College Football Picks & Odds: Top 5 Best Bets Against the Spread Week 2

Full disclosure, we took it on the chin last week. We picked the wrong week to go with the favorites, as we saw a historic week where three top 10 teams lost which contributed to going 1-4 on the opening weekend. What did we learn? There are teams that many projected to take a step forward that are not as good as we thought they would be. LSU showed that have real holes to fix and may not be the SEC contender they were once thought to be. Houston picked up where they left off last season and look to be as strong as any team in the country with an intimidating defense. Alabama proved they are still Bama and could be scary good this season with the unique threat Jalen Hurts poses at quarterback. Opening week is always challenging given no one knows exactly how good teams are until they play. This week, we look to take advantage of seeing each team play and adjust our assessments accordingly. We try to get back to winning by taking advantage of a few teams being overlooked. All odds listed are courtesy of OddsShark and are subject to change.
