College football betting odds: Big Ten Week 2 games

In the college football betting odds for Week 2 games, the Penn State-Pittsburgh game provide much interest.

The odds below are from VegasInsider. Penn State opens up as a huge favorite against rival Pittsburgh. The Nittany Lions are favored by 18.5 points in the opening line. Last season, Penn State went to Pitt and lost, 42-39, in the rivals’ first meeting since 2000.

In another rivalry game, Iowa and Iowa State meet. In a battle of in-state 1-0 teams, the Hawkeyes are only a 1.5-point road favorite. That’s a huge difference from a season ago, when Iowa rolled the Cyclones, 42-3. That’s the closest line for a game involving a Big Ten team, at least as of Sunday afternoon. Northwestern is a 2-point favorite at Duke and Indiana is a 2-point road favorite at Virginia.

Right now the biggest favorites are top-10 teams Michigan and Wisconsin. The Wolverines are favored by 31.5 points against Cincinnati. Wisconsin is a 31-point favorite against Florida Atlantic.

There is no line yet in the big Ohio State-Oklahoma game.
