After two weeks of action, Alabama has clearly established itself as a serious threat to win a second-straight national championship this season. It destroyed Michigan 41-14 on opening day as a 13-point favorite and cruised to a 35-0 win over Western Kentucky as a 38-point home favorite last week. While defense continues to be the backbone of this team, the offense has put up 76 points behind a very balanced attack of running and throwing the ball, which is sort of a twist for this team.
The college football season is in full swing and the action will begin to get even better as several teams head into conference play. This brings the football betting consensus report into play as a true handicapping tool that should be used every week to make money betting on college football.
Every week at Bang the Book we will go over the report and pick out a few games that we have noticed. This will include a winning pick on the busy college football weekend.
One of the most electrifying players in the nation will be back on display on Saturday afternoon at the Horseshoe for NCAA football betting fans, as the Ohio State Buckeyes face off with the Cal Golden Bears.
This is the last chance that Head Coach Jeff Tedford has to impressive outside of conference play, and in the likelihood that this one is lost and five games aren’t won in the Pac-12 schedule this year, odds have it, Tedford is out the door.
The Maryland Terrapins host the UCONN Huskies on Saturday, at 12:30 pm est. The Huskies are -2.5 point road favorites with a total of 43. The early betting action at one offshore sportsbook is favoring UCONN to the tune of 88%. UCONN is 1-1 with a win over UMASS and a loss to NC STATE while Maryland is off to a 2-0 start to their season with wins over William & Mary and Temple.
No one wants this game more than UCONN fans. It’s a their first crack at former UCONN head coach Randy Edsall. Edsall, who was responsible for putting UCONN football on the map, basically left town in the middle of the night when he accepted the Maryland job.
After another great week of the college football betting season, we are back for Week 3, as we look at the top teams, players, and trends of note for the this week on NCAA football schedule.
There aren’t all that many teams that QB Matt Barkley hasn’t beaten in his collegiate career that he has played. In fact, the only one that he has taken on that he has zero career wins against is the Stanford Cardinal, whom he and his USC Trojans get a chance to battle this week.

Here at Bang the Book, we are set to talk about the NCAA football betting lines for Week 3. Here are the most important numbers that you need to remember for the week!
0: The number of wins that the Colorado Buffaloes and Colorado State Rams had in Week 2. That surely doesn’t seem like all that much of a big deal, as these two teams have lost on the same week time and time again. However, this is notable because they both lost to FCS schools. Yikes.
What could be a relatively ugly game kicks off on Friday night for NCAA football betting aficionados, as the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels play host to the Washington State Cougars.
The Cougs just haven’t gotten off to a good start to their season as of yet. They were beaten and beaten badly by the BYU Cougars on the first day of the season, and they turned around the next week and were nearly had by the FCS’ Eastern Washington Eagles.
The 2012 Big East season kicks off for college football betting fans on Thursday night from the Sunshine State, where the South Florida Bulls take on the Rutgers Scarlet Knights.
The Scarlet Knights really haven’t showed all that much yet, because they haven’t played all that much of a schedule. They weren’t exactly the most dominating team in the world against either the Tulane Green Wave or the Howard Bison, and neither one of those foes are exactly the cream of the crop on the team’s schedule.
The biggest game of the week in college football was going to be the game between the Arkansas Razorbacks and the Alabama Crimson Tide. However after last week that game could change dramatically. In a stunning upset the Razorbacks were …
