Week 1 college football picks, odds, 2022 best bets from proven expert: This three-leg parlay pays 6-1

Utah State has become a perennial postseason team in recent years, playing in bowl games in four of the last five seasons. The Aggies wrapped up their 2021 campaign with a 24-13 win over Oregon State in the LA Bowl, giving them some momentum heading into the 2022 college football season. They opened the year with a win over UConn in Week 0, but they are 42-point underdogs against No. 1 Alabama in the latest Week 1 college football odds at Caesars Sportsbook. The Crimson Tide are coming off another national championship game appearance, and they return 2021 Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young at quarterback.

They also have Heisman candidate Will Anderson Jr. defensively, making it difficult to envision Utah State extending its seven-game road winning streak. Which team should you be backing with your Week 1 college football bets?

Top Week 1 college football expert predictions

One of Sallee’s top college football picks for Week 1: He is taking the Under 54 in the Georgia vs. Oregon matchup on Saturday afternoon. The Bulldogs lost five defensive stars in the first round of the NFL draft, but they still have talent at all three levels on that side of the ball. 

They are facing an Oregon offense that is going to need some time to adjust to a quarterback change, as Auburn transfer Bo Nix is taking over as the starter.

Georgia went under the betting total in eight of its final 10 games last season. The Bulldogs are not going to be a flashy offensive team as they want to control the pace and be methodical with Stetson Bennett at quarterback. Sallee expects Georgia to take an early lead before slowing the game down and cruising in a low-scoring contest. See who else Sallee likes at SportsLine.

Sallee has also found two other college football picks he’s high on, including a spread he says is too small because a coach is going to run up the score in a big way. You can only see his picks at SportsLine.
