College Football Betting Odds

August 24 may feel like a long way away, but if you’re jonesing for some college football betting odds, DraftKings Sportsbook has what you are looking for. Some of the Week 0 and Week 1 odds are out for the college football schedule in 2024 and bettors are sifting through the early-season intel.

The transfer portal and NIL have turned CFB into the wild, wild west on steroids, so it can be a little bit tricky to keep up with which players have gone where, but at least it remains fairly easy to know who graduated and got drafted. Still, we have some spreads now and that means getting into a college football mindset is a little easier.

Week 0 and Week 1 have a handful of really interesting games, especially Notre Dame/Texas A&M, LSU/USC and Texas/Michigan, but you also notice two FCS teams in the mix in South Dakota State and North Dakota State.

Games of the Year lines for the rest of the season are up as well, but here are some early Week 0 and Week 1 thoughts based on the above lines:

Georgia Tech +13.5 vs. Florida State

This ACC clash is across the pond in Dublin, where Oregon State transfer D.J. Uiagalelei finds himself back in the conference after transferring from Clemson. Perhaps DJU can keep up the improvements he found with former OSU head coach Jonathan Smith (now at Michigan State), but that’s a big number with a new team against a Yellow Jackets crew that won a bowl last season and returns 14 starters, including starting QB Haynes King.

Minnesota -1 vs. North Carolina

This game will feature two new starting QBs, as Minnesota saw Athan Kaliakmanis transfer to Rutgers, while North Carolina saw Drake Maye head to the NFL as the third overall pick. The Golden Gophers have upgraded considerably at the position with New Hampshire transfer Max Brosmer, who led the FCS ranks in passing.

Before Kaliakmanis left, Minnesota was top 20 in returning production per Bill Connelly, while North Carolina ranked in the bottom 10. Perhaps LSU transfer Max Johnson will be the next star QB in Tar Heel land, but UNC has issues with physicality and good rushing teams and PJ Fleck’s Minnesota squad should be able to get back to its roots on the ground. But, Brosmer is a huge upgrade and they should be a much more balanced offense on the whole.

Nebraska -6.5 vs. Colorado

In a battle of head coaches who go about things in very, very different ways, I prefer the Cornhuskers to the Buffaloes. Matt Rhule’s squad ranks in the top five in returning production and Nebraska will be a popular team to bet on this season. After using a bevy of quarterbacks and falling short in five one-score games, the Dylan Raiola era is ready to begin in Lincoln. The uber-talented five-star freshman shined in the Nebraska spring game and he should debut here.

The Buffaloes return quite a bit of production as well, including Shedeur Sanders and Travis Hunter, but it has been a revolving door in Boulder with players entering and exiting and continuity felt like a major issue all year long. Maybe the OL will be fixed with five-star freshman Jordan Seaton at offensive tackle, but it’ll take more than that.
