We don’t have a full college football slate to bet on yet, but this Week 0 card is a good warm-up before we really get into the action after that. There are a few games that have intriguing matchups, but more importantly, provide betting value.

Betting sides and totals are definitely more popular, but we can often find more value on more niche markets, such as derivatives and props, especially if you take the time to compare odds across different sportsbooks. Although the options are limited this week, there are two team totals that stick out on Saturday’s five-game schedule.

For more advice on full-game sides and totals, be sure to check out PFF Greenline before these games kickoff.
