We are quickly closing in on the opening week of the 2017 college football season. Let’s take a look at the betting spreads and totals for the opening week of the new campaign. Be sure to check back often, as links to individual game previews will be added as we get closer to the games starting.

Week 1 College Football Betting Odds: Point Spreads & Game Totals

I’ve put together a complete schedule, which actually covers multiple weeks. The first games will be played on Saturday, August 26th. However, the real week doesn’t start until the following Wednesday. From there we got games every night all the way through Labor Day on Monday, September 4th.

While there are some big games on tap to start off the new campaign, this year’s card fails in comparison to last year. I don’t think there’s any arguing the top games that will have everyone’s attention.

The first two will be on Saturday, September 2nd. We have No. 9 Michigan taking on  No. 16 Florida at AT&T Stadium and No. 1Alabama facing off against  No. 3 Florida State in Atlanta.

Two quality matchups follow on Sunday with UCLA vs Texas A&M and No. 22 Virginia Tech against West Virginia. The week concludes with No. 24 Tennessee squaring off with Georgia Tech.

Another notable game for opening week is an early Big 10 clash with No. 2 Ohio State (-20) on the road against Indiana. Other contests that caught my eye are North Carolina vs Cal, NC State (-4) vs South Carolina, Notre Dame vs Temple, Kentucky vs Southern Miss, No. 4 USC  vs Western Michigan, No. 17 Louisville vs Purdue, Vanderbilt vs Middle Tennessee, and No. 12 LSU vs BYU.

I’ve included both the opening and current lines for each game. Keep in mind that the early odds are back from late May and early June. Still waiting on a bunch of the totals. Once they become available, I will add those to the tables below. Note that only the games with two FBS teams facing off against each other are listed. Several other top teams are playing in Week 1, but are up against FCS opponents.

Now is also a great time to get your NCAAF win totals future bets in. Want to know who the oddsmakers like to win it all? Check out our college football championship odds page, as it’s updated all season long.
