Hello friends. Week 1 of the college football season wasn’t an ideal start for the brand and as such, we’ve had to adjust our principles and expectations for various teams after a rough showing at the book.

While Week 1 was full of marquee matchups, Week 2 features only two ranked matchups — No. 3 Georgia at No. 24 South Carolina and No. 17 USC at No. 10 Stanford — which means the casual fan interest may wane a bit. That doesn’t mean there aren’t edges to find on the odds sheet, and that’s what we’re hoping to do as we look to battle back to .500 this week in order to start making money this season.

We’re going back to the well with a few teams that provided us winners in Week 1, as well as introducing favorites and Overs to the column for the first time this season as I have 16 plays for some unknown reason. I know, some of you need a moment to take all that in. Let’s first take a look at the miserable record I’ve been staring at all week and then dive in to this week’s selections (as always, lines courtesy the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook).

Last Week: 5-9
Season: 5-9
