The biggest spread on the early lines belongs to the North Carolina Tar Heels. Coming up for the Tar Heels this week are the Charlotte 49ers, and they’ll opened up as a 26-point favorite. The Tar Heels have won four straight against the spread, and when favored by 20-plus points they’re 5-1 ATS in tier last six.
Another big favorite on the opening odds are the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. They’ll face the South Florida Bulls and opened up as 24.5-point favorites. Notre Dame was a 21.5-point favorite against the Duke Blue Devils last week and failed to cover in a 27-13 win.
Rounding out our three-pack of 20-plus favorites are the Oklahoma State Cowboys. They begin their season this week against the Tulsa Golden Hurricane and they opened as 20.5-point favorites. The Cowboys are 5-1 ATS in their last six games and against Tulsa they’ve covered in four straight.
