Here at Bang the Book, we have all of the top matchups of the 2013 NCAA football betting campaign covered! Today, we’re taking a look at the best matchups for Week 1!
Are you all revved up and ready to go for the 2013 college football season? Week 1 is here, and that means it’s time to break down all of the NCAA football odds that you have in front of you to sink your teeth into!
The 2013 college football season kicks things off the weekend of Aug.30 and the high-powered SEC will begin its quest to extend it record of producing consecutive BCS National Champions to eight. Alabama will be going for its third-straight national title and fourth in five years.
The first real week of the preseason is here and Week 1 is often the most unpredictable, as starters will typically play one or two series, with the second unit playing the remainder of the half. The second half often consists of third-string players, along with a number of free agents and players unlikely to make the final roster.
One of the most popular things to bet on is week one of the NFL season as sports bettors look to bet on the early lines and seize value.
The season opener features the Baltimore Ravens versus the Denver Broncos. Although the Ravens are the defending champions, Peyton Manning and the Broncos are 9.5 point favorites in the first game of the season.
There are two different approaches when it comes to betting the first few weeks of a new NFL season. Some bettors like to wager early, believing that is when it is possible to get an edge on the oddsmakers. Others prefer to go slowly at the beginning, electing to wait until teams have played several games before stepping in once they are better able to assess how a team is going to perform.
Both the Boston Bruins and the New York Rangers pulled off great escapes from the first round of the playoffs. Now, the two are going to collide at the TD Garden for the first game of a seven-game set in NHL playoff betting action on Thursday night.
The 2013 NHL playoffs get started on Tuesday night at the United Center, where the Chicago Blackhawks will hope to get an early jump on the Minnesota Wild in the first game of the 1/8 Western Conference Quarterfinals series.
The Cincinnati Reds and the St. Louis Cardinals have a deep hatred for each other in the NL Central, and that bad blood will continue to spill over on Tuesday night when these two square off for the middle game of a three-game set at Busch Stadium.
The Chicago Bulls have stormed into the postseason as one of the top contenders in the conference. However, they are the underdogs in Game 1 of the playoffs against the Brooklyn Nets in the first playoff game ever played at the Barclays Center.
