College Football Preview - Week 2 Odds & Predictions
By Jake Thompson

We are back for another year of college football betting predictions and are coming off an exciting year where we finished 56-49-1 against the point spread while making picks on all of the big games.  The college football season started off slowly last year but we finished with a flurry as our predictions in bowl games went 20-10 against the point spread.  There are plenty of great games set for Saturday's week 2 college football schedule and we'll tell you who will win the big ones now.

College Football Year-to-Date Record: 0-0

#14 USC at #13 Stanford -3college football predictions

USC looked great in week 1 against a Fresno State team that lost one of the best quarterbacks in college football history but I expect them to have much more difficulty scoring against Stanford in week 2.  The Trojans have a new coaching staff and new schemes which means a slow start for most squads and the Cardinal have a huge edge in the starting quarterback category with Kevin Hogan.  Look for Stanford to roll here by double digits.

#15 Ole Miss -19 at Vanderbilt

The Rebels took a little while to get going in their week 1 game against Boise State but once the offense started to click they overmatched their smaller school foe.  Ole Miss figures to be among the top rated SEC offenses and defenses this season, while Vanderbilt is in the midst of a rebuilding effort with a new coaching staff.  The Commodores lost by 30 at home against a very average Temple squad and figure to get steamrolled on Saturday.  Ole Miss by however many they feel like winning by.

#7 Michigan State at #3 Oregon -13.5

This line confuses me quite a bit since Michigan State is very experienced and plays a lot like a Stanford team that has given Oregon huge problems over the last few seasons.  The Ducks play very few legitimate defenses in the Pac 12 and their offense simply won't work like they are accustomed to against the Spartans' excellent "D".  Look for Michigan State to limit what Oregon usually does on offense and I think they can win this game outright despite the betting odds showing they are overmatched.

Michigan at #16 Notre Dame -4

The Wolverines have an experienced quarterback returning in Devin Gardner, while Notre Dame gets back Everett Gholson after he sat out last season due to academics.  These offenses are both stronger than they were last season and I think Michigan's defense has enough experience coming back to improve a bit as well.  This is a tossup game so you want to take the Wolverines as an underdog in a matchup that should come down to a late field goal.

Virginia Tech at #8 Ohio State -10

The Buckeyes looked just fine after losing Heisman Trophy candidate Braxton Miller to another arm injury as they rolled through their opener against Navy.  Ohio State figures to have an excellent defense and you know that Urban Meyer offenses will always produce.  Virginia Tech has a great defense every season and their offense figures to be improved after undergoing a scheme change in the offseason.  Ultimately Ohio State is at home and is much more experienced with their offensive gameplan so I think they can win by 14-17.  If this matchup happened later in the season I'd likely favor Virginia Tech at these odds, but this is too much, too soon for the Hokies.
