Easy Money or Fool’s Gold? Opening week betting trends in college football can appear lopsided but the monster point spreads tilt things back to even the betting field.

Week 1 offers some terrific local flavor with the return of the Backyard Brawl between Pitt and West Virginia, while top schools like Georgia, Alabama and Clemson (who have failed to cover 7 straight games in September) are big home favorites.

The Notre Dame vs Ohio State battle has national title implications with the No. 2 Buckeyes hosting the No. 5 ranked Fighting Irish.
