With kickoff for Saturday's Week 1 action in college football just around the corner, bettors and fans are anxiously getting in their last minute wagers as they settle in for a massive day of games.
Plenty of teams in the Top 25 match up against each other throughout the day, primarily the No. 5 Notre Dame Fighting Irish and No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes; who meet up from Ohio Stadium in Columbus at 7:30 p.m. ET. The Irish-Buckeyes game is by far and way the most-bet game at multiple sportsbooks, including both at WynnBET as well as FanDuel Sportsbook.
Using the latest odds and data from WynnBET Sportsbook, here are the most notable betting splits for Saturday's college football action.
Which College Football Week 1 Games and Teams Have the Most Betting Tickets?
MICHIGAN vs. Colorado State
The Michigan Wolverines own the most number of betting tickets to cover the massive spread at home when they welcome the Colorado State Rams to town.
After the Wolverines opened just over a four-touchdown favorite at home vs. the Rams, the line has ticked up another 2.5-3 points in favor of Michigan.
USC vs. Rice
New USC Trojans head coach, along with transfer quarterback Caleb Williams are receiving plenty of public support ahead of their home debuts against the Rice Owls at the L.A. Coliseum this afternoon.
The Trojans are the No. 2 most-bet team for Saturday's Week 1. Also note, that the temperature in southern California today plays into a notable betting trend that we highlighted in today's College Football Weather Report.
GEORGIA vs. Oregon
The reigning national champion Georgia Bulldogs are nearly 17-point favorites when they face Oregon at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Ga. for the Chick-fil-A kickoff at 3:30 p.m. ET.
The Bulldogs are WynnBET's third-most bet team today, with the spread hovering around -16 and -16.5 throughout the entire week.
Which College Football Week 1 Games and Teams Have the Most Betting Handle / Money?
NOTRE DAME (+15.5, +16) at Ohio State | OHIO STATE ML vs. Notre Dame
Both sides of tonight's prime time matchup between No. 5 Notre Dame and No. 2 Ohio State have been hit up by the sharps; taking in the most money of any game on the slate.
The team with the highest handle so far are the Fighting Irish at +16. Despite taking in the most cash, their line has moved from -14 at opening, up to as high as -16.
Part of the reason for this is that Ohio State on the moneyline is WynnBET's second-highest handle for Saturday's action. That number, in turn, moved from an opening line of -600 up to -800 ahead of this evening.
LOUISVILLE at Syracuse
The Louisville Cardinals are anywhere between 4.5 - 5.5 point road favorites when they head to the Carrier Dome to face the Syracuse Orange this evening. After opening at -2.5, sharps bet this number way up to nearly three points as of Saturday morning.
The Cardinals are WynnBET's third-highest handle game of Saturday's action.
