NCAAF Game Central
The Cornhuskers are the heavy college football odds favorite for opening day despite losing six straight to finish the 2021 season. Coach Scott Frost’s seat is getting warmer and he reshuffled the staff this offseason knowing how critical these upcoming games are for his future. The defense was middle-of-the-road a year ago and can’t afford to take a step back, but the Huskers lose some key contributors on that side. Northwestern also lost six straight to finish the season and was not competitive for the most part. However, Pat Fitzgerald has proved he can turn things around in a hurry. Improvement on the defensive side is a must after giving up 429.5 yards per game a year ago, and we wouldn’t automatically pencil the Wildcats in for another last-place campaign.

What Are NCAAF Picks Against The Spread
The team you like is favored to win big, and you like that bet but don’t want to risk $900 to win $100. That’s where our expert college football picks against the spread come in to play. Betting against the spread in college football means not only are you betting on a team to win, you need them to win by a certain amount in order to cash your ticket. Say Alabama has a moneyline of -900 against Texas A&M. That equates to point spread of about 16 points, meaning Alabama would need to win by 17 or more for you to win. You only risk $110 to win $100, which might make you more comfortable.
You can also do the reverse. Maybe you like Texas A&M in that game. A $100 bet would win you $510 on the moneyline. Not a bad return. But if you’d rather be a bit more cautious, you can take Texas A&M and the points, giving you a much better chance at cashing a ticket, even if it is for a smaller payout.
