Week 1 College Football Against the Spread Predictions

Braden Gall offers his top picks against the spread for Week 1.
Week 1 College Football Against the Spread Predictions

College Football is back and so are my weekly picks against the spread. I will do my best to give sage and timely advice every Friday morning… for entertainment purposes only, of course.

 

Week 1 is the best week of the year as so much is unknown about most teams and spreads are generally off kilter.

 

Look for programs you think are underrated in the preseason and are facing young teams with lots of new starters. Public perception is further askew this week than any other week of the year.
