2019 College Football Week 2 ATS Betting Picks

Written by on September 2, 2019

The opening week of the college football season delivered a couple of minor surprises, but no real shocks. The top teams all made it through unscathed, with the best game of the weekend arguably being the one that saw Auburn rally from behind to take out the Oregon Ducks.

There is still the business of the Monday night game to take care of, with Notre Dame and Louisville going head to head, but we can still take a look ahead at Week 2 to get an idea of where our money might be best spent. Keep in mind that the college football odds mentioned here are early spreads, so be sure to pay attention to any changes throughout the week.

2019 College Football Week 2 SU Betting Picks

Ohio Bobcats at Pittsburgh Panthers

We get off to an earlier start than usual this Saturday, with this game set to kick-off at 11 AM. That gives us an opportunity to get some money in the bank before the mid-afternoon games begin. The Bobcats come into this one having gone winless in their last 5 games against ACC opposition, but it’s not the SU bet that we are looking at here.

Pittsburgh don’t tend to do well in September, going 4-8 SU in their last 12 games in that month, and while they are the favorite to win here, I have a feeling that this will be close. Ohio has covered in 8 of their last 12 Saturday games, so I like them to cover here.

College Football Week 2 Betting Trends

  • Bobcats are 8-4 ATS in their last 12 games
  • Bobcats are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games played on a Saturday
  • Panthers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games
  • Panthers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games at home

Army Black Knights at Michigan Wolverines

The Michigan Wolverines are coming of a less than impressive 40-21 win over Middle Tennessee in Week 1, a game where they looked rather disjointed on offense. This is actually a much tougher proposition for the Wolverines, as Army have made a habit of winning, reeling off 10-straight if we include last season, too.

Army has the ability to put some points on the board and wear down defenses with their ground and pound game, so I would not be surprised to see them keep this one a little closer than the 23-point spread.

College Football Week 2 Betting Trends

  • Black Knights are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games
  • Wolverines are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games
  • Wolverines are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games played on a Saturday

USF Bulls at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

It’s never good to get the season off to a losing start, but there are losses that are certainly excusable. USF losing 49-0 to Wisconsin and the Yellow Jackets going down 52-14 are losses that we definitely expected to see in Week 1.

USF vs Georgia Tech is one of the best games for College Football Week 2.

Now, these teams have an opportunity to get back to winning ways in Week 2 in what looks to be a fairly even match-up. The one thing that stands out here is that USF are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 Week 2 games, while the Yellow Jackets are a mere 1-4 ATS in their last 5 September games. A slight nod to the Bulls here.

College Football Week 2 Betting Trends

  • Bulls are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games played in week 2
  • Bulls are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against an opponent in the Atlantic Coast conference
  • Yellow Jackets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games
  • Yellow Jackets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games played in September

BYU Cougars (-3 ½) at Tennessee Volunteers

There are some trends that make you lean in a definite direction when it comes time to wager, but there are also hunch plays that go against that based on what you saw from one team or another. The Tennessee Volunteers saw their season get off to a brutal start, losing to Georgia Southern of the FCS in Week 1.

This Saturday, they are going against a BYU team that has failed to cover in each of their last 8 games versus teams from the SEC. On the flipside, the Cougars are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 road games and could well take advantage of a wounded Volunteers team this weekend.

College Football Week 2 Betting Trends

  • Brigham Young are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games on the road
  • Brigham Young are 0-8 ATS in their last 8 games against an opponent in the Southeast conference
  • Tennessee are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games at home
  • Tennessee are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games played on a Saturday
