Alabama Crimson Tide -20.0 at Texas Longhorns

The Texas Longhorns host the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday morning in a game that will have plenty of viewers. This is a chance for Texas to prove that they can compete on a national stage, but Alabama will be looking to make a statement.

Texas has a terrific running back in Bijan Robinson, and he is going to need to have a great game in this one. Quarterback Quinn Ewers also put up some big numbers in Week 1, but that didn’t come against the Alabama defense.

Not only can Alabama completely shut down an opponent, but quarterback Bryce Young is one of the best players in the country. Young accounted for six touchdowns in the Week 1 win, and he should have another big day.

Texas will keep it close for a half, but it will be all Alabama as they blow this game open and cover the large spread.

Duke Blue Devils at Northwestern Wildcats (-9.0)

A pair of 1-0 teams meet up in Evanston, Illinois, on Saturday as the Northwestern Wildcats host the Duke Blue Devils. Both teams also had a pretty impressive victory to begin the year, and that could set up for a great game.

Duke picked up a 30-0 win over Temple in Week 1, and the play of that defense was one of the most shocking parts of that game. The Blue Devils racked up 500 yards of offense in that win, and they will need a similar performance in this one.

Northwestern stunned Nebraska to begin the year, and they were able to do it with a balanced offense. Quarterback Ryan Hilinski gives this Wildcats team a new wrinkle on offense, and they could have another big game in this one.

Take Northwestern -9.0 over Duke as the Wildcats completely control this one.

Tennessee Volunteers ML at Pittsburgh Panthers

One of the best games of the weekend could take place in Pittsburgh as the Panthers are ready to host the Tennessee Volunteers. Both teams are ranked in the Top 25, and each team picked up a win to begin the year.

Tennessee had no trouble in Week 1 as they scored 59 points to crush Ball State. Pittsburgh had to grind out a win over West Virginia, but the Panthers were taking on a much better opponent.

Tennessee is a 6.5-point favorite on the road, but this game should be tighter than that. Taking Tennessee is the way to go, but you want to simply take the moneyline in this matchup.
