Overrated 2022 College Football Teams to Bet Against

By Hank Blaine

In college football, turnover is the norm, which is why we shouldn’t expect teams that played well last season to play well this season. Some teams, like Ohio State, Alabama, and Georgia, are good every season. Other teams fall off, but don’t fall off much. Then there are teams that for some reason always attract backers. Check out 7 teams that should show underlay odds throughout the 2022 NCAA College Football season.

Texas Longhorns

Fans and sports bettors are excited about the Longhorns, but they’re excited about next season’s team because Arch Manning, the top recruit in the nation and a quarterback, decided to enroll in Austin.

This season’s Texas squad should have a hard time navigating a tough Big 12 schedule. Texas will win many games straight up. Covering spreads should be difficult.

Oklahoma Sooners

Like Texas, Oklahoma plays a tough Big 12 schedule. Not only that, but the Sooners lost coach Lincoln Riley. Brett Venables will find success. But he’s a defensive guru.

Oklahoma starting quarterback Dillon Gabriel transferred from UCF. Gabriel is a decent signal-caller, but he could struggle in the Big 12. Playing against Oklahoma could be a profitable move in 2022.

Clemson Tigers

Dabo Swinney believes Clemson bounces back with a good season. But the ACC is much deeper in 2022 than it has been in the past decade. Miami will be a good football team. Mario Cristobal knows what he’s doing.

The Hurricanes will boast a talented defensive line. NC State should be the ACC’s best team. Clemson has mystique. They’ll be an overlay favorite in almost every one of their games. The Tigers will be lucky to cover in half.

LSU Tigers

LSU is receiving massive action in Vegas to win the National Championship. Brian Kelly’s team will be competitive, but it’s difficult to see LSU beating Alabama, Florida, or Texas A&M this season.

The Tigers’ roster isn’t as good. LSU should also struggle versus Mississippi State. Some of what’s going with Texas is going on with LSU. Kelly has recruited well for next season, not this season.

Pittsburgh Panthers

You can’t lose your star quarterback and star receiver and expect to cover underlay spreads in football games. Quarterback Kenny Pickett plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers in the NFL.

Wide receiver Jordan Addison transferred to USC to play for Lincoln Riley. The Panthers’ defense should be very good. But questions on offense will make Pittsburgh a play against.

Oregon Ducks

Last season, Oregon head coach Dan Lanning worked with Kirby Smart at Georgia to develop one of the most feared defenses in college football history. Lanning doesn’t have the players at Oregon to create a defense close to Georgia’s level.

The Ducks’ offense is also a mystery. Bo Nix transfers from Auburn to play quarterback. Nix will struggle to find a wideout he can count on. This season, mighty Oregon could fall flat. Playing against the Ducks makes sense.

Michigan Wolverines

Jim Harbaugh led the Wolverines to a dream season in 2021. Don’t expect a Big Ten Championship and College Playoff repeat performance. The Wolverines will be a good team, but the offense wasn’t electrifying last season and it won’t be this season. Also, losing a defensive player like Aidan Hutchinson will have a serious impact.

On Sep. 3, the Wolverines host an upperclassmen laden Colorado State team. The Rams should push Michigan to the brink. Things will get tougher for the Wolverines once they start Big Ten play.
