Just Talk Pod:Free Money Fives: College Football Week 1

College Football Bets

Week 1 college football is finally upon us. And we have our favorite tradition. And that’s my Free Money Fives. Five picks against the spread. On an opening weekend that features amazing matchups it feels like Christmas. So let’s roll up our sleeves as Alabama Rolls Tide into another damn national championship.

Oklahoma -32 @Tulane 


Oklahoma tends to use week 1 against lower opponents to get their offense clicking. Tulane is a perfect opportunity to get their offense rolling. Expect the Sooners to blow out Tulane.


Georgia +3 vs Clemson (neutral field)


Even teams could easily be a pick ’em getting some free points. Look, I like Clemson more and I think they are a better team. But 3 points better on a neutral field? No thank you. Give me Georgia but Clemson wins narrowly 31-30.


Penn State +5.5 @ Wisconsin


Penn State has won 6 straight against Wisconsin. But Wisconsin has won 25 straight home openers. Something has to give right? Well yes, but whatever gives, this game will come down to the last possession.

UCLA +3 vs LSU 


Best Chip Kelly Team since he took over. Finally has his guys and his recruits. There is a reason LSU are only three point favorites. Vegas is begging us to take them. So don’t. Take UCLA.


Alabama -19.5 vs Miami (neutral field)


Alabama are world beaters. Do I really need to explain any more why I think Alabama is going to win this game? Probably not. Roll Tide.
