College Football Week 2: Picks and Predictions

College Football

Vengeance will be main theme of the bout that pits No. 5 Michigan State against No. 7 Oregon in East Lansing on Saturday night. The battle between the Spartans and the Ducks is undoubtedly the most anticipated matchup of what can only otherwise be described as a rather unintriguing Week 2 slate of college football games.

Unfortunately, the second week of the season is shaping up to be just as noncompetitive and uninteresting as the largely forgettable kickoff weekend.

When looking at Week 2 of the college football season from a betting standpoint, large spreads and big home favorites abound.

So who’s worth backing and who’s worth fading on the second Saturday of the season?

Here’s a look at every pick and prediction for College Football Week 2.

  • Memphis Tigers (-13)
