Beat The Odds: Week 1 College Football Predictions & Betting Picks

Last week’s college football predictions from the Beat The Odds College Football Show crew provided us with a .500 week. Not bad, but we’re going to be hunting much more profit in the coming weeks.

Alex Kirshner’s college football predictions and picks went 2-1, with his lone loss coming when Nebraska went to Illinois and forgot how to play football. Jason Kirk was all over the Ilini being a strong upset pick but missed on his other two predictions.

As for last week’s Picks of the Week from our college football predictions, Alex’s under in the UCLA-Hawaii game was a no-sweat bet.

This week, Alex Kirshner and Jason Kirk once again join host Katelyn Heffler to break down their picks for the upcoming week ahead. Is it called Week 1? Week 2? No one really knows, but what we do know is that there is a ton of money to be made on the board with our first full slate of college football, so we have a ton of college football predictions coming your way.

You can find Katelyn, Alex and Jason’s college football predictions on OddsChecker each and every week, going live on Tuesday for the week ahead. Make sure you subscribe to the OddsChecker YouTube channel so their college football predictions drop right in your feed every week.
