Oddsmakers have recently released their Week 1 odds for the 2018 college football season. Below you will find a full schedule for opening week, which officially gets underway with a couple games on Saturday, August 25th. Note that only games with two FBS teams playing against each other are listed.

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

There’s four games on tap for Week 1 that stand out above the rest. Two of those come on Saturday, August 31st. The first is an afternoon showdown between Washington and Auburn, which will be held on a neutral site at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The other is a prime time clash that has Notre Dame hosting Michigan.

You also have Miami and LSU facing off at AT&T Stadium on Sunday and the Week 1 finale that has Florida State hosting Virginia Tech on Monday.

Two other games that I’m sure will get plenty of attention is Oklahoma hosting Lane Kiffin’s FAU Owls and a neutral site game in Orlando between Alabama and Louisville.

While these are the games the media will focus on, professional handicappers like myself are interested in just about every game on the card. It’s all about finding the best value when making my premium selections, not just putting out plays on the biggest games of the week.

As we get closer to the season starting, our staff will be previewing a number of the games and giving out a free betting lean on the spread or total, so be sure to check back in August for some free betting advice (links to our game previews will be included in the tables below).

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.
