The unknowns continue to mount in the world of college football, resulting in instability in the gambling market. Each game description should start with a warning, “pending a non-COVID-19 disruption”. Week 2 was no different with the cancellation of Louisiana Tech vs. Baylor and Tulsa vs. Oklahoma State due to COVID-19 outbreaks.
Even games that are being played have become influenced by the current pandemic. Navy was flattened against BYU because of precautions during training camp that limited contact.
Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley made a statement that any COVID-19-related news from Norman would not be made public to maintain a competitive advantage. This added yet another layer of complexity to handicapping college football and must be factored into projections for the remainder of the season.
Now, let’s break down my five favorite bets for games that have “passed the scheduling test” for Week 2:
