at 4 p.m. ET Saturday. In a game that featured twice as many punts (21) as total points (10), Iowa won on the scoreboard 7-3 against a lowly FCS opponent, but they may have lost in public perception. The Hawkeyes had 14 possessions and could only muster one field goal, needing two safeties to reach seven points.

Iowa has now scored just two total touchdowns in its last three games dating back to last year as its offense, which ranked 99th (out of 130 teams) in scoring in 2021, does not seem to have improved. That will make it tough against a Cyclones team that lost 42 to another FCS school in Week 1, with WR Xavier Hutchinson catching three touchdowns. Hutchinson has led the Big 12 in catches each of the past two years, and he should finish with as many receptions as Iowa’s top two WRs combined.

The battle to hoist the Cy-Hawk Trophy should end at the very end, but the pattern keeps Iowa State in the gap as a 3.5-point underdog over 50% of the time. See what other teams the model likes here.
