College Football Betting Odds For Opening Weekend


The 2017 college football season is beginning to near and the oddsmakers in Las Vegas are working feverishly to set its betting lines for opening weekend.

This season, we are going to be treated to one of the greatest opening weekends in history with a number of marquee, non-conference meetings between top Power 5 programs.

The highlight of opening weekend is a Chick-fil-A Kickoff meeting between two of the best teams entering the season, Florida State and Alabama. Alabama is more than a touchdown favorite in that game which will immediately establish the winner as the national championship favorite.

Michigan and Florida also go head-to-head, with the Wolverines a 4.5-point favorite.
