2019 College Football Week 2 SU Betting Picks

Written by on September 2, 2019

Week 1 of the college football season will come to a close on Monday night when the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals square off in primetime. It has been a great opening week, with the favorites to win it all this season all getting through their opening games without too much trouble. That means that it’s time to start looking ahead to Week 2, as we look at some SU picks for the week.

We will also have ATS and point total picks coming your way, so be sure to watch for those. For the SU picks, we have tried to focus on games where the spread is close, meaning that the teams involved are evenly matched, as that should help deliver better college football odds.

2019 College Football Week 2 SU Betting Picks

Purdue Boilermakers over Vanderbilt Commodores

It’s tough to really get a bead on a team when they open their season against a top 4 team, but it’s also fair to suggest that the Vanderbilt Commodores never really threatened the Georgia Bulldogs in any real way. They should have an easier time against Purdue, but it’s also never easy to go on the road and get a result against any team in the college game.

The Boilermakers will a little unlucky to lose 34-31 to Nevada in their opener on the road, but I like them to bounce back at home. Purdue are 13-6 SU in their last 19 Week 2 games, which is a very decent record.

College Football Week 2 Betting Trends

  • Commodores are 4-8 SU in their last 12 games
  • Boilermakers are 13-6 SU in their last 19 games played in week 2
  • Boilermakers are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games against an opponent in the Southeast conference

Syracuse Orange (-140) over Maryland Terrapins

Both the Orange and the Terrapins are coming into this one with a 1-0 record after picking up the win in Week 1. Both teams held the opposition scoreless, and while they were both going against lesser opponents, it’s still always a good sigh when you keep an opponent off the board.

While you could look at Maryland as having the slight edge on home field this weekend, they are going against a Syracuse team that has won 7 of their last 8 overall, which is perhaps why they are slight favorites here. That also points us to the fact that the Orange have covered in 10 of their last 13 games on the road, which makes them a solid SU pick.

College Football Week 2 Betting Trends

  • Orange are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games played on a Saturday
  • Orange are 2-11 SU in their last 13 games against an opponent in the Big 10 conference
  • Terrapins are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games played in September
  • Terrapins are 8-1 SU in their last 9 games played in week 2

Nebraska Cornhuskers over Colorado Buffaloes

There are times when the numbers and stats can pull you in two different directions, which is very much the case when looking at this Nebraska Cornhuskers team. They have not been a good SU bet on the road of late, losing 7 in a row away from home.

Nebraska should be one of your betting picks for the 2019 College Football Week 2.

While that might immediately look like a major red flag, it is worth noting that they have taken 5 of the last 7 meetings versus the Buffaloes. Colorado won their season opener, but that was their first win in 8 attempts going back to last season, all of which points to Nebraska winning a close one here.

College Football Week 2 Betting Trends

  • Cornhuskers are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games against Colorado
  • Cornhuskers are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games against an opponent in the Pacific 12 conference
  • Buffaloes are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games
  • Buffaloes are 12-3 SU in their last 15 games played in September

UCLA Bruins (-265) over San Diego State Aztecs

Getting this UCLA team turned around and back on track is going to be no easy feat, with their season getting off to a rough start after a 14-24 loss to the Cincinnati Bearcats. The Bruins will head back home for Week 2, welcoming in an Aztecs team that is coming off a less than stellar 6-0 win in their season opener.

We may very well revisit this game in out point total picks, as this looks like a low-scoring game all the way. UCLA have won 5 of their last 6 games versus teams from the Mountain West, so let’s take them to improve on that.

College Football Week 2 Betting Trends

  • Aztecs are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games
  • Aztecs are 15-5 SU in their last 20 games on the road
  • Bruins are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games against an opponent in the Mountain West conference
  • Bruins are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games played in week 2
